lol yeah!

I got FsPassenger yesterday and decided to try my luck with an Air Jamaica Airbus. I was not prepared for engine failure right after takeoff.... OMG... the screams... I am one who likes the sound loud on my games but that took me by surprise. Here I am scrambling to keep the jet aloft, and yelling at this fictitious flight attendant to keep them quiet back there cause I cannot concentrate...

I ended up lining it up along the beach and putting her down in about 8 foot of water.... according to the list it said 15 out of 192 ppl died and like 30 something injured. I did not save it.
