Fly Away Simulation

Easjet- Liverpool to Belfast

Its been ages since I made an post here, and visiting today I have noticed this forum has been coming along in leaps and bounds!

Today I thought I would revive the virtual airline pilot inside of me and take to the skies of Europe in POSKY's brilliant B737-700 (which I have flown on in real life from London Gatwick to Barcelona and back), taking a short early morning hop from Liverpool (In England) to Aldergrove, Belfast (Northern Ireland).

Here are 12 screenies I took along the way:

1) Pushback from the EGGP airline hub

2) Gear up over Liverpool- thats a nice contrast between the orange and grey there

3) Crossing our first enroute VOR overhead the Isle of Man airport (just under the left wing)

4) Sunrise as we climb to a cruise altitude of FL220. There was so much AI activity over the Irish Sea here!

5) Who says the sun don't shine out my arse? Razz

6) Over the Irish coast, and descending over Belfast city

7) Approach number 1...

Cool Approach number 2... dam it, the one time I choose to fly IFR, I forget to run 'AI Smooth' in the background and ended up giving way to a "bmibaby" A320 who ATC cleared to land just before me

9) Finals

10) Touchdown- yes I know it was a cr@p landing, all three sets of wheels touched down on the right side of the centreline, but my exucse for this was the annoying crosswind blowing from the Real World weather I had downloaded.

11) Exiting the runway. This airport is actually an RAF Base but shares international flights with civilian traffic.

12) All parked up, a very enjoyable flight all in all

Hope everyone is well, comment if you wish Very Happy

Nice part of the world Sussex! I have relatives in NZ, in Wellington i think. Why did you move out there?

Just downloaded the 737 and it's brilliant, thanks very much. I'm not into commercial jets much but there's something about the 737. I think it's the flat bottomed engine cowls!! Laughing And i love the easy jet colour scheme!!

Great Stuff! Punk

To make it totally true to life, you need to add a screenie of a group of 14 nut case passangers screaming at the 19 year old girl behind the check in desk because Easy Jet have closed the flight 48 seconds prior to their arrival. Laughing
