Anyone know it either of these are available for FS9? If so, where?
Only a 2002, try it.
Many thanks. Many years ago, I flew as a passenger on both. The IL-62 was a much nicer plane than the TU-104.
Now, all I have to do is figure out why Firefox doesn't handle downloads from these sites. I hate using IE.
Hey guy. I have the 'bull'. Yeah, it is a 2002 model and it doesn't really make the grade. I have most of the other Russian planes,; TU-144, 134, 154 and so on. They are all a lot of fun.
Wheels on the ground!! HA! HA!
'NEVER hit anything with your airplane except the,, a runway. Even so! With your wheels!! NOT the nose wheel first either!!!!'.
I think a case can be made for "on the ground" still being in the realm of above (rather than below) the ground.
The TU-104 in the Aeroflot fleet in 1973 appeared to be a converted medium bomber. After all, would there be any other reason for a nose window or bomb bay doors on an airliner? I had photographed one before boarding it in Helsinki. Unfortunately, the photo hasn't survived. 😞
As I understand it, the 'glass noses were for celestial navigation. This was needed due to the vast distances and limited nav aids. 😀
And the bomb bay doors were for convenient emptying of the restrooms over those vast spaces ? 😉
BTW, the TU-104 I was on had almost no sound deadening and the pilot must have been a bored military type. He executed a turn over Moscow State University that enabled the passengers on the starboard side to turn their heads to the right and look straight down at the main buildings.
I wonder how many of the passengers required a change of underwear after that manuver.
The IL-62, on the other hand, was very pleasant plane to be in.
