Rotate MD-80

Back in September they posted a nice cockpit initialization video I might have missed posting. This is probably a Day 1 purchase for me whenever it gets released… Love the MD-80…!

And an earlier video showing some of the early shots of the external model…

Looking fantastic… A nice break from the slew of Boeings and Airbii (LOL)…

Love the MD80. I have had my eye on this for sometime.

Yeah…if I can get an MD-80 and some really good Washington National (KDCA) scenery…I’ll be in heaven. Always enjoyed sitting at Gravelly Point and watching them takeoff and land…

Still one of my favorite approaches I’ve flown in real life…

Check this site out. Pretty good for freeware. Gets you a more “alive” airport.

Great - thanks! This looks good too: simMarket: TROPICALSIM - WASHINGTON NATIONAL KDCA X-PLANE 10

…but I’m shying away from some of the commercial stuff like Aerosoft’s because they don’t populate the airports with AI traffic or static aircraft. I bought Aerosoft’s PANC (Anchorage) and it looks like a zombie wasteland with not a single aircraft (airliner anyway)… I actually replaced part of it with the FFDG version - it is much better:

Proof that sometimes payware really isn’t better than the free stuff…

Thanks for the KDCA suggestion… :smile:

Not an MD-80 - but an MD-82 departing St. Maarten with a bit of panache…

Nice and low!

I keep telling my Girl that we are going to St. Maarten for a vacation.

It remains at the very top of my most favorite places I’ve ever visited. Maho Beach was just incredible…

guys this eyecandy is all great unless its moving like the latest Tornado for FSX :smile:

:laughing: I’ve heard the rumors about that Tornado (I don’t have it). 3 FPS is great though…it gives me time to run to the grill and turn the steaks without having to worry I’ll crash…
