United Airlines Boeing Stratocruiser

This aircraft featured passing the Eiffel Tower in September's Pilot Choice pics. A YouTube video has come to light of a 1950 promotional video of United Airlines B377 California to Hawaii flight.  It shows conditions and services of yester-year. Smoking, drinking, buffet lunch and free to move around, all quite different now. This video is well worth a look.


Fleet Addition

RED Airlines has taken delivery of an Airbus A319. This short to medium range narrow body twin jet airliner is in a class similar to Boeing 737-200. It carries 158 passengers and has a maximum range of 3700 Nm.

Award Pilot's Pic.
29 September 2018


This picture shows RED-58 Embraer  E190  in Virgin livery enroute to Cairns (YBCS) from Cooktown  (YCKN).  

When an aircraft passes through cloud using native FSX weather, the cloud forms around the aircraft. It never forms a layer over the aircraft.

The above picture was taken with Active Sky Next installed. The cloud layer over the aircraft is very clear and much more realistic.  At times, cloud will hide or obscure parts of the aircraft only. Lightening and storms also display realistically making these long (or short!) haul flights more interesting. The hard thing is being quick enough to snap the photo!
