Got bored aand decided to see if I could land this thing with no instruments. It was a bit of a challenge at first, but once I got used to the feel of what the horizon should look like to give me my desired attitude, what the ground looks like at the desired speed, and what the engines sound like at a given throttle setting...it wasn't too bad...

Touchdown...nose gear down....spoilers out...reverse...

Idle reverse...forward thrust. We're...here. Where is here, anyway!?!?!? I just kinda flew around NYC and chose whichever airport came along first...with a long enough runway...hope the shots didn't suck...:-)

1.) We design for reality, not for idealism.
Thus, you will not see virtual cabins on our aircraft. You can not see inside the real thing anyway, unless you are looking into the sun. You will find virtual cockpits but they will not be visible from outside for the same reason.
2.) We design for people with real computers. Thusly, we will not waste polygons on superfluous parts. We will use a texture when there is no noticeable difference between it and a group of performance wasting parts. We will model our aircraft efficiently. If you do not like it, too bad.
3.) We will give you the latest features, but we WILL NOT sacrifice visual accuracy to implement them. Accuracy comes before eye candy.[/font size]
