Flight was nice except for that slow mooney that cut in on final--had to sit there and float for a while so I wouldn't have to go around--I wound up slowing to almost 100 kts. before touching down trying to get that mooney out of the way--another 20 kts would have been just a tad smoother!

a good old DC-9-10Series, we in europe called them DC-9-Sport,
cause the less of weight, but the same engines as on the
Series 30 or 40 (Finnair, SAS).
Does DL still operates 9er ?

I'm impressed at the detail of the exhaust from the engines...how did you get that?
10-18-2002, 02:16 PM

Some has to make a exust addon like that. With the heat from the enjiens. That would be so cool. I also got a ? Can someone tell me a computer to buy under $1,500 Somthing that will be good for FS2002. Right now I got $100 to spend on a new computer. But im just started my job. But will someone give me a good computer.

Nice pics, cool plane! I beleive the "Sport" designation referred to by our 707 friend actually refers to the DC-9 series 20. SAS was an operator of this variant, which essentially was a series 10 with leading edge slats. This gave it the performance SAS required at the time. I don't believe too many -20's were built, and SAS just retired theirs within the past few years.
Keep the pics coming!

i saw that you wanted to buy a good flight sim computer for under 1500. in my opinion (and what i did) you can go to dell.com and basically build the computer you want. i did it and i love it. also you are backed up by a warranty on it. good luck.

That's the first time I've seen that exhaust/heat effect. Looks fairly descent in the screen shots. Is that an add-on effect like the smoke textures?
10-18-2002, 09:17 PM
Actually, it is the use of the blur tool in Adobe Photoshop. Makes a handy exhaust effect. Nothing real here.

Hmmmm, seems like there is some demand for the exhaust/heat effect. Pitty there is no suply.
Maybe someone will be able to make an exhaust/heat effect and make it an Add-on.
