Landing at my favorite place (YVR) with my favorite airline and plane! A Westjet 737!
I haven't been around much lately, I go through phases of "FS", but the main reason for my absence recently is that fact that I was in an accident, and my car was destroyed. Haven't done much of anything since that happened (June 30th, 2008). So if you'll allow it, a little obituary to my beloved car...
It was a great car!
I was driving in the rain, the back end slid on me and I jumped a curb and hit a tree. I was on the brake, which shoved up on impact and ruined my foot, but I'm ok mostly...
...one more, this shot always amazes me. This is from the scene, thats the tree i hit on the left, no one moved the car, I bounced off of the tree about 2 feet or so. The airbags deployed, and I was wearing my seatbelt, but trust me, this hurt :P I estimate that I hit the tree between 30mph (50kph) - 40 mph (65kph).
I know this is a flight sim forum, but real life sometimes makes a "big impact" on us from time to time! So remember, be careful, and please, for gods sake, fly AND drive carefully! I know I'm not the only one to suffer misfortune, but I thought I'd post and let you all know about it as sort of a sincere warning.
--Keep the rubber on the "tarmac", plane or car!
PS, few more shots to those inclined to share in my pain, http://misqueeto.com/media/images/mustang/
