    After a ton of searching, I found it! The very first screen shot i ever posted here, or anywhere else. Keep in mind that I was far from a newcomer to either the simulator or this site. I began flying simulators as soon as they appeared. My platform was a Radio Shack Color Computer that I had souped up tp handle the Bruce Artwick sofware. I joined FlightSim far later in 2005. Anyway, this shot was originally posted in a brief narrative on June 30, 2013. It shows a recently completed replacement panel for a PT-26, also one of my first attempts at making panels. Later, I replaces almost 100% of the panells of the planes I had in the Cyber Hangar.''

    I was shy, very concerned about how my FS-9 would stand up against all that beautiful FSX ORBX scenery, so I held back for eons with my screen shots, and when I finally did post, it was not an airplane shot that went first, it was a new panel I had created. I've included one plane and scenery shot so you can judge. In retrospect, I think my FS-9 stands up pretty well. You can tell from the amateurish clip that I really didn't know what I was doing., but I had watched others post for so long, I couldn't wait any longer.

    The platform is FS-9, the scenery is Holgar Sandman (freeware), the aircraft is also freeware, Anyway, after that, I was hooked. I jumped in. That was the best thing I ever did. Soon I was posting regularly two or three times a week and really enjoying it. I owe a great deal to this site and the members who have brought so much joy to an old man, perhaps a decent screen shot or two occasionally is one way of saying... THANKS!

    Ahh, chunky textures! Bell bottoms, leisure suits, earth shoes, cargo pants...

    Come on, TOP GUN, be nice. Revel in your illustrious new stature and leave the mumbling of the common serf be to fester on the page until rebuked by a certain Natural Born Dutch Royal who fancies himself the worlds leader in aquatic landings.

    boxcar "Interesting point you make about FSX being so expensive"
    Well, I was meaning indeed -- for the guy hesitating about FSX I think -- that FSX -- at least in France -- has turned much expansive like the boxed version Gold when available, which becomes seldom
    In terms of paywares, I think they are of good quality and worth the money as soon as one knows what kind of plane, in what kind of region, etc. one likes to fly. Because a newbie in flightsim, I think, should first make its first wings mostly with freeware until he finds what he likes in flightsim

    "Am really not after breaking any record" That's the season of records! Have you seen that guy lately who broke the 5,000 post barrier?!

    about FS2002: it was a good FS, and with a lot of free improvements available. now that I eventually passed FSX about 4 years ago -- only -- I find it a achievement and something that will be hard to forget for any new simulator. Personally I say that Microsoft should re-constitute a team of developers and bring a FSXI, with photogen, Q routes, GPS approach etc.

    All the loony things I tried with the many flight simulators I've had through the years, never have I flown through any bridge lengthwise. I'm amazed at the crash. Since I'm a FS2004 hold out, I'm going to give it a try as soon as I'm flying again. My hitting the wall assumes a steady hand, and that's not been the case recently. We'll give it a go any way.
