    Default Getting reacquainted with my airbus a-340

    Thanks to Beroun (FS2004 forum thread), I pulled my Airbus A340 out of the hangar, to get reacquainted with this aircraft after a long time not flying it! Thanks Peter!

    Thanks Jan! Yes, the house livery is different and I just had to have it. The same download came with a Luthansa livery, so I have house and a designated livery, depending on what my mood is. I also have the house livery in the A350-1000 "X" (XTRA WIDE BODY) and the A350-800 "X" (XTRA WIDE BODY) which also are a little different, but nice to have in the hangar!

    Here's one that I thought was the "ugliest" queen out there! But, she's had some time to grow on me! She's a little wide in the hips, doesn't move as fast as the other girls around her! But she's always there when I need her, ready at a moment's notice! What else can I say?

    Those big Airbus birds look like nice smooth flyers. The last I have flown is the A-330 and I don't fly tube liners very often.

    Thanks David and Larry!

    Larry - I do enjoy flying them as it is a challenge for me, usually making long cross country flights, such as Baltimore to Boston to Niagra Falls, NY to Detroit Metro to Pittsburgh and back to Baltimore. They are easier making the long hauls. I will also do these trips with any one of the fighter jets that I have, and that is a "hoot" to do! I don't fly the jets as often as I should, but that leaves me time for my older warbirds and such and I do enjoy them!

    Thanks for commenting guys!

    Some of the older jets are also worth looking at like the DC-10, VC-10 and Tristar or even the 707.

    Thanks Colin! Yes, I do also have the DC-10, the Tri-Star L1011 and the MD-11. All a pleasure to have and fly!
