    Default Airbus A400M, Great Aircraft!

    Had this aircraft at one time, didn't use it, something must not have impressed me, deleted it. Just recently David Straka got me interested in it, and I like it. For a large aircraft, it's quite stable and very predictable! I'll keep it!

    Oh, and Jan, this bird should be able to transport a "lot of beer!"

    Going back years I remember seeing someone was making the FS model of the A400, I was desperate to get it when released.
    I kept looking and looking but it seemed to be forever, then one day I saw a payware version, I grabbed it right away, after that a few more models came out and I got those too.
    Now I hardly ever touch it, not that I don't like it or anything I keep moving around different aircraft, I get a fancy for one then after a while I move on again, I can't help it.

    That's what happened to me Colin. I deleted my C17. the A400M and the Lockheed C-5 Galaxy, all good aircraft, just never used them. Now I have the
    A400M back and just this afternoon recovered my C-5 Galaxy from my backup.

    I'll think twice about deleting them now!

    Okay, here he is in all his glory, going to see how he does on an ILS approach to landing!

    Sometimes you just get hooked on the big birds. It can give you a real sense of achievement when you complete a good flight without a mishap.

    Well said Larry, I'm a terrible pilot, I should practice more but I spend most of my FS time tweaking and adding ai aircraft, doing ai flight plans and the odd repaint etc.

    When I was working I went in lots of cockpits for a look, nothing like the panels we get in FS, there was one button missing in all of them, it was the 'Pause' button lol.
