    Default Headquarters Here We Come: American Airlines to DFW

    I've been flying mostly GA recently, so it's been a few weeks since I got in a flight for my American VA, but it was time to get back into the cockpit of the FBW mod a320 and take some virtual passengers from Tampa over to the headquarters of American Airlines, Dallas/Forth Worth. Aside from a few clouds on our climbout, the weather on this flight was perfect. Here we go!

    The catering truck is doing its thing, the bags are ready to go on and the passengers are lining up in the terminal ready for boarding. Looks like we'll be leaving on time.

    I've never been to there in real life so I can't speak for the accuracy, but DFW looks great for a default airport

    That's all for this flight! Thanks for viewing!

    Excellent series and great narrative and shot composition Chris. I've been thru DFW on many RW trips on American and your shots are spot on.
