  4. Escorted by twin F-15s, the Spirit made a "surprise" appearance at the Fairford airshow. Looks to me like a cross between a ufo and a first attempt at building a plane in a backyard shed!SOURCE
  5. The Air-Clips.com Team was invited to join Captain Rikard, Senior First Officer Sebastian and First Officer Benjamin on a Boeing 777-200F cargo run from Frankfurt to Tokyo Narita, onwards to Seoul and back to Frankfurt. For each of the three flights Air-Clips.com has created one of the famous ULTIMATE COCKPIT MOVIES which will be released here completely for free in HD quality. This short clip is an exclusive scene from our LH B777 ULTIMATE COCKPIT MOVIE Tokyo-Seoul, available FOR FREE as of August 24th 2018 under this link: https://youtu.be/z9ruG_9NFjI AirClips.com supports the pilot’s profession and all those interested in dedicating their lives to the beauty of flying. In a special series we are reporting about pilot’s training, life and career opportunities in the Lufthansa Group, one of the world’s leading aviation groups. Let us encourage you to consider becoming a future pilot for one of the Lufthansa Group airlines, starting with a thorough training by European Flight Academy (EFA). Did you know that... - Lufthansa Group needs over 500 new pilot students every year for their airlines? - Lufthansa Group gives you access to affordable financing solutions? - pilot’s limitations regarding debility of eye-sight allow a lot more flexibility than you maybe think? - not speaking German does not stop you from joining the Group? - female cadets are particularly encouraged to join? Enjoy our series of clips and films about being trained by and working as a pilot for the Lufthansa Group. Check out their link for more details on how to join: https://www.european-flight-academy.com/en/ Lufthansa Cargo AG is a German cargo airline and a wholly owned subsidiary of Lufthansa. It operates worldwide air freight and logistics services and is headquartered at Frankfurt Airport, the main hub of Lufthansa. Besides operating dedicated cargo planes, the company also has access to cargo capacities of 350 passenger aircraft of the Lufthansa Group. Lufthansa operated a cargo subsidiary, called German Cargo, between 1977 and 1993 (earlier still, cargo operations were executed in-house, under the Lufthansa Cargo name), when -in an effort to restructure the company- the cargo division was re-integrated into its parent, and split up into two parts (one for scheduled operations using Lufthansa-owned aircraft, and one for freight and logistics services using chartered or leased aircraft). Lufthansa Cargo was created as a limited stock company on 30 November 2004, along with Lufthansa Cargo Charter. Lufthansa Cargo uses LH (the same IATA code as Lufthansa), as well as GEC (the former ICAO code of German Cargo) as airline codes. Lufthansa is unique compared to its major European competitors like British Airways and Air France in that the cargo business is organized in an entirely different airline entity. For some years, Lufthansa Cargo (including the freight transported in the cargo holds of mainline Lufthansa passenger aircraft) was the leading cargo airline in terms of international freight tonne-kilometres carried, but has since been surpassed by Cathay Pacific and Korean Air Cargo. The 777 Freighter (777F) is an all-cargo version of the twinjet, and shares features with the -200LR; these include its airframe, engines, and fuel capacity.[146] With a maximum payload of 224,900 lb (102,000 kg) (similar to the 243,000 lb (110,000 kg) of the 747-200F), it has a range of 4,970 nmi (9,200 km). Greater range is possible if less cargo weight is carried. As the aircraft promises improved operating economics compared to older freighters, airlines have viewed the 777F as a replacement for freighters such as the 747-200F, MD-10, and MD-11F. The first 777F was delivered to Air France on February 19, 2009. As of September 2017, 131 freighters had been delivered to 16 different customers, with 30 unfilled orders. Operators had 128 of the 777F in service as of July 2017. In the 2000s, Boeing began studying the conversion of 777-200ER and -200 passenger airliners into freighters, under the name 777 BCF (Boeing Converted Freighter). The company has been in discussion with several airline customers, including FedEx Express, UPS Airlines, and GE Capital Aviation Services, to provide launch orders for a 777 BCF program.SOURCE

  11. The airline industry just is not what it was years ago, here is an article on the latest scheme to expand and make money in other ways: The excuse, of course, is the desperate desire to make money. The result, however, is a certain level of distaste among passengers and even their own employees. The latest little niggle comes courtesy of United Airlines, the Friendly-Unless-You're-In-Our-Way Skies.

  17. Haha yep, i mean with a new aircraft release, a great bit of the hype comes consumers personalizing with repaints, all the liveries they have dreamed about etc... in this case they knew they were putting out a new model which would render repaints useless so they held back. Naturally I wanted to do a TSL one. . . but not 2x ! lost interest.
  18. I hope so yes, not sure why they've been so slow with that tbh, it's not exactly difficult?? 🤔
  19. Ahhhh finally the new model, with this will finally come a repaint kit they said...
  20. Looks gorgeous thank you for sharing @Gibbon !! Shame its a newer model, gimme that single swivel yoke action !!!

  22. TFDi Design 717 1.1 Release Candidate 1 Released Just ahead of July 17th, or 717 day as they are calling it, TFDI has pushed the first release candidate of version 1.1 of the 717, brining an overhauled external model and a minor bug fix in preparation for 717 day on Tuesday. The main change of this update is obviously the new external model, and boy oh boy did it have some major rework done. Included in this rework is significant amount f detain such as rivets, seams, and dirt to exterior textures, new landing gear complete with a new gear bay and tire textures, wingflex, cabin lights on the exterior mode, and fan blade blur. The full changelog of the update can be found below. Do note that all repaints prior to the new model will be incompatible and only a white livery has been provided for this beta release. It was stated that more liveries, along with the paintkit, will be available on or before 7/17. That was all for now, but 717 day is but 2 days away so we’ll surely be hearing lots more about the 717 leading up to then. Stay tuned for the full release of v1.1, including the aircraft’s exit of open beta. A few previews of the new model can be found below, credit to RoooDog on our Discord for providing the images!

  23. AFM M20 Collection Updated AFM (Advanced Flight Modeling) has released version 3.0.0 of their M20 Collection. With this update, the plane has officially left its early access state. The devs make clear that they will still bring updates to the aircraft, but feel confident enough to not consider it as early access anymore. The 3.0.0 update is mainly focussed on immersion, according to the developers, and comes with several changes to do so. This update requires a complete reinstall of the product. A quick guide to do so can be found in their announcement post. The M20 Collection requires X-Plane 11.20 or later, and can be bought from the AFM Store.

  24. A2A V-Tail Bonanza Cockpit Previewed Last previewed a little less than a month ago, and announced back in April, the A2A V-Tail Bonanza promises to bring a new and unique aircraft to our sims that we’ve never experienced before. While we’ve seen previews of the external model plenty before in the past, something we haven’t seen yet is where us virtual pilots spend the overwhelming majority of their time; the virtual cockpit! Unsurprisingly, coming from A2A, these previews look absolutely stunning and show that the aircraft is certainly getting closer to being in our hands sometime in the near future. When we have anymore information or previews, we, of course, won’t hesitate to share! SOURCE INFO https://fselite.net/previews/a2a-v-tail-bonanza-cockpit-previewed/

  26. FSFX Packages Airbus Professional Statement SOURCE INFO Ever since the release of the Aerosoft Airbus Professional, and even way before that, many have been wondering if FSFX Packages’ A320 Immersion package would be compatible with the new product, and now we know. In the blog post on the FSFX website, it was revealed that the package is not compatible with the new version and it’s not as straightforward of a port as many think due to the changed systems behind the scenes. The team further elaborated that it is very unlikely that we’ll see an update for the product until early 2019, and it will be a paid update (with discounts) when it does release. As a close, and to end on a high note, FSFX teased that they have “some cool thing coming in October!”, whatever that may be! That’s all for now sadly, until next time! https://fsfxpackages.com/en/blog/2018/07/14/statement-about-aerosofts-new-a318-a319-professional/https://fsfxpackages.com/en/blog/2018/07/14/statement-about-aerosofts-new-a318-a319-professional/ https://fselite.net/news/fsfx-packages-airbus-professional-statement/
