    HI, I am a Patron and look forward to On Approach each week. Greatly value your insights and opinions. I am sure that I am like many US based followers I look forward to attending a Flight Simulator show. This year it looks like there will be two and I can only afford to go to one. FlightSimExpo 2018 - June 9 and June 10, 2018 in Las Vegas, Nevada and FlightSimCon 2018 June 23 and June 24, 2018 in Dallas, Texas. An initial look at each web site seems to indicate that the Las Vegas conference will be the one to attend. I am sure that in On Approach you guys will give your opinions of each show and be a valuable input to the planning efforts of many, including me.

    Hi guys, Just a short message to inform that there is a new version for this freeware (3.3.1), it has just a minor change to support the FAIB 747-8 and 747-8F models. Best Regards, Simbol

    It's Christmas already Yesterday Aerobask made its Lancair Legacy FG (former payware) free, so let's stay in the free zone ! If you want crispier mountains, higher fidelity terrain elevations, if you are using orthophotos, or just if you want a little bit of real life fidelity to your sim, you will need a good base mesh. This is the v4 of the ever free (but you can donate !) HD Mesh from AlpilotX (which brought us extraordinary sceneries like NZ !). TL;DR : Do not think, just download it for your X-Plane 11 !

    Last saturday I filmed an Airbus A330 of Lufthansa departing at Düsseldorf. I have never seen an airplane coming so close to a tailstrike before. A tailstrike is the situation when an airplane almost hits the ground with its tail section. At first I thought it was probably an optical illusion but then I watched other airplanes takeoff from the same spot and everything looked normal. I also added a departure of an Airbus A350 for a comparison. Thanks for watching, see you next Saturday.SOURCE

    Bombardier recently announced a partnership with Airbus, where Airbus takes a 50.01% majority stake in the C Series airliner program. At the recent Dubai Airshow, AIN caught up with Bombardier commercial aircraft president Fred Cromer to learn more about the program’s proposed ownership structure and the companies’ future single aisle product strategies.

    After my video of throwing an RC plane out of my Kitfox and flying it next to the Kitfox, someone decided to report me to the FAA. Not cool. Anyway, the phone call I had with the FAA ended up being a good phone call, the inspector had to reach out since someone had complained but there were no regulations that were broken so he just called to have an &quot;educational moment&quot;. The video that caused this mess can be found here: https://youtu.be/h14ahTwOdmoSOURCE:

    Fascinating to see how the undercarriage copes with being thumped into the ground. Closeups of the action on a day of strong winds at about 45 degrees to the runway direction. Starring Gulfstream IV, Dash-8, A380 and 737.SOURCE

    A Boeing 747 of Air Bridge Cargo created a beautiful snowstorm during its departure yesterday at Düsseldorf Airport. Snow is not very common in my area and that` s why I was very happy to see such a beautiful cargo charter during these weather conditions. Like the weather Boeing 747` s are very uncommon at Düsseldorf aswell. It` s always impressive to watch a Boeing 747 in action but if there are incredible additional effects like this snowstorm it`s even moren inredible. I hope ABC will show up with one of their Jumbo Jets at Düsseldorf again. Thanks for watching.SOURCE

    Available now: Antonov An-2 08/12/2017 09:00 AM The Antonov An-2, also known as Annushka, Annie or Colt, is available now for Prepar3D V4.1. It’s a massive, single engine bi-plane - a robust aircraft that can be used for a wide variety of tasks. This version for P3D depicts that complexity in great detail. You will have to click a lot of switches and wiggle a lot of controls to get the engine to run smoothly. With an impeccable flight model you will be soon cruising the skies at a leisurely pace while dropping oil and making an incredible racket. It is a lovely aircraft!

I would really like to see the Citation X in v4 as soon as possible, as my current Generation 2 is stranded in the 32 bit world.
