  3. When Sergei Yakovlev, son of legendary Soviet aircraft designer Alexander Sergeyevich Yakovlev, was working on the aerobatic Yak-55 back in 1980, he probably never imagined anything like this. It would have surely been inconceivable to him that, nearly 40 years later, a group of guys, in the decadent West, no less, would take two of his airplanes and stick them together. But that’s exactly what happened. In this video, air show pilot Jeff Boerboon, EAA 363600, talks about what it took to build the remarkable Yak-110, and what it was like to fly it at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2018.SOURCE

  8. Let me know which airplanes or airlines I should feature in my next Askcargo episode. I decided to bring back askcargo cause it` s the best way to interact with you guys. I filmed a Boeing 787 of Norwegian for the first time at Amsterdam last week and the evening light was perfect. I was quite lucky cause the Boeing 787 departed with a delay of 60 minutes and I just arrived at the position when the Boeing started its pushback. Actually I showed up for a Boeing 777 of Saudia and I was very happy about the delayed Boeing 787 departure. New videos every tuesday and friday.SOURCE

  18. UK2000 Scenery has provided the community with an overview of their current workload for the upcoming year and beyond. Taking to Facebook, the team announced that they have plans for further FS2004 airports (despite their previous statement), building new technology for next year and also a range of airports which will continue to be ported to X-Plane 11. The first piece of information is that Bournemouth Xtreme is almost finished. The final beta checks are going through right now – release is expected in Mid-February. This will be the last Xtreme airport from UK2000 Scenery, as they are looking to build the new toolset for new products from now on. With that in mind, the team did confirm that as the ‘Xtreme’ technology is capable of rendering for FS2004, the team decided to add both Bournemouth and Belfast V2 to their work flow to make it compatible with the older simulator. This means that their entire Xtreme Airport selection will be available for all sims in the future. No more updates (other than fixing bugs and adding SODE jetways) will be made for airports in the Xtreme package. In regards to the aforementioned new technology, it was confirmed that 2019 will see the team build the new tool set to enable a brand new range of updates to come out from 2020 and beyond. The first two airports to see this new technology will be Luton Airport and Bristol Airport. They also confirmed that new airports will also be made including the Isle of Man. As for X-Plane 11 users: the team shared their Trello board to give an overview of upcoming projects. From the list, 13 airports are currently in development for X-Plane 11 conversion (or will be in the future). This includes the likes of Jersey, Heathrow and Belfast. That’s all the information shared. Once new airports are released or if there are updates, we’ll be sure to let you know.

  25. While this Airbus A380 of Emirates was fighting with some crosswinds on short final at Düsseldorf Airport an Airbus A340 of Eurowings was patienly waiting at the holding point for its departure. An Airbus A320 didn` t care, overtook the Airbus A340 and performed and immediate departure right before the Airbus A380. It kinda looks impressive to see the big A380 showing up in the background and the small Airbus crew didn` t care at all and line up on the runway. The Airbus had a special EXPO 2020 livery. Emirates currently promotes the EXPO in Dubai and at least 10 A380` s have been painted in a special orange, blue or green EXPO livery. Thanks for watching, new videos every tuesday and friday.SOURCE
