    100% PBR Airport Coming Soon! Earlier this week, JV teased the above images which have come from an upcoming airport project for X-Plane 11 and Prepar3D v4. We are working in tandem with the Turbulent team in order to bring you this new tech, and new workflows mean that we can release the P3D and XP versions very close together if not at the same time! This airport is our first to be built using 100% compliance to the correct PBR standards for all materials. If you look at the shots, you can see that the detail isn't just on the ground services equipment but also on the apron on which they sit. The incredible level of detail on the baggage lifter does not mean it is an FPS hog. The original model was made up of over 24 million polygons and that model was used to create the PBR map for a lower poly target. This means you get an amazingly detailed airport without the high-poly penalty.  Likewise, with the entire airport being PBR, the apron reflects light based on each material used such as asphalt, paint, metal grates and puddles etc. The lighting changes depending on the time of day, level of cloud cover, rain etc. Just don't ask us which airport it is, because we're not confirming anything yet!

    This Boeing 757 of Icelandair received a water canon salute at Düsseldorf Airport yesterday. It was the first flight of Icelandair at Düsseldorf and they intend to connect Düsseldorf with Keflavik twice a week. Actually the route was planned with a Boeing 737 Max, but since the Max is grounded Iceland had to adjust its flightplans. They will subcharter three Boeing 767s for the summer season. It` s almost a tradition to welcome a new company with a water canon salute. Icelandair was welcomed by the fire brigade and its always a fantastic motive for us videographers. Special thanks to Icelandair for sending the beautiful Hekla Aurora logo jet. What a fantastic looking livery! Thanks for watching, new videos every tuesday and friday.SOURCE

    This video asks a question. It does not attempt to answer it. The question specifically concerns leakage from the surge tanks, not the main tanks. The only aircraft type shown is the Boeing 737-800 (NOT the MAX variety), as I have no useful shots of any other type trailing fuel. Clearly, the occasional spurt of fuel through the surge tank duct ('NACA vent scoop') is expected, and it is equipped with a flame arrestor to handle unwanted consequences. However, as seen here, fuel can, very rarely, leak out through what appears to be the edge of the access panel holding the duct - presumably due to a failing seal. For the record, I sent a copy of the clip from about 61 to 93 seconds to the airline concerned.SOURCE
