X-Plane 11 : Zibo Boeing 737 : Heathrow EGLL Paris LFPG : Departure

We're starting a new flight, this time from London Heathrow to Paris Charles de Gaulle. In the first of two videos we start the Zibo 737, depart from Heathrow, and climb to cruise altitude.

X-Plane 11 : Zibo Boeing 737 : Heathrow EGLL Amsterdam EHAM

This is the flight that got away. The flight "got away" in the sense that I couldn't complete what was looking to be an interesting flight. The weather was enough of a handful to make it interesting with a little rain at startup, that gave way to clear skies once we were above the clouds, and we were due to look at how to handle a hold, and another look at autoland, but sadly an Ortho scenery issue cut the flight somewhat short. I include it here as I think that while it's not complete it's still worthy of the price of admission.

Falcon 4 BMS : F-16 Fighting Falcon : Kunsan Landing

The most difficult part of any flight is the landing. And in this video we look at landing the F-16 at Kunsan.

X-Plane 11 : Zibo Boeing 737 : Amsterdam Schipol EHAM Autoland

The Boeing 737 is a complex aircraft, though not a difficult aircraft to fly. The complexity helps the pilot by reducing workload. And, when approaching a runway equipped with a Cat III ILS system the airfract can land itself. In this video we look at the Autoland process from setup to landing, in the context of a larger flight.

Falcon 4 BMS : F-16 Fighting Falcon : Kunsan Startup

As I get back into Falcon 4 BMS I look at starting the aircraft, which is a good method to re-familiarise myself with its systems.
