QFA25 Retirement Party Flight
« on: Mon, 25 Jan 2021 05:28 »
Hi Guys,

January 29th Friday 30th Saturday and 31st Sunday 2021
Departing 12:00pm Sydney Time Friday and hopefully arriving about 4:00pm Saturday Sydney time ready to Party Saturday night.
QFA25 my 747-400 sim is being retired to make way for my new Sim.
We are planing a farewell flight Sydney to Pinal Airpark Marana Arizona USA with a few stops on the way over YSSY to KMZJ
Most of the actual aircraft parts in my old sim came from a TWA 747-100 Aircraft N93107 that was being dismantled at Pinal Airpark Marana so it is only fitting to return them to its final resting place. 😏
This will be kind of a mini WorldFlight without all the bells and whistles
Happy for anyone to tag along and fly online with us.

Matt QFA25

Maybe you could get a good copy of the Fixes that QF used to draw the Roo. On the flight plan they must have just filed for a block of airspace for the ATC plan did not include all these fixes...

Cant wait to get down there and fly 193!

All the best for the retirement flight Matt.  QFA25 was the inspiration for my sim back in the early 2000s.  Glad to have visited it at least once.

I second that. I bought my Aerowinx pack from you (well my wife did for Christmas a few years back)... At that stage you showed my the outside of your sim (it was not powered up).. and the "new" cockpit you had sitting in the warehouse.
Would love to get back and see how it looks now!


Cheers,

Still remember in 2003 I wanted to sneak in when Matt was not looking and hook up one of his truck reverser alarms BEEP BEEP BEEP BEEP BEEP to the thrust reverser levers when ground speed zero.

QF25 was a landmark in my personal history and probably instrumental to put me where I am today.

EDIT No, it was all Hardy's fault, I'm sure.
