Possibly ... his first attempt underflying the bridge :-)

Do you remember assembler ? Modern art ! Pure function and then form ....

If we fly further back on this line, we'll land at Bauhaus ... :-)

frumpy

Now that's Bauhaus:


Might be something for Jeroen too, I read that he wanted to
be a flight engineer... so here you go, lots of switches ;)

Its the Tu-154 from ProTu, its freeware too :-)

It would be just my luck that both the pilots ate the fish on this aircraft...

What's a "PODKLYUCHENIYE SHIN NPK" and a "TOPLIVNAYA SYSTYEMA?  :mrgreen:

I guess its the electrical system and fuel pressure. I dont really
have a clue :-D Still there is a good support forum and a live
community to help with technical issues. Takes time to work
into it.
It was strange to me that the approach speed of the Tu is in km/h.
I think 230 km/h should be okay, still I had no feeling where to
expect the stalling speed. And once the bells ring and several
lights pop up on approach... quite irritating *g*
Also the main gear is very far apart, I noticed it when touching
down with a little bank..  :mrgreen:

Hey, it's Russian. Just throttle up. It WILL fly.

СПАСИВО!

@Jeroen
Its not that easy. In the above picture the a/c has
to get tapped to start engines, a button has to
be depressed for 8 seconds. Took me quite a while
to get them turbines running :-)

Hehe, I was just cleaning up my hard disk and stumbled upon this video.

Seven years after the above screenshot I got the chance to fly over that unknown city by myself. It was filmed by a guy known as Matt Sheil.


Cheers,

Matt Sheil

Very cool
When PSX is Finished we need to do this again, we will all just be older  :)

Hardy Heinlin

But not too old to rock 'n' roll ...

I think we'll do it again.

John Davis PC

Very cool hardy ... I did the same flight with Roddez in a Tomahawk .... landed on same runway at bankstown :)

translate.google.com translates

ПОДКЛЮЧЕНИЕ ШИН НПК, ТОПЛИВНАЯ СИСТЕМА

as

CONNECT TYRES CDD FUEL SYSTEM

I can't figure it out in Google English either!  Would someone provide a simple English translation?  Driving me crazy that I can't figure the puzzle out!
Best wishes,

I checked the handbook. "ТОПЛИВНАЯ СИСТЕМА" is the fuel system,
of course.

"ПОДКЛЮЧЕНИЕ ШИН НПК" I could not find "НПК" there, but what
the switch to the right does is connecting the alternator to
the electric bus before engine start.
For detailed explainations of the Tupolevs guts, there is a
small forum similar to this one with knowledgeable people:

Simulator nostalgy here,
on a computer, I flew MSFS version 1 and F-16A Falcon, on Macintosh around 1986.
In real life I flew Gloster Meteor and NA T-6 Texan non-visual simulators in 1963. My first visual was full air combat capable F-4E in 1975 at Vought in Dallas, cockpit placed inside a sphere.
Regards, Zinger

My first sim was "Aces of the Pacific" in 1993. Shortly after I got "Tornado",
which was quite complex at that time... 200 keyboard codes,
several autopilot modes (terrain following!) and quite challenging.
Once a year I still dig out an old computer to put that JP233
in a straight line within heavy SAM defence and no time compression.
I could find targets via the radar or downward camera using
the mouse and put laser guided bombs on them. Oh, I spent days of
my life with that sim. (I think the 18 year old floppy-discs are
still working. *g*)

Falcon... Happy memories indeed! Running RG58 coax over the stairs to dog it out with my brother!

Right now I'm trying to learn the Embraer 195. It's nice to
being able to squeeze everything on the screen:
