Here's some shots from my first flight in the pre-release CL-44, modelled by Garry Russell and Fraser McKay. It's a fantastic little model (with a take-off weight of 210,000lbs! Yeah, right!), with lots of little things! I must stress at this point it is WIP, certain things may not be right and it's currently not for general release.
Built for FS9, it's reported that it works OK in FSX, just don't quote me on that! I had to try it out after Leif Harding, now a firm friend, invited me to try it out
So, here we are on the ramp at EGNX - engines running as I haven't read the manual yet!
The superb 2-D panel
An EE Lightning
A Volga-Dneper An-124-100
Just waiting for this 737-400 to take off
She just lifted herself off the ground very gracefully!
Gear up! This retraction is very good, as the mains rotate so they face down, then swing back. The left side (from the cockpit) raises before the right
Abeam the airfield
Gear down - another interesting set, as the mains practically come all the way down before the front leg comes out!
Full reverse and brakes
Taxiing back in
Our parking spot is where the '124's park - well the one's I've seen there anyway!
Front door open with the engines shut down

One final look
Thanks for viewing!
