Hi I am not new to Flight Simulation.

I love the McDonnell Douglas DC 10-30 from HJG. I've been flying it regularly.

I have a YouTube Channel

I started in 2008 with some friends was initially taught by a friend in Denmark via Teamspeak 1.

I currently run FS2004 on Windows XP SP3

My other hobby is shortwave radio listening. I like watching Youtube videos on radio repairs of different types.

I remember back on 2008 I signed up on a virtual airline that had no restrictions on the plane you can fly and not requirements to fly online nor be on VATSIM. At the time I wasn't really smart on VA's and such. I really developed a bad taste for them.

I started out on Ultimate Global Tours by SCYYZ, a FSHost server still in existence. No one but a few fly there anymore. I mean 1 or 2. Used be anywhere from 10-30 people daily. I just didn't like having no one to speak with in the FS chat window. So I trekked out for this VA. It looked vaguely familiar. So I am giving it a chance.

:D

I like the schedules search by aircraft type. found my present favorite bird. I'm a prop trainee flying the DC10-30 :lol:

I vaguely remember it from the past. Wished I stuck around. Just by reading forum posts I detected fun loving hearty people.

On my 4th flight LAX-PHNL with a hurricane few hundred miles southwest. I checked the Pacific area wind maps saw the bars flowing in a pattern directly toward the hurricane. A good amount of windsheer at FL320. Not enough for 500 knot groundspeed. Another bad area of weather a little ways from PHNL.

This flight is dispatched.
