Henderson, Solomon Islands - Port Moresby, New Guinea

Postby Moose4 » 01 Jun 2008 21:39

Here's my first "real" flight with Digital Aviation's awesome new Fokker 100. This is Air Niugini flight 85, AGGH-AYPY, a long overwater flight. It had a few interesting moments, between me learning this very complex airplane and the weather...

The only edits done on these shots are cropping off the menu bar and resizing them down to 1024 wide. Native resolution is 1680x1050 on a 22" monitor. The video card is a Geforce 8800GTS 512MB, running 16xS anti-aliasing and 8x anisotropic filtering.

Takeoff, and immediately the rocking and rolling starts

Man, that is a LOT of red on that radar...

...ok, that explains it (anvil cloud)

Keeping a nervous eye on my fuel...I'm going to arrive at Port Moresby with only 800 kg

Finally, land, the southern tip of Papua New Guinea

On the rollout, lift dumpers and thrust reversers deployed--this thing stops FAST

At the gate, time to unload!
