Recent Screenshots

Post by Lawndart » Thu Aug 10, 2006 6:48 am

As some of you know, August is a heavy month for us for flying and here are some Photo Op screenshots taken from sorties this past week. The demo team has been hard at work at some finalizing shots for multimedia production as well as gearing up on procedures and timing for a back-2-back action packed show. Last night we flew a more relaxed cross country sortie and some of the screenshots depict that flight while some of the others ones are production shots (most of the maneuver screenshots). Hope you all enjoy them!

Ever wonder what the exact same BUP would look like without the mod installed...? Check it out!

LD, thanks for posting those. It was a lot of fun and a relaxing sortie that we definitely had earned. Great job #7 in the Slot!

Thanks for the flight time boss. I really enjoyed getting my "feet wet" in the over the water shots. Great flight. It was nice to be back in the delta again. Great shots LD.

Nice Job guys! Too bad you cant get rid of those rails on the hardpoints. I know thats something you guys have worked and worked on and would probably give someone big bucks if they ever figured it out. Anyways, great job!

Happy Flying!

True! It's just one of many annoyances we as well as the other virtual demo teams have to live with. Pylons, texture limitations, F-15 cockpits, no working tailhooks, "howevering" wheels, unless you use the Russian pits with the American fighters etc. One day we'll have it all, whether it's in the successor of Lock-On or FighterOPS?! :)

In the mean time, we're building proficiency and doing the best with what we have!

Most likely not... MSFS excels in other areas. I seriously doubt this is one of them! 8)

Two more shots...
