G’day all, today I went onto my iPhone 4S running iOS and downloaded Infinite Flight and to my surprise it was pre global so it got me thinking since the XCub is out why not make a special post of the Super Decathlon and XCub and include some pictures of airports pre global to global. To keep it as original as possible I spawned in at SAN Francisco.
The pictures were taken today about 1 to 3 hours ago from 2019-07-08T05:55:00Z, I was in solo mode on both devices. The time was Noon and sunset.
Cockpits of both aircraft, as you can tell the decathlon is very detailed to the point that your eyes cannot even see it, innovation am I right.
The outside of both aircraft is amazing, but the decathlon’s innovations seem to disappear on the outside as it doesn’t seem to have any opening doors.
The decathlon was easier to takeoff with because it’s a newer plane and you don’t have to use as much rudder as the older XCub.
Like I mentioned first I also got shots of pre global and global to compare against. Once again all images are mine.
Los Angeles has improved a lot since pre global looking a lot more realistic.
Same with the Los Angeles area itself also looks a lot more realistic, but it would look more realistic with the old animations of the water.
The view from 100,000 feet looks like your actually in space not just as high as Mount Everest.
At SAN Francisco at sunset actually looks more realistic than it does today, with that awesome water reflection on the setting sun on another wonderful day.
Well that’s it, I hope you enjoyed this trip down memory lane as much as I did. Feel free to give your thoughts below on what you think.
Should I do more of these in the future?
- Definitely Not
Please note that in pre global when I said 100,000 feet I only got to 50,000 feet in the F/A 18. Also the images are edited together and are not individual images.
