Hello again everyone. First of all, I want to give a bit of credit to Anshul28 for giving me the idea to get creative with some shots from the engine of this beautiful JetStar 787-8.
This is a simple flyover of the Colorado Rocky Mountains from KDEN (Denver) in Solo, and a hasty return after conditions became worse. These shots are awesome… check them out and let me know what you think!
^ The Boeing 787-8 lifts off shortly after attaining a proper rotation speed, and the flexible wings bend beautifully as she climbs.
^ A prompt turn to the west, gear up! We’re headed for the Rockies!
^ Bye Denver, we’ll see you soon!
^ Shortly after reaching a conservative cruising altitude of 32,000 ft., our JetStar pilots have the opportunity to bask in the sheer beauty of the Colorado highlands. (That fog sure does look nasty…!)
^ Almost as quick as she came, it’s time for the star of the sky to return to Denver… the sun slowly but surely rising above the horizon. A short 180 to the east, and a fast descent later…
^ …and she’s lined up for runway 35L. That’s a pretty extravagant crosswind, Miss Dreamliner!
^ Handles it like a champ, yes she does. Throttle to idle, and grease that landing…
…spoilers out, reversers green! And, right on centerline. Outstanding! This jet is quite the star…
This one was real fun to make, folks. I love playing around with the weather settings in solo… and I can’t WAIT until they add clouds! Oof… the realism.
