MD11 under testing?


I dug up a screenshot on facebook (not mine) of Laura flying the MD11 (note two other devs are present in this screenshot). Perhaps this could mean that the DC10/MD11 is under testing for working instruments? It may seem far fetched, but somewhere on IFC it has been stated that some aircraft are ready for working instruments (meaning that a complete rework of the cockpit is unnecessary), and the MD11 could very well be one of them, since it’s one of the most recent non-working instrument aircraft. Here I will answer some potential questions so that they will be already answered:

That could be the A359 under testing?
In game the A359 shows up as nothing, it’s invisible.
What if they’re simply doing a flight with a regular DC10 and MD11?
If they were flying a regular DC10 or MD11 then it would show up as one on LiveFlight rather than a UFO.


Another screenshot taken at the same time, kind of odd there are two separate entities on expert server.

So what do y’all think it is? I know not everyone appreciates speculation but I’d like to know what everyone thinks.

Maybe they’re just doing a group flight?

You got it!


LiveFlight shows Laura who is testing the A350.

But if they were doing a regular flight, then certainly LiveFlight wouldn’t display it as a UFO?

If they were displayed as a UFO then they were secretly testing the addition of flying Unicorns. I’m amazed you haven’t heard about that yet…

Staff don’t only fly beta aircraft you know… Sometimes they also enjoy a flight in an existing aircraft 🙂

I get it but the point is if it was a regular flight it wouldn’t display as a UFO on LiveFlight wouldn’t it?
