Player Played a Prank on Everyone

Was on Friday Night Flight today on Advanced. This guy changed his display name to ‘Antonov An-225 Mriya’

I fell for it…

He uses the A380 as an Antonov An-225.

I’ve seen this before. It’s most likely not a prank though.

I’ve tried doing that with the 787 before because of all this hype right now. Just flew like one of the mods would have and confused a lot of people. 👍

I always thought that was just his favorite plane so he made it his display name…

I don’t think this is a prank. There is someone called that. @Antonov.An-225.Fan this is you right.

It’s @Antonov.An-225.Fan that’s his username and Insta name, I wouldn’t think he’d try to trick people…

I’ve seen a player use the A330-200 like that and I fell for it.

Well, that’s me.

I apologise if I confused you by my display name,
but I just love an An-225.
I totally didn’t mean to play a prank on everyone.

When I fly as an “An-225” I try to be make my flight REAL
as real An-225 does in a real life even I fly on other planes like an A380 or a B748.
For example, I researched about an An-225’s flights schedule and then,
I use a call sign that an An-225 has used before.

In addition to this, I care everyrhing.
I fly around GS 400kt because an An-225 does,
I set flaps 1 until I lining up on a runway because an An-225 does,
or my takeoff/landing speed is so slow as an An-225…

I just want to enjoy flying as the beautiful, breathtaking plane in IF;)
I hope all of you understand my intension. Thanks!

Thank you;)

Some people just don’t realise. If it really were then it would say unknown.

Yes, this may be a good opportunity to say I am not pranking or tricking you.
Seriously.
I’ve flown as an An-225 for several months though.

This thread was a good opportunity for me to know other pilots’ opinions
Because I’ve never thought that.
It’s really important to know other perspective.

So now, please remember there is an Antonov lover;)
Anyway, thank you!

Can I have your autograph?

I love how I read the whole thread not knowing what an Antanov 255 was.
