747-400 approach to Melbourne, Australia.

Post by GeorgeP »

G'day all,

during the Covid-19 lock-down in Melbourne, if the birds do not co-operate (see General Photography forum), I retreat indoors and shoot a few ILS approaches on the simulator. This one is to Melbourne's runway 16 and the sim package that I'm using is a Prepared v4 plus a PMDG 747-400 add-on. I am happy to receive C & C from anyone who can give some pointers on how to improve my technique. Hope you like it and thanks for viewing.

That looked lovely and smooth George.
I've travelled and done some landings in a 747 whereby I thought the Stewardess had had a go at landing it!

Thanks for the critique, reheat. The rate of descent at touchdown is a little higher than I would have liked, but it's a good start for someone who has only flown aircraft as complex as a Piper Arrow III. Had it been a 'real' aircraft, I'm sure that it could have been used for a commercial flight after my landing. :wink:
Cheers,
