Hi,

I was recently on this flight, and this actual aircraft and so thought I would share how I am getting along with the CLS A340-600. I have had her just over a month now and have flown nothing else since getting her. I enjoy this aircraft alot and thought I would share.

I am posting links also as there's more than five shots, and I fly her via the virtual cockpit view.

At the gate in Boston Logan (KBOS) terminal E waiting for the bags to be loaded

(zoomed in a little).

I use George Grimshaws brilliant Boston Logan V2.1 scenery, and for Heathrow it was the UK2000 Heathrow Pro.

Thanks for looking and for sharing this flight with me, It's my usual smile.gif

I make all of my flight plans for the A346 in FSNavigator, exporting them into FS2004 for use with the A340's FMC. The North Atlantic tracks change daily, and so the flightplan does also. Check out Flightaware.com and search for VIR12 and you'll see what I mean.

This particular flight's plan for April 28th was:

KBOS FRILL TUSKY N63B VIXUN NATV LIMRI NATV DOLIP UN523 CRK UL607 EVRIN UL607 NUMPO Y3 NIGIT OCK1F EGLL

Track V for the 28th April was

VIXUN LOGSU 49/50 50/40 51/30 52/20 LIMRI DOLIP

So in FSNav I'ld enter the whole route including the track waypoints and airway waypoints not listed in the actual flight plan.

You can get the daily North Atlantic tracks here:

https://www.notams.j...common/nat.html

I did include that flight plan for you to download and use if you like, and for anyone else who is interested in a nice shortish A346 route.

The AI Traffic was compiled by a friend in a VA I fly for who is cool at that kind of thing and sent it to me. It's Project AI I think for the most part with some others in there also, no clue though really to be honest.
