Inspired by the thread on the main boards, I found this link that tracks everywhere the coyotes fly and in real time! Neat stuff!

Cool! I always wonder when they'll be leaving for their next game, when they come home, etc.

Nice ride. Those 727s are good planes. The major carriers phased them out due to noise regulations, but they supposedly handle very nicely. I have completed literally tens of hours' flying time in Flight Simulator, so you should totally listen to me on this.

I've tried to play those flight simulator games, another video game I'm not good at.

I tell you what, you can talk all you want about high scores, kill-to-death ratios, and rescuing the princess... but the coolest feeling I've ever gotten from a video game came from landing jet liners in Flight Simulator, with no HUD or automated anything. It's something that happens thousands of times every day around the world, but ******* does it feel like an accomplishment.

Hey, cool. I've got a model of the last L-1011 Delta operated back in the 90s. What does he fly?

MD88/90. He flew for Mesa air after graduating from their school in Farmington,nm. He then flew for continental or some place like that. He loves it though.

I had a flight simulator lab in middle school.... I could never land it so I spent a week crashing into buildings.

You know some people would say that is a cause of today's violence.

Play Battlefield 3. Helicopter, jet, tank, it don't matter. Nothing like taking heavy gunfire while maneuvering your way through collapsing buildings working as a team. It's not pretty on the stats but it's winning the hard way.

That Cactus looks like a Nazi symbol running.

Wile E Coyotes 03-05-2012 05:31 PM

Yeah, you can use flight simulator 2004 or flight simulator X to go on VATSIM.

I'm going to have to try that, but only when I can actually fly the plane lol. I can barely get it off the runway, I'm so bad at those games, even though they intrigue me so much.

There are guides on the internet. The rest is just practice. FSX has a pretty elaborate tutorial, too, if you haven't tried it yet.

Let's see how quickly they leave Pittsburgh.
