The playlist is ready!!! �
These are my 4 final flights of a Virgin Atlantic Boeing 747-400.

Mowarin001:
It's no longer news to aviators world-wide that Virgin Atlantic has phased out it's remaining Boeing 747s.
Therefore I am planning a series of videos for my channel to bid this aircraft farewell.
I have specially chosen these routes which were always operated by their 747s and these will be my final flights with a Virgin Atlantic 747.

▶️VS75: Manchester (MAN) - Orlando (MCO)
▶️VS76: Orlando (MCO) - Manchester (MAN)

VS75 will be departing soon. So stay tuned to the channel and subscribe if it's your first visit so you won't miss out on any upcoming video.

Sorry for the delay, I mean, you have to make flights to have flight pictures, am I right?

This is a British Caledonian Boeing 737-800 touching down at Dublin Airport EIDW

While this is an Alitalia McDonnell Douglas MD-80, climbing to FL220 on the VATSIM network, the controllers were joking that I should fly low, unless my 40-year old engines would fail, little did they know that our very own Dana Air, still uses the 40-year old beast

Hey @Mowarin001, I haven't heard from you (making those awesome videos of course wink anyway, I've noticed from your videos that you use Mouse Yoke to fly, before I got my physical yoke, I used virtual yoke app, its full version is payware (if you want I can send you a google drive link to download it from me) but it really makes the flight sim experience more enjoyable, and I, for one, think it would make your videos look better, rather than seeing your mouse flying around trying to control that 747 grin

Any who, here are today's pictures:
This is an easyjet Airbus A320 payware version from flightsimlabs (and also, since you are the only flight simmer I've met in Nigeria, I want to gift you 5 payware addons for XPlane on me!) Landing at Vienna Airport amidst heavy lightning

This is a PMDG Boeing 777 painted in Landor Associates Livery, Landing at London-Gatwick EGKK after a 7-hour long haul from..... LAGOS!
I actually flew this flight on the VATSIM network as "SPEEDBIRD 62A" from around 1000Z - 1630Z, I was actually told to divert to EGKK because of heavy traffic at Heathrow

Exactly cheesy!!! That's the thing about our airlines in Nigeria. 95% of our fleet consists of these old model aircraft, majority of the aircraft we have were previously used by four different airlines already. So we're basically buying them 5th hand cry.
Though some might have cool airconditioned cabins, the flight deck is not appetizing at all for aviators like you and I cry.
I've even seen the flight deck of a Boeing 737Classic, owned by Air Peace and it was nothing to write home about, due to poor maintenance.
I think our aviation sector really needs some attention!!!

Quick question. Do you use Xplane 10 or 11, and also, write down aircraft, sceneries, anything that I should get. But remember, only 5 in total

They're great, I'll send you the link for the Dubai scenery soon, when I purchased it, it was stated that it would take 5 to 10 business days to process the payment since I used PayPal. And also please send your WhatsApp number to my email. Fun Fact: did you notice that the file you downloaded, was exactly 747mb! And if you can, MORE PICTURES!!!!
