I’m still enjoying, in the rare event that I have a few hours to kill, the X-Plane Flight Simulator. Recently I’ve been learning the Boeing 737 which is produced by the x737 project. I’m really excited that there’s a project to do the Boeing 787 Dreamliner in X-Plane:
I don’t know how the virtual X-Plane 787 cockpit compares to the actual cockpit, but it sure does look pretty slick. Here’s another video of the virtual 787 doing a crosswind landing. One of my main complaints about the x737 simulator is the lack of 3D cockpit, which hopefully will be addressed with the next version of x373, version 4.0, which is also due out soon:
Of course the best preview video is this one, which is very high quality, but isn’t on YouTube. When the Zombie Apocalypse hits, obviously it’s useful to be able to fight your way to your rifle with your pistol, but then what? Fight your way to a plane, and get the hell out of there. That’s my plan!
