THE LOUNGE / More TWA trivia

The first purchase of a Boeing 747 was for $22 million, which was the combined value of all US airlines at the time.  The price of a single 747 engine cost more than a single Lockheed Constellation.  In only 55 years, we went from Lindbergh crossing the Atlantic to over a million passengers a year making the trip for less than half the price of a 1927 ocean liner voyage across the Atlantic.

Another aircraft paint that I couldn't find online, so I made one for myself.  Here I am departing EGLL in the 707 Cargojet

GALLERY / Just Flight F-27

I got tired of asking for an Ozark paint for the Just Flight F-27, so I made one of my own.   It's not historically accurate, but it is an Ozark paint, which the plane does not have.  Here is my thumbnail for my paint:

HANGAR/DOWNLOADS / Weathership gauge
« on: August 20, 2017, 06:23:02 PM »
I like this weathership gauge for transatlantic crossings, but found out today that they also have ships in the Pacific. It can be used for KSFO to PHNL and for trips to Japan.  If you haven't downloaded it from Avsim for your propliner, you are missing out. The 307/377, DC-3, DC-4, DC-6, and Connie all have panels set up for it.  During the war there were ferry flights across the GIUK gap by the D.C.-3 and I had no idea. I always thought the distances were too long. Amazing to read about this stuff as I fly for TWAv.  How about a wartime ferry flight as an event, or across the pacific in a Connie?  Man, this airline has me excited to learn more about the history during and after the war in air travel. Thank you guys for keeping the history alive with this VA and Ozark!

HANGAR/DOWNLOADS / Can we substitute the Boeing 377 for the 307?
« on: August 17, 2017, 05:50:39 PM »
I sure enjoy flying this plane, the problem is, TWA never owned one.  However, I do have a livery for it and would like to use it, maybe to sub for the 307

I saw that the Airbus was a substitute for the 737. Anyone have a repaint of the aerosoft airbus in TWA paint?  I didn't find one on the aerosoft site.

Did you know that after the war, TWA had a type certificate and converted a B-17 to civilian air service as an executive aircraft and it was used for exploring new routes overseas?
