Well Went to Chicago this Weekend...
...And it was a first timer for me, for instance I got to live my first ever SNOW STORM!! It sounds funny but not much snow in El Salvador And I have to say it was fun!! As we where approaching O´Hare International I started recognizing the ¨Scenery¨... And why is that...??? Answer is really simple!
FS98,FS2000,FS2002... All of them started at Chicago Meigs Field Runway 36!!
I remember the million times I´ve taken off at Meigs and followed the preset ILS To runway 27R If I recall correctly!! Well we didn´t land on that Runway but I manage to recognize the city from FS!! It was a clear night that day fortunatelly... the day before there was a Big Snow storm which made that Southwest Jet Skid off the Runway... It was not the case that night... I managed to see the city which was a known ¨VIRTUAL¨ view for me and also managed to see a bit where I guess Meigs Field used to be! It was a very nice experience and made me think that just some years ago I was sitting in front of my PC flying in that same place without knowing I might do it someday for real!!
Dreams do come true guys just have to work hard for them!! Just wanted to share this with you!!
