Thread: Cool Visitor

  1. #1

    Airbus Cool Visitor

    Heres something that doesnt happen everyday my Business Partner and big brother Mike shows up at my door tonight with a visitor and wanted to show this visitor my A340 which is surprisingly still pretty functional and intact, complete, overhead, Front/side views all PFD/ND and Ecam and ped etc. Anyhow this visitor turned out to be none other than Tom Berenger the actor, how cool is tat. Anyhow he loved the sim and we had a blast doing some flights over South Carolina where he now lives. Hes here for a month doing a movie and just finished one called Stiletto. So we flew around abit and I showed him my Martial Arts studio, demoed a few things and now he wants me to work with him on some stuff and tomorrow hes introducing me to Lou Diamond Phillips and Charlie Sheen both who are in town for some movie stuff so overall a pretty cool weekend. Just thought I'd share it with you guys and say how much fun he had flying in my sim. Ill get some pics with him this week or next and postem up

    Regards
    Tim

    Oh and just to let you guys know I did show him the forum and pics of some of yours sims and he thought you guys setups were mindblowing. So see Mike I didnt forget my friends. You guys definitely deserve credit for the amazing job you guys do on your setups and I was proud to show your stuff to him.

    Ok now, I must have been transported back in time or to the future. Didn't you just sell most of your sim not that long ago and said you might restart building a new one in a few years once your new business venture took off? Are you the same Tim, or did you get re-incarnated, or am I just getting more senile?

    Lol Guys,
    Your too funny. Well I didnt need the systems software gary cause I scaled back. I still have the PFD/ND and ECAM ,replaced the FCU with a Goflight Pro MCP temporarily, the overhead , some stuff on pedestal minus radios, CDUs (use only software)and FCU. I still have frame seats and thrust levers, rudders/sticks etc so it still looks very much like a A340 lol. Not quite what it did but it looks good. So overall it still looks pretty good to a novice non builder Havent decided what to do with rest yet, Im definitely not selling it at ridiculous prices Ill keep it instead.Also doing alot of Xplane more than FS9 so I use track IR4 Pro and my cockpit.

    Tim
