A playable preview of Microsoft Flight Simulator it out, and the YouTube videos are coming in. Here's Airforceproud95 landing a 747-8 at JFK. Warning: a few swear words.



Hot damn, this looks amazing. Although they definitely need to work on the wonky ground vehicles. If you look to the right side of the screen when the fuel truck is barrel rolling, you can also see cars on the highway launching into orbit. :lol:

This is a very dangerous game, because I could easily see myself spending thousands on dollars on a realistic panel/control setup.

I’m a little worried about that myself. Granted, I’m waiting for it to be released on Xbox...

I guess technically it's his first two landings. ;)

His channel is so much fun.

Also, if you're playing online they apparently ping satellite imagery sort of in real time. I watched a video a couple days ago and a guy was flying around his hometown (British Columbia, iirc) and he was pointing out "That's a Tim Horton's; that's a McDonald's; that's my house."

I think I mentioned that a while back when talking about the game. They’re utilizing the cloud to provide real-time data as you fly.

Morgan Webb. That takes me back. That other person on the show drove me crazy and it should have just been her.

Wow, haven't thought about her in a while.

I remember coming home from work at Eat 'N Park late at night and she'd be on one of her shows.
