    Was playing around with a relatively new SB-800… I apologize for the soft image, it was taken hand held with very poor lighting. My selection of aperture was very bad.

    A virtual pat on the back for the first person to identify this contraption!

    Looks like a flight sim of some sort. Wouldn't have the first clue which jet it'd be for though.

    You are correct SirÂ… This is a simulator, one of 18 full flight simulators we (union members, IAMAW local 1833) proudly maintain for Northwest.

    This particular device simulates an Airbus A330.

    Fairly big... I believe the Northwest 3 class configuration for this airplane works out to about 300 passengers.

    I've been on about 4 A330 in the last few weeks...fairly large. On a side note...the Lufthansa A330's economy seats are very close to one another...very uncomfortable. Air Canada's are much better.

    Being a corporate pilot for several years, I never had the chance to "fly" a simulator of this type. It was only the desktop computer type and it never did get off the ground! :lol:

    What flavor aircraft did you fly as a corporate pilot?

    Even I would have recognised this at once. But others were here faster than I was to say it is a flight simulator.
    I am married to an always-absent-person who spends his days either at work (so absent from home) or in his study "flying planes" on the desktop flight simulator ... thankfully NEVER getting off the ground with his "planes"! (But he is never "here" all the same!)

    Cessna - 210, 310 and 421. I have just over 1000 total hours. :D

    Where in the world is "Itchycoo Park".

    Friend of mine had to do a landing in a 310 a few years ago with a failed nose-gear... Scary stuff, but all went well.

    Itchycoo Park is a title of a song released by The Small Faces in 1967... One of my favorite tunes from that era.:wink:

    Give it a listen here: [ame]http://youtube.com/watch?v=3jz-yAf87Mc[/ame]

    Thanks, good song......glad it wasn't rap!

    Of all the planes, my favorite was the 210. It had a STOL kit and I could bring her in between 40 and 45 knots. It was great for many of the grass fields I had to use.
