I've followed this guy for a while, he must be quite wealthy to afford these toys. His first was a B737-800 home simulator

Now I see he has a B747 sim.

These guys do a number of professional sims! Just insane, a fraction of the cost of the proper sims but the price still brings tears to a man's eyes!

Only after a minute or two did it hit me. This dude has a serious piece of equipment, yet sits in the left seat without a headset!! :nono:

He has all the bells and whistles around him, and could enhance his experience if he was talking to the ATC online. I found that initially in FS9/FSX the flying envelope opened up so much more for me, when you added the live ATC to the plan. No longer could you just fly from A to B, but you now had to observe the rules of the air spaces that were in operation of the country you had chosen to operate in.

Having said that I do have a green glow around me. :green: :green:
