New Very Happy Member

Hey there everyone! Just wanted to submit a quick post to greet you all as a day old member of this website. I am absolutely loving it too! :smiley: I found it as I was keen to track a flight a relative was making yesterday from YSSY to YYVR and couldn’t believe how much information it could tell you.

I’m a fanatic for Aviation, or an AVGEEK, in other words! So feel free to get in touch if you’d just like to have a chat about anything related. At the moment I’m excited about the new Boeing planes that are in R&D (sorry Airbus fans).

I look forward to hearing from any of you around the world soon!

Cheers, Ollie

No need to be sorry - what type of airplane is it if there’s no yoke and you must let George (computer) do the flying all the time?


#3

Not quite sure if it’s what you were suggesting, but no I sadly am not a pilot nor have a license. I’m just an avid fan of planes, airports and aviation in general. There’s so much I’m wishing to learn though! :slight_smile:

Airbus aircraft have a joystick while Boeing’s have a traditional yoke. Compare this picture of an Airbus A320 cockpit with one of a 737 cockpit.

Thanks mate…definitely prefer the Boeing yoke! I mostly ignore the Airbus on MS FSX…simply what I find more natural. :slight_smile:

Greetings Ollie, also looking forward to Uniteds first 787 to come to Denver International Airport in August! It will fly KDEN-RJAA route! :smiley:

Welcome, Ollie!

Although, I feel completely new here too… but I agree. I can’t believe how awesome this site is, for so many reasons. Flight tracking, news, photos… A mobile app… I’m sure there’s more I haven’t even discovered yet.

As you say you’re looking forward to hearing from anyone around the world: Greetings from California! I’d love to visit your half of the world at some point.

Cheers back at you,

Kinji

Greetings from Texas! I am relatively new here as well and specialize in aviation photography. I have run of our little field. Sometimes some real surprises come in like RC-135s, 757s and some large cargo jets from the Air Force and Navy. Once or twice I have caught cargo craft from the Royal Air Force and one or two planes from Ukraine (rare). Welcome aboard.
