Haha--while we were flying from Switzerland at one point I saw something similar...it was a deep hole in the ground, which had a raised flat platform in the center for an airport. Didn't mark it down though, I'd have to try to find it again...

Just make sure you have a moderate PC. Otherwise, the lag will kinda ruin the experience for ya.
Also, I will need you guys to help me for Luna. THe final scene will involve the shuttle falling short during reentry and having to land at Orlando. For comedic value, it will show tower broadcasting the news to several different aircraft, including a formation of F-18s/T-45s.If you want to record some shots from your perspective, that would be swell.

You should be able to run it with that. You can use a mouse+keyboard, but it's a lot harder than using a joystick.

Where do we fly today? I'd like to know that, because I want to adjust my settings to get a good FPS.

I dunno, I was suggesting we visit the biggest scenery error in the game, S28. Or we could just do more carrier ops.

I might film this one and put it on Youtube like Tex did. If the lag doesn't interfere with anything.

There are very good lessons in the game. Go to "Learning Center", and the last tab will be "Lessons." This is the best way to learn to fly in FSX.

Yes, we use mics. Yes, the game has built-in support for radios.
