#317063 Yes please let us know Celestyn (maybe also put a reply to this topic so we get an email :lol: ).

Thanks to Trent, i found a Space Shuttle Simulator. Seems really enjoyable. Link HERE. Not VATSIM possible but maybe fun during your long hops.

#318103 Yep

They took off from KEDW and flew to Amarilla Intl. (KAMA), then to KNFW (Ft. Worth Navy Base) and then to KBAD (Barksdale AFB).

Monday morning, they want to go straight to KTTS (shuttle landing centre, kennedy space station) without any stops.

(p.s. go to www.flightaware.com and search for NASA911 (i'm worried about simulating this online with 911. Wonder how many wallops i'll get :mrgreen: ))
