London

London, FSX

London is the capital of the United Kingdom. The scenery contains many of the famous buildings of the city.

Takeoff from London City (EGLC) and follow the Thames west. You will cross the Tower Bridge. At about 6.5 nm from the airport you will see a great wheel beside the river in Central London. At the opposite side of the river you see the parliament, Palace of Westminster, with its clock tower, Big Ben. Behind is the Westminster Abbey. Shortly west of the parliament lies Buckingham Palace, the residence of the Queen. Finally fly west and land at the great Heathrow airport (EGLL).

London City Airport

London City Airport (EGLC) Photo is located not far from the city centre. Make the runway 10 approach that gives you a great view of the city before you land and a very short distance to high buildings on both sides shortly before touch-down. The ILS glide path is 5.5° which is pretty steep, and in fact earlier it was 7.5°. The types of aircrafts serving the airport are limited by the strict noise requirements due to the central location and the short runway.

Even more exciting is going to Canary Wharf and seeing the planes fly overhead for real! As a Londoner, EGLC is my default airport :-)
graphics are such a let down in this game :(

Thats not really true, the strictness in allowed aircraft are for the short runway (1199m) and the steep approach, just a bit for noise. In the weekdn de airport is closed due to noise...
I agree, the graphics are dodgy, especially when flying at low level! it just dont look real enough to make u feel like u really are flying!
Graphics are great for me. Maybe you need to update the graphiocs cards you have now.
The airport isn't closed at the weekend. My apartment overlooks the runway.
The tower is called St Steven's tower not Big Ben. The bell is called Big Ben.
a good flight to do is to take off from heathrow and follow the river thames
i have a car on fs2004 and ive drove past the big ben. on fsx deluxe however, i have to takeoff in any plane, i usally use concofrde coz i love that plane lol, and fly dead lo over the big ben
for you that say the graphics arent all that good make the settings to ultra high and if that doesnt work get a new graphics card or screen cuz the graphics are more than good on my computer

Have fun building planes, etc, and also fly them! The game is called ROBLOX.com
