Shalom and greetings all my pals,

Presenting recreation of real life Braniff flight of DC-8-62's arrival at KCOS City of Colorado Springs Municipal Airport located 6 miles southeast of Colorado Springs, Colorado that is the second busiest commercial service airport in the state

Seconds before touchdown on runway 35R after two circles waiting for turn to land due to heavy commuter traffic between KCOS and KDEN

Exciting tire smoke still kept spewing while front landing gear was gliding down slowly in most graceful manner (notice clouds on ground level in background

Amazing photos! Nice posting. Is that FSX you're using? What DC-8 is that? I really have to upgrade my desktop and flightsim some day....

Landing and departing from high altitude airports is always exciting. First, your ground speed is higher because your indicated is lower. That and the thinner air makes for some very long takeoff and landing runs, which is why COS has a 13,000' runway!

Thanks for kind words. I am using FSX Deluxe with SP1 and SP2. The DC-8 is freeware from HJG but but the talented repainter Rofolfo Estrella painted this livery to make this very old model look like brand new and expensive payware add on!!! Too bad Rofolfo Estrella is not painting more Braniff liveries for DC-8s and 707s. I have been trying to reach him without luck to ask him to paint Braniff 707 liveries used for Quito operations.
