Very Excusive Comprehensive Review of New Model Base Shorts 360

Postby Aharon » Thu May 16, 2019 2:08 am

Shalom and greetings all my pals,

Please permit me to present you very exclusive comprehensive close up review of brand new freeware Shorts Brothers Short 360 model base created by Robert James Richardson for use of FSX and P3D!!!!

Brand new plane for Air Jamaica parked ready for inspection at secret apron on MKJS Sangster International Airport located 3 miles east of Montego Bay, Jamaica

Image

Time for me to have close inspection of this brand new plane before its first maiden passenger flight!!

Image

Inspecting left side of the plane and time for me to head to the passenger stair

Image

Climbing on passenger stair

Image

Whoa a kitchen gallery and bathroom in back of the plane!! Did not know Shorts 360 has kitchen and bathroom!

Image

Nice rear right passenger door details!!

Image

Opening the door to test it

Image

Coming out of right rear passenger door to inspect landing gear wheels

Image

Returning to get into plane from right rear passenger door to inspect new seats

Image

WHOA WHOA a nice office with all LEATHER seats!

Image

Dig those nice gauges!!

Image

Overhead panel is where you should start engines!!!

Image

Whoaaaa dig those beautiful crisp sharp realistic looking cockpit gauges!

Image

I love this FANCY speedometer gauge!!!! So beautiful!!

Image

It is so HOT in Jamaica so let's see if I can open cockpit window???

Image

LOOK I can open cockpit window!!

Image

Image

It is STILL TOO HOT in Jamaica mmmmm maybe I can open the emergency door to let more air in??

Image

yahhhhh I can open the emergency exit door!!!

Image

Image

Look!! I can look up at the sky if I want to check to see if it is cloudy or not!!

Image

Look at the cool engine throttle!!

Image

Time for me to make pre-flight check around the plane!

Image

Checking the nose and its cargo hold

Image

Opening all cargo doors to load passenger luggages

Image

Checking engine and wing

Image

Testing and opening to see if the emergency exit door is working

Image

Starting left engine!!

Image

Starting right engine!!

Image

Revving up new engine to test it

Image

Pilots are being very busy checking all new gauges to see if they are working properly

Image

Oh yes the pilots can move and turn their faces in Shorts 360 plane!! Hey they got to pose for airport spotting photograhers!

Image

Arriving at the gate to pick up excited passengers experiencing their first maiden flight abroad Shorts 360

Image

Making very long taxi to short of runway 07

Image

Still taxiing

Image

Image

Holding short of runway 07 awaiting for take off clearance from airport control tower controllers

Image

Take off clearance has been issued but I am checking to make sure there is no incoming plane. You do NOT want 747 to land on your tiny Shorts 360 plane!

Image

Airborne on climb to 5,000 ft for regular commuter service to MKJP Norman Manley International Airport located south of the island 14 miles away from the center of Kingston the capital of Jamaica

Image

Take off was very smooth and comfy in this new model base without without silly jerky movements producing realistic engine smokes

Image

Making right turn toward the destination

Image

Cruising at 5000 ft

Image

Yes yes yes you can tell from the speedometer that I am testing speed of the new plane before starting usual realistic cruising speed

Image

Cruising

Image

On final runway approach

Image

Image

Still on final runway approach past port

Image

Approach is VERY SMOOTH and the new Shorts 360 model base plane does not require me to make too many speed adjustments to hold the required approach speed making it easy and comfy for me to approach to land

Image

Seconds before touchdown

Image

Image

TOUCHDOWN producing very impressive tire smokes (that is impressive lots of tire smoke for small plane)

Image

Front landing gliding down slowly and smoothly like you expect from jet planes!

Image

Front landing gear wheels making ground contact producing more tire smoke

Image

Braking down

Image

Exiting from runway 12

Image

Holding short of taxiway A awaiting for clearance to taxi to gate

Image

Thank you for viewing my fight report and please stay tuned for my next flight. The new Shorts 360 model base can be found at the website: http://www.robertjamesrichardson.co.uk/ where you can download model base along with 4 liveries, engine sounds, and paint kit!!

Great review Aharon thanks. Hadn't seen this release before so might take a look. The modelling esp of the VC cockpit looks nicely done huh.
It certainly is a rather square machine, even the windows, flying box car ahoy !!!

Deeknow, Adamski, and Splitpin,

Thanks for your kind words. Not sure if New Zealand had those but Australia had those for Qantas (I think).

"Australia had those" they did indeed. I can recall my much traveled Dad (RIP) relating a trip he did in one of those in Australia.
He said it was awful ...very very noisy....and he had flown in Bristol freighters, so it must have been bad.

Again .... great work and thanks for taking the time to post.
