The moon landing may be fake, but these instrument landings will, well, I guess also be fake cause it's VATSIM. I guess I didn't really think that one out did I. Huh.

Anyhoo, we have an FNO on 15 March 2019 from 2359-0400z. Swing on by and tell all of my controllers their EC is terrible at writing descriptions!

Au contraire, I think it's brilliant, personally  ;-)

I just have a question: is the Cessna lifting the 747 and the Shuttle, or is it just attached underneath like on a dirigible?

Lifting.  The SCA had to be taken home, too.

True testament to Cessna aircraft.  The Boeing had to be modified, but the Cessna was just fine as-designed, as-built! :)

Pretty interesting... Don't you think... The guy advertising the event as the ZHU event coordinator was last on line as Denver Tower... Nothing like trying to get traffic to your ARTCC by controlling another sector... LOL...
