Epcot centre and Disney world
Near Orlando, Florida, you can see Epcot center and Disney World. The closest
airport is Epcot.
Hot Air balloons
Hot air balloons in Arizona! Go to phoenix skyharbour (KPHX) runway 26R, fly
heading 330, 14.5 miles, alt 5000. fs2000 has 3 and in fs98 I found 5.
Shuttle at Andrews AFB
There is a shuttle near the hangars of Andrews AFB. There is another one at the
launch facility in Florida.
Set the date back to august 11, 1999. And time at 12:20. Then go to north
France, Reims for example...take a look at the sun. Is it there or is there a
sign of the great eclipse of 1999? If you can't find it (don't expect a full
eclipse...) use the situation file, select it in fs2000 and look upwards into
the sun using shift-backspace.
Did you see Bill Gates house?
Gates' house on Lake Washington. Not very ornate, but it's there, just on the
the south side of the north bridge.
Berlin wall or not....
Try this, go to Berlin where the famous wall use to be. Next, set your date back
in time, before the wall was torn down. Whala! the wall appears! This is a FS98
easter egg too.
Go to the stadium in Atlanta where they had the Olympics. Set your date for the
period when the Olympics were held, July 19, 1996 v August ??, 1996. You will
see the stadium fill with people and the Olympic torch will light. This is a
FS98 easter egg too.
Place yourself on December 17th 1903 in this situation......Ever seen the Wright
Flyer at Kitty Hawk. Berlin, Atlanta and Wright are available as FS2000
You can go to Hawaii and set your date back before the volcano eruption and the
eruption will disappear.
Never descending glider
I guess this is not a easter egg but a bug. But what does it matter: Slew the
glider up to >80K feet (you can go to 100K in case you're wondering!). Now,
start flying! The tumbling might be somewhat expected. BUT you will never hit
the ground. You can let it go all night and it will actually gain a few feet.
US customs balloon
Would a balloon tethered on the end of a 13,550 cable in the Flordia Keys be
considered an Easter Egg? Goto Summerland Key Cove (ID X20) runway 30. Take off
and fly runway heading. Very shortly after take off you will see a cable
extending from the ground up. On the end of that cable at an altitude of 13,550
feet up is a balloon. Or you can go to N024 41 29.4486 W081 30 51.4133 Alt
13,550 feet, hdg 02 mag. This will put the balloon directly in front of you.
These balloons are known as aerostats, balloons with radar transmitters to
assist US custom's efforts to stem illegal entry by air.
