FSX Flights For The Space Shuttle Atlantis

Jump to: Screenshots | Comments | File Details

Flights For The Space Shuttle Atlantis. First you can perform a launch from Cape Canaveral, Florida. Your Shuttle, standing at the launch tower, is prepared for the lift off (ATLANTIS-1.ZIP from Bruce Fitzgerald required). You can watch the spectacle as commander through the window from the cockpit or as spotter from external view. After leaving the stratosphere you can release the boosters and the external tank. Now take control of the shuttle. The second flight is in the orbit in upside down position. Now the blue planet is above your head. Bring out the satellite. Flights from Erwin Welker.
