365 days of SL, day 304:

More plane-spotting. We'd originally planned to look at a plane in Rochial I'd found a few days ago, but it wasn't there anymore, so I found another one, a DHC-2 Turbo.

Of course, that invited all the wrong Leslie Nielsen jokes. ("Nice beaver!" — "Thanks, I just had it stuffed!") :P

The plane itself was the same model as the one we saw on day 209, BTW, I think. And just so you'll actually get something NEW, here's a picture of a helicopter near by in the same sim, a HH-60J Jayhawk:

Alas, both the helicopter and the plane had some texture loading issues, but I don't think it's particularly obvious in these screenshots.

I'm not sure about these specifically, but in principle, yes; vehicles of all sorts can be built in SL, including flying ones (although I dare say the handling's likely not gonna be anywhere close to a real plane's).

*laughs* Oh, those are all great! Ah, Leslie, wherever you are, I hope you know that you're fondly remembered, and sorely missed.

Amen! I was so sad when he died - especially as I'd had tickets to see him talk a few months previously, which he cancelled after a fall. I had a feeling I'd never get another chance, and I was right :(

(If you'd like any of those icons, BTW, feel free to take.)

Ah, that's a shame; I'm sure it would've been great to see him give a talk.

And I might take you up on that offer — thanks!
