Good to see the SWISSAIR CARAVELLE textures getting the cobwebs blown off them
Camilo had I spent ages together working up different historic variations of these several years ago .... and right down to researching the town crest logos for some of the city named aircraft. All part'n'parcel of the fun sometimes associated with producing "accurate" (as possible) texture subjects
Nathan .... your production of this particular video might have been subjected to/punctuated by numerous "stops'n'starts", but for that, it's one of your better productions .... I feel
Just one observation ....
Did you forget about the parachute/brake shute deployed after touchdown and to assist desceleration during rollout after landing ?
It "is" included in this simulations and is activated per the panel .... "IN FS2004".
I don't know if this this particular feature/animation works in FSX though .... it may not.

Thanks for your kind words Mark, this plane is amazing and an absolute joy to fly. The in-depth panel is a bit of a learning curve if you want to fly it right, or just hit the “ready to fly” startup and jump straight in.
If you haven’t tried the Caravelle, I recommend having a go on your next flight, if you’re like me, you won’t be disappointed. Also keep in mind that the fuel may be in kg but FS9 menu is in lbs 😳 that caught me out.... once 😝
I did use the brake parachute after landing, but unfortunately, FS recorder didn’t deploy it when I was replaying the flight for recording 😞. Also, the Varig DC-10 certainly had me sitting on the edge of my seat during the landing, but made for some great footage 😝
I have upgraded my GPU and switched from nVidia to a Radeon RX 5700 XT 8gb video card. Something I have noticed is that as you upgrade your video drivers, occasionally it resets your individual game settings back to default, something which caught me out with this video as you can tell by the jaggies and AA problems. Oh well, live and learn.
I’m already planning my Thunderball flight and will definitely get this one out quicker than the last one.
