[OFFICIAL] Weekly Dev Update Screenshot Challenge: Historic Aircraft

It’s time for another screenshot challenge! The idea is to collectively explore different parts of the world together - areas that may be very familiar to you or perhaps a new place you have never flown before. Feel free to find others to fly with to capture the challenge, or go solo!

Last week’s winner from Gliders: @EPPRglider81

This Week’s Challenge

Historic Aircraft - A number of historic aircraft were added to MSFS2020 with the 40th Anniversary Edition, including (but not limited to!) the Wright Flyer, Ryan NYP Spirit of St. Louis, and the Hughes H-4 Hercules.

This week we want you to capture screenshots that celebrates these aviation legends!

If you have any screenshot challenge ideas for the future, send @Jummivana a DM!

  2. Any type of weather
  3. Code of Conduct appropriate liveries
  4. Default aircraft and scenery, or aircraft and scenery from the MSFS Marketplace

Does the A310 count for this challenge?

This challenge is only for historic aircraft added to MSFS. The A310 isn’t in this class.

Historical aircraft can be in the base sim or ingame marketplace.

That’s a lovely shot. Beautiful colours. I almost didn’t see the glider though! So many amazing submissions for that challenge last week it must have been hard to pick a winner.

Congratulations to @EPPRglider81 :tada:

Curtiss JN-4 Jenny (1915) over Out Skerries

The Curtiss JN “Jenny” was a series of biplanes built by the Curtiss Aeroplane Company of Hammondsport, New York, later the Curtiss Aeroplane and Motor Company. Although the Curtiss JN series was originally produced as a training aircraft for the US Army, thousands of surplus Jennys were sold at bargain prices to private owners in the years after the war and became central to the barnstorming era that helped awaken the US to civil aviation through much of the 1920s
