Flight sim milestone

I landed a B737 last night on ORD's 32L on a short hop from Indy International. It was a clean landing, but there was a sharp descent at the end which probably would have caused some people to puke.

Even better, the taxi to the gate was very controlled as well.

Why did I bother with the B737 after so many heartbreaks, you ask? Well, as it turns out, there is a new and improved version of Flight Sim out, called Flight Simulator X. It has 18 new aircraft, one of which is an Airbus A321, which for some reason, I think would be easier to fly than a Boeing.

So, long story short, I am trying to improve the skills with the Boeing enough to justify an attempt at the Airbus on Flight Sim X. The new version, by the way, also has a CRJ...woot.
