@skyboat

;)

The Saint-Saens Symphony No3 "With Organ"* is indeed quite a dramatic piece with a very appropriate finale to be the USA tour finale theme :D


I guess is the final demonstration that C minor is the most Symphonic Tonic available (blushing-- thinking on the 5th)

@IAHM-COL-- Hahahah! You are correct, but only in the context of speaking Spanish or French.

My copy of Saint-Saens' Symphony Number 3 performed by the Berliner Philarmoniker conducted by James Levine (Deutsche Grammaphon 419 617-2) has the following title text in four languages:

Symphonie Nr. 3 c-moll op. 78 >>Orgel-Symphonie<<
Symphony No. 3 in C minor, op. 78 "Organ"
Symphonie no 3 en ut mineur, op. 78 <<avec Orgue>>
Sinfonia n. 3 in do minore, op 78 "con organo"

So, assuming the folks at DG are accurate in their copy, by convention, the title of the symphony has been determined according to the language in which the title is written, although I will allow that the "with organ" is a more literal translation of Saint-Saens' French designation.

P.S., If we were looking at a biblical phrase, we would call the above an "interlinear translation," four languages stacked all together so they can be easily compared, not only for accuracy but also the nuances of how the different languages translate the same text. Why in German and English is the word "mit" or "with" not used if Saint-Saens wrote it that way in French? That is a legitimate linguistic question. And there may be (and probably is) a specific historical reason or series of events when the piece was first published that determined the way it is stated.

Levine is among my favorite directors. I've got Orff's Carmina Burana directed by him from the DG. It's outstanding production

Okay, I bring the Lineage1000 from the VIP collection. My first flight in the USA Tour was with an ERJ-195, so this kind of closes the circle.

... and about the music: The German title "Orgel-Symphonie" is also to understand as "symphony played on an organ". Actually, this "Orgel-" is even stronger than a "with", it means, it is a symphony written for organs.

Help!

Here is my beautiful MD-10 flying over an idyllic scene. Notice anything unusual? It has no livery! As we have been updating and improving the MD-10, somewhere along the line, the livery pathway got broken. I and several others have tried to find it, but to no avail.

I am pleading with someone who is a livery uber-expert to contact me if you would be willing to take a look at the MD-10 on FGMEMBERS and try to find what we unintentionally broke. I'd like to have it fixed before August 19, so anyone choosing to fly the MD-10 will have full access to the liveries that are there!

Help me Obi-Livery, you're my only hope!

@ IAHM_COL: That's weird but encouraging. That means the problem is in all likelihood on my side. Thanks for checking. Now we have something we can work on.

Thanks to @IHAM-COL who took me through the git sequence to fix my liveries. It appears the problem was on my side.

All of you should be able to choose the livery of your choice. Look for possibly some new liveries before the tour, so you may have to update your current model.
