    I promised @jean marc to take a more in depth look at the different archeological sites of Easter Island, so the incredible happened: I took a plane that's not a 777 and started to a little tour of the island. The first Moai greet us at the airport. I still wonder whether the ones at the airport are real or fake. Takeoff. No calculations performed. We head towards the southeast. The first Moai on the beach! Taking a dive... ... spotting the next Moai... ... which all seem to turn their backs at the sea. Another one. Chasings boats in the bay of Hutuiti... A rock named Motu Marotiri. Crossing the island... ... towards Anakena Bay. This deserves a closer look. I barely make it up the beach! Back on the other side at Tongariki, with one of the largest Ahu on Easter Island. The sleeping volcano of Rano Raraku. A lot of the Moai here are incomplete. Across the island. The forest is man-made. The ancient Rapa Nui had cut down all the trees on the island for the production of new Moai. Towards Hanga Roa. Approach lights of runway 10 Visiting the volcano of Rano Kau. The visitor's center at the Orongo archeological site, an important ceremonial place for the ancient Rapa Nui. The cliffs are 300m high. Orongo with the smaller islets of Motu Nui and Motu Iti. Well, according to the 1994 movie of the same name, the young men of the Rapa Nui would climb down the cliffs and swim out to the rocks to snatch a bird's egg and bring it back up the cliffs. Approaching Rwy 10 at Mataveri. That's it! See you in Rapa Nui!

    Leaving Barcelona I had a good view of the tower... ... and found @Captain Lars just ahead of me. I had to wait for his huge wake before I could get off... ... on the initial SID towards the sea... ... and then westwards. Over the countryside, into dawn and clouds... ... and towards the Bay of Biscay. Fantastic visibility. At least ILS helps. Safe. Looks unique here... But the jetways really are not perfectly placed...

    Hi all, The title says it all ... Just a few from my first flight in TE GBS. Hope you enjoy them and thanks very much for viewing All shots are straight from the V key Cheers R Just out of Southhampton about 6:00 am and caught the sunrise ... Love the trains but glad I'm no longer a commuter ... This scenery is -- GOSH!! Now just advancing timeframe around a bit to check lighting and shadows Mid morning This is just plain wonderful Water never looked so good -- masking is very well done This is just pure enjoyment !! What would flying by the coast be without the sea mist starting to come in Where has the time gone? It's definitely later than I thought -- has Orbx added time travel to this? It's probably best to head back, not much to see now And then it starts to clear -- maybe just a few moments more .... And now it's time to head on back .... Hope you enjoyed this and thanks for viewing. Cheers!

    Leaving Glascow bound for a far port..a very evident high pressure haze to give atmosphere. Passing Auld Reekie (Edinburgh..reekie means smelly) A chance half and half shot over Perth, Scotland.

    RAF Welford, Berkshire, England, UK was a major British and American transport/troop airfield during WW2. It is now one of the largest American heavy air munitions depots in Western Europe. The remains of the old airfield can still be seen beautifully in Orbx's TE GB South. In the pic it is overflown by a USAF DC-3/C-47/Dakota as would have been there in large numbers during the war. The link below provides some additional detailed history for those interested. I love the old WW2 RAF airfields - so many have been lost, but many can still be clearly identified from the air. Cheers. (Click and full-screen for best pic.) https://sites.google.com/site/stratojetman/rafwelford

    Thank you for watching and commenting Lars. When I saw the 777 I immediately thought "I have to take this picture for Lars". Sounds as if you have some lovely long haul work to do now. You got to fing a good routing from Rapa Nui! Dankeschön Bermuda! Thank you Iain. Thanks Martyn. At least the AC in the airbus was working well - having a 40 minute delay with a 50 minute connection ahead was already heating me up... Thank you very much John! Two possibilities come to my mind for that: Either it was the wine I was drinking during real & simmed flight . Or EZCA .

    V Thats awesome! Invercargill will work well with Queenstown. Looking forward to this and any other NZ airports. Possibly can help with Tauranga and other Bay of Plenty and Coromandel airports if any of those are on the radar.

    Hi Naki, I am still working on Wanganui, but had a few issues, so while that is sorted out I have been busy working on Invercargill, hope that explains

    Best images from KSBA yet Paul but...….. .....it could have even been better with a Mustang or PA-30, not detracting from what a fine plane the Aztec is!

    A glorious set and I like that plane. Excellent scenery of course and I must say, how stylish is that terminal building. A wonderful change from the usual metal and glass.

    Thanks a lot Paul, I really think I have enough input now to make my choice after studying all the pro's and con's and reading reviews of the models and manifacturers. Anyway, I'll find my way through this stack of models....no problem.

    Thank you very much, Gerold. Great sim / RL comparison as always, but the best pic is #3, of course. I'm afraid I didn't notice you, but the view astern isn't the best in the 777. I bought KIAD and KDEN and WSSS on saturday, and I admit I'm pondering which UAL flights are going to be next for me, and KIAD - LEBL is one of the routes I was thinking of. But my LEBL is from a different developer, so it would be a bit daring to show...

    My home airport. It’s just a few kms down the road. Most aircraft are Air New Zealand ATR’s, Dash 8 300 and A320’s. Jetstar has one or two daily flights arriving from Auckland as well. That Virgin Australia 737 is no stranger either. The only international flights into NZDN are, I think 4 times a week, with the VA 737 to and from Brisbane. Great shots. Bruce R

    Nice Paul. Regarding your GPS question, I've always thought that it's "realistic" to put whatever you want into the cockpit. It's your plane. And I do know that there are not many Mustangs flying the circuit out there that don;t use GPS in one form or another. whether panel-mount, or stick-on, or IPad.

    Paraparaumu would also be a nice addition if time permits it. I live near it if you guys ever need some shots.
