    After many days of testing I'm very satisfied with V5. This is Orbx's LOWI & Europe. Aerosoft's A318. Sometimes I think I get more pleasure out of setting things up than actually flying

    Someone, and I have no idea who, sent me a beautiful 747 model for my birthday. It came yesterday, the 7th, and I just want to say thank you to whomever it was. It was the best gift, the only gift I received. This was taken in honor of them. P3D V5 Orbx's Aus 2, Alice Springs. PMDG 747-8.

    After the sensational impressions I had in OLC Africa I want to re-visit another OLC region. So I queued up on an early morning in Vancouver... ... and finally managed to take off. Just some sights on the way south: Mt. Rainier (plus a little traffic), ... ... the Grand Canyon. In pure OLC - I need to reinstall Maurizio Giorgi´s phenomenal OZx freeware here. Leaving the US near Las Cruzes at the Rio Grande. Mexico City in the haze. The Popocatepetl. At the gulf of Tehuantepec we reached the Pacific... ... encountered dawn near Colombia... ... and arrived in northern Peru already in darkness. Approaching Lima. Here we are. A surprising long flight, now it´s time for some shorter ones!

    P3D 5.? The latest version just installed yesterday. PMDG's updated 737 NGXu. Orbx's TrueEarth Northern California Orbx's KFOT I have to say with Orbx's stuff along with PMDG's 737 my frames were great. Quite pleased so far. This is just a quick out and back to test things out. I just wish I could somehow change the color of the water, it's too blue.

    Welcome back on board China Eastern! This flight will take us from Xi'an to Hong Kong. This is our route for today. Please be advised that the uglyness on this leg is not as strong as before. CoViD-19 measures only allow for one baggage truck per square mile. We'll most certainly have to report these two. Taxiing to the runway. Madam, where is this? - Somewhere around Tennessee. Nice clouds. Even more clouds. The clouds are clearly the stars! Sir, it's forbidden to enter the cockpit! - Just one photo! - That's 500 Yuan for Uncle Wang, please. Descending over Macao. Please note how much green is left there although Macao is said to be a tiny enclave. The Pearl River Estuary with Hong Kong in the background. The arrival takes us a longer bit out over the sea. Landing will take us over the city before finalizing the flight in westerly direction. Madam, are you sure this is Hong Kong? - Please no geography questions. Kai Tak still seems to wait for a plane. The green hills of Hong Kong. Very short final. It's getting evening already in Hong Kong. Thank you for flying with China Eastern again! We admit that the uglyness was somewhat lacking today and apologize for the inconvenience. Next stop Kunming!

    P3D v5. All Orbx stuff. PAHO, Homer. 4.5 is almost completely relegated now to some obscure place on my PC. Here's a quick test around Homer, someday I'm gonna visit this place.

    I've made a repaint for the Aerobask Legacy RG. I haven't painted since the FSX days with Realair. I'm definitely not a pro but I feel pretty good about this paint (even did a custom partial interior). I'm not sure if it's from a paint kit, but it came from a white livery. I guess I'd say its from scratch. What do you think? It's almost finished but I'd like to find a few more mystery parts and give them a splash of color. I also started another paint which is pretty cool - I've added one shot at the bottom Untitled-1 by Ryan Butterworth, on Flickr Untitled-2 by Ryan Butterworth, on Flickr Untitled-3 by Ryan Butterworth, on Flickr Untitled-5 by Ryan Butterworth, on Flickr Untitled-6 by Ryan Butterworth, on Flickr Untitled-7 by Ryan Butterworth, on Flickr Untitled-8 by Ryan Butterworth, on Flickr Untitled-9 by Ryan Butterworth, on Flickr Untitled-11 by Ryan Butterworth, on Flickr Untitled-12 by Ryan Butterworth, on Flickr Untitled-13 by Ryan Butterworth, on Flickr Untitled-14 by Ryan Butterworth, on Flickr 241db_callsign by Ryan Butterworth, on Flickr

    XP11.50b14 is awesome!!! The lighting is simply superb: dramatic yet capable of great subtlety: This is the Khamsin T-6 over Gloucestershire - TEGBS -such a great region to "test fly" over! Silky-smooth performance and no issues. Unless ther are loads of nerdy bugs in the background, I'd say this must be getting close to finished! Adam.

    Mali - Hombori hills between Mopti and Gao, north of Burkina Faso This place at the gate to the Sahara desert is a really beautiful place to fly, with great hills formation (famous Fatma Hand, top for climbers), various and scenic ground details thanks to Open LC Africa, ... It is close to the Dogon country and its rich culture ... ( I've been by there 20 years ago ... it was a safe time ...it seems really dangereous at present to travel in this area with the Jihadist Attack ) To fly slowly and not too high all around was a real pleasure ! Orbx teams really did a great job ! (This is a new AH Miles Hawk Speed6 repaint to fly over Burkina Faso & Mali - it will be uploaded nextly at avsim ) 01 02 03 04 05 06 07 08 09 10 11 12 13 14 15 Here is a map of that place (yes it was a long and sinuous flight path ... why a straight line when the place is beautiful ... ) Happy flights in Africa PS : Great book to read about the place, people and history : Amkoullel the Fula Child by the grand Hampate Ba

    It is tough to explain how much you like something without sounding exaggerated, too emotional, weird or all of that. So I hope I managed to transmit my joy through this selection out of 111 pictures of a flight I just did I used Orbx weather 2, 3 7 and default building storms or so Oh look who's there! It's great when you have a region and also airports isn't it? Hope you didn't get bore by so many Cheers Carlos

    A short domestic flight this time with an Airbus A319 from Nuremburg to Frankfurt, Germany. The weather was fair so it was smooth flying to our destination. Journey time +/-30 minutes. So let's fasten our seatbelts & aim for the skies! Herman After obtaining ground clearance to taxi we head towards runway 28 Just prior to approaching runway 28 the control tower advises us to wait due to incoming traffic Ascending at an angle of approximately 15 degrees to our initial assigned altitude of 9000 feet (FL90) We continue our climb to our planned cruise altitude of 18000 feet (FL180). Having reached our cruising altitude it's time for a nice cup of coffee and before you realize it it is time to start the descent Lining up for our approach runway 25L (@250 degrees and on the left as there a multiple runways) Always busy at these mega airports and a struggle to find a vacant gate At last we find a place to park (though actually reserved for larger aircraft). Once again, our happy passengers disembark. Thanks for looking.

    Thanks Calum Cheers Pete Thanks John Its been doing that a lot here as well. But this week is looking good But the real question is can you trust the weather forecast Cheers! Pete Thanks Adam Cheers The "water" is as pure as a Highland distillery source And you will know what I mean ... Cheers Pete Thank you very much John Pete Thanks Laurie Now that will be something to see. They are restoring one close to where I live. Every summer they have several special evenings, when they do engine run ups. The sight of the exhaust against the night sky and the sounds and the fact that you can feel the engines throbbing is really special Cheers Pete Thanks so much Iain Take care of yourself! Cheers Pete Thanks JM It could be that indeed! But with virtual water, it can be pristine and pure so may some virtual animals and insects are in order. I think maybe dragon flies would be very nice and some butterflies. Maybe my next rendering project Cheers Pete Thanks Taph See you Pete Thanks Richard Cheers Pete Thanks Jack I appreciate you commenting I'm not sure about your assessment - the standards are so high now (that's a very good thing!) , but I am pleased with how they turned out Cheers & thanks again Pete Thank you Lars It could happen with my poor piloting skills unfortunately Cheers! Pete What a wonderful comment Joe! I really appreciate it and I feel that I know exactly what you were trying to express Thank you I am really pleased that you enjoyed them Cheers and all the best!

    Hi @Captain Lars I found the flight I wanted to recommend you Three important elements here 01.- Time was around 5:30 pm 02.- Orbx weather 4 03.- Mountainous terrain 1 & 2 added mystic to the environment and adrenaline as the terrain is very mountainous I departed Kunming at 05:30 ( l like sunsets a lot) towards Panzhihua with not a single idea of how the airport looked like or where it was it exactly, or if I even could land my 777. I simply like to fly vfr towards the airport and discover all, so the flight was always uncertain, I mean I was checking constantly the map how close I was and trying to spot the airport through those clouds. Very exciting! Destination unknown. The views on the way changed in color depending from the angle taken Pictures can not express the sensation/feeling while flying in the area so I recommend that you have this pleasure and amaze yourself with the views, Despite we only have Global Base, trees, building and vector here, plus Orbx weather too, I felt very pleased with the look and experience I like how the clouds cover the terrain and the villages showed through it and of course I was hoping weather was kind with me on arrival So i realized I had to turn right here towards the bridge and phew! a clearer weather I said But guess. The airport was on the right in that bank of clouds! Do you see the red light on top of the mountain on your right. Bingo! I said, I must land it. So flew around to have an idea of how daring I was being I chose this pictures as it shows the least of the airport (as it is prohibited) but you can see below the belly how high the airport was! It was amazing to do this just by vfr and I landed, reached the end of the runway I though I would fall off the cliff but felt very satisfied with it all Hope you can do it yourself as the sensation a picture causes can't be compared to flying it. Another awesome flight is VQPR - ZULS - ZUNZ Cheers Carlos
