  1. Having just purchased North & South California in the sale I have been taking many different flights all over the place to explore all the new locations and airports.


    Here are a few from a beautiful VFR fight from KSBD to KMHV skirting along the mountains surrounding greater LA then hopping over and across the arid expanse of the Mojave passing Palmdale and Lancaster along the way. desert in the Real Air Spitfire Mk.XIV.



    Looking out over the wing towards Fontana claiming out of KSBD



    A couple of shots skirting round the clouds over the Angeles National Forrest.... I think I can almost see Matt Farah carving up the highway down there filming a TST video.





    A nice gentle decent over the beginnings of the Mojave Desert with Palmdale just coming into sight before lining up for the Visual 30 into KMHV.

  2. I like using the KMZ files in conjunction with Plan-G to explore points of interest and un-marked(on charts) strips, I have just purchased North and South Callifornia in the sale, and while the NCA.KMZ is in the Orbx user documents folder after instal the SCA on is nowhere to be found (I have looked in all the usual places and searched in explorer), could someone please either point me to where this one might be or post/send me the file.


    Thanks in advance.

  3. A nice late afternoon flight from KSUN to KBZN in the trusty old steed. This particular aircraft was retired from the CP Air fleet in 1974.


    It was a cloudy start out of Friedman



    but things cleared up by the time we reached the ski slopes south of Bozeman



    Short final on the visual approach into 03 at KBZN - a nice short taxi to the ramp. 



    All done for the day - now to head into town for dinner and a brew or two...

    For a man from the Moray Firth area you could find this kind of lousy weather a lot closer :)

    But where would be the fun in that - I have to travel and reassure myself that it is not just a local phenomenon...

  5. A windy approach in dense fog and snow down over the infamous Tongrass Narrows into RW11 at PAKT Ketchikan International.

    Into the soup...



    Down safe and sound.



    Now for the heavy lifting to begin.... someone must have gone ham in the boxing day sales!

  6. Have any of you had problems with the hard surface of the runway at the 31 end being several feet above the actual runway(texture) elevation, then slowly sloping down to meet the actual runway somewhere before B5? I have the terrain resolution set to 5m as the manual suggests.


    The rest of the elevations and sloped surfaces seem perfect including sloped roads in the carpark and behind the terminal.


    Thanks in advance.

  7. Being an Air America Scheme, I suspect the flag is that way in a similar vein to US military shoulder patch flags, which on one side are mirrored so as that both flags are facing forwards and never back, as they believe the US flag should never be in retreat.
