  1. At least we could see you with the anti-camouflage wings!
  2. My first though when seeing these pictures was: "That would be a place for Jack´s Corvette!". But he was faster, not only at the steering wheel.
  3. Lovely visit to Holger´s backyard. You were getting around, Martyn...
  4. A lovely route, and a well suited plane, Bernd. Good to see you slowed her down well for a successful landing.
  5. Thank you, Iain! Thanks Brad. partly because of great scenery, partly because the original is not bad either. Thank you Adam! Not much enough, Jack - just the number of pictures and memories is so high! Indeed a great place to be. We spent there 2 days, and spotted just a bat. I mean a bit.
  6. Lovely shots, and a very well suited plane! https://www.kenmoreair.com/
  7. I suspect the reason was the weather, not the condition of the pilot? If so, I see this as a great proof of realism in the weather simulation....
  8. A surprising use for the intercontinental Connie. Let her fly as she wants, "Overseas"!
  9. Following the afternoon trip... ... we did not stay in Hervey Bay. Instead, we took a seamless connection... ... checked the parking lot of Woolworth Uranagan, ... ... and followed River Heads Road southwards for a short while. River Heads is the place where you park your car, ... ... and wait... ... before the shuttle bus takes you to the barge terminal. From there you "just" cross the bay to Fraser Island ... ... until you see Kingfisher Bay Resort https://www.kingfisherbay.com/: Perhaps you stay aware when walking at the beach... But the resort itself is a perfect place to stay some days. I´ll virtually do so, as I go travelling for the next two weeks (in a region without any Orbx ). (Click on the picture to fully enjoy.)
  10. Thank you for the comments, Joe! Thank you Iain. My pleasure, Karoly...! Low and slow, as the scenery deserves... Thank you John! And you, John, thank you as well! Sorry for no real pics this time, I´ll improve! Thank you jack. Knowing these places is easy, when you have been driving there for 3 hours... The gaps I would close with Plan-G, bit Navmap can do it as well. I did know some forum members live along that way, at least from North Brissie to Noosa. But life is too short (and my family would not be totally fascinated by simmers talk, I guess). Lovely to hear I came through your backyard! Thanks Martyn. Indeed the local sceneries like Cairns, Alice and here Hervey Bay are totally exciting (or a place for geographic education). I can even tell you which roads in Cairns had been changed... Sometimes you need to carry memories in your head, even though we travelled with 4 cameras and 5 mobiles...
  11. You will surely believe I did this so often! Last time was when we returned with family from Singapore: After 40 hours of travelling through 3 continents we landed in terminal 1B, walked 1 h to reach a bus departing in terminal 1B...
  12. Ah, that´s an incident I had heard of, and forgotten...
  13. Nice shots from your short holiday weekend in the mediterranean.
  14. After finally finding the rental car station at the end of the previous post ... ... we went on, using the motorways named in the title. Since I was the driver, there´ll be no real life photos in this post. It was already complicated enough for me to protect the wipers from getting totally worn whenever I had to change lines or directions... Easier was the flight out of blurry Brisbane... ... to the confusing intersections of Moreton Drive into the M1, ... ... along the Boondall Wetlands ... ... and then merging with the M3 into Bruce Highway. Many options for a stop in Orbx/OZx lands: Passing Redcliffe, ... ... Caboolture, ... ... the Glasshouse Mountains ... ... and Caloundra. It is nice to see the roads modeled in 3D, ... ... but not so nice to see Gympies runway also modeled in "3D". The city itself has a remarkable number of traffic lights, all in red of course. Finally we passed them ... ... to the settlements of Hervey Bay. Uranagan below. Can you see the 16 squares of the sunshades left from the middle, just next to the park? That is the supermarket where we grabbed some food for the next leg, wait... With this vehicle we just went downwind... ... into YHBA. The road below us is Booral Road. I was excited to see the airport from the road, but my family did not react quick enough to take a picture! We might have to come back... Touchdown. Stay tuned.
  15. I am not sure if you should better do the maintenance inside a building. Looks pretty cold outside...
  16. I have observed the same astonishing and fascinating effects. They are probably best observed on your own computer and in motion, I feel my own screenshots are a bit less impressive.
  17. Thank you John. Honestly I had a big number of real & simmed pictures to select the interesting and / or matching ones. Thank you, John. As said directly above... Thanks Iain! I did my best, Captain! My pleasure, John. Did you notice the similarities in the reef islands? Thanks Joe! Thank you Adam. ... and some work, Patrick...! Thanks Jack. Indeed it is great to see how good some parts are met by Orbx. Look at the reef islands - totally matching! Thank you Martyn! No no, only long arms. Or... a helpful daughter on the A-seat... I knew it was right not to choose JetStar, at least when I saw them being loaded from the blue cart. Hmmm, what is a "Harrison"? I felt like a "Sully" and did not know if that stuff was solid. I have set all airports to "AUv2", but still hope that Orbx will soon come up with an integrated and working update of airport elevations for AUv2.
  18. Lovely mix of real and simmed reality, you know I like that. I have instantly seen the reason for flying to PHNL: Free WiFi is an advantage you will not see working at Germany´s airports. That sounds like Frankfurt. And illustrates wha airports need to be redesigned from time to time, instead of just adding another annex.
  19. Hmmm, was it something we can learn from?
  20. Ok, our time in Cairns had come to an end, ... ... so we needed to get ready for another exciting location. First we took the commuter from Cairns, ... ... and checked the competition. JetStar even parks on the wrong side. The SID leads directly out to the sea... ... making it difficult to catch a good city view. Just after the first hills you see the sugar cane fields of Gordonvale, ... ... while the left side of the plane can enjoy the reef islands. After passing the Hervey Bay area (far in the distance)... ... the STARs SMOK5x lead us along Redcliffe. A beautiful final into the 19 over Brisbane harbour and the mudflats. Not so beautiful the ground textures in YBBN since the AUv2 upgrade. And difficult to land... But at least we found a proper parking lot. Now let´s try to find the rental car station (not easy I can tell you)!
  21. I am constantly surprised how many high-tech airlines serve Alaska. Not mentioning their freight and catering.
  22. Cool shots. And probably one bear would give enough food for a good catering, even on Mule Air Services. Maybe you have found the new prototype for Boeing to replace their outdated 737. This plane looks like it has reliable aerodynamics, nothing where you have to add some software tweaks.
  23. I visit Crocodile country, and you go hiking with the bears. This forum seems to be a place of crazy characters.
  24. Hahaha! There have been more serious mistakes caused by the auto confusion !
