  1. Jack, glad you joined in. The NGXu can be flown like the old version, but there are dozens of little goodies to explore that really change the face of the aircraft...including Pushback.
  2. Frisco to Honolulu, with lots of ETOPS information, use of the Auto Cruise etc. Yet the NGXu is still basically the original PMDG with simple loading if you want....but the new EFB will be a whole new experience if I can master it.
  3. Thanks, blokes, for your kind thoughts.
  4. Ticker reminding me to take care, but love the stream of shots from you others. On approach to KSFO, R10L, 4.5 and the new NGXu. Certainly not a salubrious suburb under the flight path.
  5. I know that Edinburgh cannot take the Boeing 777, but it obviously can handle the A350.
  6. Ah Stillwater, very nice ironic twist.
  7. With you on that Big Bend, and Jack, much of the second part of the Outlander story is set in colonial Georgia and South Carolina...
  8. Over the fictional Helwater in the English Lake District, populated with Jamie Fraser, Lord Dunsanay and his family, with Lord John Grey somewhere in the background. Of course if you are not an Outlander fan this will be meaningless to you, therefore we are over the Lake District after departing a cloudy Glascow. Above Orbx full-fat England of course, naturally, properly....
  9. Oh dear, and it was over Scotland by Orbx. You are so tough on us younger members.
  10. Hi Nick and Iain, yesterday I posted a really innocuous shot of a BA 321 entering cloud. When it did not appear in the forum I remade an almost identically worded topic. Drilling holes in the Sky. Both appear to have gone into the ether, never to re-appear. I am certain I followed all the rules, and used an Imgur BBC code. Do you have any trace of them at your end?
  11. I am happy and I look forward to release. I agree, facsimiles are the only possibility given the rapidly changing world of airports and landscapes.
  12. Jack; as usual a superb set of fascinating shots with a great narrative. Be careful what you wish for...never a cold climate for me again.
  13. I agree with Yamba in this. We will have to judge whether the bandwidth restricted version we will get in much of Australia, through the be-cursed NBA or arthritic ADSL2 will be sufficient to match 4.5. Or whether we are in an area where we can go the 5G way, but pricey (and where it is available). I wonder where the perfect reception spots in the world will be...Germany? New York? LA? There won't be too many in Aus.
  14. Sorry about the geography folks, nothing like ONDs moody lights, and Jack's humorous sequences I know. But I just love following progress by reference to other maps and the like. In the first shot the bridge in the centreleft comes over from Annapolis if that helps orientation.
