  1. That sounds much like the UFO I saw in FSX. See my recent post in the other UFO Thread.
  2. UFO are mostly optical illusions. The main reason they move so dramatically when seen from the air is because the observer is in an airplane which is also moving. Having said that I did once see the famous FSX UFO. When the A2A B377 first came out I flew it around the world several times. One time I was in the South Pacific at about 2 am simulator time with all the lights out at about 25,000 feet. I was no where near land, basically in the middle of no where when a bright white point of light passed at very high speed from behind and above on the left to below dead ahead and then disappeared. The time span was maybe 2 or 3 seconds before it disappeared. I have never seen a UFO in real life.
  3. Possibly the land class is wrong.
  4. After searching around a bit it doesn't seem like there are many repaints. Odd for such a nice plane.
  5. The Aztec is really nice. Beautiful cockpit which appealed to me a lot. Very smooth and fast at altitude but you have to pretend to be on oxygen. I though it was a little slower than the numbers said it should be at FL15 so I went into the config file and raised the propeller thrust scaler to 1.1 that brings it up to about 168 knots which is close enough. It has that odd FSX bug where you have to give it a bit of carb heat by hitting the "H" key while climbing above about FL 12 or the engines loose power. this is odd since the engines are fuel injected and turbocharged. I cheat a lot in FSX. I put in a 22kt tailwind and was busting along at near 300 mph at FL 20.
  6. After seeing your screen shots I checked into the Alabeo Aztec. I bought it and just flew it from Murray to Bowerman. Very nice aircraft!
  7. I am in southern Oregon and we have smoke from the fire up here. Let me make a suggestion. Load up one of your planes with cargo, call it relief supplies and fly into one of the airports near the fire area. when you get there make a contribution for disaster relief to the Red Cross or what ever related charity you prefer. I am loading up the C-47 and heading down that way tonight.
  8. The Dreamliner has one of the most beautiful wings of any airplane I have ever seen.
  9. In FSX i usually fly Visual Flight Rules with GPS navigation from one airport to the next depending mostly on the airports I like. Lately I fly the Comanche, the Twin Comanche, and the Bonanza. I probably do some things different from most. I tweaked the Twin Comanche config file to simulate a turbonormalized engine so I could fly it higher and faster. If I want to simulate real weather I go to Windy.com and use settings in user defined weather to simulate the data on Windy.com. Lately I have also been flying Manfred Jahn's C-47 all over Alaska. I just use the flight planing software native to FSX. I occasionally go on campaigns. I took off from Santa Barbara and Flew the C-47 all the way up to Alaska. Now I am just flying it around up there. If you fly airliners you can try to simulate actual airline schedules. I flew the C-47 loaded up with cargo which I called relief aid from the West Coast to Florida after one of the big hurricanes down there. When I landed in Florida I made a small contribution to the Red Cross for disaster relief. I wouldn't worry too much about what other people do. Just use your imagination.
  10. Port Hardy is one of my favorite stopovers when headed north.
  11. nice shots of Half Dome. Not much at Lee Vinning is there?
  12. Terrific shot of the hula dancer. The airplane is nice too.
