  1. They do it by instinct or judgement. Remember this is just a right hand pattern of a visual approach. All commercial pilots have to do many supervised training landings at LOWI before they are allowed to land there as a PIC or a FO. So they all know the surrounding area and the terrain very well and are able to judge when to start the turn according to speed, altitude (yes, they don't have the same altitude when on downwind or base) lateral position etc. And for pilots of small GA planes the church is useless anyway.
  2. Reply #2 : I have now watched the point in the stream when the church should appear and have realized that buildings are generally quite sparse in this video. I assume the church is not there because FlightDeck2Sim has set the slider for the "Number-Of-World-Oobjects" too far to to the left. I assume pushing this slider to the far right would manage the church to be shown.
  3. I haven't bought the x-plane version of LOWI yet, but since the church is icluded in th P3d and the Aerofly versions I would assume it is also included in XP. Anyway, when you are up there on the tableland watching the incoming traffic to 08 you will realize that every pilot in command seems to have his own personal spot to initiate the 180° turn. So the church doesn't seem to be that important.
  4. Ian, I kow. But JV's last comment on Aerofly 2 in Nick's compendium is a bit outdated.
  5. Great comparison. The shots also proof that lighting in XP is almost perfect.
  6. Yeah it's actually located across the German border in Bavaria and quite popular with Innsbruck locals for day trips and wind surfing.
  7. JV, you write ZL 16 with an unsharpen mask. This does not make sense. I guess you mean a sharpen mask.
  8. I love Vegemite. It has to be on my breafast table. BTW, my wife is Australian.
  9. I concur, but this is, because X-Plane automatically reduces the simrate, when FPS are going below a ceratin level.
  10. Where are you living Renault? We have the hottest June here in Austria ever recorded. More than 37°C here in Innsbruck (LOWI) for the past couple of days and today still around 32°. I know how terrible global warming for mother earth is, but I can't help loving these high temperatures.
  11. No Sniper, not grumpy at all. At least not myself. I just think, if you have a buddy here on the forum whom you would like to congratulate to his/her birthday, a PM will do it. That's much more personal than doing it in public. IMO the many, many birthday posts which appear here in the forum lately even debase the value of a birthday wish. It is nothing special any more.
  12. Currently 6 of 12 unpinned posts on page 1 of this forum are dealing with birthdays.
