  1. Hi Ken, Funny you should mention that - my last approach was in a Lear 35A from Centennial - I knew we had bad weather coming in from the west but I was racing the storm with the Lear... The storm won - flew it to minimums - had to go missed and divert - exciting flight though... Went back to Pocatello to wait it out... Regards, Scott
  2. Hi Brad, I forget which ones in particular - there are beautiful WIP pictures in JV's 2018 road map thread - only time I saw them posted... They were well outside the covered ORBX regions on Alaska's western and northern coasts... We chatted about possibly adding Unakleet for the "Flying Wild Alaska" fans - at the time - which I'd still love to see... I believe Markus who posted above is the developer... Regards, Scott
  3. Hi Folks, Impressive to say the least and a bone for just about everyone... I'd hate to even attempt to calculate the man hours required for such a vast endeavor... Go ORBX... Just a couple questions from 2018 road map - KGEG and the Alaskan Airports are now officially DOA ? Beautiful shots - thanks for taking the time... Regards, Scott
  4. Hi Russel, Too funny - I just mentioned your KSUN project like an hour ago in another post here - and poof - here it is... Coincidence ? Looks absolutely stunning and I've been flying into the ORBX Freeware (Unsung Heroes) version for years... I was wondering when someone was going to this this resort destination... For me - I find resort locations - and the immersion it brings thinking about going to them - brings more to the sim... Please consider something East if the Mississippi for a future project... I know you did Saginaw - but it's a pretty obscure airport to compare sales figures with major resort destinations out west... I'm in on KSUN... Regards, Scott
  5. Hi Folks, I don't think any ATC program is "terrain aware" so they need some help in mountainous areas... Regards, Scott
  6. Hi Folks, Hmm - the little red dot I'm familiar with has nothing to do with aviation... Beautiful picture though ! Regards, Scott
  7. Hi Folks, What a superb set - looks great - and THAT's a long way from the ocean... I don't know what the sound set on the "Hoover" is like - but in the RW it's the oddest sounding jet I've ever heard - when the pilot backs off the throttle they make this "Whoooooooop - Whoooooooop" sound that is very distinctive and you know it's a Viking without even looking up... Regards, Scott
  8. Hi Folks, Yeah - I saw this a couple years ago - while I agree it would be a fantastic trip - I’m also torn over it - so many have sacrificed so much to achieve this goal - it seems to cheapen their sacrifice... Now some guy - theoretically - in a Hawaiian shirt, cargo shorts, and flip flops sipping a Margarita can summit with no effort and be home for dinner reservations - just one less frontier out there and there’re so few left... I guess I’m a romantic at heart... Regards, Scott
  9. Hi Folks, LOL - I've seen images of that wall a thousand times - never noticed the couple upstairs on the second floor before - too funny... Regards, Scott
  10. Hi Folks, Great pix... All we need is “the girl”... Regards, Scott
  11. Niiiice... Regards, Scott
  12. Hi Folks, Scary weather - nice pix... Here I am ! Regards, Scott
  13. Hi Andy, Nice - yeah - he does a great job with his videos... Wish we could get a TBM - with THAT panel instead of the unusable one provided by Carenado - 3rd party GPS is sorely needed... I've been following these guys as well - two ATC's from Chicago and their adventures in their C310 - love the plane - even if it is the stubby nose... Here's the start of their trip to the Bahamas: Regards, Scott
  14. Hi Folks, Stunning set - man - maybe I'll have to blow the cobwebs off that bird and take a look myself... Absaroka ? Anyone else watch that "Longmire" series ? Regards, Scott
  15. Hi Folks, Yeah - I think he mentioned the price of the satellite imagery for Hawaii just made it out of the question... Like others - I've had my fill of the "left coast"... There are fantastic destinations East of the Mississippi... But sticking to that island theme: Regards, Scott
