    It has been some days since you have been showing us around, Jean Marc. And perfect as ever: Plane, livery, photo combination - and you have found a fantastic example of OLC Africa once again.

    That product is absolutely outstanding.

    indeed thank you very much Gerold :) 

    Plenty of other african places to show nextly... need to make their posts but I am quite busy by work to be finished before holidays (but hum this year ... to go where ? ???)  and by plane repaints too ... never enough time O0

    Great set Jean Marc, another educational hit!

    many thanks Jack :) beautiful place isn't it ? O0 desert and mountains, and a fully different way of life still like 200 years old with buffles & donkeys for agricultural process...but very poor people...

     

    Again a few one on the way to Tombouctou

    Very interesting trip Jean Marc, some great shots

    The Culture man

    Is that map an application?

    Can it be displayed while flying on the screen a bit minimized?

    Glad you took pleasure with the post Carlos. I love to use LittleNavMap (using the opentopomap layer for great relief details) - easy to use... but not with a minimized screen you have to pause and watch the map behind the p3d4 screen

     

    here is a link for this great freeware : https://albar965.github.io/littlenavmapscreens.html

    Super shots!!!!!!!!!  Looks like a good place to fly around and look at the scenery.

    thank you John :) it is a really pleasant place to fly at low altitude and slowly.

     

    I spent a night in this village in 1998, arriving from the Dogon country and going to Gao (and next upto Tombouctou...) ... amazing trip on the roof of heavy loaded trucks (no bus) and so slowly...20 mph no more average speed ... At present it seems so dangereous to travel all around with the recent terrorism attacks ... poor people, the life was already so difficult and to add such terrors events ...>:(

  4. Mali - Hombori hills between Mopti and Gao, north of Burkina Faso

     

    This place at the gate to the Sahara desert is a really beautiful place to fly, with great hills formation (famous Fatma Hand, top for climbers), various and scenic ground details thanks to Open LC Africa, ... It is close to the Dogon country and its rich culture ...

    ( I've been by there 20 years ago ... it was a safe time ...it seems really dangereous at present to travel in this area with the Jihadist Attack :( )

     

    To fly slowly and not too high all around was a real pleasure !  Orbx teams really did a great job !

     

    (This is a new AH Miles Hawk Speed6 repaint to fly over Burkina Faso & Mali - it will be uploaded nextly at avsim :))

    Here is a map of that place

    (yes it was a long and sinuous flight path ... why a straight line when the place is beautiful ...B) )

     

    Happy flights in Africa :) 

     

    PS : Great book to read about the place, people and history : Amkoullel the Fula Child by the grand Hampate Ba

    , you can urge the Chinese government to issue a better landscape in the next 5 years plan by taking part in the poll - which I believe you already did. 

    Sure I did for à long time ... Positive for any kind of open LC for Asia O0
