  1. ... in a new toy... Taking off from Hamilton Island Looks like there must be bushfires in the area... The visibility suddenly dropped considerably. More or less cropped DX10s Cheers Mallard
  2. Here some more of the new old one Cropped DX10s Cheers Mallard PS - I'm having some issues with the self-shadowing, but otherwise it's a nice plane to fly!
  3. Finally got hold of the Grumman Duck and actually found a few minutes to give it a test run around Cairns More or less cropped but otherwise unchanged straight screenies... Cheers Mallard PS - still really tied up here, so here's a blanket-thank-you to all for uploading some beautiful screenies lately!
  4. An early flight in my new Cessna 207 was at Cairns. A short excursion to check out the feel of the plane and the autopilot. Also to look at some of the wonderful scenery and effects provided by ORBX and ASN 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10.
  5. Well Cairns after dark was not at all popular so a visit in the daylight hours was in order. The Martin Mars in the guise of Ansett Airlines was the mode of transport for a very short flight. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7.
  6. Until we arrive at Cairns that is. Decided to take an early evening REX SAAB 340 from Townsville to Cairns. Done very little night flying but I think next time I will find a more densely populated area to do a night excursion as there were very few lights on the way. 1. Ready for the off at Townsville 2. Taking off away from the town. 3. 4. 5. 6. Innisfail 7. Now approaching the lights of Cairns. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12 13.
  7. Well - I'm glad I don't have any explosives on board of this Toll Bell... Heading from Cairns to Atherton Airport up on the Atherton Tablelands More or less cropped Cheers Mallard PS - of course the title should read "for" - not "fro"...
  8. This 737-200 is a little far from home but I would say that orange livery suits the tropics more than it suits Germany Cheers, Gav
  9. Honest! I had no idea about Gavin's flight! Cropped DX10s Cheers Mallard
  10. Well I did this post yesterday but got the dreaded error 522 message and lost it all One of the aircraft I like the most is the 757, not a common sight in my part of this planet. Indeed I did not see one in RL until 1993 and then only a quick glimpse of a China Southern one at Don Mueang. Decided to buy the QW rendition of this wonderful airliner for P3D but something went horribly wrong installing it and I had to do a total reinstall a few weeks ago. So this along with the Lear Jet prompted me to try FSX again for those planes and airports that don't like P3D. Here goes for my
  11. I brought the Lionheart Lear Jet 24 a few weeks ago but had problems with it on P3D. So as I also have a swag of aircraft and some scenery which is incompatible with P3D I decided to......shock horror..... re install FSX with the scenery that worked without problems. So Australia has been installed along with Cairns and the LJ24. My first trial with the resurrected FSX and the Lear Jet went well. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. Early days yet with a lot of fine tuning to do as well as things like REX and of course ORBX to be added. Fingers crossed that FSX beha
  12. It's the Monsoon Season in Cairns at the moment. Whilst we are close to drought conditions here in Victoria the amount of rainfall in this part of the world is staggering. The average rainfall for this part of Oz for Jan and Feb is almost 850mm. The wettest day this year was last Sunday with 247mm with 678mm for the year so far. So it is no surprise then that a dawn departure in a Lockheed C-69 would be in the rain. 1. 2. 3. 5. 4. 6 7. 8. 9. 10.
  13. First thing I did after getting back from a week of Ireland was to download the "new" Cairns and take a... well... not so quick spin around the place in Sunny. Still a beauty! But I think I'll have to go explore during the more brighter hours of the day Cheers Mallard
  14. Just a few shots of some of the flights I have made this week end. Been based at Cairns and the weather has been so wet. 1. 2. My beloved REX SAAB on it's way to Townsville. 3. 4. This time a flight to Jacksons 5. Great fun flying to Mareeba in this inclement weather. 6. Hope you have all had an enjoyable week end and take care this coming week. It's not long to Friday
  15. Good to be able to fly around Cairns again thanks to the release of the triple installer. So here we are on a steamy tropical morning loitering around YBCS with the intention of sharing with you this fantastic ORBX scenery..........honest officer 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. Nearly time for the football season here in Oz. Just passing over Collingwood's Queensland training facility. If you look closely you can see some of their players floating around 14. 15.
  16. Hi, do I see it right that YBCS has received an update today - which is for a German box customer like me accessible only through purchase of a cross-grade-license (which is useless for me, as I stay with FSX)? This would be the first time in Orbx history that updating requires additional payment. I hope this is a misunderstanding by me...
  17. Charter flight,taking some FLIFO miners off to Mt Isa. Stu
  18. G'day All, After a little bit of R&R following the release of Palm Springs, I've been getting stuck into service-pack-mode, and in particular bringing up some of my titles to native P3Dv2 standard with some much-appreciated assistance from Graham Eccleston. I am currently working on three Service Packs/Triple Installers at the moment, and am delighted to show off a few screens for two of these, Broome International and Cairns International airports for FTX AU. To be perfectly honest, these are two of my all-time favourite projects to work on, and it's been great fun to add full P3D2 co
  19. Some pics from a flight from Cairns to Broome. I guess the Cairnserites wanted to get away from the rest of the mob coming up for the long weekend Loading all the trimmings for a good barbie A bit of cloud en route... ...soon gave away to the usual clear skies and great visibility Destination in sight Easy does it! Yes - I AM coming in to park here... What do you mean "too big"!?! I fit, don't I? Cropped DX10s Cheers Mallard
  20. Which I could erase, I couldn't make a choice . . . Thanks for viewing
  21. Not quite in it's home habitat, but I couldn't pass up my favourite colour scheme on the 707 for a trip down to Cairns from Port Moresby (with a sneaky bypass of Murray Island along the way!). Cheers, Jarrad
  22. Right - so after the first leg I changed planes in Manila. On to Port Moresby in another classic Global kicking in and doing it's thing The last of the Philippines Here we're already over the Bird's Head-like peninsula in north-western Irian Jaya. The two lakes are Giji and Gida The Baliem Valley I did forget that I was travelling three time-zones east - so evening was kicking in really fast You can just about make out the peak of Mount Bosavia in the background A few minutes later it was pitch dark. So no pics of the arr
  23. ...for my copy of Palm Springs to complete downloading I thought I might share some pics from another one of Jarrad's beauties (and my virtual "home"): Cairns - here with the 30-m mesh Heading towards Kuranda And on in to Mareeba Cropped straight DX10s with SweetFX Cheers Mallard
  24. After the cat - now the beaver Heading for the first stop at Green Island Scenic flight Back over Green Island Mainland Whoops - the tide is out. Don't want to land on the mudflats... Made it! Cropped and reduced, but otherwise straight DX10 pics with SweetFX Cheers Mallard
