  1. Outside shots It sure has been fun visiting awesome PNG bush strips in the DO 228. Greg
  2. Let's try, in my opinion, the best ever Bush plane, the Pilatus PC-6 Turbo Porter Look at the slope of that "runway" Down with an easy roll out. Outside views It just looked like I was going in the trees Another good shot of the stripe's slope. Down Stopped The departure was uneventful. The PC-6 made it look easy. Let's try the Kodiak next. Greg
  3. The DO 228 made it in and stopped. with the help of the natives we got it turned around and poised for take off. Unfortunately, I did not make it. We got off the ground but could not clear the trees at the end of the runway. This is a very difficult strip. It is in a steep valley with trees blocking the end of the short runway. I think this is Pilatus PC-6 Turbo Porter country.... But that is an other post, Greg
  4. I took these a couple of days ago before updating the DO 228. I am trying for a clean sweep of the PNG bush strips. Outside views Next Milie Greg
  5. Let's try something a little bigger but also made for the bush.

Thanks to Ken and Tim for creating such outstanding realistic scenery! Family tomorrow Striped Bass fishing Monday and Tuesday, I will try to get back to finish the AYPY strips on Wednesday. Greg

  13. Just love this C-17, a big plane but so easy to fly for me. 1. Getting ready to depart from AYPY. 2. Some breathtaking scenery coming up with a flight planned across the mountains. 3. With a light fuel load and minimal freight on board the C-17 climbs like.....er well a C-17. 4. Heading away from Port Moresby in the Karema area. 5. In the mountains near Kone. 6. Passing over a familiar place, TAP Tapini. 7. Close to Tawuni. 8. Beating up TAP, giving the locals a show. Must be a change for them to see a big plane like this close up. 9. Show over, a chance to throw the C-17 around a bit. 10. Saying good bye to Tapini. Love flying around PNG, with some of the best scenery anywhere on the planet. Hope you enjoyed the shots.

  15. The whole PNG area is one I haven't played in much, so thought I'd have a look. Took off from AYPY and thought I'd head off towards Kokoda. Then it was time to do various domestic stuff so I left the machine, but I guess I hit the wrong key and didn't actually pause the sim before I minimised it. Came back a couple of hours later and it's all blue everywhere (above, below and every direction). Zoomed out on the G1000 and saw a big lump of land way over where and adjusted to head for what turns out to be New Britain. Landfall and heading NNW, and spot an airport on the display so head on in. And eventually, there ahead of me is AYTK, Rabaul Airport - Parked up and had a look around - Then I remembered I still had to feed the cats so I had to rush off to get back. I was really very impressed with this little landing strip/airport. I looked it up on Google Earth and it's pretty much spot on. I saved this flight and will definitely explore this area a bit more - looks like fun and the KMZ file shows all sorts of out of the way strips to explore. It's like I always feel with this stuff - there's too much out there! How's a poor boy ever going to get to explore it all?
  16. Leaving the PNG playgrounds ... ... to reach Queensland. In ugly rain! If it is so wet, maybe this is the season to find Barron Falls? The gorge is there. But the river is still small... . Have to check it another time again.
  17. After practicing with the C185, I felt prepared for transporting a little bit more freight / hikers with the Twotter. Entering the playground... ... to Ononge, ... ... next to the colleague in Woitape, ... ... leaving Fane. Not really an area for a quick walking tour. Ready to circle down to Tapini. Ononge, again (I forgot the lawn mover there...). Oh, oh, Ononge is a bit tricky... Finally, Yongai. The curved approach really is a challenge to me... ;-( ... before resting in Kokoda "international", so I call it, as you can land totally relaxed there. Can you see Isurava below? And the entire playground along the Kokoda track? But I skip them all now, and head back to Jacksons... Survived with only neglectable virtual damage. A good day for a bushflying amateur... ;-)
  18. An early start at Kokoda before setting off for Tapini. 17.
  19. Out of Jacksons... ... into the mountains. Maybe "real weather" was not such a good idea... ... so after landing in Ononge I changed to Orbx weather 2. Going on to Woitape (a relief to land after that first one)... ... and Fane. With GoogleEarth proving the scenery is authentic. Great to see, after the thrilling flights.
  20. Out of Frankfurt to Mumbai, ... showing a lack of light in the simulation over Tehran... ... and also over Mumbai. Can you even see the plane? Switch the light on, please! And on we go, towards Bangkok. Next leg: The short hop to Singapore. Well suited for a bigger plane, I think. And the final part: Equator crossing... ... hmm, not to good visibility on the approach... ... but finally it gets better! What a nice view. And the right place to change for some smaller equipment... Sorry for the high number of pics. But it was quite a way to go!
  21. FSX Medivac flight from Kokoda. PNG to Jacksons, PNG in a Quest Kodiak flying into airstrips created by Orbx's developers into a package called AYPY. Included in the Jackson's International Airport are 10 remote strips into the bush country.
  22. Big job flying a bunch of cargo up to the village of Woitape. This was going to be a two plane shuttle and I was going to flying the big crate in P2-KSM while the rest was being flown up in P2-KSI. The flight started just before the crack of dawn trying to get up there before the heat of the day added to the planes performance. On the ground it was already 80F and Im sure there was plenty of low clouds and fog up in the valleys yet to burn off. Found an opening after circling the field and made a nice slow approach into land. KSI was already on the ground and starting to unload the plane. A MAF crew was also there helping coordinate the delivery. Attached is the Google Earth file for the flight from the Twin Otter Flight Recorder. aypy wtp.kml
  23. Looking at a post by Republic DC-9 tonight and there is the Alabeo Aztec. I had heard this was on the way but did not realise it had been released. About time there was a Piper Aztec available in FSX and P3D. This first flight is from AYPY to Kokoda. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. Yet another beautiful aircraft and Moctezuma got his revenge on me by making me fork out nearly AU$50 for this, but you can't take it with you can you?
  24. Re installed the Otter today after reading a post on how to make it closer on the monitor while keeping the background in focus. Simple just press Ctrl + or -. So started up, nah too smooth a sounding engine. Listened on good old YouTube and decided to fit it with the IRIS soundworks P&WR-2800. If you don't mind umpire that sounds way better! SO off from Jacksons to find one of those little bush strips up in the mountains. 1. Setting off for Manari with cargo and passengers. 2. I haven't told them I have never tried landing this beastie before. 3. Good thing there are plenty of barf bags, it is very lumpy up here. 4. Sunrise, just hope we are all alive to see the sunset tonight. 5. Manari, shall try a landing from the south. 6. Too steep an approach and as I shall find out soon not the way to do it. 7. 8. A very tight turn and now losing height. 9. 10. Almost there and keeping an eye on the speed and height. 11. Plopped it into the long grass a tad short. 12. Going uphill, definitely my first attempt would not have been a good idea. 14. Parked up and ready for the next flight. I enjoyed that immensely, a wonderful plane and excellent scenery. Always forget to come to PNG but glad I made it today.
