  1. An overview of Port Moresby (AYPY), Not really the good gate for that plane but just for looking it. Have a good flight and happy new year for all the ORBX simmers
  2. Since Ozjet ran this service between Brisbane and Port Moresby I thought I'd give it a try Brisbane departure at 9:15 a.m. Passing over Caloundra... ...and Hervey Bay (a bit fuzzy - but I was at 20,000 feet) Leaving the Australian coast behind Jacksons International well in sight More or less cropped DX10s. Cheers Mallard
  3. Weather is getting worse here in Germany, so I needed a different perspective...
  4. Thought I would celebrate post #7777 with shots of my favourite modern airliner the 777. 1. Leaving PANC at Anchorage AK. 2. 3. Avoiding the mountains at PAVD Valdez. 4. 5. Now the tropics at AYPY Jacksons International 6. 7. Finally NSTU Pago Pago. 8.
  5. Looking at Gerold's wonderful flight from NSTU to AYPY reminded me of a flight I did a few weeks ago. Like Gerold I chose the Air New Zealand Boeing 777 but mine was the Captain Sim 300. An early morning departure from AYPY to NZAA a distance of over 2600 miles. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12.
  6. Getting ready in the early morning at American Samoa. I doubt there is a RL scheduled connection on this route, but ANZ offered a bit of comfort today for the interested simmer. Ready to taxi, engines running. Maybe I accidently turn the PeopleFlow into PeopleMelt? OK, all went well. No claims. Turning north out of the easterly take-off. Westbound to the sea. To plenty of sea. Cut. Many hours later, already descending over Papua New Guinea. FSGRW doesn´t have boring clouds either, Rockliffe! Downwind, please follow the ATC instructions... Always a pleasure to see such great airports.
  7. Following the unexpected task http://www.orbxsystems.com/forum/topic/102748-goroka-air-services-part-1/I kept on bringing the mechanics around the Isle. We followed the trail, ... ... over Isurava (that runway is a bit short even for the Twotter), ... ... naturally stopping at the hub in Kokoda. Where some work needs to be done. Followed the river eastwards ´til the waterfall. Stopped, inspected the village (no mover found !), and turned, to get this beautiful view. Heading out of the valley again... ... to Girua. Good business for the mover service. A little plane change, and back we go to Jacksons... Kokoda... The bush strips in bird´s view... A classic scenery. Made with passion, I am sure. Sorry for so many pics. I could not select less...
  8. Early morning, Goroka Air is heading out of Jacksons to pick up some technicians in Menari. Limited view into the valleys... ...but finally a gap between the clouds. A nice place for garden lovers... ... but the mechanic I picked up in Menari asked me to get some spare parts in Kagi. Spare parts? In this remote place? What the hxxx are they willing to repair? Ah, here in Efogi they revealed their business...: ... Lawn mover maintenance! Unfortunately one passenger wanted to be dropped off for hiking in Milei - quite limited visibility... ... and even with visibility it ain´t easy. Stopped with not much room left. Climbing out is not much better, ... ... just like the intermediate stop in Boridi. The next mechanical task south of the ridge: Myola. To be continued. But what are they doing in this overwhelming nature with all these movers? Does anyone attempt to get English lawn here? Questions, questions...
  9. This Dash 8 is leaving Jackson International on it's way to Singapore. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. Would like to fly more but it's bed time! Hope you enjoy the shots. All visible trees FTX HD Trees, weather by REX Texture Direct 4 and ASN.

  13. The video is more about the IRIS Beechcraft T-6 Texan II, but you clearly see the quality of the ORBX scenery. It's a tutorial/summary I made for this airplane this weekend. Flying around ORBX - AYPY Jacksons International Airport https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yrSZokYOXaQ
  14. FSX acc + DX10 (Steves Fix) ORBX Global + Vector + FS:Pilots Global mesh 2010, AYPY and Kakoda trail Aerosoft Twin Otter X Today we fly Southwest Air Twotter with a small group to Kagi (4926') and Efogi (3933') both are some 30nm NE of Port Moresby (AYPY) and are villages on the Kakoda trail in the Central Highlands. 1. ^ Taxing at Port Moresby 2. ^ Climbing NE out of the Airport 3. ^ Short finals at Kagi 4. ^ A quick turn around on the small flat section at the top of the Airstrip 5. ^ And away again.

  15. Just a very quick look at the HD trees on a flight from Port Moresby up the Kokoda Trail... FIFO at Manapi Approaching Timkenumo Cropped DX10s Cheers Mallard
  16. Well - after Ken's remarks in my Foul paradise set I went looking - and found that I did indeed have the OZx PNG mesh on a higher priority than the Holgermesh. Deactivated that and revisited some of the strips... With my trusted Sunny (who in the real world was actually based in PNG for quite a while) After the departure from Kokoda Gaining altitude to cross the mountains in one piece First strip "TimKenUmo": Second one - Kagi: Third one - Manap(r?)i: (That was the one with the washing in the rain) And on to Jacksons Intl are the colours better now, Ken & Tim? My SweetFx settings are heavily dependent on time of day and intensity of the sunshine. Here - as opposed to the Foul paradise set - I had midday and clear skies. And that leads to the colours appearing quite a bit more saturated... Cheers Mallard
  17. Some from a flight from Bali/Denpasar in Indonesia to Port Moresby Cropped DX10s Cheers Mallard
  18. Took off from AYPY a couple of weeks ago on a flight to AYMH Mount Hagen. http://www.orbxsystems.com/forum/topic/90882-jackson-5-times-two-plus-one/ I got a little side tracked and forgot to post the rest of the flight. Glad you waited and there is more..... below 12. 13. 14. 15. 16. 17. 18. 19. 20. 21. 22. 23. But wait there's more. Us older folks in Australia will remember Tim Shaw's ads 20 years ago. https://www.youtube.com/watch?x-yt-cl=84503534&x-yt-ts=1421914688&v=iiATDMHU7gc&list=PLDE1E977AB4865CB9 Thinking now as the Medivac chopper just flew over heading north. Pitch black 4.40 on the morning means someone is in big trouble. Hope all ends OK for them.
  19. Brought AYPY in the sales and so happy, as not only enjoying getting into all kinds of strife on the Kokoda Trail but also exploring some of the breathtaking scenery to be had in other parts of PNG. Here are eleven (for those whose maths isn't up to scratch) shots departing from AYPY Jacksons International. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. Spot the inbound Dash-8 . But wait there's more!!! I shall post the rest of this flight at a later date.
  20. Feeling a bit thirsty I deicided to head over to Garaina , which is about 80 miles NW of Kokoda. I hear there is a tea plantation there so I thought I would check it out. 1. Leaving behind the hikers who have come to do the Trail. 2. Taking off from Kokoda Airport. 3. 4. Appears to be very little habitation on our route. Hope the fan keeps turning! 5. Climbing to get over some mountains ahead. 6. Cannot find the names of many features on Google Earth. 7. In the Mount Albert Edward area. 8. Starting our descent to Garaina. 9. The strip is under the Cessna. 10. 11. Nothing that looks like a plantation here. 12. 13. There was a photo of the plantation in 1969 on Google Earth. Looking at the satellite view it looks to have been abandoned long ago although there is a small community there. Garaina does not even come up with a Yahoo search.
  21. Thoroughly enjoyed my first flight in PNG yesterday so I thought I would carry on from Manari and head over the Owen Stanleys to Popondetta. Wasn't sure if the Seneca would get off the ground in time so only 40% fuel. 1. 2. Those trees look mighty tall. 3. Good, cleared the trees and climbing away to gain some height for crossing the mountains. 4. With a relatively light load the Seneca climbs really well. 5. You can just make out Meili strip. 6. 7. Now at 12000ft, you can almost hear the Seneca sigh with relief as we level out. 8. Now starting a slow descent towards Popondetta. 9. Skirting the clouds in case there is something nasty in there. 10. AYKO Kokoda is below the Piper's nose. 11. 12. 13. Passing Mount Lamington. 14. Coming in to rwy 03. 15. 16. 17. Parked up at the terminal. Another very enjoyable flight in PNG, many thanks to the ORBX team for this wonderful scenery. New Guinea is the worlds second largest Island so there is plenty to explore.
  22. What intended to be a flight from Manari to Efogi in PNG ended up in me getting totally lost. In trying to fly over some high ground I headed off in the wrong direction. 1. Nice weather at Manari. 2. 3. Gaining height as there is some high ground ahead. 4. Had to turn around and climb even more. 5. I think I am high enough to have another go. The weather had deteriorated very rapidly though. 6. Made it but gave the birds sitting in the trees a scare. 7. Just realised I am lost so according to my map(Google Earth) I have to head west. 8. Just seen this strip before the weather finally closed in. 9. One orbit to lose some height. A few minutes ago I was struggling to gain height. 10. Can see the runway through the gloom. 11. Cannot believe, runway ahead, everything perfect. 12. Down and a very steep runway means a quick stop. 13. Now stuck. Won't roll back any more and so steep the Jabiru won't go forwards. Ended flight before finding out where I actually was. What great fun this was though, getting lost and then finding the strip on the mountain side. Will be back for more tomorrow and one day I hope I will find out which strip I landed on.
  23. I have not brought any new add ons since last year , so I thought I had better remedy this unfortunate situation and buy something before the ORBX sale ends. Never flown in PNG so I thought AYPY Jacksons Airport would be a great choice. Looks like top value too with the usual excellent detail at Jacksons International as well as a heap of bush strips. This flight started out as a chance to take a few shots above AYPY but I then decided to go and try out a bush strip. I have chosen a suitable bush basher , namely the Carenado PA-34 , which I was testing after loading it onto P3D. 1.A few shots above AYPY before heading east and looking for a strip. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6.Decided to head for Manari which appears to have a reasonable length of grass. 7.Doesn't look very long from up here though. 8.Nor there. 9.Time to drop everything and slow down before making a very tight 180. 10.Managed to avoid the mountain. 11.Almost there. 12.Surprised myself with the landing, a little left of centre but down and stopped. 13.Past the happy campers. 14.Parked up in the lush grass and time for a rest. Very impressed with AYPY. Another great place to fly.
  24. Goroka Air Services P2-MRN, based at AYGA - Goroka airport, Papua New Guinea, circa 1998 Repaint link here http://meatyskins.blogspot.com.au/ Enjoy
  25. Part 1: It ain´t too easy to start out of EMO either... ... but the flight along Kumusi river to Girua is now pretty pretty (thanks to the freeware add-on...): Part 2: Out of Girua with the adequate commercial service... ... over Kokoda ... ... into Port Moresby, ... ... Jacksons: A DC-3 would also be a great choice here, maybe next time...
