  1. Probably the airfield in Efogi needs to be cleaned up in the next days ... .
  2. Just tried the two brilliant new paints by Jankees The first two are from a flight from Mendi past Mout Bosavi And the next ones are from Port Moresby to Manari. According to the information supplied with the paint this plane actually did fly in PNG for a while... Starting the search for the strip Oops - I don't think I'll make it down this time around Approach. Manari can just about be made out over the right wing tip Nice and easy does it! OK - I'll be honest - I did a bit of landscaping and municipal rearangement (i.e. I didn't manage to stop in time and ended up in a few huts) but the locals were friendly enough and helped pull the plane back onto the strip . Cropped DX10s Cheers Mallard
  3. 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
  4. Didn't realise that the paint was already available... But I grabbed it earlier from over at OZx and went for a spin around Emo Mission and then onward to Port Moresby Bush flyer style landing Didn't even bother switching off the engine Somewhere over PNG I originally had intended on taking in some of the Kokoda Trail strips, but that plan was foiled by the weather So after circling the area for about half an hour I decided on continuing onward to Port Moresby Just a quickie from the offfice And agian: a Bush flyer style landing Parked at the (what with all the broken windows rather derelict looking) old terminal Cropped DX10s Thanks a lot for this brilliant paint, Frank! Cheers Mallard
  5. 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 arrival at AYPY... Bright and early the next day the final leg to Cairns was done with a 727 And here - just about an hour later - the Barrier Reef Some more or less cropped DX10s with SweetFX. If you're wondering about the ground textures in PNG - I chose Oceania in FTX central before departing from Port Moresby. The pics of Irian Jaya / PNG on the flight from the Philippines is "pure" Global Cheers Mallard
  6. In contrast to my recent post of the failed landing in Efogi, the rest of the flight (which was a return to PNG after some months of OpenLC_EU-flying) was a pleasure. Leaving Port Moresby ... ... to Launumu. The short jump to Kagi went well... But the attempt to drop some boxes in Efogi caused some major repairs... . At least, this works easy in the sim. I thought I better leave the bushstrip area... ... follow the trail to Isurava ... ... followed by a relaxing landing in a relatively big & easy airfield. Hope the barbie is ready?! OK, time to put the newspapers away, we are starting again. Following Kumusi river until the well-known waterfall appears to the left, ... ... then a quick turn to the right, followed by a fast descent ... ... and then a challenge I encounter at home only too often: finding a free parking lot. At last. A nice new challenge in this wonderful bushflying playground, thanks Ken & Tim!
  7. ...not that I noticed anything wrong with the original instal - but it's nice to know that an eye is being kept on this great pack Just went for a quick flight around Port Moresby More or less cropped DX10s with SweetFX Cheers Mallard
  8. Ken mentioned two plane wrecks at Emo - so I set out in something that would give me the chance of actually checking out the area: my trusty Squirrel Coming to the valley - time to keep the eyes peeled So far not much... Waidaminnit! Got one! Yep, certainly is a wreck... Ok - I looked and looked, but did not find the second one... Anyway - the fuel was starting to get low, so it was time to head back to Jacksons The Sirinumu Dam (in the background) always makes for a good reference point when making for Port Moresby from the Kokoda area And safely back home - will have to check for the second wreck some other time... Cropped DX10s. Cheers Mallard PS - what I did find were the three Daks peppered around Port Moresby The one to the east of the airport The one at More-Tobo Road leading to the terminals And the one at the Airways Hotel All three which are actually there in real life...

  10. leaving AYPY... Ignor the paint... non extened version, so I can't use Tim's png scheme.
  11. Cranked up the trusty old Cargomaster and headed to Kokoda Quick stop-over at Manapi Dropped off the pack of sugar for the campsite cookie and preparing to head on to the first main destination of the day. Kokoda approach I actually did land there - here's one from the departure for the next leg: Emo Mission Finals Unloading And now for the final leg back to Port Moresby. Cropped straight DX10s Cheers Mallard
  12. Papua of course!

  13. Thanks a lot for the Emo Mission, Tim & Ken! I had already set off on a little trip from Port Moresby attempting to find some of the Kokoda strips... Probably should have called ahead to get a weather report Not a chance of finding anything in that soup, so I ended up In Kokoda itself... (a bit frustrated, if I may say so) Actually that was going to be my screenie-set. But then I logged on to the FTX site and saw the announcement that Emo Mission had been released! *Joy!* So "bright and early next day" I took off from Kokoda and went exploring Great approach! The sloped runway is quite a challenge - but almost makes for an aircraft-carrier like ramp at takeoff Looped the loop and passed over the strip before heading back to Port Moresby Yep - it's an "N"-reg plane, but it belonges to MAF Cropped DX10s Cheers Mallard
  14. Welcome to Papua New Guinea! So we had to transport four people today, two needed to go to Kokoda, and the other two to Emo Mission. Since our C206 needed to be serviced, we took the faithful Skywagon. At company hangar at Jacksons Airport And off we go! Take off from Port Moresby A second before touchdown at Kokoda Field Entering the Emo Mission valley A quick look at the beautiful waterfall before making a sharp turn to the right to line up with the strip at Emo Mission Watch your speed, you don't want to bump all over the place! Welcome home! Emo Mission is peaceful, I will have a cup of coffee before heading back to Port Moresby
  15. Showing off some more of the talented Talair-repaint Cropped DX10s Cheers Mallard
  16. Well - I finally found the monument on the Kokoda Trail... It wasn't here Nor here, either I was about to give up when I suddenly discovered it Probably won't be allowed to retrun, though - after all that dust I kicked up Back to Kokoda ...and off for a cup of coffee with the fellas in the background Then I hitched a ride with a mate back to Port Moresby Yeah, right, smarta%& - I know where it is now... Cropped DX10s Cheers Mallard

If you wish to support me and ken's 'pacific island' conquests, pick up the 30+ airstrip PNG bush 'Experience' here: https://www.fullterrain.com/product/ftxgaypy
  19. ...he's my chopper... *groan* Heading towards the trail Passing one of the strips I was actually looking for the chopper memorial - but the weather was just too lousy with the clouds hanging right among the tips of the mountains This is what I saw most of the time Found the village south of Kokoda - but no helipad Ah, stuff it - I'll just have to try again after the weather gets better. Might as well have a coffee at Kokoda Slightly cropped DX10s Cheers Mallard
  20. After the amazing flight experience in PNG I took the (appropriate) jetliner to get back down under: A last view to Port Moresby... ... and leaving the tropical clouds behind. I have to thank Jon Murchinson for this great livery again... ... looks like my paxes, crew and I will need a sundowner soon: Approaching Cairns, ... ... downwind over the Barron river ... ... and parked to close this flight. Hybrid mode works nearly perfect - nearly, as I had some trouble with the runway lights at YBCS (I will test it with full Oceania mode and eventually place a request):

  24. ... cocodi, cocoda. If you see the German translation you know where the title of this post leads to: http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Der_Hahn_ist_tot_(Kanon) Starting in the morning in hazy Girua... ... and following the best navigation aid here: The road to Kokoda. At least there is some visibility at Kokoda valley: Ah, this looks like an airstrip! On short final after the 270° turn... ... and parked. Once again with the newspaper, but surrounded by backpackers that seem to be willing to take the easy way across the mountains: By air. We will see if this really is an easy way...
