  1. I have already found 2 herds of Bison and I have been told there are still some more to find. These are very timid so we will have to creep up on them very quietly. 1. I think there are some up here, we shall approach them using the bushes for cover. 2. I don't think we were heard scrambling up the rocky hill side. 3. Very close now, I think they are just around here. 4. There, an M-4 Bison. 5. It must be a common sight here as the three bods by the Dakota don't appear too interested. 6. Ah, now I know why, one of
  2. I have been slowly re installing P3D over the last few weeks and I have now got to NA. All of the NA regions are now up and running and now it is time for the airports. I usually do one or two at a time and then have a short flight or circuit to make sure all is well. I am lucky that I have plenty of time and if there is a problem it can be traced back to the last couple of sceneries I have installed. That is the idea anyway. Here is a circuit from 05S Veronia. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. What a de
  3. A series of take off shots from recent flights. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11.
  4. Having a flight around some of the mountains on Catalina Island. 1. On the wrong side of the fence looking through the barbely wire. 2. Up and away in the usual uncontrolled fashion. No sign of the C-47 I put off the end of the runway last night 3. Better keep clear of the tall palms. 4. Now under control and admiring just how good the airport scenery is. 5. No items left off the hangar roof. 6. Tea for 2. 7. The beacon at Mount Banning. 8. An anonymous aerial just down the road. 9. An
  5. Installed NZNA,SI and the 2 airports today so time to see if NI is working ok. A short flight from Napier to Wellington. 1. Night time at Napier. 2. Getting ready for a flight to Wellington. 3. The Ngaruroro River near Mareakakaho 4. The Ruahine Forest Park. 5. Approaching Levin 6. At Peka Peka 7. Over Wellington Harbour 8. Shelley Bay ahead, no time to look at Wellington CBD. 9. Touch down at Wellington International 10. Don't need the jet way, we brought our own
  6. Here is the second part of my flight from Girona to Dusseldorf. The first part is here 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15.
  7. There are a group of German tourists waiting at Girona Airport. They have had a wonderful 2 weeks on the Costa Brava at Palamos but all good things must come to an end. My job is to fly them home to not so sunny Dusseldorf in my trusty Default 738 which is dressed in Condor colours. 1. There was a slight delay before take off as the album I was listening to had finished and I had to get the next one going. Cannot fly for such a long way without some music. 2. Above the Starboard wing tip is the town of Figures. I can still remember staying there in 19
  8. On Saturday July 19th 1975 I flew in my first turboprop aircraft. It was G-AXVG an HS.748 belonging to Dan Air. Justflight have just released their rendition of the 748 and one of the liveries depicts G-AXVG but in Skyways colours. I cannot resist adding to my hangar of British airliners. 1. Victor Gulf at EGHH Bournemouth 2. Lining up on RWY 26. 3. Flying past the old BAC works, the runway has been extended since 1975. 4. Over Moordown and Castle Lane West. 5. The Isle of Purbeck and Swanage. 6.
  9. Every time I fly in or out of LDDU I always head north. This time I will go south to one of the FTX Global Freeware airports in Greece. 1. Very cloudy skies don't make for viewing the scenery. 2. Played God and changed the weather to something more akin to the Adriatic in summer. 3. Dubrovnik, wanted to get a shot including the old town next but some clouds got in the way. 4. The Bojana River with Sasko Jezero(lake) in the background. 5. From a distance I think it looks quite nice but it is called Lake Ohrid! (just below the
  10. Just looking at the BBC News site and came across this small article about the old mines and industry in the Lusatia area in the SE part of GEN. http://www.bbc.com/news/in-pictures-37895781 Did a flight in the area a few weeks ago and here are a few shots of the area. 1. The Barwalder See, where Cyril went for a paddle. 2. Boxberg power station close to the Nochten Boulder Park. Looks like the park is just above the second cooling tower on the left. 3. Tagebau Riechwauld one of the operational Lignite mines in the area.
  11. I was lucky enough in 1991 to fly from Phuket to Sydney on a Lauda 763 and I must say their service ranked equal to the first class service I enjoy on SQ. Sadly the airline no longer exists in any form but I still have the memories of that wonderful flight. Being short on pilots they had to ask me to take one of their 737-800s on a charter from Klagenfurt to Schonefeld. 1. This is my first actual flight for 2 weeks using P3Dv2.4. I am slowly installing bits and pieces one at a time and testing each time in case there is a problem. Here we are lifting off from Kla
  12. I am now wide awake and have plenty of time to bring you the second part of my flight around Berlin. This means that I can identify the landmarks and not leave you guessing which place is of interest. 1. Pferdesportpark at Karlshorst below the chopper is Wasserwerlk Wahlheide. 2. BBW Schoneweide, a well detailed roundhouse and turntable. Looks like some sort of railway museum with the pics of steam locos on Google Earth. 3. Schoneweide Station 4. Treptower Park 5. O2 Arena. That was easy. 6. Some galleries
  13. Downloaded the Aerospace Fletcher FU-24 and it is a great piece of freeware. 1. Well appointed cockpit. 2. Taxying out at NZDN Dunedin, NZSI. 3. At Dunedin. 4. Off Cape Saunders. 5. Heading inland after passing over Omimi. 6. 7. Taieri George 8. Swinging round to land at NZ135. 9. With the strip next to Lamb Hill Road it is quite easy to find. 10. A fairly easy plane to land. Shall be flying it again when I get my FS back working.
  14. I am still amazed just how good OLC is. Time to take the Dove for a spin, here from Horovice in the Czech Republic to Cottbus in Germany. 1. Just posing for some photos before departure. 2. Starting the take off run, the Dove isn't the most spritely of aircraft. 3. Heading for Germany at Trubska. 4. Hwy 5 at Kravlav Dvur 5. The Elbe River and the town of Usti nad Labem. 6. The sprawling village of Goldbach and hwy 6, now in Bavaria. 7. Hoyerswerder and made it into GEN. 8. The Blunoer Sudsee at Bl
  15. It just so happens that a lovery Lufthansa livery became available the other day. As I am spending most of my flying time in the region these days I decided to do a flight from FIX Global freeware EBLG to EDDI. 1. A standard take off from Liege with not a Rouche in sight. Football followers will understand. 2. Have not flown the CRJ for a while but looks great in the LH colours. The Meuse River at Amay. 3. Still in the Wallonia region at Combain au Pont with the Ourthe and the smaller Ambleve Rivers . 4. Nearly into GEN land at Meinerzhag
  16. Off the coast out of Borkum South West Germany. 18.
  17. One of the great leaps forwards in the ORBX world was Global Vector, another part of adding that extra little bit of realism as well as aiding IFR flying. Here are a couple of comparison shots from Thailand. 1. Coming from the left is Motorway 9 (Kanchanaphisek Road) which joins the Asian Highway 1 by the starboard wingtip.. 2. On the ground at the junction with M9 and AH1. The colourful buildings are the Mahachulalongkorn Rachawitthayalai University. Just one mile down the road is another big junction and the traffic is horrendous. 3. 11 miles nor
  18. A mega set of shots from a flight starting at Nice and ending at Dusseldorf. 1. Ready to depart for Dusseldorf with a plane load of happy holidaymakers returning north. Really looking forwards to Maurizio's Cote d'Azur. 2. A last look at The Med. 3. Over Italy near Chianale 4. Over Moncenicio. 5. Looking down the Maurienne Valley in France. 6. Mont Blanc. 7. Mont Blanc, a bit warmer in the cabin. 8. Now in Switzerland passing Geneva. 9. Another change of heading and a better
  19. Finally made it to Berlin and I am lucky enough to have a Mosquito available to do a tour of the city and some of it's sights. I hope the power of the Merlins don't make me miss any of the fantastic scenery. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. Yeah, the deHavilland Mosquito would not have been any good for scrutinising the scenery with. The little chopper is ideal. So many landmarks have been reproduced here, what an amazing job has been done. Hope you have enjoyed looking
  20. A very short flight out of Wittmundhafen, just for the thrill. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. Such frivolity does use up the fuel very quickly.
  21. A Lufthansa (default) 738 takes to the skies to fly from ESSA to EDDT. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7 8. 9. 10. A prefect flight, even the ILS worked a treat. Hope you enjoy.
  22. One of my favourite planes is Virtualcol's Dash8 and today I decided to upgrade the sound with Skysong Soundworks PW 100. Just a few pics from an early morning take off from Plymouth to test out the new engines. 1. 2. 3. The Dash8 now sounds better, F-50 and ATRs to follow with better sounding engines. I think the 340 will have it's CT-7s replaced too!
  23. Forgotten about this Virtualcol plane which I have had for a long time but never flown. This was their attempt at having a plane where you had to follow the checklistfor it the systems to work. Unfortunately their guide is a total mess, bad English and all out of order. Look, no doubt their English translation would be much better than me trying to write instructions in Spanish, but this just does not come off. 1. We are ready to attempt a flight from Westerland Sylt EDXW to Hannover. 2. Followed the instructions for so far but like Old Blue Eyes, I a
  24. The final part of my Ruhr flight takes us to the Industrial Heart of Germany. 1. Leaving Hagen Hof Wahl in some promising weather. 2. Picking up the Ruhr again at Volmarstein. 3. Approaching Hessingen. 4. The treatment works at Hinsel. 5. Baldeneysee is the name given to the lake formed by a weir just down the river. 6. The large building is a conference centre called Essen Messe. 7. Every time I fly here I get buzzed by a plane coming or leaving Dusseldorf Airport. 8. Bruckenstimmung carries the
  25. First flight in something with a lot, I mean a lot of power. 38.
