  1. ...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
  2.

  5. Clearance? What clearance?! So I will follow the road from Tari... Thanks to all of you, it is a pleasure to spend time here on this forum (and to collect inspirations).
  6. ... 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...
  7. MAF P2-MFU Twin Otter out of Mt Hagen, PNG Link to repaint: http://forum.aerosoft.com/index.php?/files/file/2881-aerosoft-twin-otter-x-p2-mfu-mission-aviation-fellowship/ http://aussiex.org/forum/index.php?/files/file/4916-aerosoft-twin-otter-x-p2-mfu-mission-aviation-fellowship/
  8. So here we are, with the undoubted highlight of my PNG tour: The Kokoda bushstrip tour. As moonman pointed out, I should have enough fresh T-shirts in this humid region, so I was looking for some in this area ... First stop: Bodinumo. These details add to the experience... 2nd: Boridi. 3rd: Milei. Really my hardest task to slow down here. 4th is a relatively easy one: Timkenumo. 5th stop: Kagi. Not too hard with this plane either. 6th one: Launumu. 7th is Efogi. Looks easy, but I always slipped quickly to the west, be it landing or start - tricky! Efogi from above... ... and Manari (#8 ): I think this was also in Manari, but I am not sure what this bloke wants to do there - right next to this airport´s busy runway! Peacefully followed the Kokoda track further, ... ... to Port Moresby ... ... and the first relaxed landing today. Unfortunately I did not pay enough attention on the T-shirts to capture, so I have a good excuse to do the tour again. And I will optimize the sequence of airstrips before I try it with bigger loading capacity... Tim & Ken, this playfield is amazing. In a couple of minutes so many challenging approaches, landings and take-offs, coupled with amazing scenery details - and all on the basis of RL flights, not arcade-like imagination - great work, or was it rather passion? Thanks.
  9. OK, let´s go up the hills from Kokoda - but first let me dry the shirts of the backpackers here ... First stop: Isurava. I am proud this landing worked on the first trial, though surrounded by trees. I´ll need to come back with our friend Bob, just to check the sounds of this amazing place. And I am sure there will be a day & time when the sun sets directly in the axis of this monument... Following the Kokoda track southwards... that looks like an abandoned airstrip to the right (near the village of Abuari) - which needs to be checked with a fixed wing AC sooner... Here we are at the pleasuredome. Count the airstrips in the picture, I am sure I did not catch them all... Off to Myola, for the necessary equipment change. To be continued...
  10. From Mendi I crossed PNG´s central mountains, with rainforest up to nearly 11.000 ft... ... and made an intermediate stop in Wapenamanda, to read some newspapers and become updated. Then I took the Southwest Air services to Madang... ... where another beautiful Twotter was waiting for me. OK, it is static... Thus I hired on the Air Niugini vintage plane ... ... took a view of Long Island, ... ... with Crater Lake ... ... before I crossed the mountains to Nadzab. Another nicely upgraded PNG airfield! I was late in the day, so it was all rainy on the way to Girua. And of course I was not brave enough to fly southwards from here without visibility. So I had to do something else for the rest of the day...
  11. After receiving clearance in Tari ( http://www.orbxsystems.com/forum/topic/84825-you-have-clearance-my-post-4k/ ) I headed slowly eastwards, until the airstrip of Mendi came in sight: Looked so interesting, that I had to change my plans and landed there. I was a bit confused while rolling on the runway: There were some cars from an open road between the runway and the apron... : As a good German driver I did not wait for green traffic lights and crossed the street directly. But... who is checking the apron here? But the panoramic view of the rainforest pays for every confusion. I think I just need a day off & a cold one... So great to discover the details Ken & Tim have hidden here!
  12. ... the west of PNG. Taking off into a sunny morning from Daru... ... but quickly the humidity builds up some tropical haze... ... over Fly River, ... ... which I follow upwards to PNGs western border... ... to Kiunga airstrip. Yes, it is there! And - well equipped. Changing the airlines ... ... to follow this little navaid ... ... until some major obstacles appear. FSGRW still thinks it is humid and cloudy... ... while the rainforest builds up to more then 10.000 ft... On final to Tari. Any comment needed? But with a little patience a runway appears (what what I do without GPS?). Time to cool down & strenghten the nerves for the next tour. With real weather it seems to be difficult to find a good daytime to view the countryside here. But, be assured, it does not get boring either...
  13. Right - after Ken's and Tim's remarks I went back and searched through my addon folders. And I did have some PNG airports that I had gotten through avsim, plus the mesh from OZx. After deactivating and removing these I tried the Kokoda trail once again... The airstrip at Kokoda Textures are now probably as they should be - and the runway was lumpy The plane in the image above is level... Same thing here departing from Kagi A bit hard to recognise: the tents are "downhil" from the (very lumpy) runway at Manari The runway itself looks different as well (and, yes, the plane is level again) And back to Jacksons Intl I guess things are now as they were originaly intended to be. Thanks to Ken and Tim for the support Cheers Mallard
  14. I'm having a blast in PNG; got to take more pictures but I'm too busy finding and flying. Quite a challenge even in the BirdDog. Ken and Tim, if you do any more projects like this, count me in.
  15. There will be a live interview with myself and Ken this weekend Be sure to join us at 2200z. That's 8am for Eastern Australia | 3pm Pacific | 6pm Eastern | 10/11pm for Western Europe. We will be taking your questions and look forward to seeing you out there! http://www.airdailyx.net/fsnewsbreaker/2014/7/3/our-next-live-event-saturday-july-5th
  16. What a great scenery you guys have created here. A full size international airport only a short hop from Aussie and then change to a small plane for a fun flight up the Kokoda trail. RW weather made for some interesting landigs on some of the landing strips. Ground speed was down to 20 knots with a 35 knots headwind. I did bend a few Cessna's trying out all the strips.The Cessna used was a C182 Turbo. Strait V-keys, DX9 and no mods. FSX, REX essential OD and ASN for weather. Cairns to Jackson with Air Niugini: The Bush run starts off from Kokoda following the trail down to the meadows and then a right turn into the valley where the challenge begin. If you made it this far, thanks for watching. By the way; each strip has a lawn mower to keep the runways in good condition )
  17. Repaint now available here https://mega.co.nz/#!gwohyK4b!5oQFe-8QrHHhbaGXvd37McvYf_eTvuDO5ErXXO62QWw or here http://forum.aerosoft.com/index.php?/files/file/2745-aerosoft-twin-otter-x-p2-swe-southwest-air/
  18. Heading to the "Lost World" with the Twotter from Port Morseby. It's quite a stretch, so if you want to cut it short, just select Moro as your starting airport for the trip. Problem was that the weather wasn't too great for my first attempt... The crater of this extinct volcano was just barely visible through the clouds Some hours later the clouds had lifted a bit. But the Islander was assigned to another group of tourists - had to fall back on the 185 There's the village of the Bosavi kalu on the northern slopes of the volacno Damn this thing is high A glimpse of the crater and the surroundings Getting dark, so it's time to head back to Moro Coming home with the last of the day's light Cheers Mallard (Want to see it yourself? Get hold of the OZx PNG mesh, start at Moro and head roughly 240°. You cannot miss it)
