  1. WIZZ Airbus A320 flight from Belgrade (LYBE) to Gothenborg (ESGG). This is an actual operational flight schedule. Fair weather conditions but unfortunately mostly cloudy along the way. Herman Our aircraft as seen from behind a fence at Nikola Tesla International Airport, Belgrade Strict flight levels and speed limits apply whilst flying in Serbian airspace Cruising at FL360 Winging our way in a north-westerly direction Cruising FL360 increased to FL380 to avoid turbulance (for passenger comfort
  2. When I boarded for this supply flight in Arlanda the weather seemed so fine. But there were loads of load to load, and during this time a hazy shade of winter appeared! Flying over the clouds usually is no problem, ... ... giving even sights to interesting structures like the Kaitumälven river. But after the initial approach into Kiruna... ... the hazyness of winters shade became more tight! Good to see the runway, finally. Good to ignore the EICAS messenges, also final
  3. Just rain and storm here in northern Germany. I needed to see some winter colours, so I set up a little nordic tour. Starting in Hanover... ... and climbing out to the northeast, ... ... I reached the Baltic Sea near Rostock. The Swedish coast ahead, with the invisible Copenhagen in the background. Rushing up the country... ... until Stockholm awaits in the evening light. Perfect visibility... ... makes for a nice landing. Now lets go f
  4. Finally, after a virtual absence of nearly 5 months it seems to be time to fly to my home airport again. So I´ll take a blue-white Lancair from Schiphol... ... turn west over Amsterdam CBD... ... and reach the German border relatively quick, near Rheine. Ibbenbüren power plant guides the way... ... towards Osnabrück with its remarkable railway cross. At Porta Westfalica the Orbx sceneries GEN and EDVY do not really use synchronized seasons, surprisingly. The monument for Wilhelm th
  5. After arriving from Jo´burg / South Africa some passengers needed a connection from Munich. TrueGlass makes the rain more enjoyable. Through the clouds... ... and up to the Netherland coast. Obviously Amsterdam. Not easy to spot the assigned runway in this quite detailed landscape, ... ... flying by the instruments helps. Been there, done that.
  6. Gentlemen (and Ladies?), Speedbird 11 from Heathrow to Singapore is pushing back! Taxiing to runway 27L. Hello Concorde. Such a cute little plane. Lineup... On cruise level, we see some beautiful clouds over south-eastern England. It's already evening... ...as we cross the North Sea... ...only to find some seriously bad weather over Amsterdam! The Dutch must have summoned the bad weather because their airline celebrates its 100th birthday and they want all the attention for themselves!
  7. A successful SODE trial allows us to have a speedy boarding procedure at Bilbao... ... so that we could go quite quick. What a location. We headed northeast, to cross the Garonne (and the Dordogne) in Bordeaux. Stewart @European Mountain Man will probably know this place well. Here we are already descending into downwind, with a nice view across Paris and the Seine river. And the rainy final into Charles-de-Gaulles´ 27R. Some traffic around, which will result in a lenghty taxi tour on the
  8. Due to my troubles ocurred during the switch to Win10 I did not fly & post as much as usual during the last two months. But I am getting back, slowly. Today you see me leaving for a short Easter holiaday, picking a safe Boeing at Hanover... ... climbing over the Wesergebirge... ... and reaching FL350 over the Rhein. Northern France is mostly cloudy, ... ... but at least we can spot Biarritz over the south, to the right. Hours later. Leaving the west coast of Africa behind... ... for a short hop over
  9. Never been to Sardinia in the sim (I don't think). Flew in from Rome. This is Alghero to Cagliari. Straight 'v's. Next leg is back to Rome. Fair to say I'm a bit of a fan of openLC. It opens up a whole lot of the world. Mike
  10. Due to another update of the Aerosoft Airbus I had to chose an uncommon livery for a flight out of Tromsö. And these northern impressions are great... ... though the SID is not as easy as one might think! Oh, quel surprise: Coffee service already while climbing through 14000 ft! You can be very sure I open the cockpit door... At least the route was going around the worst weather. In order to avoid coffee spills. Who would be cleaning the cockpit? Here we meet the Baltic sea. I don´t know why Vector has chosen
  11. It's a wintry morning in Stockholm... ...the land seems frozen... ... visibility is reduced... ...snowflakes are dancing in the air. So is the Swedish winter! The United Airlines plane that's being catered at Gate Foxtrot 36 finds itself in this winter story... ...and is being de-iced right at the gate. The passengers inside the plane observe the de-icing crew doing their job without protecting their heads and hands against the cold. Those hardy Swedes! A few
  12. Although, given this weather, there might be too little lift to fly the FSX mission with the glider. So I´ll better take a KingAir and get ready in Arlanda. Man, this looks cold. BTW, this flight is done at noon. At least the Swedes are routined experts in cleaning the buildings and apron. Stockholm below. Only for those with radar eyes. OpenLC was not improving much of the scenery today. Hm, this does not only look cold. Luckily Gotland, my intended destination, shows up. ILS
  13. No fear, mates, this is neither a latin lesson nor a history one. This is "just" a flight between the two airports that come as a bonus in Magnus´ Kiruna scenery. An early morning start in Visby... ... where de-icing was requested by the ground crew. Taking off in southerly direction, ... ... yields a beautiful turn over the historical city of Visby. No too much to see from the swedish landscape... ... but the approach to Borlänge / Dala was even worse: Some might call this "whiteout"... Due t
  14. Leaving home again... ... and GEN already shows winter in a very beautiful way. Turning out to the right / north... ... to see Hanover airport & city above the Airbus. The Elbe river leads to hamburg - but you can´t see it under the clouds. Some colleagues flying around me. Copenhagen below... ... and Gotland to the right. If you look at the weather on the ND, our approach seems to be a good choice. Stockholm below, ... ..
  15. Welcome aboard Swiss International Flight 196 from Zürich to Peking, pardon, from Zurich to Beijing. Grüezi! It never rains in Northern Switzerland... wait: it pours, man, it pours! The Swiss controllers are a very relaxed concerning the dangers of crossing runways. Takeoff into the... soup. Sorry I forgot the proper word that I've read 100 times here. But soon we leave the clouds below us. Alpine rocks scrape the clouds over Tyrolia. Soon there's a hole in the grey blanket. Mighty
  16. Just some Asian (and North American) highlights, without much ado. PIA789 OPKC-CYYZ Baku The beginning of the Caucasus Range Scandinavia Greenland Labrador PIA790 CYYZ-OPLA Ontario Québec Oh no, the yellow flood! Mother Russia. Let's make an awesome turn. What remains of Lake Aral. It could benefi
  17. Going on from Munich we had the chance to choose the best airline of all. Well, it is a long flight, why should we go with some other? Climbing out of the 08L... ... to reach the initial FL350 just before Vienna. FTs scenery does not blend perfectly into FTXG. Later that day... the Caucasus. Already powdered. The russian Republic of Dagestan with Chirkey Lake below and the Caspian Sea ahead. Over Afghanistan / Pakistan we came into darkness. And India even presented thunderstorms - we had to divert.
  18. One holiday comes to an end, and we have to catch a flight in Heraklion. This is how the airport looked until early 2018. The airside was expanded meanwhile, but only in reality, not in the sim. Let´s go east, ... ... then north. Here we already cross the Peloponnes, with the channel of Corinth hidden under the cloud bottom right. Kerkyra / Korfu. From here we just follow the adriatic sea... ... until its northern end. Venice. One holiday spot follows the other. This is B
  19. From Heraklion, the capital of the Island of Crete... ... I followed the road southwards, over the moutains at Agia Varvara, ... ... where, after crossing the pass, we had a glorious view of the Messara plain. Further westwards the main city of the plainland, Mires, was crossed (and misplaced in Vector...), ... ... and over the Minoan harbour we flew out to the Libyan Sea. The uninhabited Paximadi islands are a good waymark to turn back... .. to the famous bay of Matala,
  20. We were getting ready in Athens for a little hop... ... and climbing out the 09R. You can easily imagine why the greek national colours are blue and white. After a few minutes on FL170 we are already approaching Heraklion in 09 direction. You can see that I had to manipulate the cockpit to make this old Airbus Extended livery working: The callsign is wrong. But the glideslope is right! The old venetian harbour... ... and the remainders of the city wall. Here we
  21. Boarding in Olbia, Sardegna. With a last view to the terminal. Climbing out in the real weather conditions of November - obviously I had to cheat with the simmed weather to get some views of the harbour... ... and the coast. Heading westwards we reach Italy. This is just east of Salerno... ... and here we cross the tip of the Italian "boot": From Taranto to Brindisi. Reaching Greece at Kerkira. The Bay of Korinth from the western end (right) to the east (l
  22. This time I was faster in the simulated flights than in real life. So I can only give you the additional proofs to the enclosed post now. Here is the reference... And here is the reality: On approach to Madrid Barajas... ... and visiting Toledo some minutes later. Mesh and vector data are ok, but the building charatcter is a clear deficite. Plus, that city has lots of POIs which would be nice in the sim, like the Puenta de San Martin or the Cathedral:
  23. Getting ready for a short hop out of the Basque region... ... and leaving Bilbao in a weather "with character". We reach Leon much faster than the pilgrims on their way to Santiago. And soon we go on, leaving the freeware senery from Simzaleak... ... to the heart of the country: Madrid. With its confusing runway layout. ILS helps...
  24. Today we leave Spain from Madrid Barajas... ... pass over Barcelona ... ... and cross the Mediterranean. A pilots job is so stressful. You can´t even finish the news on the Royals! I had to put the newspaper away, as the descend over Sardinia´s northeastern tip came so quickly. The industrial area of Porto Torres is just over the plane´s body - better places to stay are at the west coast. Descending ... ... into Olbia. You knew what you had to expect from a post report from me, didn´t you?
  25. Leaving Barcelona I had a good view of the tower... ... and found @Captain Lars just ahead of me. I had to wait for his huge wake before I could get off... ... on the initial SID towards the sea... ... and then westwards. Over the countryside, into dawn and clouds... ... and towards the Bay of Biscay. Fantastic visibility. At least ILS helps. Safe. Looks unique here... But the jetways really are not perfectly placed...
