  1. As i fly most in P3D, AFS2 and XP11 recently, I was curious to fly for once in my first FlightSim : FSX in Steam Edition remains on my PC, the original FSX is deleted. I was surprised to find back the recently for XP11 released Compton Abbas airfield EGHA and fooled around with some not so often seen aircrafts. At the end I departed satisfied from the airport in my fantasy-car to other adventures.
  2. A series of take off shots from recent flights. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11.
  3. A couple of shots from Compton Abbas. 1. 2,
  4. Here is a twilight flight from Compton Abbas to Southampton. 1. A few of the happy passengers waiting to enjoy a memorable flight. 2. Taxiing out this magnificent old DH.89 Dragon Rapide at Compton Abbas. 3. Trundling down the runway and about to lift off. 4. Close to Sixpenny Handley. 5. In the distance are the lights of Bournemouth, here at Ringwood we pick up the A31 at it's junction with the infamous A338 Spur Road 6. On the western fringes of the New Forest at Picket Post. 7. Approaching Emery Down, on the horizon the setting sun shines on one of the best fishing rivers in England, the Hampshire Avon. 8. Totton is on the left with the container docks at Millbrook under the plane. The River Test flows into The Solent here. 9. Something quaintly British about this plane. Only they would design a cockpit with a bloody great pillar obscuring the forward view in this way. I am too busy worrying about that to notice I am a bit high but it is a long runway and a very slow old plane. 10. Safely down and slowing down very quickly. 11. The floodlights now taking hold as the sun sets. The passengers, like me enjoyed the flight so much they want to go around again. Maybe tomorrow. What a wonderful old plane this is and a most enjoyable flight too. Here is a link if you are interested. I used the EMT and it works fine in P3DV2.4. http://www.cbfsim.co.uk/cbfs_lib/thumbnails.php?album=11 Hope you enjoyed the flight as much as I did.
  5. A quick trip from Compton Abbas to Exeter via Bournemouth. 1. Too busy taking shots and nearly ran out of runway. 2. I like the contra-prop Spitfire as is does not swing on take off. 3. Rapidly climbing out of EGHA. 4. A last sight of Compton Abbas through the clouds before heading for the coast. 5. Over Ferndown with EGHH in sight. 6. Crossing the coast at Boscombe with Wessex Way snaking through the suburbs. 7. Passing Anvil Point and Swanage. 8. Too much low cloud to see Weymouth and Portland, now at Chesil Beach and The Fleet near Langton Herring! 9. Making tracks for Exeter Airport at Sidmouth. 10. Over the A3052 at White Cross. 11. Exeter EGTE. 12. Parked up after a very enjoyable flight.
  6. One of Rons repaints. :-)
  7. Spitfire flight from Compton Abbas (EGHA) to Chichester/Goodwood (EGHR). I love the older Spit's, and I know that's a relative term.
  8. Just three shots taken at Compton Abbas featuring Alabeo's wonderful Cessna 195. 1. 2. 3.
  9. Popham to Compton-Abbas Enjoy and thanks for looking! FSX - DX10 - Shade
  10. Haven't flown for a while, finally had a free day and the weather was gorgeous so I could continue with my Nav solos. And where else could I go but Compton Abbas! Feel like I know the place inside out thanks to Orbx, even thought this was only my second time flying there IRL! Flying out of Dunkeswell. Flight time just under 30 mins. The aircraft in question is G-OCPC, a Cessna/Reims 152 Aerobat, although I'm sadly not allowed to do aeros! In the cruise, 2500", 90kts IAS 08 at Compton today, as I was the only one in the circuit (everyone else was already depleting the restaurant stock..!), I joined a left base leg. About to turn finals - can be tricky to land at with the bumpy grass runway, but so fun! Looking down the line - very busy today - the Around Britain Air Rally had just flown in from Perranporth and were heading off to Goodwood after lunch. A slightly better view. The iconic restaurant and ops building! The view is just incredible! Waiting for a space to run up, took a shot just to prove how bloody brilliant the Orbx version is. On a left downwind, about to exit to head back to Dunkeswell
  11. Compton-Abbas Airport Weymouth Portland Heliport Poole Harbour Salisbury Cathedral Popham Airport Enjoy and thanks for looking!
  12. First shots from my first european airport. Enjoy and thanks for looking!
  13. ... downwind at EGHA ... A very nice, small and charming place! Congratulations to everyone involved at the developer's team here. I think i will use this place for some dedicated VFR flights at the UK over next weeks ahead!
  14. Just three shots of my second repaint, P-40C this time - totally fictional and looking very battle scarred! A clean start-up: Messing up the circuit...!! Taxi to parking: As ever, thank you for taking the time to have a look
  15. Just one I took whilst testing my first repaint out of Compton. Been heavily edited with Photoshop as I don't quite have the performance to run ENB!
  16. Just acquired Photoshop, been playing around with a few screenshots taken from a flight between Yeovilton and Compton Abbas in the Carenado Cessna CT210M. Was quite pleased with the results of a bit of tweaking so thought I'd post. Just departing Eastward with Yeovilton in the background. Some of the beautiful Somerset countryside. Entering Downwind leg - definitely need some elbow grease on that windscreen! Looks like some kind of evil insect whilst the gear is moving.. Short Finals, always have to remember Compton's elevation! Landing Roll - one of the most pleasant (and indeed one of the only) GA airfields I've encountered in real life! That cleaner always seems to be there. Must make the airfield bankrupt with his overtime! All parked up, gorgeous flight! Thanks to all that take the time out to have a look, and thank you to Orbx, totally transformed my FS experience!!
  17. Hey guys, Here's another quick preview shot of Compton Abbas (EGHA). This time showing the light maps. Thanks, Russ
