  1. Autumnal England and Wales in Orbx https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o016ujtlwYk&t=47s https://youtu.be/o016ujtlwYk
  2. I am still in shock with the quality of the images I got on this wonderful flight today. ORBX is really pushing the boundaries of photo-realism. I think this is the best photo set I was able to produce since I began with this "sim-photo-business" (or should I call it sim-photo-laziness?) Breathe in, breathe out! The set is large, just because I was in love with what I was seeing!!! Hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
  3. Bit More Modern EGHI & Isle of Wight (I wish there was a good BN Islander/Trislander for XPlane) including a visit from Yorkshire & Germany:
  4. My old 4GB VRAM GTX 980 suffers a little bit at EGHI with high resolution settings (time to replace it, if only I had money...). However, just outside the airport, performance is stellar, as usual with True Earth Great Britain South. Came a little too fast on threshold. I am always scared to be too slow and low while crossing M27, so I always end up touching down long on the runway. Hope you will enjoy.
  5. 1. Waiting for it's passengers to board at Southampton. 2. BIA was one of the main carriers out of Southampton in the 70s 3. Some very finely dressed passengers about to board their Embraer Jet. 4. Lifting off from Rwy 20. 5. The Isle of Wight with Cowes on the Medina River. 6. Approaching the French coast at Cosqueville 7. Cherbourg with it's huge harbour where Trans Atlantic liners used to dock in the old days. 8. Approaching the island of Jersey. 9. No cockpit, it is all being done with mirrors. St Aubin's Bay is on the left. 10. Short finals on 27. 11. Never went to Jersey but I will have to be content visiting the ORBX version. 12. Waiting for the return trip to Southampton. Does any one outside of England recognise this fine plane?
  6. Decided to go for a drive in the car I would buy if I ever won millions in the lottery. What I am trying to do is find my last house in the UK before I came to Australia. As my luck would have it , it is just off the edge of the EGHI scenery area. So much change in the last 36 years. 1. Eastleigh Airport is now Southampton International and a new roundabout to get onto Wide Lane. For those who don't know the Spitfire made it's first flight from here in 1936 2. A beautiful new station with a South West Trains Class 444 Desiro EMU on it's way to Bournemouth. 3. Still on Wide Lane/Southampton Road with the Campbell Road bridge to the railway works. 4. Looking down Factory Road. I worked at the Unigate Dairy but it has now gone with Eastleigh Metro shopping centre now where it used to be. The most famous worker there was comedian Benny Hill who worked as a milkman in the 50s. 5. Eastleigh Railway Station. 6. The Bishpstoke Road bridge, for 18 months I drove my milk float over there every morning on my way to make my doorstep deliveries. 7. Tried going along Twyford Road but it is off the EGHI scenery and I lost my bearings. Followed the railway back towards Eastleigh and was lucky enough to see Battle of Britain Pacific 34067 Tangmere. Some of this class were built at Eastleigh but this one was from Brighton. Of the 110 West Country and BoB Class locos from the 1940s 20 are preserved. 8. Now on Leigh Road, once part of the one way system there is now a pedestrian precinct splitting the road into 2 sections. Sorry officer I did not know that. 9. Nearly there on Woodside Avenue looking for Shakespere Road. 10. Well the scenery ended before Shakespere Road so this is the closest I could get looking at the co ordinates. I am now parked outside my old house in Selwyn Gardens. Buggar it, it looks like the house needs painting again! Not really but one of my favourite songs from 1969. Hope you enjoyed my drive around Eastleigh. Most of the roads are roughly in the right place but it was meant to be flown over and not driven around. Many thanks to Lars and Martin for this wonderful scenery which for me is full of memories from a long time ago.
  7. Here is an expose on EGHI. 18 shots...and I didn't even get all of it in here! (love the detailed airports) so...pics: Oh BTW - found out that all I had to do to upload ".jpeg" was to select "Image files" instead of "picture files" - or maybe its the other way around whatever the case may be...no renaming needed as I had thought before. Thanks for looking. hope you enjoyed them.
  8. 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.
  9. Some flights on a great ORBX scenery with the superb A2A T-6 texan. Some aerobatics at EGKA Smoking from EGKA to EGHI Autopilot flight from EGHI to EGBB Kind regards, Jorge.
  10. Chasing moving trains is an additional challenge next to the beautiful made Southampton airport(EGHI) scenery.
  11. Southampton is one of Orbx's gems, in my opinion, and this lot were take yesterday afternoon with live weather. Twelve hours later and I'd have been blown out of the sky as they had 80-90mph winds through here last night. Starting out - (and these look much better zoomed in - they're 4k shots and the level of detail in the Orbx scenery is really very special) Turned round after a bit and heading back to the coast coming back over the airfield - Now if I could just persuade Orbx to do a similar job on Southend, preferably set in around 1966, I'd be a very happy bunny, but I suspect that would have limited appeal. Not many people hanker after candy-floss tumbleweed blowing across the beach!
  12. Excuse my pushiness today, but I seem to be in the mood to share! The start of a journey out from Southampton out over the Isle of Wight with the aim of heading off up the Channel to investigate my new load of AI Shipping installs. Didn't get too far but have saved the flight and will come back to it later. Got to give another plug for the Alabeo R66 - wonderful beasty. Don't have Brighton (EGKA) yet but maybe by the time I resume this flight . . .
  13. The Spitfire prototype made it's first flight 80 years ago today from Eastleigh Airport near Southampton. As luck would have it I have the plane, K5054, in it's original form from the Justflight Battle of Britain package. 1. No undercarriage doors on the prototype. 2. No grass runway at Eastleigh either. 3. A tail skid was preferred to a tail wheel. 4. The railway works at Eastleigh, cannot see the Merchant Navy Class locomotive puffing around today, although they were first built in 1941. 5. The junction of the M3 and M27 at Chilworth. 6. Just above the starboard wing tip is Woolston, the site of the Vickers-Armstrong works which housed the original Spitfire assembly line. 7. Approaching rwy 02. The undercarriage remained lowered for it's first flight. 8. The old Ford site which closed in 2013 is seen on the left. This was originally the Cunliffe-Owen Aircraft plant which produced components for the Spitfire and in the later years of the war Spitfires were assembled here. 9. A very bouncy landing which would have received a severe ticking off from Mutt Summers, Vickers chief test pilot, who made that first flight 80 years ago today. Hope you have enjoyed this piece of history.
  14. Hey guys, I just picked up WLS, ENG (already had SCO). I am thinking about getting NIR and IRL while the sale special is happening. I did read while back that Orbx wasn't contemplating making airports for those region that time. Will there potential for some nice Orbx airports (especially catered to big and small planes) in 2016 for these 2 regions? Also - I know you guys do not give updates on time frame; but can you throw me a bone about EGHI, EGPB, EGKA update queue for P3Dv3. I bought the regions especially to have those airports. I actually do like all of your England airports. I just want to know are they up in queue for release soon or will it take like 6 months+. You guys do have lot of stuff on your P3Dv3 conversion queue. This way I can plan on when to buy those specific airports. Thank You.
  15. over Popham Enjoy and thanks for looking! FSX - DX10 - Shade - ASN Weather
  16. FlyBe service from Southampton to Hanover. My wife and daughter once paid a fortune to get the luggage on such a plane, probably I do now own a part of it . Arriving in Holland, that means FTXG scenery... ... over German fields... ... and the Weser river, with EDVY covered under clouds. Typical summer weather. Downwind EDDV... ... and on final to 27L, the most-used runway. Now I just got to catch a taxi and get home!
  17. Enjoy and thanks for looking! FSX - DX10 - Shade
