  1. ... and as you can expect from me I also took some RL pictures for my motivation. This time we fly from @Fischkopps home airport, the recently renamed EDDH... Not enough traffic in the sim, in contrast to RL. But I prefer to reduce VAS usage until we get 64bits... Some other thing that is always missing in the sim is the lounge view. I fear this will stay even with 64bit . OK, ready to taxi. This was one of the RL birds I used for this route recently. Take off with Hamburg downtown view. Altona and the harbour. The Volksparkstadion just above the cockpit. Peacefully cruising over Schleswig-Holstein, with realistic colours. Copenhagen comes into view... ... and, on final into the 22s, the Öresund bridge. A windfarm ahead... ... and the Copenhagen opera house. Touchdown... ... and ready to deboard. Now heading for some Öl and seafood...
  2. Short helicopter flight from Rügen to Barth via Stralsund Enjoy and thanks for looking! P3DV3 - ASN Weather Cheers Karsten
  3. Kamov Ka-50 "Black Shark" from Schönhagen near Berlin to Peenemünde Enjoy and thanks for looking! P3DV3 - ASN Weather Cheers Karsten
  4. 14 days ago the spring weather was all but lovely here in Hannover. Time to travel! Gain speed on the 27R... Takeoff, and keep the photographer confused with all these clouds. But descending into Munich the weather was not much better... At least we finally found a place where simmers can meet and spend some time.
  5. Hmmm, such a good looking place in Zurich airport... (in fact is it the smokers lounge, so no place for me - except for taking a picture). OK, let´s go, once again with a well suited bird for this one-hour flight. Bye, bye, mountains! Getting back to Germany (Fulda beyond)... ... and into Germany North. To the left we should see Rinteln and Porta Westfalica, and clearly the Weser river approaching the Porta between the mountain ridges. Some manouvres, see the approach procedure on the ND. And this is the time & place to turn into final towards the 09L. An uneventful landing and the short way to grab a taxi make this trip complete. But I´ve been here too often to make pictures... getting back overseas soon!
  6. Beautiful Spring flight from Jüterbog to Stendal via Wittenberg, Dessau, Magdeburg and Tangermünde Enjoy and thanks for looking! P3DV3 - ASN Weather Cheers Karsten
  7. Two shots of Kiel Two shots of the Marine-Ehrenmal (Naval Memorial) Laboe Eckernförde Two shots of Schleswig Klappbrücke Lindaunis Kappeln an der Schlei Schloß Glücksburg Two shots of Flensburg Flensburg again Enjoy and thanks for looking! P3DV3 - ASN Weather Cheers Karsten
  8. Sorry, I have to interrupt my Tassie experience for a little winter flying - before my RL shots get outdated. So I joined Swiss International Airlines on their 777 training program from Hanover to Zurich. Get ready for boarding... ... here we go, Rwy 09L today. This time I got a beautiful "BTW" seat... ... but I had to climb out of the plane to get a better view of Zurich. Limited views, ... ... sometimes ok for the tourists, ... ... but a challenge to fly. Finally the runway comes in sight. Time to slow down... ... and turn to parking. Grüezi!
  9.

  10. Inspired by some wonderful screenies here on the forum I had to make a short flight at dawn over our Capital - with the challenge to decide on the corresponding music first. In contrast to MartynAir I did not choose the Beatles, but something with a little slideshow as a starter... OK, mates, here we go from Tempelhof (where else?)... ... to the Sowjet Memorial ... ... and one of the sponsored-name arenas where I refuse to remember the current name (usually this pays off for me). Alexanderplatz, ... ... and the political center. Too many POIs on this picture to name them. At least the "pregnant oyster" with her remarkable roof needs to be mentioned. The Goldelse in perfect light. And back to the airport across the Kurfürstendamm, ready for christmas shopping.
  11. ... to complete my recent GEN tour, it seemed to be ending in Kassel-Calden. But, with no commercial traffic left, that airport is way too boring to stay for a flight enthusiast, so I went on to Göttingen... ... and along the southern rim of the Harz to Nordhausen. An unspeakable part of history is linked to this village: Nearby was the Nazi concentration camp Mittelbau-Dora, where the V-1 and V-2 rockets were built in subterranean facilities. The V-2 is claimed to be the only weapon where more people were killed building it than during its use. At least a memorial tries to keep us remembering. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mittelbau-Dora More positive is the history of Wittenberg, it is now 499 years ago that Martin Luther published his theses for reformation of churches at the church of this city. Maybe we get a LutherFlow next year? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Martin_Luther Crossing the highest point of northern Germany, the Brocken... ... to Goslar... ... and Hahnenklee, some people even try to do skiing here. But it might be more convenient to visit the stave church. Just a very short hop from the Harz to this beautiful city. You have to guess which.
  12. ... greetings to all of you on the occasion of my post #8000. You can find me in one of those houses below with a good glass of red wine...
  13. It was getting cold here these days, so I even pushed the calendar forward into January to check the GEN winter. I headed southwards out of Porta Westfalica... ... towards Brilon. Vector is fantastic here, the 180 deg corner under the tail of the Katana feels really endless in RL, and it is wise to follow the speed limit there. Here we are, in the Winterberg skiing area. The Remmeswiese to the left, Brembergkopf to the right. Easy to ride, but a pleasure (given snow is sufficient). Winterberg "city", with the Kappe mountain to the left. I went on to the Edertalsperre, with Schloß Edertal to the left... ... and an overview with some warmer zone around. Below is Kassel-Wilhelmshöhe, another 3D-autogen object. Landing in Kassel-Calden is easy, there is not much traffic in this (useless) airport https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kassel_Airport , another "white elephant".
  14. So, for the time being, I have to leave the Ruhr area. Getting out of Dortmund to Hamm, where the ICE trains are divided or combined (every German train guest knows this announcement "Der Zug wird in Hamm geteilt. Ein Wechsel zwischen den Zugteilen ist nicht möglich.") Vector makes it look a bit too prominent, but at least we are reminded of the trick. Hamm also is the home of a nuclear technology experiment, that turned into a total financial disaster: The Thorium high temperature reactor https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/THTR-300 . Next to everything else, the cost for the demolition are estimated to be hundreds of millions of euros, and it is not clear who should pay. Imagine this money put into flight simulation (or road maintenance). Let us go and gain the energy more sustainable at the Möhnetalsperre. Whoever wants to praise the dambusters, look at the village just under the dam, with a wonderfully depicted football pitch. Soest. So ist the look of these cities, ... ... as well as Paderborn. Here we come to Senne army training ground, a look that is familiar to you in the meantime. The Externsteine just over Detmold. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Externsteine ... and the Hermann monument nearby. Gütersloh with the Bertelsmann admin buildings and the Miele works. Crossing Herford with its art gallery MARTa https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marta_Herford . Closing in to the Porta Westfalica, we should be able to see my office from this view... ... so we turn, land, park and jump onto my bike to get there and earn some money.

  17. Here we go around in the agglomeration, as Martyn suggested. I started at Düsseldorf and had a look at the Henkel / BASF factories in Holthausen first. There is also a blue-yellow furniture nearby in RL, the factories and rail system look acceptable. Going north, past the rowing centrum in Duisburg... ... and looking back, over cities like Mülheim, Duisburg and Moers, all in one shot. I was too high over the Krupp works in Duisburg to see the details that Jack and Martyn spotted. That is my price of the immersion: If I fly lower, the ground starts to get blurry... And this is how the boss of the Krupp Works used to live. A little less urban, though in the heart of the area. The famous Zeche Zollverein just below... ... and a view over Germany´s 20 million people city. The pyramid in Bottrop... ... and the Arena auf Schalke, as you can see they move the pitch out of the stadium between matches to have better growing grass for the valuable football players. Lots of energy conversion being done in the Ruhr area... ... and lots of green fields when you approach to Dortmund international. The impression of GEN is always fantastic, even though I always find some POIs missing (e. g. the Westfalenstadion in Dortmund, which is nearly cruel as their nemesis Schalke is depicted).
  18. I feel it is time to leave Velgast and to start a little historic tour along the baltic coast. The Hanse was a commercial and defensive confederation of merchant guilds and their market towns. This confederation lasted over a period which seems incredibly long nowadays... read more: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hanseatic_League . Some of these towns are quite detailed in GEN, and I could even include Norway into this lesson (which I skip due to time constraints). Frank dropped me off at Barth airport... ... and soon we headed to the Hanse city of Rostock, ... ... its harbor Warnemünde (now with a detailed harbor, improved to OLC), ... ... Schwerin, ... ... and the next former Hanse city, Wismar. A little detour to watch trade ships of the time near Fehmarn (plus a more modern one, https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/U_34_(Bundeswehr) ...), ... before we pass the sail ship Passat, a true Hamborger Veermaster (added to the scenery by @Fischkopp , many thanks!) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Passat_(ship) ... ... and reach Lübeck, the former Capital of the Hanseatic League. From the aereal view you can guess why the city was founded there. Enough teaching for today, be prepared for a test shortly!
  19. ... means a little regional change within GEN. First a little tour around Hamburg, from the harbour area... ... along the Elbphilharmonie, now also in RL looking like in the sim... ... and north towards St. Pauli ... ... and the Aussenalster, ... ... towards Helmut-Schmidt-Airport for an equipment change. Then across some marshes ... ... passing Bremen ... ... and the Dümmer See, ... ... towards the Rhein ... ... and into Düsseldorf. Just in time for the beginning carneval campaign. Helau!
  20. They wanted to charge me the usual 40 bucks for breakfast in a Berlin hotel, so the decision was easy to jump into my trusty Legacy... ... and head north. Not much to see with real weather... ... at least the lifting bridge at Karnin, ... ... the coast of Heringsdorf... ... and the surroundings of Peenemünde were visible. But for Prora... ... and Rügen ... ... I had to switch to the new Orbx weather theme 7. It is spot-on for Germany-North, great work! Now heading down to Stralsund... ... waking up @Frank Schnibben in Velgast... ... and into Barth. I hope for a much better breakfast here, maybe combined with a welcome drink. Who knows?
  21. Not really knowing much about Germany, topographically speaking, I thought I'd explore around Hamburg. I'm glad I did, the scenery around there is wonderfully well done. No idea how realistic it is, but looks damn fine on my screen! No reason for a Mexican Navy 'plane to be anywhere near here, but I like the paint job. Just a short trip north into Schleswig-Holstein then turn round over the North Sea coast and head back down the Elbe to the city. Real weather, and got some fine moody stuff to fly in. All 4k, and best on a big screen as usual. Off we go! Lots of low cloud today Occasional breaks in the cloud Amazing scenery, this - kudos to Orbx Heading to turn back now, I think this is called Freidrichskoog down there And heading back into the murk to follow the Elbe down to Hamburg. Very impressed with this scenery, and somehow this weather seems to bring out the best in it
  22. So, having turned round just up past the mouth of the Elbe, we're about to head back down river to Hamburg city - Don't know what this is all about, but I know what you're thinking! But you're wrong - I went over them! This is a shame, those chimneys are really well done, but they've got the wrong sort of tile underneath them This is the same scene from Google Earth Approaching the city now And this is the last thing I saw before I got another OOM At some point, I'll come back and carry on heading south. If I spot anything interesting (and I'm fairly confident I will with this scenery) I'll take some shots. Meanwhile, that's it from here for now.
  23. I know @andy1252 and @VH-KDK are around here, but I am running out of cash and have to go home. Perhaps our ways cross on the trip? Leaving Sylt... ... north to the Elbow, Germanys northernmost point. It take just some minutes to cross Schleswig-Holstein by plane, to reach Flensburg. Down the beautiful baltic sea coast to Laboe with its (3rd party) naval memorials ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laboe_Naval_Memorial )... ... Kiel, ... ... and the (incomplete-in-orbx) HDW docks. Now following the Nord-Ostsee-Kanal westwards to Rendsburg, where lots of traffic needs to cross the channel. The landscape looks so great! Brunsbüttel, with the industrial area grouped around the inop nuclear power plant. And south of the Elbe we find the gardens of the Altes Land ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Altes_Land ), the biggest fruit-producing region in Central Europe, with the characteristic Marschhufendörfer, a special kind of village where the farmyards are set along a street with the land directly behind them. Chapeau, Orbx, a masterpiece for a geography lesson! The next inop NPP, Stade... ... and here we find (and neglect) the same challenge than Andy encountered earlier today. Down to Hamburg´s Volksparkstadion, ... ... and into Finkenwerder for the night. Let me include next mornings short flight also: Waking the rich folks in Blankenese... ... passing the harbour area... ... and shortly after we find Hanover airport, the proper homebase for my next tour... Did I ever mention it here: I love the North!
  24. Another tour in my home territory, covering sights that took me years to collect in RL... From Bremerhaven-Luneort I crossed Nordholz... ... and Cuxhaven. We were regularly having field hockey matches versus Schwarz-Weiss Cuxhaven in my youth. Their slogan was "Alte Liebe, Kugelbake, hej hej!". But here the famous Kugelbake is missing - ships would get grounded here! Westwards into the Weser mouth... ... and to tower #1: Lighthouse Weser. Tower #2: Lighthouse Rote Sand. A short hop from there up to Helgoland... ... where we clearly miss the Lange Anna rock. Eastwards to the gigantic beach of St.-Peter-Ording... ... and to the next famous lighthouse around: Westerheversand. Surprising they use it in the advertisements for Jever beer: It is in a different state, some 5 h of driving distance from the Jever brewery... Northbound ... ... to Pellworm, ... ... Föhr ... ... and finally Sylt. Let´s see if we find a cheap place to dine & sleep.
  25. On a late summer morning departing from my home airport (which is, as I have to suffer, not state-of-the-art in the sim)... ... following the 27R (do you also miss the cooling tower in GEN here?) ... ... and down south. Vector is really great. A morning landing in Munich can be troublesome. The politicians had put the airport into wetlands, so 3 seasons of the year you can have long queues in the air and on the ground. Climbing out again over Moosburg and its gravel quarries... ... into the Czech Republic... ... downwind over Prague, ... ... and into final. The city of Prague would deserve a (little) cityscape, does anybody know if there is something to get out there? However, Vlad has given us some Czech details. If you climb out southwesterly you come to Karlstejn Castle, ... ... followed by the castles of Tocnik and Zebrak, ... ... just before you reach Horovice. Nicely done. Thank you, Vlad!
