  1. There are no scheduled flights from Singapore to my destination of today, but at least in exactly that direction. The shiny 787 gets cleared early... ... and leaves Singers with the morning light, ... ... waving g´day to the city. Flying southwest we cross Sumatra, which - to me - shows itself surprisingly big and rugged. Interesting for the future with OLC Asia. Some hours of Indian Ocean flying later (shortened by the QW jump function) Mauritius comes into view, ... ... and then the coast of Mada
  2. Then comes the day when one has to leave the land of Oz. At least in a stylish plane - just chartered for this special flight. Out of Darwin, ... ... for some seconds following Stuart Highway again, ... ... but soon turning north to the Java Sea. Some cloudy hours later we can spot Borneo´s west coast... ... and begin to descend... ... over Pulau Bintan.... ... and Bataam... ... into Singers. I find Singapor
  3. Directly following the previous night flight... ... I added flight SQ227 Singapore-Melbourne to test the full virtual exhaustion. 18 minutes after takeoff the equator is crossed and the lucky ones anong the passengers fall asleep. Not much to see from the continent; even over Adelaide it is still night. But soon the sun sets, ... ... and one could spot Birdcage Reserve. Good morning, Victoria! It took me some time to load the autogen of Melbourne. At least la
  4. When I did this flight in the sim, we were booked on it: SA264 from Johannesburg to Munich. Departing - unfortunately - in darkness... ... and it remained dark over the entire continent. This would not be a too interesting flight. At least, we got something to recognize over northern Italy: Bolzano, which we have often passed by car. This is the Brenner Autobahn, ... ... ending at Innsbruck. After crossing the northern alps ... ... we could spot the Starnber
  5. This flight goes from Kruger Mpumalanga (yes, I did not work on the elevation correction, because I wait for OLC), ... ... over the dams at Klipkoppie ... ... to the village of Graskop, where we will start this tour by car in a few months. Across Sabie, ... ... and the Long Tom Pass, ... ... before going into the lowlands at Mashishing... ... and Dullstroom. Some power stations have been added to the scenery near Phola. Abso
  6. No, this is no analogy to Statler and Waldorf. This is "just" a flight over some places we have planned to visit in our holiday later this year. We´ll leave from Hoedspruit airfield in South Africa... ... to Balule Reserve near Kruger NP, where we´ll spend some days. Next stop Moholoholo Rehabilitation Center, not present in the sim. With the plane we can cover another series of sights in a few minutes. The northern end of the Panorama Route with the Three Rondavels, ... ... Blydepoort Dam, ...
  7. Our next leg will go from Cape Town, ... ... climbing over False bay, ... ... and finally into the "deserts" of the default African landscape near FAVW, Victoria West. However, just about 90 minutes later the passengers might be served a great panorama: The Panorama Route along Blyde River! Its northern end is near the Blydepoort Dam, which us just under the approach into Hoedspruit´s runway 18. Deboarding to the main terminal. And ready for some excitement.
  8. Even without the upcoming OLC Africa Cape Town should be worth a visit. Here we go heading south from the airport... ... and over the beach to False Bay. The name of the bay is a tribute to those sailors who turned north after passing the wrong cape of South Africas southern tip: The real southernmost point is Cape Agulhas, a few miles to the east. This one here is more famous, but misleading for some navigators: The Cape of Good Hope. And I hope that we will see great improvements with OLC later this year...
  9. Here we go from Johannesburg O. R. Tambo airport (ICAO code is FAOR, and in the current optics it should be called FAbORing in the simulator) ... ... across Joburg city ... ... and, later, Bloemfontain. On the way we can see the South African landclass in all its current "glory". And this is, indeed, the famous "table cloth", hanging over the mountain with the same name at Cape Town. At least the runway could be seen underneath the clouds, ... ... and a beautiful view o
  10. This will not be an unexpected journey (as the livery might suggest), but an uncommon one. Especially for a twin engine plane. From Christchurch... ... we are heading southbound over NZ´s South Island. Near Dunedin this is Mahinerangi Lake, ... ... and over Stewart Island we leave New Zealand. Time to reveal where we are going to: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polar_route#Antarctica The problem of this route is illustrated here: TINA (= there is no alternate). Instead, we can see
  11. We went from Brisbane to Sydney to Canberra to Singapore... ... and had 7 hours of layover at that location. Luckily WSSS is well equipped for this type of travelling - while our plane was being prepared... ...we spent some time at the (nearly private!) pool in T1. Finally we got off, over the ever-impressing strait of Malacca. Some movies and the Bay of Bengal later we reached India, ... ... Delhi to our right: Chasing the sun over Afghanistan.
  12. In the upcoming weeks I will bother you with some flights and places we have visited during our holiday in September. Maybe boring to you, but for me this is one of the bigger pleasures of sim flying... Here we go, and I´ll skip the night flight with Singapore´s A350 into their home town. We start with a budget flight in the morning (well, the worst was the check-in procedure, the rest was as expected and therefore reasonable). Ready for boarding. Engines started... ... and off we go. The usual ship meet in front of Singers.
  13. In my last post I arrived in Munich and asked where my next flight might be going. Martyn guessed "Andorra", and today we will see if he was right. Here we get ready with the plane & airline of choice. Flight number is SQ327 for those who want to spoil. Let´s go! Munich city... ... and the airport, seen from a southern fly-by. The Chiemsee with the alps in the background. Today we even use the center tanks. Slightly later, passing the Crimea. Mt. Elbrus in the
  14. Do you remember the first three legs we will have to fly on our way back home from our planned Australia trip? https://orbxsystems.com/forum/topic/165774-an-uncommon-fire-patrol/ https://orbxsystems.com/forum/topic/165894-5th-freedom-flight/ https://orbxsystems.com/forum/topic/166011-from-oz-to-singers-as-well/ Here we go with the 4th one, milewise the longest. SQ326 from Singapore to Frankfurt, departure time is 13:55 h. We can see all the good food & lovely drinks being loaded... Takeoff with approx. 90 tons (200 tlbs) of fuel takes significantly longer t
  15. Seems I choose the appropriate airline for starting in Guangzhou, UT live did the same. Climbing out we have a great view of "Canton" city... I thought this would be a vector error at the delta of Zhujiang river. But it is correct: GE shows it as well. If the water might be sweet enough for watering the fields? 20 minutes after start we pass VHHH Chek Lap Kok. Could be a destination, but not for us... Macau is not either. Instead we turn back on STAR TAMT13 towards Hongkong (old) Kai Tak ... .
  16. Getting ready in Delhi in typical Indian weather... ... and with the typical traffic jam. This airport has only single runways, so it is way to small for all the traffic (like their roads). The ganges and some artificial lakes near Dhanbad. Kolkata. As big as LA, and as flat. Leaving the coast of Bangladesh... ... and landfall at Myanmar. Irrawaddy river - its banks are full of pagodas. Bangkok, hidden under the curtain. Into Singapore we got the STAR ARA
  17. Getting ready in Hong Kong Kai Tak - from the choice of the airline you may start to guess where we are flying today. Here we climb out along the rivers near Guangzhou. Some hours later the Sichuan mountains come into view, ... ... as we cross the city of Chengdu. The worlds main reservations of the Great Panda are in the forests and mountains around, so it is no surprise they sell lots of related stuff at the airport. Commonly unknown, but over 20000 ft high: Rongme Ngatra https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rongme_Ngatra
  18. On my way from orbx region (AU) to orbx region (NO) I decided to make a little detour in Asia. So I set up a China Southern flight in Singapore... ... into the regular clouds at noon. "Traffic, traffic!" We went north over the (unspectacular appearing) coast of Vietnam, until we got clearance for descend into Hongkong. At least a clear STAR procedure... ... into Kai Tak. I had hoped for the famous checkerboard approach into the 13, but the gods of the winds (and the ATC) had decided different. The city view
  19. Some men at work here: Ground service at Singapore Changi. Flexing up! Amazing how many ships are waiting here. Low & slow over Pulau Batam island - due to an altitude restriction of 6000 ft. Finally we were allowed to climb, and after 21 minutes we crossed the equator - nearly at cruise flight level. Bali. Hours later we reach the land of Oz near Curtin. This is where dreams start. Some really flat land around Fitzroy Crossing...
  20. 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.
  21. ... was from VABB Chhatrapati Shivaji, (Mumbai) with Air India, departure at 02:00 in the night. The real situation has a lot more light & ground traffic than the sim - showing the real India can´t be simulated! Ready to go on the 26... ... and we´re off. Looking back to the airports... ... and over the Ocean. Displays are configured... ... and the routing is done. Be flexible. Thailand, we come. Initiating the complex approach p
  22. A lovely morning in Copenhagen, expecting spring... Close the doors, please, that´s just too cold here! You see, the season switcher already wants the landscape to be green... ... but the temperature indicator says something different. Crossing Lübeck... ... and the Mittellandkanal at Wolfsburg. If you follow the channel for some few kilometres you come to lovely Hannover. These Germany colours look (unfortunately) realistic for an average March. Currently it would be white... Des
  23. UT live did a great job a Shanghai Pudong, presenting the Scandinavian A340 at exactly the right (real) time. As there is no decent A340 for p3d yet, we will have to simulate this flight in a 777. A near miss, but a pleasure. Thanks to the cabin crew, I could get a proper documentation of the flight preparations in the Airbus. Waiting for pushback. Some big colleagues heading home (the United 747 probably in the opposite direction than the Lufthansa below)... ... while UT live presents a challenge to me. SK998 is being pushed back si
  24. After a busy week I finally found some time to celebrate Chinese New Year. What could be better than a little flight to the "countryside", China Eastern 2254 from Shanghai Hongqiao, for example - ready for boarding. But before we board, we walk through the airport to watch mighty birds... ... and to buy some snacks for the flight. Pushback complete, hand signal received. Takeoff, ok some city details are missing... The chinese landscape already looks good in pure Global. Descending into Yancheng.
  25. Oh, so sorry, I am late, just too much work to finish... but finally I can take flight SQ 828 from Changi to Pudong: Make sure the right luggage is loaded. Taking off out of Singapore... ... into the usual clouds, even at 07:30 in the morning. Here we are already over China, near Xiamen... ... and over Taishun county. That´s what the paxes usually see here. No Orbx scenery detectable (but it is there!). Into holding at NW of Pudong airport... ... and finally into final, tow
