  1. Been away for a little bit, and was longing for some old-fashioned PNW beauty. Mission accomplished.
  2. This is the proof I recently was here outside business hours (no PeopleFlow around): This time there are guests at Ernie´s café in KFHR: Getting onboard after breakfast... A beautiful scenery that deserves a detailed inspection. Victoria, without any freeware upgrades. And arriving across Clallam Bay... ... into Sekiu. Luckily enough some fellow simmer has removed most of the trees before I came. Climbing out over a place for software pirates... ... and with a view of Sekiu town: Neah Bay... ... and the nearby Sooes Beach. I suspect the Ocean is too cold for a relaxing bath... The Olympic mountains collect rain... Here we turn "homewards" over Ocean Shores, ... ... before descending into Bowerman. In time for a little burger at Lana´s!
  3. Following my recent flight towards Seattle I just "had" to inspect some older sceneries that I did not fly in p3d yet - or even did not own before the last sales. So I set up a flight plan with a little loop, ... ... went out of KPAE... ... over Everett... ... and into the valley of the "North Fork Stillaguamish River". It should be possible to give it an even longer name, but I see it would not be easy. Fantastic mountains around Darrington... Heading on northwards over the Sauk river... ... into Concrete. These Washingtonians seem to be very resistant against cold & wet weather. Nothing more than T-shirts here... Climbing to the west over Skagit river... ... but not for long, as Israel´s Farm is waiting to be found. And finding it is a real challenge... Even on the ground the runway can easily be overlooked. It is only a short hop until the Anacortes refinery comes into view, ... ... which means the sim pilot has to make the little detour south to Deception Pass bridge. Paul was polite enough to leave the signs installed at Anacortes airfield. You´ll probably see a little anomaly here - which I will report separately as well. Downwing over San Juan Island into KFHR... ... where I naturally stop directly next to the Café for a little burger. But the windows are dark, and no guests there - did I arrive out of business hours?
  4. I took a little trip from Skagit Regional to Friday Harbor, flying over Anacortes and circumnavigating San Juan Island- so three ORBX airport sceneries all layered on top of FTX PNW. In FSX/P3D V2 days, my system would have struggled with all of this together (certainly at these settings), but now you can see the results yourself! This was also a chance to show the REX Weather Advantage radar and TrueGlass rain effects on the Milviz 310R REDUX. Enjoy!
  5. Just in case you were wondering why you haven't seen the "Dude" in 0S9 Jefferson County, this is probably why! Just a little levity for the forum, (to go along with Mr. Jack Sawyer's), hope you like it! Roger 1. I'm telling you Sir, I didn't do it!! Whatever it was!! Hey Bub, can I catch a ride to Friday Harbor? That Jefferson County Sheriff told me I wasn't welcome in his town anymore! Do you beleive that! Better hurry up if you're going with me!! OK, OK, give me a second to climb up there! This is my first time to fly and I'm a bit nervous, so PLEASE be careful, OK? Ready for startup, close your door, sit back, buckle up, relax and enjoy the flight. Taxi to Rwy 09 for KFHR Well Son, you might want to take a last look at Jefferson County down there! Coming to KFHR, passing over Cattle Point on San Juan Island. Just let me out over by the terminal, my wife is waiting there, and boy is she gonna to be PO'd!! Thank you Sir for the lift, I appreciate it very much and since you got me here in one piece, let me grab some money from the little lady, hang on a sec. Hello Hon, I'll explain later, just give me some money for the pilot that got me outta Jefferson County. Dang, got rid of all the text except for the last shot (sorry bout that) !
  6. An early morning jaunt from Sekiu to Friday Harbor. The PNW is still my favorite...even after all these years.
  7. (Images reduced from original 5760 x1080 resolution) Orbx – FTX: Global, Vector, Open LC North America, HD Trees; FTX: NA Blue USA/Canada Pacific Northwest; FTX NA KFHR Friday Harbour
  8. Ganges Aerodrome to Friday Harbour Airport on a clear spring day... Orbx – FTX: Global, Vector, Open LC North America, NA Blue USA/Canada Pacific Northwest, NA KFHR Friday Harbour Airport, NA CAX6 Ganges Water Aerodrome Leaving Ganges Here we are at Friday Harbour Need to stop at customs and declare my maple syrup Cleared customs. That’s all for today. Hmm, maybe I should go there for a nice cold beer after I get everything put away…
  9. ....... these birds will soon fly south for the winter. Thank-you, for looking in !
  10. Always loved the default airport area in the early years of FSX-user. The by Orbx-FTX enhanced scenery of this airport and the whole Island of San Juan is also via my FS P3D in this video the start for an aerobatic flight in the by Alabeo fine modelled stuntplane Pitts S2. Enjoy the flight as I did as virtual pilot:
  11. First shot is departing Friday Harbor for a trip to Nanaimo, taking a close look. Absolutly stunning scenery! Thanks for viewing.
  12. When I came (from Anacortes) to San Juan Island, intending a check of the discounted purchase airport of Friday Harbour, I was not less - and not more - expecting than an Orbx-style airport, with a bit of enhanced scenery around. But what I encountered even at the first spot at Burden Field surprised me a lot - much more than I expected. So I went over to KFHR ... ... for a coffee and an equipment change. Set up a flight plan - and went... ... back south again to Burden Field, ... ... False Bay, ... ... Kanaka Bay, ... ... heading north past a lighthouse, ... ... to Roche Harbour. Back south over the hills... ... to Hidden Meadows, ... ... Schoolhouse Field, ... ... Friday West airstrip, ... ... and finally back into KFHR, Ernie´s Cafe for sure. In fact, KFHR is more like a PNG-like mini-region, with so many tiny airfields, villages and natural spots upgraded here. As mentioned, I buy the Orbx prduct for these little suprises, but this time I was really not expecting that many great views. My compliments!
  13. Grabbed it in the sale (along with a few other places) - just a couple of first impression shots - For me, this is a good indicator of how my life with a sim has improved lately. I remember starting up over Friday Harbour in FSX when I first got into this just a couple of years ago, and I always thought it looked a bit basic and unreal (and never mind the stutters and other problems I had). Now I've got P3D, all the Orbx stuff, proper weather and textures and a machine that doesn't annoy the hell out of me. And it really is a different world out there now. Fantastic!
  14. I should have gotten this plane a long, LONG time ago!
  15. A Café-racer is a type of motorcycle for daredevils, but in a way to compare with this out of proportion plane. The GeeBee is more like an engine with a couple of tiny wings attached on it. Not so difficult to get this machine in the air...but to land is another challenge: extremely difficult and I'm honest, not yet successful achieved;
  16. Happy New Year everyone, Enjoy these, and I will post the settings later today. I had to resize these pics as I run my sim in 4K Cheers,
  17. All I can say is...WOW! My first spin around this beauty. In the first bird I took the controls of in real aviation.
  18. Yesterday I removed my old desks and put the new ones in place. Everything up and running again but had to find new homes for the old furniture which has all taken a lot of time. Great fun assembling the new desks as there were no instructions. 1. Hop in the C-90 to try everything out. 2. Have set the auto pilot and heading so I don't know where I am going as usual. 3. 4. Ferry across The Mersey? 5. Passing a ferry near Spieden Island 6. Over Sidney and Victoria International CYYJ. 7. Looking back at Cowichan Bay. 8. Approaching Lake Cowichan. 9. Hill 60 Ridge. 10. The new set up. A massive improvement over the old one. Thanks Santa
  19. Thanks for the stunning work Russel & Crew !

  21. A flight around the island in the Cub, a much better pace to view the scenery. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. So much to see with at least 4 other airstrips to visit, maybe tomorrow.
  22. Been too busy at home today to do much flying so just had a quick flight from KFHR down to Roche Harbour. For those who are unaware, if you left click on the cap you will get a full screen and better quality. Just click on the arrows left or right of the cap to view the whole set. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12 Looks great scenery. I think my next flight will be in the Cub and I will brighten up the weather a bit. Another great scenery, many thanks for those involved. Hope you enjoyed looking.
  23. Welcome to Friday Harbor Airport and San Juan Island! It’s been a busy few months for Turbulent Designs, but we’re pleased to finally bring our biggest project yet to the quad installer! Friday Harbor has been a huge project, not just because of the HD airport quality, but also because of the huge photo real coverage area. That’s right!

Please keep in mind that these beta shots are of a product currently in development so can be subject to change over time. In other words, more can be added and improved. December 15th is closer! More shots from the Beta team imminently!
