Leaving Barcelona I had a good view of the tower... ... and found @Captain Lars just ahead of me. I had to wait for his huge wake before I could get off... ... on the initial SID towards the sea... ... and then westwards. Over the countryside, into dawn and clouds... ... and towards the Bay of Biscay. Fantastic visibility. At least ILS helps. Safe. Looks unique here... But the jetways really are not perfectly placed...
I did not post much in the last 4 weeks. Instead, I was collecting pictures of (14) real life flights in southern Europe, basically Greece and Spain. And now I can enjoy repeating these flights in the sim - and sharing some of the pleasure with you. Let us start with some views taken during flights from Munich to Barcelona. Climbing out westwards over the Isar river. Fürstenfeldbruck airfield, with Starnberger and Ammersee in the background. The Bodensee = Lake Constance. Crossing the alps with a view of the Mont Blanc massiv, ... ... towards Marseille, where we reach the Mediterranean Sea. Shortly after we begin the descend in front of the pyrenees... ... until Barcelona comes into view. Though the second real flight was also sold as Lufthansa, it was executed by Air Dolomiti. If they knew this would cause confusion to the Orbx forum community watching this post... The tank area of the harbour, ... ... the mole, ... ... logistics in El Prat, ... ... and the Llobregat river. Here we are. Amazing how realistic the city looks in the sim. Though... I have to admit it took about 10 minutes for my computer to load all the autogen of the city. Sceneries (and planes) like these will force me upgrade my rig, at some day in the not-so-near-future, I hope.
Before everyone´s aiming at SoCal, I move on southwards from Nice,... ... passing Cannes, ... ... and arriving at the Catalunya coast. Passing Barcelona downtown... ... towards the 25R: Looks sunny enough. And I will repeat this flight when the Cote d´Azur citscape is out!
