  1. Getting ready with a speedy bird at beautiful Arlanda, ... ... and here we go, ... ... over Stockholm and the southeastern coast. The Norrköping bay, quite an industrial city with heavy ship traffic. This airfield is named "Saab". Which confuses me, I thought they were built at Trollhättan? Crossing the Vättern lake, ... ... and deep green fields. Well, in this hot & dry summer it surely looks different: Sweden has many bushfires this season. Turning in over Alingsäs.
  2. Noon in Whitehorse. Here we go... ... climbing over Lage Laberge. This is our routing as shown on Skyvector... ... and this is how it looks in PRO-ATC/X. Much simpler... So I head north and keep it this way... ... over the Canadian Tundra, ... ... until we leave the american mainland near Pearce Point. Greenland is unfortunately covered in clouds; the next land we see is Norway, near Trondheim. And here we are already reaching the Baltic Sea, ...
  3. A few from the past few months. Thoroughly enjoying P3D v4 all Orbx'ed up. Mostly OLC EU and SCA with a few airports thrown in.
  4. Carenado are starting to release upgrades for some of my stuff now - good to have this beauty back again! Did a tour round Crete. Looks great, but I'm not sure it's ever this green in real life. Only been there once but I remember it a bit dustier than this. But hey, no matter and I like a bit of lush. Too much fun!
  5. 1. The LAPE DC-2 taking off on rwy 10. 2. Passing the rather stylish terminal and apron. 3. I think the correct designation for the plane is the C-42. 4. At Durrango. 5. Skirting some thunder storms at Parroquia de Bidania mountain. 6. Passing the E7 at Canfranc. 7. Over the Monte Perdido National Park close to the Greenwich Meridian. 8. Staring the descent towards Seo de Urgel Airport. 9. The weather cleared when I turned off ASN as the clouds were hiding the scenery. ORBX weat
  6. My first flight for 3 months. The usual trouble upgrading Central in P3Dv2 but a look on the forums and the problem is quickly solved. Plenty of updating to do but made so easy with Central. So here we are at Bilbao and a first flight from there. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. Wonderful scenery with plenty to discover at LEBB and the surrounding area. Many thanks to Marcus and Philip for this wonderful scenery.
  7. 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 wit
  8. Inspired by a cooking show I watched at lunch time I thought I would do a flight from Corse or Corsica to us English speaking types. So I chose the Lufthansa A310 for the flight. 1. Getting ready at LFKJ Ajaccio Napoleon Bonaparte Airport. I like how the air bridges work, not bad at all eh. 2. Taking off over a very pleasant Mediterranean beach. 3. Great, got the GPS working so we can head off to the east. 4. Some very impressive mountainous scenery with Sardinia on the horizon. 5. Crossing the Tirrenean Sea approaching R
  9. From Lamezia Terme to Naples.
  10. I've just got it and I can't believe how OLC EU dramatically improved the landscape. A pleasure to look at. Happy new year to all my friends at Orbx!
  11. Current flights from Shanghai to Europe are day flights in total darkness, as they are to close to the polar regions. So I switched the calendar back to April for this report, also the RL evidences are from that month. After the usual delays and longish taxiing, takeoff in Pudong on 35R gets us already in the right direction. Just north of the airport land is still under development, no wonder the sim can not change as fast as reality. The landclass & textures of the agricultural areas near Yangtze river could be improved, I am sure this is n
  12. There are a group of German tourists waiting at Girona Airport. They have had a wonderful 2 weeks on the Costa Brava at Palamos but all good things must come to an end. My job is to fly them home to not so sunny Dusseldorf in my trusty Default 738 which is dressed in Condor colours. 1. There was a slight delay before take off as the album I was listening to had finished and I had to get the next one going. Cannot fly for such a long way without some music. 2. Above the Starboard wing tip is the town of Figures. I can still remember staying there in 19
  13. Every time I fly in or out of LDDU I always head north. This time I will go south to one of the FTX Global Freeware airports in Greece. 1. Very cloudy skies don't make for viewing the scenery. 2. Played God and changed the weather to something more akin to the Adriatic in summer. 3. Dubrovnik, wanted to get a shot including the old town next but some clouds got in the way. 4. The Bojana River with Sasko Jezero(lake) in the background. 5. From a distance I think it looks quite nice but it is called Lake Ohrid! (just below the
  14. I was lucky enough in 1991 to fly from Phuket to Sydney on a Lauda 763 and I must say their service ranked equal to the first class service I enjoy on SQ. Sadly the airline no longer exists in any form but I still have the memories of that wonderful flight. Being short on pilots they had to ask me to take one of their 737-800s on a charter from Klagenfurt to Schonefeld. 1. This is my first actual flight for 2 weeks using P3Dv2.4. I am slowly installing bits and pieces one at a time and testing each time in case there is a problem. Here we are lifting off from Kla
  15. I am still amazed just how good OLC is. Time to take the Dove for a spin, here from Horovice in the Czech Republic to Cottbus in Germany. 1. Just posing for some photos before departure. 2. Starting the take off run, the Dove isn't the most spritely of aircraft. 3. Heading for Germany at Trubska. 4. Hwy 5 at Kravlav Dvur 5. The Elbe River and the town of Usti nad Labem. 6. The sprawling village of Goldbach and hwy 6, now in Bavaria. 7. Hoyerswerder and made it into GEN. 8. The Blunoer Sudsee at Bl
  16. It just so happens that a lovery Lufthansa livery became available the other day. As I am spending most of my flying time in the region these days I decided to do a flight from FIX Global freeware EBLG to EDDI. 1. A standard take off from Liege with not a Rouche in sight. Football followers will understand. 2. Have not flown the CRJ for a while but looks great in the LH colours. The Meuse River at Amay. 3. Still in the Wallonia region at Combain au Pont with the Ourthe and the smaller Ambleve Rivers . 4. Nearly into GEN land at Meinerzhag
  17. A mega set of shots from a flight starting at Nice and ending at Dusseldorf. 1. Ready to depart for Dusseldorf with a plane load of happy holidaymakers returning north. Really looking forwards to Maurizio's Cote d'Azur. 2. A last look at The Med. 3. Over Italy near Chianale 4. Over Moncenicio. 5. Looking down the Maurienne Valley in France. 6. Mont Blanc. 7. Mont Blanc, a bit warmer in the cabin. 8. Now in Switzerland passing Geneva. 9. Another change of heading and a better
  18. A Lufthansa (default) 738 takes to the skies to fly from ESSA to EDDT. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7 8. 9. 10. A prefect flight, even the ILS worked a treat. Hope you enjoy.
  19. Without a doubt my favourite modern, if you can call something that made it's first flight in 1970 modern, military jet is the F-14. This is the freeware F-14 Designed by Dino Cattaneo. 1.. Taking off from EGUL Lakenheath. 2. Approaching Brandon but I don't know what these are! Never seen them on my Cessna 152. Reminds me of this great but scary song. 3. Not far from Norwich. 4. My first tentative manoeuvre over Taverham. 5. Don't know what it all does but we are flying helped by the variabl
  20. I like a challenge! So this is for Bernd. Weather not as good today. And I found a few repaints for the GeeBee, so I thought I'd try one of those out. So, let us begin . . . Whoo-hoo! A quick victory roll . . . And the masked marauder is off to seek out
  21. I like this beasty! And I even managed to figure out the autopilot once I'd left ESSA at the other end! There may be hope for me yet. Heading out from Heathrow, aiming for Schipol first. (some of these a bit dark, all 4k, best seen full screen) London in the distance Over the city now, heading out down the Thames Heading out past Southend, where I lived from 5 to 20 and sort of what I think of as my home town. You can just about make out the pier if you look closely. Coming in to Schipol
  22. One of those flights where I made it up as I went along. 1. Early in the morning departing from Nice. 2. Flying up the Gorge du Loup. 3. Not sure if the Jodel was meant for mountain climbing but it is performing very well. 4. Over the Gorges du Cianes. 5. Avoiding some stormy looking clouds around Mount Raton. 6. Spotted a crazy zig-zag road at Guillaumes with an interesting clear area on the centre right of the picture. 7. The commune of Sauze sits on top of the mountain although it is not depicted
  23. Please don't tell the boss in Hong Kong but I was too busy setting the AP and only just made it off the ground. 28. Hope you enjoyed the shots more that the passengers did the take off.
