  1. Two highlights in one shot: Calatrava´s Bilbao terminal, and the RealAir Lancair. I could not fly her in P3D for more than a year, as the sim always crashed when I started the autopilot. I don´t know what has changed in the meantime, but like a miracle this fantastic plane works again! And this city scenery makes me smile even more. What more does a sim need? Leaving Bilbao... ... over some small coastal hills... ... to San Sebastian. From here we turn towards the mountains, across Oloron...
  2. Today we start from Gibraltar, ... ... leave Algeciras behind ... ... and climb out looking at the Costa del Sol. Our destination is in Euskadi (Basque), ... ... and the motorway AP-8 is our navigation aid ... ... into misty scenery. Looks like these are IFR conditions, ... ... but at least we can find Bilbao. Another Calatrava terminal, what a beauty.
  3. Under the nose of the Cessna is the Society Aardolie gas complex an a small village of Langelo in Noordenveld region of the Netherlands. The village can be traced back to 1255 when it was called Langel and over the years has changed it's name to Langeloe then Langeloo finally to it's present name.
  4. ... and this is not a long distance flight! We go from Madeira, Portugal, ... ... climbing out over the Ilheu da Cevada ... ... with a little encounter over the Atlantic ... ... towards Tanger, Morocco, Africa. Looks really great in the sim... ... as it did in one of my books. This aerial was taken 1931 from a Zeppelin. Spain, Europe, awaits on the other side of Gibraltar strait. Tricky is the visual final into Gibraltar (British territory) airport, ... ... but manageable, this time.
  5. Taking off on the international airport of Gran Canaria is no problem at all, with beautiful views of Las Palmas for those passengers sitting on the left. But when you descend just half an hour later over the Islas Desertas... ... and get into Madeira, then you face one of the most challenging approaches in Europe. Curved finals onto a platform significantly higher than the ground (sea) level around. Made it. I am sure the paxes are glad to leave the steel tube safely. This flight is at the borderlines of OLC Africa and Europ
  6. I bought the Stearman in the recent sale at GAS and I love it. For me one of the stand outs is the excellent sound set of the Continental R670 radial. Music to the ears and no distortion at all. Getting ready to fly with the speakers volume cranked up! Here it is leaving Goodwood at the circuit's St Mary's corner. Infamous for where the great Stirling Moss ended his motor racing carrier back in 1962 when his Lotus left the track and hit an embankment critically injuring him.
  7. After a short stopover at Abidjan I got the next airliner ready. Here we went. The lagoon makes it a really interesting location, ... ... and the city looks realistic as well. Great lakes in the West African countries, like the Lac de Kossou, Ivory Coast. We turned westwards, ... ... over bamako, Mali, where the desert already greets, ... ... then up to Mauritania. Not much to see here. Except the Guelb er Richat, the "Eye of Africa". I think it could be seen better from space, b
  8. ANother recent buy is the Aeroplane Heaven MS.893 Rallye. I have had my eye on it for a while and was very happy to see it available as one of the Orbx partners. On my first flight from Popham to Goodwood. Crossing the A3 Portsmouth Road just south of Petersfield which is by the port wingtip.
  9. I felt it was time to return to the northern side of our disk, so I took a 777 out of FVFA Victoria Falls. No doubt why the airport got this name. Climbing out with the Sambesi river in the background. Hours later, at Luanda/Angola, we reach the Atlantic coast. And some more hours further we make landfall again near Ghana. Preparing for a little stopover and heading downwind over the Abidjan lagoon... ... and into DIAP airport. Beautiful location! Plus a comfortable landing, luck
  10. Luckily the Beech 1900 waiting for my flight is in far better condition than the rusty old tank.
  11. A view of one of the ships from Henrik Nielsen's Classic collection sailing toward Hamburg on the Elbe. Just one of the many reasons I am keeping my P3D sim going!
  12. A pair of views at Tweed Heads in NSW right on the border with Queensland.
  13. I think (or hope) South African Airways still serve regional flights, for example out of Jo´burg... ... and over Botsuana. It could be a good option to visit the Okavango Delta from here... ... but as the new scenery is not available in P3D, I went on to the Victoria Falls. Can you spot them in the background? I´ll park at FVFA for some hours, so that you can visit the falls!
  14. Relative wilderness in this case. From Kruger Mpumalanga... ... along the R37 to Sabie, ... ... and over Long Tom Pass. Followed the road over Mashishing and eMakhazeni to the outskirts of Johannesburg. O. R. Tambo airport ahead, ... ... and below. FAOR requires payware, as it is only very basic in default P3D...
  15. I downloaded the Aeroworx freeware airstrips on avsim and did a little tour between various safari resorts in Kruger NP. Took off from Hoedspruit FAHS, ... ... flew over the Kapama Game Reserve (spotting no animals), ... ... to AW50 Inyathi. Not really working. The next one is Singita AW52. May be usable, but not immpressive. Read a little review here, if you are interested in luxury travel: https://onemileatatime.com/singita-safari/ Othawa AW51 has not much more to show, but at least a little. Chitwa Safari Lodge, ...
  16. Passing over the Inland Empire Paper Company wood mill at Millwood! Where is it? You can see part of KSFF top left.
  17. A very pleasant ride along the Gold Coast in the Fleet 16.
  18. I have installed FSimStudios Calgary (CYYC) Scenery. In the description in store it says a few tweaks needed to Orbx NRM. I have Orbx NRM running on P3Dv4 but can't find the "tweaks" listed mentioned listed anywhere. I have turned off a couple of the NRM CYYC BGL files which has removed most of my issues. I have turned off the following files to make FSimStudios CYYC work with Orbx NRM ADE_FTX_NRM_CYYC_Calgary_Intl ADE_FTX_NRM_CYYC_Calgary_Intl_CVX However I still have cars and trucks driving up and down taxiway Bravo. Does anyone know what I have to do t
  19. Coming from FADS Hoedspruit we climb over Moholoholo Animal Rehab center https://www.moholoholo.co.za/ ... ... up to the northern Drakensbergs... ... just behind the Three Rondavels. No, Martyn, this is not a Circus artist group, it means 3 hills looking like the local traditional round houses. You can imagine this if you watch the scenery from Lowveld Lookout. Next to the creek down there are the Bourke´s Luck Potholes, unfortunately not to be seen in the sim. And the Lisbon River should begin at the falls of the same name.
  20. After an intermediate stop at Ladysmith we choose the right plane, obviously, as we can see in the background. Following the long roads (namely the N4) in South Africas mainland lead us to eMakhazeni. After turning north we reach Ohrigstad, ... ... pass the Three Rondavels at the top end of the Panorama Route, ... ... and cross Balule Nature Reserve... ... on the approach to Hoedspruit. Interesting view, ... let us see what the tourists discover tomorrow!
  21. Another wonderful plane is the A2A P-40. It is directly over Liberty Lake, WA which is why you cannot see it as at 1.7 miles (276,133.16cm for Gerold!) long, it is not too large! An excellent plane, many thanks to A2A for making it freeware.
  22. Yes it is both. The Brunner-Winkle Bird from the late 20s. A delightful little plane to fly. Incase you were wondering, it has just take off from Fairoaks.
  23. The excellent Virtavia Consolidated C-87 on a flight from Berlin Tegel to Malmo, here passing Furstenberg Havel in the Brandenburg State of Germany. The C-87 was a transport version of the B-24 Liberator and 287 were built. A very unpopular aircraft with it's crews and had numerous performance, handling vices as well as unreliable hydraulics along with the leaking fuel systems. At least 150 were lost in accidents.
  24. The excellent freeware Zlin142 departing Berlin Tegel.
  25. Two recent flights that have resulted in the dreaded wheels up landings. I had flown around the island of Oahu and despite me dropping the gear, which the replay showed, it immediately retracted. The result was a perfect landing, much smoother that I usually manage with the wheels down! More comfortable for the passengers but an expensive event for the planes owners. It does also save money by not having to sent the stairs out as the passengers can step straight onto terra firma! The other type is with a fixed gear plane where the wheels point up to the sky. H
