  1. Continuing my New Zealand tour, thanks to the ORBX sale. A flight in the Turbine Duke, from Gisborne to Whangarei...that was a mouthful. Enjoy!
  2. Thanks to the sale, I was able to complete my NZ collection. Here is a set from the newly acquired Queenstown, to an old favorite, Milford Sound. Enjoy!
  3. First flight in the Bo; she's a keeper!
  4. Just a very quick test flight out of KOAK. Finally coming to grips with this absolute beauty of an aircraft, and I'm still tweaking the P3Dv4 settings. Gonna need a new PC for all the real eye candy.
  5. Would "REX Texture Direct" affect or change the scenery objects of ORBX Global? Regards, Michael.
  6. Sometimes I like to stick a pin in the map and head somewhere at random... this morning it was Albania. Thanks for looking...
  7. THE WINTER!
  8. Thanks for viewing-
  9. Flying with a friend,using JoinFS !
  10. Hi, just one unedited shot in FSX out of Catalina. The only thing I did to the shot was to sign it and put a frame around it. I do love what REX has done with the clouds, there is no popcorn effect and the shadows are natural.
  11. Hi, If you don’t know what to add to your collection of airports, here is one suggestion before the Orbx 50% sale ends : KBLU Blue-Canyon Nyack. The following pictures show a flight from KBLU to Limberlost Ranch (CA21) then to Gansner Field (201). Landing and taking-off from Limberlost Ranch is a nice challenge and lots of fun! For this flight with FSX, I used the Carenado Cessna C-207 equipped with bush tires and REX clouds. Airborne from KBLU. Enroute from KBLU (5284 ft asl) to Limberlost Ranch and it’s 1700 ft grass runway (1650 ft asl and about 23 nm east of KBLU), you pass by the Nevada County airport (O17) that has also received a special treatment from Orbx. It might be necessary to fly over the Limberlost Ranch before starting an approach, so that you have an idea of what to expect on final. Limberlost Ranch has a sloped runway (in fact, a multiple slopes runway). Part of it is asphalted, but most of it is grass. You make the approach for the grass section. Note that there is a fence on the side at the beginning of the runway. The aircraft should not touch the field before it has passed the fence (for more realism and a nicer challenge). Taking-off is also a lot of fun as the aircraft feels really sloppy (and I mean it) and behaves more like a boat than a plane during the acceleration to get airborne. A bit of flaps is required as it is the norm for soft airfield operations. Careful but essential use of the rudder will also make your take-off a success. Enroute to Gansner Field. Gansner Field is about 41 nm north of KBLU. It is very well made and nestled in a valley. Coming in from KBLU, you need to pass 6000 ft mountains before diving for that 3419 ft asl asphalt runway. You will finally be able to put your aircraft in the hangar for the night, or park temporarily in a zone where a mechanic is available if you need any minor repairs in order to continue your flight. Have fun and good luck at Limberlost Ranch!
  12. Hi, I decided to test San Diego International with the PMDG MD-11, which is quite demanding when it comes to FPS. I did not expect fantastic results, I just hoped it would work and it did. So here are a few shots of the arrival of a Lufthansa MD-11 in the evening... I am very happy with the scenery of that airport. Great buildings, lots of things to see but, with the MD-11 on final, it was not exactly time for an extended sightseeing... With 50 degree of flaps, it lands like a Cessna 150. Well, almost...! There was nice AI activity that night, with another aircraft on final and few aircrafts taxiing. I even had to wait in order to avoid contact with a big carrier. Finally one last view of the airport before I explore the area with something smaller. But since I heard that somebody would create San Diego International, I had promised myself that I would fly the MD-11 in there to test if it was still flyable with todays sceneries. And it sure is! Cheers!
  13. Hi, After a few years being stored in the hangar, it was time to fly this X-22A again. The pilots cannot be seen (old model, old files) but it's still fun (and touchy) to fly. The props are adjusted with F5 and F6 and you also have to play with the throttle. Time to explore the wilderness of Bar Harbor! Now heading to Block Island. Cheers!
  14. Hi, The screen captures represent a short flight from Eagle County airport (KEGE) to Telluride (KTEX). All shots are unedited and in FSX. The flight was made during the winter season, on January 8. There are lots of beautiful mountains between KEGE and Telluride, and also some unpredictable weather… The expected ceiling at Telluride was 8500 ft. On the way to the airport, the clouds and visibility were sometimes obscuring the mountains. Telluride is a very inviting airport for a MD-11. The 7000 feet runway itself does not represent a big challenge, although its 100 feet are a bit narrow: this aircraft would normally require a 150 feet wide landing surface. The virtual VFR approach made with the MD-11 was the most expensive way to do the trip, since it required a fly-by and a 270 degree turn to the right to align with runway 09. The 270 degree turn at a 10-20 degree bank allowed to transit from 14,000 to 10,000 ft without doing anything radical. Just a turn while descending and gradually loosing speed to arrive at around 160 kts on final. The aircraft was now installed on long final, with flaps set at 50 degrees. The runway’s 9078 feet msl elevation meant the pilots dealt with lower air density when approaching and, as such, the airspeed had to be adjusted accordingly to prevent stalling on final. Here is a view from the Telluride tower… Now with a view like that, you would not consider coming in IFR…! To prevent an overshoot and some additional expenses in fuel (which are already skyrocketing), an optimal approach was required. Most accidents with the MD-11 happen when the pilot pushes on the stick when there is a rebound with the nose wheel, thus creating an even stronger rebound. When there is a rebound, there is no need to push on the stick, just wait and the aircraft sets itself quickly. Now with max breaking and thrust reversers… The MD-11 can easily turn at the first taxiway at Telluride. But in order to capture a wider view of the airport, I exited at the last taxiway (again adding to the already enormous expense in fuel…) The employee on the ramp was worried that the MD-11 lower winglet would scratch N900SS while taxiing. But there was plenty of space (11 inches)... The MD-11 was parked temporarily in a spot needed by every aircraft. It was necessary to unload quickly the precious cargo and get out of the way. Some expert handling would be needed to help move back that MD-11 close to the runway. But that was the Telluride’s airport manager problem and he had promised he would have something ready! Cheers!

  15. After many years of postponing I decided to make a flight around whole world and learn to flight in FSX as much as possible. I decided to start with sightseeing flight around Europe. Plan is to land on 87 airports in Europe with my Cessna. During the flights I capture screenshots when I have some nice view.
