  1. Here we have 34°C today. So I went virtually out to Yakutat, which looks a bit cooler on this summer day. Good that there is no Fly-and-MosquitoFlow over Alsek River. And the glacier with the same name looks like a welcomed refreshment. Directly afterwards we cross Grand Pacific Glacier. The peak to our right is Mt. Fairweather. Indeed, it looks fair here. Descending over Takhin Glacier... ... and over Haines... ... into the Skagway channel... ... and into the namegiving village.
  2. Some flight enthusaists had hired a vintage plane in Valdez for a scenic flight. And the views would not disappoint them. Already at takeoff towards the city, ... ... or whilst turning south to the oil terminal. No hikers around Allison Lake? So we better look back at Valdez, the airport and the hills behind. Following Richardson highway at Robe Lake, ... ... with a view back to Valdez Bay. Just a great piece of work by the Orbx team. I wonder if this field is covered with snow in colder seasons?
  3. Out of Anchorage I took a plane with multiple landing options, you never know what happens up here. A slight cloud layer over the big city. Not longer a slight cloud layer over Chugach channel... ... on the way to Portage Lake... ... and Whittier. Harriman Glacier (and its neighbours) show up in the north. There was no real visibility during the remaining flight, so the next option to see scenery was on the descend... ... well controlled... ... into Vldez.
  4. Not Fahrenheit, as you will soon discover. For this flight i took a plane which did not really fit on the gate positions at Kiruna. But it was no problem to get the 777 taking off on the runway. As touristic travel into US is still forbidden, there were only 3 pilots and 3 businessmen on board. To make it valuable, the 777 was loaded up to the roof with Swedish chocolate, Lakritz and Schnaps. Kiruna is already quite far at the northern end of Sweden. And todays heading was still further north, initially towards Norway´s fjords...
  5. ... and to collect any prize. It has been quite some time since I had been invited to Alaska. And I could not resist. No more comments needed, since this is just the final into Valdez. Now it´s time to unload steaks and beer, get it all to the right temperature and learn from the the Mule Team.
  6. Leaving Homer PAHO Finally arriving at Whittier
  7. PAJN - PAYA in the QW 757 at dawn. Climing out of PAJN on the Asort Two departure. Turning Final on the ILS 11 at PAYA Short Final All ready to unload and all in time to watch the sunrise.
  8. A windy approach in dense fog and snow down over the infamous Tongrass Narrows into RW11 at PAKT Ketchikan International. P3DV4.5 | ORBX SAK & PAKT | REX SF 3D | QW 757 Into the soup... Down safe and sound. Now for the heavy lifting to begin.... someone must have gone ham in the boxing day sales!
  9. Hello, guys! Today small vintage over Alaska.
  10. Some various shots from around the PNW, SAK and Norway. Departing Oslo in some miserable weather. Approaching KESE Eagle County Regional. High above KASE. High altitude visibility flying from PAVD to PAJN. Petersburg Harbor, Tongass Fjords.
  11. Just a few random shots from my P3D v4 Screenshot folder.
  12. A true Alaska Airlines service from Yakutat... ... taking off the summer runway southwards over the Pacific... ... and turning 180° to the right in order to head north. Climbing, climbing, climbing, across Hubbard Glacier... ... into beautiful Summer weather. Not easy to get this plane up to 12500 ft. Which were needed to come across to Kaskawulsh Glacier, Canada. Descending and relaxing the pressure on the engines, towards Burwash Lake... ... and Haines Junction.
  13. I cannot translate the German wisdom of freight pilots into english, maybe google can help you?! I just had to reach colder climate for some days. So I agreed to the request of FedEx to bring some huge fishing equipment northwards from Vancouver. We met at the FedEx station, ... ... and prepared for the flight whilst the freight was stowed. The unusual (short) runway 30 was selected by ATC. I was slightly panicking and apllied full power, but all went well and lead us directly north... ... across Nanaimo, ...
  14. Departing ANC to Hong Kong at dusk. Off 33, cleaned up and turning west. Sunrise over the Bering Sea or thereabouts This is about as high as the sun got. As I arced south, down through China, it slipped below the horizon again and I arrived in darkness. The height of my daylight over far eastern Russia So a second first in two days... my first sunrise in the west. I'm sure the regular long haul tube drivers see it a lot.
  15. I left Taipei at 2am, hauling freight to Anchorage on CI 5398 in the trusty 747 freighter. First time I think I've even seen a sunrise and sunset in the same flight. These are a few from the latter stages, since the rest was dark and/or over water: This is me getting (very) side tracked on my way from Tokyo to Singapore... At this rate I'll find myself at SFO next before heading across the Pacific again!
  16. Greetings! 1st post here...latecomer to the Orbx scene. Bought a bunch of stuff over the great holiday sale, most worked fine (KTEX, KJAC, etc) Also purchased SAK and Juneau. I installed SAK 1st, then Juneau...getting issues in screens below. Did some forum searches, tried a link with the ADE_FTX_SAK_PAJN_elevation_adjustment.BGL..no luck. uninstalled both SAK and PAJN, then reinstalled in that order, no luck. Did not manually delete any files. I do NOT have vector. Please refer to the listings screens of all the *PAJN*.BGL files on my system. 4790k T
  17. Hi, I have recently updated to FTX Cv3 and installed all available updates like ORBX libraries and scenery updates. Now there's a glitch in the airport ground elevation, see screenshot (@ PAHO). How can I fix this? Jules.
  18. That means doing a long ride from Anchorage... ... to Honolulu. Just some memories for Sniper. Hit the spot. Great to see the Alaskan cargo has been safely stowed in the trusty 772. Maybe the next flight offers the chance to use a more colorful bird.
  19. Yesterday I was leaving Valdez towards a bigger airport, being able to catch an overseas flight, and I chose a properly coloured plane, ... ... but how could I know that the original yellow flash was already around there?
  20. As you know me, I always check recent purchases with "low&slow" tools. Some great sights in Valdez, indeed. And changing to yellow...
  21. Time for boarding, you can easily read where. And here is the solution to my last "where am I" quiz, I was long discussing this with our friend @Neptune6: PAGS Gustavus beyond. Mt. Fairweather ... ... and the complete Glacier Bay NP. And finally approaching Valdez, another recent purchase of mine.
