  1. Getting ready at Sonny Bono Airport for a trip to the coast, once again with AS16 real weather - and hoping for californian sun... This is what I call a blurry VC, as already reported I have this impression since I changed from 4.1 to 4.3. I must try to change some settings (which I did not change actively)... At least we can get her in the air and leave Palm Springs with nice views. Passing the San Gabriel mountains... ... before entering thick overcast on descend. Again. These coastal clouds are a pain! While I was carefully descending, ATC announced a change of runway, just to increase my stress level a bit. I was not even able to capture a shot of the milk outside - just in the final seconds the runway came into view: Full brakes... ... and here we are, ready for some crab dinner at Cannery Road. But where is the sunshine?
  2. ... for a little lift from Monterey... ... over San Francisco Bay... ... to Half Moon Bay. Please proceed to the terminal. Now what should I do: Stay for a coffee or take the car?
  3. Up the coast from foggy San Diego (I had to cheat with the weather after takeoff ) ... ... over Carlsbad, ... ... and climbing into the San Jacinto mountains. Here we roll down into Palm Springs. I have the impression that my settings (especially the VC) got a bit blurry with the change to p3d 4.3 - though the setting is still on 4096. Anyone got an idea to modify the sharpness (be it in p3d itself or in nvidia)?
  4. Ready to move further westwards, to discover some of the orbx airports I have purchased since my last virtual west coast stay. This is the plane we are going to use, seen from the coffee bar in the United lounge at Houston terminal E: Cockpit preparations. Hurray! Just compare the registration of the PMDG bird with the real one above. We are serious simmers, aren´t we? A view over Houston, from the international airport to CBD. Texas in green. The cockpit in nice. Arizona in brown. Imperial Dunes, while already descending. The Gulf of California to the left... ... and the Pacific ahead, at the same time. Here you can see the use of freshwater in California. And here you can see... the visibility during final approach. A pleasure to all pilots... There is no vertical guidance on this approach, and the clouds just opened seconds before landing. So I was waytoohigh and had to pull the brakes... Made it. Then overheated the brakes, which caused blocking... so there is no gate screenie today.
  5. Hello, guys! Today was a flight to the beautiful places around the Kern Valley...
  6. Hello everyone. Today in Big Bear City Airport (L35)...
  7. Another marvel sceney to discover in California not far from the coast of LA: Back to my plane for returning to mainland
  8. Just a few snaps over Riverside and San Bernardino area enroute from AJO to VGT Nick
  9. Little VFR under the cover around Long Beach and Orange County. Nick
  10. West to east was done in the P-51. East to west was started in the C172, had a couple of legs done in the C182, but mostly by Comanche, hopping via freeware airports. This is the last leg: Morongo Resort Shut down on Santa Catalina Island My next mission is up the west coast, via Orbx airports of course.
  11. Little getaway to the mountains of Socal. Santa Barbara (SBA) to Big Bear (L35). Enjoy!
  12. So, off to test my theory about flying blind in the C-130. Heading off from KPSP - "ain't got no distractions, can't hear no buzzers and bells" (think "Pinball Wizard"). Never knew what most of that stuff did, anyway <grin> I've turned round now, and going to head up the valley If you view this full size and zoom in you'll see the dinos just down below the tail Up past San Bernadino Across the hills and coming in over Anaheim And coming in now to Long Beach (KLGB) Not sure what's happened to my textures around here And down OK, I cheated a bit at the end and overran a bit, then slewed back, but all in all I was happy with that. I have Little Nav Map running on a secondary 19" monitor and that gives me speeds, altitude etc and I can get away with that, so I feel I've got my Herc back!
  13. Short little hop to the hills for some weekend outdoor time. Santa Barbara, CA to Kern Valley, CA
  14. LAX to Narita for an Xmas arrival: Leaving the basin Leaving the mainland for the loooong haul across the water. Just south of KMRY. Water, obviously Clouds (and more water) Chasing the sun. Sunset. It was there right up until top of descent. By the time I'd lost 7 miles it was gone, and visibility was down to 3 miles. Did this once in the MD-11. One day I might actually fly back. Next up on this trip is Singapore on SQ11. Soooo nice to not have to consider minor irritants like VAS after virtual 12 hours. Merry Xmas all.
  15. Left Oceano for a few practice instrument approaches into Santa Barbara runway 7 with a circle to land on 15R to finish it off. Enjoy
  16. Little one hour jaunt from Torrance (KTOA) to Palm Springs (KPSP). Can't do that in a car. Enjoy! Nick
  17. Captured in natural habitats thanks to orbx.
  18. The popular "Coastal" transition at 500ft, to the "Channel" transition at 800ft over the bay, then back over the top of SAN in the "Taxiway Delta" Transition at 1500ft. Enjoy!
  19. Had a strange craving to take a 5hr jaunt down to Baja California in a Cessna. Carlsbad McClellan-Palomar (KCRQ) to Loreto (MMLT) Enjoy!
  20. 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.
  21. I was flying around the San Diego area in SCA and thought of an airfield that would be a really nice addition to the sim, if anyone from the Orbx team or an enterprising freeware designer had any interest. In the northern bit of La Jolla, close to USCD, there is a little airfield on the cliffs overlooking the ocean used by ultralights and hang gliders. It has a nice café where you can hang out and watch the ocean or the flying activity. The SCA photoscenery even captures it: You can see the hang gliders, the parking lot and the café just ahead of the nose of my Cessna. What do you think? Misha
  22. One from my recent round of purchases at the Alabeo sale. The DA42 coming out of the hills into Bakersfield, aiming for KBFL Lovely little beast, don't know why I've never bought it before now. And I have a question for you all - when this came out I remember seeing pix of it in a really rather splendid paint job, sort of midnight blue rear end covered in little (white/silver?) stars, very "Elvis has left the hangar". I've been hunting around for repaints but can't see that anywhere - does it ring bells with anyone?
  23. Been file fiddling for weeks, but finally approaching the point I can begin to actually take a few flights. Been at the freeware sources again (as well as the Alabeo sale and the regular Virtavia/Razbam sales - but that's another story) so here's a big yellow beastie for Jack. Are you ready? - "this is Kaptain Krusty welcoming you on board . . ." (just down there in the middle of the shot are my favourite dinos) "Moe has now opened the bar on the upper deck" Got about 30 other lairy paint jobs for this as well. Makes a change from the Legacy!
  24. Little test run for the new GTN. Real world conditions today provided the necessity. Enjoy! Thanks for viewing. Nick
