... but a long post this will be, as the RL comparison doubles the number of shots. My apologies.

 

Boarding in Thessaloniki...

... and noting a little difference in the houses on the apron. The real flowers have a certain style.

Crossing Athens LGAV. Obviously the RL pilot had a shortcut, bringing the waypoint to the right side of the plane.

Sifnos, ...

... and Dia Island, just north of Heraklion.

The published approach is a long curve to the east, but the local pilot also got a sporty shortcut here.

I love these your trips, all stuffed with comparisons-pics.
Sometimes I get confused for a while not distinguishing what is real and what is fiction! LoL

Great shots for sure!

Indeed, the RL pictures sometimes are of bad quality - which compensates some blurry photoscenery. All these airlines do not clean their windows properly enough for us!

Wow!  Very nicely done and clever to use real and sim shots!  What a cool idea.

I've been to all those islands, it was one of the most beautiul places I've been to.

I envy that, having been to only a few of those.

You should add this area to you travel plans. But I know there is already something scheduled.

Great shots of Aegean tour... enjoyed these

I could not decide which flight was more enjoyment, sim or RL. RL means real holiday, but the seat is better at the sim...

Magnificent flight report! The comparison is almost 100% matched.

Indeed, some shots shot a surprising match.

Top post jet setting Gerold.

Amazing just how close the FS and RL shots at the airports are.

Very enjoyable.

Ok, I had to add a bit of extra scenery for the airports. And if you compare the current FTXG environment with "default" you see how much the game has changed.

 

Thank you all for your kind comments!
