I wasn´t able to post or comment here last week, as I have been out ouf my offices. Took a night flight out of Paris together with a colleague, so

a ) it was dark outside and

b ) we chose the middle seats,

so I can not share my usual documentation. But at least I can show you the descent over Jiangsu province...


Final towards the 35R, in usual visibility conditions.


No worries, we are safe.


Transfer to downtown - not as fast as the Maglev train, but better suited for this forum.


OK, here we get to the limits of the generic FSX landclass. Houses like in the US, but Shanghai would look totally different.


At least some POIs have been included, e. g. Jin Mao tower and the World Financial Center (the bottle opener, though wrong depicted). Pearl tower is way to small here.


The Westin Hotel, correct look, but totally misplaced (and there would be no baseball field in downtown Shanghai!). As you can see in the 2nd picture the hotel is not far from the Bund (coast), and there are entirely buildings of at least 5 storeys around.


So let´s proceed west to Hongqiao airport, and change to a copter for a short city commute.


Most travellers will walk to the bund on their first evening.



Quite some work, but also potential for OLC Asia. The additional challenge is the fast-changing POI landscape in these emerging countries. We´ll see...

super trip... great shots and liked your narrative.

And this is only a short part of the story.

Loved all your shots, but something special about shot number 2.  I am a sucker for those limited visibility shots.

OK, limited visibility is the standard in China. Thus you would like flying there...

Mind-blowing shots and trip! :)

And still we have to wait for a satisfying replication of Asia...

Top shots Gerold with some nice comparisons.

I wish they would hurry up with OLC Asia as I have nowhere else to fly:lol::lol::lol:

This is a little hope for me: I still have NZL on my HD and never tried it. Now its the season...

Indeed lots of work to be done in that area! Truly well captured!

First step would be the general impression. The POIs are changing too fast...
