Commuting to Cairns with Clouds

Recommended Posts

... in a plane with another C. Big enough to not only pick up some lawn mower parts in Australia, but also a whole hardware store (and it could even go on directy to KAVX...).

These DX10 clouds really add a new dimension to our trusty workhorse.

OK, all green mowers from QLD please be delivered to YBCS airport now, ready with export papers.

Super heavy trip, Gerold! :)

Well, there was just a drop of fuel on board, that makes it rather light...

Great set and a beast of a plane.

... and the lack of fuel makes it overpowered, too. Perhaps it is not a short distance commuter plane...

You're flying big belly Gerold, real nice shots again!

Sometimes you need to have a bit more space. Business class, you could say.

These shots are a cut above the rest Gerold.

I would not have to be pushed to get a ride on this flight:rolleyes::huh::lol:

The flight would have been ok for you. The next leg is the challenge, with a bunch of green lawn mowers up to Catalina, in order to make the scenery complete ;).

Is that green as in colour or green as in environmentally friendly?

If it is the latter hop over to New Zealand and pick up a few hundred mutton mowers, it is on the way to KAVX:mellow:

C-17?  Where did you get it Gerold?  Awesome shots!

This C-17 is the Virtavia version. Grabbed it on sale some months ago, can be used like a default plane but with much better looks.

I thought green would be the colour, but my memory was misleading, as can be seen from the pictures taken in Woitape, Fane and Kosipe:

So it must be the eco-friendly way, which undisputedly leads me to NZL first. Let´s see if I am faster than @Ken Hall...

Gerold, that's one of the coolest little Orbx gems I've ever seen!  Whod've ever thought they'd see a lawnmower in a flight sim?  I love it!  No wonder they needs lawnmower parts.

I would say the mower is Ken´s pride and joy, but maybe he can reveal the truth.

Well, he did a sweet job on it, and by the looks of it the people who live there keep the "tarmac" clean with it.  Gotta love the detail!  I love it!
