Aeroplane Heaven have, as you all know, just released the Helldiver. I was very pleased when I visited their site to see that the F3F was included in a special deal when you brought the Helldiver.

So I treated myself to a little Easter present and here is the start of my first flight in it.

 

1.ks1.jpg

I don't know too much about this plane but an important thing for me is that it will start with Ctrl+E and it has a GPS.


2.ks2.jpg

Along with that is a pretty convincing Wright R-1820 sound set.


3.ks3.jpg

Another good thing is that I have got my AI traffic running again but I expect you noticed that already.


4.ks4.jpg

Plenty of things to look at in the harbour here.


5.ks5.jpg

Some excellent ships here.


6.ks6.jpg

There is even the Coronado Bridge that I have to fly under, be daring and don't choose the wide middle spans, unless you are in a 747 or the like.


7.ks7.jpg

More beautifully done cargo vessels flash past.


8.ks8.jpg

A very impressive city scape here too.


9.ks9.jpg

Now to the Naval Dockyard. No itchy trigger fingers please.

So it is onwards to Ensenada in Mexico.

Nice shots KDK in a zipper of a plane.

What traffic pack are you using?

cheers

Gumby

Thanks Gumby, I am using My Traffic 6 with P3Dv2.4.

Just checked and it only is good up to v2.5, no mention of v3.

This is a grand little plane too. I am making my way down the Baja Peninsular in it and thoroughly enjoying myself.

Fantastic presentation of San Diego and your newest plane collection addition, Martyn. Indeed hangar area must be cheap in Mooroopna.

I was sure you do the bridge. But the 747 suggestion rings a bell...

Look superb. Both the low sets over the water and that chubby ancestor of world beater naval aircraft!

 

I have to ask. Did you get the ship traffic in the traffic sets you mentioned or is it something else? I don't have any of the Navy destroyers docked in my version of KSAN.

Lovely shots, Martyn! And isn't the barrel a bunch of fun! I grabbed this a few weeks back and absolutely love it. Wonderful noise it makes, and it just leaps off the ground in no time at all (don't know how realistic that is, don't really know much about the real aircraft's characteristics but it was quite powerful and it's got a lot of wing so maybe). And even I can land it accurately most times.

Everything is cheap and cold in Mooroopna. Too much ice:huh:!

Who can it be now???? A certain man may soon be at work!

Thanks John, as far as I can remember the only shipping I have installed is the RTMM one which I don't think comes this far south.

Another nice plane as well Martyn.  AH is working on a C-46 Commando as you probably know. :)   Excellent set of captures! :)

Cheers Adam and that C-46 is looking good. Going through their site I was surprised just how many top quality planes they have done for JustFlight. I see that a VC-10 is also under  development by them, yay:)

This plane is a blast Andy and as you say it shoots into the air so easily. I am like you and am not sure how accurate this is. My Virtavia He111 is the same, a shorter take off run than the Storch, might have to fit it with lead wheels to keep it on the ground longer!

The sound of the F3F is brilliant and what a fine start up noise too.

 

Well thanks to you all for your wonderful comments and interest.
