Hiya that looked great, was that stock scenery????

More or less, Paul. As indicated in this posts tags, the area is created by FTX Global, Vector, a Pilot´s mesh (see my spoiler below) and OLC_NA. The airports I landed are FSDT (PHNL, PHOG and PHKO.

Fabulous set Gerold and your views are so clear.

Is this P3D of FSX?

Wonderful scenery and a great selection of planes, hope you remembered your bucket and spade!

Thanks Martyn. FSX at its best, pimped by the maximum Orbx can give here. I am also very pleased.

All really nice Gerold and another great story well told.  It so reminded me of the FSX Hawaiian test flight mission, gosh do I miss that.

Thanks Jack. Indeed the old times when we discovered the mission were great. It marked the level of simming in 2006, really magnificent work by those folks.

That is a great series Gerold! :). It's really nice to see the different aircraft.

Gosh, with both you and Martyn giving locations, my geography knowledge is improving every day!

I don't know if my memory is fooling me, but wasn't Hawaii available as a floppy disk add on many moons ago?

Anyway, it looks like a nice warm place to visit! :D

Thanks Paul. Indeed this is the scenery taken more or less directly from the floppy disk. Just a bit pimped by maxing all sliders. Or so. ;)
