A hop in the DC-8


Recommended Posts

When I saw the first one I said WHOA!  Very cool.  They're all outstanding shots.  I remember flying on one of these old birds and seeing them all the time where I grew up, only a literal stone's throw from KBOS.  Love the smoke and noise back then.

Excellent set.

Orbx North ( & South Island), continue to amaze me with their geographical fidelity.

I can recognize places from when I lived in Wellington.

 

Shot 2 - Heading North East, over Evans Bay, with Mt Victoria to the left.

Shot 3 - Swinging left, Ngauranga Gorge below.

Shot 4 - Leaving Porirua behind. Back behind the rudder is Wellington Harbor.

Shot 5 -  Titahi Bay to the left, Paremata & Whitby to the right, & way in the distance is Kapiti Island.

& then we have Mt Egmont in the next 3 shots.

Spot on! My place is a little bit up from the right wing in shot 5. Amazing scenery. 

 

Thanks for the the kind words all!
