Boarding in Olbia, Sardegna. With a last view to the terminal.

Climbing out in the real weather conditions of November -

obviously I had to cheat with the simmed weather to get some views of the harbour...

... and the coast.

Heading westwards we reach Italy. This is just east of Salerno...

... and here we cross the tip of the Italian "boot": From Taranto to Brindisi.

Reaching Greece at Kerkira.

The Bay of Korinth from the western end (right) to the east (left). South of it is the Peloponnes, below us the greek mainland.

To the left you can see the "cut": The channel of Korinth. In anciend times ships were pulled over the rocky lands, but since 1893 the 6.4 km channel enables the shortcut, saving 325 km of sailing. Though, only for small ships: It was carved to a depth of 84 m into the rocks, resulting in a lockless but narrow seaway: The minimum width is about 21 m. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Corinth_Canal

Approaching Athens. You can already see Piraeus in the middle and Athens right in front of the mountains.

Around the corner at Vouliagmeni...

... over the Koropi quarry...

... and here we are: Athens Eleftherios Venizelos, opened on time for the 2004 Olympic games.

Nice`n easy! Fine trip. Only thing I missed was the on-board meal.

No onboard meal with EasyJet, sorry my friend :D!

Collezione meravigliosa, Geroldo - but the quarry is a golf course in OpenLC EU? :P

Hey Gerold. I agree with the Captain. This is a wonderful collection indeed. As always, thank you for anthologies that are both beautiful and informative. Always a first-class treat!

An amazing post Gerold, I thoroughly enjoyed looking at it along with the excellent narration.

So interesting to see the comparisons and OLC does a splendid job.

Excellent as always Gerold!  Gosh, you fly a lot!

Thank you Jack. My real life flying was the reason for posting here so rarely in the last weeks... but now I´m done with that, I can keep up exploring the recent purchases in the sim!

Yes Lars, it looks like that. I suggest this is still OpenLC, as the FlyTampa airport surrounding begins a bit later.

You are welcome Rodger. I mostly take the pictures when I see something interesting, and like to retrieve some information about these pictures later. Maybe the other way round would be better...:D!

Thank you Martyn. Indeed Vector is nearly errorless, and openLC has done quite a good job as well. It is an entire continent in one product - and therefore some POIs may be missing... but that feels ok :wub:
