Flying the F4 over the Fens

Recommended Posts

An exercise in alliteration! :D

 

I've always liked the "cute brutishness" of the F-4. Like the MiG-21 ... they look like they mean business! Wonderfully noisy too! Here' are five taken around Lincolnshire - TEGB in XP11:

... and finally ... my favourite:

A default XP11 aircraft with some freebie livieries I found.

The Fens remind me of parts of Holland - sea level with tall grass.  They certainly look soggy in your shots

Amazing plane over cool scenery.  This plane still looks awesome!  I wish they would bring back these planes but newly built with state of the art cockpits.

Great shots, Adam ! 

 

I have never seen XP water textures look better.  Usually looks like carpet with a regular repeating pattern.  Must be some .org add-on, right ?

No shots taken at the time, but the TE area around the fens proper looked exactly as you say. My first flights ever (as a young cadet) were from RAF Coningsby, so that landscape is full of warm memories.

I haven't given the default XP aircraft the attention they deserve.

 

Some of them are really not bad at all! Even the B737 is quite good (!).

The add-on is FlyAGI - but even that only enhances water at certain heights. #1 was a bit of a fluke. #5 (the last one) is pure ORBX photoreal - no add-on required!

Despite my best efforts I can't locate the freebie repaint.

If possible, could you provide a link?

 

I got three RAF liveries from x-plane.org ... but I had to do a fair bit of jiggery pokery to make them work. PM me for more info!

 

... and to everyone else .. thank you for the kind comments!!!

 

Adam.
