Hoping you will like the story  - Do not hesitate to leave any comments :-)  They are very encouraging !

 

 

 

The next parts (4 to 9) will go through the all Canadian Artic Land ... upto Alaska ... and Chukotka (NE Siberia) - meeting inuit native peoples all along as well as the Artic explorers main milestones... a very long story !

Hello Jean Marc,

 

This is really quite wonderful!  I know it would be a huge amount of work, but perhaps you could consider adding a bibliography, even a few citations to go along with your work.  I read a marvelous book dealing with this general area as part of a history course I took recently:  https://www.amazon.com/Gentleman-Adventurer-Edward-Beauclerk-Maurice/dp/0618773584

 

The result is that I daydream about flying to one of locations to take pictures for a scenery project. Just a dream, but a nice one.

 

Cheers

Your comment is greatly appreciated Larry. I need to look for this book by Beauclerk which seems really interesting ! Thank you

I read many books about artic for many years and my favorite ones are by Jean Malaurie, Knud Rassmussen, Peter Freuchen as well by PE Victor.

Some screenshots shown these books ... mostly in the next parts so we will see these sources. But almost no exact reference or citation as the story is totally fictive and the texts are mostly original - a few exception sometimes summary of text from wikipedia or universalis and so  - always modified to be shorter :)

Hi Jean Marc, I flew over it at maybe 35,000 feet once.

I have been very sensitive a few years ago, flying over Greenland at such altitude when going to Denver how the ice was less visible...much more rocky ... climatic change effects :-[

Is that the Aerosoft Twin Otter #113, #114?

If so, is there a trick to getting the power [prop] levers to move?

Is there a lock somewhere?

I can move the throttles ok, but the prop levers don't budge.

 

& a respectful suggestion re your thesis - the Parts are so full of life's rich tapestry that I struggle to digest the volume of  detail.:)

Could you perhaps consider halving a "Parts" in the future so my slow brain can absorb the detail in 1 sitting.??

I  probably have AAD.

So Part 4 becomes Part 4 & Part 5?

Thanks

TTM

Hello TTM, yes Extended Twin Otter - the levers are moving ok for me : from the upper deck by the mouse but not so easlily, and the best would be to have a twin throttle yoke

(I have just bought the Honeycomb flight control and I will probably look for the Honeycomb Throttle Quadrant)

I have already 9 parts (almost all the screenshots are already done with included pictures and most of the texts - I started 4 months ago !) and I think more than 9 parts  would be too long to follow...

I know there are (too) many details and things to read but so many things to tell about artic 8) And surely most people do not read all (maybe a bit boring) and just look the screenshots :-[

Oh, I read it all religiously - very educational & informative!

I think the propeller lever is only locked on the amphibian version, I was able to fly the Tundra - I just left the lever alone.

maybe an useful map link for anyone who plan to fly in this beautiful area  (of course it needs to have ftx global+vector+open lc to have good landscape details)

Also great to have littlenavmap which is a great freeware: see below the flying map example :

flight of part 4 coming soon :) here is already a view :

Well, I finally remembered to look this great post up Jean Marc.:rolleyes:

Very interesting to look and read with a great selection of photos and your screenshots.:)

I never realised there were camels here years ago and it was interesting to read about them and the fact of how different the temperatures were there 3 to 4 million years ago.:huh:

Happy you read it Martyn !

Amazing indeed the all changes of climate and animals on Earth for millions of years ...

....and that camels have a very long history in many places on our planet :lol:
