Great original set Jack but "Okay Houston, we've had a problem here!":huh:

"How are you going to get the SCA in here to take us back to the Kennedy Space Centre?":o:-:lol:

:o now that's a first. :lol:

 

Thanls Adam, I was trying to decide what to fly and that clicked.  The exterior is amazing but the cockpit?  Not so much.

well chosen Shuttle launch ramp, Jack

 

tres unique! ;) 

Much appreciated Craig.  I wanted to be creative.  After this I made a more sensible flight that I'll post later, this is a stunning area.

Amazing idea & shots, my friend!

The first picture is so detailed - initially I thought it was a TrueEarth region. Seems to be your setup is indeed working well.

Well Jack, you always come up with something different.:D   I didn't think the space shuttle could take off.:huh:

Thanks John, quite the nice compliment.  It can’t take off so I positioned it for an approach.

Thanks Gerold!  This is XP and I too am amazed at the clarity and detail.

But yours is the kind that needs $zillion rockets to get off/up.  Jack's is a homebuilt - doesn't quite meet LSA limits though.

Great idea Jack but 'fraid your DOA in that last one.

Thanks and you're right, had a "yard sale" at the end.  I think I could do it with practice though.
