What a great thread.. I only saw it today as I have been offline for quite a while.. a thoroughly enthralling read..I hope it can be kept going..Teecee.

Over the last years I have visited a number of Orbx airports in reality. And I suspect, many of you have done that, too. That gave me an idea... let me start a little collection here: Someone p

After Landon's post about the hill I was completely on the wrong track, assuming it might be Walter Sutton's.

But due to Greg's post about the logs I knew I was wrong.

Sorry to mislead you Wolfgang, not my intention. And yes, I can see how the hill near Walter Sutton's could have been the guess. But, that hill near 1S2 has messed with me many times when turning around to land, so that is how I knew which hill it was. 

 

Cheers!

No worries mate. :)

I should have had a closer look at Rob's pic to realize that the mountain was too big to be the one at Walter Sutton's. Also I completely overlooked the tree logs.

Got one more for you.   PNW but I hope I don't make it too easy.  :P

 

I'm sure John knows what this one is but here's another hint for everyone that's not sure yet.

Last one for now (until I can dig up some older pics).  No one will be surprised but it's such a sweet place I should post a few but the others have a sign in them!  :D

I have a suspect. Could it be another Hegi/Glathorn airport?

You might try the Tacoma Narrows island version in msfs - the one with trees growing out of the single bridge:D

Fantastic real life details, Rob. Do you have some more for us to enjoy or even guess?

If we can post pics of airports that Neil Hill did for the PNW region freeware, then yes!  As for payware I'll have to look at the Discover map in msfs to jog the ol memory.  :P

I would say: "Yes" - we are still giving advertisements for Orbx products, even if it just the freeware additions to PNW. Plus, we can compare how good this stuff meets reality!
