who's ever heard of Vacaville, CA?

Recommended Posts

well guys,

 

i mentioned to a friend i had acquired scenery of NorCal in the flight sim - & had been flying around San Fran...

 

he, to my surprise, had actually lived in a place called Vacaville, CA - & openly wondered if it was modelled...

 

my mission was to find it!

 

well, Sacramento is the closest large airport...

Currently at work 8 miles up the highway from there.  Also have flown in and out of there several times IRL.  Looks well produced on here.

I used to live in Fairfield and then Vacaville. Solo'd at Nut Tree Airport. Went to Armijo High School. LOL

I have a Vacaville drag strip tee shirt, & have friends who live in Cool, Ca, which is North East of Sacramento, back in the hills.

I think Paradise is somewhere around there too.

very cool, TigerT

 

even Wikipedia does not have that much history about the Vacaville car racing history...

 

the overall knowledge of our forum members is enlightening - i'm learning from you all every day!

Ok, so what AI program are you using?


traffic global from just flight - I have mentioned it a couple of times before...

 

I hid the ‘red ai aircraft text’ in these shots...

 

btw, a helluva lotta fun chasing ai aircraft approaching/departing airports in a heli - anywhere!
 

always remembering it is a ‘sim’ - after all ;)

I had never heard of Vacaville until now, beautiful images from this enlightening set.


neither had I ever heard of Vacaville, when I woke up this morning...

 

made the mission with guidance of a friend - & sure enough found it in TE NorCal!

Back in the 70s-80s I was stationed at Travis AFB (C5 FE) and lived in Vacaville. I can't smell an onion without thinking of that place :))

There was a large onion processing plant  in town that you could smell everywhere.

Noticed much of an fps effect when TGlobal is loaded?

& can you customise how many aircraft are loaded & where? [eg- West Coast USA only when you are flying there.]
