An outstanding set from your tour Gerold.

You have captured the area really well and the comparisons show how good the scenery is.

Good to see the Belfast there too.:)

Indeed John, I like to see Martyns travel reports as much as I like posting my own ones. And you can be sure the flight over the reef was (another) dream coming true. Despite snorkeling on the following day...

Amazing comparison shots Gerold.

The Caravan is a great plane. I have the newer Carenado version which does have G1000.

Thanks Ben! Learning the G1000 would be an interesting challenge. Maybe some day...

Thank you Martyn. It is amazing how good Orbx has captured the area. Unfortunately my next (business) trip will be India, and with OLC Asia being cancelled recently I can not come with similar posts..

Amazing post Gerold..  I had a hard time telling the screenshots from the real photos. 

To be honest John: I had the same trouble. Especially #16 (fascinating reef) could be real or sim.

Fantastic job Gerold!  How often are you traveling like this?  It seems quite a lot.

Thanks Jack. Well, this was a once-in-a-lifetime trip. With wife and all kids, and filled with so many little or big sights. Did I ever write between the lines that I love that country?

Magnificent juxtaposition work mate! What a great tour and commentary! I must admit that I prefer the steam gauges as well.

Thank you TT! Trusty old tech, and, well, that route you could fly VFR without any flight planning system... 8)

Fantastic mix of sim/RL shots there Gerold. Good to see the old "Belslow" in there.  Is that still parked up at Cairns?  The sole survivor of its type I think.

What an enjoyable and beautiful tour Gerold, thank you for that! :)

+1 !! :) what a nice trip in the sim and in RL !!

(PS : For the reef in the sim you could use REX Textures to improve the reef aspects and to be very similar...you surely know it ?)

Thank you Laurie. I did not know it is just parked, I was just very pleased to see she matches the Orbx scenery perfectly.

Merci Jean Marc. I have Set 18 - Dark - Shallow Coral running. Maybe the sunshine of that day needs a slightly less dark version.
