After our arrival in Brisbane...

... we were lucky: It was the final day of the Brisbane festival https://www.brisbanefestival.com.au/ with some extra shows in the city. On our way to dinner a suspicious plane crossed our way...

Big. Noisy. Low. Very low.

Unfortunately we can see that the iconic pedestrian bridges over Brisbane River are missing in Orbx Australia, like Kurilpa or Goodwill Bridge.

After hiding behind the skyscrapers the pilot probably proved to be a real Jack.

Just a little documentation showing that the correct livery was used...

And another proof: No bridge was hurt that day.

Nice shots Gerold!!!!!!!!!!  The scenery is amazing.

Thanks John. Amazing enough in the sim, despite the missing details or cityscape. But no comparison to real impressions.

Splendid Gerold, well done!  I'm surprised he was allowed to fly that low in the city though.

At least the C-17 was really slow. It was followed by a number of F-16s, and they had some different speed (and were much louder).

Well done Gerold. There is s a bit of Jack in all of us:D

We have been trained in this forum, haven´t we?

There would have been plenty more fireworks had the C-17 flown under the Storey Bridge!

Indeed. Not too much space under this bridge.

A wonderful replication of this event Gerold.

... and I can tell you it was not too easy to fly the big toy over the river and following its curves. At least I knew it must be possible.

We found a really good place to watch the Riverfire, fantastic to see.
