All Orbx stuff including TE GB, EGLC.

Made a cool flight, from Carlisle in Scotland all the way to London, but, at 5000 feet.  This TrueEarth scenery is so well worth it!

 

I know it's not realistic at 5000' but I wanted to see if I could do it.  And a hand ILS landing at EGLC.

 

Here's where I left off in my Cub, pix from that flight later.  Carlisle.

Great shots Jack. Nice scenery at 5000.:)

Thanks Karl.  It’s very nice scenery in TE.  For sure and the frames are the same.

Go man go!:wacko:

A tremendous series of images from your special low level sight seeing flight Jack, very enjoyable.

The place you wanted to know is Stretford, Manchester, you can see the Manchester United ground and behind it the Old Trafford Cricket Ground.

Like the pun! :) Thanks Martyn, it's always nice to have a name for a POI I find.

Most folks in Carlisle don't realize they're in Scotland.  Throughout history Carlisle has changed hands many times - right now though it's part of England.
