Some few from NZSI and some from Tasmania

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone!

It’s been a while since my last screenshots here, but i did not do much simming during the holiday season.

Nevertheless though: Still did some flights in between and hit the V-Key from time to time.


Here are some captures now from NZSI and Tasmania.

Please enjoy!

Cheers, Christoph

First: NZMF – with some edit (just for fun)

… now how did i just get here into this soup?

Lost with the Cub within some weather getting worse and worse! I “simply†wanted to fly to the Hollyford Airstrip located somewhere between Glenorchy and NZMF. Well: I had to turn around and fly back as the weather just did not get better. Tried again another day, but honestly said: I just hardly managed to land at Hollyford after my third try or so – it’s really hard to even get the smallest airplane down there safely I think. So: If You want some – in my opinion – challenging approach then visit Hollyford Aisrtrip! …

Tasmania! I have not been to Australia for a while actually and so decided to spend some time at Tasmania's Western Coast. Smithton, YSMI, was my “home-airport†of choice for that time. I flew along the coast southwards down to Strahan frequently.
