But with a little patience a runway appears (what what I do without GPS?).

Time to cool down & strenghten the nerves for the next tour.

With real weather it seems to be difficult to find a good daytime to view the countryside here. But, be assured, it does not get boring either...  :blink:

Great set, and enjoying following your trip


 


r.e weather, this I think is the major issue with flying in this part of the world, being so close to the equator you get thunder/rain every afternoon around 3ish, every PNG story I have read, every PNG video I have watched its always... the weather


 


Cheers

Nice set..bet there's a lot of Twotters in PNG !

Indeed, the character of the area needs a plane like the Twotter.

... and there is one thing I do not fully understand: If I fly in Europe at 12:00 UTC with setting "actual weather" - do I get the weather at local PNG time (UTC plus 10), or do I have hazy lunchtime?
However, for the bush strips I faked "good weather"...

 

nice shots!

and they don't call it RAINforest for nothing..

 

Hmm, the name could have told me. I have to admit. And: Many thanks for the fantastic PNG paint!
