  1. Beautiful shots and great landing, Paul. The Corsair is not the easiest to land on a carrier
  2. Thanks, TT, hahaha, yes that's the one Thank you Paul Thank you, Carlos, the whole continent is so huge, (as you know better than anyone else here ) it would take a lifetime to explore just parts of it. But for me most impressive is this huge Amazon area Many thanks Landon Thank you kindly, Iain I'm glad you like it, Andreas
  3. Now...that first sentence in your thread...where on earth have I heard that before. Oh well, must have slipped my mind Did I say that I like your shots a lot? No, I didn't? Ok, here you go, sir: I like your shots a lot
  4. Superb screenies, as usual, Paul !!
  5. Our departure airstrip is somewhere in the jungles of Ecuador. These remote strips are still today sometimes used by Douglas DC-3 airplanes. As we will get our DC-3 only in November, we use the equally capable Ju-52 to ferry to these areas badly needed supplies. Shell Mera is a small city located on the western edge of the Ecuadorian Amazon and in the eastern foothills of the Andes. It is located about 94 miles (151 km) southeast of Quito. Its name comes from the Royal Dutch Shell corporation. Shell Mera was established in 1937 as a Shell Oil Company base. The base consisted of little more than several basic shacks and a 5,000-foot (1,500 m) airstrip. It was operated as part of Shell's prospecting efforts in the region.
  6. Many thanks Iain. But I'm not Johnny Thank you very much, John I'm glad you like them, Calum Many thanks, Paul Thanks a lot Lars. Sorry, I forgot to mention, the rhino on Table Mountain is indeed for real. In January 2013, the image of a rhino was projected against the face of Table Mountain to support anti-rhino poaching activities in South Africa Many thanks, buddy. It's a great add-on, you will like it Thank you very much, my friend. My favorite livery indeed
  7. Terrific shots, Paul. And now I know where Norwegian got their livery from. It was you in your Cessna
  8. Mike, I only checked once yesterday out of curiosity. My FPS went up from around 40-45 to around 50-55 over large cities, most of my sliders are on ultra. Otherwise I just do like Iain. I never bother as long as the sim is smooth. Which it is.
  9. Looking at those nice pics, I can imagine that you miss working on these planes, Jack. This add-on is for me one of the best in MSFS!
  10. That superb Spitfire fits right in! Excellent shots, Iain !
  11. Marvelous shots, buddy. And it's nice to hear from Ken that an update is in the works
  12. Cape Town Scenery by Orbx Pilatus PC-6 by Orbx partner Milviz
  13. Absolutely, he was the one with the Zebra Do-27 D-ENTE. Tragically, his 25 year old son crashed with the plane and died, while shooting the movie "Serengeti shall not die". Apparently his plane's right wing was hit by a large vulture.
  14. Thanks Wayne, much appreciated! Exactly, Landon. That plane was developed by Digital Aviation and was quite advanced for its time. You could easily mistreat the engine, which would in turn die on you. That zebra paint was done for a DO-27 in 1959 for a German zoo director and his son, who were asked by the British government to try to count wilderbees and their annual movements around Kenya, so that better borders for the huge park could be established. They did not only do that, they also made a documentary from it, which btw won an Oscar the following year. a first for a documentary. I saw the movie as a young lad in the sixties in a German theater and since that day this livery is my favorite for that plane Like you said, I haven't seen anyone developing that plane for MSFS yet, but we shouldn't give up hope.
  15. +1 Nothing to add to this !
  16. Excellent shot of the Goose!
  17. Many thanks, Landon. And thanks for noticing: my avatar picture is a Dornier Do-27, built in the late 1950s, 1960s. Yeah, the trips were incredible! Thank you very much Thanks a lot, John. There are so many interesting places to explore in our sim, but of course also in real life. But it's easier (and much cheaper) in our sim Many thanks, Paul. I have been to those places too (as a tourist). Africa truly is an amazing continent! Thanks a lot buddy. The place is fantastic, but not that easy to reach from the US, it's easier for us, as there are direct flights. Many thanks, Gerold. That's what I plan to do the next couple of days (or at least as long as I don't watch a documentary on tv, which tells me, that's a place I need to visit right now in the sim ) Thanks a lot, Adam. Trust me, it's worth it Many thanks, Martyn. Those trips were great fun.
