  1. Fantastic shots, so much to see
  2. This time it’s the Arches Nat. Park. We took off with our Kodiak in Moab for a late afternoon flight. Look at all those trucks and buses in the distance in front of the plane’s nose. Maybe Spielberg is shooting another Indiana Jones movie Ok, time to head back to Moab
  3. No, I don't have any special shaders and I have the store version. The scenery (free) is from the .to site
  4. Thanks a lot, John Many thanks, Gerold. I have hundreds of pics from all over Utah and Nevada, with and without family and/or motorhome. Problem is, they are all taken at street level and not from the air. So it's difficult to compare them. All I can say is, that above shot look very real. Thank you very much, John Thanks Wayne. I can imagine that people would do this. Can you remember, where we have been with our sim three years ago and where we are now? Unbelievable Many thanks, Martyn. I have been there too, fascinating as well
  5. A couple of years ago, we have toured Utah and its neighboring states extensively in our RV. Now I can revisit those places in MSFS. We enter the Nat. Park at its west side near the visitor center. We leave the park again at its East site near the small town “Tropic”
  6. Thank you all my friends for your kind comments !!
  7. Awesome shots, buddy !!
  8. Looks mighty fine, Martyn.
  9. Excellent shots, Gerold. It's nice that you put some MSFS shots in-between
  10. Thank you all for your kind comments, my friends !!
  11. Magnificient screenies, Pete !!
  12. We all remember the superb Orbx Valdez scenery for P3D. Nowadays it comes from Gaya Simulations, an Orbx partner, and was offered free courtesy of Microsoft with the latest World Update 10. So, this is a flight out of Valdez with the equally new Carenado Beech DS18 and the Orbx Alaska mesh. It doesn't get any better
  13. Excellent shots and interesting to learn about your experience, TTM.
  14. Many thanks, Landon and Wayne for commenting! Sorry Wayne, the plane, I have forgotten to mention it, is the Dornier Wal (whale), a quite successful twin-engine German flying boat of the 1920s. The Norwegian polar explorer Roald Amundsen used it for his (unsuccessful) attempt to reach the North Pole in 1925. He landed at the wrong location. On January 22, 1926 a Spanish crew took off from Spain in the Wal to cross the Southern Atlantic and arrived in Buenos Aires, Argentina, on January 26. They stopped over at Gran Canaria, Cape Verde, Pernambuco, Rio de Janeiro and Montevideo. The 10,270 km journey was completed in 59 hours and 39 minutes. In 1930, a German aviator started on a transatlantic flight in the same plane, Amundsen had flown, establishing the northern air route over the Atlantic, flying from Sylt (Germany)-Iceland-Greenland-Labrador-New York 4,670 mi (7,520 km)) in 47 flight hours. Later these planes were also successfully used on regular mail runs between Spain and South America. It would be quite something to repeat some of these adventure flights today in MSFS
  15. Many thanks, Mickee and Adam for commenting !
  16. Thanks Gerold! That picture shows, how good MSFS is
