  1. I think they are walkway. Perhaps heated? Same color on the park pads in front of the terminal. (See my 2nd shot of the 3) TTM
  2. After watching a video about starting the H135 I went back & had another go, this time with success. There is a subtlety in the 'From Cold' start procedure that I missed 1st time around. When you start each engine with an upwards roll of the mouse wheel on the starter switch, & everything is running ok, you need to 'roll the mouse wheel' again on each starter switch, to bring the FADEC in. I missed the 2nd 'roll'. So now it I have a civilized flyer. TTM
  3. Indeed! Nested on top of a car. In P3D I could fly Helicopters without too much trouble. In MSFS I loaded Vagar then the H135. Fired it up & went berserk in front of the terminal & ended up in the car park. Back to square one as regards learning the H135! TTM
  4. I like the mid Atlantic location of the Faroes for stop overs between the UK & Iceland & Scandinavia. It makes for white knuckle approaches. MK-Studios MSFS Vagar, (EKVG), captures the wind swept bleakness of this blasted heath airport locale. There is something not quite right in the shot below. Can you spot it? TTM (MSFS)
  5. Among those in the know, but spoken of in hushed tones, is that the hangar with 'extras' has subsequently been identified as a clearing house for purloined goods, & the perpetrators are under surveillance. Rest easy. TTM
  6. Wing Commander TTM drops into Bryce to check progress on the update & Pony. The absence of both will generate a report to HQ. TTM
  7. You can't take 1 flight at Hammerfest then put it aside! This time I used SoFly Light Snow to give a winter ambience, & had a look around the City. I was keen to get an authentic livery in there, but Wideroe run Dash 8 Q100's, [for the short runway], & I couldn't find a Q100 for MSFS. There is a freeware Q400, but it needs nearly twice the runway length & the freeware Wideroe livery is currently a bit dicey. I settled on a fictional Kingair 350 livery. Hammerfest is a very interesting place to fly out of , all sorts of stuff tucked away around the peninsula & beyond. Also, there is what looks like a massive power transmission lines system near the airport. FWIIW, all shots are untouched/unedited/un fiddled with etc. TTM (MSFS) A drifting left departure from Rwy 4. Circled clockwise & now back over the City. More City as I head for the LNG terminal. LNG terminal fly by. On approach into Rwy 4. Climbing as the airport is on a plateau & I was below it. Successful roll out after a bit of sliding. Note the power line complex on the horizon. Anyone know what that is? Perhaps a feed to the City from hydro or thermal power?
  8. Bit slow to pick this one up. I wanted to try the circling approach into Rwy 22 & the 1st shots reflect an 'attempt'. Hammerfest is a very compact airport and Finni has done a nice job of reflecting the character of the location & immediate surroundings. A worthy addition to your Scandinavian portfolio! TTM (MSFS) Departing Rwy 22 to circle back anti clockwise. Switched to dusk to pick up the landing guidance lights. Couldn't spot them from here. Rwy 22 Lead in lights- I was actually on approach when they appeared to turn on. They are bright Amber. One is under the left wing tip, the other is in front of the left wing. There was a 3rd which I have flown past. It was back, to the left, so the 3 form a curved lead in to Rwy 22. I think I needed to be a bit lower as I was turning, to trigger the lights earlier. View from the cockpit. Looks ok but was way too slow from fiddling with shot placement & the Goose dropped like a stone just short of the runway.
  9. Nicely composed & cropped. TTM
  10. Interesting choice & nice set of shots. 2,909' = pretty tight. Shot 6: the boat with 4 orange half spheres on deck, what is it carrying? TTM
  11. A welcome & nicely executed addition to MSFS Scandinavian destinations & a shortish flight from Bromma. A few shots in differing weather & times of day. TTM (MSFS) I assume its a a hangar or munitions store?? Drag racing with a tarmac patrol car. Prior to this I had to dodge a speeding luggage tractor coming towards me. Dusk Dusk, looking the other way Morning cloud Light snow
