  1. Thanks John. Of course you are correct, ie his first point of contact in Australia was Brisbane and then he went on to Sydney, Melbourne etc. He had to get that adulation wherever he could! He will feature again in my Melbourne/Essendon video which should be out in 3 or 4 days. Looks like I will have to do a video on Brisbane as well! Maybe all the Aussie capital cities! I love this aviation history stuff, especially when there is some Orbx stuff to go with it. Cheers.
  2. @paulk, thanks for your comment and question. No perceived performance hit with the Junkers, as far as I could tell. Had High-End setting on my medium rig for the whole trip with good fps - probably could have used Ultra setting as I am doing now for my next video on YMEN Essendon history and Melbourne City and Bay tour. Cheers.
  3. de Havilland Dragon Rapide evening under-fly of Orbx's Eiffel Tower, Paris. Cheers.
  4. Yeah, thanks Brad, knew about them, but no Spit unfortunately. I think UK and NZ are only places where you can go in a Spit. BTW, how the hell did you get to 36.6K posts! Cheers.
  5. To fly in a spit has always been my dream. My wife says go for it, but I think too expensive. On my last visit to the UK I was standing on the top of Dover Castle with my wife and son when two spits flew by. They thought it was OK - but I nearly peed myself! Anyway, hope you have great weather and it is everything you want it to be. How long is the flight and how much? Cheers.
  6. I love visiting this airport when in the UK from Melbourne, Australia. Will you be including the beautiful RAF Chapel and new Museum, and the Spit and Hurricane at the entrance gates to the chapel and museum? How about including Winston Churchill’s nearby home, Chartwell - he was a frequent visitor to the airport - it would be a nice bonus, but now I’m being greedy! Cheers.
  7. Nice for my home town of Melbourne. I got my Recreational Pilot License at Tyabb along with X-country Endorsement, and then went to Moorabbin for CTA Endorsement which required some flights into Avalon and Essendon. I pop in to the pilot shop at Essendon every now and then - next time I might pop in and annoy the Orbx staff! Cheers.
  8. Visit KBDR Sikorsky Memorial Airport to see the birthplace of helicopters and the mighty WW2 Vought F4U Corsair fighter-bomber, and enjoy a quick tour of New York. Using Orbx/SamScene New York City Landscape. Cheers.
  9. I read somewhere recently, not sure where, that Orbx (and I think Gaya) are heavily involved in MSFS World Updates. Cheers.
  10. I fear this may turn into yet another fruitless it’s bad/it’s good debate. Orbx taking over MSFS? - pie in the sky. Cheers.
  11. Sorry I cannot help, other than to say that this cannot be an issue with Orbx! Cheers. PS: The usual trouble-shooting method is to temporarily remove all freeware and payware add-ons and return them one at a time.
