  1. Unfortunately the number of liveries for this plane is limited, and regional paints are rare. Like in reality... So I had to use a BA flight to get some tourists from Hannover ... ... get a birds eye view over Oslo ... ... to approach in Trondheim. A nice valley this is... ... but with limited visibility at the Outer Marker. Luck with the cloud layer, it was above Minimums: Now back to low & slow excursions!
  2. A flight from Sion to Bern, crossing a good part of Frank´s freeware 3D-scenery. First, eastwards along the Valais, with the weather looking not too pleasant... Then climbing along the Aletsch Glacier ... ... to Jungfrau, Mönch and Eiger. Looks spectacular in flight! Finally, heading down across Interlaken and Thun to Bern. Seeing the result of Franks voting made it easier for me to leave this playground: I am sure he will add even more features to this fantastic area.
  3. As requested in http://www.orbxsystems.com/forum/topic/97753-ftx-global-2010-mesh-screenshot-request/ ,I did a short sightseeing tour around Cape Town, using the Global products you can see in my signature, and starting at the Int. Airport. I have to admit I have never been there, so I cannot judge the quality of the scenery...:
  4. This is part 3 of the Global Mesh SA test flights ( http://www.orbxsystems.com/forum/topic/97753-ftx-global-2010-mesh-screenshot-request/ ),the Drakensberg area: I left Harrismith over the Sterkfontein Dam lake, ... ... climbing to the Drakensberg area. Google Earth suggests there should be similar table mountains as in Monument Valley, but the sim is not as spectacular. Finally, the landing in Lesotho´s Letseng airfield gets a little challenge from the HD trees... I have never set my sim to South Africa before, perhaps this area should deserve more awareness.
  5. From Triengen, another nice global FTX freeware airport ... ... across Luzern ... ... and Wädenswil ... ... to Zurich, for an equipment change. And with slightly bigger metal to my next to-be-discovered-in-detail area... ... guess where this is (should not be too hard....)!
  6. And now for the second request given in http://www.orbxsystems.com/forum/topic/97753-ftx-global-2010-mesh-screenshot-request/: Hartebeespoort lake. The landclass of FSX is 2006 state, so there are huge differences to Google earth (no nuclear facility at Pelindaba, the estates, canals and golf courses at the beautiful lake are missing). Surely there is no dam... ... but a nice mountain ridge. And the Outback looks very interesting, I was already dreaming of having South Africa in the same quality as AU red... .
  7. This short flight starts in FTXG, but ends with enhancement by another supplier. I can not tell the borderline, because it works seamless - however moderators feel free to delete this post if there is too much outside the Orbx scope. At least I can say: FTXG is the bridge to anywhere, and the upcoming OpenLC´s will be more than welcomed...
  8. No doubt where this is...: The Horn... ... and Monte Rosa on the Italian side of the border: Entering the Valais over Visp, ... ... LSMJ Turtmann, ... ... Sierre ... ... and finally Sion (default): Great to discover the area again, with Frank´s add-ons. PS: Do not forget to vote in Frank´s poll: http://www.orbxsystems.com/forum/topic/97633-which-mountain-groupspreferred/#entry884486
  9. ... which blends perfect into FTX Europe, and adds an extra-kick to it. Just some shots on the way from Geneva ... ... across the "Orbx-Dainese"-border ... ... crossing the Mont Blanc area, and finally to Aosta. Molto grazie a Frank, this area will need some more flights to enjoy the amazing impression (and performance). And I need a good map to allocate all the details to mountain & glacier names...
  10. A 777 training flight from Athens to Vienna over beautiful OpenLC EU. The airports are anhanced by 3rd parties, cities & land are FTXG. The Danube river in Hungary: Vienna city, downwind:
  11. For me this was a long awaited trip in Orbx-land, even more required after Martyn has just finished the opposite direction: http://www.orbxsystems.com/forum/topic/94785-off-to-the-land-of-gerold/ In March this is the light situation when I leave Hanover every morning to ride to work: The vehicle then passes Wunstorf AB, the home of Transall C-160 wing 62. The first German Airbus A-400 M is also stationed there (do not read the disaster of that planes development delays....) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wunstorf_Air_Base : Next station: Bückeburg / Achum AB: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/B%C3%BCckeburg_Air_Base: The CH-53´s fly around our office building frequently, great sound as you can imagine. My office view. One of these shots has been taken by mobile phone only...: Finally I can enjoy seeing the Emperor Wilhelm I. monument not "only" in RL. Heading south through the Porta, with Bückeburg behind, and the Jakobsberg TeleCom tower next to me. The view back north along the Weser river, showing the city of Minden. The south view, to Hausberge... ... and back north in a nice movement over the Wiehengebirge towards Minden: Time to approach EDVY. Someone has complained there would be steps when approaching from the east - I do not have this problem. Spring has come! Listen to the birds (sure you do, when you own this little airfield...)! And some more pictures for the locals (or the scenery lovers):
  12. Somewhere, around the sea... mostly with a jet. From Nice... ... along the alps, ... ... passing Genova. With a short intermediate flight from Verona... ... to Venice, ... ... and finally to Iraklio. And as this is one of the more challenging approaches, I directly entered into commuting service to Athens - and back. Some training is necessary here!
  13. Following my trip from San Sebastian to Seo de Urgel I headed back to the northeast ... ... to the next country on my plan: Andorra. Just to let you know why this plane is named F-BRDO... Crossing Figueras, Dali´s village... ... and, after a plane change, Rosas bay: Palafrugell, a nice place to stay... ... and down to Barcelona for the night. That would be a cityscape, with Gaudi´s buildings....!
  14. I started for this 3-country trip in San Sebastian, quite a nice bay at the Biscaya Sea surrounded by the northern end of the mountain range... ... crossed Biarritz (hello Karl, I am not wearing sweat pants!) ... ... and left the Pyrenees to my right, for the time time being. An uncommon pilgrim´s view of Lourdes ... ... before entering the more difficult terrain for an intermediate stop at Bagneres de Luchon. A challenging valley approach, but the airfield looks crappy - therefore no photos here. Next airfield in the list is Seo de Urgel, on the spanish side of the border, downwind... ... final (can you spot the landing lights just under my left wing?), ... ... and parked. A great FTXG freeware enhancement here, thanks to Sylvain! And, as you can see, with some american tourists around... . To be continued...
  15. From Porto ... ... to an intermediate landing in beautiful La Coruna. Going on with a commercial flight across Santander, ... ... and Bilbao ... ... to San Sebastian. These harbour cities in northern Spain really look good, perhaps we are lucky enough to get some more Orbx updates here ...?!
  16. Just a little bus tour up the westernmost end of the European continent: From Gibraltar ... ... across La Huelva ... ... and Lisbon ... ... to Porto.
  17. Took off from Lone Pine over Independence... ... with a slight turn over Kearsage Pass ... ... to Kings Canyon, and back over Big Pine: Winter doesn´t reveal the colours of Mono Lake... ... but still it gives a beautiful approach over Minden valley: Don´t you think these ladies are a bit underdressed for January at 8°C OAT... ?
  18. ... sure you all are aware of this stunning freeware of Antonio, Maurizio and Holger. Entering the playfield from Las Vegas over Amorosa Valley: Zabriskie Point: Heading down the valley ... ... to Trona (AEC needs to be disabled here): Following Hwy 395 N ... ... via Red Hill Cinder Cone, ... ... and Owens Lake ... ... to an intermediate landing in Lone Pine. Though it is "only" Summer season in the valley (would there be any snow at all?), it looks impressive. Artwork, again.
  19. I took the P-38 out for a flight from Las Vegas over Lake Mead ... ... eastwards, just crossing the Grand Canyon area, ... ... with a view across North Rim. Page Mun was the place where I managed to change to a slower plane for a tour around Lake Powell, starting at Glen Canyon Dam... Mesh & Vector data work great here, the Global textures are brilliantly sharp - so what is missing is the next delivery of OpenLC. But the base is set! Meanders at the best, at Goose necks: O4UT again shows the unability of FSX to have sloped runways - which becomes obvious with the level of mesh we have achieved nowadays. But the view back to Navajo Mountain compensates. And now down to Marble Canyon, for the next chapter...
  20. And here we are with the main course, after flying the Overture... http://www.orbxsystems.com/forum/topic/89799-an-overture/ Entering from Marble Canyon, that means from northeast: I am not sure if it is wise to fly there in RL at this speed... Just a short turn over North Rim... ... before landing in KGCN, another place with passionate OZx enhancement. Antonio, Maurizio and Holger did an amazing job here, resulting in pure enjoyment.
  21. The Delta flight KIAL-KLAS is being equipped at gate A15, to have enough coffee for a 3.5 h flight: Off we go. The 757 is a rocket, at least when it is not fully fuelled and on sea level: Rio Pecos: The sun and the moon: Albuquerque, the "half-way mark": Someone has carved this area in stone (for simmers the "someone" is known: Antonio and Holger). KCGN, enhanced by Maurizio: A little overview across the scene... ... but Lake Mead isn´t boring either: Las Vegas under the engine. Lake Mead again, in the passengers view, ... ... and on final into KLAS: Now let´s go gambling, and earn some presents for my family...
  22. Took off from New Orleans Lakeview on a hazy day, ... ... no good view on Lake Pontchartrain: Heading north over Mississippi state, ... ... to Jackson, MS: Had to take a commercial flight the next morning (I won´t tell you why... )... ... leaving Jackson, ... ... towards KIAH, Texas. I had to pause the flight here to join wifey for a christmas market walk - and after that EZDOC refused to work, so there are no more screenies today...
  23. A short hop from Baton Rouge ... ... across the industrial area at Geismar ... ... to a location with impressive river view ... ... here you are: Down to New Orleans ... ... still a long way to go until we come to the end of the river...: So I turned back north over the city, ... ... to the Orbx freeware Lakefront:
  24. No Show Boat, but the trusty Dash, climbing out of KIAH... ... towards Port Arthur / Sabine Pass... ... and over Calcasieu Lake: Here we are: The Ol´ man river in sight: Baton Rouge, painted in rouge: Sure there are some on this forum who see this river more often than me...
  25. The climb out of Corpus Christie to the north looks unspecatcular from the bird´s view ... ... but the AXE cockpit never looked so impressive before in my FSX, remember to have the fsx.cfg-entry "ForceVCShadowMap=1": Passing Matagorda Island... ... before I had the chance for another heading & shadow change: Houston, here we come (do you see the city in the background?)... ... but, hey - where is the runway? No shadows left. OK. No airport left. Not so OK. Stay calm, and leave the autopilots on... 500 ft AGL. The problem is solved. Autopilot off. Enjoying the last meters...! Thanks to Steve Parsons and his continous efforts to improve!
