  1. After receiving clearance in Tari ( http://www.orbxsystems.com/forum/topic/84825-you-have-clearance-my-post-4k/ ) I headed slowly eastwards, until the airstrip of Mendi came in sight: Looked so interesting, that I had to change my plans and landed there. I was a bit confused while rolling on the runway: There were some cars from an open road between the runway and the apron... : As a good German driver I did not wait for green traffic lights and crossed the street directly. But... who is checking the apron here? But the panoramic view of the rainforest pays for every confusion. I think I just need a day off & a cold one... So great to discover the details Ken & Tim have hidden here!
  2. ... the west of PNG. Taking off into a sunny morning from Daru... ... but quickly the humidity builds up some tropical haze... ... over Fly River, ... ... which I follow upwards to PNGs western border... ... to Kiunga airstrip. Yes, it is there! And - well equipped. Changing the airlines ... ... to follow this little navaid ... ... until some major obstacles appear. FSGRW still thinks it is humid and cloudy... ... while the rainforest builds up to more then 10.000 ft... On final to Tari. Any comment needed? But with a little patience a runway appears (what what I do without GPS?). Time to cool down & strenghten the nerves for the next tour. With real weather it seems to be difficult to find a good daytime to view the countryside here. But, be assured, it does not get boring either...
  3. For the outstanding discovery of PNG I had to go up in a slower way. From Cairns ... ... across the Great Barrier Reef ... ... to Scherger: Changed to an adequate one (and to hybrid mode), to fly over Badu Island ... ... Moa Island ... ... the Mabuiag Reef ... ... with Saibai Island in sight ... ... and the first view to PNG´s south coast. On final to Daru ... ... and ready for the immigration procedure. FS Global real weather used.
  4. After searching for Wolter at Hilversum and Almere (w/o success, he must have been at his computer answering support requests...), I left from Hilversum ... ... followed the railway line from Amersfoort via Apeldoorn, Deventer, Hengelo, Enschede, Bad Bentheim and Rheine to Osnabrück (the train connection is every 2 hrs, and arrives in Hannover at 13:18, 15:18 and so on - I use it every day...) ... ... to Porta Westfalica-Feldheim, surrounded by the Weser river and some flooding lakes. The Porta itself. I see it from my office, but even with DEX the monument is missing (and that is a pain for me! ): Anybody reading this who could add it to the virtual world? My office building should be in an industrial area around these little harbours. The crossing waterways are correct, but the bridge is missing... http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wasserstra%C3%9Fenkreuz_Minden Bueckeburg military airbase. Just next to "my" railway line. CH-53s are stationed here, waiting for their tours around my site . Hannover, with the Niedersachsenstadion and the well-known-missing Maschsee. Final towards 27L... ... and done!
  5. Continuing the pleasure cruise around my home, it is now time to support the postal delivery service onto the Ostfriesische Inseln. Just a few years ago, this was also the way to bring the new movies to the Island´s cinemas (IT progress changes the times...). I am not sure if someone is interested to read that I was actually WALKING to most of these islands when I was a child - which is possible during low tide (and with a certified guide, as this can be very dangerous). Getting ready to start from Bremerhaven, in the usual north german summer weather - and again facing the lovely placed windmills. Just after crossing the Weser to the west, the Nordenham airworks appear. They are building steel and titanium fuselage parts for Airbus and - under contract - for Boeing and Dassault. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Premium_AEROTEC Arriving at the Jade bight, obviously a windy place... Wilhelmshaven with its oil harbour. I remember driving there years ago on early Sunday mornings on the Autobahn. No traffic. No speed limit. And surely faster than the Cessna... Harlesiel airport - I would suspect this is too small even for this bird. Wangerooge ahead, for the first delivery landing... ... and taking off again. Now for Langeoog... ... and Juist. The tour continued via Borkum with some international postings to Hilversum, but I have already published that part... http://www.orbxsystems.com/forum/topic/83710-looking-for-wolter/?hl=wolter
  6. ... nearly. From Sylt, the northernmost point of Germany... ... crossing the Nord-Ostsee-Kanal (Kiel Canal) at Rendsburg, one of the most frequented canals of the world - and home to the longest rowing race. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kiel_Canal Following the canal westwards... ... to the industrial area at Brunsbüttel, where the canal merges with the mouth of the Elbe river. Down the river to Cuxhaven ("Alte Liebe, Kugelbake, hoi hoi hoi!"), where we see another crappy harbour texture... ... and over to the Bremerhaven container terminal. Entering the lovely Weser river, towards the airfield Bremerhaven-Luneort. But who has placed the windmills crosswind indicators so close to the runway ?
  7. ... that is easy with OpenLC Europe. Taking off from Barth/D... ... towards Rostock (with the harbour area grey like Freemantle - why is it this way?)... ...over the Island of Falster / DK... ...across Karlslunde... ...and approaching Kopenhagen-Kastrup along the Oeresund bridge, with a view to Malmoe/SE to the right. Then leaving FTX-default Kastrup again... ... the city of Copenhagen, with some nice details, but also with lowlights (like the harbour again). Oeresund bridge (freeware from FSDG, if I am allowed to say here)... ...and Malmoe/SE, with the nicely added twisted tower (and again with an awful harbour - we definetively need a texture for this).
  8. Hi, just a short report from my holiday, hope it is not misplaced in this part of the forum as it consists of only one screenshot showing a virtual pilot enjoying the beautiful views of water and mountains over Lake Garda... ... and 2 real pictures that were my daily view. This region is brilliantly done in the combination of FTX Global tools, and I am keenly awaiting the announced Open LC upgrade with mediterrenian cities! (And now I have some days at home to learn flying again... ).
  9. I was crossing the austrian alps from the south, coming over the Königssee ... ... towards Berchtesgaden ... ... and into Salzburg. Good to see that also THE Salzburg is included in Global! But when I finally parked my 185, I had to recognize that I would have needed a different plane & livery to be well dressed for this spot between Hangar 7 and Hangar 8: http://www.hangar-7.com/en/the-flying-bulls/aircraft/ I hope someone else can do it better!
  10. Just a little collection of flights when I was working my way northwards from Chile. Over the Atacama desert... ... and approaching La Paz El Alto Intl. The origin of the name is easy, the altitude is over 13000 ft! Coming from the south I was ordered to land on the 28 but with an approach over these mountains from the north, followed by a 270° left turn. Quite a challenge! Starting in La Paz is not easy either. I did not manage to get a Twotter flying, so I had to take a jetplane... Titicaca Lake. Great nature here, waiting for Open_LC SA... Approaching Cuzco. Located in a mountain valley - the next demaning landing. For the following flight to Lima I took a more suitable plane. Not so easy to manage the balance between engine temperature, cloud layer and the mountains blocking the way. But a pleasure to fly! Landing in Lima did not make me take screenies, the SA scenery still has its limitations...
  11. After repeating the helicopter pratice lessons in Lihue I just took the quick commuter back to Honolulu, to finish my Hawaii round: Climbing out... ... and cruising in: Thanks for watching!
  12. Took off in Borkum, the westernmost of the East Frisian Islands ... ... heading over Ameland ... ... and Den Helder ... ... to Hoorn. Sure you know that the southern cape of the American continent was named after this nice old harbour city. Well, it was an open sea harbour before the Afsluitdijk was built. I was in Hoorn with a sailship about 30 years ago... time flies! Then i crossed the west end of the Ijsselmeer towards Almere ... ... before I landed in Hilversum "International", hard work as this airfield only has short grass runways - so no screenies (but I survived ). Now Wolter must be somewhere here... perhaps I better check all the bars around...
  13. I should not forget to continue my Hawaii tour... here we go from Kalaeloa to the west...: Approaching Kauai Island... ... to Barking Sands (who invented this name?) ... .... and beautiful views over the NW coast of Kauai: Over the north coast ... .... Princeville ... ... some nice houses there! Finally approaching Lihue airport (for some helicopter training, I bet you remember these early FSX missions).
  14. I left Kasi´s city early ... ... crossed the (rainy) Uckermark, home region of our chancellor ... ... and arrived at the Oderhaff, at the border between Poland and Germany: Did not want to got through the customs procedure, so I turned westwards over Heringsdorf (behind) ... .. to Peenemünde. Looks so peaceful today, but this airport is a famous place: To the right of it there were the test stands and rocket batteries, "widely regarded as the birthplace of modern rocketry and spaceflight.". We will never forget that building the weapon V2 killed more lifes of the forced workers than their impacts in England did to the civilians. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peenem%C3%BCnde_Army_Research_Center Doubtless the people involved at that place had developed much better products in the after-war carrier, cumulating in the Bell X-15, the Saturn V rocket and the basic principles of the Space Shuttle. Interesting reading! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Walter_Dornberger http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wernher_von_Braun http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arthur_Rudolph Nuclear power plant Lubmin. Went off-stream in 1990, still about 1000 people are working on the decontamination and dismantling. The orbyfied landscape of Rügen. Looks so impressive! Rügen airport. I am not sure if I got the textures right, or if the taxiway only needs hovering. But actually it seems to me I have forgotten to install the freeware!
  15. Took off early in the morning from EDCG Rügen to the east, ... ... to the beach of Binz and Prora - surprisingly the gigantic hotel is missing: "The buildings extend over a length of 4.5 kilometres ..." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prora And northwards to the Cliffs of Rugen and Cape Arkona: I had to repeat part of this tour later on, as Frank revealed to me the overcoming of DEX-FTX overlaps in EDCG... taking off in Rügen again: The Rügendamm at Stralsund, with deactivated Vector bridges (cat 1-3): Las Velgast: The final to EGBH: What a nice work! Thanks for picking me up, Frank. Nice shirt, btw. And I am sure we will squeeze all three of us into that car...
  16. Inspired by the plane Mallard chose for his Tahoe sightseeing, I knew which one to take for the tour to Berlin: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Berlin_Airlift#The_start_of_the_Berlin_Airlift Climbing out of Hanover: Hmm, Wolfsburg is not looking like it did in 1948. But the Volkswagen works are still at the same place. Crossing the Elbe in Magdeburg: Potsdam and the lakes: A view over Berlin from the south: To the left there is the Olympic stadium of 1936, Tiergarten just before my nose, and the Alexanderplatz to the right. Approaching the only suitable airport: Tempelhof. At least in the sim it is still in operation. The city is under my right wheel. Tied down. In front of one of the longest buildings ever built: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tempelhof_Airport Oh no, I forgot to drop the Candy for Kasi ....
  17. With the beatiful weather in Lanai I could not believe the rescue call that came in: Some tourists got lost south of Oahu. So I had to fly from beautiful Lanai (another free ORBX airfield)... ... towards Oahu Island. Indeed the weather was much more serious there. Spotted the lost guys, got the coordinates to some coast guard boats and continued via Honolulu, Oahu ... ... and Pearl Harbour ... ... to Kalaeloa: We simmers are always on duty when requested!
  18. Now for another quick and relaxing tour across the volcanoes: from Kona ... ... looking at the place of yesterday´s "sports" ... ... and climbing over Mauna Loa. It needs some power to get that high in a short time. Once again the remarkable Waimea valleys: Looking back to Big Island. The next volcano in the row: Haleakala. And now for the surfers among us: Jaws in the background, Hookipa in the middle, and Sprecks just below. Select the waves you like! The fantastic West Maui mountains... ... and the east coast of Lanai, downwind already... ... even more downwind, to have a good view of the cliffs... ... and that´s it: Lanai. Enhanced by our friends of the global freeware airport group - thanks!
  19. A longer distance needs a faster plane. But not a too serious looking one. Taking off from Hana, Maui... ... over the NW end of Big Island: Waimanu and Waipio valley: After crossing Mauna Kea, Bradshaw Airfield under the right wing: Looking at Hilo: The Kilauea Lava fields - surrounded by many others here in the Volcanoes NP: Approaching Kona... ... and enjoying some slightly uncommon airport buildings. The global standard airport architecture toolbox was not used here, thanks for that!
  20. Next part of my Hawaii tour, continuing http://www.orbxsystems.com/forum/topic/83034-hawaii-tour-part-1-honolulu-to-molokai/#entry760061 : The famous FSX beginners mission reflown from Molokai ... ... over Kalaupapa ... ... along the Molokai cliffs ... ... to Lahaina: Over Kahului ... ... following Hana Hwy (well, I followed not every corner of the road ). Into the Blue... Approaching Hana airfield. A fantastic flight!
  21. Departing "default" Honolulu: Oahu´s west coast - great mountain views, I can tell you! Mokuleia: Kahuku: Approaching Kaneohe: Leaving Oahu, over its SW end: Approaching Molokai: ... this rare time I did not forget to take a picture of the final!
  22. Taking off in Venice after spending a nice (crowded) summer day there, with the islands to my left ... ... then turning westwards ... ... and northeast, guided by the moon ... ... which disappeared in the clouds as I proceeded to this flights destination: Vienna, the home of our friend Moonman (hope he gets some better weather than REX was willing to give).
  23. We are coming to the situation that we can use our sceneries to precheck upcoming real life travel! Monte Baldo, at the east coast of Lake Garda: Riva, Torbole and Arco at the northern tip of the Lake: Monte Brione, a remainder of the last ice age, between Torbole and Riva: Malcesine to the left: Torri del Benaco should be under the wing in the right part of the picture, this is where ... ... the ferry to Toscolano Maderno starts. Well, Toscolano should be covering the peninsula... ... just as Sirmione should be covering this thin peninsula in the south of the Lake: Verona, at the banks of Etsch river. Again, it seems we are lacking a texture for "old medieval city",so the old town looks far too modern under the Legacy´s belly. BTW, I do not have a problem with missing landmarks or handplaced autogen - there must be a difference to a full-fat region, mustn´t it? Venice. The Palazzo is there, but - again - the "medieval city" texture would be much better here. OK, I will get you some comparison shots in holiday for the next ORBXLIBS update . But I have to point out, the general impression was fantastic to me!
  24. So now I am infected, to explore the FTXG world. Starting with a region I visited years ago in FSX default - do you remember these ancient looks? Lago Menendez, South Chile: Futaleufu: Heading back north from there, however, in southern winter: Puerto Montt (should be there....) ... ah, it IS there! Taking off from Puerto Montt... ... passing el Volcan Osorno, ... ... Los Andes, ... ... and downwind into Santiago:
  25. I am not sure if this is a Mesh or Vector or whatever issue: Whitehorse was ok when I flew there with SAK only. Now I have FS Global 2010 Mesh installed, as well as FTXG Base & Vector. FTX Central set to North America (so Global should be inactive). Should I also deactivate the mesh when flying in a full-fat region? At least, it is installed with lower prio than all FTX products already. Or do I have to "lift" the airport in the elevation tool (what would surprise me in a full-fat region)?
