  1. ... continue the flight that was interrupted by a medical emergency the day before. So we boarded again in lovely polynesian weather... TrueGlass does a fascinating job. At least speed helps to get the screen clear! Bye bye Pago Pago. A few hours after we reached New Zealands northern island, in hot summer conditions. NZAA is really looking poor. At least the landing works, as well as the unloading of our expedition luggage.
  2. One of the travellers that suffered the unexpected detour of yesterdays flight NZ9 ... ... was really lucky to have his favourite plastic kit in the hand luggage. OK, he had to negotiate a bit with the check-in desk in Honululu, but at the stopover in Pago Pago this pays off. The trees in my scenery look a bit strange (January, real weather). But surely this did not stop me from following the short hop... ... into the harbour. The Mitchellwing really is a wing. Beware of the powerlines! At least the plane has enough power by itself to climb back over the hill... ... and back to NSTU.
  3. When NZ9 is pushed back in Honolulu you can already expect where we are going next. Instead of the regular 777 the equipment was changed today in favour of the Dreamliner. The routing is very simple: Direct to DATBE, then follow G347 to TARIB and then "just" land. Some other stunning views of the civilisation on Oahu. The 787 is a nice design. "Flying is hours of boredom, spiced with moments of horror" some say. After 3 hours a passenger reported sharp pain in the breast, together with panic-like rapid breathing. A doctor on board suggested to take him to a hospital asap, so we remembered the flight plan above and took a little detour to the left... Swains Island is a bit too small for us. The next surprise: Visibility on approach gets harder... ... but here we are: American Samoa. There must be a runway, ... ... ah, got it! Looks as if it was intended... Not intended was deboarding in rain for our passengers. No one had an umbrella at hand, and the airport was not prepared for them either. At least the medical emergency car was there. The heart attacked passenger was saved, and the others will have to spend a day in Pago Pago. Let´s see what they discover!
  4. Pictures from the wonderful Z08 airfield (from ORBX NSTU Pago Pago Scenery). Wonderful vegetation, mountains, sea, birds, houses, boats, all the details are covered Highly recommended!!!
  5. We're in on the island of Tutuila, American Samoa, where even the airport parking lots show up in lush green... Life is relaxed on the Pago Pago apron. The Navy has a P-8 Poseidon reconaissance aircraft refueled here. "So what are we going to do the next hour?" -"Hmmm, relax and watch the planes?" -"Great idea." United just opened a new service from Pago Pago to Honolulu and L.A. with Boeing 777-200LR. Most passengers have already boarded today. At the moment, containers with cargo and baggage are being loaded... ... which requires quite intensive supervision! After loading is completed, the 777 sets out to taxi to the runway. The taxiways are perfectly fitted for a widebody jet! A little bit of backtracking has to be done, though. Got to use all of the available runway length with the tropical temperatures here. Takeoff! Climbing out along the island's south coast. The flightdeck has the best views to offer... ...though the passengers in the First Class look outside from time to time, too. Drone view is always spectacular. Bye bye Pago Pago! I hope you liked my little tropical flight, thanks for watching!
  6. I've just finished installing all my P3D software on a new computer. When it came to NSTU I chose the option to download and install as I couldn't find a saved zip for this airport. I now know why! The product has now been installed and I've found where you place it. But my problem is I would like to save the download. I assumed it would be a single zip (like everyone else does) but after pointing the installer to my downloads folder I now have multiple zip files with meaningless names. How can I determine which relate to NSTU and should I need to install this airport again how do I do it? I don't want to leave these zips where they are now. I have to say having purchased flight sim software for over 20 years this system is unique and not particularly user-friendly. I like to keep backups of my purchases but this system makes it difficult.
  7. Gents, I completed a flight yesterday from Honolulu to NSTU in Concorde and landed on Rwy 23. I'm beta testing a moving map utility - under NDA so can't identify it - and used its Taxi feature to show me the path to stand B1. It advised it couldn't find a suitable route using the supplied AFCAD. On looking at the AFCAD using Scruffy Duck's ADE there are lots of orphan and open links. This might explain the problem my moving map software had. There doesn't appear to be any alternative AFCADs for NSTU. Bit disappointing given the quality of the package. I haven't the skill to repair all the broken links. Any suggestions?
  8. Hello, first off, I'd wish to thank you for the PNG products, it has been a hugely surprising pleasant experience, and I hope that you will release more of that kind (South America, maybe?) then, and please excuse me for asking from you, not because I think about a Orbx issue: flying PMDG737 YBBN-NTSU, all programmed into FMC (airac 1712, STAR included to runway ILS 5), I ended being quite misaligned with the runway on approach, with an offset of 5-10 degrees, so I did the landing manually not the first time it happens, yet, as far as I remember, absolutely the first one with Orbx airports, and (maybe) one of the few with major payware airports so, not knowing what has to be addressed, I start asking from you, whether it's about disagreement between navigation systems and geography, or anything else which I did not find by searching thanks
  9. After 16 years doing sightseeing rides around the San Diego area you'd think I'd have had enough. But now that I've hung up my spurs I find myself back in the saddle, virtually, doing the very same thing. Fact is, one of the attractions to flying—beyond the challenge—is what you see out the windscreen. And the ORBX FTX Global base pack and Pago Pago add-on offer incredible vistas of the South Seas islands of Samoa and covers over 1000 square miles including 17 islands, five incredibly detailed airports jungle strips, and two international airports. On an extended oil-exploration charter that originated back in Boston, we've flown over 14,000 miles in well over 100 hours. But the beauty of Tahiti encouraged further sightseeing...I mean exploration...and Pago Pago was the logical stop, Bali next, and then New Guinea. And boy, am I glad we made the trip to Pago Pago. The place is both challenging and beautiful. Airborne out of NSTU at 0900 it was hot, humid, and hazy after overnight thunderstorms. But the weather forecast for a day-long round-robin looked good with scattered to broken mid-level clouds. A short 75nm jaunt ENE and a swing around the island put us on final to the Western Samoa airport of Fitiuta (NSFQ) Where the 2350' strip gave us some short field practice before some slightly shorter fields ahead The trickiest part in many places was turning the long-winged Gooney Bird around in the tight runway clearings. But we managed, and after a short shutdown to say hello to the friendly residents, we were off again. A 15nm hop to the next island NW Put us on final for 2000' Ofu (NSAS) The next leg was an hour further northwest To Fagali'l (NSFS) on the north coast of Falelolo Island (American Samoa) After coffee in the pretty little terminal, we flew another 20 minutes NW to 2000' Asau (NSAU), where we stretched our legs and shared the ramp with a Twotter. Headed back southeast, we did a touch and go at Moata (NSMA) And then headed to Faleolo (FSFA), which would be our jumping off point for the flight to Bali

  14. Thanks for the "smoother" water around Samoa Here are some shots from a flight from Fitiuta on Manu'a island, passing Ofu/Olosega then on over Pago Pago to Faleolo on Upolo The coast looks a damn side better after this patch. Pics more or less cropped DX10s Cheers Mallard
  15. Looking through my attic I found some faded pics of the unique EC24-A. It appears to have been on a flight from Tahiti to American Samoa... On the ramp at Fa'a'a Moorea in the background Raiatea and Ha'apu on the horizon ...and then a whole lot of nothing... The Rose Atoll Ofu/Olosega and Manu'a Tutuila with little Aunu'u Cropped and quite heavily edited DX10s Cheers Mallard PS - the first five pics are using some other developer's scenery...
  16. I was possessed the scenery of Pago Pago, winner of the May 2015 screenshot contest. The update 1.10 is impossible. Thank !
  17. Some from a flight with the Albatross to Swains Atoll The (ASN) weather and visibility cleared a bit some 50 miles out from Pago Pago Just skimming over the palm trees with full flaps to make the most of the landing on the lagoon More or less cropped DX10s Cheers Mallard
  18. Tim and I have a new project almost ready for beta and therefore screenshots, after months of development my "v" key needs some tuning, We both agreed that NSTU water needed some love so theres a NSTU update also ready. o kill 2 birds with one stone I though I'd share some of my testing shots around Pago and include some of the POI's that havn't been screen shared. As usual because I have a wide screen monitor these shots will look better if you click on them and scrol through using the arrow keys, hope you enjoy. cheers Ken
