  1. Orbx-partner Aerosoft has upgraded the scenery at North Germany the Island group 'East Frisian Islands' situated closeby the German mainland and is an eastern continuation of the 'Wadden Islands' of The Netherlands. The group consist of 8 Islands that I have overfown in a Britten Norman BN2 from West to East and hereby the screenshots of them beginning with an orientation map marked with the original names of the Islands: 1. Borkum 2. Memmert 3. Juist 4. Norderney 5. Baltrum 6. Langeoog 7. Spiekeoog 8. Wangerooge
  2. Orbx Alaska mesh This nicely polished PMDG DC-6B wears the markings of her Northern cousin, the last Canadair C-5 North Star "CHARLIE FIVE". C5 was the only pressurized aircraft in the Canadair fleet of North Stars of the DC-4M/Argonaut/C-54GM/C-4 variants. It was also the last produced, and only C-5 variant of the North Star fitted with PW R-2800 Double Wasp radial engines. To the members of 412 Squadron, the aircraft was known as “Charlie Five”. During much of its fifteen-year career with 412 Squadron, based at RCAF Station Uplands Ontario, this reliable queen of the executive aircraft fleet carried delegates for VIP Transport Services. Most of the political leaders of the Western world were carried by the prestigious airliner. Some of the names recorded on C5's manifest included, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth and H.R.H. the Duke of Edinburgh in 1951, Sir Winston Churchill, Sir Anthony Eden, Emperor Haile Selassie, the Netherlands Royal Family, Minister C. D. Howe, and all the Prime Ministers of Canada from 1950-65. Following its official retirement from RCAF service on 28 April 1966, this once stately VIP-class airliner was sold and unceremoniously scrapped in the United States. What a pity. A much less famous (and much less lavishly equipped) North Star is now with the Canada Aviation and Space Museum in Rockcliffe, Ontario and parked in their reserve hangar, while undergoing restoration. Luckily, in MSFS Charlie 5 is still in her prime! Flying along the picturesque Pacific coast, we cruise at the moment south of the Grand Plateau Glacier towards the Glacier Bay Nat. Park Entering the Glacier Bay Nat. Park
  3. Not so far from where I live, about 500 to 250 Km away are the beatiful shores of Bretagne and Normandie. As msfs-scenery enhanced by Orbx-partner 'VFR France'. Hereby some shots of my first discovery flight at the shores beginning in Dinard, passing StMalo, Brest, Vannes to end a first journey at Mont St Michel in Normandie:
  4. With the recent flurry of aircraft releases for MSFS, I’ve been neglecting my old favourite PA28R. Today I took her up for a shakedown flight from Burbank, around the Los Angles terminal flyway routing to Catalina Island. Both airport sceneries are from Orbx, having used KBUR as my West Coast sim base for a while- but only picking up KAVX recently thanks to a Steam pressy card gift for Christmas. This flight today was my first time seeing it in the sim. Needless to say, it looks just as good on my system as it does in the Orbx promo screenshots!
  5. First off I can't find any map showing the area of Alaska that my mesh is installed for, so sorry if this is incorrect......it doesn't show for me in Orbx Central...... Skypark gave me some nice short legs to get to grips with my latest arrival to the hangar....I do really like this plane, has everything you need for this type of flying, handles really well and I even landed nicely without bumping my head.....one wish though would be to have the pilot in more wintry style of gear......I didn't use live weather as it was saying foggy and wanted to enjoy the view...
  6. Arrival Munich...a new Aircraft & Airport have joined the fleet. Sorry about the speed brakes not being retracted, new aircraft...yah, read the checklist! [Click] to see the larger picture. Thanks for viewing & commenting, Darryl
  7. So I was flying back from Venice to EDDK, by Aerosoft (via Orbx central)....fist shot shows airport off to the side, we went out and around, 2nd shows last few seconds arriving before the sim crashed, (angry face), last shot was me reloaded and parked....I use a program called A Pilots Life for my flights, but if you get a CTD like I had you have to fly it again, luckily it was only a short flight..... hopefully next time I can get closer without a ctd for some better shots...
  8. Orbx Himalaya mesh It will be a bit of a challenge for the good old Auntie Ju, but she will handle it
  9. Munich Night Scenes...I'm glad I made this purchase, turns out to be a decent scenery after all! [Click] to see the larger picture. Thanks for viewing & commenting, Darryl
  10. Rise and shine, it’s burning daylight. It’s time to finish our second leg into Caloundra We have reached Brisbane On long final into Caloundra
  11. My first screenshots-posting of this new year is, in analogue to my earlier posting of Glasgow airport, the equal fine modelled airport of Edinburgh-EGPH by Orbx-partner Pyreegue.Dev.Co. and I was surprised by the large area with a multitude of gorgeous representation of the reality. Enjoy my tour via follow 25 shots: I leave this marvel with a heli to my next airport to visit, hereby my congrats to the team of Pyreegue.Dev.Co. for their airport-scenery achievements.
  12. The fantastic Kodiak 100 is available from the Orbx store. I have been to this beautiful part of Australia twice, this really looks spot on! We fly along the North Stradbroke Island, which is part of the Moreton Bay Marine Park I think I am not going to Caloundra today. Never allowed in real life, but I am going to land here and spend the night. Should be fun. In the radio I hear “Starry, starry night” by Julio Iglesias, lovely. See you in the a.m.
  13. Hello to all fellow pilots! I'm excited to announce my new project - Glasgow Airport. It's been a while and my mailbox has become full of "when, what, where" e-mails. For all those who have been asking , this "little" announcement should answer most of your questions. With some 30 airlines serving over 100 destinations worldwide, including Canada, the US, the Caribbean, Europe and the Gulf, Glasgow is Scotland’s principal long-haul airport as well as Scotland’s largest charter hub. I've prepared a few shots of Glasgow's gorgeous terminal building and its interior as well as some static aircraft models with airside operations vehicles. As always I am aiming for a feature-rich rendition of this airport that will bring it to life in Microsoft Flight Simulator. No release date and price questions, I don't know any of these either . More pictures will follow later. Stay safe, cheers!
  14. In the northern area of Hawaii Big Island is the airport Waimea-Kohala (PHMU) smaller than the the 2 other airports on this Island: Hilo Intl on the east side and Kona Intl on the west side, but very charming and fine modelled by Orbx-partner 'Northern Sky Studio' and especially the internal views are of the best quality I have seen sofar in MSFS-airports:
  15. I can’t show you the whole trip, as that would violate Orbx regulations, but at least I can show you three cities that are available on the Orbx site: Hong Kong, Macau and of course Singapore. Luckily I am old enough to have experienced my fare share of Kaitak landings, most of them went uneventful. Famous buildings are the Bank of China and the HSBC building, but at least for me there is another building of interest. It’s the white one with the small round windows in front of the plane’s nose. That’s the headquarter of the trading house Jardine Matheson. It played a role in the 1988 mini series Noble House, in which Pierce Brosnan played the Taipan of the Noble House. James Clavell used the history of Jardine Matheson as basis for his famous books. Over Macau About to reach Singapore
  16. The Sim Skunk Works Fiat G 91 can be bought from Orbx. Taipei city scape is a free Orbx add-on. Hengchun is a small airport at the southern tip of Taiwan. Sungshan in the north is an airport in downtown Taipei and is only open for domestic traffic. The big building is the Grand Hotel. Owned by the government it is one of the prominent buildings in Taipei. It has an exact copy in Kaoshiung, in the south of Taiwan. The white, flat building in front of the hotel is the Taipei-American Club, a favorite hang-out among the local and expat business community. You can even see its tennis courts. The Gina is almost as difficult to land as the Starfighter. Nice challenge
  17. The latest marvelous modelled airport from Orbx-partner 'Pyreegue Dev Co' is Scotlands airport Glasgow-EGPF. Many fine corners to discover. I arrive in the Easyjet A320neo at Gate 24 in the evening and makes a tour in- and out the airport-buildings. Sorry for the lot of shots but it's hard to show less :
  18. More Dusk/Night Scenes..[Click] to see a Larger Picture Thanks for viewing & commenting, Darryl
  19. I have never been in the sim to McCarthy, but I picked it because the flight route passes along lots of glaciers. So it should be interesting. My plane of choice is the new freeware Fouga Magister by Restauravia (see also TTM’s earlier post). If you want her, go get her from this link, boys: http://restauravia.fr/index.html Live weather, and for some reason all water bodies are frozen. Very strange Hard to believe that this is freeware And THIS is my destination??? Oh well, I am low on fuel anyhow What do you mean, you only have diesel fuel available…
  20. Paris Orly Cloudy-Bright...my favorite MSFS2020 Airport due to the great textures and impressive static aircraft. This is followed by Drzewiecki Design's Moscow Sheremetyevo & Tokyo Narita, Aerosoft's Cologne Bonn and Flightbeam's Denver. [Click] to see the larger picture. Thanks for viewing & commenting, Darryl
  21. This Spitfire with the distinctive leaping black panther emblem of 152 Squadron flew in Burma during WWII, in the RAF Third Tactical Air Force. During the Battle of Imphal, the squadron operated from front-line strips and supported the Fourteenth Army during its final conquest of Burma. It was disbanded on 10 March 1946 in Singapore where it had moved after the Japanese surrender. The Spitfire PR.XIX PS890/F-AZJS flew again on 6 August 2020 at Duxford with J. Romain at the controls. Has been made according pictures of the real UME livery and with some parts of the wonderful textures of the A2A Spitfire Mk IIb RAF 152Sqn PS890 that Tom Weiss made for FSX/P3D a few years ago. It has been a long work to make it suitable to the new Model of Aeroplane Heaven. There are still some minor mistakes and scraps but I am already happy of the results. Great plane ! Great mesh !
  22. From partner CanadianFlightSimStudios of published sceneries via Orbx is CYAZ one of the fine modelled airports in BC in Canada and is situated halfway the Pacific Rim of Vancouver Island. 110 NM West of Vancouver City and 170 NM NthWest of Seattle City, so a relative nearby location for scenic flights and a stop worth at this Tofino/Long Beach airport.
  23. I was so busy the last couple of days to explore the northern part of the Indian subcontinent, that I almost forgot about this other Orbx gem. So, here we go: default MSFS, Orbx Alaska mesh and the good old Oz HD Goose. Weather is a bit rough, but this is a just short hop. Finally, the weather has improved Ooops, did I say that the weather has improved?
  24. Aeroflot & Moscow...a great looking Moscow Sheremetyevo Airport by Drzewiecki Design. These guys (developers) are really on there game! [Click] to see the larger image. Thanks for viewing and commenting, Darryl
