  1. Climbing out over Cayman Island I still wonder about these un-tropical trees, ... ... while the sea looks as expected. It is just a short hop up to Cuba, where we make landfall near Manzanillo at the Golfo de Guacanayabo. The Sierra Maestra at the southern coast looks great! Santiago de Cuba is the biggest city around, ... ... but I could not find out what these platforms are used for. A close look at the Gran Piedra mountains - maybe a too close look... ... but shortly after we pass Guantanamo Bay NAS. Downwind over the bay... ... and back into the airport, which is big enough to change to a plane of any size.
  2. Todays flight takes us from one tax avoiders paradise, Panama, to another one, Cayman Islands. Out of MPDA... ... climbing out with a view to Panama´s highest mountain in the background, the Volcan Baru. Leaving the land and getting over the caribbean sea. The weather is not revealing much of the scenery ahead, ... ... and the radar of the approach does not look inviting either. At least one can see a bit of a Cayman island´s coast... ... and around 500 ft AGL we finally see the runway of MWCB. Done. With just one question open: Are these realistic trees for a caribbean island?
  3. After recovering from some drinks with @carlosqr we head out to explore Costa Rica. We step out of his house and directly into the appropriate plane, ... ... climb out over San José... ... and turn left towards the Reserva Forestal Grecia. A great wide landscape. The Volcan Arenal is quite a prominent landmark in the country´s north. If one would call someplace 10° off from the equator as "north". Back down to the Pacific we cross a village called Miramar. A name with good reason. And soon after we meet the famous & safe port of Puntarenas. Following the coast we cross Parque Nacional Carara, ... ... and come close to the Estero Damas swamp near Quepos. Passing the mountains of the Reserva Forestal Los Santos... ... before we meet some fellow travellers invited by Henrik Nielsen. This ship traffic really fits to our exploration! Next we pass el Golfo Dulce ... ... in slight tropical rain, ... ... which does not make El Golfito less interesting, looks like an airport location worth an upgrade. We leave the clouds of Costa Rica behind... ... and approach Panama´s highest mountain (hidden behind clouds) in the NP Volcan Baru. Time to land in Ciudad David... ... surrounded by palms, but just another classical default airstrip. For interested travellers: Here we have todays routing.
  4. For this relocation from one region to another I took the trusty 777. Out of San Diego... ... and southwards across the Baja California ... ... peninsula. You can see the Pacific in the background. Hermosillo. For comparison I enclose a photo from a book documenting a tour around the world with an ultralight, a fascinating adventure to read. I can make the same comparison above the Western Sierra Madre. Fantastic clouds on the way further south... ... towards Acapulco... ... and the Nicaragua west coast. Finally we approach Costa Rica, ... ... follow the A27 to San Jose... ... and land at MROC Juan Santamaria International. Maybe I have the chance to have a drink with @carlosqr?
  5. Hello All, I've recently narrowed this down to a confliction between my Orbx Products. Owned Orbx Products Orbx Global base Orbx Vectors Orbx NA OpenLC Orbx NorCAl Orbx Store Order Numbers: 5cd2520b68335 | 5ccfa5ebcf56c ---- *****I do not have any other scenery products installed other than Orbx**** I'm sure this has happened to some of you with high mesh resolution settings. When a user flies over a runway with a "cliff" or sharp terrain changes on final, and at or slightly below the glide slope with a "heavy aircraft"; P3D will suck the aircraft in the ground. Here are various examples of what happens to my aircraft when I fly over a sharp terrain change (1m Mesh Resolution) on final: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-plWAfAxsXY&feature=youtu.be&t=1808 (30:08) if the link does not take you there. Made by a different user having a similar problem. More specifically, I first experienced it when on a KSFO RW28R final in the PMDG 747-8. Here are some detailed pictures of problematic areas (from a different user in a P3D bug report thread). Things I've Tried Vector Terrain Data Correction. KSFO is not listed. Verified all Orbx scenery files. Uninstalling and reinstalling Orbx Norcal Disabling Orbx NorCal. This completely fixes the landing problem, but I'd want to ideally keep the scenery Plus this causes for grass to appear on the runways. After I completely disabled Orbx NorCal, I re-enabled it to attempt to adjust the scenery load priority to have the "Mesh" component of NorCal be pushed all the way at the bottom. Although this fixed the grass on the runway, the elevation data confliction problem made a nasty reappearance. After a little more digging I instead moved the "CVX" component of NorCal to all the way at the bottom, which then fixed the elevation confliction, however thus by doing so "sinking" the textures below/ontop of the runway causing a nasty flickering and splotchy grassy runway. I am at a loss at to what to try next. Does anyone have a solution? It appears that buying FSG Pilot's mesh might be an expensive one... but am willing if I can get someone to confirm this as a fix. Thanks!
  6. Well, today it will be a climate change just for me and my passengers. We´ll take United flight 219 from O´Hare to Honolulu. Official departure time is 10:10 hrs. While the paxes have to wait in the departure lounge... ... the delicious food, especially the famous ice cream, is loaded... ... and we have to make our preparations in the office. Once again, O´Hare provides some navigation challenges for us. But we finally made it! Out of Chicago in fine January weather. There is not just any other plane on the same track. This is (another ) UA219, pushed in by UT live. On time, I can say. The Mississippi river over Iowa... ... before we leave the snowy conditions near Omaha. Crossing the plains of Colorado, ... ... approaching Salt Lake City, ... ... and finally Oakland. After some hours over the Pacific we can spot islands in the sun. Wow. Oahu. Getting configured to land... ... with everything under control. Parking is easier here than in KORD. And the weather is also slightly warmer. I think one could spend some time here...
  7. For the way back north from St. Louis we switch to an airliner, UA4789 to be precise (ok in fact they use an Embraer, but I have no choice). Crossing the Mississippi, ... ... and flying over Illinois´ plains. Here we already turn into the approach over Chicago, ... ... with O´Hare to our left (while flying downwind) ... ... and Meigs to the front. Establishing on final was not so complicated, ... ... nor was the landing. But looking for a parking lot here makes me totally confused!
  8. Just a short hop today between two airports that serve the same city. From St. Louis Regional... ... towards the city, ... ... and across the Mississippi. Well, that was obvious. Jack would probably do it with a 747, inverted. Welcome to St. Louis Lambert International, enhanced with GSX and SODE to give some more physical training to the passengers.
  9. Meigs is the natural base for an orbxflyer in Chicago. Climbout along Millenium Park, ... ... followed by (virtual) shopping at the Aurora Mall, ... ... and, in case you forgot something, the nearby Fox Mall Naperville. Well equipped we can leave Chicago and follow the I55 south, across Plainfield, ... ... Bloomington, ... ... Litchfield ... ... and Worden ... ... towards St. Louis Regional. A nice little inland tour!
  10. This city tour starts at Meigs, with its fine details. Greetings to Jack, sorry I might have mixed some 3rd party scenery in here (I cannot tell, because it all blends perfectly). And here you can enjoy OpenLC at its finest. Chicago appears just so realistic!
  11. We´ll be leaving from Holland, MI in southerly direction... ... and make a stop in Michigan City, just before the time zones change. Walking through the Indiana Dunes would follow, some huge sandy areas behind the KA200 - unfortunately missing in OpenLC. Soon after the outskirts of a city will be reached... ... where only the Orbx pilot can still land in the city center at Meigs:
  12. This will be a long flight, given that we start at Niagara Falls, US side. At least it covers a number of states... Turning west over Ontario would be a shortcut. Already doubting my navigation skills? At the outlet of Lake Huron we find the bridge of Sarnia, ON. Lansing, Michigan awaits, with its malls and shops. Grand Rapids Gerald R. Ford Intl. airport could be a place to stop, but not today, ... ... because we go on to Holland, Michigan, ... ... "Tulip City" the airport is called, for reason. Just a short hop towards city center. Mt. Pisgah is hard to see in the sim, to the right under the 530. Big Red is worth a view, unfortunately I can´t show you - you need to follow the link: https://www.holland.org/things-do/historical/big-red-lighthouse The shores of Lake Macatawa (in the heart of the city) provide bars with good food & drinks, well deserved after this "transcontinental" flight.
  13. Today we take the Union-Pearson-Express from Toronto International Airport T1, ... ... cruise past Woodbine racetrack... ... into the city center. We´d leave the "train" in Union Station... ... and move over to the Old City Hall, ... ... before checking in at Billiy Bishop (city) airport. To be continued, any sightseeing tips from locals are welcome!
  14. Nearly I was flying to the same airport as Martyn, ... ... to a place called Pearson. Wait and see... . I have set the weather to end of April, as I will be doing the same flight in real at that time. From Frankfurt... ... across Cologne, ... ... to England. Not much to see here, I assume this is due to its separation from OpenLC_Europe. As a consequence, there would be no much sunshine in the country as well. Better visibility awaits us at Sept-Iles, Canada. Landing instructions... ... before the downwind leg. Here we see the Toronto Islands with Billy Bishop airport. Quite limited visibility on approach. At least the localizer has been captured and G/S is armed... But it got better on final. A slight view on Toronto cityscape... ... before landing at Pearson. Toronto-Pearson this is, Martyn!
  15. Buffalo Airways C-46 departed Fort Smith for Manning. I love the far north of openLC NA. Great textures. Early fall weather. Nice flight. Light was already short when I flew it on 27 October. I like the plane, but this thing is a bear to land in anything other than a breath of wind.
  16. I thought I'd share with you a video of my approach and landing on runway 25 at Costa Rica's San José Airport (MROC). A bit high but it worked out. @carlosqr, this is especially for you!
  17. The next leg of our United Airlines rotation is a fictitious one: flight 194 from Honolulu to Pago Pago. Why leave the Samoa service to Hawaiian, after all? We're in Honolulu, Oahu. After doing most of the preparation work in the cockpit, the pilots leave the plane again only to board it a second time for the camera. The camera team didn't arrive on time... One second later the captain's trolley would plummet all the way down the airstair because, as you can see, he had loosened the grip on the handle accidentally... Arrival of the cabin crew. Yes, I like a "bob". We skip the part where we were flogging the passengers with a bull whip to make them board the plane faster and show you the hand signal of the ramp worker instead. Here we go. Takeoff runway is 8R. Lineup... ... gear up. Climbing over Waikiki. Gently banking in the clouds... That looks good! That looks even better! Evening breakthrough. Ah, this smells like vacations! Heading south. Left turn as seen from the jumpseat... It's evening over the South Pacific. The sun has set. The moon is our new companion. Some hours later, it's time for a descent through the clouds... We reach Tutuila. Crossing TUT VOR and the aerodrome of Pago Pago. We have been assigned the VOR D approach on runway 5. Perhaps their ILS is in maintenance? Just a few tiny lights in the dead of night. I'm always to busy to take pictures during the approach. Some minutes later, we're happily on the ground! That's it and as always, I hope you liked my flight as much as I did...
  18. Departing aircraft are a good proof that we're actually at an airport. The first passengers take their seats... ...while their baggage and freight for Honolulu is being loaded. Climbout to the northwest, direction Toronto. Westbound traffic below. Wonderful clouds. I love them. Nearing the Rockies. FTX Northern California here. King of the Skies. Lake Davis. Beautiful weather as we cross the snow border... ... that is soon replaced by a thick cloud cover as we approach the Pacific Ocean. Ship traffic. Perfect horizon. We reach Oahu eventually - Bellows Air Force Station can be seen on the north coast. We circumnavigate the east end of the island close to Koko Crater. A residential area named "Hawaii Kai". We begin the LDA approach on runway 26L alongside Waikiki - abeam Diamond Head here. The approach involves a handflown curve on short final. We have a METAR: PHNL 112253Z 19008KT 10SM FEW025 FEW040 28/18 A3000 Cockpit view! Speed pegged to VApp, sinkrate is -800'. This approach looks stable as a rock. Gear view! Tail view! Touchdown! On the center line with an 8K crosswind from the left. (Instant replay, that's why there are no spoilers visible) One of the more interesting taxiways. The abnormally inclined horizontal stab trim is due to Chaseplane's replay mode, I found out. So we arrived at the gate. Aloha! We're there and mighty proud. That's it, I hope you appreciate my flight and - especially! - my landing as much as I did.
  19. It's a wintry morning in Stockholm... ...the land seems frozen... ... visibility is reduced... ...snowflakes are dancing in the air. So is the Swedish winter! The United Airlines plane that's being catered at Gate Foxtrot 36 finds itself in this winter story... ...and is being de-iced right at the gate. The passengers inside the plane observe the de-icing crew doing their job without protecting their heads and hands against the cold. Those hardy Swedes! A few minutes later, the Triple-Seven is being pushed back from the gate... ...and starts to taxi to the runway. The snow gets no less on its way... ...flaps and slats are kept retracted to prevent icy material to attach to the flaps mechanism and potentially freeze there. How different the sight, only a few minutes later! A bright morning above the clouds. The airplane cruises high above the snowy landscape of Scandinavia... ...and above the ships that traverse the Atlantic Ocean. The New World is no less covered with snow than the old one. Somewhere over New England... ...the sky looks even colder than at the other side of the pond! Who might populate those snowy hills in this time of year, when even the bears retreat to their den? New Jersey and Staten Island ahead! And a massive bank of clouds... A/P off at 270' and touchdown. After more than 8 hours, the plane has made it from the wintry cold morning in Stockholm to the wintry cold morning in Newark. Content and relieved, the passengers leave the plane through a comfortable jetway... ...and probably face the worst part of their voyage on the highway to home. That's it, I hope you liked it. Cheers.
  20. Just some Asian (and North American) highlights, without much ado. PIA789 OPKC-CYYZ Baku The beginning of the Caucasus Range Scandinavia Greenland Labrador PIA790 CYYZ-OPLA Ontario Québec Oh no, the yellow flood! Mother Russia. Let's make an awesome turn. What remains of Lake Aral. It could benefit from some Orbx love. The Fann Mountains of Tajikistan. Dushanbe ("Monday"), the capital of Tajikistan. The Hindu Kush ("Hindu Murderer") in Afghanistan. Close to Lahore, the view goes in the direction of Islamabad and the Western Himalaya. Thank you for looking.
  21. Just a short flight from Val-d'Or (CYVO) to Ontonagon County Airport (KOGM) on the southern shore of Lake Superior in the Comanche.
  22. At the International Terminal in Boston. Cockpit preparations are underway. The aircraft is being loaded. Boston skyline as we line up runway 33L. Cleared for takeoff. Manual flight at FL210 to avoid some CBs. Leaving the bad weather behind. Cape Cod. Barnstable County. Nantucket & Tuckernuck. It's evening. Banking to the left. Night falls. Heading Sao Paulo, over Palmas. Sorry, no destination shots today.
  23. Hello, I just purchased openlc na and have severe blurry texture issues. Everything was fine under Global. It looks like it initially loads in my immediate vicinity but that's about it. If I circle around the area directly below me will eventually load,but once I'd fly off in any direction severe blurs again. I have searched many forums and tried many solutions with no luck. Everything from forced migration, affinity mask tweaks, deleting cfg and letting it P3D build a new one, all with no luck. P3d v3.4 i6600k @4.6ghz 32gb ram 980ti
  24. Brasilia, Buenos Aires, Boston! At the stand in Brasilia. Holding short before lineup. You can spot lightning in the distance... Descending towards Ezeiza with Aeroparque Jorge Newbery behind the wing. Up in the air again. Enroute. Carribean sunrise. Some fuselage shots (not only) for Martyn. Approaching Boston, we make a wide bow across the Atlantic Ocean. The final was so bad that I decided to go around. Not stable at 500'. We had to fly in a holding for a little while. View of the city. This time I do it better. The extreme trim position of the horizontal stabilizers is entirely PMDG's fault. At the gate. The tower building of Boston's Logan Airport always fascinated me. The airport is well monitored it seems. No cursing, no foul language was heard on the radio! Just a calm day at the airport, it seems. Funnily, I had thought that this warm hearted movie was set in New York until I noticed it's Boston actually - only thanks to that easter egg. Cheers Lars
  25. In the last chapter we finally reached Juneau, after a diversion to Whitehorse due to the weather, and produced some disappointed customers. Today these customers should be happy that we came back to pick them up! Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome aboard our flight back to Frankfurt, finally. Our route will take us roughly to the east to the Great Slave Lake, before turning north towards the Canadian Arctic Archipelago, over Greenland and crossing the Atlantic north of Iceland. We're then heading south along the coasts of Norway and Denmark. Flight time will be around 9 hours 20 minutes. As a compensation for your overnight stay in Juneau, Condor offers you a free extra sandwich. Enjoy the flight! "Mommy, when do we get our sandwich?" "Look at that, a cabin with smoke..." "Did I brief you for departure?" --"Umm yes?" This is a steeeeeep turn! Thankfully we made it over that mountain in the last pic and got a little direct to Yellowknife. "Why didn't we get a big direct to, say MERGI?" "Last night in the hotel, I had a nightmare. Do you want to hear it?" --"Does this involve a woman called Hilda?" "No! I dreamed that someone would steal our plane! Then he takes it to some rural town in America and makes aerobatics with it, and flaps 30 takeoff. Richtig krass!" "Flaps 30 takeoff? Hahahahahhahah! What a nonsense dream!" We cross the Great Slave Lake... ... and reach the northern side a few minutes later. Yellowknife is just to right of this picture... Much farther north... Welcome to Denmark! The sun is located in the north-east in this shot, at about 2:30 am local time. Leaving Greenland... Soaring south along the Danish coast... Rømø behind and Sylt below, we cross the German boarder. The Weser River, Bremerhaven at its mouth, the Jadebusen behind and in the background, the East Frisian Isles. The city of Bremen below. Northern Germany. On our descent near Frankfurt... The landscape is already quite different to the North German Plain. The Main River. At the near side, Bavaria, on the far side, Hesse. Touchdown runway 25L. Lufthansa 123 Sausage, eh Super, cleared for take off! "Hey, we are unloading your baggage for you! Didn't you like your sandwich?" That's it. The last flight of the Condor (so far)! I hope you enjoyed it chaps. Cheers!
