  1. Now the weather is colder outside here, and Germany is out of the football tournament - means I will have more time left to fire up my sim. Initially for a flight out of the fantastic Juneau scenery with the airport, ... ... Mendenhall, ... ... Lemon Creek, ... ... and Juneau city itself. Heading south past the Taku Fjord, ... ... Five Fingers Island... ... and Petersburg. Descending over Kadin Island... ... and downwind... ...into Wrangell. Nice views on the way, paying off for the manual work necessary to install the Tongass Fjords scenery. Many thanks to "Poppet" @Elaine Dixon for the excellent guide on avsim!
  2. Misty weather at Skagway, perfect for filing an application as assistant pilot with the Mule Team. Low and slow we follow another cruiseship (maybe John B is on board?)... ... and pass Haines in a classical Alaskan sunrise. Eldred Rock. A navigation aid, even with helicopter platform. Flying low enough we can show the beautiful coast to our passengers on the left... ... before we carefully approach Barlow cove... ... and turn towards the flashlights of the capital. Juneau, with its tricky offset between approach indicators and runway. But those who want to fly for the Mule Team know all these procedures... ... and bring their trusty plane home safely.
  3. Here we have 34°C today. So I went virtually out to Yakutat, which looks a bit cooler on this summer day. Good that there is no Fly-and-MosquitoFlow over Alsek River. And the glacier with the same name looks like a welcomed refreshment. Directly afterwards we cross Grand Pacific Glacier. The peak to our right is Mt. Fairweather. Indeed, it looks fair here. Descending over Takhin Glacier... ... and over Haines... ... into the Skagway channel... ... and into the namegiving village.
  4. Some flight enthusaists had hired a vintage plane in Valdez for a scenic flight. And the views would not disappoint them. Already at takeoff towards the city, ... ... or whilst turning south to the oil terminal. No hikers around Allison Lake? So we better look back at Valdez, the airport and the hills behind. Following Richardson highway at Robe Lake, ... ... with a view back to Valdez Bay. Just a great piece of work by the Orbx team. I wonder if this field is covered with snow in colder seasons? However, the flight went on eastwards over Copper river, ... .... Bering glacier, ... ... and Icy bay. Well, with limited visibility here and not so scenic. The cloud layer went down to approx. 250 ft AGL. Where the treetops nearly clean up the belly of the DC-3. Nothing you would like in a real flight. But in the sim one can easily approach Yakutat... ... and find a good place to park.
  5. Out of Anchorage I took a plane with multiple landing options, you never know what happens up here. A slight cloud layer over the big city. Not longer a slight cloud layer over Chugach channel... ... on the way to Portage Lake... ... and Whittier. Harriman Glacier (and its neighbours) show up in the north. There was no real visibility during the remaining flight, so the next option to see scenery was on the descend... ... well controlled... ... into Vldez.
  6. Not Fahrenheit, as you will soon discover. For this flight i took a plane which did not really fit on the gate positions at Kiruna. But it was no problem to get the 777 taking off on the runway. As touristic travel into US is still forbidden, there were only 3 pilots and 3 businessmen on board. To make it valuable, the 777 was loaded up to the roof with Swedish chocolate, Lakritz and Schnaps. Kiruna is already quite far at the northern end of Sweden. And todays heading was still further north, initially towards Norway´s fjords... ... and over Tromsö. Next waymark was Spitzbergen / Svalbard. But then I went up to latitude 88°N, where the graphic replication of P3D came to an end. After passing the North pole as well as greenland landfall was at Deadhorse, Alaska. Even some traffic up here: Air Canada crossing our way, going from Tokyo to Toronto. Fairbanks... ... and Denali (right), trying to hide behind clouds. The flight started in the evening, and without a sunset the next morning came. Plains near Talkeetna, ... ... rains a bit further south. Here is a beautiful view of Anchorage´s promenade. Landing at 03:01 am local time... ... no problem. Due to the freight we were directed to a cargo position, the passengers (only 3 businessmen) had to take a forklifter to get to the arrivals hall.
  7. ... and to collect any prize. It has been quite some time since I had been invited to Alaska. And I could not resist. No more comments needed, since this is just the final into Valdez. Now it´s time to unload steaks and beer, get it all to the right temperature and learn from the the Mule Team.
  8. Leaving Homer PAHO Finally arriving at Whittier
  9. PAJN - PAYA in the QW 757 at dawn. Climing out of PAJN on the Asort Two departure. Turning Final on the ILS 11 at PAYA Short Final All ready to unload and all in time to watch the sunrise.
  10. A windy approach in dense fog and snow down over the infamous Tongrass Narrows into RW11 at PAKT Ketchikan International. P3DV4.5 | ORBX SAK & PAKT | REX SF 3D | QW 757 Into the soup... Down safe and sound. Now for the heavy lifting to begin.... someone must have gone ham in the boxing day sales!
  11. Hello, guys! Today small vintage over Alaska.
  12. Some various shots from around the PNW, SAK and Norway. Departing Oslo in some miserable weather. Approaching KESE Eagle County Regional. High above KASE. High altitude visibility flying from PAVD to PAJN. Petersburg Harbor, Tongass Fjords.
  13. Just a few random shots from my P3D v4 Screenshot folder.
  14. A true Alaska Airlines service from Yakutat... ... taking off the summer runway southwards over the Pacific... ... and turning 180° to the right in order to head north. Climbing, climbing, climbing, across Hubbard Glacier... ... into beautiful Summer weather. Not easy to get this plane up to 12500 ft. Which were needed to come across to Kaskawulsh Glacier, Canada. Descending and relaxing the pressure on the engines, towards Burwash Lake... ... and Haines Junction. Over the plains... ... to Whitehorse. Drop off some tourists here for the train ride down to Skagway - and ready to get another bunch for our next flight...!
  15. I cannot translate the German wisdom of freight pilots into english, maybe google can help you?! I just had to reach colder climate for some days. So I agreed to the request of FedEx to bring some huge fishing equipment northwards from Vancouver. We met at the FedEx station, ... ... and prepared for the flight whilst the freight was stowed. The unusual (short) runway 30 was selected by ATC. I was slightly panicking and apllied full power, but all went well and lead us directly north... ... across Nanaimo, ... ... Pender Harbour... ... and Powell River. The inside passage east of Vancouver Island, after reaching the first regular flight level. Prince Rupert in the lower left corner of the picture. That means the channels towards Terrace and Kitimat are behind us. Annette Island and Ketchikan ahead, ... ... with the first directly below. The Tongass Fjords area. Works well in P3D, but needs a decent manual installation, brilliantly summarized by Elaine Dixon. Coming to refreshing glacierlands, with the Saywer glacier to our right. Hoonah. The Grand Pacific Glacier. Looking grand indeed. Here we descend into our destination Yakutat, ... ... have a little look at the entire scenery, ... ... and follow the lovely YAK3 approach. Lined up. Ready for final. Finished work for today. No cheering of paxes, but also no claims. And refreshing cold air... We directly head for some beer, now that @flyingleaf Karls fishermen have left the city:
  16. Departing ANC to Hong Kong at dusk. Off 33, cleaned up and turning west. Sunrise over the Bering Sea or thereabouts This is about as high as the sun got. As I arced south, down through China, it slipped below the horizon again and I arrived in darkness. The height of my daylight over far eastern Russia So a second first in two days... my first sunrise in the west. I'm sure the regular long haul tube drivers see it a lot.
  17. I left Taipei at 2am, hauling freight to Anchorage on CI 5398 in the trusty 747 freighter. First time I think I've even seen a sunrise and sunset in the same flight. These are a few from the latter stages, since the rest was dark and/or over water: This is me getting (very) side tracked on my way from Tokyo to Singapore... At this rate I'll find myself at SFO next before heading across the Pacific again!
  18. Greetings! 1st post here...latecomer to the Orbx scene. Bought a bunch of stuff over the great holiday sale, most worked fine (KTEX, KJAC, etc) Also purchased SAK and Juneau. I installed SAK 1st, then Juneau...getting issues in screens below. Did some forum searches, tried a link with the ADE_FTX_SAK_PAJN_elevation_adjustment.BGL..no luck. uninstalled both SAK and PAJN, then reinstalled in that order, no luck. Did not manually delete any files. I do NOT have vector. Please refer to the listings screens of all the *PAJN*.BGL files on my system. 4790k TitanX, 16gb ram, fast SSD, partridge in a pear tree...etc Hmmm...is there a screenshot link limit? the post does not want to accept my other files. Hope to get it looking like the shots in the PAJN manual soon. Thanks in advance for any advice/help
  19. Hi, I have recently updated to FTX Cv3 and installed all available updates like ORBX libraries and scenery updates. Now there's a glitch in the airport ground elevation, see screenshot (@ PAHO). How can I fix this? Jules.
  20. That means doing a long ride from Anchorage... ... to Honolulu. Just some memories for Sniper. Hit the spot. Great to see the Alaskan cargo has been safely stowed in the trusty 772. Maybe the next flight offers the chance to use a more colorful bird.
  21. Yesterday I was leaving Valdez towards a bigger airport, being able to catch an overseas flight, and I chose a properly coloured plane, ... ... but how could I know that the original yellow flash was already around there?
