Then comes the day when one has to leave the land of Oz. At least in a stylish plane - just chartered for this special flight.

I find Singapore is the perfect hub in south east Asia. Let´s decide where to go next!

Sad to see you go Gerold - but you went in style with a great livery and some of those shots WOW!  No.2 is my favourite

No worries TT, the virtual return is only a few clicks away for all of us! But there is another place to explore...

The second shot combines the (aged) photoreal from OZx and AUv2, and it still blends well. I like that!

Great shots  Gerold, hurry back we like having you here.

Don

Thanks Don, good to hear that. I am hurrying (enough time to "fly" currently...), but actually neither to Australia nor to Europe.

The day for returning to your continent will come.

Really enjoyed these pics - very timely.

I was due to leave 2 days ago for Singapore, Kuala Lumpur then Borneo, but somrthing microscopic got in the way and stopped all that.

(Did get all my money back so I can now get P3Dv5 as a consolation)

Thanks Wain. Yes the 787 is a nice plain, and the QW version works and looks great!

Surprised to read you Aussies get stopped by something microscopic. I thought that even bigger creatures like  tiger snakes, crocs or funnel webs would not interfere your ways, how could something smaller?!

Good travel plan, keep it in your shelf as I do with mine (flight to Canada was booked for end of this month).
