What they call a dry run Gerold with no refreshments at the pub.:(

Some excellent scenery in your set especially the Drakensberg Mountains.:)

I have lost count the number of times I have had to "cheat" with the weather!

You don´t know what I got in the cabin, Martyn. That´s what I call a dry run, the best description of it:

Another lovely set - I really love the variety of RW African weather in the sim and the many different cloud formations it engenders with a good weather/texture program.  That pub definitely requires an expert eggbeater operator!

No need for pubs, I always carry a couple six packs on board. :D  Nice set of shots. :)

That should be on every proper checklist, even before "Batteries - on".

Thank you TT. The weather and the look of the clouds make a big part of the sim impression, indeed. And I have nothing to moan about with my setup.

And... good suggestion to visit the pub with unfixed wings... B)
