SoFly weather theme: hot and humid. We depart from Taipei’s city airport, called Sungshan, which is usually reserved for domestic flights

The famous Grand Hotel, owned by the Taiwanese government. More popular is the white building to its lower right, it's the Taipei American Club, gathering place for many foreigners, who work in Taipei

Great route

Thank you for sharing Hong Kong

I am considering that one. I was just waiting, expecting for Fly Tampa to make the area but.....there is a good free add-on for Kai Tak. Another developer just made Hong Kong airport and SamScene made this cool city landmarks so I think the waiting for Fly Tampa's is reaching the end.

I'll give a closer look to SS's version. I have all of his other cities so I think this one won't disappoint me

 

Cheers

Great flight & description, Bernd. Just a pity you did not take the old lady down in Kai Tak...

Many thanks, Gerold. Yeah, I could have landed in Kai Tak, but as it is no longer operational, SamScene, the developer of this Hong Kong scenery, decided to not include it. There is now a nice freeware version available, which I of course use, but I cannot show it here, as it has nothing to do with Orbx.

Super shots of your flight, the scenery looks great.

Many thanks, John. I am pleased with the scenery too. It's fantastic that we can now explore the entire world with decent enough default scenery below us that we actually enjoy the flight :)

Thank you, Carlos. Yes, the scenery is very nice. Even the colors and billboard signs change periodically and you have the ferries cross the harbor.

A splendid set of views Bernd.

Excellent city sceneries and I love the DC-7C, the first plane I flew on so many years ago!

Many thanks, my friend. The first passenger plane I flew on was the 707 :)

Thanks Mike, I'm glad, you like them. That's a freeware plane, which I use in conjunction with the panel of the Flight Replicas DC 4. Of course I am using it only for myself. And should Flight Replicas ever decide to bring out this plane for MSFS, I will certainly buy it again.

Oh another question Bern

Did you get Hong Hong through Central or through SamScene?

If through Central does it bring a sort of control panel to remove the Kai Tak area and use the free one or not?

I asked because the developer told me that if I through marketplace it is not possible to do that but I wonder if the same happens with Central

Thanks
