Porter Glacier Mission

Todays mission was a mountain party resupply run- departing from Tekapo in New Zealand’s Southern Alps, flying up the lake to a snowfield landing on the Tasman Glacier, and then returning to Tekapo. My aircraft of choice was the brilliant Milviz PC-6 from Orbx Central, using the variant fitted with skis. The scenery of course is Orbx's NZ Mesh, accented with a light dusting of snow to bring out the contours of the landscape.

 

 I’ll let the screenshots tell the story:

Thanks chaps- I certainly can recommend winding the sim calendar back to mid winter and sprinkling a few meters of snow on the ground here, then taking an early morning flight yourselves. Magical conditions!
