A little detour to QLD´s outback


Recommended Posts

Inspired by an article in the Australian Geographic Magazine 165 (Nov-Dec 2021) with some fantastic photos of Queensland´s outback I set up a little flight from Hughenden...

... to Porcupine Gorge. Indeed, the combination of AUv2 and the vector data gives quite a good impression of a dry river bed.

I had never heard of this attraction before. It pays off to be a proud member of the Australian Geographic Society!

First off Gerold, love that livery on your aircraft! Perfect fit for this Aussie exploration flight. Additionally, very nice discovery and flight, checking out the geographic features you mentioned here. Great stuff! Keep up the exploration :)

Great shots Gerold along with perfect timing with MSFS WU7 OZ hitting on Monday . You better get your copy before they are all sold out . :):rolleyes::P:D

I am optimistic they have pressed enough DVDs to meet the initial demand, John.

And: Thanks for the quick comment!

Thanks a lot for your comment, Landon. The Cessna 185 is THE workhorse for shorter flights into rugged terrain. And I promise to add some more flights to places I read about!

Super shots Gerold, enjoyed looking at them.

Thank you John. For a flight this was short, on the road it would take us a bit. But how cool that would be...
