Milford Sound to Lake Tekapo


Recommended Posts

This Boeing 247 is one of the most demanding planes I have had for a long time. Absolutely fascinating and as we will see towards the end, plenty of things that will go wrong if you don’t follow procedures.

Do we have GPS or autopilot? Forget it, but I can offer you fuses that you need to switch or replace, if needed.

Wonderful flight and shots of this newly released vintage aircraft Bernd :) You flew over some beautiful scenery before the "accident" so at least you have that positive memory :D ;)

Outstanding plane, location and landing, Bernd. I will have to watch this post on a bigger monitor tomorrow… :D

Many thanks, Gerold, But I'm not so sure, whether I like my landing a lot. On a more optimistic note, the roll-phase after touch down was very short :D

fantastic set of shots, looks a great plane but I feel I would end up worse off than you did...plane looks good to...

Once you get used to fly this thing it is actually quite fun, give or take the odd three fatal mistakes you seem to do all the time :banghead:

Loverly sequence and great pics bernd1151. I noticed you have a double up of runway centreline markings at NZMF which commonly happens if you have both blinn's incredible freeware Milford Sound Airport installed alongside the Orbx Mesh. Have a look for a folder called "z_default-nzmf" within your Community Folder and remove it to clear the conflict ;)
