Boldly looking for a South American airport. Part one.

Couldn't find the "Capital" so I flew Carlos's route he suggested.

 

MSFS

Orbx's SA Mesh

 

SAWH Malvinas Argentinas Intl to SCBI Pampa Guamaco

Was pleasantly surprised to see the plane "spawn" on snow.

Thanks to the brilliant Garmin 3000 GPS it has a nice airport map showing taxiways and runways.

Capital idea to go boldly into the wilderness.

Hi Jack ! Great shots ... despite the snow :o :P !

 

For sure a lot of pleasure by flying in SA : go and visit Brazilian Amazonia or Chili or Bolivian mtns + deserts :) ... mexico ... 

 

e.g. you could see screenshots with some photos on the following links ... and possible planes' liveries in relationship to these countries :)

Hi Jean Marc and thanks.  It's been a while since I last saw your excellent posts with all the photos and the stories.

 

Carlos made me a nice suggested route for four separate flights and I've flown one so far and boy is it scenic, such beauty there.

 

As for liveries, well, I don't have those planes, and I've never been a big fan of the proper livery for the country I'm flying in.  I just pick something I like and fly it.  Sometimes if I happen to have the proper livery or registry I'll do it but for the most part for some reason I don't do it.  No offense to those who like the proper liveries in the respective countries, I just do things differently. :wacko:

nice to have Carlos' suggestions O0  Snow is a big surprise but quite commun in winter and mountains area...I've been hiking by there in march many years ago and it was very cold and snowing ... like on the following shot B) Guanacos wool is fortunately excellent :lol: 

 

Have plenty good - and adventurous - Andean flights ... with any liveries ... PS : the P-40 and the recent F6F are very pleasant to fly in msfs

That's a nice photo of some beautiful animals Jean Marc.  Are they gentle?  Do people herd them and use them for wool or food?

it is a fantastic continent to see wildlife everywhere :) ... easy if hiking and camping ...

We had the curiosity to eat some llama and nandu and crocodile ... the 2 first were excellent and not so for the croco (it was a part of the long tail :o O0 

Llamas are like donkeys or sheeps...but sometimes surprising

LE CRACHAT DU LAMA : LE CAPITAINE EN SAIT QUELQUE CHOSE… - TINTINOMANIA
