Nordic Expedition 4: SAS 4409 – TOS to OSL

Nice shots! I'm currently flying in Sweden, next week going back up North within the Arctic Circle. These shots capture the general feel of Scandinavia pretty well. I actually caught that exact Boeing 737-800 last monday at Stockholm Arlanda:

Thanks everybody!

Great picture, what a coincidence!

My last flight was to Longyearbyen (northernmost airport with scheduled service) in the sim, so I just got back from the Arctic Circle.

 

great how beautiful fs2004 can look although its almost 10 years old!

 

You're right. The flight before this one was in FSX (because FS9 didn't let me fly as far North as Spitsbergen without acting crazy), and apart from the water, higher-res textures (for example the HD VC of the NGX) and more autogen, it's not really that much of a difference. Most of this stuff is not really noticeable at all during an IFR-flight.

fsx? you should use the ngx then, its a huge difference to the ifly 737

 

It was just this one time. I'll stick with good 'ole FS9 for the moment.

And while the NGX indeed is a great bird, the iFly is fantastic too. Apart from the higher resolution VC there really isn't that much of a difference between the two.

Sorry about that, forgotten that rule.

It's quite weird, spending some time up there. At this time of year you can look out the window at 01:00 and find that it's actually lighter outside then it was at 23:00. It just doesn't get dark. I just had a long flying day, from 14:00 until arriving at the hotel at 3:00 local time, and I haven't seen night yet, just the sun dipping behind the horizon for a little while before coming back :-P. Really takes some getting used to, and then to imagine how it must be even farther up north.

Wait, so you're going there for real? :biggrin:

I thought you were talking about you sim-flights.

My northernmost real travel was to Bergen last month. They already sold postcards of the sun "bouncing"-off the horizon, instead of going down completely. A friend told me that you only have to drive 1 hour North from Bergen to witness that. I imagine it's hard to sleep in the summer, with the sun never going down...

Yes, for real, haha. I've started a job about a month and a half ago for a company that has several routes in Sweden. Most are government funded to keep those regions easily reachable. For instance, a leg that takes us only 8 minutes by plane is a 55 minute drive. One of them is just above the arctic circle, about 200km north of that imaginary line.
