Goosing around Glacier Nat'l Park

Recommended Posts

I just picked up a G-21 Goose for X-Plane and took it out for a spin up in northern Montana. Pretty cool plane, though it was made for XP9.

I landed the Goose then took a Hughes 500 up for a closer look at things. I snapped this one while hovering over a small lake at the base of a mountain. There's something oddly familiar about this... something.... magical, perhaps?

Thanks! I'm a bit surprised no one's commented on that last picture, though. ;) Seems to resemble something controversial prior to FSX's release.

That is stunning. Flying around that region is almost in itself worth buying Xplane 10

Please do not react on a topic by placing new images.

 

The rules for the screenshotforum say:

This implicates the initial poster of the topic isn`t allowed to do that either.

 

edit:

Thanks this is OK.

Yeah, same location and POV. I spent a couple of days seeking out that original location just so I could see how it looked in XP with all the settings up. It was a PITA trying to hover that 500 in just the right spot. :D The added bonus is that Glacier Park is a great place to fly in general. Yet another one of those areas that's just been "flyover country" for me when I do airline flights, but which make for some nice up close flying in GA.
