YBCS Cairns Intl - YBRM Broome Intl (Orbx, NGX) [CAUTION: MULTIPLE LARGE IMAGES]

Recommended Posts

Just made this flight and snapped some shots along the way.

About 1350NM so it's a good distance.

 

Lining up for the runway. Weather was terrible in Cairns...

Postive rate, gear up with the terminal in view and beaches in the background...

Climbout was very rocky and the STAR has you make a hard left almost immediately after clearing the field...

Making the left out over the bay with the airport barely in sight...

The storms were pretty low so it didn't take long to hit calmer conditions...

Probably one of the more boring routes around. Barren wasteland comes to mind...

Now in our decent, you can see a flooded river basin below as we bank left toward YBRM...

No STAR or ILS here. Just ATC vectors and the PAPI lights...

FO's view of the short final. Almost the entire city is in view...

Over the threshold...

Touchdown, spoilers out, and reverse thrust. Should of went Autobrake 3 as we took most of the runway to stop...

Taxiing off the runway...

Turning into our spot...

Shutdown complete, doors open, and airstairs down...

Afterwards I jumped in the trike and took some overview pictures. The texture detail is amazing. Probably some of the best ever done in FSX...

Thanks.

Broome is amazing. Just wish there were some other airports closer to get to it.
