Very nice series of screenshots! Those first few look like a lot of action due to the thunderstorm.

Wow, wow, wow, Aharon. You surely must be the Spielberg oi screenshots. Love that lightning. What weather engine were you using? And is that an Aerosim DC-8F?

 

Jomo Kenyatta, my old hometown airport which was in my day called Embakasi International. Sad to see what's transpired there the last few days. Nairobi, I meant.

Thanks all for very kind words!!

 

It is much appreciated!!!  I always enjoy making screenshots to share my flight progress with the rest of the world!!

The plane is good old fashioned freeware from Historic Jet Group website and I am using FSX default weather.  The lightings were edited and added from editing software.
