Tu-134: The Mediterranean Sea

Recommended Posts

Sim: FS2004

Textures: FS9Evo

Sky/Clouds: HDEv2

Sceneries: Aerosoft (LPPT), Riad Ghenim (DAAG freeware), Napulevola/Gianni Mantellini (LIRN freeware), VFR scenery Italy Islands by Fulvio Mazzokan

Plane: SCS v.2.0

 

A wonderful scenic flight from Lisbon LPPT via Algiers DAAG to Napoli LIRN, unfortunately very strong headwinds from different directions made the Tu-134's autopilot and autothrottle system almost unusable. However, the final approach to LIRN with Mt. Vesuvio ahead made me forget all this.

 

Cloudless sky at LPPT - looks somehow artificial, just like a simulator

First view to Africa - at the approach to the one and only African airport I visited at this journey

It may have looked exactly this way when Interflug was still active (and if one takes the 737-600 for a -200)

Approach to Golfo di Napoli (at occassion of a very free attempt by ATC to simulate the SOR1E STAR with its characteristic S-shaped curves)
