Flying Panamerican with an old DC-6

Recommended Posts

Hi, here are some screenshots from my All American tour with an old DC-6 (correct, not the DC-6B). Perhaps you have followed my route from Europe over the Atlantic to Alaska; here is the sequel.

 

 

Starting in Anchorage, Alaska

At Villavicencio, recently home of some old propliners. Today, only an old Antonov crowds the apron.

To Ecuador - over the Andes

Couldn't resist to re-open old Mariscal Sucre airport in Quito...

... where, in my sim, some regional flights and/or defunct airlines as well as some heritage planes still operate.

I hope you have fun!

Gee, a real airplane with real propellors and real engiines that gulp fuel and oil by the gallon.  Fine series.

Wow, you covered quite some distance, Harald  :wink:  :wink:

 

Every time I see you screenies, I have to remind myself: no it's not FSX or better, this is the good old FS9 machine you marvel at. As always, very well done my friend

I like the "Near California coast", something different. And looks real too!

 

Btw I wanted to ask you for some time - what trees are you using?

 

Cheers,

Sascha

Again many thanks. Yeah, this is an old plane within and old simulator, but it is so much fun flying it.

 

Sascha, I frankly don't know anymore which trees these are. It's some freeware, and I have forgotten which one...
