Almaty to Dushanbe via Kashgar

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

from a flight UAAA Almaty - UTDD Dushanbe with a landing at ZWSH Kashgar. Most impressive views at Tian-Shan and Pamir mountains.

 

Checking the weather at night - not that good.

And even worse at day - but however, weather at UTDD is said to be unusual good

Above Tian-Shan

Inylchek Glacier with Chan-Tengri and Victory Peak (landclass slightly incorrect as all these mountains are said to be covered by heavy snow)

Early morning start at Kashgar. I bought this airport five years ago without having an idea why - now I know.

The highest Pamir summits - Kongur and Mustagh-Ata

Marx and Engels Peaks in southwestern Pamir. Those names are quite important for me as former GDR citizen!

And here are Mt. Korshenevskoi and Mt. Ismoil Somoni (former Peak Kommunism)

Approach to Dushanbe - a less or more complicated curving into a mountain valley (Kofarnihon).

... and indeed, there's extraordinary good weather this time at Dushanbe. When visiting the destination the last ... ten... times, I always experienced dense fog and no mountain sight there.

Dushanbe airport. Very pittoresque - mountains in background and colourful planes. Sadly there's no newer scenery showing the new terminal.

Obviously the last Tajik Tu-154 operative

Now I will prepare an An-2 for a flight into the mountains! And then up to the new Baku!

 

Have fun!

Regards,

Harald

The 6th screenshot, the one with the 134 flying into the sunrise: BEAUTIFUL & almost looks real!

 

What's with all the green radiation symbols on the 134s flight engineer panel? Is she nuclear powered?  :h01162:

.... lights in the overhead panel

 

You can tell I haven't flown a Tu-134 ! LOL (I'm not a real pilot!)

 

Thanks edetroit. The radiation symbol must be caused by the lens I guess. Or is that to show that the bulb is "radiating" light?

Thanks Ed, HLJames and Mark for your nice comments.

 

Ed, I hope that the fix had a sufficient dose.

 

 

 


airport detail!

 

And if you consider that UAAA and UTDD airports are freeware...

Who knows... Honestly, I think that is an optical technique inside the reflector that allows lighting a quite big light with a very small bulb.

 

By the way:

Engineer's panel at the left.
