Northern Germany to Southern Austria in a Tupolev

Recommended Posts

To be more precise from my hometown Münster in Westphalia to beautiful Klagenfurt near the Wörthersee. The plane is a fairly huge Tupolev 114 in my own fictional private livery, which I believe she wears quite well

 

The Tu114 will take the entire runway of 3,600 meters in order to get air-born, a bit scary

As one can see, the area around the airport and actually also much of Westphalia is fairly rural. Westphalia is the northern part of the state “Northrhine-Westfalia”

Crossing the „Sauerland“, a hilly, sparcely populated area to the southern end of Northrhine-Westphalia

We leave Frankfurt and its busy airport well west of us

Fürstenfeldbruck AFB, west of Munich, was my former stomping ground

Below is part of the “Ammersee”. We get close to the Alps

The cockpit is huge

We have reached the south-eastern part of Austria with the “Wörthersee” below the plane

Great, difficult, study plane to master. Sort of wish A2A or PMDG would do this plane.

John, this is P3D 2.5 with ORBX Global, Open LC Europe and for the approach to Klagenfurt also Austria Professional HD included

The plane would be very complex to model I guess. But if a2a or PMDG would ever do it, this would be Eastern, Xmas and my birthday all on the same day  :wink:

What a classic plane! Nice to see the big Tupolev after sitting so many hours in the little Tupolev. I hope that this is only the beginning of a whole summer journey! See your Tu-114 in Almaty or Khabarovsk?

 

And by the way: Did they have airstairs high enough at Klagenfurt? :smile:

Very scary, as the runway length is only 2,170 meters. The extension to 3,600 meters was not approved :smile:

 

Nice screenshots!

Thanks, Mark, I think so too and almost as fast

We will see, Harald. I have to check what sort of scenery I have for that part of the world for P3D. But Almaty should be doable I think. And no, they did not have airstairs high enough in Klagenfurt. I hope they will in Almaty  :wink:

hahaha, my bad, Thomas. You are absolutely correct, I forgot that. Now I know why I had to struggle to get airborne with an almost empty plane  :smile:  Thanks for pointing this out to me.
