Police EC-135 visits the glider club

Recommended Posts

One fine day, the police paid a visit to Bowland Forest Gliding Club. They were on a training flight, but had the opportunity to use it as a bit of PR and warn us of criminal activity in the area. Apparently a couple of nefarious aviating brothers had turned their sights on stolen gliders; Norville and Dilbur Rong were believed to be at large in the north west of England.   :hi:

 

On approach, checking out the local prevailing winds. The scenery for the clubhouse, glider trailers, caravans and hangar area is quite accurate, as is the hedgerows bordering the airfield. (Neil Birch's freeware scenery https://flyawaysimulation.com/downloads/files/8386/fsx-bowland-forest-gliding-club-scenery/)

 

A pity I don't have any photoreal scenery to represent the the terrain as it should be, at least the actual terrain mesh is recognisable (thank you freemesh x!)

Into the hover & land. The hill in the background (Parlick) is not covered in trees, it is just moorland IRL !!

The crew kindly let us inspect their impressive machine.

Thank you , Officers & goodbye! The hill to the left in the background is Beacon Fell (it is covered in trees, more so than FSX would have you believe!). The hedgerow running across the screenie behind the fenestron borders Fiddlers Lane.

A short flight out to the coast near Fleetwood, then down to Blackpool (sadly, no scenery of any note on the sim).
