La dolce vita, here we come!

Recommended Posts

Saturday, 22nd April 1900hrs BST (you work it out, I can't)

Although spring is here, in Innsbruck it's still fairly chilly. So it's off to sunny Italy for a taste of La Dolce Vita in Roma. Olé! (wrong language :blush:) Bravo!

Sunset in Rome is about 20:00hrs local and the flight should take about 3 hours. :rolleyes: So departure from LOWI ought to be 1600.

First stop Bolzano,(an Orbx freeware airport) tucked away in a tricky little valley. A modicum of planning (speaking for myself) is in order.

Palma next (likewise an Orbx freeware airport)

Pisa of leaning tower fame follows. Sadly, I couldn't locate any buckshee scenery for this and I for one won't be spending on it)

The same goes for LIQS Ampugnano and LIRV Viterbo, a military airfield where I'm sure we'll be given a warm welcome.

Finally to Rome the eternal city. :biggrin: Yay! Er, not quite. I've had to do a Ryanair on you. :angry: Boo!

Because of the exorbitant landing fees at Ciampino we have to finish the flight at LIRU Urbe and transfer by coach to Rome, a trip of about 20 kilometres(sandwiches provided.

Flight plan is HERE  PLN and PLG

Aircraft: Something reasonably speedy. I'll be in this:

Crikey. I'm back. I've totally forgotten how to multiplayer using the new system.  I have not got Orbx Innsbruck. 

I only just updated my P3D, then had to update my GTN, then, then, then....its never ending.

I don't know of any masochists in the 'painting' fraternity. :huh:

Oh and that was the most blatant example of thread hijacking I have ever seen!

better put a smiley in here in case you think I'm serious. :biggrin:
