Electra Service New Zealand Style With Bizarre Landing

Recommended Posts

Shalom and greetings all my pals,

Presenting exclusive Electra service New Zealand style from NZAA Auckland Airport located near Mangere 13 miles south of centre of Auckland to NZNS Nelson Airport 8 miles southwest of the city of Nelson

On climb to FL200 after take off making left turn to head to south with background view of waters of Tasman Sea


Still on climb and in middle of left turn with background view of waters of Manukau Harbour seen on upper left corner


Wing view showing combo of waters of Tasman Sea below wing and waters of Manukau Harbour above wing


Climbing climbing with background view of Waikato River below the plane


Passing Waikato River


Now cruising at FL200 along western coast of North Island of New Zealand approaching Raglan Bay seen ahead


Cruising at FL200


Making some direction adjustment


Leaving North Island to do crossing across waters of Cook Strait


View of South Island loomed ahead during crossing of Cook Strait


Approaching South Island and Abel Talsman National Park


Cockpit view showing Abel Talsman National Park on left and Kahurangi National Park on right with space between those 2 parks called Takaka


Official airport charts do not match terrain of FSX default South Island of New Zealand BUT thankful, FSX is pretty accurate in that New Zealand highway route number 60 which I could follow all the way to Nelson!!


Following the highway route number 60


Cockpit view of Kahurangi National Park while keeping eye on the highway route number 60 seen on left

Keeping eye on the highway route number 60 seen above that leads to Nelson

Nice flight. But you should really get OrbX NZ regions. NZ is such a beautiful country; default FSX doesn't do it justice imho.

HLJames and Fwerff,

Thanks for kind words.

Fwerff,  I know but I am afraid that Orbx ground textures would screw up FSX.
