Telavi to Mestia

Recommended Posts

Hi,

some shots from a flight Telavi-Mestia in Georgia along the Caucasus. Unfortunately, no AI traffic today.

Taxiing at Telavi:

After take-off, one can see some old military installations from Soviet times in front of the Caucasus:

As well as Telavi city in the opposite direction:

After crossing Georgia from east to west, the Caucasus main ridge is near:

... and even more near:

Just a look to Ushguli village at the right bottom:

Svaneti range at the left side:

The main range at the right site:

Turning and diving into the valley where Mestia is situated

Mt. Ushba far above:

Diving deeper into the valley. By the way, I never saw a traffic light in Mestia (did some experimenting with autogen):

Sharp turn towards the airport:

Tower guided me to the gate just in front of the contemporary Terminal building:

I hope you had fun...

Thanks and regards,

Thanks Pugilist2, Gennadiy and Ed for your kind comments. Yes, the flight was a pleasure, as it is always in this magnificient landscape.

And of course many thanks to David for giving me permission to convert your excellent Mestia and Telavi airport sceneries to FS2004!

I always like these little stories. Motivated me to do the same flight yesterday with the twin otter.
