Leipzig to Tbilisi with the Tu-134

Recommended Posts

Hi,

some pictures from a journey Leipzig EDDP to Tbilisi UGTB via Istanbul-Atatürk LTBA. I followed the route I flew four weeks ago in real world, with exception that I started at Berlin-Tegel then. But from the Polish/Czech border on the route should be quite the same.

Taxiing at Leipzig...

Still an Interflug plane!

That is where I live: A sharp turn over Dresden. In fact, my house is situated where the rear end of the plane points to.

Approaching to Istanbul-Atatürk. As you surely know, this airport will be closed soon, replaced by a new built airport north of Istanbul. However, in my simulator it will be live on.

Now let's go into the town and have a good glass of Georgian wine. As I was in Georgia only two weeks ago, my rememberings are still fresh!

Plane: Freeware by SCS, available at avsim.su

Sceneries: Leipzig by Aerosoft (payware); Istanbul-Atatürk by Gökhan Bayrakdar; Tbilisi by Alexander Svanidze

Have fun!

Regards, Harald

Marvelous series of shots...nice to match the route to one you actually flew! Also, your AI aircraft do add a very special touch!

Job well-done! Enjoy your wine now...🙂...

Thanks again P_7878!

Wine did taste well, it was a 2016 Kindzmarauli from Qvareli town in eastern Georgia. By the way, when drinking, I found out that my AI traffic is kind of outdated: Georgian National deceased, while there's a new airline Myway Airlines at Tbilisi. Some work to do...

Great post series as ever, Harald. Your AI never ceases to amaze.
My airports eventually succumbed to terminal go-around (wow that is some flightsim pun!) because I was far too lazy to unpick superseded airlines. 🙂

Wonderful set Harald! Great to see you back in the Tu-134. Love your AI gems.

I have made the AMTES hangar at EDDP for the Aerosoft scenery. (My first venture into GMAX modeling). It will feature in my next video LSZH/EDDP VDA1035.  😎

Hi WingZ and Ed, I'm glad you still like those arrangements.

Did research: neither a flightplan nor a livery available for Myway Airlines...!

Unfortunately my time for developing the simulator gets less and less (work, house, family etc.). So I continue to harvest the fruits I planted five years ago or even earlier. However, I think that then and when a new Georgian airport will appear.

Good luck Ed for your 3D modelling career. I much appreciate that you picked up an airport that is so near to my home! Looking forward for the video!

When you update your AI, don't delete the Interflug liveries, it adds a nice sentimental touch to AI. For the same reason I keep my Air Berlin planes 😉

This will never happen; these planes are part of my "historic planes standing around and flying a pattern once a week" strategy. Air Berlin continues to live in my simulator, too; some airports would be quite empty without. What I meant are some defunct and some new airlines in Turkey and Georgia.

And I still don't know what to do with Atatürk airport as soon as a version of the airport will be available.

P.S. Did you spot the plane of the early GDR's Lufthansa?

No, Harald, I didn't. But now that you told me, it's the Il-18 in your second shot 😊

Thanks Ed for posting. I'm in Leipzig next week; if I have time I'll look out for the Volga-Dnepr planes when passing by at the Autobahn!
