Fantastic light at FL370 in the FF752 in my VA Cargo livery.  As much as I enjoy P3D it can't match XP's tonal subtleties.

Nothing like a crossing of the Alps in the flight levels.  I have crossed them by land many times and three times while flying, first in a DC8-63 from Munich to Milan in 1977 and in a 737-300 from Frankfurt to Bologna Italy and back in 1995.  On my Frankfurt to Bologna flight I remember looking way down at the Canton of Ticino, in Switzerland, which I traversed by train and bus several times since the 1970's.  Whether from the ground or high up the Alps are breathtaking, because of their vertical rise above the valley floors like in Ticino or along the Lake of the Four Forest Cantons (Vierwaldstettersee).  I was just in Switzerland, deep in the Luzern and Bernese Alps, last year on tour.  A long way from my home in Phoenix.

Thanks for sharing such a beautiful memory.

The pure beauty. Can you please specify which part of the alps you cross at the picture?

TBH Harald I can't.  My VA has a number of routes criss-crossing Europe and I don't recall which flight that was.  Sorry.

No problem, thanks though. I wish you many more lucky Alps crossings!
