Georgia to Siberia = Autumn to Winter

Recommended Posts

Hi,

these are impressions of a journey from Tbilisi (Georgia) to Abakan (Russia, Siberia) in several legs via Termez (Usbekistan) and Kashgar (Uighur, China) with the venerable Tu-134.

Preparing the plane in Tbilisi (wonder for whom the red carpet is?)

En route again, after lots of clouds the sight got free not earlier than near the destination, over the Sayano-Shushenskoye reservoir

Antarctica? There should be spring...

I'm interested in your Video from this flight, as always; how did you manage the problem with incorrect elevations/sliding elevation layers in these geographic heights?

Here is my video flight Harald. Troll Airfield to Cape Town. It was interesting that it was still fairly light at midnight at Troll.I had to make Troll Airfield myself but I had no problems like you suggested. The only problem I had was some terrible frame rates on short finals into FACT.

Great gravitas you lend to the big Ilyushin, Ed. I'd have thought FS9 ran out of headroom (bottomroom?) that far south!

And as ever, Harald, great to see you going where No-one Else Dares with your Crusty (this is a pun, look it up) Soviet-era aircraft!

Thanks WingZ! As always, my aim is to fly where no NATO reporting plane could follow me to report anything (I thought of Chita, but have been there already; so what about Ulan-Ude, Tynda or Magdagachi...).
