Real airplanes have propellors, even if it is a jet engine doing the prop twisting.  Nice

Thanks gents.  I really dislike the watermark.  But it's free.  Flickr decided to limit me at 1000 photos so I'm not sure they are a viable solution anymore either!

What a great airplane.  Every time I go to Oshkosh I spend quite a bit of time checking them out.  I'm sure its a sweet ride.  I really enjoy "steveo1kinevo's"  YouTube videos flying that bird.

Wow... I've tried this before and it didn't work.  Will have to try again since I am an avid OneDrive user. Appreciate the tip, Jim!

Edit:  Just tested and it works... very happy camper here!  Thanks again, Jim.

Germany is such a good place to enjoy in P3D and Xplane, especially the northern front of the Alps from just east of Salzburg into Bavaria, then on towards Liechtenstein, Walensee, Glarus and towards Luzern and Zurich, then all the way on towards the northern front of the Bernese Oberland down to Geneva with Mt. Blanc peaking up over Lake Geneva as one gets near France, the Jura and CERN.  I have been to all these places, most recently in 2017 as I skirted the southern Alps in France and Austria via Italy and Klagenfurt and Vienna, then I went past the Northern Alps via Salzburg, Munich and the Bernese Oberland in Lauterbrunnen Valley near Interlaken, the Jungfrau and the Eiger.  I wanted to go up the Jungfrau but it was getting too late, I would have had to wait three hours and had only a few minutes on the summit. 

So like 2017 and 1984 I had to give the Jungfrau a pass.  But I have been up Pilatus, Titlis, the peaks above Jackson Hole Wyoming, the peaks on the other side of Zermatt overlooking the Matterhorn, the peaks over St. Moritz, and Sandia peak over Albuquerque.  And atop Crater Lake and I nearly summited Mt. Lassen until we ran out of time and the ground got too hot.  I have driven my car over 12000 feet in Eastern Nevada in Great Basin National Park, and driven nearly to the peak of Mt. Hood and Mt. Shasta, Mt. Shasta with my father.  But his car got a vapor lock and we had to go back down as his engine was attempting to stall and we would have been stranded at the foot of Shasta's Glaciers.  When I worked for a Best Western client in Shasta town they told me local pranksters would hike to the summit, and light fires to make townsfolk and tourists think the mountain will go boom. 

It is still, like Mt. Rainier, Mt. Adams and Mt. Hood a sleeping giant.  The morning before Mt. St. Helens blew I came down and told my parents I had a dream it exploded.  It blew a few hours later to my astonishment and my parent's astonishment, but my dream was not prophetic, just common sense with the facts the USGS was pouring out.  I minored in Earth Science in College and knew Fukushima, as is the Nuke Plant south of the LA Metroplex, were/are on shaky ground.  My father inspected the Nuke plants in the West Coast and warned us where not to live, same for back east, enough of our warnings which are dire...

Very nice shots!

Is that the Hot Start TBM 900 or is there another TBM flying around in X-Plane?
