Excellent shots of this formidable region from the vantage point of a Phantom...!

I do have Orbx's Valdez and had posted an entry for it, but I do think good Photoscenery (such as this) can outperform man-made scenery in the SIM (in terms of realism)....

I fully agree with you. I have it too and ORBX Valdez is fantastic. The only problem I have, as soon as you leave the ORBX area you are back to default scenery, which I don't like very much. This is much better in XP11, where you can create your own photoscenery and can literally fly from Valdez all the way up to Anchorage, if you want to, with the real world below you.

It seems that in times of global warming, one can preserve the realistic look of the Alaskan Glaciers via a flight simulator. It looks fantastic... and so real... fantastic real.

Yes. Harald, you're right about possibly preserving the look (as seen in these realistic images) this way...I was aware the Alaskan glaciers were receding/melting, but your comment prompted me to do a bit of look-up just now e.g.:

  1. Global warming is now causing Alaskan glaciers to melt at the fastest pace in 400 years.
  2. The Alaskan glaciers are losing 75 billion tons of ice annually....

This is alarming, indeed!
