Mark: Now that you've already perfected the landing with this aircraft..."Tri-holer landing: No bounce"...you're now well-set for this long voyage...🙂...

Seriously, nice shots here...the banking LH MD-11 looks impressive...

And, BTW, I see that you've been using FSOpen Clouds quite a bit...your 2nd shot (dense) cloud-coverage appears quite good...Have heard of FSOpen, but do not know much about it (or have ever used it)...

Thank you!. FSOpen Clouds is kind of a budget weather engine in that it uses stock FSX with some tweaks (like a fog fix so it isn't all or nothing) and injects real world METARS into the sim. I say budget because whilst the add-on gives free UK coverage, it costs £5 per year subscription to access the rest of the world's METARS. Occasionally the clouds disappear totally, then come back again, usually when I'm at cruise altitude with the big iron, but then again I can see where my LOD distance ends anyhow... The clouds might disappear but the upper winds stay (I use FSUIPC for wind smoothing).

The author says it works well with REX textures, but to not use the REX weather at the same time. I don't know if there's any need for FSOpen Clouds with Active Sky etc.
