Exploring the unknown

Recommended Posts

The East African Rift Valley is a series of contiguous geographic trenches that runs from the Red Sea to Tanzania. A beautiful part of it is “Simien Mountains Nat. Park” (the red dot), located in Ethiopia with Mount Ras Dashan its highest elevation.

The nearest airport is Gonder (the red dot again), southwest of it. Making such a trip in default P3D or XP11 is somewhat boring, as the scenery does in no way reflect reality. Luckily, this is a bit different with Ortho4XP

Early in the morning in Gonder. A lonely tour bus can be spotted in the distance

Nice set of screenshots and I love the iivery.  What aircraft is that, and where can you get it?  I love Bush aircraft in Xplane11....

These are great impressions of an area rarely seen as screenshots. Btw: Did the little Dornier really master the altitude?

Nice screenshots. That's the beauty of ortho scenery. You can REALLY explore - seeing places and things you have never seen before.

Lovely stuff Bernd. You've got me thinking now - which would take longer I wonder, flying from Cairo to the Cape in the Ju-52 or making the ortho tiles for the corridor to fly over?

Many thanks, John. The aircraft is the Dornier Do 27 and freeware. Here is the link:

Thanks a lot, Harald. Yes, she did, I left early in the morning, when it was cooler 😉

I agree Martin, ortho scenery is a terrific gift for XP11

Many thanks, Andy. I think the flight will take longer 😊

Great pictures of this interesting region, Bernd, and, of course, excellent adaptation of Ortho scenery!

Also, love the Zebra livery of this Do27...a fitting and natural match here!
