Oh well, at least most of the shots are OK, and I could still land the jet! :blush:

Preparing to depart in the wee hours at Nairobi.

Positive Rate! (FSX NOTAM, I may pester Sky Sim with another email regarding the loss of some undercarriage door animations..)

Love this one of the rising sun.

Later in the flight - nice winglet shadow on the fuselage. :cool:

Feet wet over the Mediterranean.

I think the mountain ranges in the distance are in northern Greece and Albania.

Mount Etna, Sicily near the horizon, above the port wing.

Stansted EGSS just above the lower window frame.

Touchdown at EGCN with OOM. I tried to take a screenshot on the approach - I'd disconnected the AP as soon as it established on the localiser, to get a bit of stick time :laugh: - the sim went into windowed mode with a message behind it which said "unable to process screenshot" or something like that. No OOM dings, but airport not fully rendered as can be seen.

The sim was still running ok enough to let me vacate the runway, but no point in screenshotting the rest.

Oh well...

Thanks, Mark. Reason I asked is because I know that airport quite well in r/l---I fly into it every year as a passenger on either BA or Kenya Airways. Another reason I asked was because I use OrientalSim's HKJK, but that was for FSX and I have not seen a P3Dv4 as yet from any developer. Pity.

Not seen your Western Global there, but seen Atlas Air 747s there.

I don't know if this is still current but apparently WG were going to go Nairobi-Doncaster-Liege with perishable goods.

Thanks for that, Mark. Informative. As I generally only arrive there at 5am, however, on my return flight, I will keep an eye for that WGA, but then again, depends very much on the weekday.

Now I know how my Kenyan flowers reach Aldi!

Just reading up on a very informative WGA homepage. All kudos to you, Mark, for single-handedly bringing this freight haulage marque to attention.👍
