A vibrant and lovely picture of the Firth of Forth...!! Also, like this Saab 340 livery (including its beautiful tail design - the famous Tartan pattern...!)...

BTW, for the last couple of months or so, I've been myself snooping around, on-off, on Orbx's (FSX/SE) Scotland, and I'd inspected the Firth of Forth area quite extensively on my scenery...All of Scotland, anyway, is full of "Firths" and "Bridges", I'd learned....

Now, your 1 shot usually out-matches my 20...🙂...Still, with your (advance) permission, may I supplement, here, just three of my images, collected a short while ago...that I'd posted under the Title "Bridges of Scotland" or something similar...kindly take a look at it, if you have time (no need to comment or react), but you will probably catch one or two things there, I might have said incorrectly...(I do recall that you have your roots in Scotland...🙂...)

BTW, I see "two" bridges next, ahead, from the (red) "Cantilever Railway Bridge"...those two (white ones) are, I guess/read, the "Old" and "New" "Forth Road" Bridges...(please see the first of the two, in one of my shots below)...

A super sharp 185 - Carenado's?  As a child in Scotland, there was only the rail bridge - now 130 years since opening.  During the war, many trips back and forth as I was ferried to relatives in Fifeshire.  When I saw the first road bridge, years later, it just didn't look right - part of the Scotland I remembered had changed and now there's another.

Yes, you guessed right...it's by Carenado...(this plane is one of my favorites)...! The Alaskan "Call of the Wild" flying over this Scottish bridge seems out-of-place, but, it's just that a big "Jack London" fan here...🙂...

And, sure, I can understand, when such a historic landmark, to which one is used to, for so long, changes its vicinity, it does not look right...!

Your remarks made me curious, btw:

Yes, the Rail Bridge opened 130 years ago (1890).
The First Road Bridge was opened in 1964.
The New Road Bridge (the farther one on your picture), I learned, is called the "Queensferry Crossing", was opened just 3 years ago, in 2017.

I like bridges...🙂...

Please note that, on my screenshot, I think, I don't see the new "Queensferry Crossing"...maybe my scenery is a bit outdated...(but, I need to check further...)...

Thanks...!!
