Thanks. This a game changer.

Start Google Earth on the iPad.
Find something interesting on the map. Pin it and put the coordinates into the sim.
Enjoy the incredible view with the best weather and light possible.

So many airframes to choose from down there :cool:... not that one can kick the tyres and light the fires though.. :blush:

Great overhead shot! Touch of the blurries in the second shot though :laugh: (Ahem photographic composition, I know!):cool:

Nice shots!  I tried taking off from KVCV but it looked empty, almost as if there aircraft were edited out of the aerial photo?  I’ll definitely check out Tucson.

That is exactly what they did!🤬

You can clearly see the outlines of the aircraft they snuffed out.  Very sad and most likely either the airlines or Victorville government threw a fit...or some enterprising dev is gonna reproduce it in it's glory?

I find it EXTREMELY ironic that the US Government and the Military had no issues with Davis Monthan ....

Even have altitude-rederings of the planes...the C5's sure stand out!

Hope we get the airliner boneyard to fly over some day.
