HMS Hood near the Out Skerries

Recommended Posts

I hope you’ll allow me to post here on occasion a few non-aircraft related screenshots. MSFS offers too good an opportunity for it. This one will be followed by two more (with different ships) and then it’s back to flying. Promised!

The ships are FSX models that I have ported over to MSFS. They are pilotable, but not impressed by any sort of weather you throw at them. This has the benefit of not getting seasick. Moving around the ship, I use the drone feature.

The Out Skerries are an archipelago of islets, some inhabited, in Shetland, Scotland, and are the easternmost group of Shetland's islands. Locally, they are usually called Da Skerries or just Skerries.

So, another string (or should that be anchor chain) to your bow then Bernd. Impressive!

Anchor chain sounds definitely more appropriate, Andy 😀
