  1. Thanks for the scenery links Gunter. I have applied for simmershome club membership and will install when access is granted. I seemed to remember that I had a Samos scenery and sure enough I had previously purchased the 29Palms payware version. I will be using it. Link below for those who might be interested. https://29palms-store.de/home/22-lgsm-samos.html Jeff
  2. After the Sunday formation flight I did a tubeliner journey using the MaddogX to the new Orbx airports in Sweden. Screenshots below (hope you like them Ron)

    New England – Fall Colors

    Bonanza's at Bar Harbor Airport at the conclusion of the flight
  4. New England – Fall Colors Today’s flight will feature the mountains, lakes, the Atlantic coastline, and the fall colors of New England. Starting from Adirondack Regional (KSLK) at Saranac Lake New York the route crosses several mountain ranges in northern New England before finishing on the coast of Maine at Bar Harbor (KBHB). The first leg is a short 13nm hop to Lake Placid (KLKP) before climbing into the heart of the Adirondack mountains passing directly over Mt Marcy, then turning east and crossing Lake Champlain before landing at Middlebury State Airport (6B0). Departing Middlebury we climb over Green Mountains and land at Knapp State (KMPV) just south of Montpelier Vermont. The route continues east crossing the Connecticut River (the Vermont / New Hampshire border) and on to Mount Washington Regional (KHIE). It is a steep short climb to the top of Mt Washington (the highest peak in the Presidential Range of the White Mountains) and then a longish 72nm cruise to Waterville (KWVL) with views to the great northern woodlands and distant mountains off your left wing. The next leg takes us to the Atlantic coast of Maine at Belfast Municipal (KBST). On our final leg we will circumnavigate Mount Desert Island flying by Bar Harbor before finishing at Hancock County Bar Harbor (KBHB). Flight plans (both PLN and GFP formats) Aircraft The route is 295nm and a reasonably fast (~150knt) General Aviation aircraft is recommended. This is a good opportunity for Bonanza pilots to improve their proficiency. As always you are free to fly what you like. Particulars Date and time: Saturday 29nd September 2018, 1800 UTC.

    Stikine Backcountry (Redux)

    Tongass Fjords deserves all the praise it has received from the community. Holger Sandman was the principal designer and he created something very special. It fills gap between Orbx Southern Alaska and Orbx Pacific Fjords. It takes some doing getting it into P3D but it does work. The definitive how to guide is here:

    Stikine Backcountry (Redux)

    Stikine Backcountry NOTAM Real Time weather could present problems flying through the interior mountains. I recommend that you use a fair weather theme or for those with Active Sky: Set Historical Dynamic: June 16, 2018 1200UTC Departing Wrangell Set Sim Time to 16:30 local. This should get us into Petersburg before dark. Petersburg is well light so if we are a bit late it will not matter.

    Californias Gold Part 1 Sierra Nevada's

    Echo what Mike said. Great trip. Also really like the photo in the announcement post. Captures the feeling of a beautiful High Sierra day.
  8. It's recycling time again. This flight was first done in June 2015.

    Spitfire Sweep - SATURDAY 11th August

    Guess I should'a proposed an NGX formation flight😉
  10. Spitfire Sweep Take off from RAF Manston with a scramble to Angels 20 (climb to 20,000 in 9 minutes or less) without blowing up your engine, then a 90 mile dash across the sea to Holland landing at Midden-Zeeland (EHMZ). Departing to the northeast we conduct a low level high speed run over the Rhine–Meuse–Scheldt delta and Rottedam then a quick stop at Hilversum (EHHV) with it’s shortish 2000 foot grass runway. A quick departure will minimize overheating as we continue the low level 41nm run to Noordoostpolder (EH09) with a 3000 foot grass runway. The high speed run continues on to Eelde (EHGG) and hard runway (8190 ft). After a brief stop to run maintenance checks, top off fuel, fluids, and consumables, we change direction and head due west across the Waddenzee to Texel (EHTX) our last stop in Holland. Take off from Texel for our second scramble to Angels 20 (see if you can improve your time) for the final return leg across the North Sea to East Anglia where we will land at Norwich (EGSH) previously known as RAF Horsham St Faith. In 1940 two Spitfire Squadrons (19 & 66) were based in Horsham St Faith. Flight Plan is here A lively discussion on how to achieve maximum climb to 20,000 feet in the Spitfire occurred back in 2016 on the A2A forums. It’s worth reading. I found Killratio’s posts very helpful. Spitfire Scramble Challenge Discussion Link Aircraft While the Spitfire is the plane of choice, the default P3D P-38 will work if you don’t have the Spit but want to fly along in a warbird. If these options don’t appeal, choose something pretty fast (250-300 knts) but as always you are free to fly what you like.

    DC6 at Duxford

    Damn! I am envious. Looks like you got a nice close up look at her Ron. Looks like it might have been a warmish day too.
  13. Some Pic's of Nick and Steve's attempt at formation landing at Chitral (OPCH) Nick overtook Steve and landed first.

    RAF Centenary Flypast, London

    Outstanding! I heard a rumor that they were flying near Chelmsford but have not heard from any actual witnesses yet. 😊
