    Plane spotting in KSAN

    Nice pics wondering the same!

    My best yet?

    Sacrilege! lol. It's the Realair Legacy for P3D v4. Unfortunately it's not for sale anymore as the company no longer exists.

    My best yet?

    I'm just really partial to this aircraft. It has everything I'd like in a plane, AoA indicator, fully IFR equipped, and it's FAAAST! It also luscious curves A speedy flight from Twenty Nine Palms to PSP!

    Yuck: Murky Weather Bremerton to Skagit

    Thanks everyone I haven't tried stalling yet though I did have a power setting issue on climb and almost stalled it. Whats the yawing back and forth effect called? Dutch roll?

    Yuck: Murky Weather Bremerton to Skagit

    Thanks Lennie. Again I apologize for the jpeg compression... it appears the forums are doing it automatically. On orbx site they aren't compressed. This site used to be great too but something changed.

    Turn limit.

    WOAH! That's a sublime shot! Love the contrast!

    S50 to KPAE

    Really neat. I like that mod of the G1000 for your display... well done!
  9. Lovely... I really like the first shot with the HUD
  10. First flight in my new Bonanza. I've got no GPS, I'm flying the needles and it's mostly IMC on a short hop from Bremerton Natl PWT to Skagit KBVS in the Pacific NW. My routing was a radar vector onto V165 to ISLND, then from there I shot the NDB Ry 11 at KBVS with a circle to land to Ry 4. The whole thing was tricky due to a monster ssw wind (it was lovely aloft - had a ground speed of 202!!)... I had a crosswind for the entirety of the non precision approach. routing by ryan b, on Flickr Untitled-1 by ryan b, on Flickr Untitled-2 by ryan b, on Flickr Even without GPS the aircraft is well-equipped for IFR with dual nav/comm, ADF and DME.
