  1. I forgot to take screenies of the landing - I was just enjoying the weather and the lighting
  2. A dawn arrival from Memphis. A bit of rain, but bright enough. I don't think that's an 8MAX, if it is then... nice ornament. Taxiing to our cargo terminal. Another successful delivery.
  3. ...heading west. Well, there's Sullivan Island State Marine Park under the port wing! I'm either in Canada or Alaska..didn't consult the FMC for the coordinates sorry, but I'd passed Juneau which was away to the south.
  4. Whilst clearing out my FSX flight plans folder, I became reunited with an old saved flight I hadn't yet completed - taking an Air Caraibes A330-200 to Reunion from Orly airport near Paris. Just one shot in the sunshine.
  5. I finally pulled the trigger on Rex 4 (Just Flight have it for £16.99) and carried out a flight in the SkyMaster to test it out. Seems I picked a nice day for GA in the UK - hardly any weather to speak of. Not so good for Rex as most of the METARS were CAVOK LOL, at least until I got close to Liverpool. I selected EGSS for Rex to generate a theme and off I went. AHA! A bit of low lying cloud, or fog.. NOW we have a cloud that shows me we are good to go - DX10 Fixer Cloud Shadows are working fine. ..and here we are, right downwind for RWY27 EGGP.
  6. Decided to take a trip from Blackpool EGNH down to London Stansted EGSS (I've got an MD11 en-route to Stansted 😉 ) in a Rockwell Commander 114. The latest VFR Real includes 3d autogen too and IMHO it works well for photoreal. I've only got the autogen set to normal in my sim rather than full on, so it looks a little sparse but that's my compromise.(I need to get an SSD )
  7. Not sure if a cargo MD-11 does Louisville to Tokyo Narita in one hop, but this is the sim, and the specs say she has the range...
  8. Inbound to Nairobi - Jomo Kenyatta Intl. Mountains looking a bit close before being given the ILS intercept.. Rubbish landing - too much float (yes an MD-11 can float - at least in the sim with a relatively light load lol) and off centreline... bah!
  9. According to the pilots eye video I've been watching, the payload was an impressive 88 tonnes (a tad over 194000 lbs) with just over 39 tonnes of fuel. We will be punching our way through the rough stuff! She took a while to get up and go.. ..coming through! Don't mind me!.. Mount Kilimanjaro off to port. Someone secure a Go Pro to one of the runway edge lights! Just before the reversers activated. All safely offloaded.
  10. Off to Nairobi. No landing pictures because due to some strange bug, all the ground service vehicles appeared beside the plane as I was taxiing in! Cleared for takeoff RWY25C Positive rate. Gear up! Should see the sunrise on the port side soon. My newly-installed dome light is doing a great job.. Daylight over Germany.
  11. We all know that the stock FSX ATC leaves a bit to be desired, but today left me more puzzled than ever. IFR flight from Quito to Bogota (another high-elevation airport!). So another light load - total guesswork as the clip for the Pilot's Eye TV Lufthansa Cargo MD-11 hop from SEQM to SKBO didn't detail the payload or fuel. Just 10 tonnes of cargo and 22 tonnes of fuel. ATC told me clear for ILS approach to 13L then Circle To Land 31L. I thought the weather was looking a bit dodgy, so why ask me to do that I wonder? Yes indeed! Total madness!! But hey, this is a sim and if ATC want me to play Captain Cowboy disregarding life, limb.... and boxes.. I'll try! Everything hanging out - loads of power and I know 31L will come into view in a second.. This is what the tower saw once I'd got the runway in sight: Ever the consummate professional....hooligan. Who's laughing now, you crazy Columbians?? (Good job I'd made the turn before that tall office block though!!) I left my FO to see to the unloading and loading whilst I stormed off to visit ATC whilst pondering if some controlled substances were not as controlled as they should be.. (clandestine cross-border ATF/DEA operation required) AHEM... any possibly stereotypical joking aside....(I believe that ANY air traffic controller is a highly trained professional person) does anyone know if the stock ATC has specific airports where a circle to land instruction is given? It's not as if the wind was a factor (about 4 knots). It happened on a flight I did to Chambery in France too. Also I know I should have just gone missed, but would I have been vectored back to the same runway despite the conditions?
  12. Leaving Manaus, bound for Quito (the new one at 7910 feet elevation!).
  13. Just water... bound for Sao Paulo (Viracopos airport) from Dakar. We will be flying down the east cost of the South American continent for part of the flight however..
  14. I believe the Campaign Against Aviation allows us to fly as low as we like over water as long as we're not within 500' of persons or structures? Blackpool Tower (not the airfield tower, THE Tower ) (Banter aside, the C.A.A. do have a nightmare of a job just trying to keep everyone safe IMHO on this tiny little, crowded, septic isle.)
  15. I thought this screenshot looked a bit dark & brooding, hence the title. In real life there are only a few airworthy examples of Curtiss Commandos. I need to fix the disappearing prop texture.
  16. Fedex A300 on a cargo run from KMEM, pre-dawn.
