I've been busy today. The Seabee has been in the paint shop! I've got some of the basics for repainting down, such as changing an existing colour and placing stickers, but the more complex stuff eludes me such as designing a livery from scratch.. Hence my requests to AVSIM painters now and again So, here's G-PHIB. I realise the Shaggy & Scooby would love to take a flight, but at least the loud scheme will be noticed out on the water! Incidentally - I have absolutely no idea at all why that Airbus is taxiing out to 5L with the cargo doors still open!! "HEY, CHOCK! WHERE ARE YOU MATEY?" Enjoy!
Now that Just Flight's VFR Real 3D Scotland is out, I have all the mainland UK in photoreal. Note that Prestwick & Edinburgh are the cut-down free versions, but I do have several of their payware airports! I decided to take a quick trip before my evening meal (you can see 17:51 on the clock - actual UK time during my flight). Not exactly the best weather for VFR across Scotland, but it got slightly better at Prestwick. The 114 is a pretty little GA 4 seater, and the view in the late sunshine was worthy of the £200 hamburger! 😉 Enjoy.
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.
