  1. I don't have a clue about the airport, but I see runway numbers in white on the grass. Do they really do that, or is it a FS scenery thing? Have never seen it on this side of the pond. John
  2. Thanks, gents. I think I understand and will give it a try later in the Real World Aviation forum. I went non-virtual airport bumming today with a non-virtual camera and have photos of actor John Travolta's Qantas 707 (N707JT) on the ramp at the local airport, as well as a derelict MIG 17 and some wrecks lying around the local tin shop. Have a honey-do list to take care of first, however. Will post later today if I can negotiate the URL codes and such. John
  3. Does anyone know if aircraft from the Microsoft Combat Flight Simulator can be successfully loaded into and flown in FS9? John
  4. Very nice photos, particularly after seeing my first effort a few minutes ago. You guys make it look easy. John
  5. That was my first posted image. Why am I getting the "Click here to enlarge" business? John
  6. Just got JF Military Plus Pak 1 and couldn't resist seeing if I could get the Follow Me truck into a C-130. Results are predictable, I guess. John
  7. Joe, Great shots, great story. I see Orions frequently, as the USN's East Coast home for them is up the road about 100 miles in Jacksonville. They land right over my brother's house there. A stately bird indeed. Isn't two Mark 46s for a fishing vessel/freighter laying it on a little heavy? Remind me not to get on your bad side. John
  8. I don't pause there. It's just an extra page load and click. John
  9. Dave and Joe, Thanks for the responses. If I'm getting this right, you can't just designate a destination for the bitmaps to be saved, except by having FSScreen.EXE in the desired location. The statement in the Readme.TXT led me to believe that you could somehow point to a destination. I was reading more into it than was intended, I guess. Thanks again for the help. John
  10. Have you considered a route through eastern Europe and Russia, mabye dipping down into the Middle East and China just for interest, then across the Bering Straight into Alaska, across Canada or the northern US to, maybe Halifax, then across the pond? It's a viable alternative to the more southerly routes, but might not be as picturesque or interesting. I suspect eastern Russia is long on trees and terrain and short on most everything else. It does pretty much avoid long overwater legs, at least until reaching Halifax or Gander.
  11. OK, gents, I've found and downloaded FSScreen 1.1 and it's a very nice piece of work. It's easy, works well, and as advertised, doesn't "hit" FS at all, performance wise. Having said that, there's a line in the readme file that says... "The file is saved in the program directory of FSScreen, but you can set another directory as working directory for FSSCREEN.EXE, then your screenshots will be in that directory." I'd like to do that, but can't figure out how. Someone a lot smarter than me once said, "Every solution creates a new problem." Thus it is with this
  12. Very nice! You set a high standard for the rest of us to live up to.
  13. OK, I'd be willing to fly a US leg. I propose a leg ending at Meigs field in Chicago. The actual airport no longer exists, as the mayor, in a political play in the middle of the night several years ago had the field obstructed and essentially confiscated the airfield to turn into a park. It took a matter of several weeks for the trapped aircraft to get out after negotiating permission from the FAA to fly off the taxiways. So, the actual airport is no more, but still exists in FS9. It's a great setting on a piece of land that juts into Lake Michigan. Some of you may recall that earlie
  14. Is icing modeled in FS9 or FSX? Some of the aircraft have no OAT gauge, so it's difficult to know When you're vulnerable.
  15. At the very high risk of betraying my ignorance, how do you get multiple screenshots? The limit of my understanding is, push the PRTSCR key, then to to the graphics program and paste it from the clipboard, edit, save, etc. I'm seeing shot after shot, obviously captured in a short time on the same flight. How about a clue how you accomplish that?
