  1. Not much time in the Turbo Arrow yet. A few test flights and we're off! Departing the close runway at Athen's LGAT: Out of Athens: The flight was going well and I had chosen 2 hours and 30 minutes worth of fuel. Only, that wasn't working out...I was starting to get concerned. 17.5 Miles to go and things are not looking good. This could be a very long swim. Come on...Just a little farther. O.K. After this I landed safely and went to do some work on fuel management. This is my thir
  2. That is a beautiful aircraft! I missed out on that one.
  3. I can see why. Very nice, Wayne!
  4. I've experienced the same issue. No way I'm going to miss this; I will be sending my registration in via the rally address above.
  5. Wow, you didn't have much leeway there did you? Always exciting landing a big airplane on a small runway: get it on the ground and warm up the brakes! Nice job, Chuck.
  6. I’m looking at my screenshots above on my iPad and they all look VERY dark. They look fine on my PC; I hope you can see them ok.
  7. Well, it turns out I was running a little late, so I needed something a little faster. O.K. A LOT faster: Ahhh, the SR-71. Yet another example of Kelly Johnson's genius. I found the lights fairly easily this time, despite having never flown this aircraft. Although, it take a bit of hunting and pecking to get the engines started. Hmm... I hope this runway is long enough. The team would be awfully upset if it were to run it off the end of the runway. Sheeeooooot, no problem! Climbing and accelera
  8. X-Plane 11 Default Scenery Hot Start TBM900 Before I set off, I headed over to the castle. I placed a stone, so as to add to the structure of the fortress; I believe the Papal decree still holds and guarantees me a place in heaven, as I would be considered someone who helped with construction, right? There it is! The TBM almost as amazing as Bodrum Castle! Well, O.K., maybe not. But still fun to fly. With the "sandwich bag" safely stowed in the forward stowage compartment, we leave the vomiting twin driver behind. Gorgeous da
  9. X-Plane 11.32 Default Scenery Default Aircraft: Stinson L5 Sentinel So, as I was waiting for John over in Maintenance, this mechanic walked over with an irritated look on his face and told me that the pilot that was supposed to ferry my plane over landed in Imsik, thinking that was where he was supposed to leave it; he must have been confused by my destination. The mech said I could borrow one of the field's trainer aircraft and to just leave it at Imsik. No charge. Nice huh? He was about to leave when he turned back with a frown and said, "You know what really burns my ass?
  10. Very nice, John. Love that full afterburner departure! You didn't think you would find me in that Vegan food truck there did you? I'm over here in maintenance...
  11. Oh, come on! Next you're going to tell me the world is round, right? Nice screenshots: what is that plane? It looks something like a citation, but those business jets all look so similar to me.
  12. 750 KNTS, 300 ft: YEAH!!! Cool PIREP. Agree with your assessment of x-plane; rock solid and beautiful right out of the box. My P3D has only been fired up a few times after completing last year’s MEBAR.
  13. I made it. I made it. Whew, just in time too! I've been learning to fly this thing in X-Plane and I'm coming to like it quite a bit. Although, the FMS is a little quirky; which is to say generic. Climbing out of Eppley Field Coming up on Lake Michigan. Just of the tip of my right wing is lake Geneva. I had a brush with greatness here when I got to play Dungeons and Dragons with Gary Gygax at one of the Lake Geneva Gaming Conventions that were restarted in the mid 2000's. GenCon is still a major event, but is currently south
  14. Oh, good lord! I'm embarrassed to say that I've only just figured out what "Feel the Power" means. And I'm an electrical engineer for crying out loud! Great set of pics there Brian! As I was looking at them I was thinking, "Hmm, there sure are a lot of hydro-electric sites here. Huh, what's with all the power stations?" DOH!
  15. All beautiful shots, but the one over Trondheim is gorgeous! I have a shot of overflying the same area (I'll bet we are flying within a mile of the same spot), just a slightly different angle. Yours is much better; I regretted turning on the "Frozen Water" option in the Orbx scenery as the transition from frozen rivers to dark blue ocean was pretty harsh.
