  1. Nice set of screenshots Alan, and I hope Nancy made you a coffee on the flight ! I have to agree with you regarding the haze during the flights, which is the main reason I never posted screenshots of my flights this year, there just wasn't very much to see this time around, but hey that's what makes these rallies more interesting, 'cause ya never know what you're gonna get right ? Never the less I thoroughly enjoyed this years rally, as I always do anyway, I only overshot one runway on landing, honest !!!!!!!! Already looking forward to next years one as Joe has promised me it will be in scenic Alaska. Alright he hasn't really, but if I keep knocking hard enough you never know, all those lovely mountains and valleys to contend with, well maybe one of these fine days anyway. I'm off for a little tour of the Yellowstone area now. Until next year then.......................................................................
  2. Brilliant screenshots, and a truly lovely little aircraft. I have the RealAir Beech B60 Duke in my virtual hanger, it's another favourite of mine. Your scenery is to die for. I'm sooooooooooooooooooooooo jealous !
  3. Very impressive planning Andrew, and equally impressive screenshots if I may say so. Definitely food for thought Sir.
  4. Many thanks for your kind words Mike. This lovely little aircraft has always served me well in various air rallies that I've entered over the years and always gets me back in one piece. I'm still a rubbish pilot though !
  5. Here's my little charger for this years rally, fresh out of the paint shop. Just love this aircraft. Have a great rally everyone.
  6. Yep, Me and my companion Alf the Jack Russell got it wrong as well, and this was our 4th Mebar flying together. He kept barking like hell at me all during the first couple of flights, obviously trying to tell me that I should have been concentrating on my Ground Speed rather than my Indicated Air Speed. My excuse is that I was just an eager beaver to get started this year. Memo to myself -- -- really must pay more attention with my reading.
  7. Nicely done Brian. Now just wait until you see what the weather has in store for you in the latter legs matey!!! I hope your eyesight is top notch, I mean really really top notch!
  8. Well, many thanks to both of you guys then, you've given me something to really look forward to every Eastertime, and not just me alone judging by the ever-increasing number of virtual pilots that are taking part in this great annual event nowadays, and long may that trend continue.
  9. Great set of Screenshots, and enjoyed the Screenshot explanations as well. Made me feel like I was doing the flight with you..........nice one.
  10. Thank you for your kind comments, everyone. I agree with Neil, a lot of very hard work must have gone into setting up these rallies every year. It was only through an online friend of mine living in Florida that told me about the Mebar. To date, I believe this is the 4th one I've taken part in, and because I mainly fly jets throughout the year, this rally is something different for me to look forward to each year now, and it keeps my hand in with GA aircraft flying. I'm off to eat my Easter Egg now!!
  11. I didn't post any Screenshots of Leg 4 due to weather conditions......................enough said! Here are the Screenshots for my final flight in Norway 2018. Departing Flatval (ENFA) and climbing to my preferred cruise alt. Window view. Wonder if there's a football match going on below? Really hoping the visibility doesn't worsen en route? I still have ground visibility but have to keep paying attention to the weather conditions, especially the wind speeds. Looks like it's going to be runway 32 then. Descending for Rossvoll (ENRA) Oh no, am I going to get a visual for runway 32 or not? Once through the gloom there is runway 32 in all it's glory! About to vacate the runway and head for my chosen parking spot. Parked up and aircraft shut down one last time for this years Mebar in Norway 2018. That's all Folks. Many thanks to all the guys at Mutleys Hanger that put on this very special event every year. The very best of luck to all you pilots who are still flying the legs. I'm getting ready for the next one already!!!
  12. Another fine set Bob. That livery certainly stands out against all that snow!
  13. Many thank's for your kind comments Joe and Bob. Great to hear you liked the screenshots and livery. Leg Three has definitely been the most challenging so far, and I'm now looking forward to Legs Four and Five. Looking at the Weather Briefing for those legs I can see I'm in for a bit more of the wet stuff but slightly less windy conditions en route!
  14. My Screenshots for Norway leg 3. ( Click on pictures to enlarge ) Taxiing to runway 15 at Sorstokken (ENSO) for flight departure. At runway 15 for departure in the rain! Aircraft close up pic. At cruise altitude with plenty of clouds and gusting wind en route so far. Checking destination airport info for Bringeland (ENBL) Looking at the trip info and flight timer en route. Descending for the approach into Bringeland (ENBL) Final approach for runway 25. About to touch down in a bit of a crosswind -- aircraft slightly off centre, but hey ho........... Safely parked up at Bringeland (ENBL) -- now I'm off for a cheeky Whiskey and American on the rocks. Wonder what Leg 4 will have in store for me?
  15. Nice aircraft for the Mebar, and a good set of pics as well. Bacon Butties - now your talking Dean!
  16. Hi all, Just completed Flight Number Two of this years MEBAR in Norway. Took loads of screenshots en route and here is the pick of the bunch. Sooooooooooo cold in Norway right now! Hope you enjoy the pics guys.
  17. Great Aircraft. ( I have it myself ) Very impressive liveries! Love them all.
  18. Nice Screenshot Bob. Very impressive Livery indeed.
  19. Many thanks for your kind comments guys. Yes, Joe, I did see the mountain very well indeed and even took a Screenshot of it. In fact, I took many screenshots during that 1st flight, but couldn't show them all because I had a bit of a glitch with the aircraft which I couldn't rectify during the flight itself. Strangely, from the aircraft exterior viewpoint, the visible intake covers, streamers and wheel chocks which should only have been showing when the aircraft is parked were all visible the whole flight! This meant I had to be, shall we say a wee bit choosy about what screenshots I posted here. I believe I know what caused the glitch and will put that to the test on my very next flight. Good luck to everyone on the Tour.
  20. Today I decided to fly the very first leg of this year's Air Rally in Norway because spare time is going to be a bit tight for me this coming Easter. Here are a couple of Screenshots I took along the way. Looking forward to Leg 2 now.
  21. Many Thank's Brett. Hope you have fun yourself matey.
  22. Many thanks for all your kind comments guys. I'm no repainter by any stretch of the imagination because I only use FS Repaint. I just have a little dabble with it for a bit of fun. Iceman, that is a really cool paint job that you've done, I really like it. I've changed mine a little bit now. It'll do me for this rally.
  23. Just completed the Five flight plans needed for this year's Rally in Norway using good old Plan G as usual. Checked and Double checked for any mistakes but thankfully they all tally up nicely. I'm now ready for the great blue yonder. Let's have a good one guys. Happy Days!
  24. Aircraft livery sorted out. Add on Norway scenery sorted out. Just the flight planning with Plan G to complete when the files are ready for download, then I'm ready to go. Wayne J.
