Leg 98 - Mallorca Palma (LEPA) - Gibraltar AB (LXGB)

Recommended Posts

Welcome one and all to my first ATWC leg! After allardjd (John)'s very sucessful run, we take up the challange once more. Departing from Palma, we will fly under IFR rules but only at 14000ft. Route is direct GPS in FSX.

Please don't come to me about AA settings!!!!!

So here we are, parked up at Palma in our steed, the default 737-800.

Of course, the co-pilot has a camera, but this is the only shot he will get

Touchdown! A round of applause from the passengers as I complete my first ATWC leg!

Everything hanging

Taxing at my own accord as Gibraltar doesn't have parking (so says FSX)

Just stopped

Then I wonder, wheres the baton??? Phew, it's behind me!

Cold and dark, the 737-800

Waiting for the stairs, before we realised we had to use own own stairs!

So here we are, at Gibraltar. We are now waiting for Panos95 to get here in who knows what!!!

This is my first leg so please bear with me

Hope you all enjoyed it

Very, very good post. Nice use of the ATC window to keep us in the picture. I really enjoyed your flight. Good work all around. :stars:

 

I note that the Gibraltar scenery shows "the rock" much better than FS9, as seen (or more correctly, not seen) in my Casablanca flight. Nice to see it's still there.

What can I say? Just the way we like it with great shots and commentary.

Well done on getting the baton in the shots too.

This has really helped us on our way, hope you enjoyed flying it too.

Cheers

Great for starters!! I particularly liked the commentary-well done!!

As for antialiasing, nothing to worry about-I've also made the best settings but still have antialising isues. NVIDIA is to blame,not you!

Nice one, Kieran - a really good first ATWC post! Just the right combination of commentary and screenshots - thanks for your efforts. Glad you got the baton to Gib - remember to take a rope ladder, next time, eh?

Cheers - Dai. :stars:

Super shots! :thum: It's nice to see FSX used once in a while, we don't see too much of it!

Sorry this reply is late. I am replying to all the fantastic legs completed while I have been absent!

Best Regards,

George : Tap
