These shots, are something I'd expect to see from Mutley!

Really Really Really Nice.

Looked like a nose dive approach.

I'd like to take the Baton to Japan-Osaka. Aircraft-Unsure as I havn't flown for a while, but it would be very nice :roll:

Very nice shots. Scenery looks good too.  Is that from the freeware site?

 

I really liked the shot with the approach lights; have always been partial to approach pics.

 

Wouldn't it be great if the red spot on the nose of the Air India livery was displayed above the windscreen as a caste mark?

I might need a bit more information about the bids guys as they are very similar! Possibly you could give aircraft details and any other info about the flight

Cheers, Phil

Phew that was a long post Phil, but it was a long flight :roll:

Some great shots (especially the baton in the cockpit, nice touch!) really enjoyed reading it and looking forward to reading it again.

Thanks for flying this leg, we are now taking bids for leg 16, please refer to the Challenge Control Centre to place your bid and Phil if you can give this a bit longer we like to wait 24 hrs so all members get a chance.

Please make the award in the control centre post.

Thanks

Fantastic stuff Phil, love the A310 for some reason I can't quite put my finger on! I think it's the "stubby" look, same reason I love the 735 :mrhappy:

nice shots there. I concour, the freeware scenery for VHHH is superb!

Not so sure about that A310 model though....but you managed to make it look pretty damn real.
