Hi all,

I posted a flight plan here of the real world Victor 1 flight along the Sydney coastline at 500'. Here's some screenies from when I eventually got to fly it this afternoon on VATSIM.


Just off Bondi Beach and looking towards Sydney city

Starting the run in for Harbour Scenic One
Posted Image


Inbound over the Spit Bridge
Posted Image


Left turn over the harbour. I've done this during my PPL (abandoned in 1989) and was so busy concentrating on getting the turn right I probably only saw about 2 seconds of the view Posted Image
Posted Image

After two orbits, tracking out to North Head
Posted Image

The end of the coastal part. About to turn inland to start heading back to Bankstown
Posted Image



Thanks for looking! Posted Image

Thanks Thomas. It's standard water reflections in XP. I have modified sky colours though, still a bit unsure if I like them.

Thanks again for a nice flight Stevo, you keep postin' em, I'll keep flying them. It's nice to have a guy on the ground in Australia who knows about these scenic flights, I feel like all that Orbx scenery I got is just going to waste

Off we go
Posted Image
Orbx really knows how to do a coastline
Posted Image
I deviated a little to check out the downtown
Posted Image
I increased my active sky settings to see if my system could handle it, we did okay
Posted Image
Whoa!
Posted Image
Double Whoa!
Posted Image
Love this plane, you can make insanely steep approaches and the speed is totally under control
Posted Image
on the ground no problems

Cool shots mate. Thanks for posting. Although I think ATC might have had something to say to you! Posted Image

I'll try and post another one this weekend.
