MSFS - Screenshots

So much to learn.

The thing about military jets, and ‘military flying games’, if you like, is that very little about what you need to learn is real-life procedure, it’s just about learning what does what in the cockpit, and then you can go and shoot stuff…so you can “chuck’s-guide” your way through quite a lot and blast through the skies.

With the modern civilian tubeliners, it seems like quite a different learning exercise - operating the plane is a lot about the FMC, but to understand that, you need to understand quite a lot about IFR flight planning, chart reading, procedures etc. just to make the plane do what you want…so even if you’re not that concerned about doing it exactly right like in real life, there are a lot of areas one needs at least a rudimentary understanding of, just to get the “why’s” of the FMC.

It is good fun, but it is very different to DCS. :slightly_smiling_face:

What can I say…I am a modest man who has a good deal to be modest about :rofl:

Trying to get the finer points of the FMC without refreshing the basics would be to climb a tree a** first, as they say…so I find myself at the Cessna factory at Wichita where I tried to learn the basics previously, 6 years ago in XP11 :slight_smile:

still you can always fly it like big fast GA and never touch the FMS. at least thats what I did back lin XP11 with 737 :slight_smile:

Leaving Miami behind (this time crossing the U.S. North-Westbound starting in Miami with intended arrival… perhaps Alaska).

And some fun flight in Laos in Air America colours.

Overhead Ban Sam Tong, also known as Lime Site 20A. A short strip nested in a valley surrounded by hills.

Definitely a challenge. Fortunately there were some houses at the end of runway to prevent rwy excursion :grimacing:

I am a sucker for a Beech 18, which one is that? Great looking bird!

This is a Local Legend V which you can get for some 15 gold from the marketplace.

Make sure then to use an excellent freeware mod from Denarq. Makes a ton of difference :+1:

Nice! Is that in multiplayer?

No, the other C-46 was injected by Touching Cloud’s AirshowAssistant tool.

Pretty cool. One does not feel so lonely on these long legs :grinning:

That’s a nice touch! I should fly The Hump sometime.

Having loads of fun lately in MSFS

Over the Hump (again!) overhead Ledo and descending towards Dinjan. I just popped out from heavy clouds with some serious up/downdrafts and spectacular vistas of hilltops lurking from the clouds… but unfortunately I was hitting a wrong key combo to take screenshots so this is the first one after I realized my mistake.

Short finals to Dinjan. How short I don’t know as I was not visual with the runway. You can see that I was still flying towards the LMM and keeping the min altitude all the way to the LMM.


And one more from my NeoFly 4 career - this time over the castle of Bojnice. A wonderful place!
