    • As long as it isn't scheduled for Feb 29... lol
    • By reading through the last few pages of this topic you will figure that no release dates are given. And that the release is not imminent.   Title of this forum:    
    • Here is my flight report for the flight VIDP to OPRN which I also concluded on 18-Nov-2016. VIDP BIPAN DCT BUTOP A589 ASARI L509 INDEK OPRN / FL 320 A319 German Air Force 15-01 VIDP – New Delhi, Indira Gandhi, India

      - islamabad2012fsx.zip, by juniormoult@hotmail.co.uk, thanks both of you for the nice sceneries!     Our route is pretty much straight forward.
      Weather report is kind of astonishing to me, the visibility at VIDP seems to be ok, while at OPRN it is pretty low.
      Our plane is still parked at stand E84 of an still empty airport.
      It looks like the firefighters are only on duty for our departure. Thanks guys!
      Climbing out of runway 29 and immediately the dense of haze is increasing.
      30 NM ahead of SADAR  waypoint all the sudden after lots of clouds we have relatively clear sky. But then I realize that also the wind speed indicator has fallen to 0.0kn After “working on the lost weather conditions checklist”  I could identify the root cause of this effect, FSX had lost synchronization to AS16.
      Crossing Jhelam River or Jhelum River, which is a river that flows in Indian and Pakistani Kashmir, and Punjab, Pakistan. It is the westernmost of the five rivers of Punjab, and passes through Jhelum District. It is a tributary of the Chenab River and has a total length of about 725 kilometres (450 mi).
      After almost an hour into the flight we arrive at Chaklala Intl at Islamabad. In the upper right corner we recognize the airport. We make a right turn for the downwind leg.
      We passed the airport on the outbound leg of a procedure turn to runway 30.
      Short ahead of the procedure turn we listen to a TACAS alarm and seconds after that we face a fighter aircraft in the upper right corner. TACAS advised to descend but we decided for a left turn because of our low flight level.
      Finally we are settled and cleared for landing on runway 30 …
      … when only seconds before touch down we realize a triple engine jet using runway 12 to reach its start position on runway 30. Because the jet almost had left the runway we decided to land anyway.
      I take it that way, better having traffic around you, than empty airports like at VIDP.
      When leaving the runway we can clap eyes on the one and only Antonow An-225, which primarily was built to transport piggyback the Soviet Space Shuttle called Buran.
      Finally we arrive at our assigned stand 12. As other fellow pilots already have mentioned there is quite a number of trees spread over the tarmac of this add-on freeware scenery.
       
      Wish you all always happy landings Gernot
