Hi friends,

The next leg of that last series ... From Nice to Zurich.

 

 

Leg 121 completed (or should it be another number, I'm a bit lost!!): LFMN-LSZH

To Switzerland!

 

Flight route. Green, planned; Red, actual.

17070407082410968215131016.jpg

 

Saturday July 1st, 2 PM as usual, parked at gate K260 in a remote area of Nice airport. After a very nice week in Nice, enjoying sea and sun, we are ready for the new leg, this time to Switzerland.

17070407082810968215131017.jpg

 

Takingoff from runway 04R with a nice view on the tarmac with a lots of EasyJet birds out there.

17070407083410968215131018.jpg

 

Heading north over the city of Nice and a last view over the Baie des Anges.

17070407084110968215131019.jpg

 

Ten minutes later, we are at FL255 climbing to FL290 and heading northeast. just below is the Piemontese city of Mondovi.

17070407084710968215131020.jpg

 

At our cruise altitude, we approach Milan. We see the Tessin River coming from the Lake Maggiore in the distance. The two airports visible are, on left, the Italian Air Force Base of Cameri (LIMN) and, on right, Milan-Malpensa international airport (LIMC).

17070407085210968215131021.jpg

 

We have begun our descent to our destination, we are at FL280 descending to FL200 over the Lake of Lugano, the city and its airport where we were a few weeks ago.

17070407085710968215131022.jpg

 

At 15,000 feet over the Uri Alps in central Switzerland. In front of us the Gross Spannort peak (3,198 m) and on our right, the Valley of the Reuss River named here the Urserental.  It’s a bit cloudy out there and going at 270 knots in this weather with all these mountains around makes me feeling a bit unsafe …

17070407080010968215131011.jpg

 

Maintaining 13,000 feet, we fly directly over the Gitschen peak (2,313 _m) that overlooks the southeast tip of the Lucerne Lake. Just ahead of us, on the bank of the Lake is the Rütli a mountain meadow on Lake Lucerne. Here the oath of the Rütlischwur is said to have occurred, the foundation of the Old Swiss Confederacy on 1291.

17070407080510968215131012.jpg

 

A typical swiss panorama … Green and mountains and little villages here and there.

17070407081110968215131013.jpg

 

At 5,000 feet, taking the LOC for runway 34 at Zürich-Kloten airport, with a view of the Zürichsee and the city of Wädenswill on the shore right below.

17070407081610968215131014.jpg

 

Parked at gate Tango-75 in a remote southern area of the airport after a flight of almost 45 min from Nice. We have now a full week to spend at Zürich and enjoy this part of Switzerland.

17070407082110968215131015.jpg

- lemg-x-v5.zip by Joost Visser, thanks for the nice freeware sceneries.

The route for this leg was straight forward towards southwest, touching Ibiza then arriving at the Spanish Mediterranean Sea coast. About 50 NM ahead of Malaga we would pass over the Sierra Nevada.
17070501013520410615131402.jpg

The weather map shows fair skies aver the Mediterranean Sea followed by light clouds across the Iberian Peninsula with dense clouds to be expected at our destination airport.
17070501013720410615131403.jpg

Ready for push back at gate 31.
17070501013820410615131404.jpg

Climbing out of runway 06C.
17070501014020410615131405.jpg

While turning right to fly westwards we have a view at the bay of Palma de Mallorca.
17070501014020410615131406.jpg

About 20 minutes into the flight we recognize the airport of Ibiza on the left side.
17070501014220410615131407.jpg

20 more minutes more into the flight we reach the Spanish coast at Alicante-
17070501014320410615131408.jpg

After about one hour into the flight we cross the Sierra Nevada Mountains
17070501014420410615131409.jpg

Our landing at the destination airport was not as planned. :wacko:
We intended to land on runway 31. However ATC gave us vectors for runway 13 which we ignored and ATC did not allow us to request further descend (No selection item available). As result we ended up at the destination airport - but at FL230!!! :o
17070501014620410615131410.jpg

Thus we decided to turn eastward and descend on our own for an approach to runway 31 as planned by us.
17070501014720410615131411.jpg

Here we are back on final and on ILS approach to runway 31.
17070501015120410615131413.jpg

Parked at stand A6 next to a Lufthansa B737 which in reality are no longer on duty for Lufthansa.

Weather map shows lots of haze or clouds on our way.
17070501022620410615131416.jpg

Meanwhile another Lufthansa B737 was parking on our right side. The Irish people seem to like Malaga as well, there are two planes from Aer Lingus parking here at the same time.
17070501022720410615131417.jpg

Taxiing to runway 13. The airport is still under construction. The extension by a second runway including new terminal building not yet finished.

On our route we first fly southwest to touch the African Atlantic Ocean coast at Tanger. Morocco, then fly west aver the Atlantic Ocean, until we then in the last part turn north-northwest towards Faro.
17070501031420410615131424.jpg

The first two part we have to expect clouds which should disappear on the last third of the leg.
17070501031520410615131425.jpg

Push back from stand 3 about 70 minutes after landing at LXGB.
17070501031620410615131426.jpg

Within a little bit more than an hour the wind directions had changed, we started on runway 09. Climbing out of runway 09.
17070501031720410615131427.jpg

Heading southwest for the African coast. Underneath our plane we have a view on the rocks of Gibraltar.
17070501031820410615131428.jpg

When flying from Tanger towards west on the Atlantic Ocean, we have a nice view on the Gibraltar Narrows behind us.
17070501031920410615131429.jpg

After half the flight time we reach the Portuguese Southern Atlantic Coast. At Fl100 we are heading northwest on a STAR via ODEMI waypoint.

Tsk... at Malaga landing with southern configuration is prefered up to tailwinds of 10 knots. So ATC was right and you were wrong. ;)

Thanks Karsten,

good to know. :) Where would I find such helpful information like preferred runway at low wind speeds or no wind at all?

Didn't get a hint on this out of Jeppsen charts.:huh:

 

Good night,

I use the LIDO charts that Navigraph offers. Right on the first AOI chart one can usually find preferential runways if such rules are in place. Another way to check real life operation  is looking at Flightradar24 and watching what runway is in use at a given time.

Zurich is another good example where you can't simply land on any Runway you might prefer. Has to do with noise abatement I presume as the preferential Runways change with time of day and are different on weekends.

Final leg complete. Now that's a good place to spend 6 weeks until the voyage back to Paderborn. I took the direct flight from Zurich. Didn't want to switch to a smaller airframe on the very short hop to Friedrichshafen.

 

Had my hands full during the westerly LOC approach with controling the descent, so no time to look around and take pictures until I had completed the teardrop turn back to final.

2017-06-27 [126]: Nice [LFMN] to Zurich [LSZH], Switzerland

 

While preparing the cockpit, one of those British Airway A319's in the "Dove" livery taxied by (in the background is an [?A340?] from the State of Kuwait, here in Nice on "government business").2017-6-26_9-38-14-849.thumb.jpg.59fbb9b9fa3b54780ee58ed9dc43eefb.jpg

 

LFMN 04R.BASI6A.BASIP BERAB Z651 DESIP Z651 CANNE UZ651 KELIP.KEIL2G.GIP34.ILS34 LSZH

 

Nasty weather coming over the Alps, the seatbelt sign on for most of the trip due to the heavy turbulence.

That KEIL STAR is quite interesting, which I suppose is necessary because of all of the flights in the area.2017-6-26_10-40-35-257.thumb.jpg.7dba3aa3a6324f1c529198bbaf5e987a.jpg

2017-06-28 [127]: Zurich [LSZH] to Friedrichshaven [EDNY], Germany

Very short flight, did not even turn off the landing lights.2017-6-28_10-46-57-869.thumb.jpg.53ca2305956557d65beb3b86989cc805.jpg

2017-06-28 [128]: Friedrichshaven [EDNY] - Innsbruck [LOWI], Austria

 

It would not be believable, but the weather leaving Friedrichshaven was worse than that coming into Zurich -- absolutely monstrous turbulence.

 

EDNY 24.BEMK2W.BEMKI Y326 XEBIX.XEBI1B.LOCW26 LOWI

 

Fortunately, that worst part did not continue for the entire flight, but it was still cloudy.  And those mountain peaks, peeking through, were not looking friendly.2017-6-28_11-44-54-463.thumb.jpg.93a38634d2c0a3a0fc24a00d7f2f2243.jpg

 

Got a preview of the airport before we continued down through the muck and that "visual at the end" approach.  At least at Paro we could see what we were doing during the descent and approach.2017-6-28_11-50-9-287.thumb.jpg.748dfbba2156cd3420a55340844265e0.jpg

 

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

 

[Simmer's Note]  Since Nice each of the two pairs of airports for a flight have been too demanding of memory to allow a clean flight.  Several attempts just OOM'ed out, a couple of cases tried to OOM, but the timing was "just right" so I was left with "pale" textures and no more textures loaded.  Ugly.
Much as I have a distaste for the licensing question, I will probably switch to P3D in the next few months.  (Trying to minimize the loss of investment on various add-ons.)  The only question is whether there will be a "small" install on the present machine, or waiting on the switch until the new processors are released for a new machine.

 

Anyway, I hope to fit in a couple-three flights in this area before the final return.  But, the summer heat has finally arrived in full force.

Hi Dale,

As it seems this sort of switching is the only possibility for proceeding in a (half the way) known environment. Dove couldn't get themselves in gear and X-Plane 11 would need to drop all kind of investment done so far, in terms of money for add-ons and efforts. However, I'll grasp the nettle next year in Spring earliest.

Hi Axel,

in my mind you mention the two most substantial arguments when considering migration off from FSX to another flight simulation environment.

  1. Saving your investment done so far for FSX environment in terms of supported hardware, scenery or aircrafts and
  2. Similarity of FSX and the successive simulation in terms of handling.

The second argument was strengthening my decision not to follow-up on X-Plane, when I tested V10 thereof. To get acquainted with X-Plane might not be difficult for someone who is completely new in the business but awful for someone having long time experience with FSX and its keyboard commands.

Regarding P3D V4 I will make up my decision some time later, when most of the third party providers have migrated the majority of their products and I will be able to get a better overview on which of my products I will have to relinquish and which will still be available to me at which additional update cost.

I fear I will have to make the move sometimes, because on the long run I don't expect further support in terms of new products for FSX-environment. On the other hand this perspective generates another question in my mind: what am I really missing with my current FSX- environment that I would get only when migrating to P3D V4?

I'm glad there is no real pressure to answer this question and to make up an instantaneous decision.:)

- Valencia X , by Aerosoft, thanks for the nice sceneries.


This roughly 400 NM long flight took us almost direct east-northeast, in the first section following the southern Spanish Atlantic Ocean Coast.
17070501035220410615131434.jpg

Weather map showed clouds only at the northern coast of Africa.
17070501035420410615131435.jpg

Between the low coast carrier we had been ready for push back at Faro after a nice week of vacations.
17070501035520410615131436.jpg

Climbing out of runway 10.
17070501035620410615131437.jpg

Turning northeast heading for Valencia.
17070501035820410615131438.jpg

The flight was quite uneventful, the scenery of Spain not too exciting. After almost an hour into the flight we arrived at waypoint ASTRO1C initiating the ILS approach to runway 30.
17070501035920410615131439.jpg

In front of the coast east of Valencia we intercepted the ILS glidepath for runway 30.
17070501040120410615131440.jpg

The STARS generated by Aerosoft's Airbus FMS often are overshooting the final glide paths, that's why we have to correct and turn right again.
We first crossed the large harbor of Valencia, the biggest on the Mediterranean western coast, and then had a view on the futuristic City of Arts and Sciences with extraordinary modern buildings.

17070501040220410615131441.jpg

Since before as a ATR 72 didn’t leave the runway in time we had been advice to initiate a go-around.
17070501040420410615131442.jpg

On second attempt for final approach we had now a closer look at closer look at the futuristic City of Arts and Sciences with modern buildings such as l'Hemisfèric, a planetarium and a cinema looking like a giant eye or l'Oceanogràfic, the largest oceanographic aquarium in Europe.

We had been perfectly aligned for final approach at runway 30, vertically as well as laterally.

We parked at gate 1 and had one week of time to explore the third largest city in Spain after Madrid and Barcelona.

Regarding P3D V4 I will make up my decision some time later, when most of the third party providers have migrated the majority of their products and I will be able to get a better overview on which of my products I will have to relinquish and which will still be available to me at which additional update cost.

I fear I will have to make the move sometimes, because on the long run I don't expect further support in terms of new products for FSX-environment. On the other hand this perspective generates another question in my mind: what am I really missing with my current FSX- environment that I would get only when migrating to P3D V4?

 

FSDreamTeam

FlightBeam

29Palms

FlyTampa

 

made a joint statement saying that they would end FSX development (meaning "No new products").

http://www.airdailyx.net/fsnewsbreaker/2017/7/4/29palmsflightbeamflytampafsdt-we-say-goodbye-to-fsx

 

There is a discussion of this at alpha-india:

http://www.alpha-india.net/forums/index.php?topic=25634.0

 

I remember a post (a month or so back) in which Mathijs said he thought FSX would be finished in just months, and it looks like that is coming to pass.

 

My experience in the past six months is more and more OOMs and crashes.  These days I have less desire to fly because of these problems.  I could work on this and tweak the system to remove or eliminate most of these, but that can turn into "chasing the demon."  If I switched to P3D today, this machine could not support the same settings, but at least the OOMs would stop and I could more fully enjoy flying and not system management.

 

Of course, people have different experiences and priorities.  Everyone has a different "break even" point -- what they will give up, what they want to keep.  Even some people still have FS9, same situation I guess. ;)

Hi guyz ... the (almost) last legs !

 

 

Leg 122a completed: LSZH-LSZR

To Bodensee

 

Flight route. Green, planned; Red, actual.

 

17071307180510968215147808.jpg

 

Saturday July 8th, 2 PM, gate T75 at Zurich-Kloten airport. We’re ready for a series of two short hops to Innsbruck via St-Gallen. This will be very short flights for both legs…

17071307180710968215147809.jpg[/URL

 

 

Waiting at runway 34 holding point with a nice queue of liners waiting, rush hour at Kloten it seems … including an Air France flight to Paris-CDG just behind us.

 

17071307181110968215147810.jpg

 

 

Climbing out of runway 34 with a nice view on Zurich airports ramps.

 

17071307181510968215147811.jpg

 

 

Ten minutes later, we are heading northeast at 7,000 feet, climbing to 9,000 feet over the Zürcher Oberland. The Lake Constance can be yet seen at the background.

 

17071307182010968215147812.jpg

 

 

Just two minutes later, we are already in the approach circuit to runway 10 at Altenrhein airport with, on our right, the city of Uzwil.

 

17071307182510968215147813.jpg

 

 

Finale for runway 10 at LSZR, with on our left the city of Arbon, and, just ahead o the lake shore, the cities of Horn and Rorschach.

 

17071307183010968215147814.jpg

 

 

The only way to vacate the runway is to go to its 28 end and use the taxiway N that is a few hundred feet ahead on the left.

 

17071307183310968215147815.jpg

 

 

 

While taxiing to the gate on taxiway N at Altenrhein … This one is for gazoeller!

 

17071307183610968215147816.jpg

 

 

Parked at parking 2 at St Gallen-Altenrhein airport after a very short 17-min flight from Zurich. We just stop for a short time before leaving for Innsbruck. The weather is quite nice (29°C) and the café-restaurant “Le Cockpit” is just close to our plane. Let’s have a drink.

17071307190610968215147824.jpg

 

That's all folks! Have great flights.

And the following leg the same day ...

 

 

Leg 122b completed: LSZR-LOWI

To Innsbruck

 

Flight route. Green, planned; Red, actual.

17071307190410968215147823.jpg

 

Saturday July 8th, 3:30 PM, we are taxiing to the active runway at Altenrhein for what will be a short flight to Innsbruck.

17071307184410968215147818.jpg

 

Five minutes later, we are at 5,000 feet climbing to 7,000 feet over the Austrian city of Hard with a view southward over the Rhine valley where the Rhine River marks the border between Austria and Switzerland. In the distance, the Principality of Liechtenstein can be seen.

17071307184910968215147819.jpg

 

We fly over the Austrian city of Lochau, on the northeast shore of the Lake Constance.

17071307185410968215147820.jpg

 

Six minutes later, we have begun our descent. We are at 17,000 feet descending to 15,000 right over Klempten, the city of Bavraian Swabia. We are defueling tip tanks.

17071307185810968215147821.jpg

 

At 12,000 feet heading southeast, we approach the Forggensee artificial lake in South Bavaria, Germany. Austria is just 5 km on our right. The River Lech flows through this lake. Forggensee is known primarily as a tourist destination for aquatic sports and recreation. The lake provides ideal conditions for surfing, sailing, fishing and boating.

17071307190310968215147822.jpg

 

Maintaining 11,000 feet heading due south, we approach the Tyrolean part of the Inn Valley, just ahead in the distance. We overfly the Marienberg Pass that links Germany to the Inn Valley in Austria. On our left, the high peak of the Wamperter Schrofen (2,520 m) and further ahead the Marienberg (2,187 m). We also see the Drachensee, a high-altitude alpine lake.

17071307175110968215147804.jpg

 

Arriving over the Inn Valley, with the city of Telfs down below. Innsbruck is on our left at some 15 nautical miles.

17071307175410968215147805.jpg

 

Short finale for runway 08 at Innsbruck airport.

17071307180010968215147806.jpg

 

Parked at gate 9 at Innsbruck-Kranebitten airport after a very short 22-min flight from Altenrhein. Some nice birds around and a full summer to spend here in Tyrolean Alps. Great!

17071307180310968215147807.jpg

 

17071307190810968215147825.jpg

 

That'sall for today!  see you on next september.

Enjoy great hollidays.

Philippe

Our flight today goes straight northeast following the Spanish Mediterranean Sea coast until Barcelona and then crossing the Mediterranean Sea heading east-northeast for the coast of the southern French region Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur.
17070501043920410615131446.jpg

Around Barcelona and our destination airport we would expect cloudy conditions while the remaining flight would have clear skies.
17070501044020410615131447.jpg

Parking at gate 3 late in the afternoon.
17070501044220410615131448.jpg

Climbing out of runway 12.
17070501044420410615131449.jpg

Another view at the futuristic City of Arts and Sciences with modern buildings such as l'Hemisfèric, a planetarium and a cinema looking like a giant eye or l'Oceanogràfic, the largest oceanographic aquarium in Europe which we had a chance to visit during the last week.
17070501044620410615131450.jpg

The airport of Barcelona from FL250 underneath light clouds as predicted in the weather report.
17070501044720410615131451.jpg

Here we are already on our descent at FL140 south of Fréjus, one of the famous vacation areas at the French Riviera.
17070501044820410615131452.jpg

While we are heading north towards VOR CGS on the “Riviera” circle-to-land approach, on the left side we have a view at the glamorous cities of Mandelieu-la-Napoule and Cannes with Île_Sainte-Marguerite off the coast.
17070501044920410615131453.jpg

I love this “Riviera” circle-to-land approach avoiding overflying the peninsular of Juan-les.Pins and Antibes, following the eastern coast of Antibes north towards VOR CGS thus reducing noise to these residential areas in particular during summer seasons. I could watch the aircrafts coming in on this approach, when I was on vacation with my family in the department Alpes-Maritimes some years ago.
17070501045020410615131455.jpg

Short ahead of VOR CGS we turn right by an angle of about 45° heading for runway 04R.
17070501045120410615131456.jpg

On final approach to runway 04R.
17070501045320410615131457.jpg

Parking at stand 45 in front of an CRJ7 from Air France.

Wish you all always happy landings
