March's ScreenShot Contest - Winter Ops!!

Recommended Posts

Spring is almost here....well maybe.  This winter certainly has been one of interest, from bone-biting cold weather to endless amounts of snow being dumped on cities, some of which are not even accustomed to seeing snow or experiencing cold temperatures.  So this month I thought it fitting to have a "Winter Ops" theme.    Along with your image give a brief description of what is going on in the scene.

 

Below I have provided two examples, but with creativity, the options are endless as winter ops can include a multitude of things.  Depending on well this format is received this could be an occasional thing which may help to make the competitions more interesting.

 

Example 1 - single shot with an explanation/brief description

Early morning departure!  Moderate freezing rain overnight, snow and ice covered Q400, making sure that the deicing crew adhere to the Clean Aircraft Concept

Example 2 - multiple shots (3 MAX) with a short storyline
Short Final into KMSP, just after runways were reopened for snow removal......Braking action is being reported as Medium

Rolling out, the braking action seems closer to Medium to Poor

Users are allowed to change their posted image up until the time frame allowing you to do so expires.  If you fail to post an image based on the theme of the month, it is very likely that the image will not be considered during "judgment day".  As Always   - All participants are ONLY allowed 1 image.

 

GOOD LUCK TO ALL!!

Thanks, Ed,  I must say being able to finally fly this bird in P3Dv4.x has been a blessing in disguise.  Just waiting for us to make the Q300  version for P3Dv4.x and FS9.1 will be removed will be officially removed, although she is still a robust platform....long live FS9  :D

Moderator:   I cannot change my post so please delete my previous post above and here is my winter entry:

 

 

WTF! Your previous post was on the 10th March. You get one chance to post. If you then come up with a better one later you cannot then swap it.

 

Perhaps it's best to wait until the end of the month to post so to be sure you have your best entry. B)

Wrong 

 

Read the screenshot contest rules: Users are allowed to change their posted image up until the time frame allowing you to do so expires.

 

When the time frame expires, I assume it means March 31 deadline.

You assume incorrectly. The time frame is approx 1 hour after you post.

Hello Aharon,

This was a hearty discussion a few months back which led to the final decision of allowing users to change their images within the expiration time of the image being locked as a final entry (which is usually within about an hour of the original post).  Allowing users to change images up the deadline date would be a very unfair process as it would allow for one to change their image after other entries that could stand a better chance of winning are viewed by the user.   Apologies if I may have misled you.

 

I will remove the last post that was entered since it was several days after your original post.

 

Cheers

Kroswynd,

 

Not a problem.  No need to apologize.  I never knew there was one hour limit for changing screenshots. Thanks for clarification and explanation of "time frame".  When I read time frame expires, I thought it means last day of the month.  LOL

 

Regards,

 

Aharon

Hi everbody,

 

I make a trip along norway's coast line to bring a necessary X-ray apparatus to Hammerfest. My first flight brought me from Stavanger to Trondheim, it was a hard one, after takeoff the weather changed and I flew into a heavy snowstorm...

...I had to go around two times...

...but after a safe land I picked up the X-ray apparatus with a short delay. Now it's time to start the engines again, luckily the weather changed. ;)

Next stop is Bodo.

 

Good luck too all! :lol:

Elly,

 

I own Aerosoft ENVA version 2 but do not remember seeing that hanger in your third screenshot. What scenery is that?
