  1. Background night view of entire city of Kansas City where you can see Kansas river below the engine and highway route number 32 on left side of the river
  2. Shalom and greetings all my pals, Presenting exciting regular scheduled Reeve airline service from PADL Dillingham Airport located two nautical miles west of the central business district of Dillingham in Alaska to PANC Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport located 5 miles southwest of downtown Anchorage. Very excited passengers boarding Reeve Airline DC-4 featuring well polished/buffed masterpiece livery work painted and polished exclusively by repainter named Hartmut Hekmann who is the official repainter for Virtual Aircraft Restoration Facebook group owned and operated by Hartmut Hekmann and Tobias Krause. Time for preflight inspection!! Check out super shiny and well polished engines!! Checking right wing to be sure there is no ice or snow build up CHECK OUT reflection of clouds on metallic shiny wing! Checking left wing for same reason WHOA I can see cloud reflection on the wing! Checking right engines Checking left engines Dont you love shine? Checking wheels you will need lobster bib to catch your drooling from seeing shine on engines! Checking wheels Checking to be sure flaps are set properly Checking propeller blades to be sure there are no ice WHOA WHOA look at cloud reflection on propeller blades Checking right propeller blades for same reason WHOA WHOA I can see reflection of mountains on engine cover Checking front wheel Checking tail Cannot help admiring metallic shine Got to activate all de-ice buttons!! I do NOT know what the pump button for alcohol is for!! Starting left engines resulting into mind blowing exciting and massive engine start smoke Starting right engines producing massive engine start smoke that is blown forward by powerful winter winds Engines are ready for action!!! But wait I need to spool up engines for few seconds to be sure they are ready for action in bitter freezing winter weather Starting to taxi to short of runway 1 to start exciting flight! Making sure the route waypoints are ready to avoid high mountains due to the fact there is no weather radar and no terrain warning computer meaning I must avoid mountains covered by clouds. Here are waypoints: KOWOK PIPPR NUTUW WALUS AMOTT WEWWO ICICL BOB that will enable my plane to avoid running into mountains as seen on this map showing my specific flight path Entering into runway 1 for more taxi and backtrack After backtracking now starting exciting take off run producing thrilling combo of massive snow splattering and engine smoke Airborne on climb to 5,000 ft At 3,000 ft still climbing to 5,000 ft Now starting to cruise at 5,000 ft Passing Wood River that is rich in salmon fishes Passing Iliamna Lake that is the largest lake in Alaska and third largest lake in America There is offer of 100,000 buck reward by local Alaska newspaper for capture of Pacific Sleeper shark secretly lurking in the waters of that lake Cruising across the same lake where you can see that due to so extremely sub zero freezing winter, the engines are producing condensation contrails Checking all gauges to be sure everything sounds very kosher Entering Cook Inlet to continue cruising where you can see that the plane is on safe side away from 10,000 ft high Chigmit mountain range that the plane is supposed to avoid Still cruising above waters of Cook Inlet with background view of same high mountains See how safe side the plane is cruising at 5,000 ft away from mountains Whoa whoa whoa winter is soooo freezing that the engines are producing condensation contrails Sunset!! Checking gauges again to be sure that everything is working well in freezing weather On final runway approach to runway 06R (it is 06R in era 1960s/1970s) where you can see exciting engine smokes due to constant engine power adjustments to make sure the runway approach is smooth Amazing cockpit view of night city lights of Anchorage look at ice on left side!! Seconds before touchdown Okay few more seconds TOUCHDOWN Snow splattering while the plane is braking down on icy runway More snow splatter (is it fun??) Exiting from runway toward gate with background view of Million Air building Taxiing to gate with background view of Alaska Airline maintenance hangar Got to look for official Reeve airline gate which is gate number A11 (oh yes I revved up the engines on purpose to produce massive engine smokes to excite airport spotting photographers) Arrived at gate A11 while the de-icing truck is rushing to deice wings of my plane to get ready for another flight Thank you for viewing!! Stay tuned for next exciting flight. Regards, Aharon
  3. Spinning fan in the cockpit crackles me up (do not know why my font changed) Amazing cockpit panel! Regards, Aharon
  4. Great shots Is it Frankfurt airport? Regards Aharon
  5. Here is throwback to FSX years. Presenting my FSX screenshot that modern MS2020, modern XP-11, and modern P3D will never never have in their flight sim platforms which is of course FSX naturally generated and FSX naturally default flooding that hit a Caribbean airport (MWCR airport) THIS IS FOR MONTHlY JUNE SCREENSHOT CONTEST Notice how flooding reaches almost top of the fence. The screenshots were taken in year 2009 THIS IS NOT NOT for MONTHlY JUNE SCREENSHOT CONTEST. It is for all of you to see what the airport actually looks like after the flood receded Regards, Aharon
  6. Do not want to compete against marvelous screenshot by @TorstenFS He made achievement becoming first flight simmer in history of flight simming to have reflection of himself on cockpit windowshield BUT HEY you are forcing me to do so. So here is...... see the next post
  7. @TorstenFS Ahhhh thanks for explanation. I am utterly amazed to learn it is possible to combine webcam results with FSX screenshot therefore effectively creating reflection of your face on FSX cockpit windowshield. That is cleverest screenshot technique!! Regards, Aharon
  8. WHOA WHOA WHOA the fictional Dan Air livery on CRJ jet looks HOT HOT HOT and amazing Also looks like Air Canada too if the repainter changes the name from Dan Air to Air Canada Regards, Aharon
  9. So how did you manage without Photoshop to get reflection of your face on cockpit windshield in FSX??? You must be first person in history of flight simming to get reflection of his or her face on cockpit windshield in FSX. Regards, Aharon
  10. Great video!! Does MS2020 provide 4 PAPI lights per runway? Regards, Aharon
  11. You said it is old FSX. What ground textures did you use for last screenshot please? Regards, Aharon P.S. I do not know why my words are in weird different fonts???
  12. Well I was asking about how did MS2020 do the job with its default Washington DC city landscape?? FSX did pretty good job with default Washington DC city landscape. I am not referring to any payware add on for the Capitol city. Regards, Aharon
