As Always   - All participants are ONLY allowed 1 image if you post more than one - ONLY the first entry will be judged and the others deleted.

 

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".

 

This a multi-sim platform for your images as we also welcome X-Plane, DCS, Infinite Flight and even AeroFly images.

 

 

Good luck to all participants.

Can historic jets such as 707s or Comets or l-1101s or old prop irons such as DC-7, DC-6, DC-4 and Constellations be considered as heavy metal, please?  Do not want to break screenshot contest rules

Really?? That is definition of metal heavy????  Even though 707s and DC-8s easily qualify to meet this weight requirement, I find it bit odd to exclude heavy props such as Constellations because metal heavy is same as old iron.

Oh well......

All the Best to everyone and really happy to see loads of best screenies coming up on this thread.

FSX plus photoreal scenery 

 
The great advantage of FSX plus photoreal sceneries: the photoreal landscape textures are stored on the PC drive (HDD / SSD), so you can see all the details immediately, no matter how fast is your internet connection.


By the way: I don't have any O..x sceneries and I don't have stutterings. Because there is no O..x Central spying the PC drives and phoning home.

 

Good luck to everybody and always safe landings
Torsten

The classic heavy that cemented my FS journey and will always be in my heart. And she still flies today....touching down at Frankfurt Main where she is a regular.
