Just had to get back into the PC-12. She sure is a STOL performer!

Great area to visit, very nice post :cool:

Good morning Jan, and thanks. Maybe I'll check out Mount Rainier and Mount St.Helens off to the west.

Looks like a pretty steep descent there! Great flight Larry.

Thanks Leo. She drops like a lead feather; gigantic flaps!

Love the steep approach!

Great shots Larry. This bird still is a winner, also in FSX.
Happy Holidays! :)

Thanks Bert, and That Guy.

Very nice screenshots, Larry. But excuse me for asking a stupid question, Where is Yakima?
12-24-2007, 03:02 PM
Not a stupid question at all Tyler, and I probably should have noted that.
Yakima is in the state of Washington approximately south of the mid point between Seattle and Spokane. Travel west from Yakima and Mount Rainier will be a little north; carry on furthur west and Mount St.Helens will be to the south.
By the way, I've found that a good atlas is really helpful in planning trips and identifying gepgraphical points of interest.

Oh yeah I remember. I read about the ash from mount st helens blowing over into Yakima back in 1980

I appreciate your PC-12 shots. I've been mulling this one over for a while now and your shots are motivating me towards that purchase.
Does the V/C include any of the passenger cabin? Anything else besides the front end?

Great shots! thats a very nice livery, i have it for the AFG freeware PC-12 and love it :)

By the way...
I recall 18 May 1980 very well. I remember watching St Helens do its thing from my back yard. I was 80 miles north.
Quite an impressionable moment for a 10 year old kid at the time!

Thanks Carlos and "flick". The PC-12 has a full passenger area and I think there's a cargo bay in a couple of the configurations but haven't gotten to it yet.

How much trouble would it be for you to post a snap of the back end? At your convenience of course!
I just placed the order for the new Saitek yoke. I was going to splurge with the PC-12 as well. Your screenshots will only add petrol to the flames. You can imagine my torment of waiting for the post to make its rounds.
When it arrives, I have it all figured out... I'll put the kids to bed early, fix a stout espresso with a pinch of Baileys and drift off to that magnificent world of desktop aviation.

There are four configurations represented in the liveries; cargo, executive, spectre (police), and standard. I guess you'll figure which is which.
12-26-2007, 02:37 PM
And the rest;

Many thanks for the extra snaps.

You're welcome. Hope it's helpful.
