Here are some shots, using a new video card..GeForce EVGA 9800 GTX, or thats what the box says LOL.. What i know is that the sim looks and feels muchy better!...This is my usual test flight when adding a new aircraft or anything to the sim, SVCS Caracas to nearby Maiquetia SVMI...Hope you enjoy the flight amigos!
Doing the preflight at SVCS
Cleared to taxi runway 10
Here we go! This baby is hot!!
Close-up of my toy
As expected and reported...weather starts to deteriorate..no problem, we filed an IFR plan anyways and we are well-equipped..
.....a few more pics coming up in the reply...

Being vectored by Maiquetia approach control...we'll be doing the ILS approach to SVMI's runway 10
Beautiful, powerful, capable machine
A clear in the weather let me see the sea a little
I could use a copilot!
Passing by the "Tacoa" powerplant..barely visible..
Runway in sight! roughly 100 feet above minimums...The weather is real by ActiveSky btw
Its a bumpy ride into the runway..
Here we are...Wehh...short but intense flight LOL
Thanks for taking a look at my post, see you guys!

:cool::cool::eek::eek: Woowh, stunning shots mi amigo!! I like that paint on your toy, hehe. Not pink, but pretty close. Congrats on the graphics card, much better than mine. I think mine is a 6800GT or something, lol.
I would have been your co-pilot but I was busy maintaining your other birds. And Polars :D. Did you know an empty Polar bottle can fit PERFECTLY as Citation brakes?? YES?! :rolleyes::p
Hope you have a great evening my good friend!! Talk to you soon. Greets and hugs to you and your family!! :D

:rolleyes::p PAH!! I'll have you both know that I'm a world famous computer repair man. It's not my fault Carlos smells like BBQ. Okay, so I used some spare DAK parts to fit the graphics card. And okay, maybe I used those parts to cook my Salmon dinner. But, it's not my fault!! :D:D
