Leg nine of DH round the world trip (And it might be the best trip ever..)
What can I say, WOW
I just had my greatest flight ever. Makes all the hard work of these flights worth it. I had a hard time culling them down to 19 images.
Flight is MPTO to SKUI, and I went the overland method where I hugged the coastline then went into the valley that wonders down to SKUI. These screenshots as a note, I get this type of graphics at 20+ frames per second.
To top it off, I had to land in the dark, and aced it.
FYI, I have a AMD 64 dual Core 4400+, 4 gigs of ram, running vista and DirectX 10, Geforce 8500 GT. I thank the poster who told me to check my settings.
Now enough yacking, to the screenshots!
Taking off at MPTO
Surprisingly nasty thunderstorm, had a lot of turbulence
Getting up at my cruse altitude of 11,500
The clouds part and I am right on track.
Soon enough I am out of the storm, and into the best flying of my RTW tour
I now just follow this river up into Colombia! My passport is going to get a lot of stamps!
This flight is so good I decide to keep going to SKUI, I was orginally just going to SKLC, but decided to keep going since the weather was so fine.
Himm, I am going to be racing the sun to get to the airfield, you know what happened LAST time I tried to fly in the dark....
At 11,500, and looking good.
The sun is setting, can I get to SKUI in time?
To be continued...
The propeller is just a big fan in the front of the plane to keep the pilot cool. Want proof? Make it stop; then watch the pilot break out into a sweat.
