    The landing was amazing. Light crosswind, first one wheel then the other...
    the accuracy of the simulation could be readily sensed.

    LOVE the shots my friend!! Really glad to have ya back . That Duke is such a beauty!! You really showed her off well.

    I would show you how good our Dutch friend is at tree trimming, but my computer with the pic on it needs a good handyman to fix it. Say, you know any local repair men?

    Hope you have a lovely Sunday my man.
    Take Care,
    Dave

    David,

    Welcome back, great start! I have the Duke myself too, but the Duchess from Just Flight is as just as amazing, I think she became my new favorite bird .

    Nice first post here in a long time - great environmental effects as well .
