...And now the moment you've been waiting for...
I hope you enjoy this- there's a little twist to the story but I'll see if your able to figure it out by the end of the story.
Well, first let's take off from Osan AB...note the real thing right below the sim screenshot. Notice a little difference?
And from this point on, we'll head north towards Seoul, making a short descent onto Hwy 1, the Kyongbok expressway. This is located in the Suwon vicinity, slightly north, in a thick wooded area.
(note: had to increase fps due to cars driving down the road so fast. joke...)
Note the bad visibility in this area. They must be burning the rice fields again, possibly...it's getting hard to find Seoul, but I have a pretty good sense of direction as I've been "down this road before" (literally).
And now we enter Seoul, near Yoido plaza- sure is hazy in these parts! Maybe I can park this thing at Kimpo if they'll let me, and stop for a bite at Bennigan's in the Maebong district (been there done that- no t-shirt, sorry everybody)- maybe scope out the local discotecs near Myongdong. If that fails, I'll hang out with the Americans at Yongsan and do some serious shopping at Itaewon...heard mink blankets are going for a good bargain...
...okay time to head east towards Wonju on hwy 4. It's a good thing I have this thing to get me around. If I were driving down there it would take me a couple of hours just to get back to Osan on the 1.
Looks like that wind's picking up now- visibility improved quite a bit.
Okay let's increase altitude and head for the eastern mountains via Wonju. Once we're in Wonju, which is literally halfway across the peninsula, we'll now head in a south and east manner, towards a place called Taebaeksan (Mt. Taebaek). Being that this range is quite long, I did my best trying to navigate this place. If I am correct in my navigation, the small country road forks in Yongwol and Taebaek should be here. this is what I come up with, after heading right at the fork, respectively. If this isn't Taebaek, the real place can be found in the corresponding photo...
...okay, and now we'll head out of the mountain towards the coast, and now south to Taegu. Should be there in roughly 20 minutes or so at this speed...
...and now, we're approaching Taegu airport, let's see how this puppy lands...
...a little on the rough side, but it'll do. We'll have a couple of crew chiefs check things over to make sure we can continue on with the sunset cruise...
...this is my favorite (and yes, this is what Taegu really looks like).
Well, there you have it folks. I hope you've enjoyed this installment. Did you figure out the twist? Going back to part I, I said I would try to recreate the events as best as I could, with visibilty and seasons and that.
If you like this one a lot, stay tuned for a new northern Italian adventure installment.
