Thread: Northern Utah in 30m & FSLandClass

  1. #1

    Default Northern Utah in 30m & FSLandClass

    Well, seeing as how Bob & Jeff went and incited me to try out FSLandClass ;-), I thought I'd share a few photos of the results. (Already had the 30m mesh thanks to the good Mr. Orlando Sotomayor!)

    So, if you'll help me push Four One Tango out onto the apron here at quaint little Heber-Russ McDonald Field we'll get going ;-)

    Well, after a fun little crosswind takeoff, we'll swing around and head west over the Heber Valley. As we head out, you can get a good view of some of Heber's foothills over the left wing...

    From our chase plane, we'll take a look back towards Heber City. US40 can easily seen heading back to Park City in the distance...

    I've actually flown over these foothills a couple times in a glider, and I can tell you these are just about perfect looking...

    And finally, we're just about to head through Provo Canyon. Looking back, I don't think I have to explain why I love flying out of this airport...

    Over Provo now, we can look back and get an awesome look at the west face of Mt. Timpanogos. Gorgeous...

    Turning north, we quickly find ourselves at the south end of the Salt Lake Valley (and flying over ladamson's house ;-))

    A little further north, we get a spectacular view of the mountains east of Salt Lake City...

    The setting sun dances off the water of the Great Salt Lake as we near our top of descent at Antelope Island...

    Well, despite a 270 left turn to lose some altitude, we're still a little high on our approach, so we'll slip 'er to the left to drop a little altitude...

    After a quick touch-and-go to get our bearings, we're on downwind to land at Ogden-Hinckley...

    Ok, this one doesn't really show off much scenery, but I had to throw it in just for fun. Those buildings just off the left wingtip are my apartments! Man I sure love living here...

    Well, that's that! Hope you enjoyed the flight (and the spectacular scenery). If you're ever flying into KOGD, give me a call - we'll do lunch ;-)

    See ya in the pattern!

    Jeff,

    Glad you enjoyed 'em! Yeah, I just absolutely love flying around here - the scenery's awesome.

    Whereabouts do you fly up here? Heber to Ogden is a great flight, especially if you stay east of the Wasatch Mtns and use either Ogden Canyon or North Ogden Pass to come into the valley with (especially since you have to drop down below 5600' MSL so quick after exiting Ogden Canyon).

    Also, Ogden up to Bear Lake is another fun flight. Just depart Ogden northbound to BMC, then take Sardine Canyon up to Logan and head northeast over the lake.

    See ya in the pattern!

    Not bad, but for the Wasatch Front you'll definitely want to get Orlando's SLC 30m Mesh - it makes a world of difference. The only bad thing about it is it doesn't cover enough territory. ;-)

    Hopefully I'll be getting the entire US at 30m on CD one of these days, so that should really make the state look incredible.

    Like I say, the default scenery isn't too bad, but FSLandClass just makes it gorgeous.

    P.S. - welcome to Utah!

    See ya in the pattern!

    Those shots are incredible...I flew over SLC on the way to Phoenix the last time I simmed.

    You're right about Bear Lake too. In being there in real life, and seeing the one here- it's awesome. I felt like I was really there.

    I miss Utah a lot- probably one of the states in the US that I found had the most scenery changes for every 100 or so miles, and I've been to all corners of the state- from Park Valley/Sawtooth mountain areas in the northwest over to Woodruff, Bear Lake area in the East, down to St. George and the 4 corners in the south. Every area is filled with spectacular views- even the sky itself boasts an incredible view with it's vivid colors and cloud formations.

    I have real aerial photos of a flight from Denver, still not posted yet, but I should dig them up and post them. One of the shots is over provo canyon, taken the exact same way as yours, and it looks exactly like your photo.

    I wonder if anyone can design a small addon for the wasatch mountains- that would be the Francis Peak Radar towers...all it is is two small white domes with a small something or other in between them. I'd think that a lot of us Utah flyers would really love that.

    I know I would. For all the dinky VOR antennas MS found time to stick in this game, you'd think they wouldn't miss a big landmark (not to mention a Salt Lake Center radar tower) like Francis Peak.

    P.S. - thanks for the comments; glad you enjoyed 'em. I'd love to see that photo you talked about!

    See ya in the pattern!
