I brought up this topic a few days ago. I too saw one when flying Mike Stones Grumman Goose at night in FS2002 for the first time. I was in the cockpit, not outside view when I saw it, so it was really quick. I thought that I was seeing things.


Now I wonder if you turn the date back to winter of '85 if you can see the famous Halley's comet? (may be too good to wish for knowing MS) But it would have made a great easter egg. My FS system is 'down' right now or I'd try it myself. (corrupted startup files due to a bad uninstall of another program, not FS fault.



Tethered Aerostat Radar System = 24.696119°N 81.504511°W

The first aerostats were assigned to the United States Air Force in December 1980 at Cudjoe Key, Fla. During the 1980s, the U.S. Customs Service operated a network of aerostats to help counter illegal drug trafficking. Their first site was built at High Rock, Grand Bahamas Island, in 1984. The second site was built at Fort Huachuca, Ariz., in 1986

I know of a true easter egg, a deserted island with stuff and a poor dead guys skeleton laying there, along with other stuff. I cant remember where it is, try searching back in the forum.



On the beach in the Pacific..........A real Easter Egg!!=In Fs98, Not Fs2002!

Go to this location N20*25.54 E136*04.43

(using map view) and feel sorry for this poor sailor.


Arecibo radio telescope Puerto Rico=In Fs98, Not Fs2002!

At N18 21 99 and W66 48 07 you will find the huge Arecibo radio telescope.


Hot Air balloons=3 In Fs2002

Hot air balloons in Arizona! Go to phoenix skyharbour (KPHX) runway 26R, fly heading 330, 14.5 miles, alt 5000. fs2000 has 3 and in fs98 I found 5.



Shuttle at Edwards AFB=

There is a shuttle near the hangars of Edwards AFB. There is another one at the launch facility in Florida.


US customs balloon=

Would a balloon tethered on the end of a 13,550 cable in the Flordia Keys be considered an Easter Egg? Goto Summerland Key Cove (ID X20) runway 30. Take off and fly runway heading. Very shortly after take off you will see a cable extending from the ground up. On the end of that cable at an altitude of 13,550 feet up is a balloon. Or you can go to N024 41 29.4486 W081 30 51.4133 Alt 13,550 feet, hdg 02 mag. This will put the balloon directly in front of you. These balloons are known as aerostats, balloons with radar transmitters to assist US custom's efforts to stem illegal entry by air.

Custer State Park 43°44′45″N 103°25′5″W

Custer State Park is a South Dakota State Park and wildlife reserve in the Black Hills, United States. The park is South Dakota's largest and first state park, named after Lt. Colonel George Armstrong Custer. The area originally started out as sixteen sections, but was later changed into one block of land because of the challenges of the terrain.] The park began to grow rapidly in the 1920s and gained new land. During the 1930s the Civilian Conservation Corps built miles of roads, laid out parks and campgrounds, and built three dams that set up a future of water recreation at the park. = In Fs2002

Kilimanjaro 03°04′33″S 37°21′12″ is a large stratovolcano composed of three distinct volcanic cones: Kibo, the highest; Mawenzi at 5,149 metres (16,893 ft); and Shira, the lowest at 4,005 metres (13,140 ft).[Mawenzi and Shira are extinct, while Kibo is dormant and could erupt again.


Uhuru Peak is the highest summit on Kibo's crater rim. The Tanzania National Parks Authority, a Tanzanian government agency, and the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organizationlists the height of Uhuru Peak as 5,895 m (19,341 ft), based on a British survey in 1952.The height has since been measured as 5,892 metres (19,331 ft) in 1999, 5,891 metres (19,327 ft) in 2008, and 5,888 metres (19,318 ft) in 2014.The origin of the name Kilimanjaro is not known, but a number of theories exist. European explorers had adopted the name by 1860 and reported that Kilimanjaro was the mountain's Kiswahili name. The 1907 edition of The Nuttall Encyclopædia also records the name of the mountain as Kilima-Njaro


Johann Ludwig Krapf wrote in 1860 that Swahilis along the coast called the mountain Kilimanjaro. Although he did not offer any support, he claimed that Kilimanjaro meant either mountain of greatness or mountain of caravans. Under the latter meaning,kilima meant mountain and jaro meant caravans. = In Fs2002!


Vredefort crater 27°0′0″S 27°30′0″E is the largest verified impact crater on Earth. More than 300 kilometres (190 mi) across when it was formed, what remains of it is in the present-day Free State province of South Africa. It is named after the town of Vredefort, which is near its centre. Although the crater itself has long since been worn away, the remaining geological structures at its centre are known as the Vredefort Dome or Vredefort impact structure. The crater is estimated to be 2.023 billion years old (± 4 million years), with impact being in the Vredefort crater Paleoproterozoic Era. It is the second-oldest known crater on Earth.


Port of Oakland 37°47′43.92″N 122°17′4.57″W a major container ship facility located in Oakland, California, in the San Francisco Bay. It was the first major port on the Pacific Coast of the United States to build terminals for container ships. It is now the fifth busiest container port in the United States, behind Long Beach, Los Angeles, Newark, and Savannah.] Development of an intermodal container handling system in 2002 culminated over a decade of planning and construction to produce a high volume cargo facility that positions the Port of Oakland for further expansion of the West Coast freight market share. = In Fs2002!
