The Great Aviate American Odyssey...... ultrawide


daspinall

Recommended Posts

I've embarked on an odyssey to fly from south to north across the American continent... Starting from the most southern airport, SAWL  Tolhuin Lago Fagnano Airport in Argentina... 
 I also just happen to have South American Mesh installed, which should make for some good captures..... The TBM903 is also well suited for this trip thanks to its versatility allowing you to soak up the scenery as well as clearing any mountain peaks in your path..

 

THIS MAKE TAKE A FEW MONTHS.... no rush to be anywhere, they are the best trips......

Thanks Nels..... I've just crossed over into Chile..... Making my way to Santiago, fuel and rest stop.....  So far the South American mesh does not disappoint.... I'm doing this in multiplay all the way so if you want to give us a flyby look out for FireballXL5#919

2nd Leg RGR Rio Chico Argentina to Santiago  Arturo Benitez International Chile... 

An uneventful leg, wether clear few clouds, hit some heavy turbulence approaching the mountains, not the best time during a coffee intake.... Tomorrow I carry on up the west coast following the magnificent Andes to Lima with a quick tour over the Nazca lines en route.....

I'm thinking, Barrow, PABR, Wiley Post-Will Rogers Memoria Airport, Alaska.....  I have a great love of mountain ranges so at the moment I'm following the Andes up the south coast of South America then eventually pick up the Rockies and follow them north up the American west side......  I don't have any real flight plan so I'm free I can aviate and deviate ha

Well, you'll certainly get some great mountain views on that route.  For the greatest N-S distance transversing the Americas CFS Alert (CYLT) on the northern tip of Ellesmere Island and 541 miles from the north pole would be the point I think.  It is (or was)  the northernmost inhabited place on earth.

Yes, you're correct Bill, I was too focused on the west coast.... ,  I can fly on from Barrow to Eureka and then on to Alert...  that would complete the south-north odyssey nicely... I will make it so Mr......

Great work, and look forward to more. I hope someone (I'm not using 2020 so unfortunately I can't) joins you in multi-player. Would make for some good pics.

 3rd Leg Santiago  Arturo Benitez International Chile to Jorge Chávez International Airport Lima SPJC

With clear bright skies, I left Chile... A few hours later the clear morning would vanish....  Flying across Peru a storm awaited, and most welcomed.... the thunderclouds and lighting brought the Andes to life in an orchestrated display of light and sound.... The way the light and shadows were cast against the mountains partly cloaked in clouds, where a cinematographer's dream..... I'm enjoying this trip more than I expected and it's good to get some value back from MSFS2020 and awesome captures waiting for all to be plucked from the air... On this leg, I've taken the most captures so far, making it hard to pick just 10..... picked to show the magic of the SA Mesh....

Don't you hate when the real world gets in the way of our sim lives?

Yes! Phrog. a bit of shopping to do and pets to service which I think comes under house cleaning.... just general stuff, I like the decks clean for weekends... and that equates to uninterrupted sim time 😉
I forgot to mention the stormy weather with excellent lighting is orbX Camp Crystal Lake software, it comes with a weather preset that can be accessed in the weather setting anytime you fly, anywhere.... So it was a no-brainer to invoke it whilst crossing the Andes, for dramatic/cinematic purposes...

Capture: climbing out of Santiago, Chile

Great shots!  And yes, life often gets in the way of doing the things we most enjoy.  for example my "flying computer" is currently down.  So I'm just looking at the shots others have taken.  I'd rather be flying as well! 

 

Having said that, RW we're under a tornado, straight line winds, flooding watch here and throughout most of the southern and southwestern US right now.  So, RW even if I was still current I wouldn't be flying anywhere today.

Being an old chopper guy I usually fly low and slow.
