Mount Bosavi, PNG

Recommended Posts

Mt Bosavi is an old volcano in Papua New Guinea rising some 8000 feet from the floor of the Fly River basin.  In 1965, as a passenger in a Cessna 180, I flew into the crater, did a circuit below the level of the rim, and flew out again. You do this sort of thing when you are young and stupid!

The attached photo of the rim was taken on that trip in 1965. The MSFS 2020 screenshot shows the gap in the crater through which we flew.

I am currently using MSFS to fly into all the airstrips, both in PNG and Indonesia, that I have visited over the years on the island of New guinea.  The graphics are, to the best of my recollection, true to what they are on the ground.  There is one strip that I particularly remember as it was there that I came the closest that I ever did to catastrophe. I am looking forward to the coming Oceania update.

Very nice!

Always Aviate, then Navigate, then Communicate. And never be low on Fuel, Altitude, Airspeed, or Ideas.

Isn't it nice to be able to relive your real-world adventures like this?

Yes it is!  And I'm sure many here will agree, it's also nice to live through some of those RW adventures as wel!!  Great shots!

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