Twin Otter over Antarctica

Recommended Posts

Had fun posting my Twin Otter over PNG pic so here are a few more from a flight I did using the same plane with Aerosoft's Antarctica X scenery.


This time I switched the REX textures to get a colder feel. (See here for comparison).


Route was a sunrise flight from Base Marambio (SAWB) --> O'Higgins Skiway (AQ20) --> Teniente R. Marsh Martin (SCRM).


1) Early sunrise on departure from Base Marambio (SAWB):



2) An external view of the plane against the sunrise:



3) A different angle provides an interesting change of lighting:



4) A panoramic view shows off all the different sceneries and textures at work (REX, ORBX, Aerosoft, OpusFSI for weather):



5) A few snowy hills are visible from the flight deck on approach to O'Higgins Skiway:



6) Landing with the skis down at O'Higgins:



7) The sun continues to rise as we takeoff again towards SCRM:



8) Some sinister clouds begin to form as we approach our destination:



9) My inability to find the windshield heat switch suddenly creates a serious situation:



10) A view from the outside confirms there is no seeing through the frost



11) After a few tense minutes, the windshield is thawed and the plane gets back on solid ground.



Feedback welcome. Hope you enjoy!

Very nice captures Noah. Great looking environmental effects too. :cool: :cool: :)


Thanks! I'm pretty pleased considering this is the first day I've ever messed around with screenshots. Looks like I've found a little hobby within my favorite hobby...


Can't wait to document my next flight!

All I can think: Did I buy the Engine Shop guys that bottle of scotch???

Fantastic scenery, great detail on the bird.




Had a thought...then there was the smell of something burning, and sparks, and then a big fire, and then the lights went out! I guess I better not do that again!

Sgt, USMC, 10 years proud service, Inactive reserve now :D
