    Default Bit illegal in Panama: DH-"Dove" (FSX)

    Leaving Selva, an old WW-2 airstrip with a cargo of "mail" (honest) to the nearest island. Selva is a beautiful liitle freeware FSX scenery, but beware, the jungle strip is't an easy one, stay away from the trees and there's an unmarked little river crossing near the end of the runway.

    Heating up the engines of my good old weathered Dove. "Uncle" Jim is in command at the tower, he has a big gun so please follow his instructions....


    Holding short in front of the strip


    On the right the remains of the old WW-2 buidings


    Crossing my fingers


    Phew!!




    Flying low over the trees, it's foggy but you never know..




    Over the sea the fog will be much thinner I'm afraid..


    Trying to avoid radar

    Great pics, where can one find the dove?
    I used to fly jets, but I got fed up with them calling me a retard every time I tried to land...

    Sneaking under the Radar eh? What "secret Good" were you carrying this Time, I don't believe that Mail-Thingy...
    But great Plane Choice, it looks so old and rusty, I think noone would ever try to track this one as everyone thinks "It's gonna fall into Pieces before the Landing anyway"
    Beautiful Shots again my Dutch Friend!
    Cheers! Florian

    What was the four engined version called? I used to load/unload the four engined version which was converted from piston engines to turbo-props. They were called Carstadts, named after the guy who converted them. The airline was called Apache, which was out of Arizona, but contracted by Frontier to fly the Eastern Montana routes. We had to insert a tailstand under it before loading/unloading otherwise, it would fall on it's tail. (Especially if the crew moved out of their seats). Never liked starting them, as the ground power plugged into the #1 engine, which meant you had to be between a spinning prop and the wing. Very close quarters and an uncomfortable place to be. We always had to use ground power, and could not unplug until all 4 were running.

    The name just popped into my head: It was the Heron. A very strange bird!
