    Default My Home Town

    I thought I would see how my home town looks in the flight sim.

    Taking off from the local airport. (Click to enlarge)

    Flying west of town we find lots of hills, forests, meadows, streams and small lakes. Great area for picnics and hiking.

    Flying east we see the town. The flight sim did pretty good job on the lay out of the town. The tall building you see is really there.

    I think most simmers try to find their house and fly over it.

    Since this is not photo real scenery the best I could do is fly over the general area.

    Great shots of the home town area! I did that once where my Florida house is. Just trees and fields. I need to do this at my “base” location and see what I can pull off. Thanks for the idea

    I believe the next incarnation of Flight Simulator will be a little more faithful. maybe too faithful.
    Wonder how much money can be made in obscuring sensitive data from the two petabytes they're using? -- Bob

    Thank you David. I do not live there anymore but I use it as my main airport.

    I am not sure I will get the next incarnation of Flight Simulator, it will probably keep track of everything you do that is Flight Sim related and them bombard you with all kinds adds etc.
