    Very nice pics and storyline to go with them. When you get to your destination, do they speak to you in Russian or does Flight Sim take care of all that?

    Just curious! Nice job Larry, thanks for sharing!

    Another great historic flight Larry. Definitely like the lighting in the second set.

    Great stuff Larry. I'm really a fan of the big old 4 engine turboprops like the IL-18 and L188. Hoping some of them eventually show up in FS2020!

    FS9 is still my no 1 simulator!
