    Here is one from my archives that needs a caption...
  4. Heading into the valley...

    Thank you for for the replies everyone. I made a much less complex flight yesterday from Valencia to Palermo. No complicated approaches...just a cruise across the Med on a late Summers evening!
  5. Some recent flights

    Great colours in all of the shots.
  6. Heading into the valley...

    Innsbruck is well know for the challenges it brings to both real world and virtual pilots. It has been a long time since I flew into LOWI so thought I would give it a go last weekend. Rather than upload a lot of screenshots I thought I would stitch some together to present the flight as it unfolded. Preparation for departure from T2 are well underway and soon we start to taxi to runway 23R. It is a LISTO departure which requires a turn very shortly after takeoff but not below 750ft. er] Not much to see here....no really there isn't...the valley had low cloud and close terrain.....not usually a good combination. After a short cruise we begin the approach manoeuvring the aircraft very carefully, keeping a eye on the charts to make sure we are on track and a watchful gaze on the terrain. As we descend through the cloud the airfield comes into view. It is a slightly off-set approach so with a gentle push on the rudder we line up with the runway. A nice short taxi and we squeeze in alongside other visitors from across Europe. Hope you like the screenshots.
  7. Air Jamaica

    Great livery...love the retro airstairs truck!
  8. Aerosoft release CRJ 700/900 X

    Sounds like a great aircraft. Definitely on my wish list.
  9. PNW/PFJ + Tongass Tour 2017

    This is a fantastic part of the world to fly in. The guys at MM are so creative and talented.
  10. Purple Ronnie...he is back!

    Thank you. I will pass your kind comments onto the team.
  11. July 2017 - Happy Landings?

    Quick as you can...we will have you back over the border before the cops arrive!
  12. Purple Ronnie...he is back!

    Thanks everyone. Many VA's come and go. We have some great guys n girls flying with us and work hard to keep it interesting. To flip this around - the forum here is one of the best around. Wayne - just noted your location is the same as one of the VA's bases! Fantastic airport and well represented in FS with great scenery.
  13. Purple Ronnie...he is back!

    Hello everyone... The VA I run has been around a long time...since early 2000! Lots of things have changed in that time with the aircraft fleet passing through the paint shop several times. With such a heritage to draw upon we decided recently to paint one of the current B737's into a livery that we used many years ago. A "retro" livery if you like. When this aircraft first emerged from the hangar around late 2000 it was affectionately named "Purple Ronnie" by the crew. The original "Purple Ronnie". (FS98 maybe...) ...and the 2017 version of "Purple Ronnie" (TDS version / PMDG also available). Ronnie has been well received by the crew and even had his own special schedule created for him as he jaunts around Europe from his Manchester home.
  14. Aircraft Hangar

    SimStarters looks like it will do what I am looking for. I'm looking for a tool that can move aircraft out of the FSX selection menu in a few clicks which I have so far done my creating a folder called Hangar int he Simobjects folder. This removed the aircraft from FSX and can easily restored. The benefit is slightly reduced loading times etc. Simstarter goes beyond that and looks very powerful.
  15. Aircraft Hangar

    I remember many years ago a program called JAB. JAB allowed you to easily manage your virtual hangar of aircraft on your hard drive thus reducing FS loading times etc.. Is there a similar program still around that works works with FSX:SE and Windows 10?
