Ah... A minor complication. But this does NOT cancel your training flight.

I don't think it's going to be calm much longer

Here is entry # 3.

Caught in a flash of lighting during a storm over Tasmania in my Bush Hawk. 18 miles out. Soon I'll be in drinking a hot cup of coffee, safely on the ground.

How do you get storms in REX?

Easiest way is to use the FSX weather screen and select one of the stormy weather options, it still uses the textures from REX

(P.S Please try and keep this topic for shots, ta :blush:)

Some stunning entries so far this month! :thum:

I've just been out storm-chasing in my Duke. But there comes a time when one must dash for home!

Battling on towards the airfield:

And a few hundred yards from touchdown (cropped for better effect):

(Landing light effects/halos drawn just behind the actual landing lights, annoyingly!)

Good luck all :cool:
