Previous thread is getting large, so I am opening the new one for the month of April and hopefully May as well!
So here is a little Samba dance in my version!
It all started in Denver,Co with a United flight to Cancun,Mexico
Upon arrival we flew LAN Peru to Lima,Peru.
T/O from Cancun!
Isla Cozumel,Mexico, soon after the T/O from Cancun
After crossing Golfo de Honduras we finally reached the land...Honduras
Approaching Lima,Peru with Andes Mountains in the background
On ground in Lima
The nex day we boarded another LAN Peru flight and headed to Quito,Ecuador
LAN Peru bird Up Close&Personal
Over Andes Mountains
Some cute lakes on a mountain tops
Very challenging approach awaited us in Quito,Ecuador! Try it yourself!!!
Safely on ground, Quito,Ecuador [ SEQU ]
Next day we flew Aerogal to Bogota,Colombia
Here we are taxiing in Quito for active rwy.
Crazy T/O in Quito...everything is hard in SEQU...approach and T/O, both are very challenging! Very fun place to fly!
En route to Bogota.
After Bogota we flew to Caracas,Venezuela using Avianca bird!
Beautiful approach in SVMI Simon Bolivar Intl,Caracas,Venezuela
At the gate
Thanks, I'm using the freeware Real Environment Professional found on Avsim, flightsim.com or flyawaysimulation.com ...mixed with Pablo Diaz's cloud textures.... search "High Definition Environment" in Avsim...it actually contains photorealistic sky, cirrus, clouds and ENB series....but I prefer using his cloud textures only.
Love that water, is that FSX or FS9 and what, if any, is the upgrade used for it?
I was planning on uploading some new shots that I took of a flight last night, but despite there being nothing on television, I didn't do my entire flight Thanks to the "Pause" feature in FS9, my flight is waiting for me to finish it after work tonight. I am flying between Minsk and London and I paused it right near the border of Poland and Germany. I was hoping to spot a new addition into my AI skies, an E175 used by the Polish Government to replace the Tu-154 lost in the horrible crash several years ago, but I have not seen it yet.

Cool combination, I really like it!
I use REX and I am not very happy with it, as a weather engine it simply sucks in my opinion, textures are good, but not excellent. I like Active Sky way better, but as I can't run my FSX on setting I would love to, I fly FS9 at the moment and use REX.Oh well, on one of these days I will have a monster PC and will run FSX on highest settings...lol
Great pics man!

Ugh, I am about 275 miles out from London City and I alreadt have 46 screenshots and I want to post them all as they are showing off my AI setup. I might post a link to them instead of posting them here.

Quoting UltimateDelta (Reply 14): It's FSX. I use the FSX Water Configurator (http://www.strikingsoftware.com/downloads.shtml). I'm not exactly sure how mine is set, but it's easy to adjust depending on what you want.
Ah, I use FS9 still for my flying. However I am going to reinstall FSX to get back into VATSIM flying and use it solely for online flying.
I did MSQ-LCY with an iFDG A318CJ and took a lot of pictures, mostly of the AI that I encountered on the way. Here is one shot after I parked at LCY.

Your best bet would be to install a screenshot utility that can take and save screenshots into a filename and format that you choose. I use a program called SnapShooter (found it at www.avsim.com) and it saves a .jpg to a specified folder everytime I press the Print Screen button. After the flight I use an editor to crop and resize the images as needed before I upload them to my account on www.photobucket.com so I can then share the images.
Alternatively you can do it the old fashioned way of pressing print screen and then opening a graphics program and pasting the image in there and saving it. This is not really practical as you would need to minimize FS9 to do this.

Some east coast flying this morning in a Jet Blue A320. A short hop from Charleston NC. to West Palm Beach FL.
Taxiing out, its going to be a blustery take off
banking left almost immediatly to avoid some bad weather in the area
Lots of CB's floating about today
And not much better in southern Florida
I had some nasty gusts on finals, I considered going around but what the heck, the weather makes it more fun
Another successful flight
