The previous thread was getting long on the tooth, so here´s a spanking new one just in time to warm us up like a cozy jumper during this winterishy times (excepts our pals in the southern hemisphere who are enjoying summer)
Anyways, I will kickstart this with some whaleshots.
EK50 Munich to Dubai.
Sceneries by Aerosoft (EDDM)
Project Airbus A380
Sadly I did not take any screenshots of the inbound flight, and I should have, because the approach into MUC was a total joy, visibility down to like 1 mile gray all around and some rain thrown in for good measure.
Being readied for the 5:50 flight down to homebase.
Higher up view, dwarfing that poor little Embraer Jet.
Tail Cam shot.
Flight was uneventful and after 5 hours and a bit, we are well on descent, here we are approaching Dubai City, Burj Khalifa clearly visible.
I cannot stress how amazing Flytampa´s DXB is, they have outdone themselves with this gem.

Took advantage of my day off to do some flying, up to an area that I have not been to all that much, Alaska.
SEA scenery is Fly Tampa
ANC scenery is a recently released freeware package
Holding short at active
Descending into ANC with some low level clouds
About to touch down with the cargo ramp in the background and a rare visitor, an AN124
Even more BR cargo haulers on the ANC ramp...a home away from home it seems
At the gate
While looking at Flightaware's history of ANC, I noticed I had a lot of missing carriers. I am installing them now for my outbound flight. Not sure where I want to fly next, but it will be a carrier who operates at ANC.
Thanks. Since I was in Alaska, I thought I would make the hop on over to Russia and since this route is a real seasonal based flight, I thought I would do it. I love the scenery of the Far East of Russia. I was almost tempted to fly down to my sister-in-law's home town of KHV but decided not. I am now doing the return flight to ANC, about 200 miles left to go. Maybe some other time I'll make the flight to KHV in an ultra not realistic fantasy non-stop flight from the States.
Nice A380 shots, I wish I could get ground shots as crisp and clear as you have in your third image. I am still on FS9, not FSX (it is installed, but I love my ai aircraft and plans and they are all in FS9) and am thinking of getting Ultimate Terrain soon....1.6GB download.

This screenshot is a little different:
Today, at 0216Z (0916 local - FS time), an Airbus A320, operated by Seagle air, impacted mountainous terrain west of Innsbruck. The condition of the 155 passengers and 6 crew on board is unclear. DFDR was located and found undamaged. The trajectory flown:
Crew was attempting to fly the RNP approach to runway 26, but found a problem with airplanes descent rate. They decided to go around and follow the published procedure, and passed above INN airport at abut 4800ft. Reason of crash is not known as of now, probable crew error.
The light at the end of tunnel turn out to be a lighted sing saying NO EXIT
I'm so torn about that...it looks great, but I have so many repaints for the AI Aardvark 737NG that it would take ages to get everything transferred over...fortunately my AI 737 Classic fleet was considerably smaller!
And man...I've been away a long time! Here are a couple shots from the meantime:
N942FR landing from the north in DEN as F9 721 from Omaha

The new models are so nice. And if you are a FSX user, there are FSX specific models that utilize larger paint kits, allowing painters to add in more details. I am still on FS9, but am slowly moving to FSX because of these FSX specific models. I have a massive AIA B737 install also, but am slowly moving them over as I install new plans.
Nice shot, my next flight will be with a Project Airbus A319, once I find a suitable panel. Ever since I bought my 23" wide screen monitor, the panel I used to use on my old 20" monitor no longer works, the view is all jacked up and is looking down on the runway. Kind of hard to fly like that. I need to find a panel soon, last night I completed my "positioning" flight to setup my next flight with the A319.
