Tampere (EFTP/TMP) to Riga (EVRA/RIX)
From Tampere, I jumped in an airBaltic 757-200 for a trip down to Riga, Latvia (I would have gone to Talinn first, if I’d known Drzewiecki Designs had released a great new version just hours earlier).
Climbing out over some of the many Finnish lakes in the region.
Touchdown – spot on!
This was actually a (relatively..) smooth landing for me For some reason the 757 loves to flex its wings like crazy at the slightest bump – must be those heavy winglets!
Taxiing to the Stand
Full album here.
Riga to Krakow (EPKK/KRK)
Parked at the gate
I already love this livery…
Cruising over Poland.
In fact, I spent most of the flight just looking at every detail of this aircraft – it has fast become my favourite!
Just passing over the motorway at the end of Krakow’s runway.
Full album here, as always.
Krakow to Prague (LKPR/PRG)
Trying something different here and going with some GA – Carenado’s very well made Beechcraft Super King Air! I don’t really like the aircraft having flown it unfortunately (though I do like its bigger brother, the B1900D)
Taxiing out from EPKK
En-Route to Prague
Prague to Munich (EDDM/MUC)
Parked at the Gate
None of the different pushback truck sizes I have available fit this plane
Skymaxx v2 really does improve clouds tremendously!
You can just see the airport between the clouds!
Another safe touchdown!
Munich to Vienna (LOWW/VIE)
I decided at this point I had to start using my absolute favorite aircraft in X-Plane a bit – the JARDesigns A320neo!
Engine Start on a Cloudy Day
Thankfully, the weather cleared as I climbed away from Munich!
This perspective is one of my favourite, I think it’s perfect for making any aircraft look brilliant!
Vienna to Bratislava (LZIB/BTS)
Finally, a quick flight in the lovely Cessna CT206H by Carenado to Bratislava, where I’ll end this post.
Parked in Vienna
I don’t really think Vienna’s main airport is very accepting of tiny Cessnas really, but this is a sim so I can do what I want!
Joining the Approach
Flying very close to the airport before turning 90 degrees to final; the little Cessna is so small that even a few nm seems like hundreds at approach speed though!
OK, I’ll admit this picture isn’t from the same flight, but I just HAD to show off the scenery at Bratislava! This is made by Taxi2gate for FSX, and converted over privately for myself, with a load of statics added for good measure!
Oh, and of course – Fly safe!
