    A very realistic return flight

    Post by britfrog on Tue May 01, 2018 9:09 pm

    today I had what must be the most realistic flight i have ever had in a p.c. simulator, i am still gobsmacked with the closeness to reality I took a flight from Manchester Barton (EGCB) to Welshpool (EGCW) and back, now in reality i know the area reasonably well having flown into Manchester (EGCC) many times as well as Liverpool (EGGP) however I have never flown into Barton or Welshpool

    The first pic is as I climb out of Barton and you can see the Manchester ship canal and the M6


    the second is the junction of the M6 and M56 with the old Stretton wartime airbase and the new airfield (grass) on the left



    the third and forth are somewhere in the region of Northwhich



    This photo is of Ellesmere, you can see an old railway cutting on top right


    This pic shows the old base of Rednall still in private use


    approaching Welshpool you can se the current railway going off to the left and the old disused Now trees passing underneath


    descending downwind forwelshpool


    sadly the airport buildings did not show up however the grasscutting tractor did with cuttings spraying out behind


    So back in the air again i love the shadows of the tree line and you can easily see the line of the old railway


    and again here you can see where the line used to cross the road and then bend right in the distance


    getting back to Northwhich area and there is a freight train trundling down the line near the left wing


    and back to Stretton airfield again


    approching manchester and the canal


    getting closer to barton you can see the yelloe field between the motoway and the canal


    and finally downwind

    I just cant get over the clarity of the photo real scenery and the auto-gen looks great compared to FSX and or P3D. Did you make the scenery and was it GE or Bing satellite images?

    Thanks for sharing Nigel, cheers Mike

    Hi Mike, I made the scenery with GE using orho4xp however the photos were not colour corrected , I have my monitors adjusted to reduce the haze and increase contrast so what I see when I am flying is more like the following pics

    Its a small pity that the way XP portrays motorways and motorway bridges is a bit naff no doubt in time that will be fixed, on the whole though it is for me, a natural progression from FSX, the interface takes a bit of getting used to, but you can do some things easier in XP than FSX and you must forget some old ways of doing things that we have been used to doing for nearly 30 years .
