OMEGA tasks me to fly all over Alaska with a team of researchists and scientists in order to transport them all over the country to collect infos about the fauna and the flora of this wonderful and cold place of the earth.

Mission starts from PANC(Anchorage) and ends there with 48 middle waypoints.

You can find all the Alaska’s airport data to the following link

Aslo here are the links for the Airports I fly from and to ,this first day.

1. PANC

2. PADQ

3. PASD



DAY 1.

PANC>PAQD>PASD

The only think I had to point for these flights is the strong winds and the bad weather in most of the flight between PAQD>PASD.
Crooswind but successfully landing to PASD.Here we stop for the first day.

PANC>PAQD























PADQ>PSDA











END OF FIRST DAY.

GM is our resident pacifist at Omega-Air. While he is doing that, I'm flying in and out of Beirut. No photos...classified mission. Laughing

GM hasn't been told that one of those scientists is really setting up telemetry equipment to listen in on something going on in eastern Siberia that one of Omega-Air's clients is interested in. Wink

But, I can never complain about his screen shots. They are magnificent

DAY 3.

PAPH>PATG>PADY

PATG

PADY

Third day of this mission and we take-off at 0700 from PAPH with nice weather,lights winds and light clouds.
No problems at all during the flight to PATG and a nice easy landing.
OMEGA's repainting team was there waiting for me in order to repaint my craft while scientists collect their infos for their data-base.
After two hours the craft was ready Exclamation Laughing and we take-off for PADY with a great repainted craft in the colors of OMEGA.
At the begging weather was promising of a nice and sight-seeing flight but in the middle of our craft heavy clouds and strong winds disappoint us.
PADY is an airport close to Yukon's Delta with a short and narrow runway(1800f x 35f).Low visibility make things more difficult and makes me to do two rounds in order to get the best angle for approaching.Crosswind turn the landing to a challenge for me and scared my passengers Fear .
Finally i manage to land ,but, with about 70f of overshooting the small runway.Here we stop for this day. Wink


PAPH>PATG

Beautiful GM beautiful.
That's a very nice paint job and I do like the numbers on your aircraft.
That shot with the telephone poles, just perfect.

For my next repaint, I will get the pilot and copilot out of their current uniforms with ties, and put them in blue sweat shirts with white Omegas on them. Cool Laughing

Man, Greekman, you're not only a pilot nut an artist too!
I have to tell you this one of the (if not the) most impressive screenshots set I've ever seen!

Very good job mate!

I gotta ask you, where did you get these trees on the scenery shown in Day 2?

DAY 4.



PADY>PAMY>SCM>WBB>PAKK


PAMY

SCM

WBB

PAKK

If i want to describe with few words this day i would said Heavy Clouds.
Not the best weather for sight seeing and traveling.Light Winds but heavy clouds and overcast in most parts of this missions.
Starting from PAMY at 1100 and flying to short distance airport make the flights a challenge for me because most of times i discover the runways not further than 1-2miles before starting approaching.
Rounds almost in all of these small and difficult to approach airports.Take-offs was a challenge too and sometime i had to pushback a little more from the limits of the runway for having room in order to reach the right speed for take-off.
Fortunately i was luck and had no crashes. Wink


PADY>PAMY
















PAMY>SCM













SCM>WBB

Even your opening maps are excellent.
With the slight overcast the screenshots look marvelous.
I do like the scenery close or far it's sharp and clear. The taxiways at some of those airports is unusual, like gravel-asphalt.
Why do you wear a tie while flying is your boss (Crash) a mean guy?
I'm looking froward to the next installment.
