From small dirt strips to near major size airports, that area seems to have everything and you show it all off in the best light possible.

DAY 16.

PAML>PAMH>PAMC

PAMH

PAMC

We stay at PAML area for most of the day and at noon 1500 we take off from the short runway for our next destination:PAMH.
I have to push hard my craft in order to Take off just to the limit of the runway and passing very close over the tress...No further problems and although we have a cloudy weather our flight was nice and peaceful.PAMH was located on a beautiful riverside area.Landing without problems.
PAMH was an airport similar to PAML with the same trees around runway but quite larger runway so i don't worry too much as i was taking of from there.
Our next and final destination was PAMC.Airport was located between two branches of Yukon River in a very nice area.We stop here for this day Wink

Unbelievably sharp, clear and those water textures are perfect. What a beautiful day to fly over such grand scenery.
I hate to ask how many screenshots you take just to get the perfect ones that you post here.

Remind me to avoid posting screen shots of the same areas or it will look like I'm using FS98 by comparison.

I don't think I've seen anything to match what GM72 does.

Honestly GM, you've taken flight simulation to a whole new level. Outstanding work by far Wink
Have you ever had that feeling, where everything just seems right, and you have no cares in the world..As if heaven smiled down upon you, and told you everything was going to be ok?




Yea, neither have I

DAY 17.

PAMC>SRV>HCA>JZZ>PASX

SRV

HCA

JZZ

PASX

This day was a long one.We have to fly to four different areas starting at 1000h and finally land at 2100 at PASX.
Weather from departure airport of PAMC was with heavy clouds around us and a heavy atmosphere with light winds.Ground temperature at 14C-57.2F.
Take-Off without problems but having turbulence in most of our flight.Difficult approach cause of strong winds to SRV and also some big trees very close to the short runway.Finally we land safe.
After 1hour we take off for our next destination HCA.The weather becomes colder but better with only some moments of turbulence.Landing at HCA without problems and after a short break we start our next flight to JZZ.
Long flight(about 2hours)over boring areas without something special to notice.Landing safe to JZZ.We spend noon here and late at evening we start our last flight for this day.
Flying to PASX was a great experience.Heavy clouds,rain,overcast,turbulence at the beginning make this flight a very interesting one.
The daytime has given us some excellent opportunities to watch the mountains the lakes and the valleys with many different colors and views.Landing at PASX at 2100 without problems but tired form this big day... Wink

GM,

I think everyone is going to figure out you've been posting real world photos in the screen shot gallery. Laughing

Well GM, I'm a little late (I was gone again) but your screen shots are great. I don't know what I can say that hasn't already been said. Great work, love the Cessna Caravan and you're my hero. Bow Down Bow Down Bow Down

DAY 18.

(Apologize for the number of the uploading shots which makes the pages slow....But due to circumstances i had to get in a hurry Embarassed Embarassed Embarassed )
Wink
PASX>PASP>CXC>PACY>PAMD>PAWR>PANC

PASP

CXC

PACY

PAMD

PAWR



This last day of our mission we start early morning from PASX and finish late noon at PANC.
The weather wasn't so friendly in most of our flights with strong winds,heavy clouds,overcast rain but also some short moments of sunshine ,especially in hight alt.
High snowy mountains makes us enjoy and admire the beauty of this wonderful country.
I was wondering how will this trip be if it was at winter time...The only think i have to point for this last day is that i had the most difficult landing of all i had till this moment... Shocked
The small airport of PAWE was located in a gulf surrounding by high snowy mountains.Overcast and strong winds was an addition.I land with a few feet of overshooting the runway.A little more and i would have crash in the rocks in front of me... Confused
Final flight to PANC with strong turbulence and strong winds don't make it a celebrating flight as we wish to,since it was the last one,but it was a seat on the pants one...Fortunatelly safe landing in the huge airport of PANC.Thats how we see it after 18days of landing in any kind of airport we could imagine.... Wink
