Around the World (Like this has never been done)

Figured I'd take a tour around the world and thought that I would share (because it is a screenshots forum). My only concern at this point is making the final stretch home from Hawaii to California in the B24 Liberator that I'm making the tour in. I think that its range is only about 2200 NM's in the B24 and the flight is about 2500 NM's... But I'll cross that bridge when I get there.

Leaving my home in Bakersfield

Leaving California's Southern Valley

Let's see that again

How 'bout a look through the glass

First turn in Long Beach, CA (the quality of the scenery needs help!)

How 'bout a close up

Fair weather

Blue sky

Arrival into McCarren INTL

More blue sky

Into the Grand Canyon

Over the Grand Canyon

Descent into Utah

A snowy arrival into Salt Lake City

If your interested, check back as I may post more of my progress[/img]

Its the "Wings of Power" that shockwave put out as an add-on. I'm pretty satisfied with it. All of the gauges and sound work and the paint jobs are good. The only thing that I would change is droppable ordinance. Other than that I would rate it an 8.5 to a 9.

It's not so difficult to fly to hawaii with the plane Wink
Just make sure your RPM's are low so you burn less fuel Wink
Or if it doesnt work get to an high altitude and "dive" the plane with no fuel to the islands Razz
Shouldn't be hard Smile

I was also thinking of flying about 20'-30' off the water to get that "cushion" effect. I don't think that there's 20' waves in MSFSX...
Thanks for the words of advise.
