well i have pictures again Very Happy !

this time I am going from Saba Island to St Barth Island(TFFJ), both are very dangerous airports, but planes always go there!

Saba can be the most dangerous/shortest airliner plane(STOL) runway in the world, and whats worse is there are cliffs on both sides!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Landing in TFFJ can be cool, if going the over hill direction, the plane will be very steep sometimes!!!!!!!(DHC-6 will look very steep)

Now for the shots!

Aircraft: Abacus Private Pilot's PC-12








AHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

now ya see how dangerous?



St Maarten to my left and St Barth to my right i think







to fast turn around....

STEEP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!














COMMENTS PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We have reached our cruising altitude,I am going to switch the seat belt sign off. Feel free to move about as you wish, but please stay inside the plane till we land ... it's a bit cold outside, and if you walk on the wings it affects the flight pattern.

PC-12s can be really cool they can takeoff in short distances, and land in really short distance too, they have strong braking(and reverse thrust)!!!!!!!!!!!!! Very Happy Cheers! Yes

Hi jianqing. Your shots are really nice but, well, lets face it, they arent that crash hot. Here are a few tips to make them better:

1. Put your anti aliasing up, if you dont know how to do this PM me.
2. Get yourself a few environment addons. Flight Environent Pro is very good for your clouds and sky textures, and Ground Environment Pro provides nice ground visuals (they cost money but its worth it). And also REX 2004 (might hurt your comps frame rates though).
3. Get better detailed aircraft. Project Opensky have some really nice free planes (http://www.projectopensky.com/). Or you can go payware and get yourself PMDG (heavy on frame rates again) or Carenado for GA (very nice, good on the FPS too)
4. Get some airport scenery. FlyTampa have a brilliant TNCM and SABA and TFFJ airport pack, very good on the frame rates, you wouldn't think so looking at how brilliant they are.
5. Resize and sharpen your pictures. Download Paint.Net, and resize them and sharpen. What I make sure to do is to sharpen before resizing, and your shots come out nice and crisp.
6. Tweak your settings to get the best visuals, while maintaining those frames.
7. Here are a few websites to help you get started.
-http://library.avsim.net/
-http://flightsim.com/
-http://simviation.com/
-http://secure.simmarket.com/default-en.html


Eventually, your shots will come out very nice and clear and sharp, like this! Very Happy


Hope this helped!
