Seeing as this beauty has no undercarriage, does anyone have an idea where I can down load a docking area as a starting point.? 😕

Go to any city on the coast. I go to Florida, when you choose the city in the bottom left corner you can choose runways see which has a "water" runway.

I used to watch the Short Sunderlands on the water at a base in Felixstowe
where a huge crane was used to lift them from the water. This was in the late 40's so I'm showing my age - where can I download of these wonderful birds??

For Mals pal - Felixstowe is on the east coast of the UK and the boats used the river Orwell - between Felixstowe and Ipswich (that's not the Ipswich in
in Australia!!)

Thanks RadarMan will do.
Verygom try here

FS Planet have an extensive data base, and membership is required to get fast downloads otherwise you wait in a queue. They do, however, send you frequent listings of new add ons.
Incidently we are of the same era 😉 I came out here in 1985 after retiring from the RN. I had a couple of weekends in Ipswich while I was at Honington serving on 809 Buccaneer Sdn.

Thanks Malspal
The only way I can see of flying the Sunderland from the river at Felixstowe and over HMS Ganges (how real can this get! 😂 ) is to drop a float plane in and then switch aircraft. I've had success flying the Dornier
flying boat (which also has no undercart) from various lakes found on 'new search' in the location set up but probably not big enough for the
Sunderland.

A lot in Alaska? Where? I have yet to see even one, at least here on the island. Tell me where please, I'd like some photos and maybe a flight or two. But I haven't seen it in Homer, Seward, Kenai, Soldotna, Sterling, Anchorage, Kodiak, or any other peninsula areas. Maybe Fairbanks. I don't care if it's in Juneau, I wouldn't go see it. Nothing in Juneau but a bunch of Capital wanna-be's. The real capital is Anchorage and everyone knows it.

Anyway...where?
