Aaaw the wannabe australian took pics after I'd left!
I left early since I had an OOM after having turned up the scenery detail after I'd parked. Not a very good idea on my aging PC.
This was great fun, I really we can do this again next week. Perhaps with a few new faces? Don't be shy, people!
Not everyone had the PNW scenery installed:
Try to spot the spit, he's near the middle of the picture:
Yes yes, allright, you've made your point!
Contrails at "angels 18":
A LOT of contrails in fact:
Sayuuk, our poor server host, had lag issues every time he looked at us. In the end he resorted to flying on instruments only and not looking out his canopy because we kept buzzing him to make him lag.
Here I'm on his tail making loud merlin noises to tempt him to look(yes, my textures lagged a bit too):
I had a trip to the loo having trimmed the Spit to level flight (wow this thing is stable!), and when I came back, the cheeky b*stards had already done their turn in over the Columbia river estuary and dived down to hide. Very funny guys, too bad I've got labels on!
Snowman joined late, he got a rather warm welcome when he loaded up at a nearby airport - a new haircut with our props I'd say.
No pics of the approach, fun as it was with high speed passes and all, I was in radiator trouble but managed to get down without boiling over.
Shut down, the Cubs are statics. As you can see, not had this the scenery installed.
What a great flight!
