Let's get away from here: even ice is colder in Siberia! Just a handful of miles and we meet a different world, were airfields have more ILS' than runways, and hostesses wear kimonos... maybe Mr. Green

Hokkaido is the northernmost island of Japan, and Sapporo was where years ago winter games took place: given the season, you're better to load your brand new and luxury Spartan with skis and sleds Cool

I remember drinking Sapporo beer in a Japanese restaurant once...

Heh Marco, I have a request - I know we're swapping into the Spartan, and understandably so - but one more 737 idea for later... Any chance of us flying into the 'old' Hong Kong airfield - you know the one - through the houses onto the short strip? Especially at night or evening when the buildings are lit up.

Isn't it one of the most dangerous approaches in the world? Does it still exist?

Hi, Phil!

I think you mean the old Kai Tak airfield.
It's still available in FS9, and Google Earth clearly shows the old runway partially covered with ongoing works - or rubbles, I can't say. I agree that for us it's surely a lot more interesting than the new one Cool

The plan is - unless somebody else comes with better ideas - to tour Japan, move to South Corea, then go down through Eastern China up to Hong Kong, before turning WNW towards Nepal and Northern India.

So a stop at Kai Tak is already foreseen, and I'll arrange to make it in a Boeing Wink

Twisted Evil

this will be a very interresting flight into good Ol' Kai-Tak!

I'll probably better stay on the ground as I won't have time to fly me own kite then Laughing

We have to arrange for plenty of aircushions and foam spread evenly around the area Laughing

Make shure you have stored enough barf bags for the passengers Laughing

Any more bright idea's Deenee ?? Wink

Ideas?? Only that we fly into Lukla in Nepal. Actually 'fly-into' is pretty close description, as it is a short strip carved out of a mountain in the foothills of Everest! Do a 'google' image search on Lukla and check out the pictures...

By the way, in my searching, I found this link...

www.itsnotpersonal.com...nframe.htm

It seems that we are not the only ones on a quest!!

It looks like there are several more: if you scroll down that page, you'll see "Other world tours can be found here, here, here...", with links to many sites, except ours Neutral

The first difference I noticed is that almost all the other world tours (with just one exception) have no choice on planes: there's a restriction to one - max. three selected kites; some tours have expired.

Maps, where available, are extracted from the MS Encarta Atlas, such as in our case.

If having a look at those pages you see something inspiring that we might borrow to improve, just let me know - anyway, I'm almost sure none of them has an ATC Mr. Green

I've noticed they list all their previous flights in a link so you can download them. Great idea or is that what you meant Marco?

OUTSTANDING Marco!! Great job and at some point in the future, let me make a backup of that for the archives. In the meantime, shouldn't we be linking that page to CC? Wink

I don't know how difficult it would be, but instead of heading straight to Hong Kong, would we head west to Taiwan, then a couple long legs, and take a few slower flights around Australia/New Zealand? It would take quite a while, but I don't think time is generally a problem with you guys Smile

That is fantastic Marco - there are a few I've missed, particularly at the begining that I can now catch up on - Thanks!!

Australia and New Zealand might be nice too Wink I can see us all cramming into Milford Sound!

Jerry,
sure you can put a link to that page here; I was also considering to attach maps for each flight to be displayed, like you saw on other sites, but have to find some spare time. If you want, I can send you the page as it is now, just consider it's usually more frequently updated than the board here: for instance, right now you can have a sneak preview of the flight planned for next 12th Wink

XcaliberR and Phil,
a diversion to New Zealand and Australia wouldn't be a bad idea in itself; the fact is that we toured New Zealand already a couple of years ago - I still remember (and many of you too, I fear) my dreadful landing attemps at Mount Cook Shocked

Also, there we tested Milton's at the time newly released Shrike Cool

So, though I'm not basically against it (I enjoyed that tour a lot), I'd rather listen to others before deciding.
Wink

Correct me if I'm wrong.

As far as my information goes I tought that the "Com-Central's Flying Circus" was on a world tour, in my dictionary that is the whole world including Kiwi's and Koala's .................or am I missing something ??
