Post subject: July 17th Sunday flight

This time I suggest you to have a close look at the map before undertaking this trip, 'cause there are many points of interest: we'll get near the Popocatepetl, highest peak in Mexico (and a threatening volcano, in brackets), then we'll pass by the side of Ciudad de Mexico (the capital city), but without stopping there.

Cruise altitude will be quite high, and once again we have to rely upon our trusted Beech, and I guess we'll go facing up to a night time landing... ouch! Mr. Green

Just out of curiosity, are there any flight where we'll take some short hops, and have some fun on the beach or something before continuing on?

LOL!

I tested the Beech up to 20.000 feet, and though cruise speed is obviously reduced, it goes nicely even at that altitude. So don't worry, we won't fall into the volcano Mr. Green

High altitude with the related problems, heavy clouds, an unserviceable autopilot, all made this flight an exciting experience - and don't underestimate the value of a successful landing!

I took almost 50 screenshots - here are some:



Love this plane too much - you won't get rid of it too easily Mr. Green

I had the opportunity to take some great shots this flight...

I love this one. Just the way the clouds obscure the mountains and make them look all foggy, and then the contrast of the lens flare... It looked great in motion.

And%20of%20course%20the%20beautiful%20sunset. And%20lastly,%20I%20love%20it%20when%20designers%20make%20a%20full%203D%20VC,%20but%20the%20entire%20cabin%20is%20just%20amazing!%20This%20is%20the%20view%20from%20the%20second%20passenger%20seat%20on%20the%20left...

Nice flight eventhough it was a little hard to breathe at 18,000ft

Even at that altitude there still was enough oxygen to ignite the exhaust gases...

All%20safely%20on%20the%20ground.

It was even scarier at a resolution of 1600x1200 Smile
