Post subject: January 22nd Sunday bush flight

Our second step along our exploration of New Zealand begins in the dark, a few minutes before sunrise. Mountains here are not that high, but there's always the risk to collide. So prudence suggests a fast climbing, even though the first leg of the flight runs above a lake. Later, in spite of the suggested cruise altitude, it is possible to dive lower, so to better appreciate the outstanding details of the landscape. Hint: at destination, try the shorter grass strip, there's more fun.

I ran into an unusual problem with this flight plan. The originating airport, NZMW, is not recognized by FSX as an airport so you can not start a flight there. Plan-G does not show an airport symbol on their chart. And it doesn't seem top have an airport name.

I started the flight at NZUK, just to the east, and NZMW is shown as a waypoint.

Is it possible to edit the FSX data base? I don't think so.

Hi ribitt,

we use the ORBX FTX NZSI scenery, so probably if you don't have that, then the airfield won't show up.

Yeah Ribitt, Fled is right: Makarora is not present as an airfield into the stock FSX scenery, but it's an addition in the FTX add-on New Zealand scenery.

Of course, you may edit the flight plan so that you can take off from the closest available airfield, but without the FTX scenery you would miss, apart from facilities, an extremely higher level of detail.

That's as to say: the add-on is not mandatory, but I warmly suggest to grab it, because it is well worth its money.

There is a patch out for the NZSI scenery. Be sure to get that installed before the flight tomorrow. Make sure you switch to Oceania before installing the patch, and before the flight. See you on the tarmac.

Whew, what a week. The story goes like this. . . . I was watching a movie on my computer tuesday night, (the wife was making fries earlier). Suddenly the fire alarm went off, and the rest is a blur. I ran to the kitchen and found the stove on fire, and a pan of grease blazing on the stove, the wall and ceiling were on fire. The fire travelled across the ceiling and ignited the other side of the room. I grabbed a fire extinguisher we had gotten for christmas, and fought back the blaze. I almost got it out. The room, the whole house was full of thick black smoke. The plastic exhaust fan was still burning in the vent. The fire department showed up in about 5 minutes, and finished things up for me. That was sooooo close. My parents house is attached to ours, and we would have lost everything. My computer room is right on the other side of the wall from the kitchen. Our house is over 100 years old, and wouldn't take long to burn to the ground. I was so lucky that we got a fire extinguisher for christmas, and I knew where it was. Everybody . . . give fire extinguishers for christmas! It saved my house. Five more seconds and I couldn't have contained the fire.

Anyway, so I came here to see if there's gonna be a flight this week. Sorry, no pics of the fire. Laughing

WOW !!!

ppppppppppfffffffffffffffffffffffffff, sure good to hear that you all are OK and foremost that nobody got hurt.

that's what we'd call a close shave !!

dang, I hope the damages aren't to severe, 100 year old houses tend to have a lot of wood in 'm, make sure to double check for hidden damages to the beams and stuff behind the walls.

Good thing you had the fire extinguisher and knew where it was. Very glad you were all ok and that the house was saved. Hope we will be flying somewhere today.
