Tonga Cyclone Relief Supplies NZAA/NFTF/NZAA

#1 Post by Nick Johnston » Sat Feb 17, 2018 4:46 am

Still getting comfortable with X-Plane, but am very much enjoying being able to fly in Linux. X-Plane 11 seems much more stable on my machine than 10 was (the latter used to crash literally every second time I flew, whereas according to Steam I've now got over 50 hours in XP11 and have yet to experience any such issues).

A couple of those hours were spent parked at the ramp working on my first attempt at doing a repaint, adding liveries for the VA I fly with to the FlightFactor 757 v2, but I took the opportunity tonight to fly some cyclone relief supplies up to Tonga, and I snapped some pics on the way back (thank you, XP's Replay Mode!).

Apologies for people with small screens - I scaled them down to half size but they're still quite wide.

Both my outbound and return flight paths, showing the separation between the SID (RAXIN1Q) and STAR (EXOPI7B). You can't tell from this angle, but there's plenty of vertical spacing between the two procedures where they cross each other.
