Re-starting the RTW Tour :

Friday, December 16th, 2011

After issues and repairs to PC’s etc,  I’m taking some time out to enjoy my self with the CIX VFR Club by flying their Christmas Caper around The Bahamas.

It’s really enjoyable.  The scenery from flightsim.com titled Caribbean Seaplane Tours is really top notch.

I seem to be getting crosswinds from 040 – 060 @ 16-20 kts,  and as many runway’s are east/west it makes for some interesting flying, but that’s half the fun..     I’m trying not to be the last to to finish,  but some people are on the way back to the US mainland while I’m only about 1/4 of the way around.

No matter though, I’m doing it for the fun.

 

Anyway, onto the reason for the post.

Christmas is coming, the goose is getting fat yada yada, you know the drill.   What with Christmas commitments I’m probabally not gonna start flying the RTW trip until the new year.  That way I can enjoy what I’m doing now with out rushing around the place.

Watch this space.

Well,   it’s in full swing.  We’re having a tour around the Bahamas for our christmas jaunt.    And really enjoyable it is as well.   Apart from the corsswinds I’m getting all the time, but they can be fun.

Here’s a link to the event :

And a few pictures that I’ve taken.  Ohh,  I ended up renting a Caravan (executive fittout) C6-SBI.  Watch for me on Vatsim.  If I’m flying,  keep away 🙂

Finally I’m back and working without a problem.  A new Power supply and 4gb of new memory and away we go.   Ohh, and a reinstall of FSX and Windows 7.

Sorted!!  More soon once I restore my FS Flight keeper database and see where I had got it.
