Re: Round the World 3: Adelaide's Vimy

Yes, all these pioneers right up to the start of WW2 were remarkable men and women. I'm hoping for a Vickers Vimy in MSFS at some point - maybe with the 1990's replica Vimy as an option.

Plus, I finally got to Alice Springs, somewhere I didn't get to when I lived in Australia as a boy. We had a talk at th...

Re: Around the World 2: Darwin

Ben, if you look at the underside of the Mirage's fuselage, just behind the nose wheel, you'll see she's a bit battered.

Around the World 2: Darwin

After Singapore, I flew down to Darwin. I was only there for two days, and the aviation museum was a priority. Click on the pictures for the full image: Getting off at Darwin airport. No, no, Ben...don't thank me - it's a pleasure. https://i.imgur.com/9zm9L4y.jpg Considering the museum is really onl...
