This sounds like a lot of fun… but because I am ‘me’.. I am thinking of doing the trip by sea, mostly, and then mixing some other sims in along the way 🙂

“Flashing” or flickering gauges have plagued both the 737 and F421 sim PC’s. Both are running good graphics cards, both are running Win7x64… I *know* both of these machines ran FS9 nicely under Windows XP.
After a bit of google searching and forum reading I had no clear fix, or even a cause!
Tonight I installed and ran nVidia Inspector, applied my favorite settings, then disabled Anti-Aliasing, and texture filtering inside fs9 and voila! no more flashing/flickering gauges!
After spending a few weeks around NZ, Canterbury is once again heading out on the high seas. This morning she cleared Western Australia and headed out into the Indian Ocean.
A beautiful sunrise West of Perth 🙂
Tonight I had a spectacular flight from Whenuapai down to Whitianga on the Coromandel Peninsula. This is an area I have not really flown before, and I’d completely forgotten that there was photo scenery for the re installed in the sim! Arriving in Whitianga was **beautiful**!
And for those following along, Whitianga in the middle of the map, surrounded by some amazing landscapes, and plenty of small airfields to visit 🙂
It’s been a while, but very soon the TA-4, Arrow and Canterbury will all be in the same geographic location….
After almost 3 months Canterbury is almost home, and will be meeting both of my sims in my virtual world. Canterbury is due at Devonport tomorrow evening, while the Skyhawk is already at Whenuapai. I hope to fly the Arrow down to meet them both tomorrow evening, bringing them together for the first time this year!
HMNZS Canterbury has been on a bit of a voyage over the past 7 weeks or so, leaving NZ far behind, she visited the Southern, South and North Atlantic Oceans with stops in Portsmouth and Benbecula and has now arrived in New York. Must be time for a virtual party for the crew!
