And what does the U.S. Forest Service do in this area? Yeah, never mind: small issue with the autopilot

The airport TNCS is named after the Aruban Minister Juancho Irausquin.
The airport has the shortest commercial runway in the world, only 400 metres (1,312 ft) long, flanked on one side by high hills, with cliffs that drop into the sea at both ends. [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Juancho_E._Yrausquin_Airport]
The Lord of the Wings - The Spike Tower
As seen from Interlaken airport (LSMI), Switzerland. Interestingly the “tower” is even lit (the FS 2020 mesh generator must really think that this is a building of some sort ;))
Note: overlay of several FS2020 screenshots (custom “Storm” weather at dusk) - and edited for effect
Hong Kong community fly-in event.
Today I checked out the new scenery in the UK. London totally killed my framerate, so I thought I’d give Scotland a visit
I started in thick clouds and rain. “Yes, England!” - but as is typical for Scotland the clouds quickly dispersed and gave way to this beautiful view of the Glenfinnan viaduct:
The second screenshot is the Loch Coruisk on the Isle of Skye. I have been to this place for real and the low-hanging clouds really add to the ambiance as I have it in memory:
From the southern end the Scavaig River, only a few hundred yards long, discharges into a sea loch, Loch Scavaig.
This makes the Scavaig river one of the shortest rivers in the UK (and in Europe).
This time I created an entire video instead of a single photo:
Video taken at Davis Monthan aircraft boneyard - the largest of its kind.
Even the crash sites look gorgeous here
