After realising the latest World Update 4 included the French overseas territories, I first checked out the island of Corsica, and followed that up today with a visit to Réunion Island in the Indian Ocean.
I’ve never actually met anyone who has been to Réunion, or even heard it talked about having only lived in English speaking countries. The only reason I even knew the place existed was from FranceVFR’s photoreal FSX scenery of the island that I used to own 10 odd years ago!
Needless to say the island looks absolutely amazing with the high res DEM in MSFS now. The volcanic landscape with it’s huge calderas, massive rift valleys, and high altitude plateaus are like something out of science fiction. I’ll let the screenshots below do the talking, but have uploaded a quick flight plan that follows my route to worldtour.flights and created a new flightspot for quick co-ordinate searching inside the sim below:
