On final at Paris Orly with the new A330 after a nice flight started from Hamburg:

In the final stages, I've been escorted there by up to 3 F-16s which made it pretty sweet (thanks BARS1, Venom and GYSX).

Escorted? You collided with me several times. Incidentally, for me it was not beautiful clouds but fog.

BTW, I switched formation and recognition lights on, were they visible over the MP?

sorry if I disturbed you.
I don't remember I collided you, but maybe, some lag due to multiplay produced that ...

Formation and recognition light are not visible as you can see on screenshots.
And gears wheels are not visible.

Salut

Old Harbor Airport in Alaska. It's a really nice spot for cruising in this awesome Super Cub 150. I just fixed my desktop computer and can now enjoy Flightgear in 60fps glory!

@xen_steda
Do you have allow icing on? If so, you really have to be careful, especially in Alaska mountainous areas when ascending and descending to get over mountain tops. Both aircraft icing and carb icing can bite you in the butt. I've had it get so bad before i couldn't see out the windows. Thanks goodness you can open the window and door all the way and it is hard to get rid of. Oh, and don't forget to take the emergency equipment with you (rifle), just in case.

I do and was pleased at the effect, and then I had to crank that cabin heat and defrost. I usually set my season to summer though. The open/close window is one the best parts about these planes for sure, it's a great touch being able to toggle it.

as with most everything, practice makes perfect ;)

"Why not?" said Gurder.
