I could not be certain and may be wrong but I think that is one of SHM's sceneries, probably before 2017.2.

A bit of a south coast hop with an absolutely classic aircraft. Bembridge (EGHJ) to Lee-on-Solent (EGHF) to Bournemouth (EGHH).

I discovered the other day that the aero club based at Lee-on-Solent airfield own a Robin DR400. You can fly in one for an hour as a PPL taster lesson, but for me it's more of an excuse just to get up in the air with a plane I really do like (at least in FlightGear...), since I can't cough up £8000 for a PPL licence. Also haven't flown an aircraft in four years so would be nice to do it again!

Probably my last FG video - Short geographical tour from Kathmandu to Paro around Cho Oyu, Mount Everest, Makalu and Kanchenchonga :

It is damned time consuming, because there is not OpenSource video editor with Smart Encoding feature :(

Where did you get the osm2city scene from and on what Fg version are you runnig it? The textures on high buildings looks wrong - maybe a bug I should correct?

I've made VHXX ages ago. Quite likely you've already fixed that bug :)
OSM buildings for LOWI, EDDC
Custom scenery for VHXX YMML
Edit .stg via the FG Object Placement Tool

From LZIB to LOWI for 10 000$ hamburger :

Not edited, how it fell out from OBS Studio. BTW, it is very nice piece of software, on modern machines can use GPU hardware accelerated encoder. But I observed strange thing - when I landed, I had 14-17 fps at LOWI. After FG restart and take off from LOWI in the same weather, I had 30 FPS.

Oh Snap! And here I was thinking that you were going to show us how to land both planes while sideslipping, without flaps...

That's a little beyond my skill level at the moment XD

Possible.
It was somewhere between BIELLA NDB (BLA) and approach fix CG27, I used AIRAC 201905 cycle database, STAR SRN1Y and approach IGS27.
