The Forth Bridge is the most prominent landmark in the area, 2 nm N of Edinburgh airport. There are actually three bridges at that location, Queensferry Crossing, Forth Road Bridge and Forth Bridge and as of January 2022, you can fly under all of them with no collision. If you are careful!
I did escort the fighters successfully. My wingman did most of the work as I directed him via voice command. And then I took out the enemy AWACS (scratch one MiG-29...). This is the first video I've made with voice control, using Voice Attack. I make so much more use of the wingman when I can simply talk to him rather than hunt around in the dark for keys!
Night flying! >> Dangerous << Exciting! >> Even more so when you're being shot at... << Actually the graphics in MiG-29 Fulcrum look stunning at night, and of course draw distance becomes irrelevant. Enjoy this one!
Second attempt at this bombing mission. The bombing is very forgiving in this sim... but then we ran into the most 'Top Gun' helo pilot of all time! Then I shot him down. I found the explanation for the 'Top Gun' helo pilot in the documentation for the mission editor. Flight models and aircraft models are independent... and the manual warns not to assign an F-16 flight model to a chopper... which is exactly what some wag at Novalogic did here!
"Other screen caps by me, FlyingSinger,
with standard Orbiter 2005 installation, plus high-resolution ""level 9"" earth textures, well worth installing (free of course, all Orbiter stuff is, amazingly, free).
Captain Scarlet debuted on TV screens in the 1960's as Biggles reimagined for the 21st century, in the 1960s with ripping yarns and tales of derring-do. The "New Captain Scarlet" is a CGI masterpiece from the master of 'boy's own' adventuring, Gerry Anderson.
