Another good series, Herman.

 

However, I see that the First Officer is still missing.  Given Aeroflot's record, over the years, this time he was probably passed out in the washroom.  <_<

Nice catch and good story, Bill. 

 

Great Northern rail cars used to be quite common in this neck of the woods.  Hmm...  I just really dated myself, didn't I?  ;)

Peter, you are the champion!  Very well done!  :)

Herman, this time you got me!  My best guess is Caribbean or South America, because Air France serves both.  Beyond that, I have no idea.  :unsure:

 

All of the very best to you and your family, for 2021.  :)

"dang you guys are cleverrrr... I'll have to make it more difficult in future."

 

You can't beat the detective team of  me and Mark :rolleyes: :D... I googled 'Jetblue routes'... Boston, New York (they seem to fly to/from them a lot)... seemed most likely so google earth and the terrain matched for Boston... the other end of the flight might have taken a lot longer to find ...  :huh:  :unsure:

 

Yup.  Peter and I are good.  :rolleyes:

 

My process was a bit different from Peter's.  I know that Jet Blue is a US carrier, with lots of flights on the US east coast.  That narrowed it down.  In Google Earth, the terrain didn't match New York or the SE US.  Boston, however, was a perfect match.  As Peter suggested, the other end of the flight might have been much harder to figure out.  :huh:

Just for fun... let's have a little quiz!  Where do you think this is?

Very nice series, Peter.

 

Here's hoping that you and your family have a wonderful Xmas and all of the best for 2021.  :)

Another great flight, Herman.  Many thanks.

 

You were wondering where your co-pilot was?  Would the correct answer be:  cowering in the washroom?  :lol:  :lol:  :lol:

Any country without an extradition treaty?  :lol:  :P  :lol:

 

My smart-a** comment aside, does the Trump organization still own that?  Belay that question.  I just found the answer:

Warning - Just don't look at the price tag for this cockpit setup!  :huh:

 

 

Too late!  I don't think that I'll be adding that to my Xmas wish list.  :lol:

 

That said, very impressive.  :)

Very impressive, Herman.  Microsoft Flight Simulator, this ain't!

 

Speaking only for myself, I don't mind your posts at all.  As a bit of an aviation/space junkie, I enjoy reading them.  I'm seriously blown away by the quality of the graphics.  After looking at your above list, I can understand why.  :)

Congratulations on completing the journey, Herman.  But it looks like you parked in the middle of nowhere.  Where's the terminal?  :lol:  :lol:

Oh dear, Herman!  Did you crash and burn?  :P
