Odessa and its surroundings looked rather credible. Once again I was thankful for Orbx' FTX Global.
The Carpathian mountains, a while later.
The flight turned out to be the flight o'glimpses. Here was a glimpse of Budapest airport:
And here one one of Vienna's airport:
Watching the Austrian countryside reminded me of all the other different views I had experienced: the Australian Outback, southwestern US, northern Scotland...
Then I was crossing into Germany, over the city of Passau. In the time since I departed for this trip, Orbx had released Germany North & South, and now I could take full advantage of the improved scenery.
Bavarian countryside in all its glory!
The city of Straubing, much improved thanks to the GES scenery.
I crossed the field, watched a plane land below and entered the pattern to EDMS.
It's....the final touchdown!
Taxiing to the ramp felt a bit more glamorous than usual.

So..... that's it, folks!
