Antartica Flight

Discuss aircraft addons and repaints for Flight Simulator here

Does anyone know of a Royal New Zealand Air Force repaint of Toshikazu Harada's p3_au_as.zip P-3 Orion?

Also, can anyone give me a link to any other version of the P-3 Orion exluding the one above and Mike Stones low-polygon model?

I am planning on recreating this flight in the sim: http://www.scoop.co.nz/stories/PO0601/S00042.htm from NZCH to Antartica.

Cheers ;)

Big flight - is there an airfield you can land on in FS?
File is newz.zip by Gregory W. Hux on AVSIM.
I used Mike Stones's P3 as AI in my Wanaka video as I coud only find a FS2002 model available alternatively which has problems with FS9

Fantastic, thanks so much for the links Charl :D

I searched all over AVSIM for that file but never found it, thanks again for pointing it out ;)

As for the flight- I will be starting at NZWP where #5 Squadron is based, then fly down to Christchurch, refuel and make my way to Mcmurdo Station Pegasus Field (NZPG) just like they did in real life which you can read about via the link above.

Expect screenies soon :P

Replying to myself again :rolleyes:

You can see the screenies here: http://s11.invisionfree.com/nzff/index. ... wtopic=178

As for the flight to Antartica, I have had to call it off for the following reason:

The Pegasus Field runway is surrounded by water on all 4 sides. Because the station is located near the pole it suffers from the bug where runways are moving relative to the terrain while the plane is in motion. All approaches are visual and landings are complicated by the monotonous terrain
