    • Bailing outa' lighthouse tours
      OK, I shall try this. Thanks! Jim
    • Sewall Airstrip? Seriously?
      Ok Jarold. Got it..  The tour download is now working.. (mis-character in the link.. sorry bout that).. The ink to the tour download is all good now.  And you kinda of needed to get the DL as it contains links to all the scenery pieces which is at RTMM. Several of these airports are only contained in RTMM scenery and won't be in your sim until the scenery is installer.    RTMM Individual Zipfiles Needed for this tour are as follows:
      PF15 - Nadina Mountain Airstrip ( http://return.mistymoorings.com/scenery/zipfiles/nadina_mountain_ranger_station/nadina_mountain_ranger_station_v1.0.zip) PF20 - Misty's Place ( http://return.mistymoorings.com/scenery/zipfiles/mistys_place/Mistys%20Place.zip) PF24 - Sewall Lodge ( http://return.mistymoorings.com/scenery/zipfiles/sewell_lodge/sewall%20lodge%20v1.5.zip) PF17 - Khutze River Lodge ( http://return.mistymoorings.com/scenery/zipfiles/khuntz_river_lodge/PF17_Khutze_River_Lodge.zip) PF10 - Kowesas River Lodge ( http://return.mistymoorings.com/scenery/zipfiles/kowesas_river_lodge/kowesas_river_lodge.zip) PF25 - Wilson River Lodge ( http://return.mistymoorings.com/scenery/zipfiles/wilson_river_lodge/wilson_river_lodge.V1.6.zip) PF27 - Telkwa Mountain Lodge Airstrip ( http://return.mistymoorings.com/scenery/zipfiles/telkwa/telkwa.zip) PF30 - Victory Valley ( http://return.mistymoorings.com/scenery/zipfiles/victory_valley/victory_valley.zip) PF37 - Tezwa River Ranch ( http://return.mistymoorings.com/scenery/zipfiles/tezwa_river_ranch/Tezwa%20River%20Ranch%20v1_4.zip)   RTMM "Barnstormers" Zipfile  -  ( http://return.mistymoorings.com/scenery/zipfiles/barnstormers/Barnstormers.zip) Barnstormers zip file includes the following locations for this trip. PF53 - Detna Creek Airfield, CAS2 - Moose Lake Lodge, CBT3 - Pan Phillips Ranch, Marila Airstrip, PF51 - Streatham Farm Airstrip, So without the RTMM scenery, the many of the airstrips will not exist in your sim.   So put the RTMM scenery in.. and load-er up.. then the airstrips will be present. Let me know if you have any problems. Norm AKA995

      When I fly it, planning to find the subsequent point(s) and land there, then when done for the day, will save the finished scenario as default so when start up the sim the next time for the next leg, I'll be at the correct spot to resume. (Well will give it try that way I think and I just hope I can keep my bearings.l).  Norm  
    • Bailing outa' lighthouse tours
      It's a good one indeed. The navigation is a challenge but fun. What I can't seem to figure out is how to re-position the aircraft at the last lighthouse starting point. The aircraft doesn't slew in P3D why the 'Y' key command. I guess I could just leave the sim as is until I start on the next leg? Jim
