Starting left engines resulting into mind blowing exciting and massive engine start smoke Starting right engines producing massive engine start smoke that is blown forward by powerful winter winds Engines are ready for action!!! But wait I need to spool up engines for few seconds to be sure they are ready for action in bitter freezing winter weather Starting to taxi to short of runway 1 to start exciting flight! Making sure the route waypoints are ready to avoid high mountains due to the fact there is no weather radar and no terrain warning computer meaning I must avoid mountains covered by clouds. Here are waypoints: KOWOK PIPPR NUTUW WALUS AMOTT WEWWO ICICL BOB that will enable my plane to avoid running into mountains as seen on this map showing my specific flight path Entering into runway 1 for more taxi and backtrack After backtracking now starting exciting take off run producing thrilling combo of massive snow splattering and engine smoke Airborne on climb to 5,000 ft At 3,000 ft still climbing to 5,000 ft Now starting to cruise at 5,000 ft Passing Wood River that is rich in salmon fishes Passing Iliamna Lake that is the largest lake in Alaska and third largest lake in America There is offer of 100,000 buck reward by local Alaska newspaper for capture of Pacific Sleeper shark secretly lurking in the waters of that lake Cruising across the same lake where you can see that due to so extremely sub zero freezing winter, the engines are producing condensation contrails Checking all gauges to be sure everything sounds very kosher Entering Cook Inlet to continue cruising where you can see that the plane is on safe side away from 10,000 ft high Chigmit mountain range that the plane is supposed to avoid Still cruising above waters of Cook Inlet with background view of same high mountains See how safe side the plane is cruising at 5,000 ft away from mountains Whoa whoa whoa winter is soooo freezing that the engines are producing condensation contrails Sunset!! Checking gauges again to be sure that everything is working well in freezing weather On final runway approach to runway 06R (it is 06R in era 1960s/1970s) where you can see exciting engine smokes due to constant engine power adjustments to make sure the runway approach is smooth Amazing cockpit view of night city lights of Anchorage look at ice on left side!! Seconds before touchdown Okay few more seconds TOUCHDOWN Snow splattering while the plane is braking down on icy runway More snow splatter (is it fun??) Exiting from runway toward gate with background view of Million Air building Taxiing to gate with background view of Alaska Airline maintenance hangar Got to look for official Reeve airline gate which is gate number A11 (oh yes I revved up the engines on purpose to produce massive engine smokes to excite airport spotting photographers) Arrived at gate A11 while the de-icing truck is rushing to deice wings of my plane to get ready for another flight Thank you for viewing!! Stay tuned for next exciting flight. Regards, Aharon
  4. Nice biography and whoa you just finished 4 flights with 11 fast hours immediately after you joined AKA!! That is fast!!! Enjoy the AKA virtual!! Regards, Aharon
  5. @DoubleG01, Thanks for great answers!!! Regards, Aharon
  6. @DoubleG01, That is GREAT screenshot you posted on AKA Discord group!! When you made switch from FSX to MS2020, did you have to buy new pc or are you still using the same pc? If it is the former, what is your pc configuration that manages to handle switch from FSX to MS2020? Regards, Aharon
  7. @flyalaska, Ahhhhhh why did I not think of lumping three awards into single screenshot!! That is great idea and thanks for your kind assistance. Regards, Aharon
  8. @flyalaska Your guess is correct hhehehehehehehehhehehehehehehe That would be 10K Mile Award please. Regards, Aharon
  9. Shalom and greetings @flyalaska or AKA management, If it is not too much trouble, can you please increase the forum signature limit from three images to five or seven images, please? Thanks, Aharon
  10. @flyalaskaand @Drew Bourque, Sorry but both of you are not correct about BlueBox. I just finished an AKA flight using BlueBox which performed perfectly and flawlessly recording my flight, completing and processing my flight, and successfully uploading the PIREP onto AKA website without any problem. This tells me that the new pilot @Drew Bourquedid not get his BlueBox properly configured to connect to the AKA website. Considering the fact that @flyalaskahad renovated and updated the website recently, it is possible that the new pilot Drew was using Bluebox that was configured to connect to the old AKA website instead of new AKA website hence the error messages Drew was experiencing. Bluebox does NOT need to connect to the servers of the developer to function and operate. Bluebox needs to be configured to have correct connection to AKA website. My suggestion is to re-examine the settings and connection settings of BlueBox to see why you are experiencing error messages. Also make sure you are operating Bluebox under administrator rights with adminstrator rights permission given to Bluebox to operate and function. Regards, Aharon
  11. Strange I have no problem with Bluebox having a successful flight about 2 or 3 weeks ago. I sure hope I would NOT have problem with my next flight because I love Bluebox!! Regards, Aharon ????????????????????????????/ AKA Bluebox is NOT connected to their servers. It is connected to AKA website for flight recording and uploading PIREP. Maybe your Bluebox was not properly configured to connect to AKA website?? Check your settings and programming to see if your Bluebox is linked to AKA website Regards, Aharon
  12. @flyalaska Thanks for your kind words and yes we have AKA repaint for that which I used first testing flight of this plane (you can check my PIREP). This screenshot report is second testing flight for purpose of testing metallic shine and flying dynamics of the plane which is why I showed three screenshots showing gauges to show you how I was doing with flying dynamics. What this plane needs is nice AKA cargo livery. Regards, Aharon
  13. Shalom and greetings all my pals, This is exclusive review of Flight Replicas DC-4 that AKA currently has in service in its feet. Presenting exciting recreation of emergency Christmas airlift supply flight from CYHY Hay River/Merlyn Carter Airport located 1.7 miles north of Hay River, Northwest Territories, Canada to CYZF Yellowknife Airport located in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, Canada using Flight Replicas R5D (C-54G) featuring well polished/buffed masterpiece work painted and polished exclusively by repainter named Hartmut Hekmann who is the official repainter for Virtual Aircraft Restoration Facebook group owned and operated by Hartmut Hekmann and Tobias Krause. Arriving at the airport to get ready for pre-flight inspection of the plane before boarding my captain seat in cockpit look how well polished and buff the plane is in time for Chanukah, Christmas, and New Year service! Inspecting engine Inspecting another engine while marveling how well polished the engine covers and mufflers are!! Time for right side inspection Inspecting right engines (dig that metallic polish!)

Continuing pushback Finished with pushback and time to start engines!! Engines started which resulted into spewing MASSIVE engine start smoke to excite all airport spotting photographers causing them to wet their pants All engines started and ready for taxi!!

I have 34,000 thousand screenshots waiting for me to edit, research, do explanations, and of course publish!! Regards, Aharon
  14. @Kalidor, I got retro repaint from AKA CEO @flyalaska Eddie. Ask him and he will send it to you Here is exclusive flight report from me using C-130 with retro repaint: Shalom and greetings all my pals, Presenting a nice Lockheed C-130E flight from PAFA Fairbanks International Airport located three miles southwest of the central business district of Fairbanks, Alaska to CYDA Dawson City Airport located 8 nautical miles east of Dawson City, Yukon, Canada. CYDA Dawson City airport is TOTALLY impossible to land UNLESS all of you tell me that Microsoft built that airport in wrong way for FSX. Airborne on climb to FL190 after my first Captain Sims C-130 take off from PAFA runway 02L for my first payware C-130 flight Still climbing Now cruising at FL190 Beautiful three color tone winter sky Here is my new office!! (yeah four red lights in overhead panel is making me nervous) On final runway approach to runway 03 for SECOND attempt to land on that airport which turns out to be totally impossible to land on EITHER side of runway!! Yeah little dive is required to make successful landing on that extremely difficult airport Seconds before touchdown TOUCHDOWN Braking down (good thing that C-130 has outstanding extremely short runway performance since I had landed in middle of runway) Parked with marvelous view of winter sky Thank you for viewing. Stay tuned for next exciting flight. Regards, Aharon Regards, Aharon
  15. then for the newer C-130J, you need to change words in texture.cfg in the new AKA repaint to get accepted by FSX because AKA painted this for P3D. The original retro AKA repaint should work well without any modifications for C-130A to C-130E for FSX use. Regards, Aharon
