Here is a few picts of Catalina Island. I wish FSX looked more photo realistic. This is a cool place to fly into. The FSX just looks kind of plain.

Yeah, I know, it is kind of bland in FSX.

Did you know my grandpa used to fly a Beech 18 out of Catalina island? My dad said that was quite exciting,

Hey HT,

That is cool, bet those were exciting flights in a Beech 18. I would love to just fly in one. But into Catalina that would be nice.

Those are AWESOME photos. I really like the one with the Husky. Do you know where it was taken by any chance?
edit: never mind, I found it on their website, "This particular paradise is the "Main Salmon River in Idaho, Wilson Bar USFS air strip" You know where I'll be flying later!

Hey HT,

That is a cool spot for landing, we may have to do a session there. That Joystick is cool, I like the way it comes apart for full HOTAS capability. I may have to look into one of those. Really good price on it too. Let us know how well it works.

HT, that wilson bar airstrip is pretty awesome, there is nothing like low and slow over the backcountry. Wish I could do that kind of flying.
