Our real Pietenpol has been back in the air for the last month or so, and on Labor Day I was able to get together with Dad and we went out for about an hour. It was the first time I have flown in Pete in years, and I really had a good time. Here are some shots from the flight  Smiley

I like how you did the tires bump-mapping, very realistic! Grin

If only I could include the contortions required to get into the front cockpit... Tongue
It's a real adventure to get in & out.  I had someone ask once if I wore a parachute...I told them by the time I got out it would already be too late!  Grin

Its nice to see some pics you have taken whilst going for a flight in the real Pete, you lucky devil.  Wink
I only get to fly in your gmax Pete, regularly. It is (and has been for a long time) the default airplane when I start FSX. So I normally I just pick an airport and off I go. But that's okay with me, because I love low and slow.

Must have been a blast. It is interesting to see everything dry and brown. My fears about winter continuing into the summer came true. We have had a cold wet summer. But everything sure is green. I kinda miss the usual August brown.

Cheers

The sceneries could use more AI traffic. Have you tried Markus Brunner's GA Traffic generator?  Grin



P.S: Nice to see a tram in a US city.
