Grand Tour of Europe 2017
Grand Tour of Europe 2017

Status: Active
Description: A tour which takes us around the continent of Europe. For those who use the excellent add on scenery produced by Orbx, Europe is one of the major areas of coverage, with the whole of the UK, Norway and part of Germany covered. This tour is designed to make good use of that scenery but of course the tour can be completed without the add on scenery. Special Thanks to BFL1731 John Forrest for putting this tour together for us. END DATE PERMANENT.

Source of the Nile
Source of the Nile

Status: Active
Description: The River Nile. Mysterious and historic. Wending its way through Uganda, Sudan and Egypt to emerge in to the Mediterranean Sea after a journey of over 4,000 miles. On this tour we are going to follow in the footsteps of those gallant Victorian explorers, Speke, Livingstone and Stanley, exploring the course of the White Nile to its recognised source at Jinja in Uganda. Any claimed source further on than Lake Victoria is still regarded as speculation with suggestions of sources being found in Burundi and Tanzania. We will be using the Baron B55 so is MSFS friendly and open to all ranks. Get your Safari gear on. Don your Pith Helmet and pack plenty of sandwiches. Follow the course of the river as best you can on each leg and keep an eye open for those wonders of the world that we encounter on our excellent adventure. Many thanks to BFL5441 - Geoff Price for creating this tour. TOUR ENDS FEB 28TH 2022. NOTE: THIS TOUR IS NOT SUITABLE FOR X-PLANE AS SOME LOCATIONS NOT IN THAT SIM.

Description: Buffalo Airways has decided to go into the sight seeing scene. Instead of taking a cruise ship and seeing the sights by way of water or land, why not see them from the air?

For the long legs we'll be using the DC-6 to fly our Passengers to the sights and using the B55/58 for the short up close sights.
