This was a cool flight. Lots of ocean, mountains, and challenging weather including wind, rain, and clouds. The pictures a pretty big. Right click to open in a new window.

I am happy to see others fly the theme flights and post their pictures. Thanks Mike.
I took some screenshots also but it was clouds most of the way down. I used Opus for weather generation and it gave me some really different patterns of clouds and layers at times.
Just a couple of shots from my flight. I will say this, it is really lonely down at that end of the world, not a lot of civilization.
Thanks

Omar,
Your 5th picture, Over Los Andes, is awesome. I especially like how the low sun lights the hills and your plane from the side

It´s xplane 11 with not add-ons. For the moment the best simulator (my own opinion). I am waiting for the 11.10 because they have some bugs, I hope they will be solved with the new version.

Ok, thus is weird. I flew the theme flight yesterday. Today, my cousin posts on Facebook that he is in Ushuaia. As soon. As I saw this picture, I new it was the same place I flew virtually yesterday.
