Thanks!

:utheman:

Time permitting I will make a sketchup model for X-Plane. You can check out the virtual aviation section of this forum, what i do when there is no real flying on the go. I wish we would do some flights to Namibia.

Well the sand hasn't changed :burner: :burner: :burner:

I made the scenery for Keetmanshoop using pictures on the Namibia Airports company site. I you had X-Plane you could see it in 3D
