John’s Video Blog 006 – YCDR Caloundra in Sibwings Cessna Bird Dog

October 9, 2010

More info at – This is an 8-minute look at Caloundra Airport, Orbx’s latest release, and also a sneak peek at the Sibwings Cessna Bird Dog, due for release soon. The video begins with a ‘walk’ from the Queensland Air Museum over to the GA parking area. We then jump into the delightfuly “used” Bird Dog and do a quick half-circuit over Pelican Waters before landing back at the airport. If you like your airport ultra-detailed and immersive, and your aircraft so real you can see the paint flaking, this is a must-see video.

STOL Demo with the SibWings Cessna L-19/O-1 Bird Dog

March 1, 2010

This is a short video of me landing a Cessna O-1 Bird Dog ( ) with full flaps at the Strom airfield in Washington. I know I didn’t hit the center line but I think this shows pretty well that the Bird Dog is capable of very short landings. The scenery is the FTX Pacific Northwest scenery by orbx ( http ) with over 450 enhanced default airfields, due for release on February 28th.
