Shalom and greetings all my pals,

Presenting a nice Royal New Zealand Air Force Boeing 757-200M flight from NZTG Tauranga Airport located adjacent to Tauranga Harbour in the suburb of Mount Maunganui about 2 miles northeast of city of Tauranga to NZCH Christchurch International Airport located 7.5 milles to the northwest of the city centre of Christchurch

Plane waiting to be boarded with personnel and cargo

Being pushed back

Starting engines with nice background view of Bunnings Warehouse store

Checking left engine and making sure there is no late personnel running to the plane

Double checking for any late personnel

Checking to be sure nobody is refueling as jet blast can endanger fuel loading

Revving up engines

Starting to taxi to short of runway 25

Leaving the terminal

Holding short of runway 25 with nice background view of Tauranga Harbour

Entering into taxiway 25 for more taxi and later backtrack

I was so busy taking screenshots and admiring view of Tauranga airport and city that I accidentally ran out of runway where you can see tire skid marks of embarrassing backtracking. This is first time in 10 years of FSX flight simming that I see tires leaving skid marks on grass!!!!!

Airborne on climb to FL350 leaving view of Port of Tauranga which is New Zealand's largest port in terms of gross export tonnage and efficiency

Passing through clouds can be fun as long as you have radar to look out for other planes

If I may ask, where did you get the B757 from? I've been looking for a good B757 to fly, but both the Captain Sim and Quality Wings versions seem a bit dated...
