A cold morning departure from Stockholm to Copenhagen on board an SAS DC-9-41. Flight SK581 departs on the first leg of its days flying to Madrid via Copenhagen and Nice. A beautiful morning departure that sees the conditions deteriorate as we approach EKCH.
This video was flown in FS2004 (FS9) with active sky weather and REX textures.

superb Video Nathan! You must run a very good system to handle all those textures, mainly the cloud textures. What kind of system to you use. And how you get so sharp texures in this video. Even if I watch it on full sreen, there are no losses of the HD Quality. I am runing my Wide Screen at 1920x1080, filming with the same settings on saving it with HD. But in full screen I am loosing Quality?!
How did you make the view of the cockpit? And can you pls post the settings for the wing view!
I noticed during your Line up at ESSA, that in the background there is an ATR72-500 visible with the colours of BINTER Canarias. Did not know the ever have flights into that region .-)). There are located at my home Airport TFN Tenerife North. This particular AC EC-JCR in not flying anymore if I am right.
Again, great work... wait until I get my system upgraded!! .....

Great video Nathan.
I like all those fluffy clouds around the classic DC-9. Also on some parts of the video the white of the SAS-livery looked almost like an arctic blue (that arctic blue fits the SAS-livery quite nicely imho).
If you use an Nvidia card, I would highly suggest you read through his setup. It is for FSX, but most of the nhancer settings included in it work for FS9 too. Just don't include the FSX.cfg changes. His FS9.cfg tweaks are available here.
The view from the cockpit window, unfortunately, is not an HJG one. For those sort of angles, I wanted the video to look like it had been recorded using a GoPro in the cockpit. As the HJG panels don't have a 3D cockpit to do this, I took a pick from a different DC-9 that I have in FSX and edited the background out. I then "mask" it on to the video in the same way that movies mask special effects using a blue screen. You could do something similar using the HJG panels by copying the panel bitmap and cropping it to feature just the window section and mask that on. Another thing I have been experimenting with, is setting up a camera using FSRecorder sitting just behind the pilots (see the scene in the JAL DC-8 landing in Anchorage) and hope to find the sweet spot for that in future videos.
Have fun experimenting and I'm looking forward to seeing the results.
