ShackStream: Come fly to Melbourne with Shack Air

The Australian world update has been out for several weeks now, and it's about time that we check out the new scenery and hand-crafted airports.

The most recent world update for Microsoft Flight Simulator improved much of the Australian scenery and added countless landmarks and several hand-crafted airports. To have a closer look at what Asobo has done, we'll be flying from one of these hand-crafted airports, Shellharbour, to Melbourne.

Shellharbour is located just south of Sydney, and we'll try to fly an extra long departure to have a look at the various landmarks before turning south towards Melbourne. We'll be flying in the excellent freeware add-on Airbus A32Nx from Flybywire and sporting a special 100 years Qantas livery available from For more details of what was included in the Australian world update, check out the trailer below.
