We now have support for seasonal texture sets, 3d clouds, and users can submit models of buildings, landmarks, towers, or bridges from around the world for inclusion in the FlightGear scenery.

We have new weather effects, thunderstorms, lightning, and rain. And you can see the ground and self shadowing effects. The approach shot shows the b1900d with it's full 3d clickable instrument panel on approach to Birmingham International (EGBB) at dusk.

On occasion FlightGear is spotting doing interesting things in the real world. Here FlightGear is being used as a real time synthetic display for a University of Minnesota UAV project. The two images (live video + synthetic view) were captured at the same time from the same perspective. You can see how closely they match. One of the goals of this project is to pilot the aircraft solely from the synthetic view. More details on this project can be found starting on my home page in my 'news' postings. FlightGear supports insertion of custom, highly detailed, photo-real scenery models for small areas.
