So it looks like u are a good pilot and A2A did a proper research :-)

We all know that A2A has done their home work. Not sure just how good of a pilot I am but I do muddle through. The enjoyment of the Connie is amazing.

Just an update on my engines. Today I hit 681 hours on my airframe. My freshest engine has 658 hours. This is over 100 hours on the engines sense they started showing "Poor" condition. I guess for Thanksgiving I can be thankful that they have not let me down yet. It will be fun to see just long I can make them last.

Cheers

So tonight I lost my first engine at 729 hours. Not quite sure what happened but on my way from Stockholm, Sweden to Berlin, Germany the engine failed. All gauges showed well within limits and the same as the other engines, i.e. torque pressure, oil pressure, fuel burn, RPM, temps etc, however the manifold pressure on engine 4 was an inch, maybe a hair more, under the others. I assumed I had lost a supercharger (nothing to critical, right?) so I did not shut it down as I divert to Neubrandenburg AB, Germany.

Should I have shut engine 4 down? Would the Maintenance Costs have been lower if I had? Was the engine completely dead and windmilling and if so why would the manifold pressure so closely follow the other engines as throttles changed and why would RPM's mimic the exact same as the other engines?

Looking for suggestions, ideas, input.

Also, if I was not considered to be responsible for the "RARE AND SUDDEN FAILURE" then why would they dock my salary $2,507.00? This is a real conundrum! This makes me want to return to my last saved data file and rebuild all engines before flying again. I might just do this, not sure yet.

Thanks much
Roger
