Re: Always do a pre-buy

Hi Folks i really don't know what you're all fussin' about: just check you're belted up tight, get warm togs on assuming the door falls off, AND keep nice 'n low 'n slow (preferably on the ground) and keep the trip VERY short, say 10 ...... feet, if that! This is so serious and sad and how comes no ...

don't forget to celebrate your successes

Hi Pilots So, after toast 'n marmalade and a good 'ol cuppa, it's Alderney EGJA (channel islands) to Shoreham EGKA (Brighton), super Orbx airports. BUT what to celebrate with? First thought is Spitfire, but then again any of A2A wonderful planes: Comanche, Bonanza, T6-Texan/Harvard, ........ What wo...

Re: A2A wow!

Hi Russell many thanks for your message with all your positivity and enthusiasm. This spirit is exactly what's needed to combat damn Covid-19! 2 absolute rules: "if it looks good, then it flies good"; "if Dudley says it's good, then it bloomin' well is definitely good!"

Re: P3Dv.5 Checking for updates

Hi Dudley please go to P3D site as linked. So, in this instance, scroll down and you'll see that there is a HOT Fix 2 for V5 to download. https://www.prepar3d.com/ I guess most of the time you "only need" to install the update for the 'client' and not bother updating the whole thing inc. 'content' a...

Re: Inside The Cockpit - AT-6G Texan

Many thanks for offering this video, Buffy; a great start to my Sunday evening ......... even though I'm stuffed with roast potatoes! I wouldn't have come across this excellent and detailed T-6 movie; described with genuine enthusiasm. And we own one, Buffy! Mine's in Oban, Scotland. Tomorrow it's o...

Re: First A2A product Comanche or Bonanza

Very welcome Russell, the more I thought about your 'quest' the more I couldn't stop myself replying. With logic to the sequence, I'd start with the fantastic, classic and fulfilling Piper Comanche 250. Then immediately you wont be able to resist reaching out for the more intricate, superb and wilde...

Re: Do you have Guts or Balls?

Dear Ron you should be totally ashamed of yourself; as I am, to reply that I very nearly meet the criteria on both counts ... after a few regretted but not forgotten trials. Thanks ... an ace-start to my day! Rod EGBB (sun's shining, patchy blue sky, apples to pick AND "mums the word" (please don't ...

VE

Hi Pilots as well as my VE Day stand to attention on the street this 11am, I've just flown Supermarine 308 and landed (well!!, maybe a bit of "wing-wobble") at Sywell EGBK (Northants, England) from Wolverhampton EGBO. Low cloud with variable visibility till 2000ft. Newly installed Orbx TerraFlora v2...

just cant get over this bird

Hi Pilots Weather fair and 29P arrived Belfast City (EGAC) next to famous docks across from Glasgow (EGPF). This has been a sublime experience; so realistic and immersive in the plane's detail. Always, always excited by this fantastic Comanche. Could still make further improvement on smoothness of l...

Top o' the morn' to you all; pilots from all parts of our magic planet! xxBonanza'sxx, I mean Sandra, has just told me that the Welsh police have caught and fined English sneaking down B roads at night to get to their holiday homes in beautiful Wales.

Re: Aerostar

"WOW! WOW! WOW!" Thank you Arturo for this link. Though not recently, I've seen this video a few times; well OVER AND OVER, if the truth be told. (I think the Youtube 'Flying Doodles' is great). This is no bird. It's a race horse! Carol tells us "it's as fast as a King Air, early model". I like the ...

it's a name-changer

Hi Pilots I confess I've been with (just) a few in my younger days but this "beaut" (N41G) is really something! A real mover with great looks; and a complex character, "to boot". Thick cloud and the occasional thunder-crack, 6000ft IFR, Durham-Tees EGNV to wonderful Orbx Edinburgh EGPH. I'm thinking...
