777 Compressor Stall

Interesting video by a 777 pilot who explains what happened on Philippine 113 and how the crews have to prepare for this sort of thing. He also explains why the tires didn't blow on landing.

Re: Collings Foundation B-17G Crash

Interesting video by an Airline Pilot regarding the B-17 crash. Last half of video explains the many procedures and regulations they must follow give rides in these aircraft.

Re: Should A2A release official trainers even if not "complete" by our standard?

I vote YES. Then I would have the option to purchase or not. If people are holding out for Accusim fine, but you need the money. It's a business decision.

Re: Reinstall FSX by using DeLuxe edition

I've been having the same problem for about 5 months. Microsoft won't let me activate, and they have stopped all support.
