    Terry, That's amazing! It seems like a big, expensive beer run. If you liked to drink, the Navy was the place to do it, so it seems. :-)

    Aw shucks guys! :-) I assure you that the models would be just clay without the efforts of the team to bring them to life. We are fortunate to have like-minded designers and artists around to keep us happy in our hobby. :-) Thank you for expressing your feelings toward these efforts; I assure you the comments are essential to keep the fires burning brightly. We have the Harpoons, Lodestars and Ventura modeling done or mostly done, and in the queue for attention. Once we get the Harpoons out, I will start on the A-20 Havoc.

    Working on the Captain's Quarters trying to get it furnished with a lot yet to do, and added to the lower deck big room. Lots of little stuff here and there.

    Landing at 300 RVR you don't even get to see any approach lights. Most Cat IIIB landings are autolands. Some Cat II setups can be hand flown using a HUD. Many Asian airlines use autoland as standard practice. This was one of the reasons for the Asiana Crash at SFO, for some carriers a visual approach is truly an emergency procedure. A high standard of airmanship is required, more so as one doesn't get many cycles. The Boeing system does a really good job of flying the airplane and is actually a great way to learn how the plane should be landed. It takes the amount of crosswind into account and makes several corrections in bank and crab making a final adjustment in the flare. T

    Thank you Mike! Unfortunately due to the weather delay my brother-in-law had to leave early and he missed the flight, but we intend to do it again somewhere next year! Hopefully with some better weather that time, so the photos will look more like this: We've seen this Antonov many times in the past at shows or at the Aviodrome and it was great to do a short flight with 'Annushka'!

    That is a beautiful Cat! Love her colors. We have two cats, a polydactyl (26 toes) Siamese, and a long-haired Tabby. Is that an African Grey? My wife would love to have the parrots as well. LOL

    Autoland uses either two or three coupled autopilots. The three autopilot system is called fail active, if one errors, the other two can continue. The ILS system must be CAT II-III certified and the critical interference area must be sterile. At a pre determined altitude (Radar alt) a flair maneuver is begun and throttles move to idle. The pilots are monitoring the instrumentation for flags or abnormal performance. In the 747 all we needed at a suitable airport was a 300 ft RVR. Flying one of those is slightly puckering as you never do see anything at all till the nose comes down and you get a short range view of some center line lights. Cheers: T

    There are plenty of mods for AC already, check the forums at their site. But the soundsystem has changed in the RC1 release so some mods do not have working sounds at the moment. This Corvette is great piece of work:

    Hey Rob, heb je al gezien dat de Aeroplane Monthly een artikel heeft over de Uiver?
    Waarschijnlijk ligt het blad volgende week wel in de winkels.


  5. OK, ik zie 't wel.
    Wat voor concert??
    En de Uiver had pech?

    Hey Rob, foto's van de open dagen komen er hopelijk vanmiddag aan; ik heb ook nog even een concertje vanavond dus niet veel tijd om 1350 foto's uit te zoeken. Show viel wat tegen, aangezien het meeste klassieke spul (Inlcusief de Uiver!) met pech aan de grond stonden. Het weer viel ook wat tegen, vooral de eerste dag. Toch nog flink verbrand, maar ja..
