    PRB replied to a thread Run and Roam the Runway in The NewsHawks
    While stationed at NAS Lemoore, we would periodically have to FOD walk the runways which are 13,500 feet long (each). There were no aircraft displays though... Sounds like fun.

    That is correct Huub. :very_drunk: It could also be a SNCAC NC.510 as it was built in 1938 after the nationalization. Over to you.

    We've been having some issues here that cause some threads to be “un-viewable” in IE 11. The problem occurs when a thread title contains a “non-standard/non US English” character, such as the accent atop some letters, common in Europe. If these characters are part of the thread title, and you're using IE 11, you will receive an error message from the forum software saying there is no such thread. So, for now, don't do that, thanks! :)

    Ain't that the truth! Not enjoying this at all. Windows 8.1 is pushing my patience. (Have to stay ahead of the curve I guess). Can't pass up the one and only De Havilland DH.72.:triumphant:

    Ran the test again, without time compression, and this time the predicted TTE of 3:50 correlated perfectly with the elapsed timer. So, apparently, there is relativistic time strangeness in FS! :)

    Did a test to see how accurate FS's range and TTE calculations are at the start of a run with full tanks. The results were surprising, but not where I expected: Test Aircraft: Just Flight A6M2 Test Altitude: 10,000 FT Predicted at T0 (full) TTE: 3:47 RNG: 1054 FF: 67.71879

    You can see my system in my sig line below. It runs FSX very well, locked at 30 FPS with most scenery sliders far to the right. I do not overclock, because I paid a lot of money for this computer and I don't really want to destroy it. I know, many people overclock with no ill-effects, and more power to them, but I'll pass just the same. Got enough speed anyway so why push it?

    Hey all, I would normally string this along a bit further but I'm in the middle of setting up a new pc (argh!). Will be out of pocket some the next couple of days.

    Hi Pete, No, I didn't setup an A-7 profile in Plan-G. There are some setup things to do to get Plan-G to connect to the sim. Here's how mine is setup (see pic). The manual says that for FS9 you should use FSUIPC, but mine works for both sims as shown. The Plan-G manual covers all this, but it's sprinkled around in different parts of the PDF file.

    This one took to the skies about a year before WWII ended. It was a rework of a very common civil tourer.

    Ran the course in the RAZBAM A-7E. Moocho fun. As you can see I put some green bombs on board for good screen shots. And a couple HARM just in case the EA-6Bs don't show up... One fun thing I got to do in my civilian life was review the aircrew courseware that the navy produced. Among those was lessons on low level flights, and how to keep your head properly focused while flying very fast and very low. There's a lot they teach you, including how to prioritize your limited amount of brain cells between flying, navigating, communicating, etc. Very interesting stuff. One of the things I always remembered was this “rule of thumb” sort of thing when approaching two ridge lines, one of which is close to you, while the other is far away. It seems simple, but when traveling at 500 knots 500 feet...

    Hi Mike , Just a quick question . Thanks for a fantastic event and it is quite a challenge Harv and I were being a little naughty and discussion routes , wildcards etc and noticed Flying Bull went for the Canaries we both thought " nice move but missing Africa will mean needing to hit an extra commercial in South America " . Could be a good move , difficult to tell , but I do not see the extra Commercial hit , only see 10 hit . It`s not a complaint , just an observation and maybe an oversight or mis-understanding of the rules , but I definately ruled out tenerife because it`s not a required commercial and would need an extra south america leg to compensate the short cut . Please don`t take as a complaint but as an observation and a quick hop to SUMU and back should fullfill the requirement Once again a fantastic event and not competitive , just great to see so many friends again . Cheers Mike Happy Flying
