    So awesome in every respect! :encouragement: I do not have fond memories of life onboard a carrier, but it is fun to "relive" being on one. I can almost smell the JP-5 (which was ever present in the air, and you could taste it in the drinking water). I remember a klaxon type horn would be sounded every time a elevator was about to move up or down. NC

    I have not flown multiplayer in so long, I would have to refamiliarize myself with it. But I remember being able to see other players aircraft animations, but never gave any thought to the sound of their engines. Interesting question. NC:applause:

    I did not know, or had forgotten (if you already told me) that you knew one of those pilots. So awful. NC

    When flying online with other players, they pull up and park next to me and shut down their engine. But from my perspective, their engine is still running. Same the other way around: I shut off my engine but the other players still see and hear my engine running. Is there some setting to account for this someplace? I haven't been able to locate one so far.

    We flew on up to Rockhampton via Lady Elliot Island. Great flight with some interesting scenery and stuff enroute. (HMS Victory does seem to get around a bit)

    Yep, I know. And I won't be going back for a visit. My memories will remain of Cecil Field as it was, a Master Jet Base. :encouragement: NC

    Back when I worked on them at Pax River, I occasionally removed seat buckets (by myself)...totally against regs. But at the time we did a LOT of maintenance that would be a BIG no-no now!! The aircond turbine change on Phantoms was a real pain, if memory serves me correctly. NC

    Agree with you about Whidbey. Am hoping if and when it IS done that the time period goes back to the 1970s and not current. NC

    Oh, you got THAT right!!! I was so surprised when P-Woogey and Scott Pappy contacted me about the project. Took me by complete, but welcomed surprise. Won't come as a shock to most, am sure, but I have (and keep collecting) a file of NAS Cecil Field material. Not easy to get, as (unlike Alameda) NAS Cecil Field does not have a museum, or a archived history. And even more of a surprise to me is that the Naval Aviation Museum, here in Pensacola where I live, has zippydoodah on Cecil Field :banghead: NC

    We left Warwick after the "Egg Throwing Incident Reenactment" held at the railway station. We headed northeast towards the mountains of the Main Range and Brisbane. After crossing the ridge line, we decided to pay a short visit to RAAF Amberley (YAMB), home of the RAAF Super Hornets. I did a quick touch and go while Willy buzzed the tower, Top Gun fashion, in his black CDM. We flew over the city of Brisbane, then turned north, following the coast to Maryborough (YMYB). The Maryborough airport was in operation in WW-II, and some of the buildings here date to that time. These building are listed on the Queensland Heritage Register for this reason. Kodaks: 1) Touch-n-Go, Amberley. You can just see Willy crossing the runway in his Tom Cruise act. 2) Over Brisbane International. 3) The port of...

    PRB and I flew on up north of Brisbin to Marybourough. Nice flight, buzzed the tower at Amberly a couple of times. I think the Officer in Charge at the tower choked on his Fosters when a black CDM blew about 50ft from the tower in a high bank. I was thinking I was gonna hit it myself at the last second there, but somehow managed to miss it.

    Also, the A-7 squadrons did not paint insignias on hangar doors like the S-3s, but instead would paint them over squadron entrances on the parking lot side of their hangars. NC

    They are looking at answers to that very question. As for the other side of the base, when A-7s were parked on the flightline, their wings were folded. I too, had questioned that (and I was in two Corsair II squadrons!). But after posting a question about this on FB, other vets reminded me. Aircraft would taxi out from their parking spots, then spread wings. Squadron maintenance division would fold wings sometimes when space was needed in the hangar ashore, and definitely when at sea. Wing locks were always installed with folded wings on SLUFs. A-7s wings would unfold without the locks. :encouragement: NC

    P-Woogey Martin and Scott Pappy are hard at work, creating a FSX/P3D native version of NAS Cecil Field, FL. I have looked forward to this, ever since John Stinstrom's FS9 version. Here are some teaser screenshots, and will post more.:encouragement: NC
