    Keep in mind that the FS flight planner will usually give you about 3000ft above safe altitude. Nice to know in mountainous areas.

    I should've added the paragraph from Facebook about it. Apparently it really happened. There was a link to the site where the aircraft is or was for sale. Description included "needs new props!"

    Hmm... I remain only 50% convinced this wasn't an RC plane. If the props struck the ground, the engines would have been wasted. The Aerostar is a mid-wing plane though... Did this accident get reported anywhere else besides this guy's video?

    Moses, I've fiddled with the old Snapper for the past couple of nights and decided that had to be something that would take more than 3 screenshots. Probably just my machine....

    On the adding scenery thing. Here's a screenshot with the area to right click after clicking OK circled in red.

    Hey Willy, the original Snapper seems to work okay for both FS9 and FSX under 8.1. My issue with it is trying to dial in the right resolution to match your screen, otherwise it will crop a portion out.

    Forgot one. I'd installed the SOH A-26 slow start gauge into the C-46. Apparently there's something in there that 8.1 don't like as I was getting a bunch of error messages about it. And the wind info gauge doesn't work either. Sigh...

    I've just started down this path having finally retired my old XP64 machine. A few things that I've picked up so far while they are fresh on my mind as 8.1 is sure different from XP. Keep in mind that I have a 500g portable HD that I use to keep copies of important stuff like FS on. And I filled it up with stuff from my old rig that I wanted on the new one. Up to now, I've always been able to change the default flight to whatever aircraft I want and what airport I want. For some reason, now it appears that unless it's the default running Cessna at Seattle flight, FS9 just won't start. Okay, I can live with that. The first time I flew FS9 in 8.1, I'd just swapped in some aircraft, the whole gauges and effects folder from my backups. Worked fine if default ugly. So the next...

    Sorry about not having any screenshots the past few nights. Seems my old screenshot program and Win 8.1 don't want to play nice together. On the hunt for a new one. On another front, I got to missing the "Whale" and as we are in New England whaling territory, I figured it was time to go back to it as seen in Taco's pics above. Santa Fe, All The Way!

    Just finished this one. I initially put it down after about a quarter way through. The author writes with a sarcastic style that makes it look like he has an “ax to grind” against Pan Am. The book is about Pan Am's slow decline, starting in the 1970s, until they ceased to exist in the 1990s. The title, “skygods”, is how he refers to the “old timers” at Pan Am, the “Masters of Ocean Flying Boats” who were held up as, well, you get it the idea. But by the jet age they were also, in the author's opinion, “old curmudgeons” who didn't “get” the idea of crew coordination, and wouldn't tolerate any dissenting opinions, or even comments, from co-pilots. Ok, this was true, in some cases... But last week I had nothing to read so I picked it back up and finished it. It was actually quite good....
