    Tomorrow is our last day. "Trans-Pac Qantas" flight on Saturday. It's been an interesting and fun trip. The work part has been a success, and I'd like to stay here another month! :)

    As normb says, it`s mostly a CofG issue as well as aerodynamic balance. Location of thrust lines,wing spars and the load package affect where you have to put the 'other bits'. Remember that most of the smaller twins are forced into the same package issues... short fuselage length, human sizes, etc. The drawings below show the similarity between an Apache, C340 and KingAir. Seat height has an effect as well and many of the Piper twins are pretty small aircraft (the Aztec was certainly better than the Seneca and Seminole as you sat quite 'high in the saddle'). Common design theory also aimed at placing the pax as near the CofG as possible to minimize the sensations related to pitching/yawing motions so baggage went aft and engines sat forward. A few, such as the Aero Commander...

    Interesting photo Mike. It has to be some version of the IMAM Ro 30 without a cowl ring? This is the only other photo I can find with a 2-bladed prop: http://www.airwar.ru/image/idop/other1/ro30/ro30-5.jpg

    I recently got a very official-looking email from my bank (or so I thought). It was a phishing email, and I sent it to the security section of my bank. NC

    Beginning soon, most likely the first week of next year, I will be volunteering at the Naval Aviation Museum at NAS Pensacola. I only plan on one day per week, as the base is a bit of a drive from my place. I told the museum's volunteer office that I'd like to help out in the library and they were more than pleased to oblige my request:encouragement: So, once I start volunteering and know my way around the library, I should be able to help with some of the projects you talented designer types are needing help with.:very_drunk: NC

    And now all the MAFs are computerized. I visited the AME "A" School here in P'Cola a few weeks ago. The instructor, who gave me a tour of the classrooms, told me NAVAIR is working on an even more updated system. Sure wish they'd had that when I was in. What a frigging nightmare that was, manually filling out that crap. And, of course, if I made mistakes on it, the Maint. Control AZ would let me know, with red ink all over the mistakes! I got pretty good at it though. NC

    I bought Andras Field when it was first released in 2010. Initially they actually offered hangars and houses for "sale" in that scenery. They "auctioned" the rights for a person to personalize scenery objects. At the time, I "bought" a small hangar, and had them put "Navy Chief "at the entrance. So every update from that point on included any/all new personalizations, including signs in front of scenery houses, with the name of the owner. There was a lot of controversy at the time, because (since it was an online auction, with closed bids) some folks were getting the same type scenery object for different pricing, so that process ended. But it is kinda cool to have my own hangar in the scenery, and anyone who buys Andras Field will see it. They (Aerosoft) included some cool features...

    The other good source of info is the excellent "Abandoned and Little-known airports site: http://www.airfields-freeman.com/CA/Airfields_CA_PacificIslands.htm According to Chris Bell, “The seaplane base terminal building remained there until the late 1960s. There was actually a family that lived in the building for several years. The hangar building was moved up to the Airport in the Sky to be used as a hangar facility there. That hangar is still being used today . Simmers on the "dark side" (FSX) do have the Hamilton Cove scenery included in the Golden Age Simulations Dolphin package (payware)

    Just bought this one after a long conversation this morning with a PayPal-lady. I can't say I'm really happy with this add-on. My preview screen turns black, when I try to load another livery of the Hog. After that the plane is almost completly gone in flight at least from the outside view. What's wrong with this addon? Or am I doing something wrong? Cees
