    The Phantom had Martin Baker type ejection seats, but I think the model installed in Phantoms at that time may not have had zero-zero capability. By that, I mean the aircraft would have to be at a minimum altitude for a successful ejection. The zero-zero ejection systems employed a rocket motor under the seat to give a added "boost", which then propelled the seat high enough for a chute to fully deploy, even if the aircraft was still on the runway, or in this case, just departing the carrier angle deck. There were, of course, limitations on the "attitude" of the aircraft when ejecting, but the zero-zero capability truly saved lives. :encouragement: NC

    My adventures with gauge modifcations has been mostly to copy the xml and bmp files out of the cab file and modify them to what I want (usually just the bmp). Then I put them into a folder and drop that into the gauges folder. Then it's off to FS Panel Studio to put them into whatever I'm dealing with. Yeah, that is a rather long list of gauges to approve on the first start up of the T-33. For the AlphaSim F-80, I just replaced those with other period looking (late 40s ish) gauges from other aircraft. I'll probably do the same to the T-33.

    I was on the Indy when a S-3 took a cold cat shot. All four crew members ejected successfully, and reportedly the first time that had happened. NC

    MAIW did a scenery package for modern day Iwakuni, but don't believe it will work properly in FSX. Something about the coastlines not matching up, and some of the objects being too FPS intensive. I'd like to see Iwakuni done for FSX though. Spent six months there with VAQ-134 Garudas. NC

    Everyone has their own opinion of course, but my vote is the RA-5C Vigilante. Sleek and powerful! Next to the Viggie in this picture is of course the A-7, commonly referred to as the ugliest USN aircraft at that time. I do, however, have a fondness for the old SLUF! The Viggie, for all its faults, really was a great looking aircraft. Had the privlege of working on RA-5Cs for only a brief time at NATC, but they were impressive! NC :encouragement:
