    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...

    Hmm. I just tried it, and they're working for me too. Not sure what I was thinking before!

    My advice is steer clear of it. The software is NOT easy to register/set up, and their customer service is the absolute worst I have ever experienced. NC

    CAUTION: Phantom Sea Story: I spent many years at NAS Lemoore, CA. In the 1980s, F-4s would sometimes stop by for some touch-n-go practice at the nice long runways we had there. In the 1980s, Lemoore was an A-7E base, so Phantoms were unusual, a bit. Touch-n-go practice went on all day at Lemoore, mostly by the Corsair's based there. While they were doing carrier landing practice (FCLP), the pattern was a basic one, take off, climb to pattern altitude, then make a gentle sweeping turn to down wind, etc. These USAF Phantoms would do it different. After touching down, they would take off for the next attempt, but they would combine the climb to pattern altitude with the turn to down wind into one powerful “modified 45 degree offset immelman turn”. It was cool as hell to watch, with all that...

    OK, here's the Plan-G plans for VR-1355. In the zip file are three files: Plan-G native, FSX, and FS9. However, if you have Plan-G, I would recommend using that one. This plan contains "custom waypoints", and I've never been able to get those to show up in the exported FS plans. In other words, you're likely to get a plan with a straight line from the starting airport, KHRI, to the ending airport WA07, which isn't worth much.

    Well, I am certainly not that adept at such things. I do know there are a LOT of objects in this scenery. What I had planned to do (not sure when I'll get to it) is remove several objects from the International Guam Airport side of the airfield (across from what USED to be NAS Agana). I have a feeling the FPS "offending" objects are over there. Either way, I hope to improve the FPS. Makes it difficult to fly, eh? NC

    A little confused here. Was the Mirage originally supposed to be released last December? NC Payware?

    Also wanted to say a couple things about the latest version. Morten Van Der Linden did a magnificent job on this scenery, but it is hard on FPS. For my own tastes, I have removed some of the static objects, i.e. KC-135, AWACS, etc.... as they were not based at NAS Agana; plus I will look to remove some other objects. What I REALLY need to do is configure my video card settings, because I know it can produce more than it currently is. But this IS a beautifully done piece of scenery! NC

    Paul, is the flight plan you created with Plan-g exportable? Maybe upload to the library? Just wondering! Pete

    I suspect you are correct, Tom. It has to be calculating, but how involved are those calculations? A good test would be to get to altitude, stabilize speed, fill up with gas, then write down what ASFD says your TTE, ETE, range, etc. is at that point. Then start the clock and see what the real numbers end up being when you run out. I'd be surprised if the TTE as calculated at “T0” ends up being accurate. Even the “FMC” in the FA-18, the real one, called FPAS (Flight Performance Advisory System) relies on lookup tables stored in the computer, which come from flight test data...
