    I haven't vanished, just getting ready for the summer job and getting new staff trained. In the meantime been flying the Lodestar in (mostly) non-destructive testing of Mr. Sperry's autopilot. Yes, the Sperry can be nice and it will work but pilots will have to be aware it's not a K-Tel "set it and forget it" device. It can control heading and pitch but is not intended as more than a 'relief pilot during cruise' to reduce the need for hand-flying for long periods. Particularly, with the trim changes associated with those big Fowler flaps, letting "George" fly the airplane on approach might produce some unpleasant moments! It'll be fine to get you to final approach but after that you'd best be off auto and have a hand/mouse close to the trim wheel/button. ('Realistic' is a word that comes...

    While stationed at NAS Lemoore, we would periodically have to FOD walk the runways which are 13,500 feet long (each). There were no aircraft displays though... Sounds like fun.

    No, it's not a story about security breaches and stowaways... CYYC (Calgary International) is nearing completion of the new runway (17L/35R) http://www.yyc.com/en-us/calgaryairportauthority/projectsprograms/runwaydevelopmentproject.aspx and is holding a couple of events for the public. http://www.yyc.com/News/tabid/91/articleType/ArticleView/articleId/163/language/en-US/The-Calgary-Airport-Authority-Announces-Plans-for-Celebrations-on-Canadas-Longest-Runway.aspx

    The "fix" involves the replacement of a light pole .bgl file, and accompanying textures. The fix does help, but I went through the files and deleted a lot of objects that were not important to me. The combination of the "fix" on Avsim, plus the deletions I made, DID improve the FPS! NC

    Don't use IE11?? great idea! Oh.. did you mean don't use non-standard characters? But.. but... so many of the characters around here are non-standard, or at least 'unusual'. OK.. got it.. stick to US English keyboard characters.. gotcha! :biggrin-new:

    That is correct Huub. :very_drunk: It could also be a SNCAC NC.510 as it was built in 1938 after the nationalization. Over to you.

    We've been having some issues here that cause some threads to be “un-viewable” in IE 11. The problem occurs when a thread title contains a “non-standard/non US English” character, such as the accent atop some letters, common in Europe. If these characters are part of the thread title, and you're using IE 11, you will receive an error message from the forum software saying there is no such thread. So, for now, don't do that, thanks! :)

    Thanks Joe. I will try that. I am wondering though, if I would even see any difference, since I am running 16gb of RAM? NC

    Odds are not good for this sort of event, but some are survivable- "Incidences of people sneaking onto planes aren't as uncommon as you might think. Since 1996, there have been 105 stowaways on 94 flights worldwide, according to the Federal Aviation Administration in an e-mail to USA TODAY Network. More than 76% of those attempts resulted in deaths, the FAA says." http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/usanow/2014/04/21/stowaway-planes-hawaii/7957357/

    Is "Ready Boost" something that Windows (in my case, Windows 7 64 bit) automatically does, when a flash drive is inserted? Must not be, because my system has never done this. Need to configure manually? Or is it triggered automatically by certain flash drives? :confused: NC
