    An excellent choice!

    I look forward to seeing the finished project.

    Yes, modern times indeed!

    Many times Iíve growled at the TV, ďThatís not a strobe!Ē as some clueless narrator refers to a beacon or just a light that just sits there glowing motionless as a strobe.

    HmmmmmÖ

    Did they have strobe lights back in the days when the B-47 was in service?

    I donít know when they came in, but Iím suspicious that they came in that early. I was just a kid in those...

    That may confirm what Iíd suspected, that only the Boeing plane had the fancy colors and the two USAF planes used in testing didnít get the stripes. The Habermehl & Hopkins book has nice color...

    Ok, I dug out my references and at least some of the testing was done at Eglin. So probably all of it was.

    Thereís a photo of the Boeing crew posed in front of the striped bird and the photo says...

    The drones were based at Eglin AFB in Florida.

    I donít know about the bomb toss plane. Possibly Edwards but thatís a guess. Possibly Elgin. Maybe Edwards because thatís the test center, or...

    BTW, the air base the planes were based at is given in the Description section of the UI entries in the aircraft.cfg file, except for a few that I forgot to put it in there.

    Sorry sbob! No insult intended in my earlier post. Autocorrect changed sbob to slob.

    When I wrote this post it tried to turn it into snob.

    I hate this infernal device!

    Hereís a suggestion. There are flying tips (not all the same as those slob posted) in the kneeboard reference (or is it the checklist - I still canít access my FS stuff to check.) You might want to...

    Great report!

    I havenít flown the B-47 so I was really pleased to read your pilot report.

    Iíve never flown anything nearly as big or complicated as the Ď47.

    Actually Iíve never had much time...

    My stuff is mostly even more ancient than that!

    Thanks Dave.

    I would try Open Office before Iíd buy a new version of Office. But the replies I got tell me that versions older than mine work in Win10, except for Outlook. I had to get a newer...

    Iíve used Shiny quite often, not just to make models reflective but to adjust specular gloss. It wouldnít run in Win7, but it turned out to be the only program I tried that worked in the XP virtual...

    Yes, and thatís the plan.

    It appears that I will have little need for W7 for FS work, but Iím pretty sure that Iíll need it for some of my older non-FS stuff.
