Joe Lincoln

Recommended Posts

Just a note that Joe Lincoln passed away this last Sunday, November 30.

A few of the old timers will remember him. Did a lot of work with FS4, FS5, and maybe even earlier.

I believe he wrote the very first real weather program back around the FS4 days.

I can't think of any earlier weather programs. Also did a lot of FS work with Laemming Wheeler,

and a few others, with the FS5 aircraft packages, which were released on CD's as Apollo and also sold from the LINX BBS.

Also the FSWOW scenery design packages, and probably many other programs I can't

remember offhand.

He started the LINX BBS, which was a popular FS BBS in the days before the web took off.

In recent years, he didn't do too much FS work, but still flew it from time to time up to FSX.

Did a lot of ham radio tinkering, restoring of old radios, and such, the past few years. Also

was quite interested in seismic detection and recorders, and had three seismic setups at

his house.

I cannot say I knew him, but will take the time anyway to mark the passing of yet another of the "Old Guard" so to speak. May he rise above and may his remaining family find peace.
