Cosford 2016

Recommended Posts

Sadly not Bill. Just a snails-pace 250kts. But we do get to it from a standing start in around 40 seconds. :Big Grin:

 

Not sure there will be a FSL desk. I'm not representing them of course. I'll be on the NWFSG stand. We're just a group of enthusiasts.

 

Is there anyone who hasn't upset Papa Tango? Or anyone who he hasn't upset? :Big Grin:  There's a name from the past and the only person who tried to copyright aircraft liveries in FS.

 

I'd forgotten you fly (flew) with a keyboard. I dabbled for a year or two and it was pretty hard not to mention slightly unrealistic! :lol:

I was spending most of my FS5.1 time (or was it FS98 ?) on programming (with MASM, FSASM and BGLComp) then. I didn't like having to remove the yoke to check on my latest 'object'. So I got familiar with just using the keyboard.

 

Still use it now occasionally, but it's less hassle with the T16000 on my desk....it is ideal for the A320-X and my 'other' two 'buses from Aerosoft.

 

I do occasionally install the CH Yoke for the NGX and the Cherokee 180, but the 'bus, and the JF T1 Hawk are my favourites in P3d.

 

.. and the 'new' 'bus for P3d is expected shortly.... :Whistle: 

 

 

Regards

Bill

Thanks Phil. Nice to meet you too. Good journey back up the M6. Got home before the footie finished. Busy but very enjoyable day. Tempted to do it all again next year.

 

Hope you got home okay Bill. Nice seeing you again.

It was great to see a few of you guys at the show, but I missed making contact with yourself, Phil :sad:

Phil..

Good to meet you Ray and Bill.  Hope you got home ok.

Thanks Phil. Nice to meet you too. It wasn't ideal conditions for a comfortable conversation under those noisy Comet's flaps. :P Delighted to meet you.

 

 

I am rather disappointed to find at these gatherings that most of the simmers that I meet have never heard of Avsim. I often have to correct their lack of knowledge.... :wink:

Ray..

Hope you got home okay Bill. Nice seeing you again.


Same here. Probably see you again next year.
But I'll be travelling by train I suspect.

I had a pleasant chat with Dave Barrington. It was interesting to be able to chat with a RW 737 driver. I saw you later deep in conversation with him. Did you get a few tips ?

You were right - the M6 wasn't as bad, but was still bad...
..Stumbled through the door at 1600.

 

 

I was also fortunate to be able to chat with Mark from Just Flight re their Hawk T1. Rich was a mite busy, I wanted to thank them both for their efforts re the aircraft. :Applause:

 

I have wanted a good Hawk for P3d for some time. It has always been my 'dream' aircraft for my local airfield scenery.

Regards
Bill

It was nice to meet you, Bill. Sorry that we never got the chance to talk in more depth. I also had a brief encounter with Erich B!

Glad to hear you got home safe Bill. Train is a decent option as Cosford station is right outside the airfield. I must have been lucky as I got home in 1hr 25m - even quicker than going down. M6 was fine but I got off at J17 (Sandbach).

 

We're so lucky to have these shows where so many people can attend without having to travel vast distances. Cosford is ideal being in the middle of the country. Bit sad so few you spoke to are aware of AvSim. :sad:  Maybe they should have some representation there?

 

I always enjoy seeing old faces and meeting new ones. I was a bit surprised Christopher didn't return for more time with Concorde. Too many other distractions I guess! :P

 

I had a good chat with Dave Barrington who lives in Congleton and may well come up to Heald Green for the NWFSG monthly meetings especially as one of his former first officers was also there yesterday and also attends our meetings. No tips on flying a 737 I'm afraid but he did a commendable job landing Concorde at Manchester.

 

Enjoy your Hawk in P3D. Have you heard there is to be a 64-bit version? No time-scale I'm afraid.

 

Roll on next year where I hope to meet more AvSim members. :Big Grin:

Sorry for not speaking to you more yesterday, Ray. I did come back two or three times, but you were deep in conversation with various people, and I didn't want to butt in. I was there when you were talking to (I think) someone from FS Labs.

I come from Yorkshire by train, two changes, but it's almost as fast as the AA-estimated car journey time without hold-ups. There is a very efficient shuttle bus to and from the station. So train every time.

Fair enough Christopher, it was a very busy day. Hopefully next year!

 

Yes, that was Andrew Wilson, one of the main men at FS Labs.

Thanks Petraeus.

 

I'll have to remember that for next time.

Good to finally meet you Christopher!  Unfortunately Ray was deep into flying the Concorde with a captive audience so, so didn;t have the opportunity to say hi.

It was good to meet you, Erich. We should have stopped for a proper chat, but I think that we were both on our way to opposite destinations in the hangar at that time!

Hi Kevin,

 

Just spoke to Stewart and we are certainly looking forward to seeing you and Chris again next year (considering drinks are already fully catered for hehe). I consumed two more pints than I would normally (zero), so I hope I didn't get too boisterous!

I would love to meet up again next year. It was a real pleasure meeting you and Stewart, and seeing Kevin again. In fact, I would like to be able to stay for two nights next year, so that Kevin can give his credit card a good workout :P

Yes, you were trying to find someone you hadn't met before and I was trying to find someone I had lost. Sounds like a bad dating show. :lol:

 

If ever I'm up in Cumbria, which may be sooner than later, I will give you a shout!
