just finished exporing the new google beta feature -- Google video and watched several several minutes of a REAL freight hauler in the winter. Go to:http://video.google.com/videosearch?q=freight+dog&pl=1&lv=0and start playing to see what winter looks like to a freight hauler in "light" aircraft.If the above link doesn't work, go to:http://video.google.comAnd search on frieght dog to see his collection/documentation.Ignore all weird kid playing.Macromedia Flash required.edited --- Aircraft -- I am sure many of you can id, but I can't -- high wing, two engine -- in the longer videos where he is caught in ice he will take the camera out of the plane and show you the ice and i think the experts can id it then. It kewl collection from his work days in the cold. He even show a 10 below the gauge which on the ground in one of the videos. I think I will stay home inside in front of my simulator and be happy. that looks like it certainly would tighten the pucker with all the ice on the wind screen. ;-) Not 4 me. but if you gota eat and have family ...Regards,BobS

From the external shots, looks like a Turbo Commander690. Nice clips. I enjoyed them. The one landing where his wind screen was covered with ice... that was interesting. Best regards, Jeff

He must have a lot of fun (& adrenaline too) :)The aircraft is always very "slippery" on landing, for me it's the most noticeable difference with FS9 and it's "on the rails" landing.
