Donny AKA ShalomarFly 2 ROCKS!!!Cool. I just completed my first "assignment". Picking the best screenshots for the PIREP. Always had trouble with limited viz but not on the DVD install. It's always raining in Seattle so I set 200 foot ceiling and .25 viz. I used the king Air. After entering the rain I throttled back simulating a "PY rollback" in the port engine. RPM didn't decrease although autofeather was engaged. For reasons not known even to myself I pulled the port cutoff instead of manually feathering. I forgot instruments fail with the port engine. When I remembered- er... was reminded I scrolled over to the copilot's side, they were inop too. At least before if you lost port you would still have starboard and vice versa. I went around on just the whiskey conpass and the VSI, got a restart but left port at idle properly feathered. On my second attempt I saw runway 34 R and assumed the ils was off centerline. it wasn't. on my third attempt I set down. Didn't see the runway till .30 miles on the ILS/DME. I was less than a thousand under gross on takeoff, probably burned less than 700 pounds on the flight fromm Bella Bella Cambell. Couldn't find the terminal when i landed. It was getting late so I shut down. I'm gonna take the final pics today. Have some nice shots of the "airboss" picking me up in the Decathlon on the leg to CLM to connect with the King Air, that was a VFR flight. LUV the sideslip characteristics.Best Regards, Donny

Jeff my mate!No problemo...Im building myself a new computer table. Fitted my 19" monitor on one of those wall brackets, made myself lots of space for the PC and laptop... forgot about my Saitec Joystick and throttle,(duh!) so re arranging everything. Since I have been using the Yolk at the Flying club, I need space for one of them too. :-) Im in no rush Jeff... did you want me to pick it up? How many miles from North Wales To Texas? :-lol A long Drive huh! ;-) Cheers, Steve.[divalign=center]http://www.wrexhamspace.org/sig.jpg][/divNASA ATX Graduatehttp://www.wrexhamspace.org
