  1. Check the decal. Note however that during flaps 30 & 40 a warning buzzer will be heard. Generally I wait until 180 IAS until extending the gear:
  2. I'm glad to hear you got it sorted out, because I seriously had no clue!

    Not about flight simming...

    This is one of my favorite "Scottish style" war marches: Warhammer - March of Cambreadth (Heather Alexander)

    Froogle's take on FSW and possible impact on P3D

    Ray, that's not entirely accurate. Some of us developers do have a limited view of L-M's thinking. At least more than the general public.
  5. Several years ago I was "caught" while parking (or unparking?) my 1995 Mercury Grand Marquis out of the alley facing garage here in Hammond, Indiana. When I saw that my first thought was "Well darn, there goes any nude sunbathing..."
  6. One of the best features of FSX:SE is that the Steam platform will "auto-repair" problems when asked to do so.

    Aerosoft future projects

    No kidding Dave! It's very difficult to work with a constantly moving target platform such as P3D.

    PA-24 Fatal Crash caught on traffic camera

    While agree with you that "error" is likely far too generous, I didn't want to speak ill of the deceased pilot by using harsher verbiage. As Ken Ramage said "...the six-seater Piper plane typically cannot hold the weight of six grown adults and could have thrown off the plane's center of gravity." And this without considering any of the luggage which may have added 200 to 300 lbs. of additional, improperly distributed weight.
  9. Although this crash took place last month, video footage of the final moments was just released by the Scottsdale Police. In this case it would appear to be pilot error, as there were six adults with their luggage in that little aircraft... http://www.azfamily.com/story/38099498/video-scottsdale-traffic-cam-captures-plane-crash-on-tpc-golf-course?autostart=true
  10. You may be correct Kevin. There's so few intact bits among the wreckage, it may be very difficult for the NTSB to make any determination.
  11. Wow, that security cam footage is pretty clear alright. It's a shame that there isn't any video of the actual climb out, but given what can be seen it may have stalled, then rolled over to port and became a lawn dart. May the Lord give comfort to the victim's families. RIP airmen!
  12. A Puerto Rican National Guard C-130 with 9 souls aboard crashed about an hour ago during a training mission, killing 2 of the crew. The aircraft is a total loss. http://www.wbtv.com/story/38094821/witnesses-report-seeing-plane-go-down-near-gulfstream-rd-hwy-21-in-port-wentworth

    Avsim and why Mods are such a God send

    I was just yanking Charlie's chain (how to avoid possibly overzealous mods). John, I am one of those who try my very best to make any needed 'chastisement' as soft and painless as possible, by treating such times as a "teachable moment." I can count the number of folks I've had to be severe to the point of banning on one finger...
  14. Apparently it has been around for several decades, but was only recently declassified by DARPA. I was unaware of it so I thank you for the linked video. Now I have a reference from which I can learn more about the subject. https://www.americanelements.com/aluminum-oxynitride-12633-97-5

    Airbus vs boeing flight deck

    Those two were designed long before "ergonomic" entered the lexicon and were apparently engineered by a committee of folks who missed most of the "team meetings." "OMG, we must tack on this fram-widget somewhere!" It reminds me of how Harley-Davidson motorcycles are apparently built. <running fast and ducking flying bricks>
