    In case you've ever wondered...

    That would be awkward when wearing a flight suit in a single seat fighter aircraft. * Not so fun trivia: there were actually at least three F-4 aircraft lost to attempts to replace these devices while airborne. Piddle pack incident - restrooms at 28,000ft

    Beaver Backfire ?

    Keep in mind that this temperature is for the air entering the carburetor's venturi. When in the yellow (or lower) there is a severe risk of carburetor icing. When above the gree arc, there is a risk of pre-detonation (backfiring). When at sufficient altitude (I don't remember the precise altitude), full throttle range is possible since it will still be in the safe (green) range.

    Stormtrooper tries out for police force

    I learned that 'trick' many decades ago. In fact, I was stopped once by a nice State Trooper who was going to ticket me... ...for being a traffic hazard. You see, I was driving at precisely the speed limit and while he admitted so, he still felt my being a good citizen was endangering the others who were driving 10 mph over the speed limit. He told me that to be a safer driver, I should keep my speed up with the majority of the other traffic, stay in the center lane if on a three lane interstate, and allow some traffic in the median lane to be just ever so much faster. In other words, let them be the "target" for any enforcement action. I know that on the expressways around Chicago, driving at the speed limit will get you run over or into!

    Who fired first, and deservedly so...

    Okay Granther, I'm not that old... ...although some days I feel like it!

    Hooray for the USS Ward and her crew! Honestly, I knew nothing whatever about this incident, even when actually being taught U.S. and World History back in the mid to late fifties.

    Transatlantic before Charles Lindburgh

    I actually watched the "Live" sinking of the Titanic. It was a bit more interesting than watching paint dry, but between the flare rockets and occasional pistol shots, it manage to keep me awake.
  9. Of course. That's been mentioned more than once in various forums. Just make backup copies outside of P3Dv4.3 and then copy/paste them back into v4.4... Be sure to back up any gauges those aircraft use as well, just in case v.4.4 Content removes them.

    NYPD - a heartwarming tale...

    Um, he didn't propose over the grate. He proposed in Central Park, she accepted, and despite the too-large size, insisted on wearing it. It was hours later when the ring decided to fall off, bounce twice and then swan dive into the grate.

    That is a very good use of PBR (Pabst Blue Ribbon) beer! Puddles of it on the tarmac...

    Prepar3D v4.4 Is Available Now ! 

    If you do not install the "Content" you won't get the updated PBR aircraft and a few new aircraft.
  13. The same thing happened when Textron took controlling interest in Cessna. Suddenly developers began getting C&D letters from Textron's attorneys essentially forcing them to stop production or pay a rather expensive percentage of sales as licensing fees, and to add insult to injury required a $1mil liability policy...

    Wow! Even I did not realize that. Sometimes I think the "filter" is just a bit too tight, as that particular word has many different meanings among the world's English speakers, many of which aren't in any way objectionable... That was actually what I meant to imply with my question. How did he gain his comparison experience?

    A friend of mine once commented to me that PBR "tastes like goat piss." I asked him why in heaven's name would he drink goat piss anyway?
