    GM for Nickles Bakery. Not much time. Enjoy the time I do have to Fly.
  1. These look great. Unfortunately going through some financial hardships currently and am unable to purchase for a while.
  2. That is a good example about cargo smoke. How about having one at each gear lock mechanism and add to the emergency checklist to visually check the lock mechanism on the gear in question. You could at least be able to visually be sure that you are not on fire also by looking down the wing at the engines (or the tail). There could be some practical applications but not taken to extremes.
  3. I was talking with a friend of mine who is involved with this project. It definitely seems to be a revolutionary technology that could be used to create an entire ultra HD earth for Flight Sim. Combine this with some great weather engines and the fantastic developers we have today, we could have ourselves an awesome product.....
  4. I was stationed at Nellis in Las Vegas as a Crew Chief on F-16's. We parked our AC Nose to nose and tail to tail. I can remember recording ambient temps of 160 F in-between running jets where we would have to work. That is HOT!
  5. It used to be that I could check here every day and pick up some valuable info every day or two. But lately it seems that every time I check back mostly the same topics are still here. Is this just me or are others noticing the same?
  6. That is excellent Kyle. The massive difference in the engines are readily apparent. Without looking it up I would imagine that the -8 has a lot better power to weight ratio. Having that reserve power is a very good safety feature. Also the obvious flaps and the wing which looks like it came straight off of a 787.
  7. Please forgive me if the following has already been asked as I have a migraine and am having issues reading all of it. 1. Since the -8 is such a different AC will it be priced as a different product or as the 6 & 700 on the NGX. 2. Can we see some views of the 400 & -8 side by side to compare. 3. Just a Thanks. Been waiting on this one for a while. Due to financial constraints I passed on the T-7 because I knew the Queen was on the way!!!
  8. Kyle: I owe you an apology. I thoroughly read the text in the updates box and it clearly states what you should do. If I had done that the first time all of this could have been avoided. Usually I am good at this sort of stuff. As you have stated before "Read the Manual".
  9. I went back to the original release post and it does say to log in and download the NGX. I will do that now but if that is the way the update is intended why have the loop when you try to use the update link in the site?
  10. Kyle: I tried that way and tried it in Chrome. I have IE11. There is no issues signing in the site knows who I am just does not want to give up the NGX. (Can't say that I blame em)
  11. Kyle: I uninstalled the NGX and went to the PMDG site to get SP1d but when I sign in I get stuck in a continuous loop. When I click on downloads all of the links for NGX updates are for the log in but after you log in and go back it does not change. I can not find a link to get the update. Am I missing something really simple? (Would not be the first time lol.)
  12. Robert: I know you do not read all of the posts. If you did you would see how many times I have asked about the DC-6 in an off topic post. I do not have X-Plane but that is OK. All I can say is it looks up to the standards I would expect from any PMDG product and Thank You.
  13. It just came across the news that speculation is leaning towards the pilots because they found an elaborate simulator!!!! Straws and sadness for the family.
