  1. Has anyone mentioned Ivan Jurcaga's Mig 21? It is one of the best military freeware aircraft not only in fs 9, but also IMO in fsx so far.
  2. the best Learjet out there for sure, especially for those who love retro commercial jet. this is not Convair 880 but it simulates the similar nuance alright
  3. The tired "tireless" http://www.bbc.com/news/world-27157554
  4. Tom. This is correct. While the scientific calculations and analyzed information received may be close to the truth, the investigators are now looking for other possibilities. No, I am not talking about it had been shot down, but the fishermen and residents' accounts who had officially filed their seeing a low aircraft flying on the day MH370 was announced missing in northern Malaysia are being re evaluated.
  5. Malaysian authorities have issued an unsubstantiated claim. No debris, it is completely understandable that many refuse to believe the MH370 "ended" in the Indian Ocean. Especially the families. Not without evidence. One can claim anything
  6. AFAIK, the picture of his 777 sim was taken in 2012
  7. The airline, government and military has delayed, belated and concealed the facts, and attempted to hide something from the families.. no debris, at least without any complete and confirmed sighting, especially for the relatives, let alone recovery of any part of the missing a/c, the mystery of what really happened to MH370 remains unresolved. 1st priority for them is to quickly attain a conclusion so they can pay the compensation and let public forget about this
  8. And suddenly they found it. No debris, no bodies nothing. The families are accusing that he authorities are not being transparent.
  9. Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah has a flight sim setup in his house. So what?? Did George W Bush had Battlefield 3 at his office? this hype thrown by media (and those who actually like it) is just silly. MAS: Everyone has rights to have a hobby. It is not uncommon that our pilots have similar hobbies.
  10. Malaysian Prime Minister said the two corridors are possible. The full script is available
  11. http://www.thestar.com.my/News/Nation/2014/03/15/Najib-No-confirmation-missing-MH370-hijacked/ not confirmed hijacked????????? The plane was deliberately diverted from its original route to a route often used to mid east and europe (wypt igari vampi gival igrex) which can only be done by a skilled and trained individual... and still not confirmed hijacked? cmon Nadjib! What is your definition of hijack? bunch of people wearing masks grenades and AK 47 yelling in the cabin and shouting and chanting religious jargons????
  12. Having logged 5 million flights and 18 millions hours, the 777 ends its reputation in a very tragic way (although there has not been any evidence the aircraft is the culprit). The expedition mobilization on the sea and the air is the biggest since the WWII. Hopefully they come up with anything better than fruitless results. It's been a week now.
  13. The two stolen passports holders are indeed iranian, but the chance of terrorism is slim. It is more related to trafficking. The pilots were the hijackers?? The captain has joined the flag carrier since 81, from his flight sim setup at home, doesn't look like a fundamentalist to me. The copilot was about to get married with an AirAsia female captain. Why would they ruin their dream lives? exclude terrorism, especially involving the crews!? Iran and China share the same political view. And .. http://www.bernama.com/bernama/v7/newsindex.php?id=1022076
  14. The US Official has informed that the flight path was "intentionally" diverted from the planned routes. The search and rescue team is now considering the Indian Ocean. I live not far from Malaysia and I am very sure there are enough radars in Sumatera, let alone in Subang and KLIA. If the security officials, noticeably, Indonesian Air Force or Malaysian are proven to be ignorant, some people WILL get early retirements. A humble RAF radar could spot stukas crossing the Channel 75 years ago! Boeing and Rolls Royce denied this yesterday, suddenly the US stated that MH370 was mysteriously diverted.
  15. As usual, this kind of discussion has gone south. Interesting, but risky. I personally want to see this thread continues thou. The U.S. cannot even afford a replacement for T-38. Phasing out the warthogs are just reasonable. It is indeed fair for, again, the tax payers.
