  1. A quick jaunt in the Boeing B17F Flying Fortress which is notable for being the first US heavy bomber to complete 25 missions over Europe during WW2 - Hell's Angels of the 303rd BG... Taxying out and taking off from Woodford: Flying over my house: Off for a jaunt over Derbyshire:
  2. Hey Everybody, Just a few more quick shots that i found from a Wednesday night flight that i done to test a few things out in P3D, I think i departed out of Shoreham,EGKA if my memory serves me well ha-ha. These shots have been completely over edited but to a degree i quite liked the outcome of them. Still getting to grips with a few toys in Photoshop. Anyways i hope you like them and i will start uploading some new fresh material in the very near future. :smile: Good Evening to all and have a good one! Happy Flying! :smile:
  3. So after about 16 months out of the hanger I have decided to get back into the cockpit and do some flying. I am still in awe that this website is still going strong as I have not really followed it much since then. I look forward to learning and maybe relearning what I forgot about flying. Driving a truck for a living is a real time taker and as such the time away from flying. Now that I have offically retired and can spend more time I will be doing more flying.
  4. I constantly see post from simmers who rave about the night environment in X-Plane. I mostly agree with them as takeoff and landing in the cover of darkness is a true pleasure in the sim. I can't compare the experience to FSX or P3D because I don't remember doing much flying at night with them, I mostly avoided it. However, with XP I often will bid on flights that take me into the night. So, I guess that's a testament to the sims features. But.... While takeoff and landing are great , cruise in darkness in X-Plane is kinda wacky! First, the issue with "moonshine" in beta is bothersome enough (I'm thinking they will fix that). The more irksome issue is the numerous airports in sight that shine bright regardless of distance, cloud cover and surrounding area. It's almost like the runway lights are the only lights you see for miles in every direction! I know some of us need that security if a nearby airport "just in case" but, this is and looks crazy! I'm surprised by this because the team at LR have done a fantastic job with the rest of the sim My questions are; Is there a way to turn down distant runway lights in the settings? Or, is there a mod/plug-in that addresses the concern? Finally, I haven't seen other comments on this issue so, is it just me?
  5. As per the title, here's the first of a little series of videos I decided to make explaining how to fly an aeroplane. I doubt any regulars here on Avsim will need to watch this first one, but it might be of use to people new to flying simulated aeroplanes (or real ones) who sometimes come to Avsim for help. Anyway, hope you like it:
  6. The continuing adventures of 'Bouncing Brenda' on her third mission deep into Germany, when she encounters vicious flak over Lubeck which takes out a B17 in the low squadron with a direct hit to the starboard wing. We count seven 'chutes appearing from her before she disappears into the low clouds. Soon after, twelve bf109Gs come in for an evil head on pass with devastating results, but it doesn't end well for one of them as it collides with another Fortress in the low squadron as the rest of the formation's gunners blaze away, scoring several hits on the remaining bandits, before they can swing around for another pass... As much as I love the B17, and indeed the 109, I certainly don't envy the real guys who flew those things, it must have been horrific to see friends go in a matter of seconds. Some pics... Flak over Lubeck takes out a 17, whilst most others in the formation also take damage, but we see at least seven chutes blossom out from her as she goes down. Our crew understandably forget intercom discipline and yell encouragement for their friends to bail out: The remote Bendix chin turret, operated by the bombardier, blazes away at the 109s: External view of those fighters coming in from 1 o'clock low at a closing speed of probably more than 500 mph. You can see that we've already taken some flak hits prior to their attack, and we've still got a long way to go to reach the target: The inevitable result of four 109s in close formation coming through the tight formation of the Fortresses, as one collides with another unlucky 17. No 'chutes from this one as she comes apart, narrowly missing another Fortress alongside, but there's no time to dwell on losses, those fighters will be coming in again:
  7. I've had this plane several months and find I just can't keep it stable in flight. Trimming for level flight, take my eyes off for a second only to find the plane in a climb or steep dive. I have the CH Eclipse yoke and CH pedals. What am I doing wrong here? Criticisms accepted without malice. I think if real flying were this difficult no one would do it.
