  1. Would you have done it? I would like to think so. Like any good pilot he had his own personal minimums but from the story one could tell he really wanted to help. Good on him. This was a great story Frank, thanks for bringing it to us.

  2. The tragic flight events of N79NX were recreated with Flight Simulator and the National Transportation Safety Board Preliminary Report to help understand what went wrong on February 13, 2022. There are many possible reasons that led to the loss of control in this airplane. Hopefully, the final report from the NTSB will shed light on the exact cause of this accident. Video replaced with the above.

  4. Here's a topical one for you all: A man with suspected Corona virus is lying in a hospital bed with a face mask on waiting to be seen. A trainee nurse comes to give the man a bed bath. The man asks “Are my testicles black?" The nurse replies “I'm here to give you a bed bath" The man asks again slightly more agitated this time “Ok, but can you look to see if my testicles are black?” The nurse replies “Sir I'm only supposed to give you a bed bath upper body and feet" The man rather breathless this time manages to ask one more time, “Please, are my testicles bla

  5. Can't go wrong with three engines. You never disappoint Frank, thanks for bringing this information into my brain. One of my favorite movies as a ten year old kid was Where Eagles Dare(1968) with Clint Eastwood, I think my first blip of wanting to fly was watching the Ju-52 flying in the snow covered mountains during the closing credits. In Panavision no less. That plane, I believe was the same one that crashed in Switzerland in 2018. As a side note, the movie used T-6's for German fighters. When will they stop lying to us kids.

  6. Come see how the Allies, mainly the USA, supplied China to fight the invading Japanese in WW2. The airlift supply route involved hazardous flying over the SE tail-end of the Himalayas, hence the name "The Hump". The job was done but not without significant loss of personnel and aircraft. At the time, it was the largest airlift operation in history. Enjoy not only the history but also the flying and scenery as well. Hope you do enjoy. Cheers.

  7. If they don't like anything flight sim related than why watch the videos or even talk about them. Sounds like they have the problem and at the least deserve this...

  8. When I woke this morning, my wife was standing in the kitchen looking sexy in her nightie, and preparing my usual soft-boiled eggs and toast for breakfast. As I walked in she turned to me and said "You've got to make love to me this very moment!" We went at it, there and then on the kitchen table. Afterwards she said "Thanks" pulled down her nightie and returned to the stove. "How come you're so horny this morning" I said. "I'm not" she replied "The egg timer's broken".

  10. Very enjoyable Frank, love the sound of those radials! Talking of tyre type radials, I think I heard seven squeals on landing! My only negative comment is please can you change the music? It reminds me of the hours I have spent on hold waiting to get through to my doctor's surgery on the phone

  11. Come join me in the recently updated Spitfire to Narvik in remote North Norway and see how the Allies beat Germany, for the fist time, in 1940, albeit only for a short time. Learn how the Battle of Norway/Narvik led to so many other military firsts. Hope you enjoy. Cheers.

  12. It was grandmother's 100 th birthday party and everyone was trying to make her comfortable and taking good care of her. Suddenly granny tilted to the left and someone immediately propped a pillow. Again after sometime she tilted to the right and the worried relatives propped her up with a pillow. Right enough after sometime she again tilted in front of her and a kind soul propped her up and tied her to the chair. Her nephew arrived and asked how she was and how everyone was treating her. Granny whispered in his ear ,"The buggers won't let me fart ".

  13. Just adding a bit more information that may help other potential purchasers now that I have my new Defiant. As Mutley stated, the build quality is excellent with very little flex anywhere. The entire case (including underneath) appears to be metal so not sure where the plastic comes in unless it is the keys. The (metal) keyboard is comfortable to use although I think the clicks on the pad could be a little more defined. Personal preference. They work OK and I invariably use a mouse, anyway. The pad itself feels fine. My only gripe so far is the poor volume on the speakers.

  14. Join me in a DC-3 to visit Heritage-Listed Felts Field in Washington State, USA. What a beaut old airfield with still existing heritage buildings & structures!

  15. Washington State has a beautiful landscape, thanks for the tour Frank. Enjoyed the guitar music as it was a nice change of pace from the last stuff. I am enjoying these heritage tours and as an American it surprises me how little I know of these historical places, I think it's time for some book learning. Please keep them coming and thanks.

  16. A young woman started work in the small English village chemist shop. She was very shy about having to sell condoms to the public. The Chemist was going on holiday for a couple of days, and asked if she would be willing to run the shop on her own. She had to confide in him her worries about selling condoms. "Look" said the Chemist. "My regular customers don't ask for condoms; they ask for either:- a No 310 (small); or a No 320 (medium) or a No 330 (large). The word condom is never mentioned" The first day was fine, but on the second day a large black guy came into the shop,

  17. Come visit the locations in the USA & UK where the famous WW2 American P-51 Mustang fighter aircraft was made & first flew. See how USA North American + UK Rolls Royce + UK Packard = P-51 Mustang. See why the P-51D version was the most famous of all the Mustang's many versions. Fly in a P-51 Mustang in MSFS. Hope you enjoy. Cheers.

  18. Follow a pilot's story, in his own words, about undertaking a life-saving Medevac flight in below marginal weather conditions in Papua New Guinea. Enjoy the flight in a Cessna Caravan from coast to highlands & back to the coast. Would you have done it!? Hope you enjoy. Cheers.

  23. Thanks Frank, you never disappoint. Funny, watching the vid I was think how beautiful the mountains and valley's looked but wondered how hot and buggy it probably was and then you mentioned working there and confirmed it.

  24. Wasn't too long ago I watched a documentary about nazi mega works that showed Valentin and its bomb damage, thanks for showing not only how it was flown but the old airfields too. Thanks for the look-see Frank, still enjoying these history journeys.

  25. Great story to make into a video Frank, thanks for the look back. The greatest generation? I believe so. I remember seeing the PT-109 movie as a kid and thought it was so cool I made a model of the boat (Revel?). Wish I still had it but being young at the time it was eventually was destroyed by fireworks in mock action.

  26. Why doesn't Tarzan have a beard when he lives in the jungle without a razor? Why do we press harder on a remote control when we know the batteries are flat? Why do banks charge a fee on 'insufficient funds' when they know there is not enough? Why do Kamikaze pilots wear helmets? Why does someone believe you when you say there are four billion stars, but check when you say the paint is wet? Whose idea was it to put an 'S' in the word 'lisp'? What is the speed of darkness? Why is it that people say they 'slept like a baby' when babies wake up every two hours?

  30. Like the Piper Cub, the Kitfox has a certain charm in low and slow flying. I've been to Arizona a few times and the Fox is a perfect plane for checking out the scenery and backcountry strips, although I don't remember the bushes being that big. Does the Kitfox have the Rotax engine, it has a cool deep buzz saw sound. As an aside did you see the new BSA motorcycle has a Rotax single on it, sounds great too. Thanks for the look at this Medical flight re-creation Frank, I'm glad there are folks out there willing to do this type of work for others, kudos.

  33. Thanks for the look Frank, lot of desolate land out that way. The last touch and go was very well done but the others were what I would call chirp and goes. Someday hopefully MSFS will be able to show the sides of the mountains as they look in real life with all the crumbling sedimentary shelfs.

  34. Come visit the beautiful Scottish Highlands & learn about the mysterious WW2 crash that took the life of Prince George (Duke of Kent) & 13 others. Visit several WW2 airfields & seaplane bases, & learn a bit about anti-submarine underwater electric cables & early nuclear facilities. Enjoy the beautiful scenery too! Cheers.

  35. Nice review Joe. So much so, you have persuaded me to purchase one. Have been looking for some time. My present laptop, Alienware M15x, is a bit long in the tooth....12yrs. Ok, so have updated the Drive to a 2TB SSD also increased the ram from 4GB to 8GB; maximum the MB will take. Will be nice to have a portable machine that can run a simmulator though, P3D 4.5 in my case.
