  1. Just a quick video of last weekend's Flight Sim Show at Cosford: Great to meet up with the Crew! Best wishes - Dai.
  2. Thanks, Vince - I'd like to try the effects in FSX - did I miss the download details? Cheers - Dai.
  3. Terrific, Vince - the helicopter dust/spray effects are excellent. Thanks for sharing! Now for the stupid question: "Will the effects work in FSX?"!! Cheers - Dai.
  4. Classic PIREP, Kieran - absolute Classic! Loved the Buccaneer - great choice, and fitting the carrier in was just the ticket. Cheers - Dai.
  5. You're sure 'quick on the draw', partner! Cheers - Dai.
  6. Llanbedr'll never be the same! Thanks for the heads up, U.M. Cheers - Dai.
  7. Thanks for a very enjoyable flight, John - and a smashing aircraft, too! It's good to see the Old Girls getting an airing - wonder what you'll choose for Leg 29?!? Cheers - Dai.
  8. Hi Helisimpilot If the 5 screens work in Windows, are the 3 x 27" screens set up as a 'single' wide-angle view and the 2 x smaller screens independent of this - i.e. an extension of the Windows 'desktop' onto, say, a left and a right screen? If so, then FSX should allow you to 'undock' 2 New Views (1 for Instruments + 1 for Console) and 'drag' them individually left and right. I only have 1 extra screen like this and the undocking seems to be the trick. By the way, +1 on Brett's Welcome! And do let us see your set up - sounds great! Cheers - Dai.
  9. Excellent handling, Sir! Impressive. Cheers - Dai.
  10. Thanks, Chaps - all in a days work, eh? Cheers - Dai.
  11. Nice one, Loic - my favourite 'plane, too! Cheers - Dai.
  12. Thanks for exposing the darker side of flight simming, Brian - now I realise that the time spent learning the procedures must be most valuable. And the PIREP wasn't bad, either! Cheers - Dai.
  13. Excellent holiday plus excellent photo's - thanks for sharing. Good to have you back, too! Cheers - Dai,
  14. So we won't be hearing much from you for a few days, eh?!? Take care - Dai.
  15. Thanks for your kind comments, Lads - I always feel a bit lost in today's tube-liner world, so it's nice to have the old Dizzie to fall back on. And those Google relief maps were a godsend. Cheers - Dai.
  16. Have a good one, Al' - and watch what you're doing with that glue! Cheers - Dai.
  17. I think you missed a spot, James! No, not really - nice job, mate! Cheers - Dai.
  18. Thanks, Chris - that's really useful. Cheers - Dai.
  19. Great post - mind the logs! Cheers - Dai.
  20. Well, here we are at Lashio for another ATWC Six leg: Something slightly different, this time - a 375 nm flight with 20 waypoints and all in VFR. You are joking, I hear you say? Well, suspend your disbelief for a couple of minutes... First, we go back in time - to Burmah in 1943. The Allies are having a hard time getting supplies through to Chiang Kai-shek. The Ledo (Assam) to Kunming land route is too long and a shorter route, from the railhead at Lashio, is being reconnoitered. This is where we come in. Instead of flying from Lashio to Kunming over the high plateaux, called The Hump, our j
  21. @ Mr Acker Brian: I'm waiting for the chemist in Kunming to finish developing my snaps! All will then be revealed... Cheers - Dai.
  22. Sorry to quote you, John, but Airbus has another set of worries as a Singapore Airlines A330 loses power to both engines and descends 4000m before re-starting them:http://www.theguardian.com/world/2015/may/27/singapore-airlines-jet-plunges-4000m-after-losing-power-in-both-engines Maybe, this is similar to the engine loss experienced when flying through volcanic plumes? Not good for Airbus - or Rolls Royce for that matter. Cheers - Dai.
  23. Mike, best start the mision, as normal, then Save at the point where you wish to Re-start - possibly after the introducory dialogues but before take off. You will need to tick the box for Show saved missions (or similar legend) so that your Save-d point shows up. Also, you might use the Save function during (all) missions before, say, a difficult landing or manouevre. You can then 'skip' to this strategic point again should you encounter difficulties. Hope that helps. Cheers - Dai.
  24. @ Rosario - memories! @ Mark - Welcome to the Hangar - make yourself at home. Cheers - Dai.
