    Hi, I only have 2017 found at this link https://app.box.com/s/wmokmewkfjwyoaaviniu5jr4h3b97sr9 and it only includes the flight situation files, one through five that get dumped into the C:\Users\YOUR NAME\Documents\Flight Simulator X Files. Missing is all the other stuff you need to make a flight plan so it won't do you much good unless you can figure it out using the archive threads. I always wished they made all the MEBAR flight files available in the MEBAR section of the home page so they could all be revisited instead of just the threads talking about them. Hopefully others can help you and did a better job of saving things. Good luck

    I've taken the plunge, albeit a bit late to the party, but I've gone straight from fsx to p3dv5.

    The long-awaited throttle quadrant arrives at the end of October... https://www.scan.co.uk/products/honeycomb-aeronautical-bravo-throttle-usb-6-axis-14-illuminated-indicators-7-programmable-switches-a

    Thanks Tim, It may also be worth considering Aerosoft as their (German) VAT is only 16% until the end of the year (2020) https://www.aerosoft.com/en/hardware/flight-simulation/throttles/2568/honeycomb-bravo-throttle-quadrant As a comparison, delivered, Scan is £251.49 and Aerosoft is £225.91 (at present exchange rates) so may be worth investigating again nearer to release date.

    High resolution public domain aerial imagery. While only the immediate area around airports or very limited areas of the metropolises are available in the phenomenally high resolution of 1.2 meters per pixel, larger parts of the region, mostly hinterland, are available resolution 1- 4.3 meters per pixel.

    I know I am very sporadic around here, but you are all like family. I've done it! We picked up a King Air last week and now I am a fancy turbine pilot. I know it isn't much in the grand scheme of things... but dammit! I am on cloud 9. And then this was the cherry on top on the way home:

    A policeman was rushed to the hospital with an inflamed appendix.. The doctors operated and advised him that all was well, however, the policeman kept feeling something pulling at the hairs in his crotch. Worried that it might be a second surgery and the doctors hadn't told him about it, he finally got enough energy to pull his hospital gown up enough so he could look at what was making him so uncomfortable. Taped firmly across his pubic hair and private parts were three wide strips of adhesive tape, the kind that doesn't come off easily --- if at all. Written on the tape in large black letters was the sentence,: "Get well soon, from the nurse in the Ford Focus you gave a speeding ticket to last week."

    This is too good to miss!! VERY funny post from Kokomo In The Know Facebook. Since I have thought about it overnight I have decided to comply with the mask mandates. After all I want to be a great Patriot and American and definitely don’t want to be selfish. So if it saves lives I’ll do it. But I need guidance from the experts on here since I am obviously clueless. Please help. QUESTION(s): 1) After shopping at the local grocery store, do we leave the masks on once we leave or does the virus just stay in the stores? - If we leave it on, then for how long? - How many miles can I drive before it is safe to remove the mask? 2) What about my fingers, arms, legs, head, neck and toes? Should I disinfect them BEFORE or AFTER I remove my mask? After all they were exposed at the store. 2.1) if I touch my mask do I have to sanitize my hands 2.2) now I contaminated my hand sanitizer bottle . What do I do? 3) When we arrive home from the grocery store do we disinfect the goods and bags BEFORE we bring them inside or AFTER? - Do I put the mask back on? 4) Once we have the goods inside do we disinfect the entire car or just the trunk? 5) Do we need to disinfect our counter tops, pantries, refrigerator, entire kitchen, the dogs (they always sniff the bags) doors we touched, the garage, driveway and street? 6) What should we do about the food and goods purchased? Do we need to disinfect all these items as well? After all they were in the grocery store exposed to all these nasty liberal viruses. 7) What should I do with my homemade fancy cloth mask? Do I burn it? It was also exposed to the nasty liberal virus at the store? 8)What about the clothes I wore to the store? Is disinfecting them ok? Do I disinfect them in the grocery store parking lot or in my garage? 9) What about my eyes? Are there special eye drops I need to take? Where do I get those? 10) After consuming the goods from the store do I need a biohazard bag for the waste? (Both trash and poop) 11) Is the juice and milk I bought safe to drink or should i disinfect it first? 12) Is there a specific shampoo to use if I get a hair cut to disinfect my hair? 13) My meds...what about my meds? Are they safe to orally consume or should I disinfect them too? 14) If I shop at a hardware store should I disinfect each screw, nut and bolt BEFORE or AFTER I put them in my project? 15) I want to paint my room but I am not sure if I should disinfect the paint BEFORE or AFTER I apply it to the walls. 16) What if I forgot to follow any of the above do I call the fire department, CDC or psychiatrist?

    I'm jumping back into this conversation since there is so much interest. Every day, in order to get some positive news, I read Phys.org to keep abreast of some of the wonderful work scientists are doing. Here are links to recent articles (including photos and videos) that I have read about radio astronomy: New distance measurements bolster challenge to basic model of universe Preparations complete in western Australia for construction of world's largest telescope Scientists close in on 12-billion-year-old signal from the end of the universe's 'dark age' Dan

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lovell_Telescope One of the most notable developments came in 1946 with the introduction of the technique called astronomical interferometry, which means combining the signals from multiple antennas so that they simulate a larger antenna, in order to achieve greater resolution. Astronomical radio interferometers usually consist either of arrays of parabolic dishes, arrays of one-dimensional antennas or two-dimensional arrays of omnidirectional dipoles. All of the telescopes in the array are widely separated and are usually connected using coaxial cable, waveguide, optical fiber, or other type of transmission line. Recent advances in the stability of electronic oscillators also now permit interferometry to be carried out by independent recording of the signals at the various antennas, and then later correlating the recordings at some central processing facility. This process is known as Very Long Baseline Interferometry (VLBI). Interferometry does increase the total signal collected, but its primary purpose is to vastly increase the resolution through a process called aperture synthesis. This technique works by superposing (interfering) the signal waves from the different telescopes on the principle that waves that coincide with the same phase will add to each other while two waves that have opposite phases will cancel each other out. This creates a combined telescope that is equivalent in resolution (though not in sensitivity) to a single antenna whose diameter is equal to the spacing of the antennas furthest apart in the array. A high-quality image requires a large number of different separations between telescopes. Projected separation between any two telescopes, as seen from the radio source, is called a baseline. For example, the Very Large Array (VLA) near Socorro, New Mexico has 27 telescopes with 351 independent baselines at once, which achieves a resolution of 0.2 arc seconds at 3 cm wavelengths. The world's largest physically connected telescope, the Square Kilometre Array (SKA), is planned to start operations in 2025

    Eastern Express(Ex-Frog) Bristol 175 Britannia C.2, RAF Lyneham, 1960. In 1960, the year I was born, my late Dad built the Frog boxing of this kit, He made a really good job of it and the photo shows me in his arms when I was about 2 weeks old. Then when I was about 3 he gave me the model, (once it had been drummed into me that I HAD to look after my toys.) As a 3 year old it seemed enormous! It became my first ever model and the progenitor of what became a lifelong hobby. Scroll forward to now and a year or so ago I came across this boxing of the same kit. I couldn't get the BOAC markings for it but Frog had in fact released the RAF Support Command version at the same time. I just finished building the kit after a couple of weeks work. (It's still bloody enormous!LOL) I've built the model as a tribute to my Dad and the hobby he started me off on. Rest in peace Dad. Thanks for viewing
