  1. One often hears that the big oil companies are looking into, and investing i, electric or alternative fuels. But who actually believes that? The Oil companies biggest business revolves around Oil and Oil products, without the need for Oil the companies would very quickly go bust! Thousands of people across the world suddenly out of work and millions of tons of shipping lying idle. Those companies will protect themselves at all cost, even if if it means environmental destruction. Especially the government backed ones such as Russia and China. They have too much to lose to seriously be considering dumping their core business. And worldwide demand for fossil fuels is so high that it will still be in use in 100 years time! If mankind is still alive that's another matter entirely!
  2. Could be interesting, I still run FSX and have a massive virtual hangar. It's roughly the same size as my FS9 set up was. I rarely use the system these days as am always too busy. However the biggest frustration is having to convert all the screenshots manually from PNG to JPEG so that Imgur accepts them. I have a whole load of them that need converting but having to do them one by one is a real pain in the ass.
  3. Supermarine Spitfire Mk.IX G-IRTY departing Goodwood on her round the world flight. Accompanied by her Pilatus PC-12 chase and support aircraft and for a short while over Sussex 3 other Spitfires. There were also a number of Helicopters with cameras filming the event . The weather was very kind to her and her first stop was Lossiemouth in Scotland. Next stop is the Faroe Islands and then Iceland, Greenland and into Canada and the USA., I took over 150 photos but have only included a small number here. Further details of the flight can be found here: https://www.silverspitfire.com/?fbclid=IwAR0oJctyOzVANl8MkhW1XwjXO569K1Ufoa_6Ea5ImG0_LZ_esJ9TEB3orIw Thanks for viewing
