Re: Tiger Moth Update X-Plane 11

When I was at school, about 1961 , a fellow pupil called Ives was the lucky recipient of an RAF Flying Scholarship . One day I looked out of the window on one of the playing fields to see precisely this view . Needless to say it was Ives, and from what I can remember it did not endear him to either ...

Re: Non-British aircraft

LHR- Liverpool was quite well used for a period in the 1980s. They started with a DC9-10 which from recollection was Finnish registered, and moved on to very smart DC9-30s in the later very blue livery. The route had been taken over from Cambrian, which had used Viscounts and then 1-11 , and later w...

Re: A Must Have...

I've now discovered the spinning is idiosyncratic : if one enters from a straight power off stall, it recovers easily ( in fact it doesn't really spin properly at all ) ; if, however, you enter from a power on climbing turn, the airspeed disappears completely and nothing will get it back, power on, ...

Re: A Must Have...

It's a very interesting aeroplane and takes off, cruises and lands very nicely. However, I have come across one oddity : although it will enter a spin very authentically, it seems to be impossible to recover - even though the nose stays pitched down, the airspeed disappears completely , rudder will ...

Re: Weather report 20th December 2019

Note to UK... you're going to find out just what you've elected, and trust me, they're even worse than the lying idiots we've got. Note to Moderators... bit emotional at what's happening at home. Please delete this if out of order. Paul We have usually managed to avoid politics on this board. It ha...

Re: Making Tough British Manuever To Runway To Avoid Noise Pollution

Well I'm blowed . I take it all back ( except that Aharon's aeroplane is an A300 ! ) . Incidentally I only ever once travelled on an A310 and it was horrible, porpoising and yawing continuously . Whether it was the pilot or autopilot malfunctioning we shall never know

Re: Making Tough British Manuever To Runway To Avoid Noise Pollution

Lovely pics .. a slight nitpick , but isn't that an A300B4 ? I cannot recall any A310 ever being on the British Register, nor indeed operated by a british Airline

Re: Old wheels for you to identify

I think that is a stylized 'A' (for Armstrong maybe) rather than the tri-legged Merc logo. I'm not sure about that. I think it may be an Institute of Advanced Motorists' badge . The car is incredibly rare : whilst there are a few saloons around , this coupe is another matter. It just shows that car...

X Plane 11 - best weather engine ?

Thanks to all who helped with my choice of XP 11. After using it for a month I now come to the choice of weather. I have tried FSX 3.0 but in truth was not that happy with it, compared with the old days of Active Sky. There's not much difference in price at the moment, although i have seen some unfa...
