Re: Bushfires

We were in NSW and Victoria in 2007 when they were having serious fires ( although not I think as serious as these) , and the blue haze from the eucalypts was frightening to see, explaining why the fire can jump perhaps 1/2 a mile at a time . We pray for rain for the affected areas, and that the dam...

Re: Latest X Plane Experiences ?

Nigel, thank you very much for those links . I will download them when I have finished rectifying my very stupid error : having downloaded Europe and Scandinavia, I went on to add Greenland etc, and when the map also lit up Europe and Scandi I " crossed them off " because I did not want to load them...

Re: Latest X Plane Experiences ?

Thanks to everyone for the encouragement : now downloaded along with Europe and Scandinavian scenery , and it really is as good as suggested ( except for the slowness of the server ) .

Latest X Plane Experiences ?

I have read all of the 34 page thread which sets out Nigel HJ's experiences, but it ends in Feb 2019. What are the latest views on XP ? Is it still very good for most people or has 11.3 spoilt it?

Re: Qantas 737s in a pickle

The pickle fork structure is attached the front spar, not the rear. Also, my understanding is that it's a secondary "load relief" structure designed to help keep the fuselage located on the wing center section, thus why the repair isn't a major concern (i.e. immediate grounding). The other thing th...
