Re: Malaysia Airline Flight MH370

Well the way my theory went, you noticed you have a fire and you turn, you then suffer a depressurisation and perhaps you don't make it down to a safe altitude in time before you lose consciousness or become otherwise incapacitated. I had seen that plot, it's in the New Yorker article. Certainly the...

Re: Aero Expo Friedrichshafen 2019

Thanks for all the comments - I can probably dig out some more (but less CBFsim related) images from the event if anyone's interested?

Re: Malaysia Airline Flight MH370

I probably skipped over that bit - just re-read that part. I skim read it after I should have gone to bed! I had heard such assertions about a simulated flight before, but I wasn't sure how much history MSFS actually kept, if any at all. I'd also seen the bit about the tight turn not being possible ...

Re: Malaysia Airline Flight MH370

A very long read! Various groups have now seemingly decided to pin it on the captain. In light of the Germanwings flight that was intentionally flown into the Alps, that perhaps has more credibility than it would otherwise have and of course perhaps the police or other security agencies have [non-pu...

Aero Expo Friedrichshafen 2019

So, only two months late, I've finally got round to posting the (CBFSim-potentially-relevant/interesting) pics I took at Friedrichshafen this year. The main purpose of the Expo is to advertise and sell new aicraft, systems, avionics, engines, services and anything GA-related, but you find a wide var...

Re: HB TobyV, 36 today

Thank you all for the wishes and a special thanks to Graham for taking over Dave's mantle in remembering and celebrating everyone's birthdays.

I need to find a moment to post some photos from April's 'Aero Expo' at Friedrichshafen, including some Tiger Moth restoration pics.

RIP Niki Lauda

Niki Lauda has died aged 70. I first read about him I think in a book I found in the school library, probably around 1992 on F1 in the turbo era. He had of course retired from F1 in 1984, but here was a guy who raced F1 cars and set up an airline, and so interested me. As it would happen, my family ...
