Re: London to Sydney

From the book "The Great Air Race" by Arthur Swinson (1968), the route taken by C J Melrose in the Puss Moth was:

Mildenhall - Rome - Athens - Baghdad - Jask - Karachi - Calcutta - Rangoon - Singapore - Koepang - Darwin - Charleville - Melbourne

Hope this helps :)

Re: autorun.inf

Perhaps I am missing something but, as far as I am aware, autorun.inf is a little batch file added to CD ROMs to make them autorun by pointing to the appropriate .exe programme. You should be able to open and read autorun.inf in Notepad etc.

Hi Mick, Check what visibility you have selected in FSX. I have found that imported 2D panels don't show if the vis is set less than 10 miles. It could be an Nvidia or an FSX problem :think: Also, with the Dove, if you select some of the sub-panels, the main panel disappears. You can get it back in ...

Great job everyone! Just what I have been waiting for :smile: :smile: I am not at home much at the moment but if I can be of any help, please let me know (PM or email probably best). BTW, to be hypercritical, I think the auxiliary fins on the tailplane should have a slight taper; ie: less chord at t...

Very nice indeed. I think it is the "Round the World" livery used on WP833 and WP962 by Bill Purchase, Ced Hughes, Tony Cowan et al in 1997 for the successful Chipmunk circumnavigation of the globe. The whole story is in Bill's book "Around the World at 90 Knots - The Chipmunk Circumn...

Hi Alex,

Re the Safir at NAM - I firmly believe that the paint scheme is as she was delivered by the Norwegian Air Force.

I had a chat with my father, who flew Yorks in 1946/7, and he said that the control column was "eased" forward to get the tail up on take-off.

Hi Paul, Sorry about that :sad: I have found that the placing of the CofG relative to the main wheel contact points can be critical when it comes to getting the tail up. In my experience, it becomes a juggling act with the centre of lift, CofG, and brake strength to get the tail up without causing t...
