Re: The First Heathrow and the Piper McKay Viscount

Hi Ken, The passage quoted by Dave is correct, can't think why it should be different on later manuals *-) The airspeed lock was inoperative on BEA Viscounts fitted with the SEP2 system throughout the aircraft life. This may have been partly due to the complex and constantly changing Vno figure on 8...

Re: Garry's Bristol Freighter

I'm sure we, or rather Garry, did Seaboard, as I did the titles if my memory serves me correctly. I think at least one BAF livery was done too. I was so long ago now I've no idea which beta version they fitted, but will see what I've got.

Cheers

Re: Garry Russell

Thanks for posting this sad news Dave.

Garry was a good friend, we used to sympathise with each other as being the world's two most obsessive Viscount addicts. In reality, he'd forgotten more than I knew historically. A huge talent and a proper gent, I will miss him enormously.

Re: HS-748 modding; Water methanol injection.

All Dart powered aircraft use full power, trimmed to ambient, for takeoff. The primary reason being to enable the autofeather system to operate if necessary.

Re: HS-748 fuel issue

Can't check until the weekend, but the fuel system programming is very basic, each engine fed by it's respective tank by default.

Will come back to you then.

Re: Freightmaster

I think it was BAF who christened their only V.808 "Freightmaster". Scottish Aviation converted three for Aer Lingus with the double forward cargo doors. Later BAF stripped down V.806 G -AOYJ, which had by then become G-BLOA, and added Freightmaster titles, but the original forward door remained una...

Cherished number plate...

Caught out the corner of my eye the other day a four by four whizzing by with the number plate,

Wondered if it might belong to anyone on here. Quite desirable I imagine :)

Re: HS 748 updated panel problems

Hi Guys, :hello: As has been identified, the sound is not controllable and is the [jet whine] part of the sound cfg. Switching aircraft back and forth with engines off will stop it, or comment out the sound name. I've just checked, and the door warning light bitmap is incorrectly named in the XML, a...
