    Just felt there should be a spot to comment on that hilarious ATWC image Joe posted. I saw it early this morning when he posted it on Facebook, and it started my day out belly laughing. Thanks for that Joe. Awesome.

    Andrew, thats one poor excuse to say that you are a "man from a land down under".. Shocker! Already on my way south for my legs. How on earth did i manage to pick one with a MTOW of a couple of packs of Krispy Kreme Doughnuts...

    I'm pretty sure that Krispy Kreme Doughnuts can increase the weight of anything they are near, just by FM (Friggin' Magic).

    Shouldn't that read "A ONCE top secret desert assembly plant starts ramping up to build Northrop's B-21 bomber"

    Great PIREP Chuck! Nice choice of aircraft, definitely one I would choose myself. Matt you remind me of an incident my wife and I had in the Lake District here in the UK when we were young. We had only been married a year and we went on holiday to the Lakes in August. The weather was fine, a hot day with not a cloud in the sky. We took a rowing boat out on to Lake Windermere to enjoy a lazy day on the water. I was rowing, my back towards the direction we were going with my beautiful new wife in front of me facing toward me. I noticed what I thought was an insect above her head, which as I watched it grew bigger and bigger. The only sound was that of me rowing and the lap of water on the boats hull, but still this insect grew larger and larger. Then suddenly, with a flash of a shadow the insect became a Harrier GR3 at it raced over us at full speed. The sound arrived only after the aircraft had overtaken us and was accompanied by a violent wash which nearly had the boat overturned. My wife who had had no warning was most distressed. I thought it was great.

    Totally agree, the original is an all time classic. It should never have been remade.

    I really don't know what the state of the art now is John, havn't flown RC anything in years. But RC fields still have frequency boards from the Youtubing I watch of the subject...a page called Flight Test goes to big events like this, and there is often a freq board on the fields that I have seen, there must be a good reason for it. Just googled it...modern radios use a 2.4 ghz freq that has sub channels that switch automatically to help prevent interference. Perhaps the pilot was using an old school 72mhz radio...there were a bunch of really fully featured and very programmable radios that used the 72mhz, maybe he clung (regrettably) to his old radio?

    Like I said - Windoze is a virus. If any other piece of software acted like this, we'd have filters in place (or software) to prevent issues.

    It reminded me of the one time I took my sailboat out to the maritime madness that is San Francisco Fleet Week featuring thousands of drunk boaters and the Blue Angels every year. Since I am about a 4 hour or more (tide dependent) sail from the main bay, we left the day before so we could get to a nearby anchorage and Be There Saturday morning. As we were approaching the anchorage near Paradise Cove, Mill Valley...a bit north of Angel Island, the Blue Angels chose my boat as the focal point of a practice multi-plane Converge/cross over...freaking loud, awesome and astounding point of view of that stunt. We were the only boat nearby, made sense they picked us...so lucky. One of my buddies yelled right after "Best Damned Payback from my Taxes EVER!!!!" It really was. p.s. They weren't quite as low as Chuck...I'd not blame Simon for sh**** his pants.

    Oh the shame! It wasn't correct that I, Mutley should be named in the Paradise Papers. It was all in Mrs Mutley's name.

    Arrgghh! What a disaster. Ironic - as goes the airline, so goes the model. John

    1) No problem in my book in continuing to stick with Win7 for a while. It's dead solid and works very well. I believe that MS is committed to support until some time in 2020. After that, you're increasingly virus-bait. 2) You need to stand a little closer to that razor, but the beard does look better than that hat in your last avatar image. John

    Great fun, we had several WW1 replicas at Booker and were lucky enough to display 3 of them at Farnborough in the late 90s. Back gate passses to the airshow and able to get up close and personal with all the aircraft as we had access all areas passes! More recently there are always a smattering of WW1 displays at the Shoreham Air Show, (or at least there were until some silly sod planted a Hunter there a couple of years ago!)

    Welcome to the forums and to ATWC David.. thats a cracking PIREP to start off I feel for you with the system issues; been there countless times too and it's frustrating. Hope you get the problems ironed out before your next leg... I'll warn you that ATWC is addictive

    That was a great movie Alan, the remake not so much. The young Korean crew were known for their hijinks but the Slip-n-Slide was the final straw
