    Thanks for the look back Alan, you can almost see the P-51 peeking through. Can you imagine that in those days they actually fought the use of swept back wings, lol.

    I sure hope he never finds out about our super top secret weapons development base well within Jong-un's reach. It's even blacked out on Google Maps it's so top secret . Check for your self at " 56.406726, 143.394327 "...use satellite view. Two super secret US bases are hidden there within strike range of Russia...if Jong-un attacked those, he would make a huge pal of Putin. And, again....DO NOT tell Jong-un.

    Thanks for the kind comments. The Caribbean is well represented in the virtual world with great scenery both freeware and payware. With the standard of visuals in modern sims, real weather and a few textures enhancements it's hard not to be impressed! With a lower cruising FL than jets the Q400 lets you see all the wonderful "eye-candy". I've spent a good few hours setting up scenery in P3Dv4 over the last few weeks to get it "just right"....worth the time and effort for sure. "Wain" - a good friend of mine introduced me to the Q400 a couple of years ago. I certainly don't know how to use all of it's amazing features but there is a great feeling of satisfaction when you shut down the engines at the gate after a flight in it. I would say it is becoming one of my favourite aircraft! It was getting a bit raucous in the cabin...more likely down to my flying skills than football fans I'd say! The VA name is a bit tongue in cheek and has raised a chuckle or two over the years, especially on VATSIM or IVAO. It isn't football related but goes back to late 1999. Late one evening I was chatting (typing) on the "interweb" using a program called ICQ which was a cracking little tool with a features ahead of it's time. Anyhoo...the conversation was brainstorming around the topic of a name for the VA. We wanted something different and not just "XYZ Airways". Ian, who at the time was the Fleet Manager, asked his ten year old daughter for some suggestions....she instantly came back with "airwego"...well how could we not adopt it. Original, funny and definitely quirky! I could write for hours on the topic of Airwego, but then this might become a recruitment topic, as over the last seventeen years it has been a lot of fun. Yeah there is the flying element of it but it's the people I have met through it. Many have gone on to become friends, others have used the VA as a springboard into real world aviation careers, some (sadly) we have lost while in 2017 we have crew who were but "babes in arms" when we started out! Oddly I ask that you don't visit the VA website...well not this month anyway! Wait until December when our new all singing dancing website goes live!

    The Camels engine sounded very rough. Great video. There is a replica Sopworth Camel at Brooklands Museum, every now and then they wheel it out of the hanger and do an engine run. Dont stand behind it as the propwash is laden with castor oil!

    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

    No! I said put nitrogen in the nose gear tires, not helium. (Coff is going to hate the physics on that one.)
