    Never Argue with a Woman One morning, the husband returns the boat to their lakeside cottage after several hours of fishing and decides to take a nap. Although not familiar with the lake, the wife decides to take the boat out. She motors out a short distance, anchors, puts her feet up, and begins to read her book. The peace and solitude are magnificent. Along comes a Fish and Game Warden in his boat. He pulls up alongside the woman and says, 'Good morning, Ma'am. What are you doing?' 'Reading a book' she replies, (thinking, Isn't that obvious?') 'You're in a Restricted Fishing Area,' he informs her. 'I'm sorry, officer, but I'm not fishing. I'm reading.' 'Yes, but I see you have all the equipment. For all I know you could start at any moment. I'll have to take you in and write you up.' 'If you do that, I'll have to charge you with sexual assault,' says the woman. 'But I haven't even touched you,' says the Game Warden. 'That's true, but you have all the equipment. For all I know you could start at any moment.' 'Have a nice day ma'am,' and he left. MORAL: Never argue with a woman who reads. It's likely she can also think.

    REDNECK HOME SECURITY SYSTEM 1. Go to a secondhand store and buy a pair of men's used size 14-16 work boots. 2.Place them on your front porch, along with a copy of Guns & Ammo Magazine. 3.Put a few giant dog dishes next to the boots and magazines. 4.Leave a note on your door that reads: Bubba: Big'un, Duke, Slim, & I went for more ammo and beer. Back in an hour. Don't mess with the pit bulls – they attacked the mailman this morning and messed him up bad. I don't think Killer took part, but it was hard to tell from all the blood. Anyway, I locked all four of 'em in the house. Better wait outside. Cooter

    A man and woman were married for many years. Whenever there was a confrontation, yelling could be heard deep into the night. The old man would shout, "When I die, I will dig my way up and out of the grave and come back and haunt you for the rest of your life!" Neighbors feared him. The old man liked the fact that he was feared. Then one evening, he died when he was 98. After the burial, her neighbors, concerned for her, asked, "Aren't you afraid that he may indeed be able to dig his way out of the grave and haunt you for the rest of your life?" The wife said, " Let him dig. I had him buried upside down...and I know he won't ask for directions."

    There was three options for getting off the island: Low and slow Low and fast High and fast Low and slow (a) was out of the question. With around 2,000nm to travel, there was no way I was hiring a little aircraft to spend my day looking at water. Plus considering recent events, when attempts were made to go low and slow (see Leg 20 Part 2) it didn't work out too well for the pilot or the challenge. Option 2 was considered. Low and fast. Sounds interesting. But high speed flight at low altitude uses vast amounts of fuel, and keeping that range was important. Plus the concentration required over that distance, as well as navigational challenges, ruled it out. Some tempting offers were received for aircraft though. A rusty old F-111 was offered at a bargain price That leaves the final option - high and fast. A key requirement would be out-pacing any airliner or business jet - so supersonic it would have to be. Also, getting nice and high would be good - well above what is normally possible. Not many options here, so time for some bargaining. Hopefully this won't take long............ Well over a month later, my ride arrived into the island. In a crate or forty. Not ideal, but it would hopefully hide my intentions for a while, as long as Putinfeld doesn't look inside little boats. Assembling my chosen aircraft was reasonably easy, which was quite surprising considering what it was. Construction was in a small-ish hangar well away from the main apron. The first engine run would be the time I advanced the throttles to go. My shipper says the engines run perfectly. I hope he's right. There's not a lot to save me around here, and a crash would inevitably get unwanted attention. A plan was formed to get going early one morning. Everything I do in this challenge seems to involve an early start! A brief look over the aircraft seemed to reveal no outstanding issues. It was time to squirm into the pressure suit and get into the high-altitude mindset Hmm, the only commercial airline to fly here is LAN Chile with Dreamliners. That looks a bit odd Getting ready to push back. That front pillar is annoying The rather bright pushback tug doesn't help my stealthy departure, although soon everyone will know A short taxi to the end of the runway and fingers crossed time Blue flames shoot out the back. Impressive looking, but unusual! Lift off. I'll continue climbing now until around 70,000ft Leaving the sweltering island behind. Thank god Out into the inky blackness of the morning Safely away from the island, it's time to head up to speed. Up to this point I had been climbing at around Mach 0.85. Onwards and upwards to Mach 3 As we climb up, sunrise comes nice and early We took a little diversion to take a few photos of Isla San Felix. Around 1,800 miles from Easter Island, it took around an hour and ten minutes to fly. The island is just off the nose of the aircraft, as we pass over at 74,000ft Turning onto a direct course for Chile Space, the final frontier. A beautiful view All too soon it's time to descend from the dizzy heights to land. Descent started some 300nm from the Chilean coast Running over the coast at 450kts and 10,000ft Breaking for the airport Established on the ILS, with my ground speed horrifyingly low (down from 1,750kts to 250!) Touchdown just before the chute streamed. Not my best landing! With burning rubber and a beautiful braking parachute, we slow down A deserted terminal. Good from a security point of view, but where is my next pilot? After a two hour flight, it's time to get some air With everything shut down, we have to wait for the aircraft to cool down a bit before moving it. A nice black aircraft will attract some attention around here, so I quickly scurry off to a hotel on the other side of the city. I hope the next pilot comes soon - there's some suspicious looking people around here........ Aircraft used: Updated Alphasim SR-71(Paul R. Varn)

    IRISH GHOST STORY This story happened a while ago in Dublin, and even though it sounds like an Alfred Hitchcock tale, it's true. ~~~~~~~~~~~~ John, a Dublin University student, was on the side of the road hitch-hiking on a very dark night and in the midst of a big storm. The night was rolling on and no car went by. The storm was so strong he could hardly see a few feet ahead of him. Suddenly, he saw a car slowly coming towards him and stopped. John, desperate for shelter and without thinking about it, got into the car and closed the door ... only to realise there was nobody behind the wheel and the engine wasn't running. The car started moving slowly. John looked at the road ahead and saw a curve approaching. Scared, he started to pray, begging for his life. Then, just before the car hit the curve, a hand appeared out of nowhere through the window, and turned the wheel. John, paralysed with terror, watched as the hand came through the window, but never touched or harmed him. Shortly thereafter, John saw the lights of a pub appear down the road, so, gathering strength, he jumped out of the car and ran to it... Wet and out of breath, he rushed inside and started telling everybody about the horrible experience he had just had. A silence enveloped the pub when everybody realised he was crying ... and wasn't drunk. Suddenly, the door opened, and two other people walked in from the dark and stormy night. They, like John, were also soaked and out of breath. Looking around, and seeing John Bradford sobbing at the bar, one said to the other... ‘Look Paddy .... there's that fooking idiot that got in the car while we were pushing it!'

    An Irishman goes into the confessional box after years of being away from the Church. He is amazed to find a fully equipped bar with Guinness on tap. On the other wall is a dazzling array of the finest cigars and chocolates. Then the priest comes in. Excitedly, the Irishman begins..."Father, forgive me, for it's been a very long time since I've been to confession, but I must first admit that the confessional box is much more inviting than it used to be." The priest replies, "Get out. You're on my side."

    A horse was having a couple of drinks in the pub when he sees a donkey sitting over in the corner. So he wanders over and asks the donkey if he might join him. They start chatting and the horse asks. "What did you do?" "I gave kiddies rides on the beach. What did you do?" asks donkey. "A racehorse." "Win anything?" Asks donkey. " Yes, the Grand National, St Leger, Gold Cup and the Derby." Anyway they chat along and arrange to meet at the donkeys house in a couple of days. Donkey thinks now how can I impress him, so he goes out and buys a large picture of a zebra and hangs it above his fireplace. Horse comes round to donkeys house. "Nice place you've got here. What's that?" he asks looking at the picture. "That's me when I played for Newcastle United." For those not in the know, Newcastle United colours are black and white.

    A group of Canadians were travelling by tour bus through Holland. As they stopped at a cheese farm, a young guide led them through a process of cheese making, explaining that goat’s milk was used. She showed the group a lovely hillside where many goats were grazing. These, she explained, were the older goats put out to pasture when they no longer produced. She then asked, “What do you do in Canada with your old goats that aren’t producing?” A spry old gentleman answered, “They send us on bus tours.”

    Hi guys. A very big thank you from my side for yet another MEBAR. I got hooked last year flying the P51 Mustang around the South Americans. This year I think I'll go either A2A Texan or A2A Comanche, not sure yet. Will do the test flight this weekend and hop around Norway some more to get my decision going. Also, as CEO of the small but very active Andras Meridian Virtual Airlines, I'm hoping to enthuse other of my fellow pilots in joining, flying in our house colors. It seems a rush for repaints and personalised nose-art is already underway. Naturally I will bore you to tears again with my flight stories . Tally Ho!

    The term “The Emerald Isle” is synonymous with Ireland and its rolling hills and vales of green – at least forty shades, or so the famous Johnny Cash song goes. But how did Ireland come to be known as the Emerald Isle? Ireland’s resplendent greenery certainly had a lot to do with it, but there's more to the story and it starts with one rather interesting man. The first time the words ever appeared in print in reference to Ireland was in a poem by Belfast-born William Drennan, titled “When Erin First Rose.”

    A couple of interesting items of news that may have slipped under the radar for some... Razbam have released a TacPack version of the A-7 D/E Corsair II. While is available to purchase, it is still being refined. (Yes, I have it!!) Aerosoft have added the Lightning F.53 to their F.6 package. It even includes the rare desert camouflage version, which is very nice. I bought mine from FSPilot Shop and as my account for the Lightning was still valid, when I downloaded it again, the F.53 was included. Yey!!

    <Company Channel> Calling Mike: Calling Mike. I need you to meet me on the apron at Sucre! I've had c CRJ trailing 7 miles off my starboard wing for the last 400 miles. FlightBeware lists as ACME-75, which is one of Putinfeld's regular callsigns, so somehow we've been made, I reckon. Gonna firewall the throttle and hope to get in before him - or run out of fuel in the process! It's gonna be close . . . </Company Channel>

    No boxed lunch this round. So no calamari till dinner time I'm afraid. I'm filling in this leg to plug a hole in our ATWC pilot schedule, and despite volunteering to stand in the breech, real world dental breaches distracted me a bit from publishing this leg...neverthelesss, the show must go on. Using my new status as a member of the THRUSH organization, I have carte blanche to "check out" and exercise any of our vehicle resources stashed around the globe, this will prove quite handy, and possibly random for upcoming ATWC legs wherever they may be. The best THRUSH resource available in the current area was a looker, but not well suited for snacking whilst flying...sigh...a few power bars will have to suffice for this trip. We have a mothballed F-100 Ex-Thunderbird #6 stored in the area. I retrieve it from a secret resource base, and head to SCAT...STAT. I may have even seen this very bird perform while I was a child at an airshow...somewhere in California...my sub 5 year old memories are not very reliable. Nor are 50+ memories when beset with teeth pain. I stock up on some codeine for the trip, benzocaine and a stock of cotton tip applicators and ready this lovely thing for flight...the un'pickling work helped to distract from my toothache. Upon arrival at SCAT I find an electronic message indicating that the long since departed Chuck has used the tried and true secure tranfer method "Bus Station locker" to pass on the baton...the key for which is handed to me by a serious looking security officer who met me at the airport parking ramp on arrival...a firightened looking guy twice my weight and half again my height was told to give it to Captain Coffee arriving in something unmistakable...or Else...not sure what story Chuck told the guy but he was extremely happy to be lightened of the orange plastic fobbed burden for locker number 66. I find the station, retrieve the baton and a bottle of tequila (Thanks Chuck!!!), and head back to the airport for a bit of relax at the pilot lounge with a lovely bottle of Silver. I'll probably sack out on the couch here, can't be arsed to book a room as I plan to roll out very early for the first of two legs. The next morning, I am ready to roll for my flight in the predawn light at SCAT Desierto De Atacama...fueled to the brim and external ferry tanks even installed, to allow a brisk climb to FL35. I don't expect any "Trouble" on this leg as it is mostly landlocked...but fast and high is both safe and fuel efficient in this bird. Taxi. Permission to Take Off at 35: I get a tiny bit squirrelly with the AB thrust and get slightly off center...but the nose stays pointed the right way...all golden. I keep the AB on for just a bit to ensure I clear those ominous silhouettes ahead. AB off when I'm certain I'm alti'safe. And we relax into a nice Cruise into the sunrise at 35K. Almost clear of the mountains before the sun is fully up. Left to Right Pan shots: Passing over the Paraguay River: About 125 miles out of SGIB I begin my descent, and add a bit of AB just to pop over Mach1 on the way down. I have some weather ahead, just a smallish cell of squall that should clear before well SGIB. A bit buffety, but not to bad in this. Caught a nice little Forker below me as I was clearing the weather...a parting shot. Out in clear air again. "Enter Right Base for 03...and Cleared to land" come in over the radio in fairly quick succsuccession. I'm on the glideslope...not using ILS to land, this is an all Matt'ual landing. This thing always feels a ungainly to me on approach... And this shot explains why it feels ungainly, it looks ungainly even at 170kts full flaps....like a goose preparing for a big splash. Ah Chute...Thankful for this or the runway length would have felt much shorter. Taxiing to parking Parked and provisioning for the next leg. Fuel order has been placed, and the calamari order I have been dreaming of on the way will be ordered very shortly. The Baton and I, along with the remainder of Chuck's Silver bottle head for the Pilot lounge. I will attend to the next leg hopefully in short order, again, possibly flying the leg by this Thursday. Cheers, Matt. Addons used: Milviz F100-D OrbX South America/Global/Vectors Active Sky Next Rex Textures/Soft Clouds

    US and Canadian standard railroad gauge (distance between the rails) is 4 feet, 8.5 inches. That's an exceedingly odd number. Why was that gauge used? Well, because that's the way they built them in England, and English engineers designed the first US railroads. Why did the English build them like that? Because the first rail lines were built by the same people who built the wagon tramways, and that's the gauge they used. So, why did 'they' use that gauge then? Because the people who built the tramways used the same jigs and tools that they had used for building wagons, which used that same wheel spacing. Why did the wagons have that particular odd wheel spacing? Well, if they tried to use any other spacing, the wagon wheels would break more often on some of the old, long distance roads in England . You see, that's the spacing of the wheel ruts. So who built those old rutted roads? Imperial Rome built the first long distance roads in Europe (including England ) for their legions. Those roads have been used ever since. And what about the ruts in the roads? Roman war chariots formed the initial ruts, which everyone else had to match or run the risk of destroying their wagon wheels. Since the chariots were made for Imperial Rome , they were all alike in the matter of wheel spacing. Therefore the United States standard railroad gauge of 4 feet, 8.5 inches is derived from the original specifications for an Imperial Roman war chariot. Bureaucracies live forever. So the next time you are handed a specification/procedure/process and wonder 'What horse's ass came up with this?', you may be exactly right. Imperial Roman army chariots were made just wide enough to accommodate the rear ends of two war horses. (Two horses' asses.) Now, the twist to the story: When you see a Space Shuttle sitting on its launch pad, there are two big booster rockets attached to the sides of the main fuel tank. These are solid rocket boosters, or SRBs. The SRBs are made by Thiokol at their factory in Utah . The engineers who designed the SRBs would have preferred to make them a bit fatter, but the SRBs had to be shipped by train from the factory to the launch site. The railroad line from the factory happens to run through a tunnel in the mountains, and the SRBs had to fit through that tunnel. The tunnel is slightly wider than the railroad track, and the railroad track, as you now know, is about as wide as two horses' behinds. So, a major Space Shuttle design feature, of what is arguably the world's most advanced transportation system, was determined over two thousand years ago by the width of a horse's ass. And you thought being a horse's ass wasn't important? Ancient horse's asses control almost everything and.... CURRENT Horses Asses are controlling everything else.

    I recently purchased the FSL A320 for P3Dv4, and have barely put it down all weekend, a great product, if a little pricey, but if you're looking for the most realistic Airbus sim, look no further. Anyway, I flew to Tenerife last night from Gatwick, one of many flights completed in the new A320 this weekend! In the left turn from Gatwick over Redhill Back past LGW on a SAM departure Channel islands Over Brest España On a rare approach to Rwy 25! And a nightstop, she's somebody elses problem now! Thanks for looking!

    Funnily enough, my RW QXC included Conington. Didn't find it to be a particularly friendly place, and was never inclined to go back there. Funnily too, I was flying out of Enstone . . .

    For those who have never delved into the panel.cfg file of aircraft, it may appear daunting at first, however, it is relatively easy to work with when adding 2D pop-up windows. This quick tutorial is using FSX. The 2D pop-up window is the simplest method for quickly adding the FTime timer gauge for use during the MEBAR. IMPORTANT NOTE. For the timer to commence counting during the take-off roll, it MUST be displayed. Instructions. 1. Unzip the contents of the FTimeV4 zip file to a temporary folder. 2. From the temporary folder above, copy the Gauges folder into your main FSX folder. The contents of this Gauges folder will be merged with the existing content in your Gauges folder, creating a folder called Digital in your Gauges folder. The Digital folder contains the required FTime.xml and Box.bmp files for the timer. 3. Navigate to the panel folder of the aircraft you are flying. 4. Make a back-up copy of the panel.cfg file. 5. Open the panel.cfg file with a text editor, Notepad works fine. 6. We are adding a 2D pop-up and this is defined as a 'Window' in the panel.cfg file. To do this, there are two specific entries to the panel.cfg file which we need to make. The first entry is to add the 'Window' in the 'Window Titles' section at the top of the panel.cfg file, and the second entry is to define the parameters of the 'Window'. The panel.cfg file example below is the FSX default Cessna 172. The required entries are displayed in red and this will display the timer in the top left corner of the monitor by pressing Shift + 7, being the 7th entry in the 'Window Titles' list. // Panel Configuration file // Cessna 172sp // Copyright © 2001-2003 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved. [Window Titles] Window00=Main Panel Window01=Radio Stack Window02=GPS Window03=IFR Panel Window04=Landing View Window05=Mini Panel Window06=Timer [Window06] size_mm=45,25 position=0 visible=0 ident=Timer gauge00=Digital!FTime, 0,0,45,25 [Window00] file_1024=cessna_172_background.bmp file_1024_night=cessna_172_background_night.bmp size_mm=640 position=7 visible=1 no_luminous=1 ident=MAIN_PANEL zorder=0 windowsize_ratio=1.000 window_pos=0.0,0.0 window_size=1.000,1.000 view_window_rect=0,0,8192,4000 gauge00=Cessna!Altimeter, 346,167, 79, 79 gauge01=Cessna!Annunciator, 517,159, 62, 15 gauge02=Cessna!Avionics Switch, 288,426, 37, 47 gauge03=Cessna!Flaps, 467,415, 48, 64 7. Save the file. If you are making changes to the panel.cfg file with FSX running and you want to see the affect of the changes, you must reload the aircraft after saving the file. 8. In the 'Window Titles' section, it is important the Window number, e.g. Window06, is the next number in the sequence and that this corresponds with the section defining the parameters of the 'Window'. 9. As previously mentioned, this will display the timer in the top left corner of the monitor. There are nine predefined fixed display positions in FSX, numbered 0 to 8, where a 2D pop-up window can be displayed. Changing the 'position=' entry will display it accordingly. These positions and the corresponding numbers are below. 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 10. If you want to adjust the size of the displayed timer (sometimes this will be a need due to the aircraft add-on used), make the necessary adjustments to the 'size_mm=' entry and the last two corresponding numbers in the 'gauge00=' entry. 11. Here is a screenshot of finished result. Cheers Andrew

    I mean, perhaps not a traffic oddity because the aircraft was the standard 2000ft below me on a similar track, the main oddity coming from this aircraft 'snaking' down the airway making 30 degree turns every 5 miles or so, and the fact that this was a B767 flying at an IAS of 220kts, which at FL360 would've been about M0.75. Needless to say my little FR 738 overtook this EL AL very quickly doing M.78

    President Trump is walking out of the White House and heading toward his limo, when a possible assassin steps forward and aims a gun. A secret service agent, new on the job, shouts “Mickey Mouse!” This startles the would be assassin and he is captured. Later, the secret service agent’s supervisor takes him aside and asks, “What in the hell made you shout Mickey Mouse?” Blushing, the agent replies, “I got nervous. I meant to shout, “Donald, duck!” John
