    FS-Snaps is now back on line - if you had uploaded any shots later than around 09.00 UTC on Saturday 16th, if you upload again to the same place with the same filenames they should show, but there is a chance FSS will create a different link in which cash you may need to edit your post. If you need any help sent me a PM and I will look into it.

    Quite right, sounds like the old folk were neglected , you usually hear of animals dying in cars of heat exhaustion, not someone's mother, father or grandparents suffering the same fate.

  18. onward to LSGG...

    Hi Wayne, very smooth shots as always, you do make XP11 look so good! BTW a yellow CH1 means you cannot autoland as the autopilot needs two channels active. (Don't ask me how to correct it though!) Joe

    A very entertaining PIREP Ros, this aircraft brings back memories of ATWCIII when this aircraft was my steed, it's great to see in in an up to date livery, we look strangely alike though Thanks for going the extra mile with the repaint Not wishing to gate crash your party but I just have to share this memory from ATWC III, 7even years ago! Now, stop dreaming Joe, and get on with it!
  20. Tree assisted landing!

    Doesn't get more STOL than this!
  21. I wonder where you would mount it with that trim wheel protruding so much? A centre console I guess.
  22. I am liking this too and hope to get a review up soon after the launch.
  23. The Only Way Is South!

    Hope you made it through the cold night OK
  24. Happy Birthday UKJim

    It's not your birthday anymore! Hope you had a great day. Joe
  25. The old ones are the best! Feel free to add your joke here but keep it clean. (Alan !) I'll start........ Two Irish hunters got a pilot to fly them to Canada to hunt moose. They managed to bag six. As they were loading the plane to return, the pilot said the plane could take only four moose. The two lads objected strongly. 'Last year we shot six. The pilot let us take them all and he had the same plane as yours.' Reluctantly, the pilot gave in and all six were loaded. However, even on full power, the little plane couldn't handle the load and went down. Somehow, surrounded by the moose bodies, Paddy and Mick survived the crash. After climbing out of the wreckage, Paddy asked Mick, 'Any idea where we are?' Mick replied, 'I think we're pretty close to where we crashed last year.' Cheers
