  1. I'm surprised no one has picked up this as yet. It occurred on the 15th of this month. An approach accident near Teterboro Airport (KTEB). See: https://www.google.ca/search?q=teterboro+crash&oq=tet&aqs=chrome.0.69i59j0j69i57j0l3.4424j0j7&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8 Condolences to families and friends of the two pilots who lost their lives in this accident.
  2. Thanks John, I still had the devil's own time finding the file - despite the, literal, map that you showed me. A search for the string gps6.zip or just gps6 returned nothing. Even when I went to FSX - FSX Panels nothing showed up until I cut the search back to gps. That returned four pages. The file we're referring to was on the first page. I'm using a VPN, but I doubt that would have any bearing. I was logged in to the Flightsim site in all cases. Ah well! Once again MH (and @allardjd) comes to the rescue of the technically challenged.
  3. Thanks JA, Lookin' in all the wrong places......
  4. No sign of a file with that name on Flightsim (or in the library) - gps6.zip
  5. I seem to recall a Canadian Interceptor that was scrapped for the same reasons. 1959 - almost sixty years ago.
  6. Your new platform is performing well? Thanks for the updates.
  7. No. I didn't realise that AS16 is not put out by REX - maybe I should have Googled it, eh?. The link you sent took me to the dev's website and their reseller(s) like JF want $60 for the P3D version. As I already have REX Essentials + O/D, I felt this was a bit too steep just to have decent RW Wx at altitude. Remember, I was going in to this to use it with the PMDG 777 which I still have not purchased. You're right - the REX part of the equation is a smokin' deal.
  8. Thanks JA, I'll check it out right now.
  9. I see that Rex is offering some good discounts, extending through April 19. I have Rex Essentials + O/D, but I note @mutley comments about Texture Direct and I might take this opportunity to pick it up. The other part of the recommendation is to buy Active Sky 16 (not listed on the Rex site as being on sale). Question is: Is this advice still current? Or have things changed again? I note that there appears to be quite a bit of duplication within the Rex product range. Also AS16 does not appear to be available, unless under another name.
  10. Simstarter might be your best bet. Be very careful what you (manually) move out of your simobjects folder. The default aircraft in FSX often supply information to other aircraft, especially in the instrument packages. You could run in to the situation, for instance, where the aircraft you're trying to fly is looking for gauge references in the C-172 file. I'd be willing to bet P3D is similar, but don't know that for a fact.
  11. Ice Gauge - freeware from Flightsim.com - good one to have. I fly the C-208 quite a bit and it is not rated for autopilot use in icing conditions. Good to have that extra warning. SALS looks like fun, too. I especially the DME (I think that's what it is) readout on the same gauge.
  12. Thanks for that @dave evans. Let me be the first to welcome you to MH. Have fun on the MEBAR.
  13. Here's one for our Oz friends: An elderly man in Queensland had owned a large property for several years. He had a dam in one of the lower paddocks where he had planted mango and avocado trees. The dam had been fixed up for swimming when it was built and he also had some picnic tables placed there in the shade of the fruit trees. One evening the old farmer decided to go down to the dam to look it over, as he hadn't been there for a while. He grabbed a ten litre bucket to bring back some fruit. As he neared the dam, he heard voices shouting and laughing with glee. As he came closer he saw it was a bunch of young women skinny-dipping in his dam. He made the women aware of his presence and they all went to the deep end. One of the women shouted to him, 'We're not coming out until you leave!' The old man frowned, 'I didn't come down here to watch you ladies swim naked or make you get out of the dam naked.' Holding the bucket up he said, 'I'm here to feed the crocodile.' Moral : Old men may walk slow, but they can still think fast.
  14. Aha! I detect a JDA online again.
  15. We Met at the Bar Having already downed a few power drinks, she turns around, faces him, looks him straight in the eye and says, "Listen here, good looking. I will screw anybody, anytime, anywhere, their place, my place, in the car, front door, back door, on the ground, standing up, sitting down, naked or with clothes on...It doesn't matter to me. I just love it." His eyes now wide with interest, he responds, "No kidding... I'm in Government too. Are you federal or provincial?”
