  1. Both short-term and long-term efforts are underway to begin transitioning to electric aircraft. Even major commercial aircraft manufacturers, such as Boeing and Airbus, are involved. See Faced with global warming, aviation aims to turn green
  2. I've taken quite a bit of interest in this thread. I was in the Marine Corps Air Wing, and one of my active duty stations was the Marine Corps Air Station at Beaufort, South Carolina. I was there for a couple of years, and I was excited to learn that British pilots have been training in F-35Bs at Beaufort. I did a screenshot of what it might look like when the first F-35B arrives at Marham. I'll have some new FSX AI flights to set up, that's for sure!
  3. Congratulations on a winning screenshot of winners!
  4. The National Transportation Safety Board reported that when the engine and window blew, the 737 tilted to the left at a forty-one-degree angle. That being the case, I'm sure everyone is thankful that Tammie Jo Shults was there to be immediately on top of the situation. When she was in the US Navy, Tammie Jo Shults was more than an F/A-18 Hornet pilot: She was an F/A-18 instructor. Absolutely outstanding flying, Captain Shults! Tammie Jo Shults
  5. In America, VW has a huge subsidiary called "Electrify America." It's been reported that the first phase of their plan calls for 2,800 charging stations. Big retailer Walmart has come aboard by requesting Electrify America charging stations for many of its stores. Here is Electrify America's Plan
  6. Ready for Takeoff In the Cockpit Another Livery Takeoff Night Ops By the Dawn's Early Light
  7. I found the "FSX/P3D McDonnell Douglas F4D Phantom II" at FlightSim.com, Matt.
  8. Congratulations Chris and Mike!
  9. On final, in Canada, in a Beechcraft 390 Premier 1A. Hovering (and shivering) at Sheremetyevo. Taxiing for a dawn takeoff at Dusseldorf.
  10. Congratulations, Alan. I'm glad to know you're enjoying that Keystone, too. It had a wingspan of 74 ft. 9 inches (22.78 meters). That was one big biplane bomber!
  11. I've created FSX freeware that enables use of AI aircraft with Aspen Extended 1.2 payware. The latest version of the freeware (currently version 1_3) can always be downloaded from FSX Links If you have an earlier version of my KASE software installed, I urge you to download and install the latest version. Replacing versions is easy, since only a single file needs to be replaced. The latest version is clean and stable. I am aware of no remaining problems. By itself, Aspen Extended 1.2 contains no taxiways that connect the runway with parking spaces. I created "KASE for AI" to add taxiways for AI aircraft to use.
  12. Congratulations! This was a fun category for the screenshot contest!
  13. Thanks, guys. Ha! I guess that I found a property in Florida that Alan might like for a second home!
  14. Oresund Bridge and Drogden Tunnel connect two of my favorite countries: Sweden (background) and Denmark. The Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel is in Virginia. The aircraft flew out of Oceana NAS.
  15. A big "congratulations" goes out to you, Alan!
