    "...but a spokesmen for the airline has said there is no foundation to claims that cargo overloading has reached ridiculous levels..."
  7. My wife sent me this and it cracked me up. Most people probably won't be able to decipher the accent, but I just had to post it here anyway...
  8. I was driving to work one day when the CEO called me on my mobile. "You're promoted to assistant manager,"he said. I got such a surprise I swerved to the left. A few minutes later he called again and told me I was promoted to manager, and I got such a surprise I swerved to the right. After another few minutes he called again and told me I was promoted to regional manager. I got such a shock I swerved again and ended up on the grass verge. The police turned up and asked me what happened. I told them I'd careered off the road. (Tommy Cooper)
  9. Bay Area Dusk Tour, C152-II

    Nice flight and shots.
  10. I'm very much looking forward to their Falcon 50.
  11. Agreed. Those who criticise Carenado because they're not PMDG/A2A quality are far outnumbered by those who are just frustrated at a developer who fails again and again to get the basics right (which is why I only ever buy their products during sales). Note too that many of these complaints are fixed by other simmers, and in a short time, which goes to show that what's being asked of Carenado isn't really an awful lot.
  12. It's interesting to read this because the review I did of the Tomahawk (for the now-vanished Aerosoft Sim News) required more work than I anticipated. Not just in terms of flight testing but also in terms of putting thoughts together as in: what do I really think about X? Is it reasonable to expect Y? Am I being too hard on the developer? Am I going too easy for fear of being unfair? Etc. Nailing your colours to the mast is easy enough...the tricky bit is deciding what colours to nail. In my experience anyway. I'd link to the review but it has disappeared, although I still have my own copy.
  13. Guess the Aircraft

    It goes to show how not seeing the whole picture can fool you...I thought it was photographed from the back!
  14. Guess the Aircraft

    Agree. EA-6B Prowler I'd say.
  15. I have to agree, particularly when combined with quality control that is at best dysfunctional - from the customer's point of view - suspect it works fine for Carabeo. @Andrew Godden Andrew, you are right. I've just checked and it does work that way. I re-downloaded mine recently so maybe they fixed it in the meantime, I'm sure it didn't do that before, and Bert Pieke (see Brett's point #4 ) never mentioned it when he sent me a fix for it. That said, their aircraft look terrific, and at sale prices they aren't a bad buy. I weakened in the end and picked up the Malibu (350P) and B350i and I like them so far. Regarding the 350i gear lights, I can probably cannibalise some from another King Air and create a pop-up for that purpose. It only needs to be called up once per flight anyway...
