  1. So much mayhem that the last leg hasn't been posted! Looking forward to the next world navigation. Hopefully I'll be able to do a few legs (even though sim time has been pratically 0 hours this year!)
  2. Great shots Peter. Looks like you enjoyed it!
  3. Happy Birthday Joe!
  4. "This [grounding] followed the discovery of cracks in part of a low-pressure (LP) turbine section destined for one of the CFM Leap-1B engines that power the new aircraft." There's a good article (where the above quote came from) on Aviation Week Network (free registration required, which gives you a good newsletter every day of top stories)
  5. I'm always suspicious of these claims (both ways), when we don't know the exact paramteres of the test. There was a leaked LM pilot report a couple of years ago discussing a lack of energy in a close dogfight situation, against a F-15 (I think) with tanks on. However, I would guess a good F-35 pilot wouldn't get anywhere near a close dogfight situation, rather stand off and fire BVR. How often it would be required to do air-to-air combat is another matter. It was always said by Canberra pilots that they could run rings around a fighter at high altitude - until the fighter decided to go 5 miles away and just use a missile
  6. Interesting. I wonder whether it is the Unreal 4 engine being used? Looks like it. Moving in the right direction
  7. I'm pretty happy where I am at the moment, although it's only a college work placement at present. Doing train and timetabling planning in Irish Rail (although just finished a two week transfer for a wheel project)
  8. Cracking view and congratulations Ed!
  9. Great shots Alan. Prefered the diesels myself
  10. Statement from CHC Helicopters available here: Media are reporting difficult conditions at sea for recovery of anything
  11. Sad news to report as the wreckage is found. Rescue 116, the Dublin-based S-92 for the Irish Coast Guard, crashed approximately 9 nm off the Mayo coast near Blacksod lighthouse whilst coming in the refuel for top cover duties. 4 on board, with the Captain (Dara Fitzpatrick) having been rescued but sadly dying on reaching the hospital. Pilot Mark Duffy and winchmen Ciarán Smith and Paul Ormsby are still missing. I think all of them featured in the RTÉ fly-on-the-wall documentary a few years ago on the Waterford-based unit, Rescue 117 The rescue it was covering for (an aill crewman on a fishing trawler) was successful however. Luckily the media here seem to have been very respectful with little speculation on their part. The black boxes are pinging, and a fuel tank was found. RIP. At least they died doing something they wanted
  12. Fascinating pictures Sam! Although Alan - EMA comes to life at night and is relatively quiet during the day!
  13. PMDG release the 747-400 V2 FSX - P3D V3.x -
  14. Slightly belated Happy Birthday!
  15. Happy Birtrhday Mr. Plan-G!
