Hi John and a very warm welcome to Mutley's Hangar.

Just one word of warning.....

Beware the silver tongued Antipodean.

That's all I'm going to say.

Have fun and don't be too afraid to ask questions, however insignificant they may sound.

Cheers

Brian

Welcome John,

I almost agree with you on the Victor - but you still need the Vulcan to actually put one(!) bomb on the runway at the end of the mission.

But the 11 Victors, and especially the last one whose crew gave so much fuel that they were not sure that they could make it back themselves were a classic example of the British spirit. It could not be done, but they did it anyway!

I do like the UKMIL Victor though. It's not perfect (especially the VC) but a nice plane nonetheless.

Anyway have fun and I for one will not miss any opportunity to talk classic military planes. :yesa:

In which case, John, you know there is a lot of "tongue in cheek" and not taking things too seriously as far as Aussies go then.

Cheers

Andrew

 

 

Sure thing Andrew....  Can I call you Bruce? :whis:

 

 

John,

 

Only if can you state the faculty Rules in order, recite the ode, sing the Philosophers' Song.....and finally and most importantly, only if we can call you Bruce.  :P

 

Cheers

Amen and crack a tube.

 

Can I join now?  :th_blush:

 

Hi John, and welcome.

 

I see you're already up to speed with some of the inmates, so you're obviously a survivor. I look forward to seeing you around.     ^_^

 

Cheers,

 

Brian

 

P.S. Like the Lamb and Flag.....

Hi my friends,

 

I am Pedro (real name) a Portuguese and Spanish citizen, living in Spain.

 

I joined Mutley's Hangar a few days ago and I'm here to say hello :-) and introduce myself.

 

I am an enthusiastic user of FSX, but started with the old Sinclair ZX Spectrum Flight Simulator, on the 80's. Yessssss... you can call me grandpa :-)

 

Sometimes I must use FS9, due to the limitations of my laptop and sometimes I try to use X-Plane 10...

 

I am 62 y.o. and a retired ATPL

 

I loved simulation even when I was an active pilot and that will die with me...

 

Best regards

Pedro,

 

Welcome to Mutley's Hangar.  I think you will find we are all a very friendly, if not sometimes insane, bunch of guys and girls who are more than happy to share our collective knowledge.  Whilst you have about 10 years on me, I have been a self professed flight sim addict since the mid 1980's and proud of it.  I had the chance to retire early and now spend the good part of my days flying, writing reviews for Mutley's Hangar, or doing something in relation to MSFS and FSX.

 

As you will also note, I am the distant Aussie in the group.  I look forward to seeing you around the Forum.

 

Cheers

Andrew

Don't worry about the English - you're doing great.

 

That's an impressive resume - I suspect some of us will be learning a thing or three from you as we go along.

:welcomeani: Pedro,

It's great to have you on board.

Mutley's Hangar is, as I'm sure you will find out along the way, the friendliest Flight Forum on the www.

I hope you will enjoy your experience here, (I'm sure you will) and don't be afraid to ask questions.....lot's of them.

There are no stupid questions so fire away.

Don't forget to post any photographs you have of your flight-sim setup, in the 'Hardware' section. We would be happy to see them.

Looking forward to your posts.

Cheers

Everybody learn from someone.

I already learned with your excellent tutorial "Adding Waypoints to Flight Simulator", as well as some other things, in several posts. This is a nice forum.

If I can do somethig useful in the forum, i'll be glad.

Hello all! You must pardon my rudeness for not having introduced myself earlier but I couldn't resist the jokes and word association threads here and jumped straight in without a Hello. Those of you on the Just Flight forum will know me for my flippant schoolboy attempts at trying to be funny. Anyone here who have read my posts will have deduced that already.

 

A bit of background; having been born and raised on the Isle of Wight there were lots of trains, boats and planes around. The trains were Victorian hand-me-downs, the ships were the last in the line of the TransAtlantic ferrys, The old Queens Elizabeth & Mary, America, Canberra that used to sail past my home town. The real thrill was walking past the cocooned carcase of the Saro Princess flying boat on my way to school every day. Then the was the Britten-Norman Islander build at Bembridge, (there's a good sim of it).

 

Still there? I bought FS9 in a charity shop about five years ago, it sat on the shelf for a couple of months before I loaded it. Since then I've never looked back. Now on FSX with Acceleration and fly almost every day.

 

Wish list; a really good Bristol Britannia and a soon to be realised upgrade to a hardcore system, Chillblast? Wired2Fire? Alpine? Suggestions please.

 

I like this friendly, good humoured forum, thanks for having me. :D  :thum:
