Hi everybody,

I have to apologize again that I wasn't heard from again - but after getting my new rig close to christmas and after reinstalling all software components around New Year I got a complex system breakdown including a damaged graphics card :( . Work of a month for nothing :cry:

So currently, I am imploringly waiting for the new card. Furthermore, it will take for sure about another 2 weeks to get all stuff back installed as before.
So please be patient, the project is not dead!
Regards, Manfred.

Hi Paul (64) or all others who are familiar with RAF Brüggen those days,

does anybody know which kind of windsocks were used there? Red or orange - or any other details please?
Regards, Manfred.

I have to add a question to my request: So many experts around here had been on RAF air bases in real life, you can tell me for sure something about the standards of the used windsocks.
I will start next week to add some few more SODE animations, so the windsocks will be the latest basic objects at RAFB...
Regards, Manfred.

I am trying to think about my CGY days. Trouble is although my trade was ATC I never actually worked in a tower. Wing Ops, Sqn Ops and LATCC Mil.

What I think was the case is that they were seemingly a bright Orange-Red when brand new but I seem to recall that the CGY was a very faded tatty orange thing. My guess would be that the RAF ordered them from one place and when they faded they ended up being a pale orange.
Sorry, can't be more specific than that.

Morning Manschy as far as I remember it was orange as with most RAF bases.

Yes, they were orange - and yes, they do fade! Windsocks come in a number of varieties according to the maximum wind they will show at full deflection. IIRC, RAF windsocks are 30-35kt, as that accords with the maximum crosswind of most RAF aircraft. The cone itself is normally a 2.5m/8ft nylon type. Most GA field windsocks show about 15kts at full deflection.
