Re: Two Bones

Thanks for the save John...was about to admit being an old ground pounder having a senior moment in response to firebird .... it appears to be a painted feature on the right hand bird, but dont know what, if anything, it signifies...although it does appear to be where the main gear are.

Two Bones

https://strategypage.com/military_photos/military_photos_20200727213534.aspx Looking at this photo and noticed a distinct difference between the two aircraft. Was wondering if anyone here can educate me as to whether the underside difference is simply a difference in paint schemes or if the darkened...

Mike...That comment was priceless, my friend!!! Literally, made my day...On the more serious side, what a mess that fire has made of such a grand ship. It will be interesting to read the investigation reports as they come out in the future...

Re: Coronavirus/Covid-19 How are you doing?

IMHO...Trump is more worried about the economy than anything else. Granted this is a concern and deserves attention, but not at the expense of individual lives of the citizenry. I have several family members who work at hospitals in different parts of the US. One is an RN (Wife) and another is an Ad...

Re: Coronavirus/Covid-19 How are you doing?

All good here in SW Kentucky at moment. Wife is a RN at a hospital in this area and my boss's sister is an RN as well in Maryland. The hospitals are all converting as much admin space as they can into extra ICU wards, preparing for the worst to happen within the next 10 to 14 days.

Re: Re-igniting the FS9 v FSX v P3D

Still using FS9 here...due to age of myself and my computer, no plans to upgrade. But, I do understand the desire/need for the hobby to move forward.

Re: Will This Work . . . . .

Lol...Brings back a memory for me from my time on active duty in the US Army back in the early 1980's. I was attending the US Air Force Strategic Deployment Course at Tinker AFB and saw a plywood mock-up of a C-5B Cockpit that pilots used for practice and procedures certifications. Back then compute...

Re: PAI Installer error

I have had similar problems with both the PAI installer and WOAI installer. I found the error in my cases to be caused by the installers requiring DOT NET 1.1 support. Each time windows 10 has an update I run a couple of registry cleaners to get win10 to allow it to work again. That said, I have all...

Re: Alphasim USS Enterprise

John,

I have it. Will be glad to send a copy to you. I don't have the original zip file any longer, but do have all the files installed in fs9 on my system and a backup of the files.

I'll dig it out for you later today and send it however you want.

Re: JYAI C-130J Specials

Just a guess, but they look like E models to me. Note the wire going from the fuselage to the tail structure on the bottom picture (134).

Re: Anybody Have Info Please?

Very cool guys!! Thanks for the quick information and paint to boot...Would never have thought to associate a C-130 unit with an RB-57 unit past or present.

I quess this is or was fairly common practice in the AF to jump between a/c types over time?

Anybody Have Info Please?

Wondering if anyone has any information (what it represents) on the special paint job on this C-130H out of Little Rock AFB... May be a good candidate for a repaint if worthy of the time and effort of the resident repaint geniuses! https://strategypage.com/military_photos/military_photos_20190302131...
