  1. Oceans 11 brings back memories but I can't rank well remember what the are/were!
  2. I see. Thank you. I was thinking I might be a broach to give to someone but couldn't imagine why anyone would give jewellery to Nick.
  3. Is that English they speak? Sounds more like Cockney to me! Oh....and who's crowing now?!!
  4. Err, Been pondering this. I give up. What's a 'cameo' Jack?
  6. Ok- I've had a look at Air Haulers 2 and it really doesn't do the same job as FS Passengers. From other forums I gather the developer of FS Passengers is ill so it looks as if it'll stagnate for the time being.
  7. I hope this is allowed Nick. Does anyone know where I can get a version similar to FS Passengers that works with P3Dv4? Thanks
  8. Thanks for the info Ken and the kind offer to fly together. I've had a look at Pilot Edge and have decided to give it a miss for the time being. As I said I fly mostly in Western Europe. If it was available for the whole world rather than for a relatively small part of the US, I would be tempted but as it is I don't want to feel restricted to the one area. Thanks again.
  9. Ok - thanks. I've decided I'm going to stay. I'm having too much fun here to want to leave. I think I like it better than the other place sounds like!
  10. Thanks for that Ken. I'll take a look and let you know how I get on. However, I like variety and never know in the Western World where I am going to fly next so I need a wide ranging ATC that'll cover that. The truth is I spend most of my flying time over Europe and don't spend a lot of time flying in America.
  11. I've got another moan now. I've just had a most enjoyable flight from Cheyenne Regl to Jackson Hole. Unfortunately, the flight was spoiled at the end because the b....y.controller didn't know the level of the surrounding land or the airfield! She addled my brains with her ridiculous nagging to descend to 7000' when the mountainous ground I was flying over was 9000'! The airport itself was at 7,500' or thereabouts! If traffic controllers don't know the terrain and altitude of the ground, why on earth do they presume to give us altitude instructions at all especially when we are landing. I don't know, but I'm assuming this doesn't happen in real life so why have they built such stupid commands into the sim'?! I think I'll go and read my Kindle. John
  12. Carenado Phenom 350 Ken. I like it because its quite quick and has an impressive auto pilot!
  13. There is a program called something like Passenger something or other. I had it with FSX and it wasn't bad. Doesn't seem to be available any more.
  14. In the sim' wolfko. Goodness me, Rodger. I dread to think! Can you imagine it?!! Keif'& Kev' would have managed to crash it!
  15. Just made a flight from Chicago to Cheyenne. I recently read a story where a mail order bride in the late 1800's did this journey by train and stagecoach and then continued on to Fort Fetterman (which no longer exists) where she met her rancher husband (to be). It took her some weeks. To be honest, the story was was more interesting than the flight. Now-a-days it seems its all farmland. Hundreds of miles of it virtually all the way. A long flight and dead booring!
  16. And, here's another thing. I've wasted the whole afternoon so far struggling to scan and print a document for my wife. Top page - perfectly simple - Reverse side bloody near impossible! Sorry chaps, although I've finally done it using the scanner software rather than the computer, it leaves me completely astonished that they ever got anything up in the air using bloody computers!!!
  17. I have a really fabulous co-pilot named Sue. Her voice is like silk and her face and body well....wow. I wonder if one day I'll meet her?!
  18. It was my replacement hip that finally stopped me playing. It was just too painful and it got embarrassing when the Pro's had to come out in a buggy to fetch me in cos' the pain was too great and anyway, I had lost all my puff anyway by the time I got to the 16th! Just come back from having an echocardiogram on my heart. It's quite strange hearing your own heart beat and a bit worrying when the sound stops. Momentarily you wonder if your bloody heart has stopped!
  19. Are you joking Doug? I went round to the pro's shop the other day and borrowed a driver just to swing it outside. I swung it once and the bloody thing nearly pulled me over! Luckily the young assistant Pro' was watching, burst out laughing and helped me back into the shop and sat me down. He got a glass of water for me. As I got my breath back and recovered I thanked him he said; 'You need more practice!'
  20. I should have mentioned that when he was much younger every Sunday morning I played golf with Justin Rose. He was a member of out regular fourball. Smashing young chap.
  21. Thanks Nick. I'll never get the hang of bloody computers!
