  1. Nice shots, I am glad you'r only flying over Walkers River. The place is full of crocodiles, but good for Baramundi fishing
  2. Well deserved Congratulation , this was an outstanding shot. I was amazed about all those wonderful shots submitted by everyone .Ian, definitely. next contest should have also a runner up.. Just to give my chicken a chance ! Ha ha
  3. I found them on this web site and I copied a few gems ( not sue if they are jokes or happened in real life ) http://www.schiratti.com/humour.html Tower: Have you got enough fuel or not? Pilot: Yes.Tower: Yes what?? Pilot: Yes, SIR Cessna 152: "Flight Level Three Thousand, Seven Hundred" Controller: "Roger, contact Houston Space Center" Tower: "...and for your information, you were slightly to the left of the centerline on that approach." Speedbird: "That's correct; and, my First Officer was slightly to the right" Controller: "USA353 (sic) contact Cleveland Center 135.60.(pause)Controller: "USA353 contact Cleveland Center 135.60!"(pause)Controller: "USA353 you're just like my wife you never listen!"Pilot: "Center, this is USA553, maybe if you called her by the right name you'd get a better response!"
  4. Thanks Mickel for the tips . I did a lot of touch and Go without any rte loaded in the fmc or other settings .Just free flying. I did the landings on Coffs Harbour ( no ils) Most ladings where pretty successful. But still missed a few. Should the condition lever be at full rotation or 900 rev is sufficient. I just finished the fly from Coffs to Tamworth and that was successful I was happy with my landing On another subject have you ever flown in shared cockpit? IW001 Ian and I are trying to set one up but we have to overcome a hurdle of problems Best regards Charles
  5. Thank you VH_KDK . Much appreciated and Yes the Clarence looks mighty with me on the banks . Well my post in tongue in cheek had some funny reactions, especially the ones from John Dow Take care all Charles
  6. Amazing resemblance. It shows the high quality of the scenery and inevitably the hard work of ORBX
  7. I seen so many Happy Birthday on this forum so I wish everyone all the best on that special day. But when my turn came.... Silence. Luckily the dog licked me at 5 am. But who cares after all I already had so many birthdays in my life, I think I must have past my quota on the other day.:) Cheers Charles
  8. Interesting background history. No wonder the French made a song about the Island of Wight . I do not know if an English translation exist ("Wight Is Wight" is a French song by Michel Delpech. It sold over one million copies, and was awarded a gold disc. Released in 1969 it became a big hit in France and internationally. The hippy-influenced song mentions Bob Dylan and Donovan as tribute.) Nice pics Renault
  9. Thank you for the video link. I will have a look. I once told my children for every hour I fly, I spend 3 to 4 hours on the tarmac
  10. This seems to be my story exactly Nick
  11. Sorry Jack I never noticed it before . Yes on closing P3d flashes a "not responding". But since P3D always start again without a hiccup, I never took any attention . Thanks to bring this bug to my attention Charles
