  1. The subject line is an old Irish turf-laying joke (!!). Unusually for me - here's just the one: Fokker F50 over Gloucestershire: Adam (and yes - I do belong to the Green Party!!).
  2. Another little gem from Aeroplane Heaven: the Bristol Bulldog. FTX ENG on a hazy summer's morning ... Adam.
  3. This particular Hunter actually did this in RL!! Eat your heart out, Jack! This is ORBX FTX ENG with the excellent Dave Garwood freeware Hunter. Heading back to base ... to face the music!!! Adam.
  4. From Walney... on a murky, damp Autumn day I fancied a bit of summer sun Later in the day, to show off the trees and terrain a little more. Thank you for looking
  5. Hi Ladies and Gents, Another service pack for FTX England is about to come. It will provide some new visual features for VFR flight and fixes to previously reported anomalies. This time, you'll be able to visit closely the Windsor Castle and its surroundings (a complete rework of my freeware scenery with lots of additions). For ones having P3Dv3/v4, SpeedTree is making it living along the famours Long Walk ! The Royal Lodge King George III and the Long Walk (powered by SpeedTree for P3Dv3/v4) Windsor Castle from the South
  6. Like a moth, I suspect this Lysander shouldn't be out during the day: I managed to persuade my old FEX to do the skies/clouds for P3Dv4 (but don't touch the water!!!). Also - great to have a rather ancient payware add-on working fine in P3dv4. Adam.
  7. Hi All, I need some advice as usual, I am flying around happily but I notice that my autogen objects and scenery disappear and when I pause it redraws. I have attached a few images please see that for each one the scenery redraws the objects like trees, buildings etc. I am running the newest NVidia Driver Any ideas??????
  8. A Foster Wickner Wicko to be precise, no I had never heard of one either. G-AFJB was built in 1938 and of the 10 Wickos made it is the only survivor. 1. Here we are at Goodwood ready for a short flight to Shoreham. 2. Passing the control tower it is a pleasant but breezy day. 3. Trundling down 28, almost airborne. 4. 5. Glorious Goodwood and a change of plans. Today I will follow the South Downs instead of the normal coastal flight. 6. The River Arun and the town of Arundel. 7. On the outskirts of Worthing
  9. Not the best of days to be flying. 1. Not the original RG333, which crashed in Germany in August 1945. This one is really G-AIEK painted with invasion stripes. 2. Up and away from Damyn's Hall 3. At Tilbury Container Port. 4. The BP refinery and terminal at Canvey Island. 5. The World's longest pier at Southend. 6. On approach to Southend flying into 40-45kts progress is very slow and turbulent. 7. The industrial estate at Rochford. 8. Hanging in the air at about 20kts. 9. Down, sto
  10. On Saturday July 19th 1975 I flew in my first turboprop aircraft. It was G-AXVG an HS.748 belonging to Dan Air. Justflight have just released their rendition of the 748 and one of the liveries depicts G-AXVG but in Skyways colours. I cannot resist adding to my hangar of British airliners. 1. Victor Gulf at EGHH Bournemouth 2. Lining up on RWY 26. 3. Flying past the old BAC works, the runway has been extended since 1975. 4. Over Moordown and Castle Lane West. 5. The Isle of Purbeck and Swanage. 6.
  11. A couple of shots from Compton Abbas. 1. 2,
  12. A flight around Plymouth to see if we can find The Hoe. 1. No not you, wrong flight. 2. Nor you, but tempted. Here have you got a twin? 3. Oh, only this twin, although the Twin Pioneer waiting at EGHD is beautiful too. Let us see what we can find. 4. Here we are at Saltash on the River Tamar with the Tamar Road Bridge and the Royal Albert Rail Bridge 5. Two in one go. 6. One of the ferries that operate to Santander and Roscoff at Millbay Docks. 7. Right by the port wingtip is the area known as Plymou
  13. ................but I have found The Needles. 35. They can be found standing off the western end of the Isle of Wight along with the light house. A familiar sight to me when I lived in the area so long ago.
  14. Here is a twilight flight from Compton Abbas to Southampton. 1. A few of the happy passengers waiting to enjoy a memorable flight. 2. Taxiing out this magnificent old DH.89 Dragon Rapide at Compton Abbas. 3. Trundling down the runway and about to lift off. 4. Close to Sixpenny Handley. 5. In the distance are the lights of Bournemouth, here at Ringwood we pick up the A31 at it's junction with the infamous A338 Spur Road 6. On the western fringes of the New Forest at Picket Post. 7. Approaching Emery Down, on the h
  15. G-AMAE is making a trip from Cardiff and heading south to Guernsey. 1. Setting off from Cardiff. 2. Across the Bristol Channel approaching the Somerset coast. 3. The Quantock Hills, Somerset. 4. A few interesting things here, semi square windows and a pressurised fuselage, we all know what that can lead to. Curtains on the windows, nice touch! Lastly the first three rows of seats face to the rear of the plane. 5. Now at Abbotsbury, Dorset. Chesil Beach, a huge shingle beach with the thin strip or water called The Fleet. 6. Leavi
  16. Flying in England over Dartmoor. 34.
  17. A quick trip from Compton Abbas to Exeter via Bournemouth. 1. Too busy taking shots and nearly ran out of runway. 2. I like the contra-prop Spitfire as is does not swing on take off. 3. Rapidly climbing out of EGHA. 4. A last sight of Compton Abbas through the clouds before heading for the coast. 5. Over Ferndown with EGHH in sight. 6. Crossing the coast at Boscombe with Wessex Way snaking through the suburbs. 7. Passing Anvil Point and Swanage. 8. Too much low cloud to see Weym
  18. The Spitfire prototype made it's first flight 80 years ago today from Eastleigh Airport near Southampton. As luck would have it I have the plane, K5054, in it's original form from the Justflight Battle of Britain package. 1. No undercarriage doors on the prototype. 2. No grass runway at Eastleigh either. 3. A tail skid was preferred to a tail wheel. 4. The railway works at Eastleigh, cannot see the Merchant Navy Class locomotive puffing around today, although they were first built in 1941. 5. The junction of the M3 and M27 at
  19. I had been thinking about buying the Dove for a while, I wasn't interested in their introductory offer of the repaint pack as none of them appealed to me. Anyway, I was looking at the freeware on the Flightsim.com site the other night and I came upon a wonderful repaint by Peter Watkins of the CAFU Dove G-ANUT. Their fleet of brightly coloured Doves, the others being G-ANOV/NUV and NUW were regular visitors to Hurn in the early 70s, indeed I first logged this one on the 29th August 1970. Never in my wildest dreams did I think then that one day I would be flying this plane into B
  20. It is great to see no fewer than 5 English airports with new installers last night. The first on I have installed is Goodwood and I have just done a circuit in the Paramotor 1. Off we go and it is into Madgwick Corner. Some of my earliest memories are of going to race meetings here in the late 50s early 60s. 2. Heading up towards Fordwater. 3. Through Fordwater. 4. Into St Mary's. This is where Stirling Moss had his near fatal accident in 1962. 5. Looking back at St Mary's and Fordwater. 6. Entering into
  21. Been a day of downloading and installing programmes with new P3DV3.0 installers. Firstly overnight downloaded Wales and Scotland and installed them this morning. Then after lunch discovered on the Justflight site some of the planes I have are now V3.0 compliant. Then to top it off the 2 FlyTampa airports I have now can be used with V3. 1. Leaving YSSY with a huge smile on my face. Could not use this on V2.4 single figure FPS even with most of the goodies left off but now great performance with everything ticked. 2. 3. Now leaving Kai Tak which has always been a great performer
  22. How many of you who are old enough can remember where they were 50 years ago today? It is a date and day that has stuck in my mind for some reason. Dad had 2 days earlier picked up his new Ford Corsair GT and as he had to go to Redhill we went for a ride. Quite to my surprise after his appointment we headed off to Gatwick Airport for a few hours. Very different from today, it was then very quiet with not too many movements. Aircraft I can remember seeing were mostly BUA 1-11's and Caledonian Britannias Don't have any of those aircraft on P3D so I will have to go with th
  23. Another flight in FTX England P3DV3.0, this time from East Midlands to Humberside. The title does not refer to the Rolls Royce Trent engine but the River that this flight will follow for some of the way. 1 Taking off from East Midlands and over flying the M1 motorway. 2. EGBN Nottingham Airport wth West Bridgford and Nottingham in view. Also the River Trent can be seen. 3. EGXY Syerston. 4. Newark and the A1 Great North Road. 5. High Marnham Power Station. In the distance are Cottam and West Burton power stations. 6. EGXP Scampton made famous by being the base for 617 Squadron. 7. The
  24. After some malicious rumours being started about the legality of one of my aeroplanes I decided to post some pics of my Baron which you can see is all above board. The rumour spreaders shall remain nameless but their initials are Gumbypickett and Bermuda425. Thanks guys and hope you are having a great day. These shots were taken over the Isle of Purbeck in Dorset. 1. Poole Harbour near Corfe Castle. 2. Near East Lulworth. 3. Weymouth Bay. Hope you enjoyed looking.
  25. Installed FTX ENG into P3Dv3.0 and time to see how it works. First flight is from EGHH Bournemouth. I lived in Bournemouth from 1966-75 and in those days it was a great town. Spent time fishing from the beaches and piers with regular trips to the airport with binoculars, VHF radio and note book. Only wish I had taken a camera. 1. Taking off from Rwy26 with the old BAC factory on the left. 2. Over Wessex Way with Queen's Park Golf Course. 3. Boscombe and Bournemouth piers jut into the bay with Poole Harbour in the background. 4. The Isle of Wight dead ahead. 5. Over
