Re: Michael Beetham Conservation Centre Nov 2010

Great shots Rob, somewhere everyone should visit, though personally I'm holding off until the Dornier arrives :)

I might be being a little bit dense here, but I assume there were more (bits of) aircraft there?

Re: Haha you're named after a car...

He also argued that all of France's thousands of Zoes could be affected, with playground teasing and, as they grow older, comments in bars such as "Can I see your airbags?" or "Can I shine your bumper?"


I wonder what "Zoe"'s reaction to those chat-up lines would be...

Re: Thruster T600 Sprint Flying near Gresford

Considering the weather and the reasonable calm winds, I'd expect to see loads of GA up and about today, making the most of the weather before it all goes wrong tomorrow!

Still, an awfully vague request considering there are almost 100 T600's current on the UK register!

Sam,
Google "FS9.1 No-CD" - FSNordic should appear - Also might want to make sure you have FS9.1 installed, available on the MS site.

And I should state EGUL and EGUN are also ICAO codes. XLK and MHZ are IATA ones, like the ones you find on your luggage labels.

Re: UKAR Jargon Buster

It's the use of airport codes that gets my goat. To be honest, whether you're a registration collector, photographer, model maker, etc. then airport codes are pretty integral For which reason? I tend not to talk in codes - I refer to places by their names....? Only time I've ever needed them was to...

My copy of AVG 2011 is great, resplendent in its box on my desk. Avast! Free and a mediocre firewall is all you need. Even MSSE does the job better than AVG, unless they've fundamentally improved the logic engine in it!

You needed to crop a little bit more to the left Ben, you've very nearly chopped the wing, and there's too much dead space to the right of the image, in my opinion :)
