    Bill,

    Back in the 1970s, Cannon AFB invited GA pilots to the base (fly-in, even) to learn about military low-level routes. Among other things, the F-111s that were based there were often exceeding...

    Hmmm... I'm curious what U-control (shouldn't be regulated, since it's tethered rather low) has to do with regulation of R/C models.


    That goes WAAAY back, long before even model aircraft.

    Maybe that's true of airliners and bizjets, but they are a minority of aircraft in general, and that statement is most certainly not true of general aviation aircraft -- a (possibly surprising to...

    If hangars are full, clout would just kick some folks out, since OSH doesn't have enough hangar space to accomodate ALL of EAA members. Not a good idea, IMO. There's a limit...

    Well, consider that taildraggers have more prop clearance, and a nose wheel tends to be relatively fragile. Another factor may be that a LOT of those early aircraft had tail skids, instead of brakes,...

    Many airports have a waiting list for hangars, so I'd be surprised if OSH didn't have a very long one, indeed. Tiedowns are, of course, easier to get. But if you really need a hangar in that area,...

    And not just in films. Even in the '50s and '60s smoking was everywhere. RFD-TV has reruns of the Porter Wagoner show, and occasional audience shots show people smoking right in their seats. You...

    Many of us look at something beyond "safe and practical transportation." In fact that's (for me) one of the lesser, but nice, factors. Enjoyment of the challenges or the nostalgia or the view from...

    That's a nice article, Hal. And your comparisons with FSX are very helpful, too. Looks as if it'll be a very interesting "update" to the series, even if a bit overdue. Too bad this wasn't around a...

    Here's a list of the movies I found mentioned so far in this thread. Vim (the text editor) says there are 102 lines:

    Perhaps you mean FSX, which came out in late 2005 -- it was the last version made, so far.

    As to FS "coming back," it appears that it'll only run on X-Box or Windows 10, and will be a subscription...

    I don't have data, but I do have some experience. The AA1s have a small wing area, and not much flap, and they're not exactly over powered, either. And like all those Grumman American planes, that...

    To start with, it isn't the "classical IFR pilots" who prevent you. Second, I might agree that what you propose would be great IF you can guarantee that those "simple short-term IMC conditions" will...
