    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...

    Apologies, Hal -- guess I'm remembering a year too early; looks as if my age is getting in the way.

    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...

    Actually, they both stem from that source, Ron. The Bell System was still using both at least into the 1970s. And not just the plug/jack, but also the electrical characteristics (impedance, etc.)...

    I've not had access to that P-51, but over the years I've seen that FS flight models often leave a lot to be desired. For all the beauty in the appearance, the behavior is sometimes defying the laws...
