Memorial Day

In Flanders Fields In Flanders fields the poppies blow Between the crosses, row on row, That mark our place; and in the sky The larks, still bravely singing, fly Scarce heard amid the guns below. We are the Dead. Short days ago We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved and were loved, and now we l...

ANyone have a good Cougar profile for FSX?

After paying for enough plastic that wore and broke I went the metal way and I love this thing.

Now what I need is a good profile to play with.

Anyone out there have any ideas?

If you still have the original fs9.exe file use it, and rename the NOCD patch to back-up PRIOR to installing MS patch. Then after patched with MS upgrade reverse the process. If you dont have original fs9.exe, look for it on disc 1, place it in main directory and rename the NOCD patch backup, contin...

Here's the "BRILLIANT" part of the Army, now they are looking for an "off the shelf" aircraft to replace the Huey.

Our beloved Huey is going away....for good

Well, I just flew my last day flight in the workhorse and beloved machine which changed aviation, the way helicopters are viewed, utilized and respected worlwide.

RWY light intensity question

OK, I have some dim lights on my runways. I have gone thru and made the suggested changes "out there" to my fs9.cfg file, but all it changes is the size of the light, not the intensity. I have all 4 light settings at 1.0 and have tried many variations. Now if they were stronger that would be very ni...

I actually found a file/program that will remove any format of directx but your disc must be installed and then it restores your system to original 8.? I forgot.

Then you go and D/L the updated version, which is where I'm at, 9.0b.

It worked well to.

Question,

I had X-Plane, but the world was always water. Do you have to download the world piece by pieceto make it work.

The planes did look great and fly great, but runways in the middle of nowhere when your going into Kennedy seemed ridiculous.

Interestingly enough, that's the way it really happens. Not always but approach control knows what the traffic situation looks like and tower will change flow based upon this info.

So this is the realistic method of operation, and MS did a good job on this one.

Definitely have the plane "completely dirty" gears, full flaps, on long final. And you said you have spoilers armed, make sure you only deploy after touchdown of mains. Also as previously stated, 1100 fpm is way to much of a vertical flight path. Try 400-500 fpm and ALWAYS use the VASI, those red an...
