Re: Sun flashes green.

35 or so years ago my oldest sister, after finally getting a drivers license, told me she could tell when a red light was going to change because "it flashes green" I had been experimenting with retinal retention, so I knew why: The sudden absense of light, especially bright light, causes an image to be temporarily retained in the mind of the image in the opposite color. You're staring at a green light at a 60's vintage signal operated by electromagnetic relays. The lamp power is cut for less then a second to avoid surge when changing to the green bulb. Too fast for normal visual discrimination to detect because of lingering effect, but the mind is faster, and a color oriented mind (she was an artist) will detect the momentary absense of red light as green light. There's a large component of red in sunlight. Irgo!

Try this if you have an electronic flash unit. Sit in a familliar room looking at something on the wall. Have a friend turn off the lights and flash the flash. Don't move your head or eyes. After a few flashes, you will retain that image longer and longer. Now, if you also have a gullible friend, stand next to each other for a few flashes. Then, right after a flash, tell him to touch your head and immediately duck. He'll reach to the retained image he 'sees' and touch nothing but air. SPOOKY!!

Thats a cool little experiment (rubs eyes)...but the thread is going astray. How about starting a new topic with little experiments of such nature in the MA forum? Would be cool...

Well sometimes you find yourself with a touch of crosswind and after lining up on runway the wind will blow you off your approach to one side or the other. Say you find yourself off to the left and need to go right to line back up. Lower right wing slightly and feed in a touch of left rudder, you will side slip back to center. Depending on how much of a crosswind you may find yourself needing to hold the side slip. Gusting crosswinds are a nightmare.

Maintain alignment using the rudder - again, gently! If you need to input larger changes, you're not in a stabilized approach.
