Hoping you're all having a wonderful Holiday season...mine's good so far, except for the fact that I've been sick all week. Oh well, gives me a little time to fly!
I took Rick Piper's fantastic Vanguard out again, and had a very nice flight from Bangor Maine to Gander, Newfoundland. I figure I'll head out across the ocean tomorrow!!
Enjoy the pics!

Excellent shots! And what a beautifull aircraft... now that I'm re-starting my virtual aircraft collection I must take that one into my hangar!
Hope you get well!

I'm rather fond of this model myself :) You can get it here at Rick's Paintshop:
I'm going to see my doctor tomorrow, hopefully he'll give me some good drugs to knock this out :)!
At least I'm better than my airplane...this is all that remains of her at East Midlands...:(
Cheers, and Happy Holidays,

Great shots Chuck, but what capital crime did that plane do since they beheaded it?

Thanks Kristoffer, Tom, and Steve. Glad you liked the pictures.
Steve, I'm using David Maltby's Comet panel for now, although I did download the one Rick Piper is recommending on his site...I just haven't installed it yet.
And yes, I hope to be feeling better too!

Thanks Morgan...I'm trying! It's been a week, thought it'd be gone by now like everyone else's but noooooooo.........I gotta get the one that sticks! Oh well.

Andre, I don't know about getting into the cockpit of my poor beheaded bird, it would appear to be fenced-off. Perhaps someone whose been there knows?
Steve... so you're saying stick with the Comet panel?
12-23-2002, 10:41 AM
I think i would actually Chuck yes. Purely MHO of course..

Thanks Steve, I'll take your advice! :)

:-eek very nice Chuck.
Does Rick Pipers Vanguards only come as a package, or can I download them seperately?.

Thanks Stefan and Ashley.
Stefan, it's a shame that you never WILL see one either, unless you see the one on display at East Midlands, (not just the nose, they have a complete one too!)
Ashley, thanks! As far as I know you have to get the whole set...but with all the British birds available in the package I think you'd be really pleased with it!
Merry Christmas you guys!

Lovely pix as usual Chuck what ails you mate? I still believe anything can be fixed with a handfull of Vitamin c and b and a bottle of "Famous Grouse" if it does not cure it a least you won't remember it.
Merry Christmas mate.
Perfect Chuck, very nice shots!!

I appreciate all your comments, and just so you know...It turns out that I've been suffering with a sinus infection, and with the help of Zithromax, I will have a Merry Christmas! :D
