Meh. I like randomness. I also enjoy using it randomly, like in this blog.
Well, I found something new at Beccles Airfield, a IFR simulator dating back to the seventies, I think. I've had a few goes and it's impressive for the little technology available at the time. It has real instruments and controls, all worked with cables and pulleys with the odd bit of electrical circuit to get everything 'talking' to each other. Me and a fellow employee hope to fix it all up to a computer and enable it to run on Microsoft Flight Simulator with local VFR Photo scenery
Once again, I was at Beccles Airfield, doing my bit to help with operations. I went refueling aircraft when needed and practiced radio work under supervision as I don't yet have the piece of paper to say I'm capable of it.

So, why is Safari so great? Well, there's a nice load of features that Microsoft never got.
Apple claim Safari is the fastest browser available.
I didn't realise how quick I was at repainting aircraft. An hour after I posted last night, I'd finished. I then made some tweaks on it and added a few details.
Here was the original from the first flight for those who missed it on the Screenshot Forum.
Here it is, as of this morning, with sponsorship logos. I'm going to
I've decided to do another repaint! This time, it's purely fictional. I'm currently painting a Christen Eagle, the one from Long Island Classics. Here is the fuselage at the moment:
It's coming on quite nicely and I'm improving it all the time.
