  1. Heatseeker... Not.

    I'm sure you've heard of the worldwide craze which is the Nintendo Wii. You may also know that it has a game called 'Heatseeker' available, which is a military flightsim.

    Weeell, I'm now on level 2.5, and I'm noticing some significant problems with the game -

    1: Numbers. You and your
    wingman are based on an aircraft carrier called the Nemesis. Not a problem, except you appear to be the only two on the ship. And of course, the kill counts are ridiculous compared. ...

  2. New to FS (FSX)

    I am new to FS. I tried FS9 but somehow it just didn't live up to my expectations. Then my son gave me a game that I already had so I took it back to BestBuy and exchanged it for FSX and CIV4 Beyond the Sword. I thought my PC would do the job nicely so I got it.

  4. FSX World Tour Leg 7 Part A

    Dakar, Senegal - Lagos,Nigeria

    Well this leg did not go according to plan. Everything seemed ok. Pre start checks went as planned and we took off and climbed up to our cruising altitude. We turned onto course and started heading for Lagos. Not more than 20 mins had passed when I noticed problems with the engines. The temperature had dropped rapidly in the cyclinder heads and carb air temp had plumited. This caused the engines to begin icing up even though Anti Ice ...
  5. FSX World Tour, Leg 6

    Right well you may all be wondering why I am starting with Leg 6 of my world tour. Well this is simply due to the fact that in Legs 1-5 it did not occur to me to take any screenshots or make any writings.

    Leg 6.
    Agadez, Niger - Dakar, Senegal

    Very challenging flight. Bad storms all the way made for some challenging flying. The landscape was pretty flat most of the way although saw some interesting sights over the Massina region of the River ...
