    It was great -- and it was neat to watch the docking this morning, too. I wish Heinlein (and a few others) could have seen this, the first commercially operated people carrier in space (other than a...

    Hmmm... What DOES it do on the instruments? It should have no effect whatsoever, since the NAV radio on a localizer frequency ignores the OBS and there is nothing else that is affected by the...

    When you initially file a flight plan, you must be prepared to do the navigation for the flight you've planned. When ATC has any variations or want you to do something specific, they give you...

    That may be good for a check, but I've been running ORBX and UT for years on FSX, and the only problems I ran into were which layer was shown for what, so a little careful shifting of priorities...

    Given your computer, I suspect you'd get the most bang for the buck out of Microsoft's FSX, but you can try the demo of X-Plane yourself -- it's full featured for (I think) 10 minutes. You haven't...
