    Default David S. got me interested in the Boeing 737-200!

    Found this in the library this morning. I like the color and the Jaguar image. Seems to fly well, but will give it a go on a longer trip than just around Charleston!

    You definitely have to take her on a trip. Love the older technology. It's nice to have my Nav radios working. Now I just have to figure out why my particular aircraft having trouble holding the glideslope! Always something

    That Jaguar paint is fantastic!

    Yes, you got that right David, always something!

    Don't let the Nav issues getting corrected stop you, any problems that arise, get involved in that Tinmouse forum. You will not only get some/most of your questions answered and learn something at the same time! By the dates of their posts, it looks like these guys have been doing this for quite some time! I had to laugh when I saw your Nav panel, reminded me of something that I gave up on a long time ago!

    This was a Sperry NAV/COM radio from my first DC-3 aircraft encounter. You know me, it just had to go. Sad part, I no longer owned my boat, it would have made a great boat anchor! Funny, I guess there are a few simmers out there that continue to use them!

    I really like that Jaguar paint on your 737-200 Rick. It looks like it's ready to leap into the air.

    I agree, great shot! And that's far too big a bird to just hand around the pattern in!! Guys in 150s would freak out!!

    And yes almost any "Leaper" shot is a keeper. I sometimes wish I still had my old '66 Mark X. But I'm too old to keep it running and couldn't afford to pay to have it repaired!!

    Yeah, awesome! My Grandfather's Cessna 180 had an old Narco Superhomer radio, we used to call them coffee grinders, and they weren't much better than the Sperry you see above!

    Here's what the panel looked like when I got done with it! No more Sperry! Much nicer!

    You're gonna wake up the dead with those engines.

    The Janet aircraft back in the day that took employees to and from Area-51 were 737-200's. I read people were complaining of the noise they made so I guess this was one reason why EG&G? bought 737-600's which are now in use today. And they were bought from China no less. They do have a Beechcraft 1900 C or D. Maybe more than one. Since I saw one of the flight plans for that Beechcraft was to Nut Tree airport in CA, in the Sim at my created Area-51 that's exactly where it would go to and from. I actually think there might be a military base or something related to aviation there so that would be the reason why they would go to Nut Tree.

    Edit-

    So it looks like Janet was run by EG&G, then URS and now URS was bought by AECOM.

    Edit 2-

    I need to contact my stock broker... LOL!
