  1. I'm rather enjoying this futuristic electric aeroplane from Australia...It is quite a learning curve and all VERY different. It is called the Avelina:- The rest of the shots can be seen here:- http://forum.mutleyshangar.com/index.php/topic/7523-a-dream-of-the-future/ Thanks for looking
  2. And here is a YouTube video of the procedings:- This video shows recent improvements to Aerosoft's AES (Airport Enhancement Services) and was made in FS9. It looks best with the Quality set to 1080p and then Full Screen Mode. Thanks for looking
  3. I noticed that this version has many improvements over the previous ones and today at London City Airport I got a good look at the new model marshaller. BTW... He walks much better than the old one LOL! Thanks for looking
  4. Here is a 5 minute video of Little Bandit's visit to the IWM at Duxford:- Click the resolution up to 1080 and then click the "Full Screen" icon at bottom right. Thanks for looking
  5. I had a walk around this excellent freeware scenery from The Airfield Construction Group today...This is the FS9 version but they also do it for FSX:- The other shots can be seen here:- http://forum.mutleyshangar.com/index.php/topic/6965-iwm-duxford/ Thanks for looking
  6. Having just bought this beautiful little airport, in the UK2000 Xtreme series, I thought I would take a few screenshots. A picture says a thousand words so I will let them speak for themselves:- The other shots can be seen here:- http://forum.mutleyshangar.com/index.php/topic/6896-cumbernauld/ Thanks for looking
  7. I enjoyed my first flight in this lovely model by George Diemer of Marlborough, Massachusetts...Here is a short (3mins 25secs) video:- The video is best viewed in HD 1080 and Full Screen Mode. Thanks for looking
  8. I enjoyed my first flight in this model by Keith Paine:- I look forward to flying it some more The video is best viewed in HD 750 or 1080.
  9. Just flying around and checking my recent work:- Thanks for looking
  10. I've started working to improve my base...Here are a few general scenes that incorporate changes:- ...at Dusk. The rest of the shots can be seen by clicking this address:- http://forum.mutleyshangar.com/index.php/topic/6542-small-mods-and-additions/ Thanks for looking
  11. Yes Mathijs...The seats were very hard and you sat on a flat canvas covered square water bottle (water being uncompressible, there was no danger of the water bottle pack causing injury on ejection). When we flew them out from UK to Kenya, I devised a way of folding my G-suit into a square cushion with the legs zipped into each other it folded very neatly. So instead of wearing my G-suit for these long flights, I sat on it...I plugged it into the air system as usual but left the cock turned off...Then when my bum was getting sore, I would turn ON the air cock and tickle the "Press to Test" button. This had the effect of inflating and deflating my cushion to relieve the cramp (felt like sitting on a litter of puppies!). For the first flight from Stradishall to Malta, I was leading a formation...The cushion worked very well as planned...But, unfortunately I forgot to turn off the air cock the last time I used it...I led the formation in to break over the runway for landing...Snapped on about 80 degrees of bank for the break and pulled back on the stick. Needless to say I promptly got stuffed up against my harness and into the canopy by a rapidly inflating cushion. The other chaps in my formation were not impressed with the ragged pull-push nature of my very untidy break. So I had second thoughts about that irregular use of my G-suit and flew the rest of the way to Kenya on the hard water bottle pack. Well I'm now halfway round Mathijs and I'm enjoying it...I fly it all in real time and real weather, but I do have a nice comfortable cushion on my computer seat. BTW...It is a fast aeroplane and I cruise at about M0.86
  12. Although 208 Squadron visited Rhodesia with Venoms, I thought I would continue my circumnavigation travelling South... The outer tanks are back on now as I continue on South to Rhodesia. Rather sad to leave Nairobi. In the climb to 40,000 feet...The big mountain on the map to my left is Kilimanjaro. The rest of the pictures can be see by clicking this address:- http://forum.mutleyshangar.com/index.php/topic/6501-down-to-rhodesia/ Thanks for looking
  13. This second sortie sees me in the Rift Valley, visiting Lakes Magadi and Natron, Ol Doinyo Lengai (Mountain of God), Olduvai Gorge, Ngorongoro, Lake Manyara and the two peaks and saddle of Kilimanjaro, Kibo 19340 feet and Mawenzi 16896 feet. If you have a slowish Broadband which causes buffering pauses, click the Pause icon in the bottom left corner, then click the resolution up to 1080p...Now WAIT as the pink band moves from left to right, till it gets about halfway across. Now click that same Pause icon to start it running again and finally click the Full Screen icon at bottom right...It should now run through without further pausing. At the end you will see a "Replay" button...If you click that you will get an uninterrupted full screen replay! Thanks for looking
  14. I found a way to add or remove the outer drop tanks on Echo with a single desktop click before starting FS9...This is very handy, now that I'm down in Nairobi enroute Round the World, as I want to pause here for a while and fly some sorties from 1960. This first one sees me in the Rift Valley visiting Suswa, Hell's Gate, Ol Longonot and lakes Magadi and Natron. Returning to Nairobi over the Ngong hills. Tomorrow, I will visit favourites further South in the Rift Valley. Here is today's flight in real weather, which did produce a bit of cloud near Longonot:- If you have a slowish Broadband which causes buffering pauses, click the Pause icon in the bottom left corner, then click the resolution up to 1080p...Now WAIT as the pink band moves from left to right, till it gets about halfway across.

  16. Now that NASA TV has gone HD I was able to make a slideshow of some of the procedings. My show starts AFTER the astronauts have been strapped in so there will be no pictures of them. The first half of the show is dedicated to the "Close Out Crew" operating in the White Room. Then the launch. The final eight shots are from camera replays. The slideshow can be seen here:- http://www.petermcleland.com/Last The pictures appear in your browser and are in 16:9 wide screen format. They are best viewed in "Full Screen" mode (IE with F11 and Firefox with View>Full Screen) In the group of Icons at bottom centre, click the left one once to set SlideShow and then the Play icon to run, pause or stop it. The slideshow is outside the Forum so the forum screenshot size rules are not applicable...But the pictures will automatically adjust to suit your screen size.
  17. This is a re-processed version of the Synchro Three Practice session at McLeland Field in 16:9 format, for people who have screens of that shape. I don't have any 16:9 screens on my computer system but I do have a 32 inch Panasonic television of that resolution so I use these converted videos to make DVDs and they look really great on that. If you have a slowish Broadband which causes buffering pauses, click the Pause icon in the bottom left corner, then click the resolution up to 1080p...Now WAIT as the pink band moves from left to right, till it gets about halfway across.

  18. While taking Echo around the World I am reliving moments from the past in certain locations. Here are a few shots taken as I savoured a flight in 1960 that we flew to get a photograph:- The other few shots can be seen here:- http://forum.mutleyshangar.com/index.php/topic/6268-reliving-old-memories/ Thanks for looking
  19. This is a re-processed version of the Echo aerobatics display in 16:9 format, for people who have screens of that shape. The manoeuvres that I'm particularly proud of in this video are:- 1.The roll on take-off through the fiery hoop. 2.Twice through the fiery hoop on a single loop. 3.Landing through the fiery hoop from an inverted break. I think this is my best YouTube video. If you have a slowish Broadband which causes buffering pauses, click the Pause icon in the bottom left corner, then click the resolution up to 1080p...Now WAIT as the pink band moves from left to right, till it gets about halfway across.

At the end you will see a "Replay" button...If you click that you will get an uninterupted full screen replay! Thanks for looking
  21. I've been enjoying some Search and Rescue flights with the Abacus product...I took a few pictures on today's sortie...No captions are necessary. The other few images can be seen here:- http://forum.mutleyshangar.com/index.php/topic/6213-sr/ Thanks for looking
  22. In the old days when I was preparing for a long trip in a Hunter, the first step was to get all the maps that covered the route and stick them all together with glue, draw on the track from start point to destination and finally cut away all of it that was more than 50 miles each side of track. This made it into a strip map 100 miles wide and it was folded concertina fashion so that it could sit on my right thigh and be opened a section at a time as I proceded up the track. We had no nav aids in our Hunters so navigation was all by map reading. Now it is different and as I prepare to take Echo round the World I am substituting an EFB (Electronic Flight Bag) for the big pile of strip maps that I would need for the circumnavigation. Here are a few shots that I took today as I tested the EFB in Echo's cockpit:- When I call it up it sits on my right knee like this. I have just set a "Direct To" to McLeland Field. The other shots can be seen by clicking this address:- http://forum.mutleyshangar.com/index.php/topic/6111-instead-of-a-strip-map/ Thanks for looking
  23. I have only just found out how to get the full set of external tanks on my Hunters...I was labouring under the impression that the only optional model of the aircraft was the "Clean" version, but when I looked it was the full long range version. What a shame I did not discover this before I sent them all out to Kenya last year. It would have been the correct rig for them Anyway here are a few shots I took today of the AI Traffic long range version with inboard 230 gallon external tanks and out board 100 gallon external tanks:- This is the only shot of "Echo"...The other shots which are of Des Melaniphy's Hunter XJ643 are here:- http://forum.mutleyshangar.com/index.php/topic/6095-tanked-up/ Thanks for looking
