  1. ...but a delight to cruise around in, enjoying the local scenery. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BYXc-jYYHSI 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 uninterupted full screen replay! Thanks for looking
  2. Thanks Shaun...I enjoyed making it
  3. Here is my video of Echo performing aerobatics at McLeland Field. The display is very loosely based on my real life solo display but of course we had no ring of fire and I was not allowed to go this low so the resemblance is a bit faint! The video runs for about 18 minutes, is in HD and very suitable for Full Screen Mode.

  4. I'm busy working up a new air display video with "Echo"...Took a few shots today, during set up work:- A few other shots can be seen here:- http://forum.mutleyshangar.com/index.php?/topic/5996-working-up-a-video/ Thanks for looking
  5. Hi Shaun...I thought I might do that too!...The rate of roll at slow speed is VERY slow but fortunately it picked up quickly as I fell out towards the sea and the elevators bit harder too, as you could see. I would use more starting speed for any future roll but the aeroplane is not really aerobatic Hi Andras...The VNE is 110 MPH but I imagine they used a ready available ASI from one of their bigger models
  6. I finally got this to work how it was supposed to:- http://www.petermcleland.com/powerpoint/208_Squadron_in_Kenya.zip Unzip the downloaded file to anywhere and it will create a folder called 208_Squadron_in_Kenya...Open the folder and doubleclick the file "208_Squadron_in_Kenya.pps". The PowerPoint presentation should now play with music. If you just let it run then it will go for about half an hour. If you do not have Microsoft's PowerPoint then you can download a free PowerPoint Viewer here:- http://tinyurl.com/3ywowm
  7. Here are a couple of YouTubes I made with this delightful little freeware floatplane:- 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.

  8. Chipmunk "Sierra Bravo" practices with the "Ring of Fire" at McLeland Field. Mark Jones is in the front seat and I'm in the back. I have reprocessed this video to make it 1080p HD and it is now very suitable for "Full Screen Mode" viewing:- 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.

  9. I've improved the Grumman Duck's engine and water sounds:- Same instructions as before
  10. I really enjoyed my first flight in this freeware machine at McLeland Seaplane Base. It has a rather unique feel and is laterally a bit pendulous, but I think you might expect that with the big hull. I like the look of it a lot and would like to see an AI Traffic version popping in and out of the Seaplane Base...I think I will make a special Traffic Version for that purpose and I also think I will base it over at the Marine Services pontoon.

  11. Thanks Pierre, I have not really added to my Website after my time in 266 Squadron. However, I have uploaded a PowerPoint presentation about my time on 208 Squadron:- http://tinyurl.com/4bfetl6 The download will take at least 5 minutes and you must have Microsoft's Powerpoint to view it...A free download of Powerpoint Viewer can be obtained here:- http://tinyurl.com/3ywowm BTW...It is in colour and runs for 26 minutes if you just let it play, and it comes with some music
  12. It is sold by Abacus...I got the boxed version
  13. After all that automated flight I though I would like to briefly throw it around a bit to see how it really felt...It felt "Lively!":- This one only runs for 4 and half minutes...Thanks for looking :beer3_s:
  14. Thanks Matt...Yes it is a very busy place during weekdays because the 36 F-16s come in or out...It is quieter on Weekends
  15. When I built McLeland Field I spent a considerable time building the Approaches to the runways...I built five approaches:- ILS R/W 31 GPS R/W 31 ILS R/W13 GPS R/W 13 VOR R/W 31 Runway 13 is the most hazardous to approach due to the proximity of mountainous terrain, but for the GPS approach to this runway I built in a bit of offset from the extended runway centreline to give greater lateral separation from these mountains. The attached YouTube video shows the use of this approach in a Light Sports Aircraft (LSA)...The Cessna 162 with the Garmin 300 Glass Panel. The video runs for almost 15 minutes and is only suitable for Flight Sim enthusiasts and more especially for those who fly light GA aircraft rather than airliners. I have not listed it publicly as it would bore most people. However if the subject interests you then here is the Abacus version of the Cessna 162 with Garmin glass panel doing a short three legged cross-country, finishing with a GPS approach onto runway 13 in real weather (raining). Bear in mind that LSA aircraft are really VFR only and they do not have airways navigation facilities...However, it is nice to know that if you get caught out by the weather then this panel will allow you to do an autopilot controlled approach that will get you safely down. The video is in HD and should be clicked up to the full resolution of 1080 and viewed in Full Screen Mode...This will allow you to see the mouse clicks to load and activate the approach and to control the altitude and rate of descent throughout the approach. If you have a slowish Broadband which causes buffering pauses, click the Pause icon in the bottom left corner...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. Please Note...In spite of what is painted on the aeroplane I am using the callsign N456UI for this flight...Thanks for looking
  16. Here is my Stream Landings video re-rendered in 1080 HD and very suitable for Full Screen viewing. Click the resolution up to 1080 HD and then if you have a slowish Broadband which causes buffering pauses, click the Pause icon in the bottom left corner...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. Thanks for looking
  17. I have re-rendered the TridentTurnround video in 1080 HD and it is now very suitable for Full Screen viewing. Click the resolution up to 1080 HD and then if you have a slowish Broadband which causes buffering pauses, click the Pause icon in the bottom left corner...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
  18. A few shots testing the JF R44... The cruise ship in the waiting anchorage today is "Queen Mary II". The other few shots can be seen here:- http://forum.mutleyshangar.com/index.php?/topic/5600-r44/ Thanks for looking
  19. ...at my Alaska base. There goes one of the fishing trawlers going out to take advantage of this clear spell. I don't know how I manage to avoid... ...all those seagulls!

  20. I saw a recommendation for a lights improvement for FS9 by Nick Needham and I installed them from the download file called "Nicks_Lightfix_V2.zip". I am very pleased with the results and here are a sequence of Traffic screenshots...The only edits are on the 1st, 8th and 9th, which have the contrast increased to show the star constellations. The package provides auto installers to install the new lights or restore the original lights...The "install new lights" offers installers for "Aircraft Lights", "Airport Lights", "Landing Lights" and "Tower and Ground Beacon Lights" with excellent instructions. Here are my shots...They are best viewed in a darkened room:- Touching down. The full sequence can be seen by clicking this address:- http://forum.mutleyshangar.com/index.php?/topic/5524-lights-fix/ Thanks for looking
  21. Since I updated this video to HD it has become my firm favourite...In Full Screen mode and 1080 resolution I can see so many small details around my base...I spot something new every time I run it Just in case anyone does not know how this sort of flying is done...I flew all three aeroplanes...First on my own in the Red Machine. Then I played that back as Traffic and formated on it, in the Blue machine with the chrome cowling, and split at the right time and came in the right way to thread the needle with the Red machine while rolling in time to his roll. Finally I played back both of those as Traffic and flew the lighter blue machine with the 5 cylinder radial, continuing on when they split and did a half loop and roll off to come in at 90 degrees to the runway and roll under their smoke trails as they threaded the needle. Then I had to judge my circuit to get down and join with the other two on the turn off the runway for the taxy in and parking...Great fun and I just loved it and I love watching it happen all over again
  22. Witham, I think it would be very difficult now to find which Vanguard you flew in, as the relavent records have probably been scrapped...You don't say what date in August 1965 that you flew to Belfast from LHR but for interest my logbook reveals that I flew that sector in August 1965 as follows:- 4th August in G-APEO 14th August in G-APEP 15th August in G-APEM 16th August in G-APEP 21st August in G-APEK Also for interest G-APEP now resides at Brooklands and they do very occasional engine runs on the RR Tynes
  23. ...Following on from my previous post, here is a further sequence of Wintry shots:- Hmmm...I think she might need to nip down below for a hot toddy! The rest of the pictures can be seen by clicking this address:- http://forum.fsscreenshots.com/dcboard.php?az=show_topic&forum=2&topic_id=7904&mode=full&page Thanks for looking
  24. For the attention of Mathijs Kok... Just as a matter of interest Mathijs, your site is using the wrong "Embed" code for my video and that precludes selecting "Full Screen Mode"...The correct Embed code will place a "Full Screen Mode" icon in the bottom right corner. In case it is of use, here is the correct Embed code:- <object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rl6D-Ky8u78?hl=en&fs=1"></param>'>http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rl6D-Ky8u78?hl=en&fs=1"></param> <param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rl6D-Ky8u78?hl=en&fs=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"></embed></object> EDIT...It's OK now Mathijs...I edited it with {url}....{/url} (with square brackets) and it does not embed it now and you can click a Full Screen Mode icon :beer3_s:
