  1. Anyone have the same problem?
  2. Today starting from ULMM with -14 C, right from the start my anemometer showed 0. I had the anti-ice on in the most severe conditions possible The anemometer unlocked for only a few seconds, marking my speed but then immediately returned to 0.
  3. After taking off at 1500 ft (rad alt) I start to retract the flaps and reduce the EPR to the value of climb trhust compared to the RAT. With takeoff weights less than 230000 lbs, I always set the plus an EPR value of 1.55 (RAT 35). Although this represents one of the lowest thrusts, to maintain 250 kts with 0 flap, I get climb rates of at least 4000 ft / s. Is it correct to have such high climb rates? For low take-off weights, are there procedures for de-rate the climb trhust?
  4. This livery is very beautiful: https://www.airliners.net/photo/Overseas-National-Airways-ONA/McDonnell-Douglas-DC-8-63CF/3937745
