Self endulgent, but im posting my flight sim history in pictures for a record here :ymblushing:
(originally posted on the tvoc forums)

16th September 2008

All lined up ready
Image

Syncronised take-off
Image

Tailing SM
Image

SM wanted to hold hands wings with me [-x
Image

Nose to nose
Image

Lets dance
Image

Lining up for takeoff
Image

Throttle to 100%
Image

My take off's in 558 were always dodgy, I like bouncing the front wheels a few times before takeoff B-)
Image

Lovely sight!
Image

Following SM
Image

Right on SM's arse :ymdevil:
Image

Im going inverted!
Image

Formation flying!
Image

I wanted to inspect the undercarriage of 558 in my microlite :D
Image


18th September 2008

Some lovely formation flying :)
Image

He's bloody holding hands wings with me AGAIN! :((

LOL!!!!

47!


Funny you should say that RM, in this pic you can see me losing control of my VC10 .... why? .... well in the distance SM is crashing into Manston runway and Im laughing too much! :D
Image


23rd September 2008

Another Wedgy & SM Airshow :D


My first flight in a Spitfire Mk XVI wasnt too successful - overcooked the engine somewhat ~x(
Image

Formation takeoff. SM was in a Mk IX I believe
Image

More formations
Image

Captain Wedgy!!!! :D
Image

More formations
Image

I blew my engine again, but still managed to glide in for a formation landing.
Image

Round 2, was a formation takeoff in VC10s
Image

Perfect!
Image

Coming in for a formation landing on auto
Image

Next up was me in a Tornado and SM in a VC10 ready and waiting to refuel me :D
Image

Managed to keep the power at bay!
Image

Overcooking the speed!
Image


24th September 2008

Wednesday's Flying with SM.

Lets be the Red Arrows for the day
Image

Sync'd landing
Image

Cool!
Image

Some more VC10 to VC10 refueling ... very close SM!
Image

Then SM tried what I did yesterday ... to refuel from a VC10 in a Tornado.
Well, he took off ....
Image

Then crashed back into the runway! :))

Last night Prometheus joined myself and SM for a short sortie in some DC3s.


Formation
Image

Then Prometheus decided to do some rolls, but without taking off first :D
Image


Using FSHost is much better for multiplayer - its just a shame the graphics arnt as smooth as with GameSpy. But the benefits certainly out-weight the downfalls.

I have tried taking screenshots by pressing 'V' but Combat FS 2 doesn't seen to have that facility at least I haven't found t - so will need to pause, then take a single screen shot, because I have to press fn + prt sc together which for some stupid reason are at different ends of the keyboard so need both hands :(

DT's favourite - he was down to fly the one going to BBMF from BAe - great shame it crashed but we did get to look around it at North Weld airshow a few weeks before

tragic when the BAe Mozzie was lost :(

i saw her fly many times and she was so much more impressive than even the figures SAY she was! i never knew that she was due to join BBMF though Mayfly.

it makes sense that, with the Mozzie ticking all of Bomber Leader's boxes (multi-engined tail-dragger) he'd be in the frame for flying her. did he EVER get a flight, even as an observer?

anyway, when will we get some Mayfly FSX screenshots? ;)

Todays Flights

We were graced with Mayfly's presence for the first time!
Spitfires are go!
Image

Image

Then Mayfly had to leave, so myself and SM visited Sydney.
Shame he got a little flirty in his DC3 with my Goose! 8-|
Image

I then landed by the Sydney Harbour bridge
Image

Image

And waited for SM to fly under the bridge in his DC3

hey Cluny - did you ever download that kml file for Google Earth that shows EVERY airsrip in the UK?

i decided to go through them alphabetically - it took me 3 days to get to "B" =))

absolutely fascinating!

here you go - http://www.homepages.mcb.net/bones/Down ... fields.zip

i can't remember if it's a self-installer or not - i have a feeling that you unzip it and just double click it.

one thing i DO remember is that you need to make sure that the airfields aren't stored in your "temporary places" bit - otherwise you loose them again when you shut GE down.

sorry i can't be more helpful, it's many months since i installed it - it can't be that difficult tofigure out coz i'm fik :p
