Was that the prop that went sailing (vizible at 31 seconds) just appearing above the sunshade?
Mike.(Try hosting again tonight?)

(Just looked again, with glasses, & saw it was the main gear(minus the wheel).

When you do a "belly Flop" like that you don't need those main gear anymore.

Hi fellas!
I'm back from Oshosh 2012
Things went well except for this guy who has now learned that doggy stakes are meant for holding dogs, not airplanes. This occured during a very powerful storm that went through Osh on July 26.
The stakes didn't pull out, they snapped in two!

I've just re-discovered a sectional aero chart for Atlanta in my collection of stuff dad left me. I wonder how close FSX follows it?
It's from 2001.
I guess I need to start looking for out of date charts to go with it?

That's only a "Thunder Mustang" a homebuilt so this guy only needs $$$$$$...maybe $$

Was this the only damage from your storm, Ed?

I might give it a try if I can get on thru game spy
Game spy won't accept my password. clicked on "email password" and that doesn't work
Set up a new account and keep getting "password can't be more than 16 alphanumeric characters, so tried 15, tried 10, tried 4, tried 6, tried 8 but just keep getting 16 alphanumeric
warning .
So to heck with game spy!
I'll just do private free flight

Never heard of such a problem........as you have ED. I get booted but I have 3 accounts and they all work.

Sure you're in the right place?

I'll put a link up to where I signed up later..
