Yeah, i've got a 52" with the same features.
Now if I could only convince my wife her shows would look better on a smaller screen!
I'd love to use the bigun for the main view & the small one for the instruments!

Now that sounds like a plan...

Tried to find Veterans Overlook, but they don't have road signs down there. I did find the lake

It would help if I named the right lake.....
That is Cherokee Lake, not Douglass!
From Moristown airport due north about 8 miles, look for the Highway crossing the ridge.
The south side is the overlook area.

OKay, you guys fly and I'll try and shoot you down!

This is what I worked on when I was in the military, I worked mostly on the guidance systems and radar systems

I think this film was shot in South Korea at the Nike test site

THe thing you see headed downward trailing white smoke is a burned out booster, after separation from the second stage
The booster lifted the missile to 5,000 feet in 4.6 seconds, then burned out and fell back.

To give you an idea, these missiles were 46 feet long, weighed just over 10,000 lbs and reached speeds of Mach 5 and could reach altitudes of 150,000
feet then fly back down and follow its target anywhere.
There was no getting away from it, or out flying it!

Still using basic FSX so no fancy stuff here.

Start one in fly-ins (where we usually fly) & add RCG to your session name & we'll try to drop in!
