    Actual Spitfire.

    It was a great flight. Since I arranged it, I got to choose my seat, which was up front on the right, my wife on the left (her first flight ever!), the treeguys behind us, and the mayor of Westmount and an Air Canada stewardess were also on board. Nine seats total. There is zero legroom in the front seat so I asked if I could put my feet through the door into the cockpit and they said it was fine. And we all had to agree to call the pilot "Father". I thought that was funny. The standard flight was 45 minutes around Montreal, but we booked the last flight on the last day and asked if we could tour the Laurentians north of Montreal and the pilot was fine with that. We ended up with a 75 minute flight including buzzing the tower at Mirabel. Awe-Some! It was like flying in an old Harley Davidson. The sound and feel was fantastic. I even got to sit in the cockpit after we landed, and I have a photo of me with my fat head squeezed out the pilot's window with a smile on my face like a five-year old with a new pair of shoes.

    Went up in a Lockheed L-10A Electra once. That was an awesome flight. $90 a seat for a 45 minute ride, the money was being raised for charity. Our tree company booked 7 of the nine seats. This exact plane.

    We get F-18s every few weeks. That's always pretty cool.

    Nice! I had the A2A Simulations P-51 for FSX. That was a lot of fun.

    Yep, love that ad. And!... they put out a hotfix for the CTDs with the Nevada and PG maps that happened after the last update. So far, so good.

    Morning, There is a fix of sorts for the CTDs with the Nevada and PG maps. https://forums.eagle.ru/showpost.php?p=3616083&postcount=182 Could someone be kind enough to tell me what "home beta" folder means? Do they mean the main DCS folder in your Steam library, or is there a sub folder. Thanks.

    I was able to load the maps a few times and then got CTDs after that. The new sandstorm effect is cool off you get the lighting right. Still need another 8GB of RAM for DCS though.
  15. BOX is pretty delicious as far as eye candy goes. I still find the rain on the cockpit effect very, very cool. I see no reason BOX will not go ahead with the times and remain top shelf in the eye candy department
