  1. Heartbreaking news. Even more so that he had just been vaccinated and it seems that this horrid scourge of Covid caused his death. As with all of us, my sincere condolences to his loved ones (which I'm sure includes all of J5). “Thousands of candles can be lit from a single candle and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.”

  3. I'm still a bit confused. I would think that it only works with headsets that have external cameras. Is that a correct statement?

  5. Yeah, this is exactly what I experienced (apart from the ram... LOL... classic.) Will post a track also if it happens again.

  11. Well, here's a couple of my personal skins with field repairs. I decided to go with bare aluminum just for aesthetics. I doubt that they would have let them go bare (I wouldn't... I'd at least apply some primer. I've seen a drawing of a 109 that had a repair on the lower wingtip... I forget which one... and it had red oxide primer applied to the repairs). Both planes have a combination of full panel replacements and "scab" patches. And BTW, I'm an A&P mechanic with 25+ years of experience doing sheet metal repairs so, other than the bare metal, I don't think they are beyond the
