New X-Plane, New Graphics Card

Upgraded from an AMD RX 580 to the AMD RX 6950 XT. Purchased X-Plane 12. A few images of an almost max'ed out X-Plane graphics settings.

The following are with January 1 set as the date. I like how X-Plane 12 automatically changes the tree's leaves (to depict winter) and with a change to the weather settings adds down a nice layer of snow.

Archive Footage: SR-71 from 1995

Jim Mumaw posted on YouTube a copy of a VHS recording of the SR-71 at Edwards AFB and the USAF Plant 42 from 1995.

He admittedly said the video hasn't held up as well as he had hoped.

Not for Plane Spotting Image Uploads

Recently read "Ferry Pilot: Nine Lives Over the North Atlantic" and now I want to fly across the ocean

I recently read Kerry McCauley's book "Ferry Pilot: Nine Lives Over the North Atlantic" in which Kerry joins the ranks of ferry pilots shuttling aircraft across the Atlantic. I found the book fun to read and now I want to experiment with a few across the ocean flights myself.

I plan to work up routes to test my fortitude to some of the closer places such as Narsarsuaq (BGBW). According to the book you need to fly to the NDB, turn outbound, fly that for 9 miles while descending to 4,200ft. Then make a standard rate left turn, descending to 3,600ft, then inbound descending to 1,800ft minimum descent altitude.

I guess the next thing I'll need to tackle is adjusting the fuel capacity of a Cessna 182 giving it the range it will need and also the weight load.

Just Something Fun - An Airport Flight Status Board Screensaver

@PICRod I like this screensaver so much that I dusted off Xcode and added a different font. I am attempting to add an option function which would let me choose which font to display in the Screen Saver Options of System Preferences.
