After 28 years of marriage and countless hours of flight simming on my part, my wife put two and two together and got me this for XMas:

I'm set for April 12th. I'll either be grinning like a fool or projectile vomiting but either way I'm psyched! Anybody know what trainer that is?

Lovely Woman you have there, pricey gift too.

I did something simular a few years back, it was awsum, but I had to wait till she was out of town, and snuck it in, later I told her and it Pissed her plumb off. Not the money, but the risk I took, for some reason she thinks flying in a 60 year old plane doing stunts is dangerous http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif

It was well worth it, given the chance, I'd do it agian, over and over again. Link in my sig about it.

She has TWO sisters. Which one would you like? I feel it only fair to warn you though, they are Sicilians. Best keep to the straight and narrow or lose parts of your manhood whilst sleeping http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif

Marchetti SF260 eh? I'll have to look the specs up online. Thanks!

That must be amazing to do.
Looks like you donĀ“t need any deflection shooting there in the video Frankyboy linked.
Maybe they can make an addon for FSX like those air fights.No need for DM model,just some smoke....or something http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

28 years? Is that how long it takes? Oh well, at least there`s hope!

You didn't say if you have ever been in a plane before, it will make a differance on your fun level, an hour of instruction would be a great investment for great memmorys. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

"Its going to take some doing on your part to repay that kind of present"

Let's just say that XMas 06 "diamonds were a girl's best friend"! But that said she is my best friend, my closest confidante and an outstanding mother. Whatever I buy her falls way short of all she's sacrificed for her family over the years. Plus...I always remember that she is Sicilian http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Re. the link to photobucket - Viewers need a password with the link you gave. I think you can link to your user name at the top left of the album page (after where it says 'current album') so others can see the album.

I think those fighters are porked!! They won't be able to out turn a Spit or 109 without the slat thing under the wings fully extended.

Hey Toad, besides panic under pressure, poor sense of direction and complete lack of charisma, one ofthe reasons I'm not a RL military pilot is my 20/2000 eyesight. What if any issues did your AT-6 flight have with spectacles? Yes and I would like to view your sig link but, as stated, you need a password!
