Does work really well Burgess,

The controller is USB powered so no batteries. It's the one I recommended to our friend with the T34.

I see that there might be a problem with CDs through customs these days, that could be the problem with my replacement parcel. However, Banggood supply a download link for the software so it's easy enough to make your own (if it's not in the box).

When you say "As I don't have a fight sim I might get one of those..." I would really recommend 'Combat Flight Sim 3'. I fly it when the wife's been on at me. Very satisfying to down her 109 in your Spitfire; especially with a 60lb rocket!

Oh, the joys of the technical world! Laughing

Tom.

LOL Laughing

Some years...many years back, I almost had a go in the full sized Hercules flight sim at RAF Lyneham, unfortunately there was a power outage that day.

Talking of Hercules, they follow the coast line north and bank over at quite an angle to miss the castle mount...they look to be lower than the top of the castle so must be about 150 foot above sea level.
They are very quiet and quick, first time I hear one I though it was some sports car...big surprise to see a Hercules apparently jump out from behind the castle.

One of these days I'll get a photo of it..but you just don't hear it coming.

Many, many years ago, I must have been 13~14 I had a 'flight' in a Link trainer:

That is about the one! Still in use in 1949 and on Very Happy

Be good if you could get a video of that Hercules Burgess, won't be easy but well wirth it!

Tom.

Managed to get the link copy and past to work

In the air cadets we had an ejector seat and a single channel Super Sixty.

Only know the Hercules coming about ten seconds before it's gone, and can't see it coming for the castle mount.
When the Yanks are at RAF Valley you can hear them before they come over the horizon.

Whereas the Hawks are almost out of sight before you hear them.

Last year there was ‘near miss' reported as two Hawks passed each other...

In that photo notice the canopy isn't closed, probably because the pilot was wing walking to take the photo.

They should come on a good day when they get close enough to swop sandwich boxes. Razz

Good picture that Burgess, probably taken by the second of the pair. It's quite an experience flying in formation. I flew some as navigator in Javelins, here's an old pic, The Straights Times called them 'bombers' but they were definitely Javelins:

1965 - seems a lifetime ago, I suppose it's more than that for some people. Smile

I see now how the link works - just ignore the buttons and paste it in aziz. Wink Well, you're never to old to learn are you!!!!

Thanks for the tip,

Tom.

I spent a lot of time in a Link Trainer in the late 60's when I was in the Air Training Corps, our flight had it's own which I was responsible for in my last year. The one we had did not have movable control surfaces but still had the map table with the crawler on it and a map of Victoria Australia under the glass I flew all over Victoria and often under it in that Link great fun, thanks for the memory.
