Re: THERE HAS BEEN A NEAR TOTAL INCIDENT OF STRANGENESS...

Well... Pilots are stupid, ATC guys are stupid. The only thing missing here was a stupid, violent , tiny genitaled cop. I'm sure there are more things. Including, but not limited to: -Did the pilots use rudder inputs in any way resembling "you do what you need to do"? -Make any mistakes on a car, b...

Re: F.A.O.: 3WE

I never had the joy of the Big-Wheel-spin out, but going fast, turning hard and placing significant side-loads on the rear main's was part of the experience. Do they come with fringes and a heavy object hanging (hopefully not from the brake lever) on/from the handle to guesstimate airspeed , angle ...

You send Evanie first to ride his tri cycle hard , and then downhill with bumps and curves on a bi cycle, without proper in-type retraining . Are you trying to total-cycle-disastering him ? Valid point. In my defense, I am not so sure he is capable of handling a metallic bicycle which depends upon ...

Sometimes you have to sing down with an off-center ball with our engine. Yes, really. Not sure how to interpret that... did LHB drop by Texas and share some stuff and were seeing a trilingual effect? Plus, on my flight last week, I have to believe I felt some rudder reversals in the lively mountain...

Please note: You should not move from right to left rudder inputs (or vice versa) without pausing at neutral.

For the sake of relevance to our 2 members who don't participate there: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=roS6oFjCDhc

There indeed appears to be a remarkable swerve to the left after a relatively good looking touchdown.

Re: Near Total Crosswind Disasters

...And wow, I was just reminded of how to handle a steady-state crosswind versus one with wind gusts.

I can't deny that wind varies in it's gustiness, and would concur that MSFS offers a most unique experience of a steady state crosswind.

Near Total Crosswind Disasters

Probably no question here- Evan's Rudder Reversal deal impressed me as do so many of those other crosswind videos. It seems you guys have some seriously tough landing gear, and maybe given that my very limited flying experience is all 172 where the wing and several pounds of gas are up high...I find...

Actually, the livery you're talking about, their A320s DO have heated cargo bins.
I can't quite get the right vision...maybe the TV game show Jeapordy...Welcome our contestants today...Evan...Bobby....Ike....

"Yes, Alex, I'll take cargo-bin heating for $250"...
