How long are you going to be in Vegas for? What kind of money are you looking at spending? Can you go out of town? I ask these questions because the activities available are quite numerous and diverse. There's a gabillion (OK, maybe not that many!) shows on the Strip, many are family friendly. The H...

Rereading my post, I think I kinda gave off the wrong tone, and I apologize for that. I was also basing my comments on what I've discovered of my own airline, and a few others.

The summary of what Lawndart said is that a pilot (and flight attendant) only get paid from when the plane pushes from the gate to the time it stops in the gate. There certainly are exceptions, but by and large that's it. And if you want to know how stupid a pilot is, look at this for an example. Th...

Worked great! Copied it to the PS3 as well. It's odd that it couldn't read it from a flash drive, but a DVD was fine.

In any case, the only ways it could be better for me now is 1080p and one file! Next time maybe....

Was a great show indeed. I even got to watch most of it this year. Does anyone care to comment on this pic? Someone posted it for a specific reason on another forum. If you don't see it, it should be harmless and clean, if you catch the problem, while obscene you are old enough anyway. I'll make a r...

I think if I did that it would downgrade it to 480i. I want to watch in 720P glory.

Smoke On and PS3

Has anyone figured out how to get Smoke On onto the PS3? I can see it, but it reports as being an unsupported file type. I wanted to watch it on my 60" to "warm up" for tomorrow.

Got a nice view of the C17 demo today from the east side of the runways. That beast looks MEAN 500 feet above you in a 60* bank!

Due to the decreased manning, worldwide deployments and an increased operations tempo, Nellis Air Force Base is unable to host a general air show media day on Friday, Nov. 7. Nov. 8-9, the base public affairs office will accommodate accredited media to the best of its ability with interviews and ph...

There's an airshow at Nellis?

See you guys there. Swing by the CAP aircraft and say hi. If I do the same as last year you can jump into the Gippsland. Looks like a box van, but it's got a nice panel for a GA aircraft. We'll probably be right in from of the T-Bird hangar again.

Southwest LAS incident

Does anyone know what happened Monday at LAS between two SWA aircraft? Rumors (and witnesses) are all over the ramp, but none have given me a plausible scenario.

Don't we do the same? That's what Red Flag is all about, except for the navy thing.

That was the first one I played. I played it on the IBM PC 5150 though. It was the first game we bought after upgrading from the TRS80. And I've gotta say, transfering 1000's of lines of BASICA code sucks.

It is a helmet mounted system. That said you'd be surprised at how small HUDs can get. Also, I don't know the reasoning for vidsibility, but consider the designed use of the F35. I'm pretty sure it's not designed for dogfighting, more standoff long range, so in theory rear visibility might not be re...
