    I had to 'get away' for a couple of hours and this was the result.
    I'm still mad, I still want another smoke, my tounge is sore from all the sunflower seeds. Besides that it's been a great Happy Mothers Day ;)

    Stick to it brother, plus a little extra flight time can't be all bad. ;) :)

    First one I played was Fsim 1.0 on an old atari or somethig.
    Latest I have is FS 2004 I can't keep up but every one that comes out blows the last away.
    Keep trucking Marlin T, it'll be worth it, believe me.

    Tony, the plane builders are cranking them out so fast it is hard to keep track of everything out there.

    I don’t think the 747 is the biggest plane that is available for FSX, but lets say it is. You can fly that, right down to a hang glider.
    THIS place has just about everything that is out there, well for sale anyways. There are other places that carry the free stuff.

    Or as Trouble pointed out, the Thorp doesn’t have a pilot. You see what happened was that shortly after off I hit the auto pilot then saw;;;; a store that had smokes for sale. I bailed out into the ocean next to the store just so I could get at least a drag of one.

    Man I’m making my mouth water, it’s been almost a week now. No smoking that is.

    Oh hold on, the Thorp is still in development and he isn’t happy with the way the pilot looks yet. Beings that is his father’s airplane, I’m pretty sure that he is trying to model his Dad as the pilot.

    Oh Islandboy, FSX is the last flight sim that Microsoft is going to produce. They dropped their flight sim division, so if you can upgrade to it, you’ll have it for quite some time before something better comes along.
