So let's take-off from Juneau's Harbour and fly south about 350 miles landing at Sandspit in British Columbia.

    DafWings

    Version 14.1.2.2

    1 download

    Hello Pilots. With today's internet protocols and windows securities an old program like FSHost has become next to impossible to have any usefulness and those of us with a renewed interest in Flight Simulator 2004, want to be able to fly in FSV'S multiplayer group flights. We want to be inclusive, encouraging all flight simmers whether a person wants to fly FS9, FSX, P3D or X-Plane. We are not going to stop using JonFS, but I would like to encourage our members to download and install DafWings. Login info: Login ID: is the clsign you use to login to FSVintageAIR.com's website There's a little more to installing DafWings than JoinFS, but the benefits are worth it. What is it? DafWings is a software that allows pilots to connect their Flight Simulator to the DAFSIM network. It is called a “pilot client” because it connects to a “server” in a “Client / Server” mode. The Flight Simulators that are currently managed by DW are: FS2002 (FS8), FS2004 (FS9), FSX, FSX Steam Edition, P3Dv2, P3Dv3, P3Dv4, XPlane 9, XPlane 10 and XPlane 11. DW can cross-connect all of these different simulators allowing them to see each other. For example, pilots using FSX can see FS2004, FSX, P3D and XPlane users and reciprocally. On top of that, an open SDK, called DafSync allows easy creation of plugins for DW. Any plugin or application developed for DW will work on all the managed Flight Simulators. What are the main features it offers? Unmatched smoothness: Very fluid and realistic rendering of the traffic around, extraordinary rendering for aerobatics, fast barrels, flight formation, air-to-air refueling… Integrated Realistic Voice System: No need TeamSpeak or Mumble. Optimized CPU / Memory load:, No display frame-rate drop. Maintaining visual/contact on the other pilots/ATC’s even in case of server failure Open SDK: DafSync to develop your own plugins (TCAS, Radars, Hardware interface…) Thank you for your cooperation, FSV1142 Kenny DafWings User Manual 1.6.pdf DafWings Win8 Win10.pdf

In the same year, the prototype Model 70 private-venture training biplane, designed by Harold Zipp and Jack Clark, was built. Some 61 were bought by the USN as Model 73s and the improved Model 75 appeared in 1936. In total, 8,428 Model 75s had been built by 1945 when production ended. Used by the USAAF and the USN, as well as by other countries, the Model 75 had a variety of military designations: USAAF PT-13, PT-17, PT-18 and USN N2S-1 to N2S-5. The PT-27 was an enclosed cockpit version used by Canada. All Kaydet versions were similar, differing mainly in the type of engine used.\nWhile most post-war surplus Stearmans ended up as crop dusters, many found new homes as airshow performers. This civilian model features comm. radios and GPS. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Thanks to Ed for updating David Eckert's Stearman to FSX native

    I’ve created this scenery for my enjoyment and thought it would be fun to share my work with others. In this scenery package, there are a few addons that I have included with Hamilton and Palmdale airfields. My scenery includes an AI package. The AI package includes a traffic folder, AI aircraft and an AI Sound folder for the AI aircraft. Palmdale Army Airfield may or may not be time period correct, but then this is all about having fun. Install: If you have a later version of Hamilton you will need to uninstall it. After unzipping the FSX-Hamilton-Army-Air-Field-1939 to a folder of your choosing, you will find four folders in the unzipped folder . These folder are • Addon Scenery • Effects • Images • SimObjects 1. Copy all four folders in the Addon Scenery folder and past them into your FSX Addon Scenery folder. 2. Copy the contents of the Effects folder and paste into your FSX Effects folder. 3. Open the SimObjects/Airplane folder. Inside you will see six folders, Copy all six of the folders and paste them into your FSX Airplanes folder. 4. Now start FSX. Click on the “Settings” link on the left. In the nex t window click on the “Scenery Library” tab. Nex t click on the “Add Area” tab and add these folders……. • AI Traffic • Hamilton Army Air Field • KF WWII Towers • X_Static Objects Library 5. After having added each of the scenery folder in the above list, you should restart your Flight Simulator. OK Thant should about do it, all that’s left to do is to check out the new scenery. Hamilton Army Air Field’s ICAO code is “HRS” and Palmdale Army Airfield’s is “KPMD” Thank you, FSV1142 Kenny

    December 7, 1941 Flight Reenactment

    The Pearl Harbor Attack In response to the growing crisis in the Pacific, in early December 1941 four Boeing B-17C Flying Fortresses and two new B-17Es of the 30th Bombardment Group were flying cross country from New Orleans, Louisiana stopped at Hamilton on their way to Hickam AAF in Hawaii then on to Clark AAF in the Philippines to reinforce the 19th Bombardment Group stationed there. After leaving Hamilton, and flying all through the night, the bombers arrived over Oahu on the morning of December 7, 1941, and faced an unusual welcome. The B-17s had arrived over Oahu during the Japanese air attack on Hawaii which triggered America's entry into World War II. The B-17C Flying Fortresses arrived at Pearl Harbor at the height of the attack (radar operators mistakenly thought that the Japanese attack force was this flight arriving from California). Some of the planes managed to land at a short fighter strip at Haleiwa, one set down on a golf course, and the remainder landed at Hickam under the strafing of Japanese planes. In addition, twelve B-17Ds of the 5th Bombardment Group were parked on the ground at Hickam AAF during the attack. Five of these B-17s were destroyed, and eight were damaged. The B-17Es of the 7th Bombardment Group were moved back to Hamilton from Utah for deployment to the Far East. Six of them arrived in Hawaii just after the Pearl Harbor attack, but the rest of them were ordered to remain in the United States to defend California and were sent south to Muroc AAF near Rosamond. Flight Reenactment I would like to invite you to our annual reenactment of the B17 flight from Hamilton AFB San Rafael California to Hickman Air Force Base Honolulu, on December 8, 2018. We will take off from Hamilton Army Air Field December 7, 2019 arriving at Honolulu on December 8, 2019 at 07:30:00 Honolulu Time, to coincide with the attack on Pearl Harbor December 7 1941 at 07:00:00 Honolulu time. This flight is not for the faint of heart. Those making this flight will be looking at 12 to 14 hours of flight time.
