Re: Weather in your area 2017

Should be a fantastic day today with highs in the upper 70s and a light southerly wind. The nice weather continues into the weekend for us until Saturday night when a cold front is expected to bring a rather stout line of severe storms. Rain is good though.

Re: Weather in your area 2017

Same as above, except from the low 90s yesterday to upper 60s today with a driving north wind. Probably the last time we have temps in the 90s this year. Got some good rain though with the frontal passage overnight.

Pretty cool farewell video by United for the last remaining 747-400s (last 747s period) in its fleet.

Re: What made your day

The sequence of posts in the "Ban..." topic starting with Neocon's "Banned for not liking Alabama" - hilarious! I know, probably a case of being amused too easily but that just cracked me up. Totally made my day :D

Re: What are you listening to right now?

[avgeek]When I hear this piece of great composition I think of flying in a plane through the tops of clouds with the sunlight coming through in quick spurts.[/avgeek] Either way, a great piece of music by Johann Strauss, with justice done by Andre Rieu.

Re: Monarch Airlines ceased operation

I think I saw a few posts on airliners.net or FlyerTalk that Monarch was in the red. Can't remember when exactly I saw this but it wasn't too long ago.

Re: Monarch Airlines ceased operation

I had heard this airline was not doing well. Great livery, something unique in these times. Hopefully all the employees will get jobs elsewhere soon.

Re: Screencaps (Unedited)

^Sure! Send me a pm on which one/s you'd like to have. Can't say I'll have the exact one you're looking for but I do have several old ones from CSH, MXA and some from HNL. Also, check the "Replays" thread, I have some uploaded there as well.

Re: What are you listening to right now?

Great version of "Classical Gas" by Roberto Perera, the original being composed by Mason Williams. This one has a little Latin American flair, and got quite a lot of airtime on The Weather Channel's local forecasts back in the '90's.

The season of temperature swings has begun here. From the upper 90s last week to the low 60s yesterday for high temperatures. Must be Fall.

Enjoying some peaceful rain today, without hail, damaging winds and/or tornadoes. A novelty in the Southern Plains :P

Re: YSFlight 20170923 Test Version

So the question is, does this version have atleast 40 fps without the particle smoke on?

I also wish he would address the viewpoint and connection issues as well, at some point. But progress is good!
