Re: YSFHQ Theme 757 Repaint Contest

As I said I'm no good with Blender. Here is something I did with paint.

Read the note. I'd still like to enter an idea that needs Blender, if anyone will help. :)

Re: UA777 emergency landing at HNL

Denied. Makes more sense to have many threads in aviation news, otherwise aviation news subforum becomes meaningless and there would be only one thread, really, at a time. A relevent thread title will get more attention anyway. For comparison, I might not click on current projects for example, but ...

UA777 emergency landing at HNL

A UA 777 had an engine cover blow off, and had to make an emergency landing in Honolulu. All on board are fine, if a bit shook up. A w...

Re: Thought of the day.

Not to my liking. Wonder what the NASA 747 (in the background, during the last few seconds) was doing there?

Re: Request: Northrop YA-9

I'm no good at making things like that. But to me, it looks similar to the Frogfoot. maybe that could be an idea, for a starting point, for any builders. http://wallpaperesque.com/wp-content/uploads/plixpapers1504/sukhoi_su-25_frogfoot_wallpaper_background_32464.jpg https://www.cybermodeler.com/airc...

Re: YSFHQ Theme 757 Repaint Contest

I've checked with Welshy, and found it's OK to work as a team. I have a couple of ideas, but can't get on with Blender.
Anyone want to work with me on this contest? PM me if you do, thanks.

its at 10:30 PM in INdiA. Itll be impossible for me to watch. :(
If it's having a live stream, it may well get put on You Tube, sometime later. Or bits of it might.
Here are highlights from a YSF event in 2015. (Video not by me.) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9A1HUL9fbkw

Been thinking of taking part in a show. Do you have to land at the end of your display? That's the only thing I'm not to good with. :lol:

Re: United Kindom preview and comments.

One very minor error. It's R.A.F. Lossiemouth, not RN. Also it would be R.N.A.S. if it was a royal navy airbase.
Otherwise great work, as normal Gunny. :)

Re: Airlander 10

The link said it automatically deflated for safety, so it might have failed as intended and be relatively easy to fix. Being a kite flyer, I know the large soft kites have a similar system. They are flown on multiple lines, one, or more will fail at a certain pull. The others then, by how they are ...

Re: Monarch Airlines ceased operation

Said in one of today's UK papers, that Ryanair would be looking at getting as many pilot's from them, if they went bust. To help them with thier own problem.
