Re: Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020

I'm still stubbornly running Win7 so it can't be on my list for the moment. As and when I can afford a new rig that will handle it easily, I guess it will come with W10 so will have to make the change then. As for the time, I'll then need at least a week to download it as due to my location I max ou...

Re: Canon 90D or 6D MkII

The 90D is a newer camera and from the comparisons looks to have more AF points so unless you're wanting the FF for any particular reason (the 90D will have the same crop sensor as you're used to in the 1200D so lenses will perform the same albeit with the benefit of a much more modern sensor and mo...

Re: 05/06/20 NOTAM

Looked glorious in the evening sun and with thanks to the Brize controller who took her north of Burford I was actually sun side of her for the return over me at 19.25. Looked as though she went out on long finals so would have thought it was landing about 19.35-ish.

On 252.875, sounds like Elton 01?
Yes, agreed, just caught him briefly on one of the Swanwick channels and it sounded much more like this.

Re: Iris Simulations *FREE*

Thanks very much, looking back thru notes though it looks as though the one I bought and then lost with an HDD crash was almost 500MB as an installer file.

Guessing this one may be the early FS9 one that was ported over for FSX?

Re: Photo storage

As a storage platform it's fine. Before you buy any of their paid plans, do you have Amazon prime? If so they offer free photo storage - including RAW files - and it's entirely unlimited, as part of your Prime subscription. (I've got about 3TB backed up) Thanks very much Chris, didn't realise that ...
