RE: Who Was First With Fly-by-wire

I think it was like this:
Airbus didn't mention an error in the engines sometimes not being able to spool up when flying low.

After the accident all A320's were repaired. This is what i read from AirDisaster.

RE: Flight Plans And Pmdg 737NG

The FS9 flight planning system is not sophisticated enough for real life. I just plan my routes in an external planner and put these in the FMC.

RE: Atmospheric Effects On Contrails

The contrails are comparible to the window drops at your home. When it's cold outside, and you breathe agains the window, little drops will appear on the window. An airplane's exhaust gasses are also hot, and this way humidity concentrates in the air. It's a sort of artificial clowd. Clowds dissolve...

Refueling On Engine Power.

On Stephen Kings "The Langoleers" there are no fuel trucks with working engines to punp fuel in the wing. The pilot connects the hose to the wing, and then uses power from the 767's jet engines to suck fuel in the wing.
This is nonsense right?

The standard aircraft of FS2004 are even not close to the real thing, But for instance the precisionmanuals 737NG is as real as it gets, cause boeing helped them a hand with implementing real-life aerodynamics and behaviour.
