The rich in the US could still see the Rockettes during WW2, it's not like EVERYONE went to war or the US was totally destroyed like Europe and Japan. As for the epidemics you noted, they were just that, not a pandemic that engulfed the whole world. What do you know about the Radio City Rocketts. T...Jump to post
Not to hijack the thread, but would anyone recommend getting a Fire tablet just for Kindle and streaming? I saw that Amazon was selling the tablets at a steep discount (not anymore though), and was considering getting one and just use the iPad for general social media and/or other items that requir...Jump to post
What I haven´t understood about this new FS is if there are differences between the PC and the Xbox version. A good Gaming PC or Laptop cost well above a 1000 Euros, more in the 1200/1300 euros range for Laptops, whereas a Xbox can be bought for less than 300 euros. Will the two versions be equally...Jump to post

That surprises me. There's been a 737 since I first started way back on FS98. Ah well, if we can get used to no Meigs Field then the loss of the 737 will be fine. No doubt there'll be expansions on the horizon, as you say. I think I'm going to try the standard edition on Game Pass to see how well my...Jump to post

What was wrong with the original Coming To America ? Well nowadays I'm sure the SJW brigade would be up in arms about negative African stereotypes, plus Eddie Murphy played a white "stereotypical" Jewish man. I personally love the film, along with Trading Places; which did have Dan Akroyd...Jump to post
I wonder how the upcoming sequel to Coming to America will be, because the original certainly wouldn't have been made nowadays.Jump to post

Thing is though, the Astoria isn't all that special. Sure as the Stockholm it had a bit of infamy but since then it was totally stripped to an empty husk, superstructure removed and rebuilt as a completely unrecognisable ship to eventually become the Astoria.Jump to post
I've been having a go at Italian on Duolingo for the last few weeks. I had no prior knowledge of Italian (although I do come across some similarities between Italian and French/Spanish which I studied in school). I can now converse very basically with an Italian coworker. Although I do find my writt...Jump to post
They’ll shift the runway about 50-feet and call it good. This will allow both runways to operate simultaneously. Think half of LAX. What on earth are you talking about......or don't you know? They won’t get a second runway, so they’ll move the on they have, increase separation, boost capacity by 20...Jump to post
I feel that the Sovereign of the Seas and Monarch of the Seas that are currently in the Pullmantar fleet should go to another cruise line like Celestyal as I heard that the company is looking for a third ship and I feel that they have a number of years in service left. Also, if that fails, they sho...Jump to post
Atlanta has some of the worst traffic in the US. Also headquarters for cnn, cocacola, and other companies But clearly must still not have enough to make the list. :scratchchin: I guess so......

Anyways, were there any other reasons World shut down? I sure miss them. I had a memory of my first flight when I was barely one, a Southwest flight to San Fransisco. I saw this sleek and elegant Trijet on the taxiway, with others of the same type on the apron near the cargo area. The first questio...Jump to post
What is it like driving a prison bus on icy roads, including in sleet and freezing rain? I am wondering this as there are some unique challenges carrying prisoners in those potentially dangerous conditions. That's hella specific, but allow me to answer. It's easier than driving a bus full of kids b...Jump to post

I loved the PMDG MD-11! I'll be watching this thread, I'd like to get it running in FSX:SE too. There is an MD-11 for FSX by Sky Simulations.

Hi guys What happens these days is a nightmare everywhere in the world. Do you think there is a chance to have some holidays in August ?

Could some passenger jets still fly without passengers, at reduced frequency? It's my understanding that belly freight is very lucrative, and some models such as the 777 can carry a huge amount. So, for example, BA could consolidate the freight from a couple of their JFK flights into one aircraft wi...Jump to post

I believe humans really landed on the moon with Apollo 11. I believe 9/11 happened as stated, no inside job.

In fact, I don't think there are any conspiracy ...Jump to post
I'll admit I wasn't too familiar with her until I saw the movie, which coincidentally was on very recently here in the UK. I'm sure the movie was given a few little Hollywood tweaks, but her and her colleagues certainly did a fine job and I'm glad she did eventually get the recognition she deserved.Jump to post
