What an amazing last few days it has been weather wise!  Temps have been way above normal. The rain kinda sucks, but I definitely would have rain over snow anyday!

Not a whole lot has changed since I blogged last.  Been working a story with some national news stations and magazines. Other than that, same ol same ol.

I am watching this pretty good movie called 13th Warrior.  Pretty good movie.

FSX Flights

I have been playing my flight simulator a lot recently.  I always make at least one flight a day on it. But recently I been doing many flights. I added a few new add ons as well. Like realistic weather and a few extra aircraft.

I added the Diamond DA20-100 Katana 4X Add-On. This one they hyped up in the description of it, so i bought it based on that. I normally wait awhile to get stuff so i can read user reviews. I should of waited this time instead of just buying it right away, lol.  I can not complain too much though. I do like it, but not for that price.  Nice plane to fly, pretty simple. But I have yet to find all the controls on it.

I also bought the Skychaser addon, I like that alot. The only thing I dont care for on that add on is the flight control stick is very touchy. You barely move the joystick and you are upside down. I know it is a stunt plane and all, but I think the developers went a lil over board (or underboard) on the control system.

I also bought the activesky addon. I do admit i like this addon alot. I was able to fly in hurricanes and OMG my aircraft was nailed by lightning strikes 3 times!  I was flying sideways, to go straight.  But it was all worth it when I came into the eye of the hurricane.  Was pretty neat to watch the eye wall move as I flew. I tried staying in it, but the storm was moving faster than my plane (I was flying into the winds) and then the hurricane swallowed my plane again. I ended up landing on a small island in the ocean, while in the middle of a hurricane! Talk about intense. This add on is one the best ones I have added to date.

Plane Spotting At Rockford Airport

I briefly went planespotting out at the Rockford Airport (KRFD)  yesterday.  There was not a lot of action going on in the skies. OK, there was NO action in the skies, LOL.   But there was a couple aircraft on the Emery ramp.

The first one was N9648Q that is registered to the GREEN BAY FLYING CLUB INC.  It was parked up near the Emery building. According to Flight Aware it came in yesterday from KGRB just before 10 am.  I was out there approx. 12:15 pm.   It departed after I left around 2 pm back up to Milwaukee. So i was only able to see it while it it was parked on the ramp.

 

The next plane was a Cirrus SR22 with the tail number of N320TD.  They occupants were in the aircraft and it appeared they were prepping their aircraft to takeoff. They were also parked on the Emery ramp but facing to the south. As if they were getting ready to taxi out soon. The pilot revved up the engine for a few minutes. I think he was warming it up a bit before flight.  I didn’t realize it at the time, but the pilot and passengers were staring at me while I was taking the photos. If I would have known that, I would of waved.  I was focused on my camera and getting the photos while planespotting. According to Flight Aware, this aircraft is blocked. Which might explain why they were so curious to why i was photographing them, LOL.   I didn’t know that until I got home to do this article.

 

I tried getting some photos of the United Express aircraft that were parked on the ramp, but at the viewpoint I was at, my photos did not turn out so well. As you can see below, LOL

Quick Blog December 6th 2015

Just making a quick blog.  It is super foggy outside. Kind of reminds me of the horror movie called “The Fog”   that would be crazy it that came true, LOL. They joys of this time of the year, many foggy nights.

Not a whole lot going on.  I picked up a few games on the internet. OOTP16 and Franchise Hockey Manager 2.    I dont really care too much for the hockey one.  I am not too much of a hockey fan in the first place, so maybe it is because I do not understand it. The OOTP16 is good. I like the improvements this year. Little ones, but you can definitely tell a difference though

Listening to coast to coast am.  It is an episode from a few days ago.  Listening to this ambulance personnel talk about his personal experiences with the paranormal.  Definitely interesting.

Quick Blog:

Everything is back up and running normally. Still adding some features and all. But the main part is ready 🙂   I can finally relax and get some rest. Spent many sleepless hours over the last few weeks.

Today is national skywarn spotters recognition day!   I want to send out to all the skywarn spotters out there. Keep up the good work. I am proud to be working next to you guys/gals. As you know severe can and will happen at anytime and any day of the year.  Mother nature has proven that.
