I've been thinking, and this is just a theory: There are two Concordes that reside in the United States. Alpha Golf is in Seattle, and Alpha Delta is at the Intrepid museum. There are so many people that visit AD as it's in New York City and it is one of the highlights of the Intrepid museum and of New York in general. It is obvious that AD won't fly again, as her engines were removed and her hydraulic system was completely drained. However as far as I know, the GPU connector is still intact. With a generator, proper know-how and with the museum's permission, of course, we could v
Does everyone else always get the momentary hydraulic master warning when they extend the landing gear on final approach? This seems to be cause by the yellow pumps being on-loaded on gear selection which then causes the hydraulic pressure to increase before dipping below the warning level (which causes the warning) before increasing to normal again. I know this happened to David Rowland, Les Brodie and Roger Bricknell on the famous ITVV film coming into LHR but by the surprise that Roger got I don't think it was a normal occurrence.... It seems that whenever the hydraulics are powered i
Firstly, it is great being able to fly my favourite aircraft in P3d v3 and she seems to fly even better than in FSX. I'm just wondering if anyone else's hydraulic pump magnetic indicators read "off" when in fact the pumps are "on" and the pressure is normal? I know it did this in FSX so am I assuming correctly that this will stay this way? Also, is there a way to keep the parking brake at "emergency" to simulate the alternate system or will using the foot brakes always return the lever to "normal" like a Boeing...?! Many thanks for a brilliant simulation. Frazz
