I spent the night (due to insomnia) tootling about on my Android flight sim.

Did a DHL 757 from Manchester to Heathrow. I don't know what the pilots will make of my accuracy re: take off and landing stats. My report card:

Do you try and fly the approaches in accordance with the charts (if they're available?).

1463fpm rate of descent seems a bit spicy for a 3 degree glide slope? More like 6 degree, which would make sense with that -2.7deg G/S deviation.

I don't mate. On the RFS, you have to plan the flight and the AP just follows that to different points. There's no manual way of routing to different ways without flying manually so what happens is when you get on to finals, you hit the approach button before I bimble around with final flaps etc. When I'm about 1500 above, I switch to manual control.

I'm sure when Flight Sim 2020 is released for the Xbox - a proper sim - I guess I might start trying to learn charts and other such things.

A USAF KC-10 dragging two USAF F-16's out from the Gulf and just left the coast of Israel. Destination unknown.

No escort and from what others online are speculating, the lack of a Government jet was a snub by Donald.
However, as his security is now provided by the Secret Service it will have all the necessary standards applied - irrespective of which jet Donald thought suitable!
 
Those founding fathers has no idea of geography when they named their settlements, did they?
A few years back a freighter left a port on the east coast of USA bound for Aberdeen near Baltimore. Guess where it ended up?


Lots of happy Jockenese farmers as it was carrying a load of pre-fabricated farm building which were sold off at knock down prices

Aye I didn't notice until you pointed it out but you're right, the States is full of names of UK towns and cities. I mean, I counted four just in that screenshot.

Reminds of one a couple of years ago of a Eastern Euro trucker setting out for Gibraltar...

He ended up down a tiny track in Skegness after following his Sat Nav. It took him to Gibraltar Point.

There is a story that persists in the ops room of a USAF transport aircraft who was given direct Dover. Part way round his 180 degree turn he was asked wtf he was doing, "turning for Dover" was the reply - in this case Dover AFB from where he had departed some hours previously.
