Just wanted to let those of you who were not aware of what happens in an Airbus after we takeoff the ground and the important checks that must be done.

Rotation, gear up 4 green!

1. Check the newspaper to see if we won in the loto
2. Check our hair in the mirror for the incoming flight attendent
3. Check out our F/O inquiry about a problem with his crossword puzzle
4. Check out the flight attendent Wink
5. Check to make sure we still have fuel
6. Then go back to more the important checks such as enough sugar and cream in the coffee

and at last Gear Down and Land.

Finally check out any possible dinner invitations from flight attendents.

Doors open

LUNCH! AHHHH the life of an Airbus Captain Smile

Tim,
"Rotation, gear up 4 green!" Is the 4th light for the tailwheel which is needed to avoid tail strikes when the computers go haywire? Rolling Eyes All the other things you mentioned, I can do in the comfort of my living room (even the landing,... on my couch) and not in a cramped cockpit (even an Airbus cockpit) & a lot cheaper than the 70 odd thousand dollars you have spent in your sim. Now, for REAL excitement, come on over to the dark side, you know... the side where you actually get to FLY an airplane Razz

Maurice
ps. Sorry Peter, but the target was just too easy not to take a shot at.

Hmmm !!! Think Could Tim REALLY believe I fell for a cheap stunt like this? Rolling Eyes Would he not know I had to have known this was just bait? Could he not have been aware that I am smarter than this? Or was he just looking for a cheap thrill to offset those brainless hours over the Pacific? If only he could have something useful to do other than counting the bugs on his windshield that he killed shortly after take-off (the ones that were watching a few feet above ground & got too close because they didnít believe this was really an airplane that could fly d'oh! ).
I guess we'll never really know Think

Maurice
ps. I guess I must be a sucker for a good friendly fight Very Happy I MUST control my urges, I MUST... REALLY. By the way, sorry about the left couch. You can't have it since it's too close to the fridge & assorted 'beverages', and Boeing drivers need to remain sober, unlike .... well, no need to elaborate.

I thought the 4th green was for the nose gear cocked at 90 degrees?

While you are on the subject....did you check her I/O system for possible wrong wiring, those thing happen... maybe she had native support for your phidget and that extra software was not necessary after all...look at Tim...he would have saved a lot of time with his overhead knowing that!!!
