Hey WannabeQF here is a hint - those of us who DO fly 'the heavy metal' don't EVER refer to it as such...in fact we are mostly deeply embarrassed by RT phraseology that requires us to include the phrase 'heavy' and, outside of the yanks, don't seem to use it much...except maybe on line checks

Might help you not blow your 'cover' next time you want to 'contribute'

Its school holiday time again?

Anyone else wondering if Wannabe has flown a real airplane?

But to give him credit I don't think I could keep ahead of said mooney at 220kts

And now you "only fly the heavy metal..." and are seem here ridiculing the statements of pilots you couldn't hope to match in your wildest dreams, quoting figures for aircraft you have never even seen for real -beyond flight sims of course...

Heads up kiddie. You are known, as is your other persona here too, incidentally. Get your hand off it child.

Your average Mooney is good for 155-160KTAS
True maybe for the J versions... With just 4 cylinders on 33 litres per hour, that really is not unimpressive. Tell ya what, do it with just 45 litres of fuel in the tanks - then make it a minimum of a 30 minutes legal flying.

OK, so those guzzling 6 pots don't like a fuel restriction? Will just have to bring out the K or if we really want to leave em for dead we wont need Wannabe's 220kt Acclaim, the R will be quite adequate to see off those two...

Mooney - still unbeatable! This is what the winner (of those two) will see..

Won't the winner be out front?

Nothing wrong with Mooneys...except the company seems to have a revolving door policy with bankruptsy

Since you're obviously into simulation instead of the real thing maybe you should invest in one of these. It might help your vision issues as well.

Completely unacceptable

Much Ado

Mean looking machine, would have to have very strong, or pehaps very elastic wing tips, vision on ground would be non existent!!

That would be a Duchess and the gauge on the left engine would be the outside air temp gauge mounted on the windshield.
