I'm still effectively offline most of the time, occassionally I can get onto the server at non-peak times but evenings very rarely. Just thought I'd say hi to all and let you know that I'm still about. If they ever fix my broadband it'll be business as usual!!
Sometimes stuff is supposed to fall off....sometimes not.
I still can't be sure which... :?

Flew a very useful 4-ship instructional sortie. All went well until right at the end, when a previously dead Tunguska was resurrected, just as I and my No2 were overflying it, going after the last target. We each collected 2 SA-19s and had to walk home - but at least we hit the target, about 15 secs before the missiles hit us.

I presume that this was the mission re-spawning destroyed targets after a certain period. Not seen it before, and it came as quite a shock.

Probably not much we can do about it, but other users may wish to take note. It's hard enough to kill Tunguskas safely, without avenging Zombie-Tunguska's leaping from their graves!

Joe, as promised, I have attached to this post my full Flight Reference Cards check-list for the A-10C in .pdf format. It includes all the checks I use, and you will see that there is a page on using the Maverick.

If you don't already use a Kneeboard I do suggest doing so. There is a useful MOD available in the ED Forums (Mods thread), which will allow you to import pdfs and enter them in a kneeboard which you can position anywhere on your screen. I always use FRCs, and lots of other 'memory-joggers' as befits my senior age.

I also attach a one-page 'Cheat-sheet' of the main HOTAS buttons. This is always pinned up next to my monitor when I fly the A-10.

Yes, I also carry the AD units capability figures on my paper Kneeboard. However, I find it better to list controls by purpose rather than position, and limit myself to time-critical ones; those that I might need in a hurry.
