Microsoft Flight Simulator: Official Strategies & Secrets (2000)
This software has new aircraft and cities, true elevation data, and real-world weather conditions to give a "true-to-life" experience. The guide is designed to complement the simulator's manual by covering often overlooked aspects of flight operations, from creating basic fight plans to supersonic flight procedures and Category III instrument approaches. There are tutorial flight plans prepared by a team of private, commercial, and airline transport pilots, as well as certified flight instructors' advice on how to use this flight simulator as a real-world training tool. It also includes tips and strategies for multiplayer flight on Microsoft's Gaming Zone, aircraft-specific performance charts, US airport approach plates, and a full-colour map to help navigate the skies of "Flight Simulator 2000".
McDonnell F-4E Phantom II
The McDonnell F-4 Phantom II successfully opened the era of the Mach 2 missile launching fighter and became the most widely used American supersonic fighter.
The U.S. Navy was the first to fly the F-4. In November of 1959, 16 of the prototype versions were delivered to the Navy, followed by 29 of what became the F-4A by June of 1961. The first page of the F-4 history book was written by the F-4A in November of 1961 by establishing a series of record breaking flights. Theses flights included a 1,606 mph world speed record, a climb to 49,212 feet in 114 seconds, and a zoom climb to 98,556 feet.
In March 1962, the U.S. Air Force ordered their first F-4s. From 1963 to 1966, 583 F-4Cs had been delivered to serve in 23 Tactical Command Squadrons and 505 RF-4Cs were delivered from 1964 to 1974.
The U.S. Navy F-4s were called into military action in August of 1965, when F-4Bs were used to escort a Navy strike in Vietnam. By 1973, Navy F-4s were credited with 32 victories over North Vietnamese Migs. Navy and Marine F-4s were usually confined to ground support roles.
The U.S. Air Force F-4s arrived in Southeast Asia in early 1965. Of the 179 aircraft imported from China by North Vietnam during the conflict, 137 were downed by the USAF. Of these 137, 107.5 were downed by F-4s, with the last Mig destroyed by an F-4D on January 8, 1973. Although highly effective in close in ground support, reconnaissance, and electronic warfare (ECM) roles the loss of Phantoms were high. By January 1, 1972, 362 Phantoms were lost, mostly to ground fire.
The F-4 was an instant success with domestic as well as foreign air forces. With their completion in 1979, 5,057 Phantoms had been built at the St. Louis, Missouri McDonnell assembly plant. Also by 1979, the F-4 and its versions had been delivered to or produced in Great Britain, Iran, Israel, The Republic of Korea, West Germany, Spain, Japan, Greece, Turkey, and Egypt. By 1977, the U.S. Navy had accepted 1,264 F-4s. By 1975, 1,631 F-4 versions remained in the U.S. Air Force active inventory and 117 in Air National Guard and Reserve units.
The aircraft on display at Castle Air Museum is an F-4E built in 1966. It started its career in the 33rd Tactical Fighter Wing at Eglin AFB, Florida in 1967. In March of 1969 it began its transformation into an Air Force Thunderbird to be assigned to the Air Demonstration Squadron at Nellis AFB, Nevada.
It served as an Air Force Thunderbird for five outstanding years where it earned the nick name "Super-fine 289", finally moving back into Tactical Fighter Wing duty in 1974. After several stateside duty assignments, this aircraft was eventually processed into storage in March of 1991 at Davis-Monthan AFB, Arizona.
In January of 1995, the Castle Air Museum received permission from the Air Force to bring this F-4 to our museum for restoration. After hundreds of volunteer man-hours of re-assembly, and a whole new coat of paint, our newest addition to the museum was ready for a formal dedication on February 10, 1996.
We are very proud of this aircraft. Restored to its former glory representing U.S. Air Force Thunderbird number 6, 66-0289 joins only four other F-4 Thunderbirds that have been restored.
"First Shipboard Takeoff"
"First Shipboard Takeoff"
As the Twentieth Century dawned, not long after an Army-Navy board undertook a study of ``flying machines'' and envisioned their potential for use in warfare, Naval Aviation was born.
The first officer selected for flight training was Lieutenant T. G. Ellyson, who received orders in December 1910 to undergo instruction with Glenn Curtiss, producer of the first practical hydroplane. A month earlier, another Curtiss pilot, Eugene Ely, was the first to take off from the deck of a ship, proving that aircraft could fly from ships. In November 1910, he took off from a temporary platform built on the bow of the cruiser USS BIRMINGHAM, then in Hampton Roads, Virginia. Ely intended to take off while the ship was underway, but a bank of fog kept the cruiser at anchor; Ely took off anyway, as depicted in the Naval Aviation bronze relief. On a subsequent trial in January 1911, he successfully landed and took off from the battleship USS PENNSYLVANIA anchored in San Francisco Bay in what could be considered the first carrier operation. Six months later, the Navy received its first airplanes, and a year after that, Lieutenant Ellyson demonstrated the feasibility of catapult launching of aircraft from ships. Naval Aviation was on its way into the history books.
The Navy has taken different approaches to integrating aeronautics with the fleet‹from yesteryears' flying boats and pontoon aircraft for non-carrier ships and lighter-than-air craft to today's full spectrum of carrier and land-based aircraft. Naval aviators today can pursue or support almost every possible mission faced by naval forces. Fighter planes, bombers and attack aircraft, patrol and electronic warfare aircraft, antisubmarine aircraft, cargo planes, search and rescue aircraft, helicopters all of these comprise the Naval Aviation front line, a versatile and powerful extension of the sea-based aircraft carriers and battle groups that are at the heart of the U. S. Navy's effectiveness as an instrument of national policy.
The Naval Aviation bronze relief is sponsored by the Association of Naval Aviation.

Taking Flight With OWLs examines computer technology use in writing centers. Its purpose is to move beyond anecdotal evidence for implementing computer technology in writing centers, presenting carefully considered studies that theorize the move to computer technology and examine technology use in practice.
Writing centers occupy a dynamic position at the crossroads of computers and composition, distance education, and composition theory, pulling ideas, theories, and pedagogies from each. Their continuing evolution necessarily involves increasing use of computer technology. The move to computer technology so far has occurred so rapidly that writing center staff and administration have not yet had much time or opportunity to study how and when to infuse it into their programs. The need for this collection is evident: Writing center practitioners have long discussed their roles in relation to their supporting institutions; now they are challenged to explore--even reinvent--their roles as computer technologies transform centers and institutions. In exploring varied stages of technology-infusion through field-based accounts, this volume offers readers an important and unique resource.
