Thought some of you may be interested...I have never seem a WW2 plane start up procedure before...

Could you imagine doing this every time you fly in SOW:BOB? May get very tedious...

http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gifPersonally i would love the option of being able to do it all.After all if this sim is going to be realistic it should be available for those that want to use it.Don't forget you need'nt ever start the engine yourself,thats what the groundcrew did during scrambles whilst the pilot got into the plane and was buckled in http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
Don't remove options from those that want them,just be able to simplify for your own personal use. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Today, pilots have a paper checklist to work from. This avoids memory failures!

In WW2 IIRC the checks were from memory involving pneumonics.

not for me, I would love do this take off procedure. but I don't have much hope that Oleg will put this in SOW. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/disagree.gif

Who knows what Oleg is up to.

At least it's a very interesting video and it really is an eyeopener to the many skinners that still think you can see the internal structure on the surfaces normally covered by the control-surfaces.... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

The training vids from Zeno's collection all show the pilots using checklists, and being told not to rely on their memory.

from that banana forum...

we don't plan to make for each aircraft 100% precise start of engine..

True, but you find after doing it quite a few times you know what to do without the checklist. I can still go through the start up checks for the Vigilant Motor glider and I've not flown one for years! lol.

Wouldn't mind the option of being able to do it, but it is a lot slower and more cumbersome to have to use a mouse because you can't flick the switches.
