If you do another Thursday evening, I will try and join you, as thursdays
are my normal IVAO night. However last night I was flogging round
Northamptonshire in a Lancaster practicing for the Vatsim Sywell Air
Display. What I found remarkable is how you can fly a 15 minutes routine
to within 10 seconds every time, if you rigorously control your airspeed
and turning points.
