Next question springs to mind as I was about to start a farm strip assignment, having finished watching the Inspector Lindley episode. I'd normally use the current weather but set the time to something in daylight. Is this still possible, when on IVAO, or will it highlight the fact that I appear to be flying VFR during the hours of darkness?

Both distances are wrong. Great circle distance from IOM to Gatwick is 239nm. Standard airways routing would add about 7% to this so say 255nm for going via A20 and L10 - which makes IVAO the better of the two guesses. I'll have to look at the JHB IVAO page to see what happens after you file a report. I presume it automatically adds to the airlines totals. bones -----Original Message----- From: jhb_airlines-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:jhb_airlines-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of franklyn fisher Sent: 16 August 2007 19:47 To: jhb_airlines@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [jhb_airlines] PIREP Just completed my first IVAO PIREP form. Needles to say, I was not prepared for the amount of information required. Must set up a proper log book, and enter all the required information at the end of the flight. FSC gave me a flight distance of 216nm, (EGKK-EGNS) but the IVAO database said 274, must have shaved off nearly 50nm somewhere. Mind you, the FSC database is not foolproof. Will have to get the routing elsewhere. Impressed at the way the blue dots following me and each side of me, changed to a yellow aircraft shape, when within 12nm, on the FSC screen, assume this was the TCAS warning. FF
