Hell, brilliant!

I go to a blank MSN page when I follow your link @piper.
I think this is the original article link?

Unfortunately when I go to that link and read the article all of the images are not being shown…

This Yahoo link for the article is showing all of the images to me and it seems to be a verbatim copy of the original article at Business Insider.

Great read! This reminds me: I need to turn on some failure options in my missions. I’m sure there’s not a button for that but, what the heck. If, in the back of my mind, something might go wrong…

One of my favourite missions in DCS is the museum relic mission where you are on a positioning flight and you hear a loud bang and its prompts you to look for a failure and solve it and get it landed.

It’s brilliantly written and very engaging for a simple a -b type mission. Caught me off guard and taught me things about instrument scanning
