Always find it interesting to come across threads that were hot for quite some time and then just die for no apparent reason.

Info on how to use the old RandomAircraft bot (which was before the Birth of Discobot and I am pretty surprised still works!) here.


#367

Let me check that @wxbot is still alive or not. It’s been a while…

@fearlessfrog METAR raw report: CYVR 301800Z 00000KT 30SM FEW005 FEW020 05/03 A3016 RMK CF1SC1 CF TR SC TR SLP214.


#368

Well I’m fairly stumped here I don’t have a deep knowledge of Japanese amphibious aircraft lol


#369

Yeah, the bot is nice that it is (semi) random, but man alive does it grab some obscure ones. I’ll do another. To do one just put the text

 [RandomAircraft]

…and it’ll try fetch one from Wikipedia and replace the post. If it doesn’t work, just delete and retry (sometimes the image grab is a bit flaky)

Oooohhh, I know that one, I have it for FSX.
It is the Sea Bee


#373

Technically its a Twin Bee, but since that’s a conversion I’d still give it to ya.


#374

You are right. It did look a bit weird with the two engines.
