I can also remove all of the passengers and luggage and can add passengers one by one in which I have done by adding only 5 people, I can tell if the system trips up, my take off time will be off and I take a look at my load, sure enough a full house Cool this system has lots of goodies on it Wink

Yes Robert, the speed, ground speed, altitude, weather effects etc have all been checked, the stairs can be dropped , but only in the locked position. I have put hours and hours into testing each given task to insure it's as close as we can be to "realistic flying" I can change the dates, times and go from daylight to dusk, dawn and evening, even the stars are correct according to Georger.

MrShutter: I know you took into account the amount and weight of fuel, did you make allowances for the other types of weight on the plane (people, luggage, etc.)
Or would that amount of weight make any difference?

The reason I ask - I was on a flight not too long ago (a connector flight - just one section) and the flight attendant asked for a volunteer in the first four rows to take a seat in the back. Folks in the back joked that their diets were going better than they thought :).
Incidentally, there was someone in the first row that was rather large but I don't know if that had anything to do with anything.
Wondered about all that ever since - I mean with all the weight on a plane, what effect would moving one average size person to the back have?

Dang you answered part of my question before i got it posted.

ETA>>>I realize that luggage and people weight would effect flying - guess my question should be how much does one person affect it - and - would the fact that you might not know how much people weighed or how much luggage, etc was on the flight be a significant factor in the overall project.

I forget how many yrs I have posted here and you forget I have 18 yrs into this - I was not stirring the pot. I was trying to point out that posters in the thread have been used as puppets - I will NOT name them, but there have been several over the yrs.

What Cook was stating about Blevins is NOTHING any of you guys have not done is this thread. Cook figured Blevins out in 2010.

YOU WILL note my posts recently are only about what I know and an exploration of my life with a man who TOLD me he was DAN COOPER. That does NOT put me in the Blevins category.

WinkSmile I forgot to post the passenger part while commenting to Robert, I posted about the same time as you did on your question

I can put them where ever I wish in the cabin, I can also add and remove luggage, as mentioned above it makes a big difference with a empty plane vs a full one. I can take off with what ever amount of fuel I wish, I can dump the fuel as well, Microsoft put a lot of features in the simulator and then the Dreamfleet 727 tops it off with more features, very realistic in many many ways.

took me a long time to learn how to manually start the plane, was using the "Turn key" prior to learning Cool

the system is not that sensitive to pick up one fat guy moving around the cabin Wink real life, don't know if it would make a difference.

I guess you can guesstimate the luggage. The people getting off the plane looked like light travelers to meSmile

In the meantime, maybe one of the pilots on here can answer my real-life question about why the flight attendant asked for one passenger to move toward the back Crazy. I'm always amazed that the plane can even get off the ground with all the carry-on and stowed luggage aboard.

Smokin, you mentioned it was a "connector" flight which implies a small aircraft, maybe 50 passengers or less.

The point of having a passenger move from the front of the aircraft to the rear was to move the center-of-gravity rearwards by, in this case, probably no more than a small fraction of an inch.

The center-of-gravity has to be within a specified range for the aircraft to be legal to fly. While it is better to have the CG to far forward rather than to far aft of the specified range, for legal operations it must be within the range.

With the CG to far aft of the legal limit, the aircraft becomes "squirrelly" and hard to hand fly. If the CG is moved a bit further aft and is behind the aerodynamic neutral point, the control problems are greatly increased as the aircraft will not be statically stable.

In the problem as quoted, the CG was apparently a bit further forward than the crew wanted it to be. This situation improves the static stability but makes the aircraft more difficult to maneouver. And the movement of a single passenger as quoted is not going to cause any great movement in the CG.

As far as the aircraft being able to get off the ground with a load of people and cargo, just believe your eyes.

Re: [georger] Categories! [In reply to] Can't Post

Unless you guys are idiots you know exactly what I mean.

The subjects presented by Cook, Blevins, The Thread, Mr. Sxxx, and any suspect anyone has brought forward are all SECOND HAND information about their suspect.

In my case it was a man I was married to for 17 yrs and who confessed to the crime. This is a completely different category than someone picking a suspect out of a box or from a new article and creating a story.

There is NOT one writer or person out there who has presented a suspect - they lived with and personally knew. Why JO WEBER does NOT fit into the categories with the writers and "investigators" of other suspects.


Think about this for a little while and put yourselves in my shoes!
This is something that has affected my life and something I have personally lived thru.

If one is unable to understand my position do NOT try to put me down or attack me. What if SOMEDAY it becomes evident Weber was Cooper or was involved in some manner by association?

What if it was YOUR brother or YOUR father or YOUR Spouse. My accounting are 1st hand and not second hand - this does NOT put me in the category of others.

My memories are of a woman who was 39 yrs old on that trip in 1979 - not a child. My memories are those from living with this man for 17 yrs - not someone I heard TALES about.

What would you do if it was your sister or mother or wife being classified in a "category" with individual who were only seeking some kind of status? THE only thing I want to know about IS my husband's past - regardless of what it was - and for the unaccounted yrs the FBI ignored be MADE available, if to no one else - to me in privacy with a confidentiality agreement.

I had promised myself I would remain neutral - but there are some of you in this thread who only like to encite things.....and the rest of what I am thinking does not need to be verbalized.

Marla's Father told her that his brother did it, she didn't go public or even know who Cooper was for some time? sound familiar?

his prints and DNA came back negative, but she still claims LD is Cooper...sound familiar?

LD was in the service and lived in Oregon....sound familiar?

Marla said LD lost the money on the way down, she must be the second person to know what happened to the money...sound familiar?

not so much a category, it's the same story, just worded a little different.....

Jo, By your own admission you had never heard of D.B. Cooper until a few days before Duane Weber died. And you didn't know who Cooper was until a year or so after Duane's death.

As far as knowing anything about Cooper, living with Duane 17 years or so didn't provide you with any meaningful information.

And you have spent another 17 years or so trying to prove that Duane was Cooper without coming up with a SINGLE piece of evidence. So calm down.

At least Blevins has put his candidate in a parachute, in the Pacific Northwest at the general time of the hijacking, and with airline experience. But even that does NOT mean that KC is Cooper.

The only thing you have come up with on Duane is that he was an unsuccessful criminal with more than 27 arrests, that the FBI knows about, and spent a lot of time in more prisons than I can remember. Duane also carried a concealed weapon until late in his life, obtained a Florida driver's license in another name through fraud, and was generally a bad ass.

Leaving a $20 bill on the dresser after seducing and robbing women can hardly be considered a redeeming quality.

I have a nvidia 1gig video card, not the best though. my processor was weak (AMD 2.61 GHZ) single core.

upgraded to 3.4 Pentium D dual core
better power supply for a better video card.
was maxed out at 2gigs memory. (old machine)
upgraded to 4 gigs, new puter allows up to 8 on 64 bit
this should be well in the limits of runing the system properly. the best option was to replace rather than
upgrading the processor, motherboard, power supply etc.

the system was running fine until I put upgrades onto the sim(addons) the final hit the machine took was
the new weather system addon. too many running programs for the processor Cool

In my opinion you are exactly right. There has to be more information in the FBI files and I doubt very much if they will ever release it if there is no solution to this hijacking.

If Cooper's remains were found tomorrow, the FBI would probably have everything fleshed out and in a neat bundle secured with red, white, and blue ribbons within a few hours.

all of these stories are much like a script, they follow the evidence trail and present a story, LE has to keep something important back in order to flush out the story teller. the 3 guys who escaped from Alcatraz, Morris and anglin brother has been unsolved for 50 years, but, nobody has come forward with a wild story of how they made it, simple reason, there names are known!!!Cool

Reportedly, the body of one of the Anglin brothers was sighted on the day they disappeared just outside the Golden Gate Bridge by a ship that was headed to the Far East. The ship couldn't stop but radioed the Coast Guard the position information. However, the Coast Guard did not have a means to go out and pick up the body at that specific time. So the body was never recovered and no evidence of the other two escapees fates was ever found.

Re: [mrshutter45] Categories! [In reply to] Can't Post

I agree with the idea that the FBI is probably holding back one or two (at least) key pieces of information about the hijacking. Obvious reason is to weed out potential confessors and/or suspects. This is standard procedure in major cases.

As some of you know, I'm sending out a 14-page report and a cover letter to Thomas Eng at the Seattle FBI next week. Included are 18 pictures and copies of certain documents. One of the pictures is a copy of the Bremerton Sun article from May 1972 that claimed a source inside the Seattle FBI told the reporter that the FBI had reason to believe Cooper was bald.

Fine. You've all seen that article before. It goes on to say that agents went to a few wig and toupee shops in Pierce and Kitsap counties, and questioned some people. One of my questions in the cover letter to Eng is WHY did the FBI do this? In other words, WHAT made them think Cooper was bald? As far as I know that article is the only reference to such a thing, but it's pretty detailed. Names at least one shop, and the name of at least one person who was questioned. If they invested the time and manpower to do this, I would like to know the reasoning behind that effort.

yep, but again this leaves the door open for theory, since the body was not recovered one could assume it was a jumper, I believe they said they seen the prison uniform as I recall? there was also a strange phone call to a lawyer's office ending with, do you know who I am? read the newspaper, some wild stories have come forward now that you have buzzed my brain, the Anglins were seen here in Florida golfing, a strange tall "woman" showed up at the Anglin's Mother's funeral which was false because the FBI was there, so I guess the stories are there, just nobody has come forward claiming they know what happened or where they went.....also, Clarence Carnes claims he knew about the escape and received a postcard from them, simply stating "Gone Fishin"

just found this interesting tidbit....According to a 2011 program on the National Geographic Channel, investigators had found footprints leading away from the raft on Angel Island, and had also identified a Blue Chevy car stolen that night, contrary to the FBI report. Hmmmm

In reply to:
I agree with the idea that the FBI is probably holding back one or two (at least) key pieces of information about the hijacking. Obvious reason is to weed out potential confessors and/or suspects. This is standard procedure in major cases.

As some of you know, I'm sending out a 14-page report and a cover letter to Thomas Eng at the Seattle FBI next week. Included are 18 pictures and copies of certain documents. One of the pictures is a copy of the Bremerton Sun article from May 1972 that claimed a source inside the Seattle FBI told the reporter that the FBI had reason to believe Cooper was bald.

Fine. You've all seen that article before. It goes on to say that agents went to a few wig and toupee shops in Pierce and Kitsap counties, and questioned some people. One of my questions in the cover letter to Eng is WHY did the FBI do this? In other words, WHAT made them think Cooper was bald? As far as I know that article is the only reference to such a thing, but it's pretty detailed. Names at least one shop, and the name of at least one person who was questioned. If they invested the time and manpower to do this, I would like to know the reasoning behind that effort.

Another question would be why Pierce and Kitsap Counties? Pierce County is just south of Seattle and Kitsap is the Bremerton area across Puget Sound to the west from Seattle.

Interestingly, MeyerLouie posted recently that he picked up Bruce Smith in Eatonville, which is in Pierce County, on his way down to the festivies in Ariel in November.
