Cool Real Life Yak

I was at my hometown flight festival today (Louisville, Kentucky) and happened to wander upon a plane i instantly recognized! i was beyond giddy to inspect her and sit in the cockpit. i asked the pilot/engineer guy a bazillion questions (one of which was if he'd heard of DCS world, to which he said "huh"?)

one question i did ask about was whats up with the flaps. he said the only reason the flaps are there is to add drag, so when you come in to land you have 40% throttle to simulate a jet fighter on approach. interesting.

the pictures are from the back seat, taken on my new iPhone XS which happen to take super crisp pictures!

It's a nice plane. The flaps we have now is like a trap wire on a carrier almost im sure they will fix it soon.

The cockpit is a lot roomier than I thought it would be.

Nice pics! And please note the cockpit glass reflections, BTW. Looks to me ED got them about right and the whiners are just as wrong as they often are
