Good to know. I have definitely seen the "blow up if you touch before the first wire effect". Yes, I have!

I have looked in the manual and tried a few searches and I couldn't find an answer to this .. Is it possible to do a selective drop of external tanks in the A-4? If so how?

Yes, the procedure is:

Normal Release

1. Function selector switch ...... BOMBS & GM ARM

2. STATION select switches (as desired) .... READY

3. MASTER armament switch ..... ON

4. Bomb release button ....... .. DEPRESS

It can be tricky, but if you can get the pattern as accurate as possible, it really helps with the landing. APC helps a lot if you're not using it, and a 75mil sight depression gives you a good aiming reference all the way around - top of the 50mil circle on upwind, dead centre horizon on downwind, put the caret on the crotch in the groove and walk it to the centreline abeam the IFLOLS for a 3 wire.

Thanks for the tips ... I didnt want to use APC, as its use is a bit counterintuitive, but will try the sight depression tip .. I'm slowly improving, but still needs more practice



Thanks
