It's a bit more risky if you have a gas hob.

At first I thought it was this old bird, the Douglas C-124 Globemaster II -- "Old Shakey":

The weird thing is, in the real world those old planes will be gone in a few years. Gone entirely. But in the Internet, they will survive to gether with myriads of board comments, flame wars and a lot of absolute useless stuff. I mean, we can fly in FG also planes, nobody has seen in reality anymore in decades.

Now for something completely different (kind of keeping a promise to Buckaroo)

Some of you may have heard about Lean, Kaizen, continuous improvements, 3S, 5S or things like that.

If you are like me when I first heard of those, you would have thought of consultants from some business school who would meeting bosses in suits and workers at the factory floor in work clothes to blend in, and of course a lot of extra chores and do:s and don't:s, but still some good ideas to be used.

I once worked at a company which started to adopt some of these things and it turned out great, even though management, so to speak, did not go all in and used the full tool box. The biggest difference for me was 5S (in essence sort, straighten, shine, standardize and sustain). Things got more efficient, cleaner, organized, less messy and you stopped expecting that the tool you needed for the task would be the tool missing (though of course other tools would be abundant :roll: ). In short, things definitively was not better before.

Someone who have gone all in and improved and adapted the methodology is Paul Akers of FastCap. He is happy enough about it that he really want to share the concept he call 2 Second Lean which aims at having each person on his company strive for making a two second improvement in their processes every day. On the FastCap web site you can find this page with a huge amount of interesting, educational and inspiring videos. Below are two that might be interesting as an introduction.





Start your day by "scratching an itch". Oh, and why stop at work. I bet all of you have things nagging you at home that can be improved, 2 seconds a time. :wink:

Gary Wing explaining the use of the magnetic compass and all the confusing errors of the wet magnetic compass. It is amazing how well he describes it in 5 minutes when some other videos three or four times longer will only confuse me:



A good explanation for why some of those errors occur can be found here: Direct Reading Compass Errors by a K.Haroon

Two good mnemonics:

Accelerate
North
Decelerate
South

Undershoot
North
Overshoot
South

You need to put just the video ID between the "youtube" tags:
Code: Select all
[youtube]bnBr3enzW1I[/youtube]

which produces the following result:

Thanks. The example given in the forum software is inaccurate. It includes everything before what you showed.

Now, what on earth is that pilot doing? It doesn't look 100% safe. Looks worse than it is?

Would that be because there simply isn't any more space for a compass? Because other than that I couldn't think of any other reason why you need go to the trouble of making a fiolding mirror housing on the cockpit dash, aligning the mirrors, and flipping the characters around for the mirror
