That's pretty amazing. I probably spent a good 10 minutes looking at it.

It took a few shots of tequila, but eventually I was able to see the sailboat!

Flying airplanes is easy, you just need to PAY ATTENTION. Finding a good job on the other hand takes experience, practice, and some serious talent.

WOW. I found it to be strongly reminiscent of the Troxler effect!

Do any of you stare at one instrument without blinking for more than 5-10 seconds? If so, you should open your mouth and let a little drool spill out to complete the ensemble.

I often stare at a single instrument.
I think whoever designed the EFIS setup needs a high-five.

An even higher-five to whomever designed "Highway In The Sky"
Put the vector in the boxes and there really isnt a need to scan.



Good find North.

I stare at my targeting pod image, hardly blinking, for a good 30 seconds before a bomb impacts.
