Peter Wilding was telling me the majority at FSworld are quite young, like under 20, but I know other places like Avsim seem to attract the over 40 crowd.

Yeah, flight simming has always attracted an older age group for some reason, which is why it generally has a nicer atmosphere - though you still see some bitter arguments rage at Avsim and, with these [older] men that should know better 'throwing their toys out of the pram' .. FSW is without doubt the youngest of the FS forums, which is why it is the only place the 'cloud wars' rumbles on. I like it though, as there is a lot of enthusiasm there, and you don't tend to get massive threads on really tedius subjects, that I couldn't give a toss about.

Not wishing to start a 'water wars' but here is a couple of nice shots showing some FEX water, during theme testing, somewhere off of Queensland.

Great looking little helo Omzig - will have to give it a you have a link?...
