The virtual Hobbs meter... from hell in my case.
I got a good laugh out of this, so I figured I'd share. You probably already know this, but if not, you can see how many hours you've put on each plane in your hangar in FSX by going into the following folder, and checking the state.cfg file for each aircraft:
C:\Documents and Settings\(your user name)\Application Data\Microsoft\FSX\SimObjects\
Every now and then I like to check these stats out, so, just for fun, here are my current top 5...
5th place: Iris F-14A, 30.15 hours
4th place: Alphasim F-5, 30.78 hours
3rd place: Alphasim SR-71, 37.43 hours (at least I know where 17 of them came from)
2nd place: Iris PC-9A, 41.20 hours
1st place (gee what a shocker): My L-39, at 307.66 hours!
Yes, that's about thirteen days sitting in my damned jet.
I really need to fly something else one of these days. The really scary part about that last number is that 99% of my flights in it last less than two minutes. Load, takeoff, test, quit.
