Fricking livid... MV-22 Osprey cockpit grinds to a halt.

Recommended Posts

Yes, I'm frickin besides myself...

 

I was using a spectacular 360 degree panoramic view quick-time I found on the Defencenews.com website to accurately model the Ospreys cockpit. I log-on tonight and cannot find it anywhere on the website anymore! :shout:

 

I fired off a correspondence with the website art director in hopes there is some external link available for it... but I'm not holding my breath.

 

Sorry had to vent... I just can't believe this thing vanished... it was a absolutely lovely resource.

 

bugger.

Thanks for the try but I've got images in a few reference mags similar to these.

 

This quicktime app was very nice... I could drag the screen around and look about the cockpit just like I was standing there. Better yet, I could zoom up on things and look at them in detail... I'm going to be hard pressed to come up with such detailed views as this was.

I guess there's no way that QT app was in your cache was there? Maybe you could have recovered it that way...

 

I feel your pain there Zur. I had a lovely F-5/F-20/T-38 book I was using as a reference...and now I can't find it...ANYWHERE.

 

It wasn't cheap...

Nope..no cache (first place I looked). Apparently I'm too anal retentive when it comes to cleaning my PC... cache gets dumped automatically when I close Windows.

Me being a "uniformed guy" will do nothing to help you over there. It's all ran by civilians. :biggrin:

czech this website out

http://www.archive.org/index.php

 

just insert the full hyperlink of the website you were looking at where it says "take me back" and it will take you to a list of days where that particular website was archived. For instance, you can look up what the home page of CA looked like back on May 7, 2007. ionno if that helps.

 

 

edit----> nevermind, I just tried it out and apparently defensenews.com is a blocked site. sorry

YAHOO!!!!

 

Well kiddies... Thanks to a tip from one of our intrepid community members (Y'all thank Hillbilly for me...) we are back on track with the Osprey's pit!

 

The solution was sitting right in front of me and Hillbilly dragged me like a horse to the water trough! He pointed out that it was still available via Google's cached pages... duh!

 

Anyways... I'm golden and very happy about it! :fans:

 

News: Disaster averted!

Well, could you at least talk one of your fly boys into buzzing the building?
