RadarBox Map Zoom increments
« on: September 27, 2008, 10:07:37 AM »
Hi

When you use the mouse wheel or the plus and minus buttons to zoom in and out on a map, can anyone tell me if it is possible to alter the amount of the zoom increment. I want to make the zoom increments finer so that the amount you zoom in / out is less than the standard setting.

Many thanks

Jim

Hi Mr TSR2!

It isn't possible at the moment, but AirNav Development are listening, and an enhancement update to the software is due sometime soon!

BTW - welcome to the forum, Jim!

Thanks for the reply, I'll look forward to the software update.

It's nice to know someone out there recognises the Serial of a TSR-2 !

Regards

Jim

Now there's a question - is it just an urban myth that there is still a TSR-2 in existence - mothballed at Boscombe Down...........?

I believe it's tucked away in the corner of the hangar, just behind the Brabazon ...

There are 2, one at Duxford and one at Cosford :-)

Thanks for those Allocator - how recent are they? Is there still one at Boscombe as well?   There was one there in 1974ish.

I've seen both aircraft in the last 6 months.  I think that these are the only 2 in existence, but I'm sure somebody will put me right if I'm mistaken :-)

I found this on Google:

One of the 3 aircraft ended up at Shoeburyness and was used for assessing the damage from various ordnance on a 1960s airframe. A scandalous waste, but that was what they did. No one will admit to ordering the destruction of the jigs either, but someone did!

There are only two left in existance. The Jigs were almost certainly ordered to be destroyed by Dennis Healy, a decision that was to cost this country an awful lot of money. Not to mention the loss of one of the most technologically advanced aircraft in the world.

Healey claimed in the TSR2 video I have that he was not responsible for ordering the jig destruction. I suspect that was done without telling him so that he could claim this, and the order came from a slightly lower level having been agreed with the Americans as part of the Polaris deterrent supply quid pro quo. Maybe when the 50 year rule papers are revealed we'll finally know.

Actually there is some more information here:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TSR-2

you may have already seen it. The Recent Information section tells the real story of why it was cancelled. But not why the jigs were destroyed.

Destroying the jigs would make it that much more difficult for a subsequent administration to resurrect the project.

True, but since the later W177C nuke had the needed yield for it to be a viable TSR2 weapon it's clear that it could have become a viable weapon system. It's the usual thing for a government not to attempt to hobble a successor government, so this action was questionable at best.

If the real reasons ever come out, it will put to bed a very long-standing controversy!
