Animation = things (in this case aircraft) moving  :-)

"going round in the hold" was the bit I didn't understand :)

Maybe this pilot's view flying over Sydney Harbour and approaching Sydney airport will help:

Not really - the only aircraft I could see in the video appeared to be hovering ...

Watch it for 5 minutes - you aren't looking for an aircraft, you are IN the aircraft looking through the window and watching the scenery go by as if you are the pilot :)

Yes, I'd managed to work out for myself that "pilot's view" meant inside looking out :-)

That's not what I want - the expression "going round in the hold" will be readily understood by anyone who lives near a busy terminal area (I'll excuse Pat under the circumstances). 

That's what I'd like to see a 3D animation of.

Dave, I've only just started beta testing, but when/if I see an aircraft in the hold at Inverness I'll see what I can grab.

In the meantime, I grabbed a quick image of an aircraft on departure from Aberdeen.

OK, thanks.

Don't rate the new Ryanair colour scheme, by the way  :-)

Yes, I guess it will be a challenge to get all colour schemes setup.  Maybe open this up for end-user development?

Meanwhile we had a beautiful "ANRB 3D" sunset here for the aircraft landing at Sydney last night :)

Will it run ok on low spec laptops? ie: P1.6Ghz + 512MbRAM ?

I think it's very unlikely to run well on low-spec machines - with all the 3D rendering and Google-Earthing going on, plus all the standard RadarBox processing, it's certainly pushing my single-core processor to the max! Though it is improving with fine tuning from the development team.

Airnav - can you confirm what the PC requirement specs are to run the 3D ?
Everything about Airnav is fantastic. Airnav can do no wrong. Airnav is perfect. Airnav is divine.

Another example of what the 3D version can do - full screen view, split between 2D and 3D, 22 inch monitor:



Single real screenshot - pretty cool, I reckon!

Ah well, looks like I need a new laptop!

I wasn't going to bother, but I have a few programs now that won't run properly on my old machine.

And I must admit, RB3D certainly looks so cool!  :)
