One day, I'll tell you all about how I had to reset the complete software in a prototype Phantom, several times, whilst driving it back to Munich from Frankfurt... It was late 2001, a couple of years before the car hit the market...

Its happened before; :roll:
But while the simulated war games were a somewhat easy feat for the Raptor, something more mundane was able to cripple six aircraft on a 12 to 15 hours flight from Hawaii to Kadena Air Base in Okinawa, Japan. The U.S. Air Force's mighty Raptor was felled by the International Date Line (IDL).

When the group of Raptors crossed over the IDL, multiple computer systems crashed on the planes. Everything from fuel subsystems, to navigation and partial communications were completely taken offline. Numerous attempts were made to "reboot" the systems to no avail.

Luckily for the Raptors, there were no weather issues that day so visibility was not a problem. Also, the Raptors had their refueling tankers as guide dogs to "carry" them back to safety. "They needed help. Had they gotten separated from their tankers or had the weather been bad, they had no attitude reference. They had no communications or navigation," said Retired Air Force Major General Don Shepperd. "They would have turned around and probably could have found the Hawaiian Islands. But if the weather had been bad on approach, there could have been real trouble.”

No problem. You just stop at the side of the road, give it the 3-fingered salute, reboot and carry on. That's what we do with our PCs after all...

Cheers,
Mike.
Or, you could actually use a solid fully protected o/s which M$ has not touched and bodged :wink: ;-)
