    Never seen this before. It's been out for about 30 minutes now. When it happened, it was odd to see all sims slowly lower followed by the draw bridges. Would suck if it was during your type ride.

    I guess. Getting hit good now. It's only the old Eagle part that lost power. Power transformer on the power company's side blew.

    I remember in 2003 some guy hit a transformer with a brush hog and the power was out to the entire academy for a few hours. Same thing happened with the sims.

    Remember we don't except sim ism's as excuses. Ask for electrical emergency checklist.
