    E6-B flight computer
    From: Patrick McVey

    Seems like there was a discussion about the usefullness of E6-B flight 
    computers in relation to solving drift calculations on this list. Are those 
    articles archived and searchable? Or, can someone point me to a web resource? 
    An old friend of mine who's an engineer/surveyor, found an old Davis Mark 12 
    at a swap meet for 50 cents. He gave that to me along with a 1962 copy of 
    Dutton's and an E6B-type flight computer. The actual name is, "Fabulous MK-6B 
    Kane Dead Reckoning computer." I would like to know more about how it 
    operates. Way back, I thought I saw some info in a ground school textbook at 
    our local community college library. I doubt I'll use it but its a 
    non-electronic navigation tool.
    May be of interest to the group.
    Patrick
