This will not work. There is some kind of issue such as no local storage in your browser or JavaScript being disabled.

Explanation

This is meant to accommodate the iPads. If you are on a PC, you are better off saving the html file or opening it directly from the e-mail.

Make sure that you bookmark or add this page to your homescreen so that you can get to it while you are offline. Instructions on adding this to your homescreen are at the bottom of the page.

More explanation if you are interested: When you open the html flight plan from e-mail on the iPad, it opens in a preview mode. Some things work, but things such as the links do not. If you open the flight plan directly in Safari and accidentally close it, you are out of luck. This page is meant as a way to open the flight plan directly in safari so that it is full featured, but also to allow recovery. When a flight plan is opened, it saves itself into the storage section in this browser. If you are into such things, the technology behind this is html 5 local storage. This page will allow you to open previously viewed flight plans from the browsers storage, even if you are offline. The point is to be able to recover a flight plan if you accidentally close it.

Troubleshooting

This will only work if the sites match. For example: If you went to http://johnfbell.com/WebForm1.aspx to translate the flight plan and then you went to https://www.johnfbell.com/recallflightplans.html for this page, it would not work. The domains need to match. Thus, make sure that you use and bookmark:

https://www.johnfbell.com/WebForm1.aspx to translate

https://www.johnfbell.com/recallflightplans.html for this page.

When a flight plan is opened it saves itself to the current spot and then moves the previous two flight plans to the previous spots. The buttons reflect those slots, but are only updated when this page loads or you manually update the list. Note that this is not meant as a way to archive old flight plans, but as a way to recover the current flight plan while offline. I added the previous two flight plans out of precaution.

The following button will refresh the buttons to align with the value saved in the browser cache:
