  5. Classic Aircraft Review : Let L-200D Morava by PWDT&NHAdrian Lots of time you wander around an airfield or museum and you see an aircraft... It sorta looks familiar, but at the same time it doesn't look like anything you know about all the certain types of aircraft, it is an oddity and In most cases it is usually an Eastern-Bloc or Russian in design. The Ruskies had looked at a western aircraft design, took the basics and then built it into their own design paradigm. So the design looks the same but in reality it is a copy of the real thing. Some Eastern-Bloc designers take an
  6. I believe that users should talk to the very available developers before shouting to the masses... I am very sure they will address your concerns, sometimes it is not the product that is the problem...
  7. NEWS! - Aircraft Release : Let L-200D Morava by Pannon Wings Design Team (PWDT) and NH Adrian Let, sounds Eastern Bloc doesn't it, and it is. Aircraft Industries, a.s., operating as LET, n.p., is a Czech (formerly Czechoslovak) civil aircraft manufacturer and its most successful design has been the L-410 Turbolet. Formally LET initially built gliders, but moved into full aircraft production with the LET Aero Ae-45, a teardrop shaped machine that sold very well. Now released is the LET L-200D Morava, which was produced between 1957 and 1963, it was a two-eng
  8. NEWS! - Scenery Release : KLGA – La Guardia International Airport 2023 by FeelThere La Gardia airport, New York is one of the most iconic airports in the world, it is also the most dangerous with it's complex approaches and short runways. But overall it was really an old airport, a 1940's 50s design in a modern world (it was originally opened in October 15, 1939), as the issues of totally outdated facilities required a change on a massive scale. So the New York Port Authority finally decided to do a full redesign of La Gardia for the 2020's, and that meant
  9. Scenery Review : LTFM - Airport Istanbul XP by Aerosoft To understand the importance and the major relocation of Istanbul's major airport from the former Atatürk Airport to the newer mega airport at Arnavutköy, is to look at not only the major updating of the facilities and the use of the more airport and runway space than with the overcrowded older ISL. As the new development is much more in a strategic positioning and a significant major change of the world's routing to capture a bigger, if not the biggest world passenger traveling market. East to West and vice-versa and to ultim

  11. Replay sorta works, the water can be dropped over the fires, but separately from the replay.... just make sure you have a load of water on board.
  12. Aircraft Review : PAC CT/4E Airtrainer Project by VSkyLabs Armed services around the world when revitalising their fleets, usually do what they call "Off the shelf" purchases, or take an aircraft already built, and then reconfigure the aircraft to suit their services requirements, it is supposedly to save you money, buy an already produced aircraft and not pay the development costs... but it never really seems to work out that way, and so they usually end up with a far more expensive result. Sometimes you also may need an even more specialist configuration to the aircr
  13. NEWS! - New Images : Aerobask shows off more images of the Falcon 8X Teasers are the name of the game lately, keep you wanting... but still waiting. It is Aerobask's turn this time with new images of their ongoing development of the Dassault Falcon 8X, the long range version of the successful Falcon 7X. The aircraft is being developed with Dassault Aviation as a partner (or authorised in partnership with Dassualt) to create the most authentic Private Jet yet. Details continue to filter out, but again there is no release date or even any idea of a release of
  14. Aircraft Preview : SSG shows new EJet modeling Rumors went around that SSG - Supercritical Simulations Group had abandoned their already announced EJet updates, plus the inclusion of an upcoming E2 195 as well... news to me and even to SSG themselves, so SSG have published some modellng renders to show that indeed they are still revising and updating their EJets. My guess it is in the confusion of last year 2020 the departure of AJ Borysewicz that had been one of the developers of the CRJ-700 with the core of SSG, but left the developer group to do the CRJ
  15. News! - Laminar Research : (another maybe) X-Plane12 Preview Another preview video has been released from Laminar Research, and it is noted as the X-Plane "Next Generation Fleet Preview One" (you mean there is more!). This video notes the release of an Airbus A330 as a new default aircraft for the X-plane Simulator, and it is noted as "Coming Soon"... it does not clarify however if the A330 is being in a X-Plane11 release or part of a new X-Plane release due (well about seven months ago) supposedly to be called X-Plane 12. Obviously it quickly sparked the i
