Just to confirm the aircraft are operated by HeliOps for training foreign crews from their base at Portland. That's on the site of what was, over 20 years ago now, RNAS Portland but is now totally privately owned. So no UK military involvement as such.

Re: It has Happened!!

It was the name of a dog, it's still mentioned in any history of the raids where the full context is available. If you're learning history from gravestones you're doing it wrong. What it isn't is on public display so any ethnic minority member of the services can see it and draw the conclusion their...

Re: Hmmmmmmm.....

Thr RAF generally named its radars after colours, so Blue Silk and Geen Satin (doppler),Red Steer (tail warning), Orange Harvest (ESM Shackletons) Blue Diver ( ECM). It was inevitable that the concrete ballast in the Tornado nose was called Blue Circle. Nev Not just radars, British post-war develop...

Sea Fury

Hi All,

If you're struggling with cabin fever and don't already have it I've uploaded the old Flying Stations Sea Fury model on my blog. There's a P3Dv4 specific version which has 64 bit dll gauges.

Re: Blown away

Ben,
What I find vaguely amusing is that preview covers at least half the add-on airports I've either bought or want! Eg St Barts, Saba, and Lukla. Now how to convince them to include Kai Tak as an active airfield...

Watching some of the videos released by MS the buildings are definitely 3D. There's also some road traffic in evidence, and operating more realistically than in the past, although the density doesn't seem to have been turned up yet.
