Re: f9f AH Panther mods

For Airspeed and Dave G: Thanks to both of you for the help with the F9F-2 Panther. The aircraft that I have on my FSX system is the recently released A F Scrub version of the freeware AH Panther. I think that aircraft has a most attractive shape and it is a great pity that the fuselage drop tanks c...

f9f AH Panther mods

I would like to get rid of the drop tanks on this aircraft because evidently those Panthers used in Korea specialised in ground attack and in that role never carried drop tanks. The F9F Panthers used for photo recce aircraft were unarmed but seemingly did use drop tanks. The freeware models are base...

Re: BRITISH AIRWAYS TO PAINT AIRCRAFT WITH MUCH-LOVED DESIGN FROM AIRLINE'S HISTORY

"Those were the days my friends, we thought they'd never end!" Happy times waiting at Heathrow to board the Vanguard/Trident shuttle via the bus. (1964-1979). Funny thing, in 2015 I still boarded a bus at Terminal 5 to board an aircraft to the USA!! I was always under the impression that T5 was desi...

Re: At Last.....!!!

I have used a Scan computer for flightsim (FSX) for over two years. I've been very pleased with the performance and customer support given by that company.

Highly recommended.

If enough people got together one might see enough Spitfires to get a whole Wing (45 aircraft) to fly down the Mall, London, UK. Doesn't matter to me that they could be made of wood but it might be advisable to decre...

Re: Happy New Year

Midnight and that wonderful sound of our church bells ringing! Do other countries 'ring in' the New Year?

We have real bell ringers here - no electronic recordings.

Wishing all a Happy, safe and reasonably Prosperous New Year!
