Re: Panel attachment to Fs9 conversion to FSX acft.

For DaveG: Yes I've tried that aircraft. It is the twin engine version developed from the original Fiat G-91. The problem I had was that the virtual panel could not always be selected and that became rather irritating. Thanks for the HU.

Re: Panel attachment to Fs9 conversion to FSX acft.

For Scorpius and DaveG: I could not understand why one is advised in three YouTube videos to change the FS9 sound file to an FSX sound file when converting an FS9 aircraft for use in FSX. It is also strange that in none of those films is one shown the FSX panel in place and operating in the converte...

Panel attachment to Fs9 conversion to FSX acft.

After watching a YouTube video on converting FS9 aircraft to enable use in FSX - essentially it involves removing the FS9 sound and panel files and replacing them with suitable native FSX sound and panel files. I had no trouble with replacing the sound file. The panel file has so far proved impossib...

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...
