    First flight of the mystery was shortly after WW1. A (probably one-off) civil conversion of a type mostly used by the military.

    Yikes! No flames please. Yeah Edd is right... in my younger days I would say stuff because I could do it and just thought "Hey I can do that" and I could and can, but I always made the mistake of estimating time. I'm old now so that is driven out of my system. Mainly because when you contract to say Bungie or some one you get your butt sued off for not completing things on time, at the very minimum a $5000.00 per week penalty for every week you are late on delivery..so you just get it done! I'm just looking for a place to settle in and just enjoy the rest of my short life that is in front of me and do something fun instead of being driven to get rich and make as much as possible.I have done that...its not all that its cracked up to be. Good family, friends, health and conscience...

    Haguenau in France, 15 miles north of Strasbourg and close to the German border. Originally an airfield used by the French army, seized by the Germans in 1940 and developed into a night fighter airfield until late 1944. Although ideally placed for NF operation's, it was heavily attacked 3 time's by the allies, 2 daylight raids by the USAAF 8TH, and a particularly devastating lowlevel attack by P47 Thunderbolts in the spring of 44 This is a rather basic airfield, as i didnt have much to go on, just hangers and a few vehicles, figured i'd let you guys play with it. A suprisingly short runway at 2700ft, which i double check'd , i struggle to take of with a fully fuelled-up Me 110, but it work'd for them :-) There is a traffic file included using Groundcrew's FS9 BF-110 G4----

    A family friend, who passed away a number of years ago now, named Al Dexter, was a pilot in the 566th BS, 389th BG based at Hethel (the 389th, as well as the 445th and 453rd which Stewart was part of, formed the 2nd Air Division). He was the pilot of the first crew that flew the B-24J "Pugnacious Princess Pat" (44-10579), from July 11, 1944 to November 2, 1944, completing 35 missions. On my shelves I have a copy of a certificate he was given upon the completion of his 35th mission that inducted him into the "Lucky Bastard Club" and which allowed him to go home - I thought some of you might get a kick out of it! I've seen other versions of this certificate around the web. On the return side, I have a listing of each of his 35 missions with dates for each mission and locations of the...

    After the issues above I am back on track with the 1982 shipping... Today I tested the first version of the San Carlos Bay landing... Dave's Intrepid and Fearless joined by a bunch of Round Table class LSTs The SS Canberra entering San Carlos Bay - this is still not the final version - this will be the civil version, but it is used as placeholder, while I finish the war time version with added heli decks

    Hey peeps :) So I made it home for a month of holidays from France, I'm working on a new title for Ubiesoft and got the contract done early so I'm home to drink it up and throw it up...lol Find a new girl friend and just hang out. So I'm looking at my old fsx, I don't have steam version just the Platinum acceleration set. It bleeds virtual memory like a bottomless bucket so I should move to steam version. I have 3dv4.4 as well. So I was looking around for new scenery and mesh that might be affordable? I spend a ton on my new car, a little cash strapped atm. Any suggestions?

    As Squadron Commander of the 703rd BS, 445th BG (as he was already assigned in the States), and later the Operations Officer with the 453rd BG, Jimmy Stewart never had an assigned B-24 and flew missions on a number of different Liberators, almost always in the co-pilot's position with whichever crew/crew's plane he flew with. As Squadron Commander of the 703rd BS/445th BG, Stewart flew missions on the B-24H "Lady Shamrock" (42-52348), B-24H "Nine Yanks and a Jerk" (41-29118), B-24H "Tenovus" (41-29132), B-24H "Gremlin's Roost" (42-7512), B-24H "Dixie Flyer" (42-95247), and a couple missions on lead pathfinder B-24's with the H2X (names/identities I'm not aware of). As Operations Officer of the 453rd BG, Stewart flew at least one of his missions on the B-24H "Heavenly Body" (41-29210),...

    never indented to stoke the coals here - just voiced my opinion and heartfelt love for this sim. If Tommy can deliver all the best - charging for it well his time our decision whether to buy. Would it be an option Tom to ask for CFS4 source code and the work there since it is 15 yrs old and well what use is it to MS now. If it is a good as the folks who worked on it said it was maybe the best place to start since it is said to have nealry allthe bugs worked out and the features we loved in CFS2, and the best of CFS3. Seriously, if MS will listen to you IMHO best route forward - build on what MS did and make it 2020. Again I never intended to make the embers into flames:redfire:

    mornin ya'all. Just stumbled upon this thread, its interesting, given the fact I have the beginnings of this project on hd now! I beta test for Thomas and his company Cr1 I also beta for Blizzard, Ubi Soft, Sony and others. I had help getting this opportunity and its not as fun as you would think.... Reason he makes announcements like this is because of his passion, I have never seen someone so passionate about a g-dam game in my life, and he gets batted around and abused and told he is irrelevant and on and on. I will tell you why he sometimes dosn't deliver. I have known him from his birth.His father was my best friend, even though he was a Canuck, dam good pilot(flew CF104's) and a damn good man! God bless. Im 70 + years old and know the kid well. Thomas holds 4 masters...

    I don't think anybody is really being jerked around. We've all seen some people show up out of nowhere with big plans and are never show any evidence that anything is happening, though I don't recall any of it being from this guy. Makes no difference to me, I've got my own projects that I am happy with. If something does come of this I'll be glad to see it, and I'm glad he's taking input from the community at an early stage. If nothing happens - no loss.
