    Fornebu was actually of very little strategic importance during the war. It was too far from the war theaters. But it was important for the german administration of Norway. As a result the only Oslo-action I can think of after the initial invasion in 1940, is the Mosquito raid on the Gestapo headquarters in 1942. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oslo_Mosquito_raid There is a couple of sites with a lot of information of the units/aircraft stationed at Fornebu 1940-1945: http://www.luftwaffe.no/ F.ex. check "Luftwaffe in Norway by year".

    Good morning, I wanted to pass along to you that I in the process (and have been, on-and-off for some months) of constructing an adequate representation of The Clyde. So far, I completed Gourock, and am working eastward along the Clyde toward Greenock and the Port / City of Glasgow. (This is part of the Heinkels! and GSL scenery overhaul) I am not representing this as being one hundred percent accurate, but CrisGer provided me last night with some wonderful pictures of the area, including known AA battery positions. With these, I will make sure that the area is heavily developed...and therefore a viable target. The prior representation I had of the area was severely lacking. I cannot post pictures just yet because I will be out of town from mid-day today until late Monday...

    A new entry has been added to Add-Ons Library, category CFS 2 Skins - German Description: Rami's 20th FG campaign inspired me to find out who the Axis JGs were that were encountering the 20th on their missions. I saw that JG51 fought against them many times, so I found an interesting plane from that JG and did a quick hack-n-slash skin for the PR BF109G6R6 to represent the mount of Hptm. Karl Rammelt, Kommandeur of JG51. I also did a skin for PR 109 drop tank. To check it out, rate it or add comments, visit BF109G6R6 Karl Rammelt.zip The comments you make there will appear in the posts below.

    WOW!! And the Norwegian 310 as well. Thanks ! In Norway this aircraft was known as the "Klippfish" airplane (bacalao), because it was paid for with money from export of Norwegian bacalao to Italy. We baught 4 aircraft in 1938, but they had little impact during the german invasion. One aircraft managed to escape during the occupation of Sola airbase, but had to be left on a lake short after. It was raised in 1981 and is currently under reconstruction. In 1939 Norway actually baught the lincense to build 10 310's. The first 5 was started at Kjeller in 1940, the airbase where the heavy F16 maintenance (and my work) is today. The rest is of course history. Ther's no traces of these examples. Morton

    Heide, Please tell Al that he is in my thoughts and prayers. My father died from COPD, (though he only smoked a pipe briefly in college) and he once described how laborous every breath was. His words were "it's like trying to breathe through a straw." I can imagine that's similar to what Al is going through right now...every breath is a struggle.

    Rami replied to a thread About Talon in CFS2 General Discussion
    Heide, Thanks for letting us know, and I hope Al feels better. It's part of my job to make sure that the legacy and lessons get passed on to my students...but I am now teaching a generation of students who, by 2015-2016, will have been born right around the attack, and have no concept of life before then. It's tough to paint a picture of that reality if you've never known it. When I tell the students where I was and what I was doing when the Challenger blew up, or the tanks in Tiananmen Square, the Berlin Wall being torn down, and the breakup of the Soviet Union, they look at me like I have four heads. (In reality, I only have three...lol :wiggle:)

    Highpockets, That's a good question. I sleep well, as a matter of fact, but I can understand the mystery. Let me unravel it for you. I like working on multiple CFS2 projects (typically four to six) simultaneously. This is not to show off or anything, but it's because I tend to get bored easily if I work on something for too long. I have dealt with being ADHD all of my life, and instead of letting it run me, I have learned when to manage it and when to set it free. It actually helps me as a teacher, because I like doing multiple activities and different types of activities during a class period, and consequently my classes are active, lively, and often exciting for my students. In CFS2, it can both be an asset and a detriment, especially if I get a bad case of "ooohhh...something...

    Hey Mort, I ran across a major issue with the Heinkels campaign for the Norwegian missions, and in the process of fixing them, I did a little GSL work and have some questions for you. First, the problem - Starting with mission 10, the Heinkels campaign had you transferring to Herdla airfield, which is a small island that the Luftwaffe built an airfield on. This airfield was always problematic for the campaign, because runway tolerances were so tight; short takeoffs and on-the threshold landings that would make your AI crash into the sea. Something about that always bothered me, so in doing research, I found out that elements of KG 26 transferred to Stavanger-Sola, not Herdla, after departing Trondheim-Vaernes and/or Aalborg, Denmark. Herdla was actually used by ...

    Mick. I THINK I approved the right ones and deleted the correct flawed skins. I put "v3" in the file name to differentiate them. Please check me by making sure that I did what you requested of me. :mixed-smiley-010:

  1. Airfiles are not my deptartment I guess. Sorry. If you cant find one from another FW, I usually ask Bearcat241 for assistance. He's an expert.

    cheers

    I actually converted the plane, since i started doing that... but can you make an airfile based after the fw190D?

    Dear Mr.Morton ,
    I admire greatly all the excellent panels and aircraft conversions you provide for our hobby . You constantly exceed all expectations with the quality of your work !!! However on your Skydive site neither downloads for the Mosquito BIV or Mosquito BVI appear to work !!! Could this just be my computer or could a link be broken ? One last question,if I may . You make many panels but I always wondered why you never made panels for some of the more iconic American Aircraft like the B-17 or the B-25 and the B-26 . Thanks again for all your good work . Regards and Best Wishes 1150(Michael Lythgoe)
  4. Morton,

    I was visiting your skydrive and wanted to ask if any of your CFS2 aircraft would also work in FS2004.

    I love flying them in CFS2, but wanted to try them in FS2004 also.

    Thanks,

    T.
