    Boy do I feel fortunate. Having gotten several back seat rides in Phantoms and Skyhawks, back in the 70s, I was shocked when I read the prices for a 40 minute ride: $12,500 for the Phantom, and $8000 for the Skyhawk; both aircraft are with the Collings Foundation. Have to to say the experience of a ride in those jets was fantastic, but unless I was a lottery winner, there's no way I'd shell out that amount of cash for a 40 minute ride. Nope. NC

    I have been trying to get in touch with John Stinstrom. I have emailed him, but no response. Anyone know if he is still active in the flight sim community? Thanks, NC :encouragement:

    I'm thinking that the thread's title is "Carenado King Air 350 released". I can't understand the connection of its purpose which is about the release of a product with what some of us believe about another product. Also I can't understand what is wrong with a developer who is choosing to take some more time and spend more development funds, against his income prospects, just to please those of us which want more perfection. Finally I can't understand how can we be so rude when we receive a nice and polite response provided only for helping us, and we insist on criticizing. I hope that this thread created for announcing a new product, won't be compromised and locked because some of us choose to make it a battleground.

    Is Vertigo Studios still in business? And if so, are they still working on the Greyhound? After the release of Virtavia's Hawkeye, I was wondering..... NC

    I downloaded/installed the Base Colors sound files. I set the time for Evening Colors; was on the ramp & did not hear the sounds. Flew onto the Forrestal deck & reset time again. I could faintly hear the sound, but barely. Figured I would fly over to the terminal, which I did. Reset the time, and heard nothing. Am I doing something wrong? Where should I be situated on the base to hear the sounds? Also, I noticed a possible scenery error? This black building on the ramp, next to a hangar? NC

    Hey Rich, So much has changed with the Navy since I retired in '97 (no further comment :censored:), but vehicles are supposed to stop, and anyone walking must stop as well, and face the direction of the flagpole on base (and salute, if in uniform). I used to love hearing Taps played, when aboard ship; Reveille too:encouragement:. I have a ship's clock at my home (no surprise, eh?). I forget to wind it all too often, but my wife isn't a fan of it because it wakes her at night with the sound of ships bells. Absolute fantastic work done on Alameda, Rich. Never been there, unfortunately. Was on Moffett once, and at North Island for one weekend (on det to the Kitty). But almost all of my time was on the East Coast, until my last squadron at Whidbey. NC

    Richard, I honestly have not kept up with the progress of your project, as I've had too many other real-life stuff happening lately. But your detail work is truly amazing! I hope someday to see NAS Cecil Field recreated to that level. The problem is, except for a few photos I've been able to collect from the internet over the years, I've not been able to locate much on the history of Cecil. What really surprised me is that the Naval Aviation Museum has almost no information about the base. NC
