    Cheques have not been phased out in the UK, not yet anyway, and you don't need a fat wallet to open a basic Paypal account. Just an active current bank account. On another note I find it inconceivable that 92% of the membership can't afford or are too tightfisted to contribute when a large majority probably run higher spec computers than I can afford. ( Many actually boast about it in their signatures). I'll probably upset a few but we Yorkies say what we mean and mean what we say. Off my soap box I'll get me coat:running: PS: $10 is less than a packet of cigarettes in the UK. Decent ones anyway:)

    We're up to 60% now. Maybe I touched a few raw nerves. :) Everything I said is relevant. No regrets. No prisoners. :biggrin-new:

    $10 to $15 is enough. If only 3/4 of the registered members pay $10 that equals $30000. Enough to keep the site going for another 2 years. Let's see how many are still blue at the end of the campaign then change the rules so only those who've donated can post and download. When times are hard time to get tough. Oh how I hate freeloaders. :rocket: Bet that kills the thread :running:

    Oh man Dave...The Nut Tree...you bring back WONDERFUL memories of that aviation bookstore in the early '80s . Really SUCKS that it was closed a number of years ago (I think). Kent

    A few years ago (2010), Area 51 "updated" the U-2S, ER-2 flight model, and in so doing, made it pretty much impossible to get to 80,000 feet. Wilycyote4 apparently merged the two FDEs to get whatever benefit the "update" gave us, as well as restoring the ability to get back up to 80K feet-- but it looks like he hasn't been on the forum since late 2012. Does anyone else have that modified flight model they would be willing to send me? Thanks, Kent

    I'll look around for any useful material. And yes, 188 is FSX native and can be found on avsim.

    Where I can find schematics with markings, panel lines and rivet locations for the Lockheed L188 Electra? Looking at doing some textures for the KBT model and need reference so I can build a paintkit from existing textures. Any help is appreciated

    Yep-- have had the Virtavia/AS B.2 and Flying Stations variants for a few years. Just wondered if JF was contemplating using the same technology on the B.2...doesn't sound like they will anytime soon. Kent

    And to pile on to the above post, the QW -146/RJ is GREAT...I bought it within the last month. And to comment on the post below, I forgot about Rick Piper's HS-748...that paired with a good RR Dart sound effect will tear your eardrums out until the arrival of the F27! Kent

    I don't know if propliners are your thing, but...I'm guessing that once JF gets off the dime and releases their F27, that's going to be AWESOME. It looks wonderful in screenshots. No question-- I'll be buying it. Kent

    Okay, took the plunge-- fantastic.... Now hoping for a B.2 and/or B/RB-57A! (Again, a EB/B-57B/C/E would be even better, but it ain't British...so I don't see it happening). I just wish the PR.9 had more countries that used it-- for increased repaints....Still, I think you guys should release the paintkit...a Chilean, more RAF, and a few fictitious schemes would be cool. Again...loving the Cranberry.... Kent

    If I purchase the Canberra today, has SP2 been integrated into the download version? Thanks, Kent

    Thanks RAS...if it works, I'd be a definite buyer-- gorgeous model. BTW...maybe a Cranberry bomber variant in the future (tip tanks, please!)? Still chomping at the bit for the F27, too... Kent

    Wow-- despite looking (briefly) last night on their support page, I totally missed that piece of info about the pink. That settles that-- Let's hope the "soon to be released" F27 doesn't exhibit that same, eh...."feature"-- that would be....ah...."less than optimum", to put it kindly. Thanks again for the heads up. Kent

    The only downer I have found with the demo version of the JF PR9 is that on my rig, it seems to usually take a second or two for the VC textures to reload after viewing the craft from the outside. I am a constant "toggler" (switching from inside to outside spot view) when flying, so I find the 1-2 secs of "Pepto-Bismol" pink on the instrument panel (probably the 3DMax colors it was modeled in) before it will refresh, very annoying-- even with the latest NVidia driver installed it does it... I'm going to do some research and see if there is anything I can do to fix it from a rig-perspective before I take the plunge for this very gorgeous airplane. Kent

    Ed, Yup, I agree. I have to admit that at this point however, I would settle for an EE Canberra bomber version with tip tanks, and do some of the B/RB/EB-57A repaints...(lots of ANG units flew them in the late 1950s, early 1960s). Looking at the PR9, there seems to be some commonality-- but I suspect that's just visual. Another EE Cranberry would be a total rebuild for JF, I'm afraid. Kent
