    That particular F-80 was used by Wright Field as a test aircraft for a variety of modification besides just the prone position for the pilot in your pic. At one time there was a set of upward firing .50 cals mounted in the nose. Not sure whatever happened to it (very likely a target drone as a lot of eary P-80s did), but it's on my list in an unusual paint scheme.

    A new entry has been added to Add-Ons Library, category FSX Military skins - General Description: I made an "oops" in the 1st Readme files for the F-80 paints that I've done so far that prevents them from showing up in the sim. Here is a new set of Readme files to correct that situation. Just use the new aircraft.cfg bit and they'll show up.

    Sorry, my bad. My system had issues with the gunfire effect and I ended up just taking all the Tacpack stuff out. I'll do some appropriate fixes. Thanks for letting me know.

    I haven't yet. I've only got good pics of F-80s from a couple of ANG units and I've already done the Colorado one. But I've got a lot of pics from the "Enchillada Air Force".

    I'm wanting to, just looking for some good pics of one that either isn't almost all bare metal or white/orange. One of the problems is that most Navy pictures from those days are in black and white and I have to guess at the colors.

    Thanks Walter. Such a beautiful airliner. Shame it didn't go into production. Here is one that had a couple of different names. Any will do!

    Can't decide if the prop arc is 4 or 5 bladed. Going by how the wheels are not fully retracted out of view, it might be the Breda Zappata Bz 308? Wow Mike, that Sablier link you provided above is a treasure trove of rare photos and info. Thanks!

    Thanks Henk, that one's a classic that there was no way I was not going to do. For some silly unknown reason, I saved a lot of what I used to do a series of F-80 paints last year. That stuff is very useful now. Strip n Stare, Panther Queen, Salty Dog, Lil Dottie and some very early P-80As are in the paint booth now.

    Looks like a Bede pusher to me. I put "Masschelein Mass-302" into Google and absolutely nothing came up. :dizzy:

    The paints that I've done have been using Rick's speculars as I felt the paints had a better appearance with his rather than the ones I did for them. Nice panel work Alain. I've did a few changes in that department myself using other gauges. Here's mine I used gauges from various sources on this. Mostly just setting it up for the way I like to fly.

    Hi Mike , Just a quick question . Thanks for a fantastic event and it is quite a challenge Harv and I were being a little naughty and discussion routes , wildcards etc and noticed Flying Bull went for the Canaries we both thought " nice move but missing Africa will mean needing to hit an extra commercial in South America " . Could be a good move , difficult to tell , but I do not see the extra Commercial hit , only see 10 hit . It`s not a complaint , just an observation and maybe an oversight or mis-understanding of the rules , but I definately ruled out tenerife because it`s not a required commercial and would need an extra south america leg to compensate the short cut . Please don`t take as a complaint but as an observation and a quick hop to SUMU and back should fullfill the requirement Once again a fantastic event and not competitive , just great to see so many friends again . Cheers Mike Happy Flying
