    Final Hijack.. I've never been able to find the Rio livery for Milton's Dash 7. Last time I thought about doing it myself, I couldn't find many pics of it to go by. Maybe one of these days if I can find the image and there isn't much on my plate. Right now with building a new FS9 install and getting ready to give FSX SE a whirl, plus the other couple dozen paints in various stages, I don't see me starting anything new for a few months. In the pic that I posted, the yellow looks pretty faded out from what I remember of them.

    Have to admit, it was pretty funny, once we knew nobody got hurt, of course... :untroubled:

    Never been in a Aero Commander, but I agree with flying in a Dash 7. The old defunct Rio Airways flew them between Dallas and Texarkana in the early to mid 80s. We always joked about them being "flying road culverts" or "flying bananas" because of their distinctive yellow paint scheme, but they did ride nice. Okay, back to Tigercats...

    I wasn't sure if it had appeared in the distant past (a search did not pull it up). How about a Salon baby?

    Zswobbie, No lines have been drawn. I've got nothing against P3d and I was looking hard at it's features, requirements and pricing. But Steam just struck me as the better deal for my purposes. And I'd been told that to get the Student Edition of P3d, you had to tell 'em you're a student. I'm not trying to learn to be a real life pilot, just having fun is more my speed. And to be honest, I'd been fairly bored with FS9 for a while. It's a great sim and has been reliable as heck for me (not so much with Win 8.1). But's time to move on. I'm still keeping my 1950s and Golden Wings installs though. (At least until I can backdate FSX with scenery and AI traffic) I'd never knock anyone's choices for a Flight Sim. I've been running FS9 since it came out and it's way past time for a...

    Like everything else in life, you pay your money and you take your chances. I've never asked for a refund on payware, but I have taken payware aircraft that didn't live up to expectations and converted them to AI usage. (A certain set of payware FS9 Constellations comes to mind here).

    I don't mind the $25 dollars so much. I've spent much more on single addon purchases for FS. $5 would be a steal, but I've got the urge to go to the "Dark Side" now that I have a comp that should run it and have no idea when the next sale would be. Besides, we're getting close to the end of our latest online flight, and I'm hoping to be in X for the start of the next one (Low & Slow over Western Europe) I had been updating the old JE Narcizco Super Cub for 9, but now I've been working on it with an eye to FSX. New personalized paint, panel and the 200hp FDE in case I have to do some sudden rock climbing in the hills somewhere. Ever since CFS 1, I've been a "tinkerer" in flight sim mods so naturally I'm going to want to continue with that in FSX. I don't buy much payware, but...

    The Wozza Gee Bee is the same in FS Panel Studio being unable to do much with the vc. I've been flying it around the world in Golden Wings and adapted the "otto" out of Milton's Spartan to the 2d panel. Another thought would be to just add one as a pop up which could still be accessed while in the vc. More than one way to skin a cat.... W

    Has anyone did a FSX native conversion of the AH Seafire? That's another must have for me. I'm going to get a jump on things and do some searches for FSX add ons. Milton's stuff is another must have.

    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
