    XB-19. The pre-war markings made it a little easier, but the properties of the pic, more so..... Sorry, guess that was cheating of sorts. I just happened to see it when my mouse moved over the picture. But, in all honesty, was going to go through pre-WWII bomber types. Link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Douglas_XB-19

    Gray Eagle, thanks for sharing. I see both Helldiver's point about a more extreme roll, but PRB's as well about an apparently somewhat calm looking surface but much bigger roll translated on the deck. That must be a pucker factor moment to one moment see the intended landing space appear as usual, only to be quickly marginalized or put into a much higher angle. My hat's off to all Navy and Marine aviators that fly that regularly. My question is does a rolling deck such as that require quite a bit more brake usage, stopping a rolling, wheeled, multi-ton machine from going off the deck? I mean land based field isn't moving so braking is predictable. I suspect mush tougher in that environment and throw in darkness, NVG's and again, fantastic job of not loosing few, if any, off the deck.

    I think the problem is many of these conversations are done privately and go unresolved and therefore the jilted parties air here. There's definitely a history which is a shame. Best of luck Joanvalley.

    Thanks Storm. This thread really helped spark my memories as a child, seeing these magnificent smoking beasts regularly breaking sonic barriers and rattling many dishes in good ol sunny Zweibrucken and Holloman AFB. Albeit, they were RF-4s in sunny Zweibrucken. I remember the coolest overflight was during a REFORGER exercise in 1976, going to school in a very comfy German bus, halted for a REDFOR column to cross a local intersection and seeing these 2 smoking trails in the sky, just above tree top level, conducting a mock strafing run/weapons drop on the column. Then a second later, the incredibly loud afterburners and a boom as the Phantoms broke contact. It was great growing up around all that heavy metal. Apologies for the OT remarks, but I'm so looking forward to this release,...

    Wow! I don't remember seeing the Luftwaffe Phantoms posted. Great looking pics! Externally, how different is the F-4F versus the F-4E? I know they were not equipped to fire the AIM7 and later received upgrades to fire the AIM120. Anyway, I really am looking forward to this release and wish they would consider an RF-4C variant too......great plane from a great development team.

    Smudge or anyone have the patch David is referring too? The store no longer sells it so there's no update available. When I look on the Iris website, no link there either, just their latest release. Apologies for being sort of off topic, but looking for the final piece as promised long ago. I am curious as to the difference between it and the new release.

    David, Can you provide a link to that upgrade. Myself and few others seem to have missed that upgrade link and the news of it. Also, what of the C-27 update? Will it be a free update to those that purchased the original? Here is a link to the one we're referencing: http://www.flightsim.com/vbfs/content.php?721-F22-Raptor-By-Iris-Flight-Simulation-Software I posted the link because my purchased product link is no longer available from the The Flightsimstore, so therefore not able to get the latest version. Thanks for the reply.

    David, since you've posted regarding making a PC24 and maybe missed this posting, any chance we misunderstood your former intent on releasing an update to the original owners of these 2 birds? Just looking for clarification from Iris. I believe in always giving a second chance and your new PC21 looks promising, but once bitten, twice shy... Thanks in advance

    I'm not surprised it isn't a free update to the original, which I own. The original was never fixed completely and promised to be an update, which morphed into a version 2 paid release. They made a similar promise with their C-27 and that's looking doubtful too. It's amazing how far this companies fallen from their great T-6B release that enamored me with them years ago. I once believed and therefore supported by purchasing their products. Trends like this make me doubtful they'll ever fully support any of their releases completely.
