    Somewhat surprisingly, the current FS2004/FSX version of this Virtavia product works in P3D4!! A nice looking / flying model that is somewhat dated but a great value. These addon textures are a...

    A small point -

    The Navy Ensign (national flag) is flown from a halyard rigged to the top of the main mast at sea, not on a staff angled from aft the island. All USS warships do this.

    Humph - if he "should be a 2-star by now", he would already have been retired, like it or not. He would get two successive looks, one year apart, for promotion from Captain (O-6) to 1-star. If not...

    AI Carriers - post 1981

    I noticed that most if all the modern AI Carriers (CVA-59 and later) available do not have the forward "range light mast" forward of the island. The NIMITZ class was built with these, CVA-59 and...

    Glad you found this out.

    Interesting, because on real Navy aircraft, the hook is only raised by hydraulic pressure. It can free fall down once unlatched. However, it does need a hydraulic...
