    This is just one of the reasons to keep FS9 installed. I have a standard version of FS9, Golden Wings and Silver Wings installed. They all run very smooth. Over the years I have been able to improve the looks (mainly with freeware!), that there are some areas which I think look better in my FS9 installs than they do in my reasonably modified FSX.

    The fact FS9 is less complicated makes me fly FS9 currently far more than FSX.

    It is really nice to see this one will also have his upgrade for FS9 as it absolutely belongs in Silver Wings.

    As far as I know, Bernie uses FSX, but models to FS9 standards in FSDS, so porting it over will be easy enough.

    I've sent him my 580 upgrade source file a while ago and recognize some bits from it in his model. Time permitting, I'd do the reverse and at least try to finish the job.

    This is such a beautiful model! Are there any repaints for it? There are even more paints on the development thread, but they are not included in the Beta package. I wonder if they will be released eventually, or if the model is still being developed. The thread here certainly does not seem to have generated much response.

    Progress on this project does seem to be very slow.

    This is the release thread:

    Any updates will take their time. Bernie is a busy guy and real life comes before community-based add-on greed.
