Thank you Roger, Paul, and Bill!
There's actuallytwo different Bleriot's in the screenshots. One is powered by an Anzani, where-as the other is one of those that were powered by a Le Rhone rotary engine (various examples of both of these fly today).
There are three different Bleriot variants for FSX (the two above included), available here, as you will notice through the tabs: http://bleriot-11-en.blogspot.com/
When installing all of them, you have to re-name the main folder names for the individual aircraft, as well as re-title the individual title lines in the different aircraft.cfg files, otherwise those are written all the same. I also didn't quite like the textures for the pilots, so I made some changes.
Is that a Bleriot with the rotary engine in the later shots? Seen a replice flying twice at Hahnweide, looked like awesome fun!

This is my idea of good weekend flying. This is one of the new-build reproductions, built all to original plans, with a modern Rotec engine on the front (you can actually order one of these Bleriots to be built for you, to your own specifications). One of the options for these reproductions, is whether to have the original wing-warping or to have ailerons fitted - with this example, owned by Eric Preston, it was decided to keep the original wing warping. According to Eric, just about all that the wing warping is good for, is just to balance the aircraft enough through turns, which are guided/done primarily with the rudder, otherwise the wing warping really doesn't do much.
That is a lovely paint job on the Jenny. Where did you get that?
It's one of the three default FS9 schemes (though the model is one of the FSX-converted types). I did black-out the alpha channel for the decal texture file, so that the markings on the side of the rear fuselage weren't present - I like the over-all look of it a lot better, and it changed it from being a scheme I didn't like and didn't use, to being the one I use the most.
Here's a very nice, real-life, red-painted Jenny (with many other videos of this aircraft found under the uploader's account):
John is there any chance WARBIRDSIm could do a flying porta potty? Because I truly believe that your screenshots would sell hundreds..............friggin awesome work!!!
Great screanshots....Love the vintage Bipes....Slow and graceful flying, and lots of fun....
I love this Jenny, but I never managed to make it look so good on screenshots. Great job, thanks for sharing.
