    A little disappointing, just the same old "you crashed" screen. Wonder what these looked like externally for something like a gear up landing where you probably won't totally destroy the aircraft. ...

    Good luck!

    My experience with beta testing in FSX was that everything was pretty set in stone and mostly they were not looking for anything but "bugs".

    Wonder how the functionality of the shown 747-8 will be? I did get to fly the Dash-8F toward the end of my career. Quite a plane if not quite the skyrocket the 400 was.

    Very interesting. I expect that there may be some serious limitations here for those of us with more limited streaming capability available. The video is visually impressive, but I was disappointed...

    Just as a note, few larger tail draggers had a steerable tailwheel. The DHC-3 Otter being an exception with (a rather troublesome) electric unit. Unfortunately most people do not have multiple...

    Nice development, I had a couple of my fellow aviators who flew these. The Willy Fudd project was one of my favorites for Milton, these look like a great follow on aircraft!

    The pilot house on an Essex is nearly the size and arrangement of that of a Fletcher Class destroyer, pretty small for a fair sized ship because of the narrowness of the island. . I see that you...

    I have computers with XP; Win7 Pro; and Win10 all running FSX. For some reason my Win 7 Pro refuses to successfully upgrade to SP1, which would be useful in some instances.

    Maybe it's the way I fly it, I often have to bob my head around in the cockpit to see the runway on approach. Not so different from landing some of the hog nose radial powered fighters!
