The 2 cities (Cervinia and Zermatt) built using more than one hundred types of 3D buildings typical of mountain areas.

  4. FSX Buffalo Airways Braddick DC3-TP Repaint based on the work of Manfred Jahn and his team. Buffalo Airways looking for a Turbo Dakota to increase its fleet. Work dedicated to Arnie Schreder. By JA Lopez R. Screenshot of Buffalo Airways Braddick DC3-TP in flight. Extract the zip to a temporary folder or open it in Windows Explorer. The root folder contains three subfolders: Effects, Simobjects, and Sound. You should be able to copy these three folders directly to your "Flight Simulator X" folder using "merge" or "integrate folders" mode (NOT replace). If you have any misgivings about this procedure play it safe, enter the source subfolders individually and copy the files individually to the respective FSX target folders. Should you already have a working installation of the FSX Basler BT- 67 you can skip or abort copying the Sound folder, and from the Effects folder only the single file fx_fsx heat shimmer.fx will be needed.

  6. DreamFoil Creations just released their update to their (already amazing) Bell 407 for X-Plane. If you already have this helicopter, you can now grab the update from the X-Plane.org store. The DreamFoil Creations Bell 407 is one of the very few helicopters compatible with X-Plane 11 and Fred has been hard at work making it compatible with X-Plane’s latest versions, as well as VR (yep, VR, folks). Here is the updated changelog: DreamFoil is now starting to work on the S300 (which is very close to be finished) and then, the much-awaited AS350. Where to get the DreamFoil Creations Bell 407 update If you have already purchased the 407 in the past, you should have it available in your X-Plane.org account. If not, go buy it right away! You won’t regret it!

  8. NEMETH DESIGNS UPDATED THEIR BK-117 FOR FSX AND P3D The team, that recently returned to active duty, has been slowly updating their older models. This time it was the turn of their BK-117 which you can now enjoy fully in both FSX and P3D. According a post on their Facebook Group, “it can be installed for FSX/FSXSE and P3Dv4” and users can get the latest version at the official website (meaning the update should be free for those who already own it). Where to get the Nemeth Designs BK-117 for FSX and P3D If you don’t own it yet, though, you can purchase it by clicking the DEVELOPER link below.

  9. I am excited to share this little Scottish airport with you. I received an email upon it's release and decided to give it a go. I am pleased to say the airport is very nice for a freeware airport. Two asphalt runways and two grass strips. Lots of static aircraft (mostly gliders as this airport is home to the Deeside Gliding Club. I was first introduced to the ICON A5 when Microsoft introduced Microsoft Flight after having discontinuing support for Flight Simulator X. I found it a versatile little plane that is quite fun to fly. I'm sure you will feel the same way. Links to both, the scenery and the A5 are below. Both are freeware and work perfectly in P3Dv4. Enjoy! SOURCE INFO X6AB Scenery LINK : http://www.fs2000.org/2018/03/04/fsx-p3d-aboyne-x6ab-scotland-scenery/ ICON A5 Airplane LINK: https://www.rikoooo.com/downloads/viewdownload/17/464
  10. TSL Ground Operations Vehicle Repaint

    This is not just a ground vehicle to use for watching airport activities . . . it is a freaking race car too! We need a Thursday night race night at K5KY. Free Nuggets to the winner! Of course, that will require adding some route markings on the ground at the airport, but it would be a blast. And there could be little challenges, like who can park in the third parking spot in front of the hotel the fastest from a given point. For time to count, you must be inside the lines. Or, who can drift to a stop closest to the drive-thru window at the Nugget Shack. Just some ideas to change things up a bit and have some fun.
  11. Sorry, my last order from Design by Humans, as far as I know, has not even shipped (not Sky Lounge related). Ordered Dec. 29, 2017. 2 - 4 weeks delivery time. Gnope. I have emailed them about the order. Hopefully I get a positive response. Almost 2 months without a shipping confirmation. Mebbe one day the order will arrive. And now, my brother-in-law has passed away from cancer. My extra (like I really had any to begin with) money has been sent to my sister to help with funeral costs. So, no new orders from me for a little while at least.
  12. Lot's of rudder on that landing, well done.
  13. I love that ugly little plane!

  15. DISCLAIMER: I think news agencies rely on the overuse of exaggerated descriptions to sell stories. If the "engine" "disintegrated" over the Pacific, they would be searching for pieces of plane and bodies. You would think an "engine cover" coming apart mid-flight should be sensational enough! United Airlines engine disintegrates over Pacific, forcing emergency landing Passenger describes ‘scariest flight of my life’ after Boeing 777 engine cowling of UA1175 flying from San Francisco to Hawaii comes off. A United Airlines plane flying to Hawaii was forced to make an emergency landing after its engine began to fall apart mid-air. After what was described as “the scariest flight of my life” by one passenger, photos and videos taken through the windows showed an exposed engine shaking in mid-air after the “engine cowling” broke away. The drama on board the Boeing 777-222 began after a loud bang was heard roughly 35 minutes before the flight was scheduled to land in Honolulu. The pilots immediately sent out a distress call and were forced to make an emergency landing. A Google engineer on board the flight, Erik Haddad, who had a clear view of the exposed engine, apparently remained calm throughout the incident, uploading a series of photos to Twitter and quipping: “I don’t see anything about this in the manual.” SOURCE INFO DEVELOPER POST LINK : NEWS SITE ARTICLE LINK : https://www.theguardian.com/world/video/2018/feb/14/mid-air-terror-engine-falls-apart-on-united-airlines-flight-video https://www.theguardian.com/business/2018/feb/14/united-airlines-engine-ua1175-hawaii-san-francisco-disintegrates-over-pacific https://twitter.com/erikhaddad/status/963545023210909696/photo/1?ref_src=twsrc^tfw&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.theguardian.com%2Fbusiness%2F2018%2Ffeb%2F14%2Funited-airlines-engine-ua1175-hawaii-san-francisco-disintegrates-over-pacific
