  2. TomcatUK liked a post in a topic by Ivana Fly in What a sight ! RAF 100 flypast over Hyde Park corner London   
    Dozens of aircraft fly over Buckingham Palace as the Royal Air Force celebrates 100 years of its proud history The Queen and other members of the Royal Family saw the display - which included the new F-35 fighter and Spitfires - from the palace balcony.
    Earlier they marked the centenary at a special service in Westminster Abbey.
    The service began what the head of the RAF said would be a "tremendous" day of events to mark its 100 years.
    Three F-35 Lightning stealth fighters were involved in the flypast and 22 Typhoons spelt out 100 as they flew over the palace.Nine helicopters led the armada, while the Red Arrows brought up the rear.
    The aircraft assembled in holding patterns off the coast of East Anglia before merging near Ipswich and flying down the A12 corridor to London
    The flypast has been organised by Wing Commander Kevin Gatland, chief of staff of the Tornado bomber force at RAF Marham in Norfolk.

    The meticulously planned show will feature 17 different types of aircraft, including C-130 Hercules Airbus A400M and C-17 Globemaster III transport planes, Puma and Chinook military helicopters, and Hawk and Typhoon fast jets.

    Just Flight Previews Hawk T1/A Advanced Trainer For X-Plane 11
    Just Flight recently previewed more screenshots of their upcoming HAWK T1/A Advanced Trainer for X-Plane 11, in partnership with Thranda Design.
    This X-Plane port of their FSX/P3D Hawk will be a highly detailed rendition of the British-made jet trainer from BAe Systems, will have 4K textures throughout and make use of X-Plane 11’s PBR system.
    No price or release date has been announced, yet, but we will keep you updated on the aircraft’s development. You can also monitor the Just Flight product page.

    Source: ThresholdX.net
     
    Cedric Gauche has released a major update to his EDDK Cologne/Bonn scenery, which has been proven time and again to be an incredible act of generosity, as this scenery is free! This version, 3.01, comes with a few notable new features:
    Custom ground textures incl. PBR normal maps Flowers added to vegetation new textures for shrubs and some trees Ortho4xp option for solving elevation problems with some objects Minor fixes ‍
    If you missed version 3.0, it came with these new features:
    Terramax seasons New day and night textures for many buildings New vegetation and trees New buildings (Fedex, terminal 2, P1 & P2) Better peformance Ortho for airport and surroundings (ZL20) with snow textures for Terramax Custom mesh with sloped run- and taxiways 2018 ground layout Delta Apron 3 static 767F Star Air aircrafts Documentation in englisch and german Configuration options for visuals, performance and or using another mesh / orthos ‍
    I'm really loving the new ground textures! Those are something that brings a scenery to the next level, in my opinion.
    That's all! Happy flying, and have a lovely day!

    The ARM flights were flown on NASA’s SubsoniC Research Aircraft Testbed G-III aircraft, or SCRAT, at NASA’s Armstrong Flight Research Center in California. NASA combined three technologies, including Landing Gear Noise Reduction, landing gear cavity treatments, and the Adaptive Compliant Trailing Edge flexible wing flap, to demonstrate a reduction in airframe noise in excess of 70 percent. This may reduce aircraft noise for communities that live near airports. Credits: NASA/Ken Ulbrich

    Hello fellow loungers,
    I just wanted to put out a thanks to all for the continued support and involvement with the Lounge.  From the initial days of myself, Edson and Sparks talking about how we would like to see this and now a couple years in its grown I am very surprised. We have had some ups/downs, creative differences, people coming and going and some rather "entertaining" moments chatting with all but overall its been a goodtime.
    Here's to continued growth, new faces, new experiences and more fun!
    Thanks one and all!
    Your I dont Give a Flying F because I will tell it straight co-creater/host (looking to stream soon).

  11. TomcatUK liked a post in a topic by Dreadmetis in FSPassengers will get updated for P3D v4 before Christmas...   
    The famous addon FSPassengers is finally getting some fresh news from its lonely developer. It has been a hard work for him to rewrite the whole program to 64 bit compatibility, but he is getting there eventually, an ETA is between september and Christmas.
    FSPassengers have been available for FSX and 32 bit P3D since a whole lot of time, and a great companion for any passenger flight, bringing an ambiance aboard your plane with passengers sound as soon as boarding till leaving the plane (they will react to bad treatments😁), jokes from the navigating personnel, some stuff to do during long flights (you choose meal servicing/ film choices), other small things like very effective shortcuts for autopilot/ radios, a carrier mode way before any other competitor actually too, etc...
    My only regret is the time it took

    FSLabs Announce New A319-X Feature
     
      FSLabs on their forums has just shown off some shots of their newest feature that will be included with their upcoming A319-X. In what can be described as a ‘buggy’ feature, this new addition to the aircraft is yet another feature that only advances the in-depth reality that has come to be expected with FSLabs. A common occurrence in the real world of flying is that bugs are often found splattered across the windscreen after departing or arriving and FSLabs have decided that they should model this to add that extra level of realism.

  22. OMGEDSON liked a post in a topic by TomcatUK in Quality Wings 787 - service pack 1 upgrade WARNING   
    TSL CREW please spread the word to avoid the pain that I have been going through .... (this probably only applies to FSX & FSX:SE versions as the P3D release presumably only shipped with SP1 from day 1?):
    Anyone that is upgrading the Quality Wings 787 to the latest Service Pack released in May 2018 needs to remove liveries and uninstall the QW787 BEFORE they run the service pack (SP1 = v1.1.0) installer.
    I also recommend backing up QW787 config files (qw787.cfg and the 2 aircraft.cfg files) before you do this as these are not preserved and you will have to manually configure things like remembering whether the aircraft should start in cold and dark panel state; any changes you have made to fix ATC aircraft type call outs; airline parking preferences etc.
    Guidance posted recently on the official support page:

    Installation / update of existing installation Due to the scope of this update we do not offer a patch installer like in previous hotfixes. For a successful installation, please follow the steps below: 1. Uninstall all installed liveries using the QW Dispatcher (can be found in your start menu) 2. Uninstall the Ultimate 787 Collection (Click Start , and then click Control Panel. Under Programs, click Uninstall a program. Select the Ultimate 787 Collection) 3. Download the full installer (v1.1.0) from Flight1.com 4. Reinstall the product using the new installer  —
    Note: There are no warnings or programmatic attempts to detect an existing installation in the sim. The service pack just wipes a whole load of QW 787 config files (including the qw787.cfg and two aircraft.cfg files under the main Simobjects/Airplanes folder path) and won’t let you reinstall liveries easily. So I would add step 0 which is back up the cfg files mentioned above, before you uninstall things.

    QualityWings Simulation Ultimate 787 Released for P3D V4
        At long last, the QualityWings Simulation Ultimate 787 has been released for Prepar3D V4. With the highly successful release of the 787 for FSX, the QualityWings beta team has been hard at work testing this bird to get it ready for v4. With several new improvements on the model, EFB and performance, simmers will enjoy flying one of the most modern aircraft in the 64-bit sim.
    The Prepar3D V4 version comes with a huge feature set, and includes plenty of bug fixes and updates from the FSX version. This is based off months of feedback from the community.
    Both the 787-8 and the 787-9 will be included in the package, with the -10 variant coming soon. Not only have the aircraft been modelled visually in high quality, but also the unique characteristics of each plane has been created. This includes the the 787-9 HLFC system. Both aircraft include the 787 specific autodrag function, maneuver load alleviation, wing-flex and smooth animations.
