The classic Cold War design of the F-89 Scorpion was the product of a 1945 USAAF specification for a night fighter. The aircraft was to have a crew of two with an offensive armament of six 20mm cannon. The prototype was first flown on August 16, 1948 by test pilot Fred C. Bretcher. The first major production model was the F-89D, which swapped the cannon for a phalanx of 104 missiles. The final version was the F-89J, which carried two Genie nuclear-tipped missiles along with four Falcon air-to-air missiles tipped with high explosives. Both the D and J versions used highly advanced Hughes fire control systems coupled with radar and computers. Although the Scorpion appears quaint and dated now, these were highly advanced aircraft for their time. The Howard Hughes movie Jet Pilot starring John Wayne and Janet Leigh prominently features the F-89 as a 'supporting actor.'

NXGN SIMULATIONS - CITATION CJ4X FSX P3D
Gavin Foster
No ability to fly SIDs or STARs, so not a "replica" of a ProLine 21. This makes it very overpriced in my view.
FLIGHT 1 - QUALITYWINGS SIMULATIONS - THE ULTIMATE 146 COLLECTION FSX P3D
Bob Donovan
Prepar3d users - be advised this aircraft is not updated for P3D v3 or v4. It will not work even if you do a frankenstein install. Great airplane, but QW hasn't circled back to make this compatible. F1 and Simmarket should highlight this since "P3D" is in the title.
RICHER SIMULATIONS - CARIBSKY ST. KITTS 2017 FSX FSXSE P3D
Robert Hesterberg
For those who fly throughout the Caribbean Richer Simulations is a must to have. The color, detail, and all the “eye candy” features makes it so worthwhile. I can only hope they continue to focus on the islands of this region. Highly recommended. -

TROPICALSIM - SÃO PAULO GUARULHOS SBGR 2017 FS2004
Nadeem Zabaneh
This scenery is exceptionally. Great on FPS and performance. Nicely detailed for FS9. Noticed a couple of issues however the main thing is that some ground textures are flickering and maybe Tropicalsim can fix it by releasing an update soon? Althou-
gh, nice work overall!

I own almost everything FSDT has put out all these years and i am truly impressed with the quality of this product both visually and performance wise. Every aircraft tested showed smooth FPS and SODE fully functioned. More please FSDT.

BLUEPRINT - MONTREAL TRUDEAU CYUL V2 FS2004
André Denis
Hello fellow virtual pilots, I am still flying my impeccable and add-on filled FS9, and don't intend to let it ever go. Having been a resident of Montréal all my life (56 years old), it is no secret that no one in the whole flying simulation industry, offered CYUL as an add-on scenery. Many thanks to BluePrint Simulations, they sure have saved the day admirably. Installatio-
n went on just like a breeze, and SimMarket was a perfect intermediary in the user friendly download process. CYU-
L is now a complete night and day transformation to the default one on either FS9 and FSX. Frame rates are flowing just fine, even with all options clicked on at start up menu configuration. When flying at any add-on airports/airpla-
nes/helicopters-
, I always chose "simple clouds" or clear skies, just so that FPS are barely an issue. My OS is still on Windows XP Pro 32, and could not be used as a stand by or back up computer at NASA. BluePrint's CYUL V2 FS2004 performs truly like a champ. André-

REALWORLD SCENERY - REALWORLD SCENERY GREECE 3D VOL.1.3 FSX P3D
Hyperas ...
Une scène qui en elle-même ne présente aucun intérêt. A part les routes et quelques monuments, il n'y a pas grand chose de réaliste. L'an-
cien aéroport d'Helliniko disparaît tout bonnement du scenery. Les décors sont grossiers avec des toits bleus, rouges à Athènes. On est loin des scènes réalistes de France VFR à titre de comparaison. La hotline dit qu'il faut acheter et installer tous les sceneries ensemble pour que ça marche. Avec la mauvaise expérience de celui-là, je ne suis pas trop tenté de dépenser autant d'argent.
CERA - AS365N3 FSX P3D
Chris Goodyer
Outstanding helicopter, totally worth full price and even better in the sale. Model is exceptionally detailed. Animations window incoud G quick start option is superbly easy to use. Handling is a tad s Nairobi for my liking but easy with practice. So much you can do with it: water landings, winch, passenger carrying and with an airframe with basic autopilot, retractable gear, and a fully clickable VC. Get it!
JUSTSIM - LUXEMBOURG FINDEL AIRPORT ELLX FSX P3D
Chris Goodyer
Reasonable scenery but elevation issue with a car park on site. It's not Orbx, Vector or FreeMesh related. Developer has not responded to my support request. Haven't used since as the floating car park ruins the immersion.
