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.'

DRZEWIECKI DESIGN - SEATTLE AIRPORTS X FSX P3D
Holden Riley
This is far and away my favorite scenery addon ever. I grew up in Seattle, and have spent more of my time at KPAE and KBFI, PAE in particular, than any other place in the city over the years. For a long time, the three Boeing west side facilities have been severely lacking in the flight sim world, something that left a big gap in my simming experience as I regularly do test flights and delivery flights (as observed by myself and taught to me by Boeing test crews) but always in poor, unrealistic default scenery. But now, Drzewiecki Design has created my home field (KPAE) as well as the two other Boeing west side facilities, KRNT and KBFI, plus Auburn Airport (S50) in stunning detail! The accuracy of these airports is simply breathtaking as I see my home brought to life in the sim world. I can even visit my flight school at Paine Field with their real storefront and self pump station! This package blends seamlessly with their Seattle City X package and both packages have outstanding performance and visuals. Special thanks to Drzewiecki Design for this long awaited and much appreciated package!
DRZEWIECKI DESIGN - SEATTLE CITY X FSX P3D
Holden Riley
Extremely accurate rendition of the city I grew up in. Fantastic performance and suitable in all sims from FSX to P3D V4, and an X-Plane version is on the way (separate from this). It's an astonishing coverage area of the entire I5 Corridor of the Puget Sound. My only complaint is that the winter textures are not as high quality as the other seasons, but it is a minor detraction. It looks amazing and plays well with all my other addons including Taxi2Gate's KSEA in P3D V3 and P3D V4 as well as Orbx PNW. Amazing work to Drzewiecki Design. I couldn't be happier.
