The RS-11 was build by Alco in the early 1956 as a diesel electric locomotive and classified as a road switcher. With 1,800 hp, two axle trucks with B-B wheel arrangement the RS11 was Alco’s answer to the GP9 produced by EMD.

Advantages of the RS11 were faster acceleration because of turbo charging and a higher tractive effort rating. The locomotive could be found in heavy haul freight as well as passenger services.

In over eight years production time 425 units were build for the American and Mexican market. A few examples of this model are still in service and could be found working for various railroads in the US.

This is Absolutely the most detailed beautiful desert you could ever want to fly over, completely detailed down to ground level. Its amazing to see some of the villages up in the mounains so remote but at the same time in such awesome landscape. I highly recommend this scenery, Its a one of a kind and the only photo-real for the UAE! Great Job!

SKY SIMULATIONS - MCDONNELL DOUGLAS DC-9 FSX V2
Radoslav Tucakov
After receiving alternative installer with unique key I have managed to install this nice product. And here are the impressions: A-
fter purchasing this product you will have complete DC-9 line of planes (all series), which is not the case with the other product of this plane. It is not down to the core simulated plane but it's far from simple click and fly type of products. It looks and feels great and gives you decent complexity and depth of simulation. I'm not crazy for simulated abnormal operations and all I want from classical plane in my FS is to be able to fly it and enjoy it. That is exactly what SKY SIMULATION DC-9 series offered me. The main difference from previous version is updated VC with more details and it looks very nice with all those photo real textures. You'll be able to almost feel the smell of that old classical, steam gauge cockpit. :) Great job on the interior part. Every series of DC-9 have different VC and 2d panel simulated and that makes this product even more interesting. I didn't notice huge difference on outside model but it is correctly modeled and nicely textured. I love it, and the most important thing is that you'll be able to do your own repaints since SKY SIMULATIONS is offering you great layered paint kits for all their planes. Flight dynamics are greatly improved. I've tried DC-9-30 and 50 and in comparison it with previous version they feel more stable during climb and turns. Autopil-
ot have nice old school slow response. Keep in mind that these are old ladies and you should think few steps ahead while flying them. I'm really a great DC-9 fan. I love this plane since it was the first aircraft I ever fly as a kid, therefore I must respect everything SKY SIMULATIONS have done creating all DC-9 line of aircraft, and they have done a great job. If you love steam gauges classic planes this is a great product for you and it offers much more than I have just say about it. The only thing I disliked about this product is installer problem I have and I hope this alternative one I've received from the author will become standard one in the future.

Best scenery ever! Highly recommended. Taxi2Gate has as always done a great job with this scenery.
GKS - F-111E STANDARD EDITION
TS Brady
This is an update of an earlier review. GKS provided a new soundpack which addresses my previous complaints. Gone is the overwhelming turbine whine and loud slamming sounds when wings fold forward and back. In its place is just a nice jet rumble, with distinct afterburner and a very subtle thud to provide feedback of wing fold status. This is so much better and now one can focus on flying and enjoying the plane without distracting and over-powering sound-effects. -
And talk about enjoying the plane, it has several unique features such as the bending wingtips when extended forward, to convey the sense of weight. The flight model is very believable and one can literally feel the weight, momentum and incredible speed of this aircraft. The cockpit is really well done, with an authentic and weathered look, just like the real thing. And going through the sound barrier is an absolute hoot in this plane; there is a vapor cloud and sonic boom - a real sense of occasion! Wi-
th fantastic response by the developers and the sound sorted out, I have no problem in recommending it and giving it five stars. For the price, it can't be beat.

Excellent scenery at a great price. Good to see another company make scenery for those of us who decided to move on to P3D.
