History

Heinkel's He 219 Uhu is undoubtedly one of the most advanced aircraft to emerge from World War II. Conceived solely as a gun platform to serve as a defensive night fighter, the plane featured a bubble-top cockpit that was well forward, affording the pilot superb visibility. The cockpit was equipped with ejection seats, and was exceptionally well laid out. All controls were easy to reach and identify. Combined with the tricycle landing gear, this plane was truly a "pilot's aircraft" and was very easy to fly. It was stable and predictable, exactly what one would expect from a plane with the Uhu's intended purpose. The earlier versions were adequately powered by the Daimler-Benz DB 603A, and had good rates of climb and acceptable top speeds approaching 400 mph. However, later versions of the He 219 were much heavier, and because the more advanced, powerful engines were in short supply, these variants suffered in performance.

The He 219 was a superb and lethal gun platform and the later versions packed as many as eight cannon, including the potent 30mm "Schrage Musik" which fired upward into a bomber's belly at an oblique angle. These accompanied as many as six forward-firing cannon. The "Uhu" was absolutely devastating to any aircraft that came into range of its guns. This was accomplished through the use of radar, a new technology. Ground-based stations would direct the night fighter to the bomber stream, and when in range, the Uhu's radar operator would then take over and guide the pilot to within 100 meters of the target. The bristling antennae were ugly and added a lot of drag, reducing the aircraft's ultimate top speed substantially. But without the radar the plane would have been useless at night, and since the Uhu was still about 150 mph faster than the Allied four-engine bombers, this was really not a handicap. Some of the latest versions were used to track, hunt down, and kill the Mosquito bombers, which were a much more challenging quarry than the lumbering four-engine craft comprising most of the night fighter's prey.

In the end, the He 219 fell victim to bad decision-making and was too little, too late. But it was the most advanced aircraft for its time, signaling the shape of things to come.

AEROSOFT - KOSICE-BARCA AIRPORT P3D4
Blanka
nice scenery and my favourite airport love kosice city is very good amazing mountain around the airport 4 stars for terminal texture
PAINTSIM - HD TEXTURE PACK FOR WILCO AIRBUS A340 FS2004
Richard
There's no doubt that these textures are of a high quality and that the author has enhanced the look of the aircraft. However, there's no getting over the fact that it's a lot of money especially compared to the cost of the the aircraft add on itself. It would be helpful if there was an increasing discount based upon the number of 'livery' packages you buy. I'd like to buy more but the cost would compare to buying an aircraft add on which just doesn't sit well with my bank balance. Goo-
d luck and thanks to the author though. He's to be applauded for his efforts and for enhancing our Flight sim experience.

LATINVFR - MADRID LEMD P3DV4
Raul
Consider this one of LatinVFR masterpieces. First, for such a massive airport I have no FPS drop at all (PMDG737 NGXu, 747v3 and Majestic Q400 so far tested). Unlike other sceneries, the parking's with GSX and VDGS are precise, no need to modify parking position manually at all. The gates are number exactly as in Navigraph charts, so choose your parking position in GSX after landing and just follow the charts to your gate(and there are a lot of gates, a lot!). The terminals are beautifully modeled with things that are no even in the description like glass elevators moving. Night illumination while not the best I have seen, its beautiful. Its kind of compatible with ORBX global, I said "kind of" because as you enter the scenery area you can see the change in colors, its subtle but still noticeable. My only complaint if any is that this airport have around 5 towers and you can only get tower view from only one. But that's easily fix with chase plane. I do not feel like taking any stars for the small things I pointed out, so it is a 5 star scenery.
AFLOSIM - CLUJ-NAPOCA AIRPORT FSX P3D
Keith
Stunning little airport! Lots of detail and ground clutter, dirty apron; animated vehicles, birds, people, windsock, etc. The winter ice and snow effects with optional snow piles is excellent. Best feature of all is something I've never seen before in FS - the optional rainbow! (as with some of these things, can be turned on or off via the configurator). Night lighting good. Highly recommended.
BDOAVIATION - LAMEZIA TERME LICA FSX P3D
Jose
Beautiful airport, but there's an issue with the afcad. AI airplanes park where the nice static planes were placed. So you have AI on top of the static. The photo scenery is nicely done, but it doesn't play well with the freeware Italian scenery package. It does blend well with ORBX/LC/Vectors-
. You can disable some of the photo included, but god luck finding the .bgl files. They have unusual names and you will have to go through one by one. There's also a slight performance hit when viewing the terminal. Ha-
ving said all that, I think it's a beautiful looking airport even though a bit over priced even when it's on sale. Lastly I contacted support and did not receive a prompt response. If they fix the afcad, I'll revise my review.

AEROSOFT - LUKLA - MOUNT EVEREST EXTREME FSX
ALVARO
Highly recommended for those who still fly in FSX just waiting for MSF2020. The airport and scenery around, are excellent. It really does challenge your skills as pilot, it is probably one of the most difficult approaches and landings in the world.
FSOARES - SANTAREM AIRPORT - SBSN - FSX P3DV3 P3DV4
Markus
What a beautiful little scenery this is, very well done! It features detailed modelling and crisp texturing throughout, with highly realistic looking textures. And the beauty of it, this is the case in ALL areas of the airport, from the fire station to the maintenance hangars, no area is overlooked. Adding to that, the airport is integrated flawlessly into ORBX OpenLC SA. Perfectly animated and functional SODE windsocks complement the scenery, as well as realistic looking runway lights. I've sent two suggestions for improvement to the developer, who instantly replied and agreed, taking notes for the next update. This is excellent support.
