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 - NEW YORK CITY X V2 FSX P3D
bruce hardy
I run this in P3DV4.2 on a 4K i7700K GTX1080 setup. It's buttery smooth. I was not always a fan of DD. I had an old Miami that never worked in FS9 but this is totally in the other direction. I flew in from KALB and first noticed the very detailed 5M mesh somewhere up the Hudson.......no-
t a single drop in FPS and that applied right into Manahattan. If you have a high end system it's a no brainer. Anything lower in the food chain and you might have to look at your config. A totally immersive NYC. I'll now consider the airports add-on.
AEROSOFT - US CITIES X - BOSTON FSX P3D
Shanard Letang
This scenery will greatly improve the Boston surrounding area. There accurately placed buildings, bridges and vegetation. The only improvement would be to have night lighting however, I don't fly much at night so no issues there. This is compatible with FlyTampa's KBOS. Follow instructions on FlyTampa's site and ensure the AF2_KBOS is labeled off.

LATINVFR - BERMUDA TXKF
Enrique Pineda
Simply magnificent! What a pleasure to fly to this island! I congratulate the LatinVFR team for such a great work and for so many hours of exciting approaches and departures. I used to fly the PMDG's 747 and I have never experienced FTP issues, but I have a powerful computer. By day and by night, everything looks beautiful and accurate. I only have one question for the LatinVFR guys: what are u waiting for the P3Dv4 version release? Please, don't be so long!
AEROSOFT - DOUGLAS DC-8 P3D4
George Joachim
An excellent by gone era airliner. There is a moderate amount of systems simulation. The sounds are great. The modelling is great and there are numerous liveries. I personally wish for a ground power and air supply truck. The aircraft is stable and is a joy to manually take off and manually land. I also wish for a clickable disappearing yoke because it conceals the DME. Overall a great vintage airliner and if you like these, go get her... I would love to see a B747-SP, which is of the same era.

RICHER SIMULATIONS - CARIBSKY - ANTIGUA 2018 FSX P3D
Jose Otero
The pictures do not do the island any justice. In the sim (day time) it a beautiful tropical scenery with lovely coastlines. I have it installed in p3d v4.2 with payware TAPA and they work and perform well. The developer is very responsive to questions and concerns and it's the primary reason for me being a repeat customer.
