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.'

very well done and unlike others I find the interior useless so for me it is complete

One of my favorite bush trips was the Florida trip from the FSAcademy Voyager. This addon makes the trip along the keys even better. It now make the trip so much more immersive. Recommended buy if you spend anytime in the keys area.

very beautiful airport because i grew up here in this air force base shared between Portugal and US, probably one of the most important (strategically __________) US bases because all US military planes normally stop here due being in the middle of US and Europe so the pilots can rest and arm the planes, i grew up in this base (BA-4) because my father was an officer of Portuguese AF (from 80´s to 2000´s. This airport was very well done and it is an amazing place to explore, it has a very big runway for all type of planes, congrats tropicalsim, check my YT for reviews (guitargamery)

It lacks details and it's not like you can see much of it in real life, it could improve in those aspects
BORIS AUDIO WORKS - CIRRUS SR-22 SOUND SET - MSFS
David
Bought this for the XP11 SR22 and it was the best GA sound pack I've ever heard. Whilst the MSFS version is not quite as articulate or wide ranging in sounds as the XP11 version, it's still an absolute must have, if you enjoy the SR22 in MSFS, and so much better than the stock sounds. I wish they had got things like the AC / fan sounds working with the MSFS version, as they did with the XP11 version.

Die Bodenstruckture-
n könnten tatsächlich realistischer sein und einige Beschriftungen fehlen auch an den Airport Gebäuden. Ansonsten sehr gute detallierte Umsetzung mit fast liebevollen Details.Man sollte mal z.B. mit einem Follow me Car die Scenerie abfahren. Framerate sehr gut auf meinem PC System, auch die Seaplane Base ist gut nachgebildet.Kl-
eines Update durch S Design wäre gut

Oslo belongs to one of their best airports! Pricy but worth every euro!

All in all very detailed, although it hits performance a bit. Also some wrong scaling on buildings. The tower for instance looks way too short compared to real life. No airport interiors, which I hope will come with future updates.

It's well detailed and flies well, the developer's care is unmatched, for anyone who loves the golden age of aviation it's a great representation!
