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.'

REALWORLDSCENERY - KDAY - JAMES M. COX - DAYTON INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT P3D4
Shanard Letang
Looks like the real thing. I haven't tried RWS before but I'm impressed with their work. HD textures and season changes is a huge plus!
JUSTSIM - HAMBURG AIRPORT - HELMUT SCHMIDT - EDDH FSX P3D
Peter Müller
I bought this scenery as I was really tired of the rehashed "professional" version by another company. It was my only airport where the frames dropped below acceptable levels when arriving or departing. So I went ahead and tried this one... although I have to admit, that I was abit of a sceptic at first, as I didn't knew JustSim. With their version of Hamburg however arriving there is like coming home. The performance is amazing, even with very complex aircraft. I use all the stuff by OrbX and even AI Ship traffic. Still I have smooth sailing all the way. So yeah - I totally recommend this product. Same goes for LCLK.
BANGKOK AIRPORT VOL1 SUVARNABHUMI INTERNATIONAL FSX
Cavin Ng
Update earlier review about the stutter issue when approaching RW19..support responded within reasonable timeframe and provided remedy and stutter issue is resolved by removing one photoscenery file of buildings. Airport and terrains still look great and less the irritating micro stutter issue.
PILOT'S FSG - PILOT'S - FS GLOBAL ULTIMATE - NEXT GENERATION FTX FSX P3D FSW
Marco Gabbrielli
an amazing change to the landscape, mostly hugely enjoyable by bush pilots, yet even by high flying guys too quite an impact to fps if you set the mesh resolution high as suggested, yet if installed it can't be removed, such is the difference appreciated, rather it's the CPU that should be upgraded
FLIGHTSCENE - TAHITI AND SOCIETY ISLANDS FSX P3D
Peter McLennan
This is a thing of great beauty. The mesh seems very detailed, and the textures (autogen and custom) are also fine. (Unfortunately, P3D v4 doesn't like loading the highest resolution until you've pretty much crashed into it, but this happens everywhere.) -
There's a lot of eye candy at the airports and the water seems alive and inviting. I had trouble installing this scenery, but the support from Flightscene was fantastic.
VIDAN DESIGN - AALBORG X FSX P3D
MR ANSELM J MCILWRATH

MK-STUDIOS - LISBON P3D4
Stefano Porrà
Being there last summer, MKS rendition is a magic balance of 3d landmark objects, beautifully modelled 3d airport building nicely textured, outstanding ground poly details formtwys and rwys. A must have, filling the hole left for a decent Lisbon scenario in P3D for less than 30€. Well done MKS.
RICHER SIMULATIONS - CARIBSKY - BARBADOS 2017 FSX P3D
Alexandre Gabriel Gomes SILVA
Show de cenário, e FPS amigáveis, mesmo com este monte de luzes a noite. Tive problemas na instalação e nunca vi um suporte via e-mail tão rápido, Parabéns por tudo.
AEROSKY PRODUCTION - COZY ATMOSPHERE SET P3D V3
Graham Smith
I was so pleased with Cozy Universal Clouds that I bought Cozy Atmosphere Set too. These two products have transformed how my P3dv3.4 sim world looks, using my ageing Active Sky Next for Prepar3D to generate the weather. If like me, you were considering extending your use of P3Dv3 a little longer before expensive upgrading to v4, Give these Aero Sky products a try!
TURBINE SOUND STUDIOS - BOEING 777-GE90-115B SOUNDPACK FSX P3D
Erich Berner
Superbly engineered sound set. Normally, PMDG provide excellent soundpacks for their aircraft, but this is actually an improvement over the PMDG set. After flying the PMDG 777 since it came out, I only just recently replaced the sounds with the TSS soundpack and was very pleasantly surprised. This replacement is very well designed for external AND virtual cockpit perspectives. Start-up sounds are particularly satisfying.
