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.'

Thank you for making these. They are working perfectly. Much Appreciated.
RFSCENERYBUILDING - LIBR BRINDISI PAPOLA CASALE FSX P3D
David
This is my first aiport from this developer and I am really impressed. I was hard pressed which one of their products to choose but opted for LIBR as it caters for various airline companies which gives me the choice of flying an airline that services this airport. The detail is excellent and the surrounding scenery, outside of the airport boundary, is also modelled which makes it all the more immersive. M-
y landing was at dusk and the lighting around the airport really stands out and it does appear to be better than some more "high profile" developers. -
I look forward to many more flights to and from Brindisi Casale airport in the future. High-
ly recommended plus this add-on airport also works fine on FSX Steam Edition.
CARENADO - PC12 HD SERIES FOR X-PLANE 11
ALVARO
Fellow Captains, Th-
is aircraft is an average Carenado product; nothing out of this world; but once you combine it with Reality Expansion Pack for Carenado PC12 XP11, Garmin GTN750 (payware) and terrain radar (free add-on), it becomes one of the best GA aircraft for XPLANE. The flight Dynamics seem to be very good (Although I am real Pilot I never flown the PC12 in real life), almost all the systems work properly, and the reality that the GTN750 adds into the operation, it makes this aircraft almost a "study level". To be honest, I also own the TBM900 from X- Aviation, which everybody regards as the best GA for Xplane but I enjoyed and preferred the PC12. So, fellow Captains, now this is on sale, give an chance, but remember you need to get the REP expansion also, and if you can the Garmin 750, it might get a little expensive, but you will love it, for sure!!. Gree-
tings Commanders.
VIRTUALCOL - AIRBUS A220 SERIES PACK FSX/P3D
Leo
This aircraft is amazing, is really the beginning of the new quality of Virtualcol prducts. Virtualcol really made a great and fun aircraft to fly. The dynamics are good, the aircraft and cockpit resolutions are good, FPS friendly and comes with a good amount of liveries and free ones can be found. Just remember to download the update on the Virtualcol page because the A220-300 model will not show up. Even though a year has past since the release of this product, the engine sometimes makes a weird noise when taxing or at low speeds but not as much as before the update. Overall is really good, a great addition for the sims and completely worth the price.
MFSG - HALIFAX STANFIELD INTL AIRPORT CYHZ 2020 FSX P3D FS2004
Fulvio
Another great product, and a very good location choice. As for the former MFSG airports, great idea tolet the user choose if exclude the sorrounding photoscenery, since people like me is used to fly with ORBX Open_LC add-ons.

RFSCENERYBUILDING - LIPZ VENICE MARCO POLO AIRPORT FSX P3D
Anthony
Nice airport but like all RF Scenery they are not in the same league as Orbx quality so l can’t give them a 5/5. They are really good and do deserve a 4/5.

LIONHEART CREATIONS - LIONHEART - DIAMOND STAR DA40 XLS FSX P3D
David
Just got my PPL in a DA-40. Does not look, feel, or sound like the real aircraft. No left turning tendency on takeoff. Doesn’t float on the landings. Horrible G1000 functionality. Just as good as the Abacus A380.
