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.'

AEROSOFT - NASSAU X - BAHAMAS INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT FSX P3D
Jackson Lyons
Works well in P3dv4 after making sure there aren't any conflicting bgls. Airport looks great, surrounding area isn't the best ie lack of custom buildings/landm-
arks and ortho isn't the best. Overall a great fly though.
FSPS - AIRLINE CREW 2019 P3D4
Alex Garrett
I purchased the first FSPS - ULTIMATE AIRLINE CREW in 2014 and did not use it much because it seemed monotonous. I only purchased the new FSPS - AIRLINE CREW 2019 because of the (update/discoun-
t) and even though it was nice to hear the new announcements, after a few flights they become monotonous. It would be nice if one could insert substitution recordings or if the software had several data bases to randomize the voices. Perhaps in the 2024 edition.

MFSG - KUSHIRO AIRPORT RJCK 2018 FSX FS2004
Cavin Ng
Pictures did not seems to be good.. but purchased Asahikawa and kushiro, and is pleasantly surprised. MFSG airports is value for money as i find reasonably good for both day and night effect compared to several chinese regional airports which did not pay much attention to night effects. Hope to see more regional airports in asia and japan from MFSG such as hiroshima, fukuoka, new chitose.
MFSG - ASAHIKAWA AIRPORT 2018 RJEC FSX P3D FS2004

Was looking around for medium size regional airport in japan an asia.. saw the airports from MFSG and undecided for months to purchase as airports pictures did not appear very good.. but is pleasantly surprised by Kushiro and Asahikawa. Both are value for money with reasonably good day and night effect. Hope to see airports airports like hiroshima, fukuoka someday.

Great add-on with lot of functions, but is FPS killer. P3D v4.4 with GTX 1070 Turbo 8GB FPS is low in VC around 10-12, in spot 15-17. Sad thing.
TAXI2GATE - MMMX MEXICO CITY XTREME FSX
HECTOR ALEJANDRO RODRIGUEZ DE ALBA
All around as real as it gets! But when you make the NBD Plaza turns to the left to catch the 05L or 05R runways vector, the MMMX is visible but the runways don´t look as real at it gets, only a dark mash specially at dusk and at nigth the runways lights are very poor. I hope you can upload a patch in order to fix that. Thanks.
