McDonnell Aircraft's F3H Demon was the firm's first swept-wing jet fighter. The aircraft was conceived in 1949 as the XF3H-1, with the first flight taking place in 1951. Unfortunately, the original Westinghouse J40 engine was extremely unreliable, leading to the loss of several aircraft and pilots. Despite the faulty powerplant, McDonnell set an unofficial time-to-climb record in 1955 of 10,000 feet in 71 seconds in an F3H-1N. In 1953, the Demon was refitted with the more powerful and reliable Allison J71 engine. This powerplant substantially boosted the plane’s performance. In 1956, the F3H-2N Demon was approved as a front line fighter with the U.S. Navy. In service, the Demon performed well, although it was still somewhat underpowered. However, it was a sturdy, stable platform under all flying conditions. The last of 522 Demons were delivered in 1959 and were not retired until 1964.

Finally thank you for taking the time and effort for making a highly detailed scenery for Myanmar. If you could also do Mandalay that would be a great plus too thank you!
TURBINE SOUND STUDIOS - PIPER CUB CONTINENTAL 65 SOUNDPACK FSX
Allan
This is a well-crafted array of the sounds that the (very) old Continental 65hp engine - mounted in any number of very old airplanes from the era before or during World War II. That includes the old Piper J-3 Cub, of course, but also many Taylorcraft planes of the era, especially including the L-4 Grasshopper, which was manufactured more by Taylorcraft than by Piper, and the BC-12D, the side-by-side 2 passenger aircraft of the same period. For anybody who learned to fly on these very economical airplanes in the sixties or even seventies, the MSFS simulations of these old aircraft are far more evocative of the actual feel of these planes with the authentic sounds, than without. To feel that the Cessna 152 engine is close enough is to miss the whole experience - of Ceconite-covere-
d wings, tenuous, unreliable engines with nowhere-nearly--
enough power (that's why we called them "gutless wonders". In the simulations of the J3 and the L4, they have the wire-stuck-in-a-
-cork-float fuel gauge, extending up through the hole drilled through the gas cap (about 6 inches in front of the canopy glass). Once you hear the sounds, you will understand what an iffy proposition is was to fly these old aircraft, and why all of us who did are very fortunate if we are alive still today. Thank-
s, SimMarket, for putting these sounds together for us. It must have been fun!

I do not mind airport interior modelling, in fact I like it quite a bit IF it can be seen when being out at parked aircraft. This scenery however has put way too much emphasis on the interior while neglecting the rest of the airport. The main terminal building is superb, no question about it. However, detail elsewhere is rather scarce and sterile looking in places, and there are plenty of flat objects visible on the aerial imagery all around the airport. Modelling capacity should have been used there instead of areas inside the terminal building invisible from parked aircraft. Also I wish developers would stop doing these low-quality red markings on aprons which are extremely oversaturated to a point where they look sterile and artificial. -
3 solid stars for the good modelling effort on the terminal! Though I want to point out that the rest of the airport is important too.

Great sounds and flight model, and the detailing is phenomenal. The Merlin engine looks amazing when you remove the cover and the EFB is a nice touch as well.

Excellent aircraft, especially love the liveries they all look fantastic. Highly recommend this addon if you are into the old warbirds, cool features like removing the cowling and gun bay covers shows a lot of time was put into this plane. Great job iniBuilds!

The airport itself, the textures and even the brand new expansion area are all stunning! AI traffic is working fine, except a few ground vehicles going into the runways. For now, 1 missing star for the following reasons: - Various objects here and there are missing (fences in various parts of the airport, rocks around coasts, little bushes implementation, ILS antennas, Glidescopes, radars, guard lights,...); i also did notice a few buildings type were missing too; - The tire marking does need a little fixing too in some areas, especially at the beginning of the runways; - Overall performances are good around the entire airport, but things are not well optimized only when going closer to the main terminal (the issue could be caused by the animated train inside, or some of the jetways); - Jetways for the Emiri terminal are missing; - A Doha skyline implementation would be appreciated as well! I will change my stars rating to 5/5 if any of this is going to be fixed/improved. Btw, i will say it again. Congratulations-
, nice work! Looking forward for an update! :)

Plane looks and sounds good. Behaves well during taxiing, take off, flight and landing. I did find this plane a joy to fly and recommend it.
