Originally developed to fulfill the long-range maritime reconnaissance role, the Convair XP5Y-1 was noteworthy for its high-speed blended-hull design, intended to overcome the aerodynamic drag associated with flying boat hulls. Powered by four 5250 shp Allison XT-40-A-4 turboprops, it flew for the first time on April 18, 1950. Changes in USN requirements led to a redesign of the aircraft to the transport role. Re-designated R3Y Tradewind, 11 aircraft were built. Several modifications were incorporated into the new R3Y-1 including increased horsepower T-40-A-10 engines, new nacelles, shorter airscrew driveshafts and tailpipes, and V-shaped float struts. Convair later re-designed the nose and added a large hinged door at the bow. This new version was designated R3Y-2 and flew on October 22, 1954. A last attempt at salvaging the project resulted in a refuelling tanker conversion, but this was not enough to save the Tradewind. All were scrapped in 1959.

KUMARI SCENERY DEVELOPMENT - KATHMANDU LANDMARKS/HELIPADS VOL.1 MSFS
Amit
Needs more landmarks for the price. Two of the six custom models i.e. stupa and the dharara are available for free on flightsim.to though it may be slightly less detailed (haven't really compared thoroughly) th-
ree stars for the price since its quite expensive for only a few models, and an extra star for the effort. Would give more stars if it was updated with more landmarks in the future.

SIMBITWORLD - A PILOT'S LIFE - CHAPTER 2
Daniel
the immersion that this addon provides is fantastic. Congratulations-
! highly recommend Perh-
aps a single suggestion is related to the optimization of the program, maybe in the future it could be a little "faster", I feel that it is a bit slow to open some things. (but it does not interfere with the fantastic experience that this addon provides).

景。 Very, very good scenery. Digital Design will never disappoint me. The airport and surrounding environment are very real. A good scenery can remind people of their memories in this land in reality. This St. Petersburg airport has obviously done it. It is different from many other sceneries that render the environment very dark. It is very clear and realistic.
TABURET - EUROPE BIRDS MSFS
Michael
There are a lot of birds, that's great. However - lots of PINK-coloured birds in Germany? It would be a great help if the birds would somehow at least rudimentally correspond to the real-life bird population in the respective region...
