The McDonnell XF-85 Goblin parasite aircraft was developed to protect B-36 bombers flying beyond the range of conventional escort fighters. In theory, a B-36 penetrating enemy territory would carry its protecting fighter in the bomb bay. If attacked by enemy aircraft, the bomber would lower the Goblin on a trapeze and release it to combat the attackers. After the enemy had been driven away, the parasite fighter would return to the bomber, hook onto the trapeze, fold its wings, and be lifted back into the bomb bay. Although the XF-85 was successfully launched and retrieved from an EB-29B on several test flights but was never flown from a B-36. The test program was canceled in late 1949s when mid-air refueling of fighter aircraft for range extension began to show greater promise. This is and FSX Update of the XF-85 by Kazunori Ito. It features a new static VC and a 2D panel with now FSX compatible gauges. I also added lights including VC light as well as smoke effect and slightly changed the flight dynamics. Original model by Kazunori Ito, all updates and static VC by Michael Pook.

FSX native B-36 Peacemaker. Built by consolidated vultee (Convair) in the late forties, The Convair B-36 Peacemaker was the largest American bomber every produced. Development of the huge plane began in 1941. The Army Air Force wanted a bomber that could fly from the United States to Europe, drop bombs, then return. The prototype first flew on August 8, 1946. The first operational models were delivered to the Strategic Air Command 1948. Included in this file are versions, A, B, D, H, and J models. The A and B versions are textured in FS9 style polished metal textures. Includes a virtual cockpit based on the b-36b cockpit, with a few updated and modern instruments, and a full gauge panel on the engineer station. custom sounds taken from scenes in the movie "strategic air command."

This upgrade of the Plane-Design MkVII fs9 Just Jane Lancaster at East Kirkby to FSX was made possible by Jeff Lind of Sydney, Australia who had the xml skills and interest to build a working Flight Engineers Panel using all 6 Lancaster wing tanks. The documentation provides an insight into the full use of the Flight Engineers Panel. It is suggested simmers fly this aircraft in the same way as the previously uploaded BBMF Lancasters in Wide View Aspect. After all it is a precious aircraft that is treated with care in the real world so why not the sim? Additional guages and updates to existing Plane-Design gauges by Jeff Lind. Trim gauges by Ted Cook. Lancaster 2015 paint by Koos van Menen of The Netherlands with the original fs9 Plane-Design paint adjusted for FSX by Ross McLennan, Adelaide, South Australia. THIS UPLOAD MAY FUNCTION IN P3D (feedback will be gratefully accepted).

This is an update for FSX of the Seafire F46 by A. F. Scrub. I have added a trim gauge and a nav/GPS switch to the panel and centered the gun sight on the VC for the guns effects using the views section in the aircraft.cfg file. I changed the size and position of the GPS and made the radios bigger and easier to see. I corrected the contact points and the engine position, etc.; and updated the flight dynamics. I took out the off-set invisible drop tank that gave it a built in right turn. This update includes the under wing texture fix. Done in FSX, may not work in FS9.

This upgrade of my DB70 Part 3 BBMF Lancasters was made possible by Jeff Lind of Sydney, Australia who had the xml skills and interest to build a working Flight Engineers Panel using all 6 Lancaster wing tanks. The Lancasters (3) have been set up to simulate, as near as possible, the discusion I had with Flight Lieutenant Tim Dunlop, the BBMF Bomber Leader and Pilot of Lancaster "Thumper III" (KC-A), during a visit to Coningsby on Members Day 2015. The documentation provides an insight into how the BBMF Lancaster is flown in the modern day real world and I request simmers at least try to SIMULATE. Intended for FLYING in Wide View Aspect. Additional guages and updates to existing Plane-Design gauges by Jeff Lind. Trim gauges by Ted Cook. Lancaster paints by Koos van Menen of The Netherlands, UKMIL and an original fs9 Plane-Design paint adjusted for FSX. Concept by Ross McLennan. This upload WILL NOT function in P3D.

FSX/FS2004 Seafire F Mk 46 The Supermarine Seafire F.Mk.46 was the first version of the Griffon-powered Seafire to be truly suitable for service on aircraft carriers, featuring contra-rotating propellers that solved the handling problems caused by the torque problems introduced with the Griffon. The 24 aircraft that were produced had fixed wings.They were used for training and trials, before being withdrawn in 1951. This is a new model by A.F.Scrub. It is fully working in FS2004 and FSX.
