Pro N3N USCG "Yellow Peril"
The Coast Guard acquired four of the trainers from the Navy
beginning in December, 1940 by trading four Grumman JF-2 "Ducks."
The primary reason for the trade was an effort by the Coast
Guard to expedite pilot training, which was expanding during
this time in anticipation of war. The new trainers were given
the tail numbers V193-V196. At least one was assigned to station
operations at the Coast Guard air station at St. Petersburg,
FL, from 8 March 1934 to 31 August 1944. This model features
full moving parts 32bit textures, and Dynamic Virtual Cockpit.

Restored Me 262 A-1a Warbird:
This aircraft is simply the original FS98/CFS1 (& hense
will not work in FS2004) aircraft of Jan Dec 1998 by Bernd Drefahl
with gauges by Stefan Geissler converted in the FS2002 editor
for flying in FS2002. Original FS98 files included for designer
acknowlegement. This package does not modify any of the original
files, it simply uses the converted files from the editor. Fly
the original v6 Prototype with FS98 panel. Fly the v6 Prototype
or "Screemin Meemie" with my updated flyers panel which for
convience employs a simple FS2002 autopilot based on FS2000
Concorde components (not included). Test flights provided. Packaged

Grumman F3F-2 shipboard fighter.
The F3F-3 "flying barrel" shipboard fighter, was an extremely
strong aircraft, faster and more manoeuvrable than its predecessors.
It handled superbly, snap rolled with exacting precision, and
could three point with any power setting or loading condition.
Its pilots considered it the ultimate biplane. At the beginning
of WW2, there were still 140 Grumman F2F and F3F fighters serving
the U.S. Navy as fighter pilot trainers. The last Grumman biplane
fighter was to remain in service until late in November 1943.
Original model by Paul Clawson. Adapted to CFS2/FS2002 with
new model, air and Dp files with textures for 3 planes by A.F.Scrub.

Dambuster Anniversary Flight: Fly my restored Dambuster Lancaster
(Type 464) warbird to the Ruhr Valley and replicate the 1943
attack on the Moehne and Eder Dams. This aircraft is the original
FS98/CFS1 aircraft of January 2000 by Keith Clifford (Lanc15.zip)
as was used in my CFS1 DB Tribute but now converted for flying
in FS2002. The panel update to modern FS2002 instruments still
uses Roger Lowery's RAF662 B1 Lancaster bitmap as ammended
for my CFS1 Dambuster Tribute of Jan 2004. The original Lancaster
files are included for designer acknowlegement and have been
the source files for the conversion in the FS2002 editor.
Dams scenery provided with 3 flights. I wonder if you can
qualify as a 617 Squadron Lancaster pilot, flight engineer,
navigator and bomb aimer or be rejected as not being good
enough? Packaged by Ross McLennan. FILE NAME: Dambust3.zip
FILES FOR FS2004: Although not fully compatible with FS2004
the aircraft flys extremely well. These files simply allow
the generation of a FS2004 aircraft folder with new files
that take advantage of the htm format so that you have full
briefings, checklists and reference documents which otherwise
are ineffective. A scenery update is provided to take into
account the differences in FS2004. The aircraft file has been
revised to make use of the option to "drop" the weapon and
fly 9250lbs lighter. Packaged by Ross McLennan. FILE NAME:

French Corsair F4U-7. The
model depicts a French F4U-7 from Flotille 15.F, as flown
in Egypt from the "Arromanches" and "Lafayette" with the typical
yellow stripes used during the Suez crisis in 1956. The F4U-7
was exclusively made for the French Marine. A total of 94
planes was produced between 1952 and 1953. France used F4U-7
in Indochina, Suez and Algeria. Original mdl by Guy HULIN.

wing update below
AU-1 The AU-1 was a dedicated low-level attack version of
the F4U. It was powered by a R-2800-83WA with a single-stage
supercharger and water injection, that delivered 2800hp at
sea level. More armour was added for the pilot and the engine.
Gross weight rose to almost 10 ton.Performance had, of course,
decreased. The AU-1 was rather unpleasant to fly, but it was
a terrible ground attack plane. Only 111 were built between
February and October 1952. You get 2 models. One grey one
flown in 1957 and a blue one flown in Korea by the "Death
Rattlers". Original mdl by Guy HULIN. Adapted with permission

Merlin Powered Dambuster Lancaster AJN:
This aircraft is not compatible with FS2004 and is specific
to FS2002 unless an update package is provided for FS2004. A
specific aircraft.cfg file written specifically to reflect Rolls
Royce Merlin Series XX engine sizes (+16 max boost) and then
hand tuned to meet the Lancaster spec. Available boost reduces
with altitude. The aircraft again uses the original Keith Clifford
Lanc151 airfile unmodified, together with an updated panel layout
the widescreen version of Roger Lowery's RAF662 Lancaster cockpit
art. The resulting sim aircraft can be flown realistically in
FS2002 flight plans fully achieving flight times and fuel consumption.

JU52 Retro Restore Project Pt 1 of 2:
A project to fly the FS2004 v6 Junkers JU52 (with wheels) in
FS2002. Retro-Restoration from FS2004 back to FS2002 is under
license from the JU52 Factory, Managing Director: Pierino Primavesi.
Thank you Mr Primavesi for your very liberal approach allowing
others to change and modify the factory product provided the
outcome remains freeware. The factory v6 FS2004 JU52 aircraft
are the best since CFs2 and FS2002 flyers have, until now, missed
out. You can fly directly from the FS2004 v6 virtual cockpit
in FS2002 without returning to the 2D panel to change settings
or look at the GPS map. Fly to a FS2002 flight plan for time
and fuel consumtion, day or night. Instructions, documentation,
and test flights provided. This part only activates v6 D-ANOY
using a version 3 panel with no GPS and a fly and hold autopilot.

Spitfire Mk XI:
The Mk XI was a reconnaissance aircraft based on a combination
of features from the marks VII, VIII and IX. The PR.Mk.XI variant,
the last one of the Spitfires with Merlin engine, was the most
important allied reconnaissance airplane on the European front,
being used by the RAF and the USAF, flying missions alone and
unarmed at distant objectives as far as Berlin. Spit Mk XI nr
EN 409, flown by Squadron Leader Martindale, reached 606 mph
(Mach 0.89) in a 45 degree dive on 27 April 1944. Complete aircraft
