What do I press to get firefox to reload a page completely? I went to the downloads page and hit all the keys I thought did it and nothing. I had to end up using IE to download them.

Captains-This is going to be a VERY short- but very detailed update. ;-)I have just made available from our DOWNLOADS page the Operating Manuals for the PMDG MD-11, 75-or-so free liveries for you to download.The PMDG MD-11 is in its final test round, and we believe that we have the release version in hand at long last!Currently we are targeting the PMDG MD-11 release for Monday, as we still have a few more technical details to wrap up for the software release.We are very excited to get this product into your hands and have you up and flying.PLEASE take this time to read through the PMDG MD-11 INTRODUCTION document that is provided in the documents file, as this document will provide you with a significant amount of information on how the PMDG MD-11 software is operated. This simulation has different mouse icons than you are used to seeing, and different panel controlsfor the 2D cockpit.We've included plenty of options to allow you to customize the simulation to suite your tastes, and we've given you some great panel states to help you get a realistic start to your flight.So read that document thoroughly NOW before you become distracted by the software!(We have a tutorial coming for you as well... Probably tomorrow... and it will be included in the software release.)Okay- we're almost there!

Just out of curiosity, will there be a trip fuel calculator for the MD-11 so that we can calculate the required fuel fairly accurately and will there also be a performance file for FSBuild?

Not really needed. The MCDU WEIGHT INIT page will do all the calculations for you. You can try different values of block fuel, enter taxi, and reserve and it will add these to the FMS estimated trip and alternate fuel and give you the final fuel/time. >Just out of curiosity, will there be a trip fuel calculator>for the MD-11 so that we can calculate the required fuel>fairly accurately and will there also be a performance file>for FSBuild?

>Hi, I am sure it isnt needed at all but i was curious to the>ability it has it reject loading will it also reject dumping>via th efs fuel menu as well?>I am sure it will never get used anyway just curious abou it.Eric, Michael was responding to Matt's question right before yours. :)When you say reject dumping, do you mean if you loaded too much fuel, and needed to take some out? If so, you can just use the same PMDG fuel menu you would use to load fuel. Just enter the lower fuel amount, apply it, and away you go.Sorry if I'm not understanding you here.

While the MD11 system certainly makes fuel planners ALMOST redundant, the FMS fuel figure will only be accurate IFF wind data is entered. So on those looong hauls where you don't enter the wind data until the cruise phase, the fuel prediction will be off.Now if we could have the MD11 read the Activesky data and extract the wind information, the fuel planner would be totally redundant (wink wink, nudge nudge) :DPaul

No what i mean is the manual for the MD-11 says it will reject any fuel you try to load using the FSX fuel and payload menu. Since it will reject it will it also disable you from removing fuel from that menu as well?P.S. I have got to get the plane so i can use the Sabena livery I know it so look sperfect but cant se just yet:)Thank YouCapt.

I assume the liverys are not compatible with the FS9 version, so there's no point for us FS9'ers downloading those?

Very very very true, I have skimmed threw each before going back to the introduction manual. I can say I am in love and will be using the tutorial and AOA video once I get it to enjoy a long time of flying the FS2Crew will make a fine addition to the plane I am sure As soon as it is out I am getting it. You guys and yes I know I have said it already, But "YOU GUYS ROCK" I have not given any thought to the Repaint kit wont do much good with out the plane but I will be very busy for a while now. Just reading the manual tells a lot as to why it takes so much time to build this plane, you guys should be getting a few medals for this. :(Thank YouCapt.

Hi Eric,You can not use the fuel and payload (in Aircraft menu) from FSX itself. You have to use the fuel and payload system in PMDG menu, like for the B-744.PeterFlightsimulator is not a simulation, it's a way of life ....
