Adrian,Thanks for your prompt reply.What I'm looking for are sounds that I can add to a Gloster Javelin that I have installed in FS9. It uses the default Learjet45 sounds, which are definitely not suitable.I'll try the Avon sounds from the Hunter. I'm sure they'll be better than the Learjet. From memory, didn't the Javelin have twin Sapphires?I worked on an RAF squadron in 1960 which had Javelins, and next door was a squadron of Hawker Hunters. I could tell the difference immediately, even in my sleep. The Javelin had a banshee howl which was completely individual. One of our aircraft had reheat as well.Alphasim has a payware Javelin which does sound good, but I don't want to buy anything at present.David Hanstater

The extra power won the day for the Sapphire which was the only engine fitted to the production machines.UnQuoteBest and Warm RegardsAdrian Wainer

Adrian,The Avon sounds are a real improvement on the Learjet. The sound doesn't really match the screaming howl of the javelin, but it sure sounds like a military jet, and it's acceptable, especially in spot view.Thanks again.David Hanstater
