No, it's not the Flysimware nor Alabeo versions, just the freeware shakey jake, hence the functional VC, but the polished metal looks great! It seems to fly OK too, but then again I'm far from an expert! A quick VFR jaunt over the Easter weekend.

Hope it wasn't as wet and windy for your flight as it was this weekend lol. I was in Blackpool on Saturday and Sunday, and it was blowing a proper gale there, although to be fair, I did see a little private plane flying around there on Saturday afternoon, so it was definitely possible to take off and land in spite of the weather.

Strange, it didn't feel that bad in the sim! I use FSOpen Clouds which uses real world METARS, yet the sim didn't show any rain. I forget the windspeeds, but the 195 wasn't being chucked about.This was on Saturday too. I flew down the west coast to Caernarfon Airport, late afternoon.

Well it certainly was very windy on Saturday, my girlfriend Fiona and I, were sat in the bar at the end of the pier having a beer and watching seagulls remaining stationary in the air as they nosed into the wind, so I reckon it was at least 30 mph down at sea level, presumably more than that up high. Unusually too that day - since it was out at sea - there were two lenticular clouds when you looked out to the west, so there must have been some pretty serious windshear out there to be forming those without any terrain upwind of them; I was explaining to Fifi how they formed and how you could use them for gaining altitude in a glider on the upwind side of them and how you don't want to be downwind of them since they'll cause a downdraft that can outstrip your maximum rate of climb, since I'm going to be teaching her how to fly a glider later this year. :cool:

Anyway, that's a very pretty aeroplane, especially for a freebie.
