Confused as to how it's difficult.

There:
You log in, click Ticket, and submit a ticket that is guaranteed to be seen by one of the team members, and all correspondence is tracked in that ticket.

Here:
You log in, find the appropriate forum, click Start New Topic, and type out a post, hoping it will be seen, and hoping that any responses won't get buried by other questions/comments/etc. because there is no tracking at all.

Please explain your reasoning, if you wouldn't mind.

Hi.

The forum is not the problem , your pmdg web site is the one that needs looking at.

If i wish to submit a ticket , i should just need to hit product support and see a ticket button , then fill out my order number / email / product problem.

instead i was going around the houses trying to get help , that only served to frustrate me even more , and is not made clear enough that you need to log in  first.

Hi Alan,

In regards to your question about G-ASPA. A quick internet search reveals that it was originally purchased for Eagle Airways. Through several transfers of ownership, the aircraft became operated by Air Atlantique. At some point, Air Atlantique repainted the aircraft to the British Eagle livery. Photos indicate it made several air show appearances and other PR visits. It's probably appropriate to consider this a 'historical' or 'heritage' livery. I never thought much of it, being from the USA, but the issue prompted my search. For the FSX version of the DC-6 on the OC, the thumbnail has always been accurate for the aircraft (British Eagle) from my memory. It appears the aircraft is currently undergoing a full restoration/overhaul for fractional ownership.
