A T-38 Talon would be neato. Steam or glass.

I had the 732 in FSX/P3D. Not my best buy ever :   poor interior texturing , a cockpit  which had two options, either a pigsty or sterile, wobbling along VOR radials and weird behaviours in flight specially in high altitude crosswinds (pilot's incompetence or poor FDE ?) . So if it is 732 I hope for a product remade from the ground up.

But who is going to buy a 732 anyway ? A couple of nerds ?

Maybe me and a few other old fogey types that flew on them a lot!  

Britannia, Orion Aiways, Air Europe, British Airways and British Airtours, Monarch, Dan-Air, Caledonian. Good times and mucho nostalgia!  :biggrin: 

I even flew on an Air France one once and got upgraded to a first class meal when a pack of newspapers fell on me out of the overhead, and a Lufthansa one into Gatwick with just me and five other people on it.  Took off like a rocket.  I loved them.

However, if it was as bad as you say and this was carried over to MSFS, I would struggle to buy it, but most developers do improve them now.  The expectations on the standards have changed.

In any case Milviz has improved quite a bit over the last years (personal feeling). I am sure that their 732 would be much better but as we say in French chat échaudé craint l'eau froide 😄 (the scalded cat fears the cold water).  

The 732 would be nice, a BAC 1-11 or a Viscount too. Fond memories from Dave Maltby's. Yes Virginia, there was a life before MSFS 😁

I hope it’s an announcement that an aircraft is about to be released rather than another in development.

The B737-200 is the one I’m most looking forward to.

I doubt that the SR 71 is ready so I would bet the money for an Otter or... or ... or... lets have a dream... YES a Talon. 

I'm going to buy it!

FYI, if any of you happen to have some spare time in Atlanta, GA .. specifically at KATL .. there is a Delta Airlines museum on the property, and in that museum is a retired, but fully functional full motion Level D simulator of a 737-200.  It was an actual simulator used for pilot training back in the day, now its part of the museum.  A as member of the public, you can rent it for an hour, get a little training, and see how well your MSFS sim time prepares you for something closer to reality. I did it.. and well.. the passengers wouldn't have been happy ...  but I did manage to land us in one piece.

After that experience I'd happily buy Blackbird's offering to relive the experience and practice a bit more with the older instrumentation to possibly do better if I find myself with another opportunity at the full motion sim.

BTW, the museum itself is really great - you get to wander around up close and personal with a DC-8, 767, 747, and several other older planes.

Well, it's a T6 Texan II. So add that to Blackbird's perpetual development queue I guess.

Says coming soon.  But that could mean anything I suppose.  My expectations on 'soon' would be in the next couple of months, or at least before end of year.
