Really great scenery, very detailed with lots of character and easy on the frames. Great winter textures also.Check out this sweet video by jaggyroad films, gives you a great idea about the scenery!

Donald,This scenery is worth way more than the 15 bucks it sells for. Go for it!My guess is that you could get the Duke in and out of there, with skill and the right winds.

The sounds are for Plum Island and are in the Avsin library. Reference file 2b2_snd-v12.zip. Very nice, thanks Joe.

Not much room to park my Mustang at Plum Island, and the guy who pulled in behind her with his conversion van probably wasn't very smart to do so.http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/193880.jpghttp://forums.avsim.net/user_files/193881.jpgI loaded her up with just 1,000 lbs of fuel, and with four souls aboard, that put our weight at 7,100 lbs. Winds were 210 for 4 knots, and though we'd have had more of a head wind departing on runway 28, I was concerned about obstacle clearance. Fifty foot trees off runway 28 or a four foot fence off runway 10...which would you choose?http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/193882.jpghttp://forums.avsim.net/user_files/193883.jpgDid we come out of there????http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/193884.jpgThe Mustang is just as comfortable at JFK...http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/193885.jpgBut we'll be flying back to Plum Island regularly for some of those THOUSAND dollar burgers.
