okie dokie - I think I Solved my own problem,,, hopewfully

just had to make the Text more readable, and Space the sentences apart to be ,more readable, so I could get to the important parts !

it was all crammed together hard to read.

*** The Convair F 106 A Delta Dart has been compiled for Microsoft Flight Simulator X acceleration.


It will work well in Lockheed Martin Prepar3D ( compiled using P3D SDK )but requires the FA-18 to be installed also ( gauge and sounds )


This is my impression of that incredible aircraft and may not be accurate.


A number of liberties have been taken with things like gauges, switches and general layout, to suit not only FSX but also myself.


The FSX radar has been incorporated into the tactical display and the controls for this will appear by pressing Shift/4.


The intercept scope initially displays the FA-18 hud but by pressing the green button, marked RADAR, all the buttons to control it will be shown.( controls are the same as FA-18 but in a different order )


The missile bay doors are controlled by the redundant flap key and the AIM-4’s and the optical gunsight in front of the cockpit will show.


The braking chute is controlled by the spoiler key/


The external fuel tanks can be removed by pressing a knob on the R/H instrument panel.


The yoke can be removed, to get a better view of the radar, by pressing the knob to the right of the tactical radar display.


The smoke effect "fx_Sea_Venom_Smoke" goes into the main effects folder and the droppable AIM-1 goes into the SimObjects, Misc folder.


The landing speed of the real thing was “eye wateringly” high! It needs a LOT of runway!


The approach was made at around 200kts with the airbrake open, keep an eye on the angle of attack ribbon, far left of the vertical gauges, keep it out of the red.


The acceleration from a standstill is good but a speed of 165kts is required before it gets airborne.


Once in the air you need to throttle back to 45% power or you’ll be supersonic in the blink of an eye.


The F 106, without the weight of external tanks, could climb at an astonishing 52,000ft a minute.


To this day It still holds the jet aircraft single engine speed record at 1,525.93mph achieved on the 15th December 1959.


Although this model has been made to the very best of my ability its shortcomings will be evident,There are many systems and functions that are way beyond my
understanding and expertise and have not been modelled, if you like it I would love to hear from you, if, on the other hand you do not, please keep it to yourself..***

Think I have all the files right where there supposed to go,,,, all except that 1 - Save Game file, which I take as some kinda mission if ya want that , as an option ???

I ended up putting the F-106 Traffic BGL File in the World Scenery folder with the rest of the traffic BGL's,,,, ????

is that right ????? ( me Dunno' - but I tink I did right ?? )

Awsum FREEWARE Aircrafts tho,,, WOW !

I have to give this fella lots of credit for his work. I would like to see more in the future but I wonder how much free stuff he can afford to donate. Eye candy and smooth frame rates rarely work hand in hand unless a person has the very best processors and over 16 gig of memory. I did try using a flash drive for caching but even those ran into overheating issues. :think:

I have several of his jets including the de Havilland Sea Vampire and Sea Venom, Supermarine Attacker FB2, Armstrong Whitworth Meteor NF11, NF14, Gloster Meteor Mk 8 and PR Mk10. They are all very, very well done and great to fly. I've done a lot of "traps" aboard the Ark Royal and Victorious with the Sea Venom. What an absolute blast! You all have to try his stuff out for yourselves.

Now if I could just get him to do a tail dragger AEW version of the Shack... :pray:
