Air Bus with Clamshell thrust reversers?

Postby Zaphod » Mon Sep 03, 2018 12:15 pm

Hi All.
Title says it all really.
I'm sure I used to have a small airbus with Clam shell thrust reversers. It may have been in FS9 but I'm sure there must be one in FSX but so far I haven't been able to find one. Of coarse I have to download and install every candidate to be sure.

Any help appreciated.

Zaphod.

Just tried 2 version. Any Project Airbus Airbus A318/319/320/321 seem to have this and isn't that known as clamshell reversers?

Thanks Cevans.

Exactly what I was after. Now for some extra textures.

Cheers.

I could be wrong but I think you will only find these kind of reverse's on what I call a normal jet engine that is not a turbo fan as they use the split nacelle method
the difference between the two engines is obvious your older jet engines have solid nacelles where a turbo fan has a opening in the nacelle right behind the first fan. These are designed this way so that bird strikes will go out the opening and not through the actual engine . 8-)
