Great stuff. It's things like this that brought me back to simming. Thanks to the late Garry, and to Ed, for continuing the project for another year.

We all owe a great debt to all the designers/painters for giving us such great addons.

Goodly morning Rich...

I was just thinking about why I had Deleted the Jenny off FSX.

I believe it was either a Default or Downloaded from a site, definitely not the one you have.

Could not get the simulated Jenny to operate not much higher than the STALL SPEED...was a real Dog... :lol:

Both Grandfathers, my Dad and several other Family Members flew the aircraft but I have only sat in one.

I flew the DeHavilland of Canada Tiger Moth...another wonderful aeroplane... ;)

I'm no expert but so far I haven't had any problems she will fly straight and at just under half throttle, with plenty of power to climb. I tend to stick to around 1000/1500 feet, seems more suitable for this vintage era. She's a bit flighty in a slight wind and can be a bit awkward on take off. As I said I not too skilled but overall I like it, I would add that my realism settings are medium with G Force and rudder help switched off.

HTH

Thanks for reminding me about that amazing scenery!
I had installed it but couldn't remember what it was called and therefore couldn't find it ........ :D

I love the optical effect, Rich!

A scenic effect I often use in my You-Tube Motorcycle uploads to illustrate some of my Motorcycle rides in the 1940's and 1950's.....
....when the World was black and white, and sepia!

Lovely shots!

Thanks again for the comments, must admit that I like the sepia treatment on this type of shot. It's amazing how we still think of the time before the 40's was in B/W. :?
