UKMIL Bae HAWK RED ARROWS

Has a great self-installing program but I can't find the download anywhere. Where it asks for main FSX Directory I type Microsoft Flight Simulator X. Is the wrong input? Program says the Hawk is installed.

I can't be certain about this particular one as I don't have it. However, UKMIL aircraft (regardless of the aircraft manufacturer in real life) are often found under UKMIL in the menu.

If you want to know for sure, run the installer again, but this time when you're asked to specify the directory, navigate to your desk-top instead and create a New Folder. Have the installer target the New Folder and continue with the installation.
Once done, you'll find the complete aircraft in this New Folder that you've just created.
Go into the Aircraft Folder (it's likely that there is also an Effects Folder and 'possibly' others but it's the Aircraft Folder that we're after) keep opening it until you find the aircraft.cfg file. Open this file with 'Notepad'.

A few lines from the top you'll find something similar to this:

ui_manufacturer=UKMIL/MDI

In the above example, ....=UKMIL --I would be looking for 'UKMIL' in my menu when I want to load the aircraft.

If instead it says, ...=Bae HAWK --you would look for 'Bae HAWK' in your menu when you want to load the aircraft.

If now you can find the aircraft, you can delete the 'New Folder' you just created with all of its contents. If not, just install the aircraft manually, it's always the safest option anyway.

Many thanks. Red Arrow up and running but instuments and effects aren't. Have tried dragging folders but haven't got it yet.

Thnx so much. I'm not sure how to do that but the read me file just says "welcome, it's a full Gmax model, read the included pdf file (which I can't open) for full instructions and copywright info." I appreciate your trying to help. Best regards, Bruce Holloway

If you have Adobe Acrobat installed it should open the .PDF file. When you open the readme.txt file in notepad (or whatever it opens in) go to EDIT then Select all, then click on Copy. Then create a reply here and then do push the CTRL key and V key together. That'll place the contents of the readme.txt file in the message then post the reply as normal.

Mind telling us how, where did you get the aircraft?

Sure! It's right here under Military Aircraft about 14 planes down the list. The mistake I was making was trying to drag the instrument and effects folders into the airplane folder instead of individual files. Only the airplane goes there (Sim Objects now). I'm brand new at this but click and drag the the instrument and effects folders off the downloaded airplane package and onto one side of your desk top. Open the main FSX package of folders and down size the screen. Double click on the instrument folder and downsize that screen so that the screens are side-by-side. Double click both instrument folders then simply drag each individual file into the instrument files then do the same thing with the effects folder. It works!!! e-mail me if I confused you. It would be good to return some of the help I was given. callbruce@shaw.ca. I sure hope I didn't give you any bad advise here.
