QUESTION,
why would Microsoft put planes on FS2004 such as the MD-80 but not make that plane one you can fly. As far as i know the only default jet planes on FS2004 the Learjet 45, B737, B747, and the B777.

Any Ideas??? 🙄

Watch for your conformation e-mail, it may go to your junk or deleted folder so check them before emptying them.
It can take up to 4 days depending on how busy they are.

I'm glad someone else has noticed this. Don't touch it, I think it's jinxed. Unless my memory fails me again - I once deleted this useless MD-83 folder, but as if by magic, after a freshh installation it was back in all it's glory.

BTW everything seems to be there except the panel folder. Further the sound cfg reads : [FLTSIM]
product_code=FSIM
alias=B737_400\sound

a bit unusual.

Well, it takes a lot more than just a regular ole' model to make a complete plane! A lot of flight dynamics, systems, and panel work, (not to mention the VC that microsoft puts in all their planes) go into one, and so that takes a lot more testing/design than they had time to do. It doesn't take nearly as much to set up an AI aircraft, which is probably why they went that route.

Forgive an old ignoramus - but are you suggesting that the MD-83 folder in question is supposed to be an AI aircraft?

Thanks'

Definitly. I used Ultimate Traffic for so long that I don't remember what planes the default simulator used, but as i recall it was the regular jets included, all the GA's, and the md80. It's gotta keep the model somewhere!

Don't get me wrong though, I wish they had done an MD80 as well! I've flown on those more than any other plane on my trips to and from Chicago!

Thanks for that, OG - it's starting to make sense now.

I just went through the aircraft folder and we have alphabetically:

dh_dash8_100

md_83

pa28_180

None of those three include a panel.

Cheers'
Rick 🙂
