1,000,000 Downloads

Saturday, August 3rd 2019 at 0549Z, another milestone was recorded in the history book of MAIW. At that precise moment, the one millionth file was downloaded from our Download Hangar!

When our "hangar" went online in August 2015 we could never have imagined how popular this file library would become. Already eight months later we celebrated the one hundredth download and now we are at one million, an unbelievable achievement for a small, freeware website running entirely on the goodwill of its community. There would be no better opportunity to thank every member who has contributed content to our hobby, or supported us by donating a small amount of money. Without you, we wouldn't be where we are today.

Download 1,000,000 was the file "Repaint Lockheed C-130T - United States Navy (JYAI)" by Brent Newman and John Young and this was not by chance. Brent and John are two of our biggest contributors and honoured members of the MAIW Developers Team. Together they have uploaded 407 files thus far, or one quarter of the entire library!

Here's a little screenshot from our hangar's backend, taken right after the one millionth download last Saturday.

On to another million with this fantastic community. Thank you!
