Greg

Thanks to you and the team for the amazing work you continue to do and to John for the C-130 specials. I not that Europe Region has also been updated with the new version. With regards the new RAF C-130's at Brize Norton, I note since this update i have lost all of the Voyager aircraft at Brize and do nut understand why. Is it because they share the same parking slots?

Thank you for the kind words :)

It's difficult to say why you lost the Voyagers, but I can assure you that Matrix didn't remove anything from your custom traffic, unless you made changes in the Matrix Europe folders.

The last update for Europe added the RAF C-130's and C-17's to Brize so it is possible that there's no parking left for the Voyagers, particularly since the traffic from Matrix is usually loaded before any custom traffic due to the add-on system it uses. Did you try another day of the week? Western airfields can be very crowded during weekends.

It may be that you do not have enough parking spots at Brize Norton for all the Aircraft to show up. The C-130's load into the sim before the Voyagers so they may have taken all the available spots. Are you using the Default Brize Norton airfield or have you installed an updated AFD/AFCAD/AFX. If you are using the default EGVN then I suggest you search Avsim for something that will give you more parking, or if you are familiar with Airport Design Editor just add some parking. There are sceneries available for FSX that can be updated to P3Dv4 standard without too much difficulty and Greg has produced a guide that is available in Briefings above.

Thanks Greg and Pete, I suspect it is the default parking that is the issue - I will look into the best solution to improve this

I just now realised that your Voyagers also came with Matrix, so forget what I said and listen to Pete. ;)
