The generic model doesn't have a stinger Joe. That's the model that was intended for re-painting.

Well, that's it then. I used the model with the open doors. I haven't looked at the Italian's, yet.

Thanks, cheers !

First, thank you so very much for this new AI plane. It's a cool little plane.

Second while compiling the flightplans with AIFP (I renamed the flightplan) I got the following errors. I don't know a lot about flightplans so I am not sure if these are true errors or maybe a touch and go or something like that.

Flight Plan 2:
Leg 03: Departure time missing or invalid

Flight Plan 3:
Leg 01: Departure time missing or invalid

Flight Plan 4:
Leg 04: Departure time missing or invalid

Flight Plan 6:
Leg 05: Departure time missing or invalid

Flight Plan 30:
Leg 03: Departure time missing or invalid

Flight Plan 31:
Leg 03: Departure time missing or invalid

Joseph, I'm not so expert in using AIFP, but when I check the Avanti FP with it, I didn't get any error.
Should be useful to know to which aircraft number are referred the errors that you get.
I mean, Flight Plan 2, to which AC# is referred to?

Regards, Giorgio

Hi Maurizio,
You are correct it should have been DRAGO. I also found other Italian military callsigns in this list.
https://www.live-military-mode-s.eu/php ... .php?t=916
311 RSV also use PROVA, Gdf also use VOLPE, Guardia Costiera also use KOALA, Polizia use POLY.

Looking at the Flightplans.txt, nothing is wrong to me.
May be a "false positive"

The stinger is a HF/FM antenna. It is mounted on all Italian military aircraft and at least, on some civilian flying in Northern Europe and Africa.

Joseph,
I have double-checked the un-modified traffic bgl and can confirm that there are no errors.

I think that you have done something else other than rename the flightplans. My guess is that you used a replace option in a text editor and that has altered something that you did not intend to.
