Ray,
If your thoughts and Dale's info is correct then they will be on for delivery flights only. My guess is that they will not be doing delivery flights in game so I would ignore the RAF serials.

The Italian paints (92) are all done and dispatched to Giorgio for flight planning.

Before I start the RAF ones, I spent some time today adding an attached afterburner in the model for use in P3D. It works fine in P3Dv4, but I don't have P3Dv5 to test with. Is there a volunteer please with V5 that could do a simple test for me please? I'll provide a Typhoon, test AFCAD and single aircraft flight plan, so all you will need to do is install those bits and observe.

John

You can pass it over to me, John. Gives me a good reason to boot the FlightSim Computer again.
Cheers,
Martin

These days - yes, Steve. Way to many hours of work, and when I come home, I hardly ever fire up a computer. Family and music serves me better.
Cheers,
Martin

The gathering of info for the RAF flightplans is going well for RAF Coningsby, seems a good mix of single & multiple aircraft flights. It doesn't seem like too many use the ranges as 95% go & play out at sea, they're on nights this week as well & I'm getting some good info. I'm still playing with the idea of multiple weeks on the fp's but they will be on request only. I'll do standard 1 week flightplans for the main release, these probably won't include any night flights.

As for Lossiemouth that is proving more problematic, looking on radar I've never seen any Typhoons from Lossie out. Callsigns I can find but numbers that go with are looking like guesswork at the moment.

I would include some night flights Dan if you could please. I'd like users to see the slime lights functional occasionally. Also the lighting at night in P3D is quite striking:

Lossie runway is getting refurbished at the mo, that is why you're not seeing anything. Due back later in the year I believe.

John:

Roger that, I'll include some night flights then, no problems. Also I presume you're doing the QRA jets? I have serials for the last 2 that performed the latest QRA (last week) if that helps. I may create a separate afcad for them to use at CGY unless someone else already has one done for the scenery done by Ian McCartney. Also on the night flights I've noticed that a couple of Falcon 20's operate out of CGY as well playing over the north sea with the Typhoons so I'll do some fp's for those as well

Jim:

That would explain everything, I'll see if I can dig something up from the months previous to the runway being done. I can probably make an estimated guess with them to be honest

Thanks Dan. Yes indeed, I have a Qfit model with 4 SRAAMs + 4 AMRAAMs and no intake covers.

I'm just setting up to start painting the RAF aircraft.

Sweet, the 2 Coningsby serials used were ZK302 & ZK308

Good morning all,

I am following the development of this Eurofighter project with interest.
It looks like it'll be a pretty full pack again, with a ton of variations, paints, and sceneries.

I am pleasantly surprised by the spirit of solidarity that there is between John and all the other designers (whether for the paints, for the flight plans, for the sceneries, etc.).

I would like to congratulate you all, and thank you for that (and thank you again for continuing to develop for FS9, because we are still a lot to fly with this version).

Thank you, and good continuation in your work.

well after spending a few hours trolling the WWW. i have tracked down 65 confirmed airframes with picture proof lol.
these are 47 F2 and 18 T3, and it seems almost all 10sq wear their unit badge on the tail where as 3sq only a couple of T3's (4) and
F2 (5) do. perhaps thats why Scrambled egg lists the blank ones as 10sq ??? anyway the Saudi package will be 65 airframes and not 72 i cant find the last 6 (1 written off).

I see what you mean about the Scramble listing. The one thing that I do know about the Saudi serial numbers is that all include the sqn number. For example '1024' will be for 10 Sqn whilst the next one delivered was '3012 for 3 sqn.

So I would say that 1001-1024 for 10 Sqn. I am not subscribed but I checked that there was a '324' so 3 Sqn must have 301-324. Finally 8001-8024 to 80 Sqn.

Hope this helps.
Steve
