Thunder City (http://www.thundercity.co.za/tc_faq.htm)

Website for the South African guy you mentioned. He's turned them into a business selling flights. He not only has a Lightning (T10 trainer IIRC) but he also has a Hawker Hunter and a Bucaneer.

Those pics reminds me of the old days when we had no internet yet (can you imagine?)
In the 70's I wrote letters to all the major aircraft manufacturers and asked them if they had info and pics for me. Almost everyone responded in those days!
Saab, Dassault, Lockheed, MDD and BAe where one of them. I still have all those letters and photo's (some specially printed) somewhere.

as a present, one of my aunts gave me a subscribtion to a NASA news leter back in 77" and for the next 3 years they would send me tons of top quality pictures and documents at least twice a year. they would even send me big books in color on stuff like how NASA used the wind tunels to test their new concept in space vehicle-the space shuttle

Those are mostly 60s planes, even one or two dating from the 50s. I am Not_Whining(tm) but being 50s - 60s just makes them better.

You can fly the StrikeFighter's 3rd Party Lightning -- kinda -- using some other cockpit. Mirage has a real pit though. The new Wings Over Europe coming soon should have Hunter cockpit out-of-box. If so, Hunter cockpit will go down as one of the greatest advances in flight sims of all time, instead of yet another F-16 Su-27 SuperJetFighter "mfd" cockpit or whatever its called.

Nice reactions guys...ooh and indeed they are '50/'60's planes but these pics were taken in the '70's (color pics were still rare I think http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif).

The Lightning sure was a beast http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/784.gif

However, there seems to be a 3d-issiue with the a/c in SFP: the rudder of my plane doesn't move in the yaw-axis, but in the pitch axis http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/53.gif


Well, other nice thingies are the whole buch of Mirages, the Phantoms and of course the Zippers.


BTW, what about that one:

IIRC,that picture of Sea Harrier was from the Falkland War,wasn't it?

Well, it actually is a RAF Harrier GR. 3, but the GR. 3 saw combat in the Falklands-War. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Just posted today at the ThirdWire for the upcoming Wings Over Europe....

This is a stunning *new* advance in out-of-box combat flight sim development (along with Pe-2 etc...) !!

ah thanks for the correction.I always get confused between the various types of Harriers http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif

Well, the Harrier indeed is kinda confusing:

GR.1 = AV-8A = AV-8C = AV-8S http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif
GR.3
FRS.1
FRS.2
GR.5
GR.7 = AV-8B = "Harrier II"
Harrier II Plus

Ah, but does anybody know what SNEB stands for? [the GR.3 in the pic is shooting SNEB rockets]

Anyway, there's nothing like the Lightning. ZU-BEX is my current desktop wallpaper, and a sight for sore eyes she is too!

The BAe Lightning was a really cool bird. AFAIK it's ROC was first outmatched by the F-15.

I dont think anything has actually matched it, someone has a whole load of specs on it round here (cant remember who http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/disagree.gif) but im sure it said it was either never matched, or if it was, only by one plane (possibly F15).

It has one hell of a Climb rate, i almost got too excited just reading the specs and lookin at a picture simultaneously http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Well, it was sureley matched by that infamous "P-42" (a specially stripped Su-27 prototype).

@ Viper: I'm sure they initially wanted to call them "FNEB" but that was too obvious for the russians tu suspect a roXx0rz ├╝ber-weapon http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/59.gif



BTW: the F-14, F-15, F-16 and F-18 are also "70's" planes... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/heart.gif

That is very impressive.

I always said, developer ignorance of cloud and weather modelling is the greatest failure of combat flight sims.

In fact, all combat flight sims are equivalent to infantry or tank sims without trees, without houses, without hills -- just barren flat "ground" for the ground combat environment.
