this is a comment i have seen today and moved into news...seems many people back at this website and working on new aircrafts...(i should too as in past...but i do not have time actually )..here the drzook comments and news:
I was pretty excited when I came across this site. I had always been a fan of aircraft from this time period. The Spanish Civil War was a turning point in military aircraft development. It started with biplanes and sesquiplanes that could barely crack 160 mph and ended with sleek monoplane fighters that could easily do over twice that. It was a time when people of many nations came together to fight for what they felt was right, be it socialist or nationalist. It was a testing ground for some of the most technical aircraft built at that time, while it was also the last gasp of certain aircraft types far past obsolescence. My current project is working on the .air file for the Dewoitine 371 and 372. I got most of the flight parameters down but it still has a nasty tendency to putt down the runway on startup. I am also working on a FS2002 to CFS2 conversion of a Loire 46 fighter (the original .air file was from a Nordyn Norseman--lot of work involved getting this one right). Anyways it's nice to know there are others out there like me. :)
PS-I'm not that great a pilot--I prefer to tinker with the airplanes more than flying; although there is a certain joy in blowing the wings off a Chirri with a NiD-52..."
