Bloch MB-220 "Air France" (FSX)


Recommended Posts

The French built Bloch MB-220 was introduced in 1938 and the last ones were retired in 1950. 17 were built and they were a kind of a French DC-2 design. They were used by Air France and during the war by the Air Force. At least 5 survived the war. It's a "simple" FS-9 plane but I like to post it, because I saw what was left of the fuselage of one at Nimes airport in the 70's.

Here's a short flight from St. Yan to Aix-les-Bains.

I tried everything, used every kind of FSX prop textures I have, nothing changed. Curious indeed.


I tried a couple of prop.bmps that I had in my back pocket. Most made a change. The best one I found was close to a 3-bladed blur but not quite. It came from my B-36 Peacemaker.

You sure do dig up a lot of interesting old prop birds Jan. A fine flight in this one and you have captured it beautifully. :cool: :cool: :D


I've tried moving a lot of my prop fleet into FSX and have experienced the same problems with prop textures. I've also invested a lot of time customizing panels in FS9 only to find that a number of older gauges don't work in FSX. While work is being done to convert some FS9 Retro scenery to FSX, it will be a long time before it will be worth my time to use FSX.
