    Where in the World Feature 126

    The Where In The World series challenge from Ron Blehm continues. Last month's "sky harbor" proved an interesting challenge, with many being successful. This month is something different, a former military base that's not even normally open, except for a special fly-in event. Can you figure out where it is?

    Ratty's Ramblings - Getting Around

    Author Ian Radcliffe has been flightsimming for a long time -- since 1984 and FS2 on a Commodore 64. In an effort to give something back after all these years of enjoyment, Ian has offered a series of articles that will offer hints, insights and suggestions to enrich the flight simulator experience. Here he shares the most basic of VFR navigation skills, presents a bad case of distraction and as usual presents an interesting flight to share.

    Review: Just Flight - Mosquito FB Mk VI

    The De Havilland DH.98 Mosquito was one of the great planes to come out of Great Britain during WWII. Originally thought of as a bomber, the "Mossie" ended up serving in a variety of roles. Reviewer Dale Ashcroft found the experience to be "sensational", being fun to fly and particularly immersive when used with VR.

    Review: Aerosoft - Airport Ibiza XP

    X-Plane pilots, head to the party capital of Europe with Airport Ibiza XP from Aerosoft. The scenery brings the island to life, as as reviewer Robin Tannahill describes it, you can "feel the heat". Whether heading in on a big jet or taking a GA tour around the island he found it to be a good value.

    Review: Orbx 2W3 Swanson Airport for X-Plane 11

    2W3 Swanson Airport is a quaint and unique airfield with residents living in their houses on both sides of the runway, some of them with private hangars and aircraft. This is the sort of airport scenery that Orbx is known for. Reviewer Shawn Weigelt was extremely impressed with it, and found it ran smoothly on his mid-grade system.

    Review: SimWorks Studios - T-37B Tweet

He finds it to be an absolutely awesome simulator, with a perfect focus on details and a comprehensive and detailed flight model.
