• Freeware Focus: Ford Tri-Motor Project

    Then there is Manchukuo (China), with seven airfields...

    If you fancy something more fictional...how about a Swiss airfield buried within a mountain?

    Another fun scenery is one featuring jumps and ramps...

    There are 86 additional sceneries that can be found on the site. There are also extra AI aircraft for all sceneries.

    The scenery is a mixture of fact, fiction and fun renditions - the heart of the Ford Tri-Motor Project Concept - keeping history alive and interesting.

    All of the above, is just a very small taste of what this amazing site has to offer, with all of it generously given free for FS2004.

    A bonus are the five pages of over 400 puzzles that are fun to relax with, in between flights.

    Exploring this fascinating site really helped rekindled my enthusiasm with this hobby; so much so, that I even have a separate install of all of The Ford Tri-Motor Project's scenery and aircraft.

    Many thanks to Edward Moore, who has kept this site alive after Garry passed on.

      Interesting article. Far too many simmers are obsessed with things like wingflex, autoland, tweaking config files, etc. Freeing yourself from this and simply flying can improve immersion whatever sim you use. However I think that FS9 does represent a sweet spot in the development of the MSFS series so it’s a good sim to settle on if you don’t need the latest and greatest addons. And of course there is some excellent and well developed freeware to use with it.

      I have almost all of Garry's scenery installed and love them. As a super fan to the Ford Garry really put the FUN back into simming for me.

    Hi All. I fly the current versions of P3Dv4, Aerofly FS2 and X-Plane 11. My problem is the very generic (unreal) scenery in XP-11. I know that there...
