    Great shots, Larry! I have never flown on one, but it looks noisy?

    An interesting series and narrative.

    Love the old 4 engine turboprops -IL-18, L188, and CL-144. Hope some of those classics show up in or get ported from FSX to FS2020!

    Thanks James & David. Bob, it is noisy but is a good flyer. Brun I do use Fs2004 ATC. Bill I'm sure there will be many port overs. it'll just take time. Then I might try 2020.
