They had. But when I requested some info several years ago they were ready to send it for 500 euros.
Yes, they told me a 1998 Cargo OAG would cost me about the same. I never called back.
People randomly offer financial compensation for completing projects, for those you guys reading this who want the retro world bad enough to spend good money aide the ongoing projects with information instead of offers for cash. A 1998 Cargo OAG, 1989 Cargo OAG, or even a 1990-1997 Cargo OAG really, would produce a lot of flightplans and encourge paints on the new models as well.

You know,flying in those days was a bit of an adventure that I for one miss.My first flight was in a HP Hermes a modified Hastings back in 1957. Lost an engine on take off from Luqa Malta,thanks it had three more.I say my most enjoyable one was the Canadair Merlin powered Argonaut. There is nothing like the pilot announcing well chaps the airfield is down ther with Germany covered in cloud.We have to land as we havnt the fuel to go back.R.A.F comet.

Now,the Airspeed Ambassador was a lovely aircraft,they had the tail drop off of one.On the ground.When I was at El Adem with grass(Marham) we had a B52 flew from the States on instruments and it flew straight down the main runway!

Superb effort Chris on probably the best turboprop airliner to ever enter service.
We had quite a few of them in Australia flying for the major domestic operators at the time ie. Ansett, TAA, East-West, Airlines of New South Wales, Airlines of South Australia, and MacRobertson Miller Airline. The F-27 was flying in Australian skies until 2011 when the last of them was retired.
Here's a link to the South Australian Aviation's Museum site of a PDF which gives a brief history of this iconic aircraft in Australian service: "http://www.saam.org.au/wp-content/uploads/2014/12/SAAM-Profiles-FOKKER-F27-FRIENDSHIP.pdf"
FSX Retro Flyer: About the Let-410 of Uganda Airlines, I also couldn't find a picture of it, but I presume that it had same cheatlines and colors of the previously used Fokker 27.

chasensfo: I do know of pics of the Zambian Express ATR, but it is a little complicated for me, going to leave that to other people. I haven't painted a Let 410 yet, also something I have no plans on doing anytime soon. Sorry. Might do the Air Ivorie Fokkers, though

Just snooping around: There's a small texture issue with MikeBlaze's recent Qantas 767s, the registrations on the right side are mirrored and are thus backwards.

chasensfo: You should let him know in his thread or via PM then

FSX Retro Flyer: Actually Michael Pearson in AVSIM released repaints for the FAIB 767-200 & -300 for Qantas recently and Saudia repaints, including the FAIB 747-400

FSX Retro Flyer: Thanks for the LAPA release and Dinar update but, where are the paints of Dinar's fleet? The pastes are still empty just like the first time I downloaded it.

darrenvox: Hi guys wassup

theflyingmobian: Any chance of Ansett New Zealand making it into the 1998 project? They were still active around that time.
Jun 5, 2021 23:32:31 GMT -5
FSX Retro Flyer: Well, Ansett Australia is already included but in the Incomplete Airlines folder. About Ansett New Zealand, they may add and work with it in a near future.
Jun 9, 2021 21:12:50 GMT -5
chasensfo: Ansett is in progress, but so are like 30 other airlines so we'll see when it's done. Should be this year, maybe this summer.
Jun 10, 2021 16:04:30 GMT -5
chasensfo: Actually whoops, Ansett NZ isn't even in the schedule I bought LOL so it'll be a while until someone is willing to go into the OAG to do it. Large airlines from the OAG vs a schedule take WAY longer, so hopefully Miggy wants to follow up with Ansett NZ...
Jun 10, 2021 16:05:52 GMT -5
theflyingmobian: Ansett Australia's 767-200 was my first ever time on a plane so I'm looking forward to having them in my FSX world alongside Ansett NZ if that ever makes it in.
Jun 11, 2021 0:13:34 GMT -5
chasensfo: Yes, I am very excited for them too, but don't have the time to take them on myself sadly. Miggy does a great job, talked to him today he's still actively working on it
Jun 11, 2021 2:29:09 GMT -5
theflyingmobian: The 747-300/400s. 767-200/300s, 727s and 737-300s all have HD paints over on AVSIM for FAIB and AIA models, There's also a Kendall SAAB 340 on there assuming it's part of the flight plans.
Jun 11, 2021 4:09:30 GMT -5
chasensfo: Yes the regionals will be included, and yes the whole 1999 fleet is done (they joined Star Alliance in 1999 and that fleet has the logo lol)
Jun 11, 2021 12:27:57 GMT -5
theflyingmobian: Damn you're on top of this lol
Jun 11, 2021 19:08:35 GMT -5
chasensfo: People usually reach out to me when they paint late 90s fleets and ask about flightplans
Jun 12, 2021 8:01:49 GMT -5
FSX Retro Flyer: Here are my huge and humble thanks to Michael Pearson for creating these magnificent paints for the post-CAAC Chinese airlines!
Jun 16, 2021 11:24:16 GMT -5
chasensfo: Hell yeah, and soon the 1990s airports of China will all be open for business
