You've got my money...

...now you're getting the praise!

Wonderful! I flew it straight out of the box and really enjoyed it. OK, I said quite often she's ugly - and I mean it (well personal tastes are strange things, aren't they?) but I never said I didn't want her - it was just that the FS9 version came out too late - I was "X-comitted"

It has been worth the wait - very much so. This joins the planes I will keep installed, of that there is no doubt. It performs incredibly well!

Kudos all round! Worth the 25 €

Cool screens ! :) Add some gray alpha-channel to external textures, IMHO it will looks nice with some reflection.

Landing light - it's mdl, not sure you can change it, but try, Safir's one done exactly by SDK, nothing special.
