The Thorp T18, a vintage '60's homebuilt, ahead of its time. Redline 200mph with 180hp - not a bad way to cross-country. It's at SOH.

Reason for edit: added "Thorp" to title

Come on Ian "Air combat, Military aircraft, Big and small (not to small that might be classed as GA) Bombers, WW2 military aircraft, fighter jets, Aircraft Carriers.
Geeezz Why doesn't someone just shoot him down and bring him back to the real world of civil aviation with GA aircraft (yes the good old Piper Cub) a bit of Bush flying, Transport aircraft Passenger and Cargo etc. tongue.gif laugh.gif

Quite a "signature" really - I can definitely see the Fletcher in the T18!

@Dave - did you sort out your Saitek drivers? I have the x32 versions if you need them.

Yeah it is a great piece of freeware which requires a bit more concentration to fly and damn fast for a small plane.....I posted some pics a few days back but it didnt interest anyone then ..maybe it was the pics..here's some better ones...

Would love to see a NZ repaint (unfortunately 2 of about 6 T-18s in NZ have had fatal crashes)..ZK-EDF has been around since the mid 70s and was one of the first all metal homebuilts in NZ
