Delivery of my ride for this years' GAAR: Douglas A-26 Invader 'Fire Eater'. After the making of the movie Allways, stored and gathering dust in the back of an old hangar at Ephrata, WA. So now at Cairns waiting to be assembled and test flown.
YPMP. The trouble with a slow aeroplane is that it gets dark by the time you arrive. Single pilot, windscreen strut right in the middle. Curved approach into a black hole.
Peter, assuming you are flying Dave Garwood's FS9 Rapide, there is a patch by Jim Robinson (dh89a_ap.zip on flightsim.com) which you may find very useful. It adds a (splendidly antique) fully functional autopilot, NAV1 radio and VOR/glideslope head to the 2D panel. Additionally, a new "gauge" has been installed that toggles the windshield center frame from view, greatly improving visibility on final approach.
