The F-105's were my favorite to work on!
There is just 'something' in that generation of jets. Too bad I've only seen them in museums.

IMO The Century Series jets were the most beautiful combat jets to ever fly. At least the coolest looking. Still had some that romance of flight in their designs. While we were stationed at Patrick AFB, we were lucky enough to see the Thunderbirds do one of their rare routines in the 105's.

There is something properly 'experimental' in the airplanes of the era. :)

I grew up during this era being practically raised by a fighter squadron. The transition from the early jets I was exposed to (F84G-F94C-F86A- and of course the venerable T-Bird) into the F100- F105 era was an interesting time to be alive and involved in aviation.
These planes had issues for sure and it was a learning process for everybody. It was both a time of learning and a time of pain. Many of the pilots I knew as a young man were sacrificed along the road to progress, some were quite close to me as friends.
But I wouldn't have traded my experiences as a boy and young man exposed to this life for anything or any amount of money. These planes were in my world and the pilots who flew them were part of my extended family.
Much of what later would become a part of my tenure as a pilot began as I climbed all over these planes and shared my youth with the pilots who flew them.
It was a wonderful way to grow up and become a man!

Though I understand A2A's position, I sadly have bought my last A2A product, it's not the cost of upgrading to Prepar3d v4 or v5 or going to the MSFS 2020. It's the cost of a complete upgrade, motherboard, graphics card etc I have to look at being 73 and how many years would I continue, for me it plainly doesn't pencil out. But I do want to thank A2A for all the aircraft of theirs that will work in FSX. Party On

Yeah, let's all be thankful for what we have, as FSX had a nice library from A2A to play with still, regardless of if it receives new products or not.

I too want to thank A2A for the wonderful GA planes I've enjoyed (and enjoy) flying in FSX but I too have to drop out from purchasing any more A2A. I invested heavily in FSX in 2013 knowing it was mature with massive support, and used it as the basis for a complete home cockpit build (piper aztec and cherokee mainly), relying somewhat on FSUIPC to tie the many controllers, screens and panels together... and the investment in software runs into the thousands of pounds! Starting again with P3D or FS2020 is not an option, I don't think I could muster that feverish enthusiasm that took hold of me for three years while I built and perfected it! My harddrive is maxed out, the processor just about ticking over with the sim. I fly almost every day and love what I have with a great and undying passion. Good Luck A2A!

:D :D :) :D
