Library files
Most X-plane users will already know that many freeware airport designers make use of the freeware library files to enhance their creations. Consequently, it’s important to read the documentation within each file to find out which libraries have been used. These library files need to be installed in order to experience these airports as the authors intended.

Convair Model 7002 XF-92A7
In this issue we feature another aircraft from the prolific design team led by Milton Shupe. It’s an experimental delta wing model made by Convair – a division of General Dynamics. Designated the XF-92A, it proved reasonably easy to fly and land, was quite stable in the transonic region and was virtually stall proof.

However, it didn’t have enough thrust for supersonic flight but managed to exceed Mach 1 in a dive on one occasion with test pilot Pete Everest at the controls. Although the aircraft was underpowered from the beginning, it successfully demonstrated the delta wing technology that became the basis for Convair’s winning proposal in the USAF’s 1954 Interceptor competition with the F-102 Delta Dagger.

The aircraft presented here comes with four different liveries and an almost fully functional virtual cockpit. It’s another superb design that reinforces the fine quality from this team: Milton Shupe, Rick Mackintosh, Brian Alexson, Scott Thomas, Hans-Joerg Naegele, Jan Rosenberg, Nigel Richards, the pilot figure is by Jan Visser and tyre textures by Mike Kelly.
