A320, A380, EMB-190, MD-80, Learjet 55, Cessna 150, CL-144, 747SP & 737-600 released!
Yes indeed, the aardvarks have been busy! Today we're pleased to release more AI planes than anyone has a right to receive in a single day. There won't be any paintkits released for these planes because paintkits won't be needed! We've painted every single airline livery that has been used by any of these aircraft in the last 30 years. Even the Cessnas! There have been 3 aardvarks living off stale pizza and soft drinks for the last 48 hours while uploading all these models and repaints to flightsim and avsim.
Now the bad news. Unfortunately there was a power surge at Aardvark World Headquarters Ltd. LLC, and the hard drive containing the source files for all these models was fried beyond recognition. We had a choice between purchasing a surge protector or 4 large pizzas with the works, and in retrospect it appears our judgement may have been unduly affected by hunger. Ah well, these things happen! At least we got the files uploaded before the hard drive gave up the ghost. As long as avsim and flightsim don't both manage to lose the files we've uploaded (and what's the chance of that happening?) all is well.
We were going to post pics of all the models and repaints, but unfortunately all those files were zapped when the drive bit the dust. Only one pic remains intact, that of the final 737 in the NG series, the 737-600:
|Quoting TrijetFan1 (Thread starter):|
I was wondering since I really like the Ai aardavrk aircraft, I was wondering if they ever had plans to make airbus and MD-80's? Whenever I download flightplans that contain A340/330's, I just replace them with 747's or whatever is availible.
