RE: Ask A Funeral Director/embalmer A Question

Back to the Pope -

Pardon the crudeness, but if he hasn't been embalmed doesn't it stand to reason that the body began to stink in the last 6 days? What would they have done to lessen the odor?

FS9 / Ultimate Traffic - Callsign Question

I've been noticing in other post that AI aircraft show their flight's ATC callsign (i.e. Speedbird 888). I can't figure out how to get this to display. I can only get the aircraft's tail number to show up. Where do I make this selection?

Thanks
