Hi Guys, Just in time for the weekend I have just uploaded the first of probably many updates to Golden Wings. There is a laundry list of things added or fixed in the readme. Not mentioned is a last minute addition of Croydon air field in London by Gary Burns, Thanks Gary! The file is about 13megs and is at:
From Vincennes near Paris (France) I wish to express my gratitude for this very wonderful work. Thanks for this first update. Many thanks, Lynn, Bill and all the "Golden Wings Gang Members" Sincerely yours, Alain

Bill just a thought - whilst these extra sceneries i.e. Croydon & Hawkinge are trully excellent and I don't want to detract from all work that has gone into them -I can see the logic in working on the background improvements to GW3 i.e. ai aircraft, removing airfields not there ect, AFCAD work, but am thinking should scenery additions, like airfields, be better to be supplied as add-on downloads to the basic GW3 package rather than an integral part of it, then people can choose to add them or not?
Bill and Lynn, I'm glad to see you two back. I d/l'd the update but the notes talk of putting my default flight in the Golden Wings flight folder, as discussed "the the documents." What documents, Bill? And which file is my default flight? I want to make sure I do this right. Bob
Bill/Gary, the update is great!! GW3 was excellent as it was and already there is an update with better and newer features. It installed just fine and I have been flying around in it for the past two hours or so with no problems.
Ed is right - the Ground Fog and the Smoke themes are a welcomed addition - they look splendid - especially around Seattle or any port for that matter - and no more cranes.
A continued thank you -
One of these nights I'm going to get some sleep - - -
…it’s great being a kid again – without the glue! ;D

Thanks Guys! Glad you are having fun with the update Thanks to all who contributed to this first update! As we have said, it will never be done so there will be more to come in the future Have a good golden age weekend, Bill
Appreciate all the hard work and effort that's gone into this Bill and Lynn, and thanks also to the other contributers too. The only thing that prevents this from effectively being a whole new sim are the constraints of the Fs9 architecture! However what a boon it is that MS left it open architecture.
