There are still a lot of ATP's around but mostly freighters now. A few

Was the 146 guy Peter Leadbetter or Matthias Lieberecht?

It's interesting how names fade from the scene. Mention of ATP reminds me of the aircraft of that name. Whilst it was being flown by Manx I recall downloading a payware panel for it. Quite good for its time. There was another for the 146, both being designed by a cheshire based ATP pilot whose name escapes me. Can anyone remember? I haven't seen his name for years. I'll try a trawl through Avsim.

Can't help here.

I still have originals of all my FS software going back to FS4 and all
the various add-ons. Anyone remember Microsoft Caribbean? Then there
was the excellent Mallard scenery releases and adventures - Tahiti,
Hawaii, Japan, Grand Canyon, Scenery Enhancement Editor, Aircraft and
Adventure Factory (from which I made my first FS4 aircraft - a Hawker
Hart) and Flight 685 and Rescue 911.

From Sub Logic came the superb Flight Assignment ATP which started the
whole VA business off in the first place. The very first VA was called
Sun Air which was exclusively for ATP and they kicked off in 1994 on
CompuServe's FSFORUM. Noble Air formed in July 1994 and was the third
VA to start. Sub Logic also made FS4 software and I doubt anyone will
forget the Western Europe Scenery disc, California Scenery set, Great
Britain Scenery set or the Hawaiian Odyssey disk with its surreal
tunnels, giant kitchens, piano's and sideways Meigs scenery.

I must burn all these onto CD in case the floppies deteriorate.

Sorry but no combat sims. Hate the things.

   Hi Gents!

   Was wondering if anyone has a spare copy of Microsoft Combat
   Flight Simulator (The original) I have been searching for my copy
   for weeks but to no avail, think I may have lent it to someone and
   never got it back.

   Given the massive turd that is CFS3, and I'm bored of flying
   Zero's in CFSII I would really like a copy. Game no longer stock
   it and from previous experience copys on eBay are normally
   scratched beyond use.

   Anyone have on they'd be willing to let me have, more than willing
   to pay all costs!

   I know its a long shot but I figured it'd be worth it!

   All the best,
