I've tried again and, after spotting two pitfalls, succeeded.
First show stopper, on the Horizon site, was the acceptance of conditions box. I hadn't ticked it 'cos I hadn't seen it. Location is at the top of the page, rather than the more conventional spot near the bottom.
Having got beyond that point, to confirmation of order, I spotted why the cost was so high. The Horizon site seems to be set up with one of the USA sceneries, in which I've no interest, already in the basket!
Once spotted it was easy to delete it and get back to the more reasonable £73 ish.
Anyone placing an order should keep an eye on this, since I most certainly didn't opt to purchase the USA product.
All's well etc.

Something odd here!
I tried to order the set, from Visualflight. Having odered the full set, VAT and delivery were added, to bring it up to £90. Quite a bit higher than the discounted £70 listed and I have to wonder whether the number of business buyers justifies quoting prices ex VAT. It definitely misleads on price.
Anyway, the purchase fell through because it kept sending back my completed credit card details page, with the slots emptied and a request to fill in the missing details.
I don't need to buy it badly enough to waste time with a system like that.
One sale lost.
Just Flight have now released a demo of their photo sceneryfor FSX. General
comments from the Visual Flight users is that it's hopeless- nowhere near
the quality of the Horizon version. It is also moreexpensive at 100 quid
parter at 30.00for the 4 part DVD set.
Horizon are releasing their Generation X DVD set as a three
each or 70.00 if you buy the full set. If you really want todo the nice
thing buy the set through Mally's web site so he gets somerevenue from it -
Mally we would never have seen photo scenery in the first place. It's criminal that he's been totally sidelined for this FSX version.
