Downloaded, after your posting, and just tried; Belfast City to Blackpool, with 
Ronaldsway t&g thrown in. Flies beautifully and looks stunningly realistic. 
After the 
Blackpool landing, in rain and low cloud, I did a 5 minute replay. Sitting 
behind, listening 
to the Tays and drooling over the model, was very enjoyable. The scale speed 
perfect and the line of CEGB pylons, appearing out of the haze, brought the 
to life. Watching the taxi in, you'd be pushed not to think it was real.
 Thanks for the lead. I downloaded this morning but took a couple of hours 
the displaced panel.
