-Animations
-Complete Texture Mapping
-Sounds

Do you have the .ac model used for the release? I could do FDM work with it.

You should incorporate data from http://jsbsim.sourceforge.net/NASA_CR-96008.pdf for the FDM.

Edit: never mind. I mistook the DC-9 for the DC-8. :oops:

I've got the FDM under control (YASim). Just haven't been able to give it a flight test because of a very annoying error.

No disk error on FG?
That`s really wierd. But about the DC-9 now. It does look awesome.
And when it`s released, who knows, maybe I will do another circumnavigation with it.

At long last, we have an Alpha release ready!

Notes :
- The CDU is designed to work in GIT. If you are not using GIT, then the CDU is little more than a decoration.
- Animations still need improving, most notably the gear retract animation.
- The AutoPilot hasn't been worked on at all, so don't expect it to work.

I'll try it out sometime tomorrow. I don't really care that much for the DC-9 (inb4 AA blasts me for not liking the DC-9 :lol: :wink: ) but I'll give it a shot.
Sorry if I'm still not 100% active, I've just been busy with other things... college namely.

*ties QU404 to a stake and plants the stake in the ground behind one of the DC-9's JT8Ds* So, you were saying? :lol:

Is there any suspicious output in that black command line window?
