You are right about train and bridge, we are going at a high speed to a
broken bridge, and the canyon is very deep.
I don't understand, after longs and understandable mails i had with
we could continue to get FG releases with decrease of quality.
May be the development team is too proud to admit their errors, running
permanently out of the balance.
Sometime it is necessary to stop the engine and wait the bridge
That is exactly what i did when i removed my Crusader from CVS because i
could not offer to the community a full functional naval AC.
