Folks, Bit of a long shot but I'd really like to have someone ID an aircraft from page 53 of PC Pilot Issue 52. Its the single prop aircraft in the top left of the page (with yellow markings and number 21 painted on it). I've seen these aircraft stationed in Corfu airport, where I think they may be coast guard patrol planes. Ideally I'd love to have a FSX model for them, with a good VC. Thanks

The plane is a Air Tractor AT-802, used for crop spraying and the like. Hope this helps

Hi again The aircraft is on AVSIM but is a download for FS 2004. I don't run FSX but I think that some aircraft are compatible with it. I suppose you could try to use it in FSX if you are feeling brave enough. Are FS2004 aircraft compatible with FSX? - Yes, you should be able to fly FS2004 aircraft in FSX. However, some add-on aircraft may cause problems with certain gauges, modules or other additional software. Some payware developers released or will release updates in order to make their products compatible with FSX. Freeware developers may do the same if nessecery, but since it is their hobby and not their job, some might choose to move on with the development of new aircraft for FSX only and keep their current products for FS2004 only. Please check the aircraft list for information about the compatibility of various aircraft. File Description: The AT-802 series is the world's largest single engine aircraft, and its popularity reflects the industry's trend to larger high-production turbine equipment. Whether it's used for fertilizing forests, spraying huge cotton fields, or spraying dispersant on oil spills, this plane has the productivity and performance to get big jobs done efficiently. Reflecting state-of-the-art technology in computerized fire gate controls, the AT-802F is an ideal initial attack fire fighter with the ability to get to fires quickly and the maneuverability to put them out accurately and efficiently. The reliability of the turbine engine, low maintenance and operating costs, ruggedness and safety features make it an excellent choice for fire fighting. This Flightsim Aircraft features Dynamic shine, reflective textures, full moving parts, custom 2D panel, working VC and a repaint kit.
