    This would be cool, provided it matches the specs of the real airplane. Heck do we even have images of the cockpit and avionics layout?

    Btw, what the heck are they selling here ???.....

    I think there is enough online now to get a general start on basic pre-production layout, however some of the vids they purposely didn't show the main display like this cool 360:

    I doubt most of the in-depth virtual mission systems like the T-346 and T-45 have will be represented.

    That's from a real T-7A simulator.

    Just a Windows 12 computer with wings, engine and integrated joystick. Nothing to see here. Move on.

    What's wrong with the Hawk ?....

    Well, those are development prototypes, so maybe that's why they're discounted?

    Did a little digging...

    Thanks Tom, that clears it up alright. What on earth have these scammers in mind putting up something like this. Complete madness. They don't even know what the're talking about. Boeing-Saab T-7 Red Hawk Wikipedia.... Pffffffff...

    Btw, must say i think this brand new jet trainer has a certain 'cuteness' about it. I saw a photo with another aircraft next to it, i didn't expect it to be that relatively 'big' neither...It looks very small but it isn't. First time for me hearing about it and seeing it (is it a sign of the times that i hear about it first thru WIP shots of an MSFS model ??...(thank you, Noddy!)). Boeing and Saab, hmmmm.... something quite unexpected too... So yeah, quite the mystery plane to me ! Maybe that's why these scamidiots call it 'the Wikipedia'

    The biggest thing I like about this new trainer is that production units will have red tails in honor of the Tuskegee Airmen.

    Love the T-7, but thanks for the heads up Tom. One of the things I find really interesting about it is that much of it will be built at my Alma Mater. Which will be great for the engineering students there, to be able to go over and see how planes are built.

    Not a sterling moment in the history of the USA.

    Red Tails is a great movie for aviation fans. CGI, but some really exciting P-40/P-51 footage and does a decent job telling the story given the limitations of a 2-hour movie.

    Hopefully, they'll have a paint kit. So we, and by we I mean Jan and Zsolt, can paint them like aggressors. Since these are supposed to eventually replace many of the F-5s currently being used as aggressor aircraft.

    Jan,

    Here's bit of "VIP"/"Tuskegee Airmen" trivia for you.

    The first Tuskegee Airmen movie that came out was the one for HBO. ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Tuskegee_Airmen ). It was released in 1995 and starred Laurence Fishburne. It was excellent. The music for that movie was composed by legendary Hollywood composer Lee Holdridge. Lee was also the musical genius behind much of John Denver's work at one time.

    Now here's where it gets personal. When we were creating and marketing the original VIP CDs (before the publishers got involved), when your work was well and truly part of those collections, I received a customer email one day from a man called Lee Holdridge. I thought I knew that name so I asked if he was in any way related to the famous composed. His answer was, "Yes it's me Kenneth."

    Lee and I stayed in touch on and off for a while. He was an aviation nut, and really did enjoy our early VIP work, and was very possibly doing so when he composed the music for that movie.

    So, my friend..... When you think of the history, you may now also associate the movie, and some beautiful music. AND luxuriate in the possibility that your VIP work was being enjoyed by the composer at the time of that music being written.

    - Kenneth

    What an interesting story. I grew up in the South during the Jim Crow era. I remember well the "Whites Only" water fountains and waiting rooms. I can only imagine the discrimination these men when through, just to fight for their own country. A country that, for the most part, didn't want them.

    On a side note: I was interested in Chemistry as a kid. I read a book about George Washington Carver who among other things invented Peanut Butter. He lived and taught at Tuskegee Institute, now University. In part because of him, I later enrolled in Chem. Engineering and finished with a degree in Chemistry at college.

    Wow! Amazing story, Ken ! Thanks a lot for sharing !

    Earlier i was looking for a DVD of the Tuskegee Airmen movie and noticed there are even several. It does look it has been released atleast on DVD under different names,"The Tuskegee Airmen" and "Red Tails" but i suppose it's the same film. The thing is though that i am watching it right now on my most favourite streaming service HBO (a.o. because of one of my fav comedy series Larry David's "Curb Your Enthusiasm" ;-) but i will buy one of the DVD's anyway. I do like the movie so far and have prepared myself for some cringeworthy and over embarrassing moments, not to say downright disgraceful. Sofar it's only the PT-17 just yet and certainly great to see it's the real thing with believable sound so that's pretty promising for when they get to meet their red tailed wild horses. Looking forward to that !

    I see quite a few books about the Tuskegee airmen turn up at my fav dvd/book shop too including e-books and spoken so i'm all set to finally get to the bottom of the famous Tuskegee Airmen story. I knew about them of course, even did a Red Tail P-51 model in my younger days but it's great to finally learn the whole story.

    I will of course take special notice of the music now, Ken. I have always thought that music in a movie is sort of a 'easy way out' to get people in the mood. A truly fantastic movie doesn't need music and i have seen several. On the other hand, f.i. the music by Ennio Moriccone in Sergio Leone's spaghetti westerns is of course something else, as is the music in Jaws and 2001 A Space Odyssey to name but a few. Anyway, haven't heard much music yet but i'll keep my eyes and ears open. ( i was maybe a little dissapointed with the opening shot of the movie. A moving camera thru a grain field and i wouldn't be the least surprised if it would end up at a young boy playing with a model aeroplane and then a real biplane would come zooming in.... and so it did ;-) (reminiscing the Great Waldo Pepper...;-) Ok, it's Hollywood, who cares.

    So thanks very much again for enlightening me about the Tuskegee movie and its music composer Lee Holdridge, Ken. A truly wonderful story !

    Btw, are you by any chance in contact with other members of the VIP Group ? I truly loved the work of Eric Mitchell and Pierre Ardichvilli to name but a few. I learned a lot from these gentlemen and wouldn't mind to know how the're doing in this rather tumultuous 21 century atm.

    Cheers,
    Jan

    Actually Carver did not invent peanut butter, it was already invented as a food for diabetics and other medical conditions prior to his publications on peanuts.

    Oops! Thank you for the correction. I have been wrong all these years about the peanut butter. I thought I read that in a book about him.

    It is almost universal that people think that, which if you think about it is a shame since a remarkable man is know by most for something he had nothing to do with rather than his actual remarkable work.
