the lights are some airports u dont see until u get closer i have noticed. not sure whats up with that.

FSX - 747 Problem.

FSX Sounds

I noticed there isnt many custom sounds for engines like there was for FS9...... is that becuz no one has made many of them or is that becuz we can use the FS9 custom sounds in fsx in the same way we installed it to the fs9 aircrafts within the folders?
