I downloaded a MSFS King Air B200 by Chuck Dome and Mario Coelho. This appears in a text file in the package: "I hereby declare this aircraft package to be in the Public Domain. Anyone may use it for any nonviolent purpose, including commerce, without permission. It should not harm your computer but, if you imagine it has, I accept no liability." So I guess that we are free to use that model. I tried to contact the authors, just to be on the safe side, but I haven't gotten any reply. I've started work on this model: http://home.tiscali.no/rvovesen/king_air_ext.jpg http://home.tiscali.no/rvovesen/king_air_cockpit.jpg -- Roy Vegard Ovesen _______________________________________________ Flightgear-devel mailing list [EMAIL PROTECTED] http://mail.flightgear.org/mailman/listinfo/flightgear-devel
