You need to have downloaded data/Models/Geometry/Nimitz/ from cvs, and you
need nimitz_demo.xml in data/Data/AI. You also need this in your preferences

        <enabled type="bool">true</enabled>

I think you will only see one carrier very close to KSFO. Mathias' code only
works for JBSim FDM models, so if you use a YASim model, like the Bo105, you
will fall through the deck.

Nimitz will sail right through the land right now - the AI isn't all it
might be! If you use Mathias' F/A-18 you will be able to catch a wire and
use the catapults. Very impressive it is too. There's quite a bit to do yet.
Mathias is working on extending the code to YASim, and I'm working on
providing a Projector Landing Sight for Nimitz. 

I hope you'll give it a go - we need some feedback.
