That's Mathias' work ... mostly. It's a great aircraft. Flies very well and
is ideal for carrier landings. One of my favorites!

Because it's not (yet) GPL compatible and, thus, must not get re-distributed.
Mathias has done most of it anyway and is about to replace the last traces
of the borrowed original work from anonymous. I guess and hope it'll will be
available on the fgfs homepage, or even in cvs.

No.  :-)
