If only we have shared cockpits in IF! I imagine how casual pilots will try to fly one aircraft in different directions (look, it has two opposite engines 😂)

I will give this a vote because it looks so unusually!

Looks interesting, but I rather that they rework the other aircraft before adding new ones :)

Look, it is a half of TBM 😂

Thanks, but I think talk about reworks sound be on rework post only.

It’s an interesting bird and I’d love to see it appearing in IF but I’m not voting for it yet due to the fact that we have the XCub and Airbus A350 coming up. It’s still a great idea and I might vote for it soon!

Thanks once again but let’s keep this post only about the Adams, and not about reworked aircraft, if you like reworked aircraft please post about it on those post.

That plane looks cool but ugly at the same time lol
