Let me know below on what you think. Should this aircraft be added or not?
Happy Landings!

Really neat and well thought out but sadly it’s a duplicate,

And since it has a substantial amount of votes and since the last reply was only 14 days ago.

Totally fine happens to the best of us don’t worry about it a mod will close it soon.

Is it possible for a mod to merge that one into this one? This has more facts and stuff.

I do not believe it is possible

The other one’s title makes it hard to search. I’ll fix it a bit.


I just feel so sad that I wasted to much time on this ):

Yea, this happens all the time to me too. I look around, post then find out it a duplicate… You’re good tho, no worries! :slight_smile:
