Here's my version of an F-35A Air Force Joint Strike Fighter for FS2002.
It doesn't look like much, but it flies pretty cool. To install, simply
unzip the ZIP file into the main subfolder of FS2002 (where the FS2002.EXE
file resides). In that way, the custom gauges will be placed automatically
in the correct subfolder. DO NOT unzip the package into the \AIRCRAFT
subfolder of FS2002, and be sure to duplicate the original folder structure
when unzipping.

REFLECTIVE TEXTURES: To display reflective textures, you need to go into
the Options/Settings/Display/Aircraft menu and check the box marked
"Reflections." Keep in mind that this will probably result in a significant
reduction in frame rate. If the box is not checked, the aircraft will
display normal, non-reflective textures.

Also keep in mind that, apparently, not all video cards will display
reflective textures. My ATI 9000 and ATI 7500 display them just fine. None
of my NVIDIA or 3DFX cards seem capable of displaying them, however.

NOTE: Some joysticks and yokes seem to have trouble with the automatic
elevator trim. If you experience "porpoising" of the aircraft, especially
with the autopilot on, try turning off the auto trim. This is accomplished
by clicking the small green bar-shaped light above the trim indicator.

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.
