Alphasim/Virtavia F-111 Panel v2.6.7. Updates for the Alphasim/Virtavia General Dynamics F111 Aardvark package. These updates include a better 3D appearance to the 2D and VC cockpits, a more accurate instrument layout and match between the 2D and VC cockpits, Attack Radar shows ground (airports) or air (AI aircraft) targets, added TFAS and AOB gauges, numerous panel graphic improvements, new fuel dump and burn effect, and an install program that supports both the Alphasim and Virtavia F-111 packages. This upgrade is for SP2 and Acceleration only. By Steve Hess.
For SP2 and Acceleration ONLY.
IMPORTANT! You must have the original Alphasim F-111 installed as this package uses gauges that can not be included with this package.
For any of the following steps if asked to overwrite files answer YES!
Click FSX_Alphasim_Virtavia_F111_Panel_Vx.x.x.exe and select the directory where you have install Microsoft Flight Simulator X.
NOTE: If you have any additional repaint textures for the ALPHA F-111 Aardvark you will need to copy the 111ckpit3_l.bmp and 111ckpit3_t.bmp files from one of the seven default texture folders to each of your added texture folders for the virtual cockpit to have the updated graphics and for the gauges to be in their correct places.
You will also have to add the texture data into the new aircraft.cfg file

Select an altitude above the ground you would like to fly.
Click the Terrain Follow indicator light above RADAR altimeter.
Click the autopilot altitude hold button ( autopilot must be engaged first ).
Note: The lower you are and the faster you go, the more likely you are to crash as this is a very basic TFR. It is fun to fly so give it a try!
Note: In the Settings/Display/Hardware tab the Global Max Texture Size must be set to HIGH or greater or the Virtual Cockpit will appear blurred.
