Peter started this site in January this year and therefore is primarily responsible for bringing us all together. Peter also won one of flightsim.com's prestigious awards for a popular upload which has a 'moving' story behind it
Peter is working on a comprehensive Metro Manila scenery for FS2000 that should fit nicely around Jeffrey's RPLL2k definitive NAIA scenery.

By the way...
My main site is http://fspb.tripod.com
just incase some of you don't know about it

Kevin has many popular sceneries published for FS already -- the original Manila, and detailed Clark, Baguio, Subic.... He also has a hangar full of Boeing and Airbus aircraft uploads.
Didn't you work with Alfred Grech, or with his pioneering Philippine scenery for FS5.1?
Want to put your website on here too? I'm sure folks would like to check out your work.
When your Philippine vacation plans finalize let me know the approx dates and we can organize a 'homecoming'!

I have many works most of which I forgot already..hehehe.... I started uploading stuff in AOL well before flightsim.com started.
As for Grech... Grech cannot be contacted so I pretty much worked on my own without asking his permision. He never really replied to anything so I guess its okay with him. He was really unreachable and never replied to any of my requests and emails.

Elmer is the CEO of Pilipinas Airways, the Virtual Airline that ties us together in our interest. He has championed the growth of its fleet, the establishment of its Manila and Cebu hubs (a KSFO hub is coming up soon, right?)
Elmer's picture has never been published here but I always imagine him to look like a velvet-suit clad Danny de Vito with an expensive cigar, almost completely covered in virtual paint as he single-handedly experiments with yet another livery design for Pinas Air.
Of course I could be totally wrong and he looks like Schwarzeneger

FSFW95 Battle Damaged Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress. They hit you over the target. Your controls are mushy, your fuel gone. Watch engine temps, and keep the ball turret pointed at the North Sea. Can you get her home, or do you hit the silk? B-17F with battle-damage textures and appropriate performance. By Tonet Rivera. (repaint for fs95, before they invented CFS )
Never realized there were so many Pinoy simmers. Wonder how many more are in the woodwork, like I used to be, closet pilots sneaking flights in the office PC, before the internet and Peter's website came along. And saw, as Kebin says, that it was good!
Flightsimming is really fun for you guys, but it's also health therapy for me. Please keep it up.
