Please forgive me and disregard my last entry. I found how to view the entire aircraft.
I just need to be patient and explore the site more thoroughly.
I'm actually liking this site more and more each time I visit.
Thanks for all your hard work.
Use the FS9 forum here.
I will admit this, if you are coming to FS9 now, it'll be more difficult to find all the add-ons. Some are simply gone or download links are dead. Members here may be able to help out with certain add-ons you cannot find. On the positive side, there are quite a few payware add-ons that have been released for free still available. I do also run a lot of payware in mine that is still payware.
Have a play with FS9 and do some digging, ask questions in the FS9 forum.
If you find you are not enjoying yourself you can always switch back to FSX.
Both FS9/FSX can happily exist on one drive. Install as you have suggested, C/FS9.
Most importantly, have fun!
