(1) Included 3 high detail models from Javier Fernandez's AI Carrier 2 Add-on

favorite in AI carriers).

night lighting for sitting in port.

Music; hands Across the Sea by the US Navy Band
(4) Added Lights; I was restricted in FSX to adding 18 lights, most lighting was
built-in to the model, including special lighting on the "In-port" Model, so I added
(10) Runway lights; uses beacon
(4) Green IFOLS lights; uses Landing lights
(4) Red IFOLS lights; uses strobe
(5) Added Sounds
NOTE: There is an additional (long) PA announcement that was built into the
original model and will come on at any time that issues orders to properly
prepare for aircraft deck duties. Very nice
