here's the first flying infrared telescope arrived in YSFlight.
Hardly modified from TaskForce's B747-400(shortened it's fuselage,make the telescope chamber and deleted the winglets)

considering for Patrick to add it in YSCAS Server....maybe it will be useful when the annual night flight event(actually it can fly anytime).....
