What do you think, Marc? 

How successful have previous attempts to garner this kind of information been for you?

To give you an idea, from this week to the next LM will release a hotfix for 5.1 which I dare to believe that SHARKLETS may take a little longer

I’m staying out of this one, LOL.
The cycle continues.

But do you guys really think it will just suddenly drop in some week?

Shouldn‘t we see all the usual stuff like another set of (final) screenshots (the last ones were over half a year ago), some form of promotion (it‘s a new product with a price so they perhaps advertise this a little more), FSElite announcements and at least one or two streamer/beta-tester showing a release candidate a few days or even weeks before release... ? I could imaginge BB showing the new EFB etc. way before release, just like with the ATSU stuff back then... We still didn‘t see none of this yet so it might be still some waiting ahead of us....

(But I hope I‘m so wrong :D)

I agree with you...

First we will see some previews,maybe some trailer,and the sharks maybe shown to us by BB afterwards.

Only time will tell.

The way this usually works is that we see a teaser image posted, then streamers get it, then the NDA is lifted allowing testers to post screenshots, and then it's a matter of it being released. That's usually two-week process. I don't expect the sharks to be available with any kind of immediacy. :)

When the devs have time to joke around, they can't be that far from release :D

Shark liver oil used to be the main source of vitamin A for humans. The liver of a basking shark can weigh over 1,800 pounds and contain 600 gallons of oil.

mmmmm interesting !

mmmmm interseting !

Well whale oil used to be a good trade as well. But anyways each day gone by may be a day closer to release and yet at the same time not closer either.

Gents-

The thread is derailing. If you want to keep chatting about Airbus Sharklets and the FSLabs products, that's fine, but if we start going way off-topic I'll have to lock it.

You've been warned :).

:(, Sharks, in some form or another, have been around for 450 million years.

The one we want/need not.
