DC-3 - Legends of Flight (Download)

Compatibility: Flight Simulator X

The DC-3 was always the aircraft that manufacturers wanted to replace with something better and more modern but the DC-3 performed so well that a viable replacement wasn't easy to produce - hence the saying, “The only aircraft to replace a DC-3 is another DC-3.”   

This fantastic package features the Douglas DC-3 in seven classic airline liveries, as well as two USAAF C-47 transports and an RAF Dakota. Also included are the AC-47 gunship, which saw service in the Vietnam war, and a fully flyable Waco CG-4A glider! 

The aircraft exteriors and virtual cockpits are all modelled to the highest level of detail, and civilian passenger cabins and military cargo holds are modelled with appropriate animations - suitably dressed stewardesses and crew vehicles for the airliners, and cargo and troops in the military transports.

Fly the many variants of a true Legend of Flight!

"Just Flight and Aeroplane Heaven have started 2011 with a tour-de-force. This is their finest release yet, bar none, and equally one of the most impressive packages yet to be seen for FSX... I have never seen so much variation and attention to detail in an aircraft model's interior and exterior... The virtual cockpit too is a delight, with a pitch perfect rendering of the period cockpit... "Gorgeous external models for each aircraft that really do justice to the DC-3... The simulation performs extremely closely to published figures in all phases of flight" PC Pilot (Platinum Award)

"The aircraft exterior and interior modelling is excellent and the additional features, particularly the Waco Glider, make it a 'must have' addition to any simmer's hangar... In particular, I was taken with the detailed modelling of the radial engines - quite brilliant!... From a visual point of view, you will not be disappointed with the VC... The animation of the main moving parts of the aircraft has been extremely well executed... The Just Flight DC-3 PDF Manual is well presented and most comprehensive" Mutley's Hangar (9/10)

"What I do like about the DC-3/C-47 cockpit is that what is modeled in 3D and looks superb - from the throttles to the switches on the overhead panel... Both cabins [Civilian and Military] are accurate, and very nice looking - even if you do not like to use the cabin, this one is worth looking at it - and one of the best I have ever seen!... From start up to shut down, everything sounds as you would expect" Avsim.com

"Beautifully rendered, both inside and out... Incomparably better than the default FSX version... The level of detail is very atmospheric, extending to the inside of the flaps... As in the real aircraft, you can make a two-point landing without bouncing, something many FSX planes cannot do" Piloot En Vliegtuig

"A highly detailed aircraft - and much more... Gorgeous Virtual Cockpit... Flying around is a pleasure... The sound is awesome and, with your eyes closed, it feels 'as real as it gets', which is also applicable for the flight characteristics... A legendary model!" FS Visions.nl
