First flown in 1940 and introduced into service with the USAF in 1942, the C-46 Commando was a twin-engine transport aircraft used primarily by the military but also by civilian operators, particularly in the cargo role. Flown extensively during World War II, some of the 3,000 C-46s built before production ended in 1945 went on to serve with airlines and cargo operators in the challenging conditions of South America and the Canadian Arctic, as seen on the popular Ice Pilots NWT television show.

This Just Flight C-46 Commando package includes military, cargo and civilian passenger variants of the aircraft as well as military and civilian cockpit configurations.

Modelled using real-world plans, the aircraft feature multiple animations and highly detailed engines. The faithfully recreated virtual cockpit features 3D instrumentation, wear and tear, and realistic systems functionality.

19 military and civilian liveries (including the famous Buffalo Airways), realistic flight dynamics and an authentic R2800 twin-row radial sound set complete this extensive package.

PC Pilot Classic Award"Another accurate depiction of a classic old freighter from Just Flight... The cockpits are superb exercises in 3D design. Like the external modelling, the AH team has not cut any corners here... You can tell that a lot of attention has gone into the production of a model, particularly when you see that they have modelled the individual tread blocks on the tyres; something I've not seen before!... I was quite impressed by the quality of the liveries... Happily AH is one of the companies that provides almost enough information to fly the real aircraft... If you like the slightly older and more sedate commercial aircraft, you'll love flying the C-46... I did." PC Pilot (Classic Award, 90/100)
