No Money Mondays: Douglas C-47
October 23, 2018
If you are looking for a break from the world of today’s aircraft, why not try out yesterday’s aircraft? Specifically, the Douglas C-47 that first flew nearly eight decades ago.
This was originally designed by Manfred Jahn, Jan Visser and the team for Prepar3D, with Aeroworx obtaining permission to convert it to X-Plane.
The cockpit features an array of active switches and functions, enclosed in an environment filled with highly-detailed modelling and texturing. Whether you are new to flight simming or a veteran, acclimatising with the instruments should be no problem, as the analogue gauges present no digital displays and thus, little to learn.
It also includes custom sounds for the ears, and documentation for the eyes; some of this is the original from 1946!
