Exclusive: New Previews of the 737 Ultimate

This is a big one, folks.

One of the most anticipated freeware projects of 2017 and 2018 is on short final, and it looks incredible.

The wait is almost over. That little box in the lower right hand corner of the image above is no mistake, it's a menu that lets you tweak almost every imaginable aspect of the aircraft, including cabin color, ground equipment, and so much more.

Missing Virgin America? I am too. You can make it their signature color (albeit ironic in a Boeing) with just a few clicks.

Here's a closeup of Threshold's gorgeous livery designed by our own Peter Tram and painted by AudiobirdXP.

Once this is all said and done, essentially six aircraft will be part of this package. The 737 variants -700, -800, and -900, each with an option to use with split scimitars or not.

Pictured here is the 737-900 (without scimitars), which will be the first variant to be released.

This freeware aircraft was released to painters on Saturday, so we should have our hands on it relatively soon. I have attached additional images below. Stay tuned to Threshold to be the first to know when you can get this beautiful airplane! The scenery used in this release is the freeware KLAX V1.01 by MisterX6, now known at Short Final Designs.
