Christmas has gone...2008 is here...along with our first update for the year! First up for the new HJG year are a selection of 21 new aircraft files covering classic and modern jetliners from the 1970's, 80's, 90's, and this new millennium.
Featured among these are some great liveries representing the Caribbean, Europe, Middle East, both North and South America, Scandinavia, and the United Kingdom.
New B707's include -320C's operated by a modern day Brazillian freight carrier, 2 Peruvian Air Force liveries from the 1990's, and an extremly rare US registered -420 once used as a VIP/corporate transport during the late 1970's ...among other interesting B707-120B, -320B, & -420 aircraft. Another a rare CV880 freighter from 1981 is available ...as is also a megga rare natural metal liveried CV990-A operated by a major European carrier during 1964. Among new DC8's is a tribute to the very last of the type ever produced by Douglas ...a SUPER 63 supported by 3 Scandinavian liveries, and SUPER 62F & 63F aircraft operated by a lesser known modern day freight carrier from Brasil. Love'em or hate'em the British Airways "World Tails" debate will likely continue forever ...but... all 5 liveries applied to the airlines BAe 146/RJ-100 fleet between 1999 and 2001 have been faithfully reproduced by HJG.
An updated "FUEL MANAGEMENT TUTORIAL" has been released to benefit more technically inclined virtual pilots among us. Users of the HJG/CARTY B707/720/C135 panels for FS2004 and FSX will find this information extremly useful.
Revised FDE for HJG BAe 146-300 & -300QT aircraft have also been uploaded and result in some nice flight and ground handling improvements for these models.
FSX users of HJG's recently updated DC8 panels will likely have encountered minor Auto-Pilot performance issue, as well as a Flight Director problem which affected both FSX and FS2004. The origin of these problems has been identified and fixed. A new DC8 PANELS CORE FILES package is now available for download. Folk are encouraged download and replace their original DC8 panel gauges with this new set. PLEASE NOTE: This is a "GAUGES/CORE FILES" replacement only. There is no need to change any of the new HJG DC8 panels downloaded since the DECEMBER 19th 2007 update. The HJG forum is the place to enquire for further information regarding this.
