This is another one of my "community project" models. This model continues to be in development and I'll make more updates to it as I get reports from people who use it. The textures are basic masters, 8-bit, 1024x1024 bitmaps. Chrome reflections, and lightmap for night lighting are activated. User is welcome to repaint the model in any livery(s) desired. Uploads of repainted models are also welcome. No prior permission is required. The lightmap textures (_L) included with this archive is a simple placeholder files. User must build their own lightmap files for end use. Flight dynamics are based on the default B777-300, so it will work as an AI model, but will not operate realistically as a DC-8-61. If anyone makes any improvements to the flight model which lets the AI model fly more realistically as a DC-8-61, please send me a copy and I'll include it in a future update.

Unzip the archive directly into your flight simulator's Aircraft folder. It will automatically be setup as a regular, flyable model. To include the model in your ATC traffic, you need to use utilities such as Lee Swordy's "Traffic Tools".

The archive pkdc861.zip has 16 files and directories contained within it.
