Editorial

When I first laid eye on this aircraft, I found myself rather confused. However, a brief jogging of the memory brought me back to the hit TV series that the aircraft is based on, Space.

The aircraft that you get here is designed on the original from the series itself, and for fans of the series – or those who like fictional aircraft – this can be immense fun to fly around in.

This aircraft is an absolute monster and is worth check in out for those who want to push the boundaries of performance whilst getting to fly something majorly different.

With a service ceiling of 400,000ft and 75.75 miles and a V max of 2167KIAS @ sea level, you have an aircraft that is major fun to fly.

My Impressions

The first thing that really got to me was how easy it was to fly, given what it’s based on and how it engages itself. The main thing I did enjoy about the design of the aircraft, though, comes from the fact that it was incredible user friendly despite its quirks.

It’s not your average aircraft yet the team behind it have gone a real distance to make sure that it flies just like anything else – though not in a bad way.

It feels totally different to what you might be used to, sure, but it feels magnificent at the same time. One thing that always impresses me about flying fictional models like this is the fact that they tend to carry so much control over their real-life counterparts, making it easy to get to grips with and to master. This is no different.

The detail in the model is spot on, too. It looks just as it should and uses the full power of FSX to ensure it flies with accuracy and detail. The whole system is there to give you an incredible level of performance and make sure that the entire program can feel authentic – well, as authentic as it can given what it’s based on!

I would happily recommend it to any Space fans and beyond.

Oh my god! I LOVE Space 1999! I've always thought that everybody ignored the show! This shows otherwise! Thank you!

Download immediately! Incredible aircraft. 400,000 ft nothing. From the flight analysis I reached 2,500,000 ft!!! You can see the curve of the earth from space. I looked down on the tiny islands of Hawaii where I took off.

It's interesting, landing pads don"t come up, and can"t shut off engines for re-entry so once your in space, that"s it. But a good download if you want to have some fun.

WHAT A GREAT EXPEIENCE AND VERY CREATIVE SHIP. DOWNLOAD IS VERY EASY AND I LIKE TO FLY SOMETHING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT FOR A CHANGE. I WOULD PAY ABOUT $10 FOR THE CHANCE TO FLY THIS THING AND FOOL AROUND WITH IT AND I REALLY RECOMMEND IT TO ALL MEMBERS.

This plane can CLIME SO FAST!! Such a cool plane to fly with. I give it a 8 because it disapointed me that when your finally in space you lose all controll of the SPACE PLANE!! and when you try to get back on earth you spin way out of controll and take forever to get on the ground. lol so if it's not too much to ask can't you guys make somthing that can be controlled in space I would really have fun with it and by the way you guys are doing a GREAT job sorry if Im commenting too much.

Great version of the eagle transport looks just right.Only two things I can think of which could be better, you cant leave the cargo pod behind when you lower it ( E2) and the engines seem to powerful at idle hence trying to landing seems to leave you floating around above the ground unable to get down. But other than that brilliant.Now which way is moon base alpha?

it-s nice to fly so high... its too sensitive 4 my taste ...fun to land it :) ..first time stayed 5 min hovering on 10ft

Wow this thing hauls! Sweet! Textures and lighting are grate. Would have give it a ten but the cockpit needs some work. When you look around all you see is stars to the side and behind you. In the cockpit the only thing you see is the front of the craft. Other then that this a joy to fly around in! It's a shame you can't fly through space with this. I ended up stalling out and losing control at 500,000+ lol.

This is an excellent vehicle to use, take off , landing, lighting and rendering all excellent , the only reason I've given it an eight not a 10 is that the instrument panel on F9 isn't useable and using the hat while inside the cockpit results in a 180 degree view of inside and behind you is space . Apart from that great fun , well done and a big thanks.
