The Boeing 307 was the first pressurized airliner. Because of the war, only 10 were built, initially for Pan American and TWA, and a special version for Howard Hughes. Three versions included here, in PanAm and TWA colours.

Editorial

When I first downloaded this mod I was not quite sure what to expect; this particular range of the Boeing brand was something I knew little about. However, its historical impact (this was the first ever pressurized airliner) made me want to try it out and see what history could show me. The creator of this mod done a wonderful job in putting together something that is fresh and fair, whilst doing a marvelous job of capturing all of the little things that make an aircraft feel that bit unique.

What I would suggest is that this Boeing 307 Stratoliner mod has really taken the extremes of design and precision to another level for freeware mods. This is a brilliant design and with the kind of limited addition appeal of this aircraft – only 10 were ever built – I was massively impressed by the great work put into this mod. It’s a greatly detailed and very attentive homage to the real thing, offering something that is genuinely special in terms of history.

However, this is not to say that I was only impressed with how it looked – the way it flies is class, too!

I was really impressed by the whole image and feel of the aircraft, doing a fine job of capturing the real thing and making it look absolutely spectacular across the board. With the detail of the cockpit equally as impressive as the aircrafts interior, this is a wonderful package to start flying around with if you are trying to get to grips with a different kind of aircraft.

Not all of us have had the pleasure of hopping into the cockpit of something as rare as this so, if you are like me and want to try it out, virtually is probably the best bet you’ll have!

Either way, though, this is a brilliant rendition of the aircraft. Given numerous discussions with enthusiasts and experts alike, I can safely vouch for this being a really impressive remake. This is a mod that takes the best of the real aircraft and makes it apparent, without moving away from a strictly realistic grounding.

For fans and enthusiasts alike, this is a brilliant place to start!

I downloaded and installed this aircraft, and there is a little problem; some body panels are missing from the exterior body of the aircraft, on the bottom part of the nose, and also near the tail of the airplane. What can be done, if I may ask?

Pro MemberjimmyberryTue, 13 Sep 2016 20:07:33 GMT

LOVE!!! these old vintage plans loaded easy and flys great (EVEN ILS With this one ) Keep em' comming

I like the 307 model, and went right for the 377 one. The 307 is a C-46 Commando on steriods, and 4 engines vice 2. It flies well, with just a little down nose pitch that can be adjusted. JWB, I too have the transperant lower nose, and both sides aft of the crew entrance doors. It looks as if a cargo door version was attempted and dropped. Don't know how to fix it yet, but will wait for someone to come up with one. One of you asked about a B-29, the only one out there right now is the "Wings of Power" (Bombers) with two versions. One comes with it, and a second night version, is given to you when you register it. GREAT models both. Well worth investing in, as you get several other bombers, and some German jets to boot.

This is why comments work, I was found this file on the internet but it was a setup file, I wasn't brave enough to run a setup file. But I saw your great comments and downloaded and it was.................AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! VERY NICE, the one with Pan Am colors. I even made a payload model for fspassengers! Also, look at the reference to see how to fly this.

Works really good, don't forget trim!
Pro MemberjwblackWed, 17 Jun 2009 02:58:22 GMT
Flys great, everything works, but on the paint, I lose the labeling and the bottom of the cockpit, it's transparent. Any idea how to fix?
Pro MemberTimmileyFri, 08 Aug 2008 23:29:42 GMT
THIS IS A GREAT PLANE AND HAS AN INSTALL FILE. I WOULD PAY ABOUT $8 FOR THIS ONE.
Pro MembermikeandikeFri, 27 Jun 2008 17:14:50 GMT
Does anyone know where I can find the Boeing C-97 Stratocruiser?
Pro MemberBoeing787FanMon, 08 Oct 2007 19:58:24 GMT

Pro MemberFlatheadSmithThu, 22 Feb 2007 07:18:54 GMT
Some drift on AutoPilot when FlightPlan is active on 2 hours flight. I was very happy with the feel of the Ole' Bird, but I like old stuff. I was thinking that I could almost breath in the smell of that old beautiful aircraft.
Pro MemberdelamotheTue, 13 Feb 2007 02:44:23 GMT
This is a great effort. Thank you for making this sim available!
Pro MemberreistecThu, 01 Feb 2007 04:02:49 GMT
Pvt pilot report, flys great, VC works very well as does all controls. this is a fun sim plane. Thanks to the makers for the auto install. Now some one should make a B-29.
