Editorial

I’m a huge fan of the old Douglas DC-9, having had the pleasure to be on one on more than one occasion. The aircraft in real-life was comfortable to fly and even more enjoyable to be on, so what was this recreation like? Did it do a good job of capturing the real thing?

Let’s take a look here.

The Quality

Yeah, the quality of the model is absolutely brilliant. The textures are flashy and look great, making sure that it comes with an attentive design that really does all it can to capture that fresh look and feel.

As far as the design goes, though, the quality is one of the most impressive factors. It does a fantastic job in making sure the whole thing looks stellar; by capturing the most impressive levels of depth and precision, this really does impress me.

The Performance

The levels of performance were very good, too. It comes with totally customized panels and gauge files as well as sound sets, so it looks and sounds excellent. More importantly, though, these aren’t there for show – they are there to make you a much better pilot moving forward. This does a spectacular job of giving you something fresh, clear and honest that feels genuinely authentic and fun to be inside.

Sure, I had my mistakes and my problems with balancing the flight as I went along but it was by no means the biggest challenge I’ve ever had in simulation!

The Realism

The levels of realism provided to you here are just exceptional, too. They make it much easier for you to enjoy yourself and to have some fun moving forward. The realism levels that are on here are some of the most impressive I’ve had from a free download, with spot on flight dynamics and numerous minor changes that all come into tandem with one another to make a very fun flight experience.

I was hugely impressed by the way that it handled itself in the skies, and given the real thing is known for that stability as well it certainly ensured it felt realistic.

The Verdict

I would recommend this to both fans of the real thing and for those who have never been in the real thing before. Jake Snell, Fraser Turner and Erick Cantu are the people who make the right choices here; they’ve created a very impressive simulation model.

Looks good minus non of the panels worked for me the 2d came up but with not gauges went back to look at the file no gauges as well.
