The old Junkers JU-52 is an aircraft that I find has a pretty fitting name – this looks like a piece of junk!
This is not to denigrate the product, by the way, as the developer of this has been very fair and legitimate with the way that it looks.
They’ve left no stone unturned when trying to make this fit and they have ensured that the whole thing feels comfortable and easy enough to use. However, with this FSX Junkers JU-52 remake you will notice just hope quickly this aircraft looks like it was built in a scrapheap – it does in real life, as well!
With that being said, to describe this aircraft as “rugged” would be doing it a disservice. It looks the way that it should with each feature in the design being included quickly and easily. Each feature which ahs been added in makes sure that everything on the inside and out is managed properly.
The aircraft comes with an impressive and freshly designed livery on the outside with the ZS-AFA added on for good effect. Given that this aircraft is a part of a museum these days, it’s no surprise that it looks a bit dated in terms of its shape and style.
However, this fits with the real thing – this refurbished model, though, is much better to look at on the inside. It carries the real style and feel of the original into the interior, with a fully working and operational interior with each working set of buttons etc. making a big difference in general moving forward.
The aircraft is known as the Tante Ju and we have to say that it lives up to the wacky name.
In terms of how this flies, this makes a huge difference to the overall product. It flies really true to the real thing – a bit awkward but easy enough once you get used to it – and this also ensures that you get an easy enough learning curve as you try and get used to its quirky style. One thing that really impressed me about the overall level of performance that it provides, though, is the depth and detail in the little things.
It flies true to itself and gives you something that might feel a tad dated but can actually be quite a refreshing experience for those who are used to something more serene.
I would happily recommend this to anyone looking for a new flight simulation experience that feels a little bit difference to the norm.
