Editorial

When I first decided to download this aircraft, I knew that I was getting a really impressive package. Project Open Sky tend to be one of the most well-respected in the aviation simulation community, and this remake of the old USAF Air Force One is no different. By combining everything from awesome animation on the control surfaces to the way that the aircraft operates like flexing wings and tilting bogies, this does everything you could need to bring the whole thing to life.

The Design

The first element that caught my eye so heavily was that of the design of the model. With great attention taken to follow the dynamic shine elements of FSX, this also implements awesome design features such as animated control surfaces, opening doors, animations and even damage profiles to make it all look the part. As far as free models go, this is one of the most attentive when it comes to capturing those little features that help to sell a model in the truest sense.

Detailed textures, reflective windows and landing lights from the cockpit really do look wonderful. Even new spoiler animations are added in, helping the whole thing look the best that it possibly could – or should.

The Performance

I was truly impressed by the effects included in this model, making it look absolutely spectacular. From the part damage profiles that show you a whole new look to the aircraft to minor features like reflective textures with varying reflective depth, this looks absolutely awesome.

Another major factor of this aircraft, for me, came from the detail put into the performance of the old aircraft. From 3D wheels to help you really fly the aircraft properly to independent suspension and accurate flight dynamics, this flies just the way that you would have imagined. This makes a massive difference to your overall performance and style, giving you something fresh and interesting.

This makes a major difference to the way that you fly your aircraft, and overall the general impression that you are likely to get from this mod. It does as wonderful job of selling the aircraft in its entirety, using various features from crash affects to effects which have been re-defined time and time again to boost and upgrade performance beyond normal recognition.

I was a huge fan of this model of aircraft before downloading it and finally getting to use it has not disappointed me. It feels just as you would have expected whilst also making it easy for you to understand how it should have been performing from the first time that you open it up. The team at POS have done a wonderful job in making sure that this looks and flies like the real thing, and it’s captured in the most authentic manner possible here.

One of the major factors in this whole program was supposed to be its realism, and it’s safe to say that the team behind this package done an exceptional job in capturing that authenticity.
