FSX Boeing C-17 Cargomaster III
This aircraft was built for use in Microsoft Flight Simulator FSX. I am not sure if it will work in FS2004 but you are free to try!
---> Special thanks to Mike Stone for the base model of this aircraft which, without it, this repaint model would not be possible. <---

As a fan of the Boeing brand in general, I love trying out different models and seeing what I think in comparison to other similar models both from Boeing and other big name companies like that. One thing that always interested me about this model in particular, though, was the way that it has that kind of military look and feel to it but flies totally different.
I decided to pick up this version of the Cargomaster III to see what I thought of it in terms of how it flew and how authentic it was in comparison to the real thing. Here’s my thoughts.
The performance was nice and smooth, easy enough to control with a decent level of control despite some teething problems getting used to the layout at first. Given that it’s an aircraft made for heavy bulk lifting and still performing you can really feel the strength in the model.
Also, the aircraft is known for its versatility and this is shown up in the way that it flies – you can land this on much stickier airports than before which obviously helps with the precision of the aircraft, meaning you can use a larger aircraft in what would typically be smaller areas.
The level of design in the aircraft is also very impressive – they’ve done a great job of capturing that and making it really come to life. There’s plenty of smaller parts that might not quite capture your eye at first but when it’s part of the image it looks absolutely excellent.
The aircraft is capable of really carrying off those dark and classic features, having a simplistic but effective design. I would quite happily recommend this design for anyone who wants to feel like they are flying on some shadowy adventure!
Although the aircraft has a far more innocent reason for existing, it really does look like something that special ops would be carried out from!
Ease of Use
This was a piece of cake to get installed for a start – it just required a few simple extractions and moving around. It’s also very easy to use in terms of the cockpit has been made to be fully functional.
The lack of a VC was a bit of a bummer but you can’t get everything in life! In short, I was very impressed by this and would recommend any Cargomaster III fans give it a go.
