Emirates Boeing 777-300ER, registration A6-EBC. Original model by Melvin Rafi. Updates and conversion to FSX by David Grindele.
Original Model By: MELVIN RAFI
Updates and Conversion to FSX By: David Grindele
Most of Mel's aircraft were designed to fly in FS 2000 OR FS 2002 and very few were converted to FS2004 and the ones that were converted to 2004 had afew flight dynamic problems I guess one of the reason's for this was know one tweaked the air file to fly in FS2004 but they are still nice aircraft.
For FSX I wanted to do something very special for MELJET'S I wanted them to have the same Luster and flight dynamics that Mel wanted them to have without looseing or having to compromise anything. What I have done is tweak air files, And the cfg file, I have added A2A 3D Lights and Redux.
And have kept the quality of the aircraft intact. Most of the aircraft have opening engine cowlings that open for maintenance Which makes the Jet engine visible. By pressing shift + E. While at the gate the jetway will now close on the aircraft by pressing crtl + J on your key board.
MELJET'S have alway's been one of my favorite aircraft and I didn't want them to die with FS2000 & FS2002 and I thourght they would when FS9 & FSX hit the market place.
I truly believe you cannot buy and aircraft with the quality of work that has went into these aircraft. And I am proud to say I helped keep Meljets alive.

Having regularly been a big fan of the work of Melvin Rafi, the creator of the original model in this package, I was eager to see what his recreation of the Boeing 777 would be like. so, I decided to pick up this package and see what I made of it, and how it compared with the real thing – as a big fan of the 777-300ER, I was looking forward to being able to witness the improvements made by David Grindele on top of the original model, too.
David had released a lot of good mods in the past, so I thought that this could have been a nice winning combination.
Melvin was well known in the modding days of 2000 and 2002 flight simulators, although some of his projects were ported to FS2004. The quality of the models at the time, however, were absolutely outstanding and helped to really up the profile of just how good fans of the series would be capable of doing; it was this push for fan quality that has helped to make FSX so popular, so it’s always nice to see some of the original names out there that I first used being recognized yet again.
This is almost a tribute to the original aircraft, as the “Meljet” flies with all of the right dynamics and Luster that Mel had originally wanted to provide to the aircraft, without having to make any real compromises to the overall completion of the package.
These changes offer a nice alternative pace, and have been totally tweaked and updated to run in FSX with the right specifications as the old Meljet. If you want to try out a Boeing 777-300ER with a difference, this might be just what you are looking for!
With the nice addition of the A2A 3D Lights and Redux, you get a more complete package than what was available back in the day. These simple changes help to really complete the look and feel of the aircraft, and bring everything together nicely into a far more balanced project.
All of the little touches such as the hotkey activated jetway gates o the opening engine cowlings, you really get to see everything in the aircraft come to life perfectly.
It’s the little touches that always help to make a download feel more enjoyable or personal, and you’ll find plenty of them included in this – it’s incredibly user-friendly whilst still giving you all the charm (and challenge!) that you would be hoping for.
By bringing these old relics from the turn of the millennium, it’s nice to be able to see that they still operate and hold up well against some of the later mods that have been released.
Again, as a big fan of the original releases by Melvin when they first appeared, it was really nice to be able to see them recreated in such awesome style and authenticity by David. If you want to go back in time with some modern additions, this is well worth a look.
