Editorial

Having spent a few hours looking for something fresh to fly around in FS2004, I eventually came to this project. It seemed to be a good choice as it was easy to use and very effective in terms of its style and its format, but the thing that I was most impressed by was the initial look of the paintwork. Having gotten a little too used to the higher level of detail in FSX, I was blown away that FS2004 could manage these depths in terms of texture style, realism and attention to even the most minor of details.

This made it really easy for me to get into this aircraft, as I knew a lot about the C-17 before using this. The problem was that I didn’t have much experience of how these would fly, so I spend several hours looking into the actual way that it flies and the way that operates from the perspective of the pilot. This made it much easier for the aircraft to be flown properly by me, as I was able to quite easily notice how this aircraft works in comparison to the real thing; the attention to detail and features was massive.

It works extremely well and it also offers a rather unique way of flying if you are used to more modern machines. Given that it uses so many unique little features and add-ons throughout as an aircraft in real-life, this odes a pretty valiant job of putting it all together and giving you something that makes a lot more sense.

The aircraft that is included in her has been around since the mid-90s and since then I’ve gotten to know it quite well in terms of the aircraft model and its build, but this was the first take on it that I have ever tried out in a simulator. It was very impressive and carried the right build and feeling for me, but it also looked very good, too. The depth of detail in the model is massive as it manages to really capture the aircrafts features and its bulky, challenging shape very well.

Even the color schemes and the shades are just right, making it look awesome and ensuring that it follows the historical precedent that was set for it. There might not be many aircraft out there that you can take on that are as easy to fly as this, though. I was so impressed with the ease of which I could take off and land with as it made it all very easy; in the fact, the biggest challenge for me was getting to grips with the way that it mimicked the real thing so incredibly well.

As far as finding something that really makes sense and gives you the control that you need, this is a very impressive model to start with. The Globemaster III is very impressive and it’s an aircraft that is worth picking up, I was certainly very impressed by its depth and its ability to replicate the real thing so impressively and so closely.

Great download. Flys just like the real thing. I flew one of these for 6 years in the military. Never seen a better immitation.
