This plane is amazing... the weight, physics, description, everything! They even included little passengers to sit in the cabin, that actually look like people! They included so much of the little stuff, even working and photo perfect gauges! The detail in this is absurd and spectacular. A big round of applause to these guys. I have honestly downloaded some terrible planes in the past, but this is just... aw, wow, amazing. Plus, it comes with a little bonus, which I really like.
