Historic Jetliners Group have great pleasure announcing their "November Website Update", the group's 9th since reformation during April.

Needless to say this month's update comprises of a raft of superb new B707, B720, CV990 and DC8 repaints featuring a selection of nostalgic liveries from European, Latin American, Middle Eastern and North American regions, among which include a new and very rare B707-320 (F) freighter with fully animated maindeck cargo door and containers, a little remembered Asian operated CV990-A, as well as a long requested and much sought after Canadian DC8-63.

This months HJG surprises don't just start and finish there either!

Also included amomg new files for November are a significant number of earlier B707 repaints upgraded for Gary Carlson's great new "version 6" B707-320, -320B, -320C and -420 models (these new models more faithfully reproduce the elegant B707 lines) along with another selection of new USAF C135 ("type") repaints (these latter military aircraft may seem odd inclusions among a jetliner inventory but they are none-the-less related to the civil B707 design and thus more than worthy of representation) and last but by no means least of all two brand new high quality custom soundpacks have been released for both CV880 and CV990 aircraft.

The team at Historic Jetliners Group are dedicated to recapturing for your FS enjoyment the bygone days of first generation civil jetliners, a classic/pioneering era when B707, B720, CV880, CV990 and DC8 all reigned supreme among airlines and airways of the world. These are the aircraft which ushered in the jet age and transformed both air travel and the civil aviation world we take so much for grantid today.

HJG's superb models and FDE are a multiplice and of the highest calibre. All major sub variants/models of each aircraft type are represented, supported by equally authentic panels, and high quality sounds tailored for each specific aircraft/engine type, along with a selection of customised effects files.
