    It's been 4 years since HJG first launched its DC-10 inventory. Within a year of that original release though it was already rethinking this entire project .... given the fidelity gap which then existed between its L-1011 and DC-10 panels.
     
    Upgrading the original DC-10 panel releases was considered essential in order to parallel the quality of both projects. HJG is therefore now pleased to announce release of its "NEW" DC-10 project.
    This revision represents some 3 years (2 years and 11 months to be precise) of study, consultation, compilation, testing, and adjusting .... assisted by significant R/W support and driven by the dedication and efforts of George CARTY, Mike MONCE, and Benoit PLAMONDON .... aka "the HJG in-house development team".
     
    This project isn't just a panel revision only. In fact it's "an entirely new project" composed of each of the following components ....
    12 new panels (featuring both standard and tape engine instrumentation) .... each of which are also now "aircraft type specific.
     
    PLEASE NOTE: These "NEW" panels are now both "FS2004 and FSX compatible" and composed of all the following features ....
     
    - New captain and F/O view main panel view options with improved gauges.
    - Aircraft/Engine type calibrated engine gauges.
    - Dynamic weight and flap detent calibrated V-REF chart (with auto-updating T/O and landing data).
    - Multi-functional AP MCP with both VS and IAS pitch modes, VOR/INS/GPS navigation, and auto approach, and fully automatic dual AP controlled auto-flare/autoland capability.
    - Dual AT with Thrust Rating Computer interactivity.
    - WX radar with colour display.
    - Operating windshield wipers.
    - FE panel with functional APU, electrical, hydraulics, pneumatics, and fuel system (with both transfer and dumping capability .... and external vapor effects).
    - APU and GPU assisted engine startup scenarios.
    - New overhead panel with ground support communications.
    - New center pedestal panel .... with a new spoiler lever arming and auto-deployment function.
    - New panel/gauge night lighting/illumination.
    - T/O V-Speed call outs.
    - FPDA GPWS altitude call-outs and other alerts.
    - FPDA gear wind effect (FS2004 only)
    - Both the ability to perform partial or complete cold & dark panel configuration and engine startup options .... as well as default pre-configured/ready to go option (for those whom do, and don't, like systems complexity respectively).
     
    11 "NEW" DC-10 aircraft base packs .... of which each of are supported by the following ....
     
    - New FDE (essential for various elements of these new panels to be able to function).[/b]
    - Some minor 3D model editing.
    And 6 "NEW" (UI) DC-10 sound packs have also now been released .... recompiled in accordance with the new base pack/FDE parameters and as separate "FS2004" and "FSX" specific audio files.
     
    For further information concerning this "NEW" DC-10 project release please refer to HJG's following website announcement ....

    Work continues to advance in regard to a number of other new HJG projects and revisions slotted for future release.

    HIGHLIGHTS
    When it comes to challenging airports, few can argue that Paro airport isn’t one of the most challenging commercial airports in the world. With this airport being well known for its challenging approach to a runway surrounded by mountainous terrain requiring an immediate sharp turn to final, it goes without saying that seeing airliners flying in and out of this airport is an aviation lover’s paradise. In this program we will be following the flight crew of Drukair onboard the A319 and ATR-42 as they fly to destinations such as Kathmandu, Guwahati, Bangkok, Dhaka and Bathpalathang.
     

     
    While I thoroughly enjoyed flying to these destinations, the highlight of this video is by far the takeoffs and landings at Paro. Given the challenges of flying in this region, it was quite impressive to see the level of skill and planning that goes into each flight. The pilots at Drukair are undoubtedly very skilled and their cool and calm demeaning at each step in surely a reassuring sight for the viewers. In addition to the wonderful display of piloting ability, this program also offers the viewers a bit more insight into flying the A319, ATR 42, Bhutan culture and other interesting details about this region. The sights from the cockpit that were captured were stunning to say the least and it was also a very nice gesture on the part of the flight crew to highlight points of interest such as Mt. Everest. Ultimately, this program was a pleasure to look at and it provided an intriguing look at the hard working pilots of Drukair to the benefit of all aviation enthusiasts.

    HIGHLIGHTS
    DAT (Danish Air Transport) is one of the newest airlines to join the HD Cockpit Series produced by Just Planes. While paying tribute to the amazing MD-83, this program also feature some of the unique destinations flown by DAT. These destinations include Copenhagen, Riga, Montpellier, Stockholm and Venice. From the list of destination features, it’s clear to see that this program has no shortage of scenic views from the cockpit while on takeoff and approach. While the scenery outside of the cockpit was amazing, we can’t forget about the cockpit experience. With numerous cameras mounted throughout the cockpit, viewers will be fully immersed in the cockpit environment while following the actions of the pilots as they fly the aircraft.

    Other highlights you may find intriguing are the pilot presentations which offer you a unique look at the aircraft and the operations of the airline. Starting off with a cockpit presentation, the Captain takes the viewers around the cockpit while explaining some of the unique feature of the MD-83 and its reliability vs newer aircraft which is unmatched. Following the presentation on the cockpit, you will also be treated to a detailed walk-around inspection of the aircraft with the beautiful lines of this aircraft can be admired from a perspective few have the privilege of enjoying.

    One of the final highlights I thought was very impressive was the presentation on the airline operations and the privilege had by DAT to fly the FIFA World Cup Trophy around the world. This 8 month contract saw the MD-83 spread its wings around the world thus proving the stunning capabilities of this aircraft. One of the reasons why this presentation was enlightening to me personally, we that I recalled the day that this aircraft flew to my home country of Grenada. Hearing the story behind this journey and how well the MD-83 performed will only cement in our minds how outstanding this aircraft truly is. With the MD-83 sadly being phased out of passenger operations, this program will undoubtedly pay homage to this aircraft and be a fine documentary behind the airline that took this aircraft around the world.
    If you are a fan of the MD-80 series, this is a must have video that will provide hours of insight into this amazing aircraft and unique Danish airline.
