Looking for a god DC-9?? check this one!

Recommended Posts

I have been wanting a decent DC-9 for a while. Project freeware reopening has been great and these look very good but they are older models still. Recently there have been several 9's come out but I have to say the freeware one from Van's is really nice. I tried to download and install the Northwest one last night but had some unknown problem not allowing it to show. So I saw the Aeropostal version and used it and swapped the textures, works like a champ now. The Flight model is really good and the door and stairs work along with the thrust reversers. It has a rough virtual pit but I dont use these in the big iron anyway. I would recommend this if your looking for a nice DC-9. Now who wants to do me a repaint in Delta colors from 1987-88??? :)http://www.flightsimmers.net/airport/hornit/dc9.jpg

Hi everyone, the DC9-32 of Northwest in the pic above is my repaint, when I upload to avsim I put a wrong AIRCRAFT.CFG, but the update is already in avsim for download. I hope you enjoy this beautyfull aircraft.

You know its kind of funny but I did not notice the typo..."god" until after i had posted, then it was too late to fix cause it had been more than the normal time for that. I got a chuckle out of the above post about god not needing a good DC-9:) My VC is also missing the panel bitmap, but as I said I don't use it anyway. Thanks for the Northwest repaint, its very nice!Hornit

The problem in the VC looks like more than just a missing texture. It looks like a flat slab has been placed in front of the existing panel. The slab is plain gray and sticks up above the normal panel lines obscuring the view. Can anyone edit this and get rid of that slab?

I have downloaded both DC-9's and both are good IMHO. That is not a scientific review, but a quick first impression. I did install the NWA DC-9 as AI and they have no gear, but the FWD entry and aft stairs are open- funny to see taxying! but it works since I've been looking for a proper DC9 for my NWA AI.Tim
