It's been a while... couple of DC-3 questions...

Recommended Posts

Guest JTEK99

It's been a while since I flew the MAAM DC-3. However, I finally found some free time again and installed her anew (all updated). I'd forgotten how wonderful she is to fly. Absolutely drop dead gorgeous, too. :)1) I seem to have also forgotten much in the VC. I find that quite a number of things are *not* clickable in the VC (lights, et. al.). Am I missing something? I have the 4th Edition CD.2) I can do this on my own of course, with a trusty WWII Atlas, however... I was curious if someone has done any series of flightplans for visiting battlesites from WWII/WWI (like on the Eastern or Western Fronts, et. al.). I think something like that might be worthwhile for the Flightsim/Grognard afficionados in the audience. Maybe I'll put something together myself; but I was just wondering if anyone else had done such a thing already.Anyhow.. glad to be back in such a superior aircraft. Thanks again, MAAM-SIM.

You'll find much more clickability (is there such a word?) thanks to Jan Visser's dexterous hands.>2) I can do this on my own of course, with a trusty WWII>Atlas, however...

OK, we haven't done it yet. There's stuff about, though. The lads over at the VA I fly with (DC-3 Airways, an absolute must for any DC-3 enthusiast) have certainly put together such plans, and flown them in formation too; D-Day, Arnhem, and less famous missions. There's add-on scenery too for both the Normandy beaches and for Arnhem.>Anyhow.. glad to be back in such a superior aircraft. Thanks>again, MAAM-SIM.Thank you. Without your support, our time would be wasted. Well not wasted, but the museum would wonder what we were doing, sitting around.MarkMark "Dark Moment" BeaumontVP Fleet, DC-3 AirwaysTeam Member, MAAM-SIM[a href=http://www.swiremariners.com/cathayhk.html" target="_blank]http://www.paxship.com/maamlogo2.jpg[/a]

Mark:Thanks for the reply and the "welcome back".I'm spending some time today with the DC-3 and C-47, doing some much-needed VFR/scenery watching over some select MegaScenery titles. I just finished going through the myriad wonderful repaints for both iterations of the DC-3; literally fantastic variety.Thanks for the pointers to DC3Airways as well as the WW2-oriented scenery. Incidentally, I found the Normandy beach scenery at AVSIM, but didn't find Arnhem (I did find a 'modern' version, Arnhem 2000 or something of the sort... was that the one you were talking about?).I've got a great Sunday plan for the C-47 as I fly "Over the Hump", a journey that will take me on a northern route from Imphal, directly over the Himalayas (a supply run for Generalissimo Chiang Kai-Shek's army... hehe... harrowing if the weather isn't good). I gave it a shot last night, but had to turn back since I had run severely off course. Sunday's flight will be better, I'm sure.Again, thanks for the reply and the information on an updated VC, too!Sincerely,Jay "Chemical Flyer" Tekk
