Ilyushin-86 by Kirill Konovalov et al.

Recommended Posts

One of the best FS9 releases lately--although there have been lots of them. The real plane is a classic beauty. This flightsim model is fantastic looking and seems to have fully reproduced systems. It gives good frame rates. Beautiful VC with smooth gauges in recessed bevels, good night lighting. It feels like a heavy, underpowered, thirsty airliner with excellent hand-flying characteristics. Quite challenging to fly, even on the "1" setting for realism. Not letting it get too slow on approach is hard work, because the engines aren't going to save you if you get behind the power curve. Once again I regret never having put in the work required to learn Russian. I haven't even figured out how to activate the nosewheel steering, but even if I can only get it to go straight on the ground, it's great fun to fly. Over 1200 downloads on the first day so people are obviously finding it, but I thought it would be nice to mention it on the forums. Congratulations to Kirill Konovalov (whose Ilyushin 96 models also look interesting) and the team.Bill
