Douglas isn't on the list supplied with FS. The nearest you can use is atc_type=MCDONNELDOUGLAS (all one word)or you can use atc_type=none for FS to skip that bit and just call you a DC8.boneshttp://fsaviation.net

The atc_model should be either DC85 or DC86 (for DC-8 Series 50 and Series 60).Martin767 fetishistIt's a lot like life and that's what's appealing
