Secret Project #1: This one is a classic!

Recommended Posts

Let me add my kudos for this great bird! From PMDG we can count on a very high quality product which this aircraft deserves. I'd like to add my voice too for a cargo version as many of the remaining DC6's are used now for such a purpose. Thanks!

Ray-I'm going to be picking up my DC-3 type later in the spring- so here is what I propose:You fly one wing... I'll fly the other.... We'll just tell them we are a pair of 3's in close formation. :(
What I deciphered: There will be a PMDG DC-3 in our future. :(

A PMDG DC-3? That is quite an awesome idea. Since the thread's first post included the words "PMDG", "communication", "Scott", and "A2A", perhaps we'd see a joint-venture DC-3?

Good point! I want to scratch my "There will be a PMDG DC-3 in our future" idea and substitute it with "There will be a joint project PMDG/A2A Accusim DC-3 in our future"! You heard it here, folks.Just%20Kidding.gifTo the knuckle heads: This is purely entertainment. Make of it what you will, but the above is still a pipe dream for now. Edited by ZachLW

When i see the video above from flying the DC i think it's absolutely necessary to make this plane MultiCrew-able. How else should we fiddeling all the levers, only moveable with much power in the arms, there are minimum two guys necessary. PLEASE THINK ABOUT THIS! :(

Señor Capitán:Thank you for this wonderful aircraft. I flew on them many times. From Guatemala City to New Orleans for all my grammar and high school years!!!! starting in 1954, PAA was the carrier. At the time It was a Love- hated relationship for it was my transportation to a bordering school!!!! not great fun. I think it cruised the Gulf of Mexico at around eight thousand feet and man the ride was bumpy, ups and downs galore.....:):) :(....the brown bags sure were a needed artifact!!!!!, poor those guys that had to clean the plane after a turbulent flight!!!!.....But I must say my love for the plane surged over the hate part....I have almost all DC-6s that have been made freeware for FS9 and FSX and constantly fly the ladies, all models. So, congratulations for your thoughts that brought you to having this most famous aircraft developed. I will check here constantly and hope you shoot it out of the manufacturing plant Fast!!!!!!....I will start making, tonight, a few Missions for it and obviously some Adventure Flights too....I have seen one or two landing in MPTO still, Latin American Airlines and many Freight lines used this baby for ages!!!! you can see some skeletons of it in many airports down south today.Gera

Oh yes, please. I've been wishing for a PMDG-level -3 for FSX recently. I get to work on one IRL, would love to have something in the sim to fly.

I simply cannot wait for this bird to be released :Batting Eyelashes:If you PMDG chaps would like to drop me a message/email if interested.I did cover the current real world Everts fleet for the Calclassic freeware version last year and I still have all of my hand drawn original master large res textures and special paintwork saved.You are more than welcome to these if it will help the team with this project with regards to the Everts Air Cargo and tanker fleet. http://library.avsim...crp&DLID=157875Best RegardsDavid James

That is one pipe dream I love...I would accept a mere PMDG DC-3 or A2A DC-3... if there were to be a teaming up, that would be surely a wonderful thing... But let's hold the speculation for the time being and wait for the DC-6 to come out and be enjoyed...What great times for FSX are here and still to come!Andrew

Very nice looking bird, though I'm afraid it will join the turboprop on my very short list of PMDG products decided against. Just not my style. Holla when the jets come out!

Nice DC-6! Any chance for a PMDG Gulfstream 159?? Now that would be good for a classic with those RR darts.Alex Bart

Really, this is an amazing development.Elated as I am, though,Let me ask a nice simple question.Every PMDG product up to this point has been a modern, currently used aircraft.After ten years of this business plan,Suddenly PMDG is mooching in a new directionEssentially, Why?Due to the sudden nature of this announcementAlong with the amazing screenshots,The other question I have,Everyone is asking it:?(don't ask about why I formatted the post this way, there's a reason...(grinning).

Doug-ahahahah... Cute. :sad:I got involved in the process to try and bring some common sense to this inept, corrupt, backward state of ours.The lesson I learned is that the only thing our inept, corrupt politicans are good at doing, is protecting themselves from being infiltrated by those of us who would not tolerate their corruption and ineptitude. The level of corruption here in NV is staggering... But to hear more about that you'll have to wait until I find time to write the book about what I discovered.Now I'm focused on doing what is right for my wife and daughter, and the people associated with PMDG.As I said in an earlier post: You guys get to benefit from what we do for fun around here. :(

Aaron-Read my introduction post. Read my followup posts...The way you ask your question appears to presume that a) we are required to justify it to anyone and b ) that it has some negative impact.As I've said in a number of posts- this project came out of the desire to use our developer down-time as they move between proejcts. I'm sorry it disappoints you that we would choose to take our down time to do something creative, fun and different... But if you spend enough time around here- you will learn that we occasionally do things new and different beacause..... we can.

Fantastic news!I could never even have ventured to guess what this project was.. What a positive surprise this is!I'm almost as excited as the day i flew with Dakota Norway's shiny DC-3 with those awesome radial piston engines after reading this topic :)I remember that before takeoff they had to test both ignition systems to make sure there was no malfunction, then it took off and slowly climbed up towards the bright blue sky. It was undescribeable to listen to those fantastic engines and enjoying the local scenery.Can't wait to fire up those DC-6 engines. Truly looking forward to this one.

Wow......very impressive indeed....you can almost smell the oil and kero! A question....will this bird also have the "wear and tear" modelled as the NGX??? Maintenance failures, etc???

It was sort of a joke, sorry if it didn't work as planned. I did read the opening post and knew you guys wanted to not have to deal with people pestering you on release dates, so I had figured I would throw it in semi-subliminally as a sort of joke.The post isn't supposed to be taken seriously, I just needed some way of getting the lines to have the right order, and there needed to be a question mark at the very end.
