Thanks Skully and IFR7700 for kind words.

Skully,

 

No I am happy with HJG DC-8s but I am thinking of getting Aerosim DC-8s because they feature SUPER SHINY engines. Two problems with Aerosim DC-8: Their website is in Japanese meaning I do not know where to buy and second problem is that nobody is sure if Aerosim DC-8s will run well on FSX SP1 and SP2.

 

Regards
