New MD-80 from Flight 1 arriving soon.

Recommended Posts

Hi,Did you see this previev of the new MD-80 from Flight1?http://ultimatetraffic.flight1.net/forums/...1189&PN=1&TPN=1http://www.coolsky.no/sc/The panel is made by Espen, who also made that excellent F50 panel. That fact alone is enough to inderstand that this package will be great. :-)Happy landings,http://www.scandicair.com/images/as_banner.jpg

You can also see some fresh pictures here...http://www.simforums.com/forums/forum_post...?TID=14313&PN=1Espen has worked very hard on this panel, and it is one of those planes for switch-and-system lover type pilots, in that it goes very deep in its design. It is mostly analog and has to be flown differently than modern glass aircraft.Terry Gaff did the visual model which will of course be up to his usual standards, and Jerry Beckwith worked his magic on the flight model.We will have a press announcement going out late today or in the morning with all the features.


Thanks,

Wow, I had no idea about this. Looks really interesting, especially the training guide. And I was thinking of getting the DF727.. :) Ian

SteveI have been looking for a really good advanced MD :-) Plus I am also getting a little bored with all singing and dancing press LNAV and VNAV then go away until it lands type of heavies ;-)I hope the VC is good and functional and that the frames are slick and smooth.Peter

:-jumpy :-jumpy Ok, my life is complete now. With the PMDG Boeings, the DF727, and now the MD80, I have all the airliners I could want. My only concern is: where is the AA livery?? :-)Mike

As usual, superb work from Espen. I love the mix of analog instruments with RNAV nav system. Enough EFIS/FMC lets back to the basics!!

The Best news is that Espen is involved with this software ... quite honestly, I have derived more fun and pleasure from flying his freeware Fokker 50 than most other aircraft I have actually paid for. The Fokker 50 (along with the old Lago Maddog) spurred my interest and fascination with simming and the aircraft industry as a whole ... after many many many years of every release of flight sim imaginable since 1978 or so ...SO .. Good for Espen ... good for all of us ...I am a frequent flyer of the current Lago Maddog (which I really enjoy) and a periodic flyer of MDMAX (which I enjoy even though there is one lonely Alitalia livery!!!) but I'll make room in my hanger for this MD-80 since it has Espen's name attached!!! Otherwise I would have taken a pass I think ... all of a sudden a glut on the MD-80 sim market .... hahahahahaha ... Best of luck with this release ... I'm looking forward now!!!

Wow :-eekAt last, a decent MD-80 :D---------------------------------------"If it doesn't have a VC, I won't be flying it http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v615/DarrenA300/smug.gif" ... hang on a minute .... http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v615/DarrenA300/unsure.gif ... that is too restrictive! Most flight simulator planes don't have a fully functional VC .... I'm happy to fly non-VC planes such as the brilliant iFDG range, Samdim's fantastic aircraft, POSKY's wonderful planes, and many many others! I'm the richer for it :).

I wish someone did an updated DC-9-series so I could have a cargo version. This looks nice though

It looks fantastic! But what no Alaska? The only reason to get an MD80 is for Alaska and American Airlines... Sheesh... :DOnly teasing, I don't know what they are going to offer as far as liveries....:DKevin

Al,This is a simple one .... get the Jet City DC-9's which include a freighter model ... and merge with Stellan Hilmersby's brilliant DC-9 panel ... does not get better than that.
