I'm almost more excited for this than the PMDG stuff. Probably because it's been known for a long time that PMDG was making the switchover, but no one knew about Leonardo. Fantastic news - the Maddog was/is one of my favorites in p3d.

Can anyone explain why Leonardo isn't being taken to the woodshed for saying the SDK needs to be more complete? PMDG basically says the same thing and then some individuals on this forum ship their pants in anger.

Was thinking the same thing. Price will probably be in the ballpark as well.

While the NGX is really what I'm waiting for, I will likely get this if it comes out first. I didn't get it for P3D, because the RW flight options, particularly in the US, are pretty limited.

Used to fly the Shady 80. Can't wait to re-trigger those nightmares on MSFS.

Definite buy. Just hope FS2Crew follows suite.

As of February 2018, the MD-80 series has been involved in 71 incidents, including 35 hull-loss accidents, with 1,446 fatalities of occupants.

That's scary 😮

I would not be too worried about that, by the time it's out we might be in the new gen of RTX40xx and Ryzen 6

Back in 2015 when I used to fly, my airline had a near crash that never made the news. Back then the PNF would perform the walk-around. For this flight that was the FO. He got to the tail and saw the elevators full up.

A little fact about the Maddog: The yoke doesn't move the elevators or ailerons. They actually control tiny trim tabs on the airfoils, and through aerodynamic forces the entire control surface moves with them. That's why on landing videos you see Maddog pilots making huge sweeping motions with the yoke.

So seeing the elevators up or down or whatever isn't abnormal as they free float with the wind. So the FO finished his walk-around and came back inside.

Fast forward to take-off. 80 knots, cross check, and suddenly the nose wheel starts to lift. The Captain is shoving his yoke all the way into the instruments and the nose is still rising.

He yells "I can't control it!" and, as the story goes, the PNF starts the abort right before the mains would have lifted off the runway.

Fast forward to when maintenance tries to determine why the aircraft is AoG: They find a nut or bolt jammed in the elevator assembly, keeping it in a full aft configuration.

The Captain told me he still has nightmares about it. Had the plane lifted off, it would have stalled, rolled over, and landed on a casino in the middle of the Las Vegas Strip a few thousand feet off the runway threshold.

And this is just one of many reasons why we called it the shady 80.

Thanks for this story, that's absolutely terrifying 😨

How can you regain confidence on this plane after that...

You guys are going to be waiting a lot longer than you think for this bird in MSFS. Don't hold your breath.

I  was going to say the same thing. We ain't getting any airliner until 2002. Not even the Aerosoft CRJ. 🙂
