    Chuck_Jodry-VJPL

    The Just Flight DC-8 JETLINER SERIES 10 TO 40 has been released. This new FSX collection featuring the early variants of Douglas' long range narrow-body jet airliner includes five DC-8 variants in a total of 19 liveries. All with a very high degree of functionality in the virtual cockpits which are complete with Engineer’s and Navigator’s panels.

     

    Five DC-8 variants (DC-8-10, -12, -21, -32 and -42) and 19 liveries

     

    Highly functional virtual cockpit with virtually all of the hundreds of switches, knobs and levers animated and functional. Many gauges are modelled in 3D for smooth operation

     

    Engineer and Navigator panels are included.The Engineer's panel features functioning engine, hydraulic, electrical and fuel systems

     

    Numerous authentic animations include retractable landing lights, opening pressure valve gate in the tail, rams and operating levers for spoilers, and trim-adjustable horizontal/elevator tail assembly

     

    Authentically modelled electrics enable correct engine starts with ignition lock-out and over-ride functions for each engine starter

     

    Special programming code has been used to re-create the complex fuel storage and delivery systems for each engine

     

    Realistic sound sets for the Pratt and Whitney and Rolls-Royce turbofans

     

    Wing flex on all variants

     

    Avionics include full autopilot functionality from the operating period with NAV and ILS approaches, VOR and ADF receivers and displays, transponders and a full communications suite

     

    Special effects reproduce the incredible smoke trails of these early DC-8s and correct reverse thrust smoke is also modelled

     

    Features to improve ‘usability’ include switches to hide the control yokes and co-pilot's seat for a better view of the instruments and preset angled views for the overhead panel, throttle quadrant and radios

     

    Numerous warning annunciators will illuminate on fault detection

     

    Specular map to give realistic light effects on the aircraft surfaces and Bump mapping to give a more realistic 3D effect to aircraft liveries

     

    Special slats in the leading edges of the wings open ahead of the main flaps and the full slotted-flap system is faithfully reproduced

     

    Full cockpit lighting with atmospheric instrument backlighting

     

    Simulation of the DC-8's engine thrust reverse in flight to assist with air braking

     

    Full colour PDF manual
