Discover the challenges of flying one of the lesser-known yet successful airliners of the 1950's and 1960's, a Canadian-designed derivative of the Douglas DC-4,  powered by four of the famous Merlin engines.
 
History
 
Towards the end of WWII, Trans-Canada Air Lines (TCA) and the Canadian government began looking for an airliner to meet Canada’s post-war air transportation needs. It was decided that the tried and tested Douglas DC-4 would fit the requirement, and a licence was obtained from Douglas to build the aircraft. It was also decided to incorporate some components from the newer DC-6, just then becomming available. Under the licence terms TCA would be allowed to decide the power plants to be used on this hybrid aircraft, and after much deliberation the Rolls-Royce Merlin 620 was chosen. License requirements from Douglas, who did not want the North Star to compete with their new DC-6, stipulated that the North Star be sold only to Commonwealth countries.
 
Design development began at Canadair in 1944, and was designated the DC-4M (M for Merlin). First flight was on July 15, 1946, in Montreal.
 
Fundamentally, the North Star had the Douglas DC-6 nose, landing gear and fuselage (shortened by 80 inches), DC-4 empennage, rear fuselage, flaps and wing tips, C-54 middle fuselage sections, wing centre- and outer-wing panels, cabin pressurization (where used), a standardized cockpit layout and a different electrical system.
 
71 North Stars were built, in three basic variations. Trans-Canada Airlines flew the DC-4M2, in several layouts and with different engine (Merlin 622, 722 and 724) and prop combinations. The Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) used the C-54GM variant which retained the C-54 fuselage and cargo doors, and later fitted with radar. BOAC, using their C-4 type specifications, ordered 22 aircraft, which they renamed the Argonaut, and which flew with the airline in locations around the world from 1949 to 1960. Trans-Canada Air Lines used the North Star until 1961, and the RCAF kept theirs until 1965.
 
One side-effect of using Merlins was that both TCA and BOAC received passenger complaints about engine noise, and as a result both companies developed 'crossover' exhaust systems to have the exhaust pipes exit on the side of the engine away from the passengers, which reduced noise to only 93-102 decibels. Still loud, if you consider that the level at which sustained exposure may result in hearing loss is 90 – 95 decibels!
 
In later service, the fast and reliable North Stars were used by other airlines, such as British Midland and Overseas Airways, and several other smaller private and military operators for passenger and cargo services. Final flights of the type overall were by private cargo companies in the early 1970’s.
 
Only one complete North Star still exists, an RCAF C-54GM, residing at the Canada Aviation Museum in Ottawa, Canada.

SIMWORKS STUDIOS - SWS F-4B/N PHANTOM II FSX P3D
Werner Herrmann
Dieses Addon ist von der Grafik und der Funktionalität sehr gut.Ich habe mir das Addon in der Version 1.1 gekauft, das funktionierte einwandfrei. Dann kam die Version 1.2 heraus. Als ich diese aufspielte, funktionierte bei dem Addon die Steuerflächen nicht mehr. Dies wurde mit der kurz darauf folgenden Version 1.3 nicht besser. Ich wandte mich mit meinem Problem an die Entwickler (SimWorks Studios), obwohl sie sich Mühe gaben, wurde die Problemsuche immer aufwendiger, so dass es irgendwann meinen Horizont überstieg und ich die Sache abgebrochen habe. Für mich war dieses Addon leider ein Fehlinwest
CAPTAIN SIM - 777 CAPTAIN BASEPACK (777-200) FSX
Eric Jochum
Sehr tolles Flugzeug mit zahlreichen Funktionen und Details. Ich würde sagen dass die Captain Sim 777 sogar besser ist als die von PMDG. Wenn man sich das neue Update von Captain Sim runter ladet.
AEROSOFT - NAPOLI X FSX P3D
Peter Klein
Very impressive scenery which runs flawlessly even with sliders maxed out (I3570k oc'ed to 4.3GHz, GT680Ti, 8GB) - really not a high end system). It can be tricky to concentrate on that offset localizer and 3.5° slope of RWY06 when there is so much eye candy to see and enjoy...... :-) I very much appreciate the fact that this scenery has a low price in almost every respect. The purchase price is more than fair, the low amount of harddrive space needed for installation is absolutely astonishing given this high level of detail. I own some high level detail sceneries such as LTBA, LGAV and they consume by far more harddisk space without looking any better. Ground markings, airport buildings and signs also look great and seem to be very accurate. I don't know many airports where taxiing is almost as much fun as take off and landing. Buy it.
JUSTFLIGHT - PA-28R ARROW III X-PLANE 11
Michael Raschpichler
Ein Flugzeug das sehr gut umgesetzt wurde. Sehr gute Framerate und ohne ruckeln geht es über dichtere Scenery. Gekauft und voll begeistert von Texturen, Lichteffekte und Sound. So hat man mit dem X-Plane 11 Flugfreude und endeckt in seiner Piper die Welt. Weiter so JUSTFLIGHT, ihr seid mit solchen Addons auf dem richtigen Kurs.
DIGITAL DESIGN - LOWS SALZBURG X-PLANE 11
Michael Raschpichler
Ich bin begeistert von diesem Addon. Dieser Flughafen ist in Liebe zum Detail programmiert worden. Er liegt in einer wunderschönen Landschaft. Die Stadt Salzburg wurde mit eingebaut, so dass der Anflug ein Augenschmaus ist. Ich werde weitere Addons für den X-Plane 11 von DIGITAL DESIGN beobachten und bei dieser Qualität erwerben.
MAJESTIC SOFTWARE - DASH 8Q 400 PRO EDITION 64BIT P3D
Axel Subotincic
Great plane, really enjoy flying it to places like Castelgar in Canada and all. Super realistic sounds (out of this world compared to Majestic's Q300...), and awesome little details (when Static Air Temp. drops below 0, ice will appear on the engines and wings, and cockpit windows will ice up. Over all, compared to their Q300's price of 230 Canadian Dollars, I think 76.30 CAD is extremely reasonable price-wise. -
Definitely consider it!
FSDREAMTEAM - LOUISVILLE INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT FSX P3D
Maximilian Huhn
Sehr schöne scenery sehr detaliert tolle nachbildung des Ups Hubs Klare Kaufempfehlung
TAXI2GATE - MUNICH AIRPORT EDDM FSX P3D
Peter Thiel3
Ein recht schön modelierter Airport, der nicht ganz mit dem alten Mega Airport München mithalten kann wenn man bedenkt wie alt der schon ist, dafür aber mit P3Dv4 funktioniert. Es gibt bei T2G keine statischen Flugzeuge weshalb man Traffic Software braucht damit man nicht allein auf dem Vorfeld ist. Dafür gibt es sich bewegende Gates und viel drum herum. Wer FTX Germany South benutzt, muß wie im Orx Forum beschrieben drei Bgl Dateiein deaktivieren damit der Airport funktioniert.
VIRTUALCOL - FOKKER 50 VIRTUAL X
Andreas Frühauf
Ich habe mir die Fs2004 Variante der Fokker 50 V2 auf der Hompage von VCol gekauft und bin recht angetan davon. Wer PMDG Niveau erwartet, ist hier natürlich falsch. (Man beachte nur den Preisunterschie-
d...) Die Optik ist recht brauchbar und auch das VC für den Feierabendflug durchaus in Ordnung. Auch bei mir gingen beim ersten Start die Turbinen aus, doch ein Blick in ´s Handbuch zeigte mir den Fehler. Wird die Triebwerksaktiv-
ierung nicht abgeschaltet, werden sie beim Startlauf abgeschaltet, wie es in der Realität auch ist! Alles in allem ein brauchbarer Ersatz für eine ATR72 und für den Flug von A nach B am Abend allemal gut geeignet... Pu-
nktabzug gibt es für das unzureichende "FMC", an dem man zwar Wegpunkte löschen und andere editieren, aber keine Höhen/ Geschwindigkeit-
en eingeben kann.
MK-STUDIOS - FUERTEVENTURA 2017 FSX P3D
Daniel Mrawek
The airport and landscape are very realistic. Unfortunately the ADE file of the airport is missing the cargo definition of the respective stands and also for small ga aircraft, there are no stands defined 57-60, 54-57. I made my own ADE for this reason. A little dissapointment I feel about the autogen buildings. That's not the right look of canarian houses and the hotels are just big houses with gabled roofs. Maybe there should be some generic hotels instead. There are large areas of only hotels and/or holiday bungalows, which could be added with little effort instead of just oversized houses. Therefore only 4 stars from my side.
