    This aircraft is MUST HAVE! The classic aircraft have always been my favorite and I've been looking for a long time for a classic airliner that's good-looking, with good flying qualities, avionics and systems that work, and is frame-rate friendly-now I've found it! It's beautiful-with it's wonderful analog cockpit, VOR-to-VOR navigation, and old-style autopilot. It is one of the most engrossing, enjoyable aircraft to learn and use I've ever had. It's a near perfect 10 in every category.

    Good addon, installer and addon itself work perfectly fine on my Windows 7 64 bit. However sound aren't indeed very good, some inaccuracies with systems and also I find flight dynamics kind of weird, elevator seems to be a bit too sensitive to even smaller control movements.
Anyway I recommend this for anyone looking for FSX DC-9, this is the best one available at the moment, though I have seen another developer working on DC-9 addon which seems to be better than this one.

    It might look good at first, however this aircraft could have been way more worked on. It would be worth the money, would it have been on sale for 15 EUR.
Errors & dislikes:
- Both HSI 1 & 2 are coupled to NAV1 Freq and NAV1 Course.
- Some buttons don't have a complete range.
- Some buttons haven't been modeled and are therefore unclickable.
- Jaggy sounds.
- Incomplete flight planning documentation.
- No support forum.
