Sure is better then what Captsim uses for it's C130. I was expecting a bit more ear candy, but overall, pretty good. The squeaky noises you hear when you start rolling are cool.Althought the added click sound for the flap handle should not be there (it is suppose to slide) it is, nonetheless, fun to hear. You really feel the rumbling of the engines if you have a deep bass on your sound system( it really annoyes my wife, which is a good sign!) Like i said: overall not bad.
