The DC-6B was the epitome of the radial piston engine passenger aircraft. Powerful, noisy and smoky on engine start-up, the DC-6B was flown all over the world and opened up air travel on every continent. Originally designed in 1944 as the XC-112 military transport aircraft, the DC-6B was reworked into a civilian aircraft in order to compete with Lockheed’s Constellation. The aircraft was a true success story, with some of the 700 aircraft that were built still in service today, predominantly in cargo roles.

The DC-6B was also used heavily by the United States Air Force and Navy, known as the C-118B or VC-118 in military service, even serving as Air Force One.

Developed by the classic airliner experts at Aeroplane Heaven, DC-6B Legends of Flight was built exclusively for Flight Simulator X. Fully functional virtual cockpits, detailed passenger cabins and numerous exterior animations make this a true legend of flight!

A great aircraft. Part of what makes this an enjoyable addon is of course that it's a DC-6! ... A legendary and beautiful aircraft. The product is made by Aeroplane Heaven and does show some of their often appearing limitations, especailly around systems coverage which is very sparse to say the least. However, the VC looks pleasant enough, the sounds are fantastic and most importantly of all, it flies like a dream. Good frame rates too. It will never be a PMDG level product but nontheless it's great fun and one of the addons I enjoy most of all in my collection. I would rate it overall at 3.5 stars but because it's a DC-6 I rounded it up to four. :)
