  • Description

    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!

    I feel like no Douglas collection is complete without the oft overlooked DC6. Its history is rich. Unfortunately while it looks really good, it’s not as in depth systems-wise. The planes were pressurized yet it’s not a simulated system? Unless I have gone blind? If that’s the case I apologize. I suppose that’s not a really big deal. The planes are so nicely modeled with exquisite detail and they are plenty fun to fly. I forgot that Red Bull used a fully restored one for a while. The lighting is excellent and the engines do roar. This all makes for a great experience for a relatively low priced add on.  There’s 2 add on extensions with some more liveries if you want more options beyond this base package. 
    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. :)


    Ich habe lange überlegt, ob ich mir das Flugzeug kaufe, und bin froh dass ich es getan habe. Das Flugzeug ist eine Perle, so dass es bei mir - von den Favoriten in meiner Sammlung - Platz 2 eingenommen hat, und das heißt schon was. Ich bin sehr pingelig, was meine Vorstellung von einem guten Flugzeug entspricht. Aber dieser Vogel ist ein Sahnestück. Schade das unsere Welt so steril geworden ist, was Schönheit und Eleganz ausmacht, und dass man solche Perlen nicht mehr baut. Um so besser dass es Entwickler gibt, die es schaffen solche tollen Effekte und Flugeigenschaften vom Original zu kopieren und für den FSX umzusetzen. Kein Wunder dass RED BULL sowas in der Realität restauriert hat. Und der Sound ist hier der reinste Donnergott; genau wie ich es mag. Das kann man in dem Video überhaupt nicht erahnen. Das Geld ist hier wirklich nicht zu viel. Ich werde mir die anderen Packs auch noch besorgen. Absolute Kaufempfehlung von mir!


    Ein sehr schöner Flieger wunderbar animiert und mit sehr viel liebe zum Detail! Der Sound und die Flugeigenschaften sind TOP,nur was mich stört wiso kann man ein Manual & Checklisten nicht als PDF beilegen das sollte heutzutage eigendlich Standart sein! Für mich persönlich der beste Oltimer zur Zeit den man kaufen kann, also holt in euch :-)
