13 April 2017 - this DC-8 collection has been updated with a number of enhanced features:

  • Autopilot re-coded for improved usability
  • Fuel system re-coded for improved usability
  • Manual PDF updated to reflect changes to software since release
  • New ADI/HSI added
  • Air start interlock simulated. Engines are started with external power or with cross-bleed if at least one engine is already started.

This collection of early DC-8 models combines all the very latest modelling and texturing techniques with accurate flight dynamics to bring you an authentic simulation of this iconic aircraft!

The DC-8 was one of the first commercial jet airliners to enter service. The four-engine narrow-body airliner featured advanced aerodynamic and structural designs resulting in a very reliable, comfortable and efficient aircraft.

DC-8 Jetliner features the DC-8 Series 10 through to the Series 42. Every model is built over accurate factory standard plans and all feature the characteristic ‘double bubble’ fuselage, nose ‘nostrils’ and multi-pane cockpit glazing that make this aircraft so distinctive.

Many unique animations are built into each model, including retractable landing lights, opening pressure valve gate in the tail, rams and operating levers for the spoilers and flaps and,of course, the trim-adjustable flying horizontal/elevator tail assembly.

The landing gear is authentically modelled and animated with details such as springs and even detailed brake lines and wheel cylinders. Also included are the distinctive swivelling rear main undercarriage bogies which allowed the aircraft to make very tight turns when arriving at the terminals before the days of ‘drive in’ jetways.

Pre-flight flags, wheel chocks, a stewardess figure awaiting passengers at the rear door, and self-powered entry stairs all add to the authentic feel of this classic jetliner.

Cutting edge modelling and animation techniques are employed to show realistic wing flex and among the many special effects are the incredible smoke clouds and trails that these early DC-8 jets produced. You can even see reverse thrust smoke coming from the apertures in each engine when reverse thrust is applied.

The complex and authentic virtual cockpit has been built with authenticity in mind. Just the Engineer’s station alone contains hundreds of realistically operating switches and dials for monitoring the engine, hydraulic, electrical and fuel systems. Just about every switch, lever and knob is operational and functional. Flight instruments can be set up just like the real thing, with adjustment knobs and setting controls for preset speed, height course and heading.

Two very realistic (and noisy!) sound sets are included for the Pratt and Whitney JT range of engines fitted to the -10, -12, -21 and -32 models with their very distinctive ‘howling’ air start and for the Rolls-Royce Conway turbofans fitted to the -40 version. 

DOUGLAS DC-8

The design and development of the DC-8 began in the early 1950s, but Douglas still believed that the future laid more with efficient turboprop aircraft than jet airliners. This was in contrast to the view held by their competitor Boeing, which was busy developing the 707.

The DC-8 project gathered pace as Douglas sought to win the USAF tanker contract for up to 800 aircraft, but they lost out to Boeing’s 707. Despite this setback the manufacturer continued to develop the DC-8 design and it was announced to the public in July 1955.

Initial orders were good, with the DC-8 attracting a similar number of orders to the 707. The first DC-8, a -10 Series variant, rolled out of the Douglas factory in April 1958 and flew for the first time in late May, shortly after the first 707 took to the skies.

Following its maiden flight the DC-8 went on to break world records for speed, altitude, distance and payload. The aircraft finally entered service for the first time with Delta Air Lines in September 1959. A Douglas DC-8 broke the sound barrier on 21 August 1960 in a controlled dive through 41,000 feet and reached a speed of Mach 1.012 (660 mph/1,062 km/h) which it maintained for 16 seconds. The purpose of the flight was to collect data on a new wing leading-edge design, and in doing so the DC-8 became the first civilian jet airliner to go supersonic.

COCKPIT FEATURES 

  • Highly functional virtual cockpit with virtually all of the hundreds of switches, knobs and levers animated and functional. Many gauges are modelled in 3D for smooth operation.
  • Engineer and Navigator panels are included.The engineer's panel features functioning engine, hydraulic, electrical and fuel systems.
  • Full cockpit lighting with atmospheric instrument backlighting.
  • Special ‘baked’ textures have been used to present a well-used look and feel to the cockpit area and controls.
  • Avionics include full autopilot functionality from the operating period with NAV and ILS approaches, VOR and ADF receivers and displays, transponders and a full communications suite.
  • Many features have been added to help with ‘usability’ such as switches to hide the control yokes and co-pilot's seat for a better view of the instruments and preset angled views for the overhead panel, throttle quadrant and radios.
  • Numerous warning annunciators will illuminate on fault detection and a fully functional engine fire warning and protection/extinguishing system are built into the cockpit. If you get an engine fire warning, pull the fire handle and the fire will be extinguished.
  • Electrics have been authentically modelled to enable correct engine starts with ignition lock-out and over-ride functions for each engine starter.
  • Special programming code has been used to re-create the complex fuel storage and delivery systems for each engine - the authenticity is such that one can follow the procedures laid down in official flight manuals for setting up the fuel panels and levers for different situations and, of course, the correct start-up of engine 3, the first engine to be started.

MODEL

  • Specular map to give realistic light effects on the aircraft surfaces.
  • Bump mapping to give a more realistic 3D effect to aircraft liveries.
  • Realistic wing flex on all variants.
  • Custom coding ensures that the systems are faithfully reproduced in this simulation, including unique features such as spoiler ‘lock-out’ when gear is retracted.
  • Animated main-gear bogies which will rotate to reduce stress on the tyres and wheels in tight turns.
  • Special slats in the leading edges of the wings open ahead of the main flaps and the full slotted-flap system is faithfully reproduced in these models.
  • Numerous authentic animations are included such as retractable landing lights, opening pressure valve gate in the tail, rams and operating levers for spoilers, trim-adjustable flying horizontal/elevator tail assembly.
  • The landing gear is authentically modelled and animated with all the correct struts and springs and even detailed brake lines and wheel cylinders.
  • The real DC-8 has a unique way of employing engine thrust reverse whilst in flight to assist with air braking. The conventional wing spoilers are not used (only as spoilerons and only then with the gear extended). This is all simulated in DC-8 Jetliner!

VARIANTS AND LIVERIES

DC-8-10

The Series 10 was the first variant of the DC-8. It was developed for domestic service and was powered by four Pratt & Whitney JT3C-6 turbojets, each producing 13,500lbs of thrust.

  • Douglas (N8008D)

DC-8-12

The Series 12 was the first variant of the DC-8 to enter airline service. It was developed for domestic service and was powered by four Pratt & Whitney water-injected JT3C-6 engines, each producing 13,500lb of thrust.

  • Delta Air lines (N804E)
  • United Airlines (N8013U)

DC-8-21

The Series 20 introduced the more powerful Pratt & Whitney JT4A-3 turbojets which each produced 15,800lbs of thrust. This additional thrust allowed for a gross weight increase of over 10,000lb.

  • United Airlines (N8021U)
  • Eastern Air Lines (N8612)
  • Air Spain (EC-CAD)
  • National Airlines (N6572C)
  • Overseas National (N821F)

DC-8-32

The Series 30 was an upgraded airframe for use on intercontinental routes. This was achieved through the combination of the JT4A turbojets, a 30% increase in fuel capacity and a strengthened landing gear.

  • Scandinavian Airlines (SE-DBA)
  • Pan Am (N805PA)
  • Swissair (HB-IDA)
  • BIAS International (PH-DCA)
  • African Safari (5Y-ASA)

DC-8-42

The Series 40 was essentially a Series 30 fitted with 17,500lb Rolls-Royce Conway turbofan engines. These engines provided greater efficiency, and a reduction in engine noise emissions and smoke. Despite these benefits the Series 40 failed to sell in great numbers due to the reluctance of US airlines to purchase an airliner fitted with engines manufactured overseas and a desire to wait for the more advanced Pratt & Whitney JT3D turbofan which was due to be introduced.

  • Alitalia (I-DIWG)
  • CP Air (CF-CPJ)
  • Air Canada (CF-TJF)
  • Canadian Pacific (N9604Z) - the world’s first supersonic four-engine passenger plane
  • Cubana (CU-T1210)
  • Air Jamaica (6Y-JME)

FLIGHT DYNAMICS

Flight files for the project developed by real-world DC-8 engineer and tested by pilots with real-world DC-8 experience. Correct fuel systems and other engine maintenance routines are designed in.

SOUNDS

PREALSOFT - HD CITIES VIENNA FSX P3D
Douglas
Buyer Beware this scenery has problems and the developer states there is "No Fix" on their end for this. The color of the land class is very washed out and the ground, (land class) loads as you fly directly in front of your plane; it is very annoying and looks and performs bad. How he is allowed to continue to sale this is beyond me!

Very nice airport and surroundings.I think it will need a little more lighting.
RICHER SIMULATIONS - CARIBSKY: TBPB 2020 FSX P3D

Being a Concorde fan, Barbados is a MUST HAVE scenery. I had been using a freeware version for years, and I have to admit I was quite happy with it so, the obvious question is, is it worth paying for the update? The developer really deserves the price charged. Barbados is a small airport, but this version is incredibly rich in details. Its quality is second to none, so if you like to invest in high quality sceneries there is no doubt your money will be well invested. As I mentioned, I am Concorde fan and currently I only fly Concorde-X by FSLabs, which requires P3Dv3. At fist, the only surface shown was the runway and there was grass were taxiways and the terminal platform where supposed to be. I contacted the developer, exchanged a couple of emails and in less than 24 hours we solved the problem. In my case what solved the problem was leaving the default directory for the installation (the counter-intuiti-
ve "Prepar3D v4 Add-ons") for the Config tool to work correctly. Otherwise, the "patch" to convert the default P3Dv4 scenery into a P3Dv3 compatible did not work and the problem described before showed. Now that my problem is solved I am a super-happy pilot flying my Concorde in and out Barbados :-)

Since i flew to Romania last year in real life i really love the country! And i really enjoy the Addons from Aflosim such as Cluj and Bucharest. Very great detail and athmosphere and a very good pricing!!!! I would love to see Timisoara soon!!
LATINVFR - SAN DIEGO KSAN V2 FSX FSXSE
Leo
This is my second LatinVFR scenery and is completely awsome. I love how accurate is the depiction of this airport and it come with downtown San Diego too, the textures used are incredible with a good attention to details. It comes with a scenery configurator to change some elememts of the scenery like add/remove static objects, add/remove downtown San Diego and more. The FPS dont drop a all or maybe just a little bit and it runs smooth with no problem at all. Im surprise by the great performance it has on my simple HP laptop. The night textures inside the airport are really good but the night textures of the city are interesting because it doesnt look as illuminated as the default FSX/P3D textures but looks more realistic and I like it. Overall this scenery is a great scenery for KSAN and worth every penny. 100% recommended.

PERFECT FLIGHT - ULTIMATE DOUGLAS DC-3 SIMULATION FSX P3D

This appears to be a repaint of the standard model. The VC is indistinguishab-
le from the standard one and so is the model of the plane itself. Total waste of money.
FLIGHT 1 - KING AIR B200 VERSION 2 FSX P3D
Sergey
To be honest and to be quite frank, I AM VERY SORRY that I bought this product and spent so much money! I give two stars only for the appearance of the model itself, the rest remains at the level of the outdated FSX & P3Dv2 32bit! It will be very bitter if this product does not develop further without the support of the FLIGHT 1 group! I expected more!!!
