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

A professionally produced stereo sound set is matched to the different engine types: the Pratt and Whitney JT range of engines of the -10, -20 and -30 with their very distinctive ‘howling’ air start, and another authentic set for the Rolls-Royce Conways on the -40 version.

EFFECTS

Special effects have been created to reproduce the incredible smoke trails these early DC-8 jets produced. Correct reverse thrust smoke has also been modelled and can be seen streaming from the apertures in each engine when reverse thrust is applied.

JENNASOFT - LONDON GATWICK P3DV4 AND FSX
keith harvey
I reviewed this, when it was released as a 3 star product The concerns I had about this scenery have all been addressed by the 1.15 update This is now a genuine 5 star product. Goo-
d representation of the airport (which I know well) and amazing performance, given the size and location of the airport. Gre-
at work. Keit-

PREALSOFT - HD CITIES - CASABLANCA FSX P3D
Ken McVie
This transforms the look and feel of Casablanca airport for P3D by Prealsoft. On takeoff to the west, the city is presented in amazing detail with the port and all key landmarks modelled well. Howeve-
r, I am a bit annoyed with Prealsoft for bringing out a combined Casablanca airport & city package not long after I purchased the airport on its own. Had I waited a few more weeks, I could have purchased the combined package more cheaply than buying the two separately (which is what I did). So, ths alone has put me off buying anymore Prealsoft airport products in the future.
MK-STUDIOS - DUBLIN P3D4
Peter Bull
Fantastic scenery as always! Such a superb company with excellent customer service and great airports. Thanks so much MK Studios!! :)
FLIGHT SIMULATOR INNOVATIVE ADDONS - FLIGHT SIMULATOR FIRST OFFICER 777 EDITION
Paul Murphy
I started with the PMDG 737 version of this software and liked it so much I took advantage of the recent Black Friday sales and also bought this one and the Qualitywings 787 app. So far they have all worked flawlessly. The programme works just like FS2Crew but without having to bind buttons etc. Voice control is also an option, but I haven't tried that yet. FSFO allows you to delegate as much or as little control as you want to the co-pilot and is very easy to set up. Just click a few checkboxes hit the start button and away you go. The FO also makes weather based announcements to the cabin, even to the point where on landing he tells them to put their jackets on because it's cold or raining! I can't wait for the PMDG 747 version to come out. :) It also helps that the Dev is very responsive and helpful.
CARENADO - DO228 100 HD SERIES FSX P3D
thomas holzinger
The model and textures are simply great, as well the immersion in the VC and in the virtual cabin. The engine sound is ok, even the start-up sequence seems too short. The flight dynamics seems reasonable. The model has the Carenado usual animations which looks great. Unfortunately there is a major bug in regard to the stab trim indication which is reversed when the instrument lights are switched on.

The best tiger Moth on the market. I love it! Matthias
JUSTSIM - DÜSSELDORF AIRPORT EDDL - V.2 FOR P3D V4.4+
Robin Plate
I can not recommend this update. To ask for money for this content is bold. The PBR textures are good, yes. New parking positions too. But that you have not even implemented the new advertising on the jetways is just cheeky. There are sceneries where such updates appear regularly and free of charge! Conclusion: Those who already own the old version, should despite the update price, think hard about whether it is necessary to buy this update because the content for the price leaves much to be desired.
MFSG - PERTH INTL AIRPORT YPPH 2019 FSX P3DV4 FS2004
