Turbine Sound Studios is very proud to present to you an aviation legend, the Douglas DC-3.

This soundpack features material recorded live by TSS from DC-3 aircraft.

A preview of this soundpack can be seen below:

Crank the sound up and hear the sound of Pratt and Whitney Twin Wasp's at either side of you as you push that vintage throttle forward.

The DC-3 is as much an Aviators icon today, as it was a innovation when it was first brought out, we hope that our soundpack will be able to do it sufficient justice, and we really think it does, we are sure you will agree.

The DC-3 was engineered by a team led by chief engineer Arthur E. Raymond, and first flew on December 17, 1935 (the 32nd anniversary of the Wright Brothers flight at Kitty Hawk). The aircraft was the result of a marathon phone call from American Airlines CEO Cyrus Smith to Donald Douglas requesting the design of an improved successor to the DC-2. The amenities of the DC-3 (including sleeping berths on early "DST" -- Douglas Sleeper Transport -- models and an in-flight kitchen) popularized air travel in the United States. With only three refueling stops, eastbound transcontinental flights across America taking approximately 15 hours became possible. Westbound trips took 17 hours 30 minutes due to typical prevailing headwinds - still a significant improvement over the competing Boeing 247. Before the arrival of the DC-3, such a trip would entail short hops in commuter aircraft, during the day, coupled with train travel overnight.

Early U.S. airlines like United, American, TWA and Eastern ordered over 400 DC-3s. These fleets paved the way for the modern American air travel industry, quickly replacing trains as the favored means of long-distance travel across the United States. Piedmont Airlines operated DC-3s from 1948 to 1963. One of Piedmont's DC-3s, operated by the Carolinas Aviation Museum, continues to fly to air shows today and has been used in various movies. Both Delta and Continental Airlines operate "commemorative" DC-3s.

During World War II, many civilian DC-3s were drafted for the war effort and nearly 10,000 military versions of the DC-3 were built, under the designations C-47, C-53, R4D and Dakota. Peak production of the type was reached in 1944 with 4853 being delivered. The armed forces of many countries used the DC-3 and its military variants for the transport of troops, cargo and wounded. Licensed copies were built in Japan as Showa L2D (487 aircraft) and in the USSR as the Lisunov Li-2 (between 2200 and 4900 aircraft, per varying sources).

After the war, thousands of surplus C-47s were converted to civil service and became the standard equipment of almost all the world's airlines, remaining in front-line service for many years. The ready availability of ex-military examples of this cheap, easily-maintained aircraft (it was both large and fast by the standards of the day) jump-started the worldwide, post-war air transport industry.

Douglas had developed an improved version, with a greater cargo capacity and a different wing, which it attempted to sell during this time frame but with all these surplus aircraft, the Super DC-3 did not sell in the civil market. The US Navy had 100 of their early R4Ds converted to Super DC-3 standard as the R4D-8, later C-117D.

Numerous attempts were made to design a "DC-3 replacement", over the next three decades (including the very successful Fokker Friendship) but no single type could match the versatility, rugged reliability and economy of the DC-3 and it remained a significant part of air transport systems, well into the 1970s. Even today, over 70 years after the DC-3 first flew, there are still small operators with DC-3s in revenue service and as cargo planes. The common saying among aviation buffs and pilots is that "the only replacement for a DC-3 is another DC-3." The aircraft's legendary ruggedness is enshrined in the lighthearted description of the DC-3 as "a collection of parts flying in loose formation." Its ability to take off and land on grass or dirt runways also makes it popular in developing countries, where the runways may not always be a paved surface.

Some of the more common uses of the DC3 have been aerial spraying, freight transport, passenger service, military transport and sport skydiving shuttling.

ISLAND CREATIONS - LA GOMERA AERIAL IMAGERY MSFS
Christopher
I have been "flying" sims for over 20 years...FSX, the two X-Planes and now MSFS and I have never seen a better scenery addon to any platform. The cliffs, rock formations, trees, bushes and other vegetation, the roads and villages all look like actual photos. Even if you are not a fan of Canary Island flying, this is worth purchasing just to fly over for the fun of it. Island Creations really nailed this one "spot on". Best scenery I have ever seen. GET IT.
REDWING SIM - GENEVE-COINTRIN AIRPORT - LSGG MSFS
Pierrick
Great scenery in global, just lacking on the aeroclub side. The restaurant of thhe aeorclub is realy medium, the "bubbles" at the aeroclub are overlaped by generic hangars and there is even a building missing. Since last update, there is also 2 controls towers, wich is bad obviously.
SIMCREATIONS - PARIS LE BOURGET FSX P3D3-5
Yannick
I think we can all agree that Paris - Le Bourget is one of the most renowned airfields in the entire world, not least because of its famous airshow. Having been to the show myself, I was really pleased to see that Simcreations took it upon themselves to provide us simmers with a rendition of this iconic airfield. Generally speaking, I must say that flying into the airfield feels nice enough. I mean, the ground textures are okay, most, if not all, of the iconic buildings, have been replicated to some extent, and even the Ariane rockets sit where they should. Also, the scenery benefits from a current and up-to-date airport layout and, judging by screenshots, seems to be the developer's most comprehensive project yet. However-
, this is where the pleasantries end. Some of the taxiway textures just seem to use plain default textures. Also, most of the buildings do not benefit from high-resolution textures. The use of default elements, including that of default tank cars and other vehicles placed throughout the scenery, makes the scenery come across as a bit dull overall. I must say that given the exciting nature of this airfield, I expected the developer to have put a bit more effort into providing us with a faithful recreation of the airport. This is especially so considering the associated price tag. Overall, if you desire flying in and out of the most frequented business jet airfield in Europe, I would say go for it and give it a try. This is especially so, given that this is the most accurate and detailed, albeit only, recreation of the field that is currently available. However, if you buy it with the expectations of it being up to par with some of Paris's other airports, then you're bound to be disappointed.
LIONHEART CREATIONS - TRINIDAD TB-21 GT MSFS EDITION
Milan
The 4.1 update is a game changer in terms of fps (no more low fps as with pre-v4 version). It is a solid aircraft reflecting well its real life counterpart. A definite part of my virtual hangar. The devs are also actively working on the title (check the update history) unlike some other devs, which deserves recognition on its own.
SAMSCENE - CHONGQING MAGIC CITY 8D MSFS
Willem
Very beautiful scenery, well worth it. Especially because the airport is also made by CHONGQING. In the asobo scenery only 2 runways have been made, there are no taxiways, terminals, and parking places. With this version you have the full airport with all the trimmings. I went there 10 years ago, and we landed on RW 2L RW 3 didn't exist then. The terminal where we got off is exactly as it is in this scenery. That Monorail has also been made, you can see it driving through a building, I sat there and it just as it is. Am very satisfied. Zeer Mooie scenery, zeker de moeite waard. Speciaa-
l omdat ook de vlieghaven van CHONGQING gemaakt is. In de asobo scenery zijn er enkel 2 startbanen gemaakt, er zijn geen taxiways, terminals, en parking plaatsen. Met deze versie heb je de voledige luchthaven met alles erop en eraan. Ik ben daar 10 jaar geleden geweest, en we zijn geland op RW 2L RW 3 bestond toen nog niet. De terminal waar we uitgestapt zijn is juist zoals het is in deze scenery. Ook die Monorail is gemaakt, je ziet die door een building rijden, Heb daar ingezeten en het juist zoals het is. Ben heel tevreden. 非常-
