Product information "DC-8 Jetliner 50-70"

This FSX and Prepar3D collection covers the short fuselage -50 series up to the ultra-long stretched -73 series and includes three distinctive cockpit variations from the classic round-dial analogue version through a part-modernised version to the modern 'glass cockpit' variant in the later models.

This collection of the later series of DC-8 models, complete with 20 high-resolution liveries from around the globe, combines all the very latest modelling and texturing techniques with accurate flight dynamics and realistic sounds to bring you an authentic simulation of these iconic aircraft!

Features include:

  • Pratt and Whitney and CFM-56 engines on the later versions, all modelled with their own unique reverse thrust operation.
  • Many unique animations, 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.
  • Authentically modelled and animated landing gear with details such as springs, detailed brake lines and wheel cylinders. Earlier models than the -62 feature the distinctive swivelling rear main undercarriage bogies.
  • Pre-flight flags, wheel chocks, cargo loading scissor lift, air start truck and self-powered entry stairs all add to the authentic feel of this classic jetliner.
  • Realistic wing flex and many special effects which include the incredible smoke clouds and trails from the early DC-8 jets and reverse thrust smoke coming from the apertures in each engine when reverse thrust is applied.
  • The complex virtual cockpit has been built with authenticity in mind - 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.
  • A very realistic (and noisy!) sound set is included for the Pratt and Whitney JT range of engines fitted to the -50, -60 and EC-24A models with their distinctive ‘howling’ air start and another custom set is provided for the quieter CFM engine used on the -70 series.

  • The -70 series has its own 'glass cockpit' with PFD, MFD, FMC and other modern equipment

Special effects:
Special effects have been created to reproduce the incredible smoke trails the earlier DC-8 jets produced. These are, of course, far less noticeable in the CFM 56 engine versions!. Correct reverse thrust smoke has also been modelled and can be seen streaming from the apertures in each engine when reverse thrust is applied.

When using the fuel dump facility, the dumped fuel can be seen streaming out of the wing vents.
