Just Flight’s DC-10 Collection

Flying the “Diesel 10″…Right Into the Ground

Introduction

Just Flight's DC-10 CollectionI’ve always been a fan of tri-motor jets. Aesthetically, anyway. I can remember as a kid, driving past Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport and always seeing the towering, hulking figures of the DC-10 and the Lockheed L-1011’s belonging to Delta and American Airlines as they trundled about, looking like they’re going to eat anything that had the nerve to get too close to them.

The DC-10 is a large, intimidating aircraft. And for its bulk, it didn’t have the passenger load of the 747, but it well exceeded the capability of its nearest design competitor, the Lockheed L-1011. While the L-1011 was more expensive, and carried fewer people, it was one of the most technologically advanced airliners of its day.

It also marked the last time Lockheed ever built a passenger airliner.

The DC-10 production line was 446 aircraft. The Just Flight DC-10 Collection has liveries for just about every operator and almost every aircraft.

If It Ain’t Broke…Get a Bigger Hammer

Installation is pretty straightforward. I got the CD-version of the software and sent it to my FSX install. I was immediately rewarded by with every aircraft starting up cold, including stock ones. Thank God for the Ctrl+E command that gets things going in a hurry. I am not a ramp-start kind of guy.

An update is available on the Just Flight web site, along with a mod for INS navigation. I suggest you use both, as it fixes a few niggling issues I had at first. Also, after I installed the product, the magnification of my external views got a little weird, as in looking at the aircraft through a fishbowl. This got annoying fast.
