Looking over the shoulder at the FE station I see he has gone to fetch a cup of coffee, or perhaps check to see that are cargo pallets are still secure.

The DF727 comes with the nice addition of a functional Flight Line Wx500 weather radar. With building storms located at the mid-point of our flight (near Boise, ID) and darkening skies I flip the switch and behold the precipitation echoes strung out in front of us in a line. Being a cargo only operator we can take a few bumps so we try to pick a soft spot and bore ahead.

Off to our left a towering cumulonimbus flickers with lightning as we skirt around the south side of it.

Another look at the detailed and fully functional virtual cockpit; all switches and knobs work just as they do in the 2D pit (with the exception of the fire handles and the FE panels).

I searched the manual, but couldn’t find a reference to exactly when fuel heat should be selected on, but noting the cold temperature of the fuel I select the fuel heaters on.

The DF727 (and the real 727) is a beautiful sight in the air. You’ll find yourself going to the external view to pan around and marvel at the clean lines and beautiful 3D model over and over again.
