      Description

      Manufacturer's Description

      This great new collection of DC-6B passenger airliners includes the Intercontinental four-window model and the five-window Domestic day plane variant both with and without radar and propeller spinners. Pilots can enjoy high quality 3D virtual cockpits, ten stunning liveries, custom flight dynamics, a high fidelity sound set for the distinctive Pratt & Whitney Double Wasp engines and a comprehensive manual with flight tutorial.The DC-6B was the epitome of the radial piston engine passenger aircraft. Powerful, noisy and smoky on engine start-up, the DC-6B was flown all over the world and opened up air travel on every continent. Originally designed in 1944 as the XC-112 military transport aircraft, the DC-6B was reworked into a civilian aircraft in order to compete with Lockheed’s Constellation. The aircraft was a true success story, with some of the 700 aircraft that were built still in service today, predominantly in cargo roles.The DC-6B was also used heavily by the United States Air Force and Navy, known as the C-118B or VC-118 in military service, even serving as Air Force One.Developed by the classic airliner experts at Aeroplane Heaven, DC-6B Legends of Flight was built exclusively for Flight Simulator X. Fully functional virtual cockpits, detailed passenger cabins and numerous exterior animations make this a true legend of flight!
