TWA Cargo - new mission
« on: December 13, 2020, 11:37:22 AM »
I primarily fly in P3D4; however my two favorite airplanes of all time, the Captain Sim 707 and 727 series, are not available for 64 bit, so to use them I fly them in FSX Steam.

I recently stumbled across the fact that the Thomas Ruth 727 series had been upgraded to FSX, tried it out and found it will work in P3D4 so I gave it a try.

This is a fictitious repaint of a 727-200 cargo bird using the provided paint kit. It is posed for takeoff at Willow Run (KYIP) west of Detroit. It is a pretty good freight locaton, and in reality is a base for Kalitta Air Cargo. You may recall they provided some crucial airlift of US citizens out of China when this whole COVID crisis came on stage. A few of my AI Kalitta planes are in the background.

I am about to fly a second flight today with this airplane on the same route I used this AM in FSX-SE with my Captain Sim 727-200 freighter. I want to  to cross check performance. I already have done a little tweaking of cruise performance fuel flow vs speed and weight at altitude.

The VC cockpit is VERY good for freeware. However, engine N1/N2 and EPR gauge readings are kinda crazy.

Brian -

I got the whole huge bunch - all versions - here. Takes a time to download for free, but well worth it
