I wasn’t really planning on making this a three part series, but based on the response to the two first parts I feel the need to address some of the comments I have received and tidy up a few loose ends, because the big elephant is still in the room.
Let's take a look at the overhead panel! "Hell yeah!", I hear you say. It is after all the nerve center of the aircraft. Nothing goes in the aircraft until you consult the overhead panel first.
Dovetail Games. The latest contender trying to make move to take over the flightsim throne from FSX. Can they do it? Do we even care? I think we should care. And I think they can.
"Verdict? Outstanding. Welcome back Espen, we would like to see more of this quality of work from you. There are so many planes from this era that flight simulation developers have forgotten and which would be serious fun were they released with versions of the training center included. I have banged the drum for a high quality payware Constellation in the past, but there are so many other possibilities, starting with a 'Freight Dog' version of the Fokker 50 that Espen cut his teeth on as freeware so long ago. Just go out and buy the Super 80 - I can't think of a better investment to make to while away the months until FSX arrives and when it does, you might just find you like this old plane so much you want to stay with FS2004 until the patch arrives."
