Review: C188 AGTruck From Alabeo
The C188 AGTruck from Alabeo gives X-Plane pilots
the chance to fly a somewhat unusual light plane. According to
reviewer Dominic Smith, Alabeo have outdone themselves with the C188
AG Truck. They have managed to create an aircraft which has
character, depth and style all rolled into one. Fantastic modeling of
the exterior and interior with a truly satisfying flight model make
this an aircraft to be flown and flown.
