    Review: Virtavia - C-17A Globemaster III

    It's still worthwhile to look at some older add-ons, especially ones that the publisher continues to update, such as the C-17A Globemaster III for FSX from Virtavia. This is a big plane, but has performance allowing operations from very small fields, making for some interesting flying, so reports reviewer Michael Pook.
