      Looks like this beautiful jet age bird has finally been polished and its niggles sorted out!
      Just one question. Can anyone tell me whether the broken EPR simulation has been fixed? These jetliners predated the era of autothrottles and so proper thrust management using EPR settings is key to accurate operation in all flight regimes.

      If you purchased this aircraft from JF, forget about the update, it will not be available!

      Will this version work with P3Dv2.5? I see on the Captain sim website they have a FSX "base"version and a P3D "base" version. I'd like to pick it up from FSpilotshop but it is a "Pro" version. Not sure what I need for P3D. Thanks

      Captain Sim is currently not letting anyone else sell the P3D version so the version at the FS Pilot Shop is only the FSX version.

      Tried to install this today, disappointingly, FSX exits automatically when the aircraft is selected.

      Actually the fact is that CaptainSim Broke the plane with the 2.6 update that will not allow you to use it in P3DV2. It used to work. You could install it with the migration tool and then it would work. I still have the last version so I still have it in P3DV2. All they did was break it on purpose so they could sell 2 versions. Trust me, I wrote them a nasty letter about it.

      If you can find version 2.4 that will still install using the migration tool.
