    HJG Xmas Website Update -- Two Twin-Jet Treats

    HJG (Historic Jetliners Group) have pleasure announcing its Christmas releases, the group's sixth web site update for the 2017 year during which it has released well over 300 new and upgraded files.

    It's customary for HJG to conclude each calendar year with a major web site update composed of either an abundance of product or a new release...or even surprise or two.

    This year and as part of its Christmas web site update the group is doing all of the above...as follows:

    1. "New" B737-300, B737-400, and B737-500 models have been released after precisely a year in development .... supported by more than 70 high quality textures featuring operators from all corners of the globe; customized FDE; and authentic "new" CFM-56 sound packs by Benoit Plamondon.
    2. An impressive "new" simulation of the AMD Mercure 100 by Mario Noriega has also been released following more than two years of development work...supported by superbly featured 2D and VC panels; eight textures representing each livery ever supported by this classic French jetliner; customized FDE; and an authentic "new" P&W JT8D sound pack also by Benoit Plamondon.

    But .... HJG's news of Christmas spirit and cheer doesn't end there.

    Also included within this release are "upgraded textures" for DC-8-55F...featuring the classic late 60's/early 70's color schemes of both Dutch and US carriers; A DC-9-15 resplendent in the identity of a premier Seattle based US football team; and...a selection of DC-10-30's in the liveries of no longer existent but historic French operators...including an impressive hybrid liveried logo-jet...and three aircraft once operated on behalf of the national carrier of a major Caribbean nation.

    This HJG Christmas web site update is composed of over 100 files.

    For more information concerning these latest releases please refer to the following official announcement:

    In addition to the content of this Christmas web site update HJG has, since August, also released 2 other "not externally announced" web site updates featuring yet more "new" release and "upgraded" textures for its classic B707, B720, B727, CARAVELLE, CV-880, CV-990, CONCORDE, DC-8, DC-8, DC-10, L-1011, and MD-80/90 virtual flightline for MSFS:

      Not quite the "classics of the classic series" .... but .... we're getting there .... s-l-o-w-l-y .... and the B737-300/400/500 are often now referred to as "CLASSICS" today anyway

      These are just stepping stones .... to get the type established
