      Fortunately, I bought this plane as soon as it was available from PMDG, since then it has become my favorite. Thanks to PMDG for filling this gap in vintage airliners for around six months. I just amazed that it took so long for FSMS to make it available in the market ...

      I also bought it when it first came out. It is a fantastic plane and a bit of a bear to land if thing are not setup correctly. It is a bunch of fun to fly for sure.

      The decision to go onto the MSFS Marketplace is up to the developer, in this case, PMDG. They probably just wanted to get any major bugs out without having to through the hassle of updating it through the marketplace, also they pay a percentage to Asobo for the MP transactions, so they sold it direct to those that wanted it as soon as possible so they could pocket all the money from the early adopters. Now that it is on MP they will sell more copies I am sure but they won't make as much per transaction, and that is most likely why they waited so long to put it on MP, it was a PMDG choice to not be there.

      I purchased the DC-6 through the MSFS Marketplace, but cannot find the manual anywhere. I've looked in my Community folder, and it's not there. Any ideas?
