    Default Historic Jetliners Group

    A very useful site with downloads you may not easily find elsewhere:

    Historic Jetliners Group

    at:

    http://simviation.com//hjg/main.htm


    Check it out.
    I just downloaded many files and will start with their Caravelles.

    They also have RARE AI aircraft.

    Thanks Nick, for reminding simmers. I have many of their A/C liners. I enjoy all that I have. The detail is fantastic, if you have never download these very nice freeware A/C's consider trying them out. Kenny

    Kenny,

    Thanks again.

    I am sorry to hear you had a health problem and cannot fly anymore because of it. The sim is a good alternative I guess and will do at a pinch.

    At least you were fortunate enough to fly for real, while most simmers only fly in the sims...

    I, for one, have only flown as a passenger...but 150 flights or so...6-7 in Greece, 2 to England, 1 to Moldova, 1 to Chechoslovakia, 1 to Poland, the rest to France --all from Greece, my home--I live in Athens, the capital and was born in it.

    Yup. Love that website. I use their DC9-30 and B727-200 almost daily. I love flying the old way and not with a GPS or flight computer. I have many other aircraft from their site but those two are my favorite. The Caravelle is really good too!

    One additional comment; I also have used the HJG airplanes and like them very much. The panels, though, contain many not-obvious details and are problematic unless you follow the user manual, which can be difficult to find. I usually do a google search for it.

    Which are the planes that have problematic panels please?

    I have only installed a DC-9 and that has an aliased panel: alias=B737_400\panel

    I believe all the HJG aircraft have a very realistic panel available...not an alias to MS default, and much more complicated.

    I have the Convair 880, DC-8-50 and DC-9-30. I also have my sim defaulted to load aircraft with everything off, so I must do a complete startup.

    I found, for all three aircraft, that just using experience and intuition, it's not possible to start these aircraft. I must use a user's manual that I found via google search.

    For example, the CV880 and DC-8 must have bleed air supplied by a ground cart first before starting the first engine; remaining engines can be started by cross-bleed. It's absolutely realistic, but not something I could figure out on my own.

    Please don't misunderstand. I really love the HJG models and enjoy them. I do like the realism of the panel and associated procedures. I was just commenting that use of the manual is essential.
