In a very short and concise post on its Facebook page, Aeroplane Heaven have shown the first preview images of their Douglas DC-3 for MSFS. This airplane is already available for P3D, and the developers are now bringing it to the new simulator from Asobo and Microsoft.
The images that were shared depict the DC-3 during testing on the new platform. They are all only from the external model, but we can expect some sneak peeks into the interior in future updates from the developers.
It’s certainly looking very good, with a detailed fuselage that shows good textures and a lot of rivets!
If the previous version for P3D is of any indication, we can expect a pleasant and fun experience, although the complexity of the simulation is somewhat a mystery. Reviews of that previous version have been mostly critic to that lack of in-depth systems, stating that the DC-3 from Aeroplane Heavens is geared more to the casual flyer, rather than to those looking for the most accurate simulation. But the truth is this new version may change that, so let’s keep an open mind and see what the developers have in store for us!
The DC-3 needs no introduction, as it’s one of the most iconic airplanes ever, and is still being flown a lot today, with hundreds of active airplanes all over the world. It will always be a highly anticipated airplane from whoever decides to bring it to MSFS, so we will keep a close eye on this and let you know once there’s further developments.
If you’re interested to know more about the development of other classic airplanes for MSFS, you’ll be happy to know that Aeroplane Heaven is also working on the Spitfire, and the development on that front seems to be more advanced.
