FSX: Northwoods Cargo CYHT to PAYA First Flight
« on: May 16, 2016, 04:31:57 AM »
Had to hitch a ride over to Haines Junction, YT to pick up our DC-3 that we got a great deal on, repaint included and she is a nice dependable old girl.  Fell in love with her as soon as I got her engines spinning.
We got lucky and was offered this great classic from a friend of a friend who i guess ran up some gambling debts at the poker tables and well lets just say his problem is now our fortune.
This is the first flight of our cargo outfit based in Yakutat.  Just a one plane operation at the moment and mainly running cargo between Whitehorse, YT and the coast.  Will look to expand on that though as much as I love flying this old girl.

Was a nice day taking off out of Haines.  I was running late so didnt get a chance to record the METAR.



Climbing out of Haines





Climbing through the mountains looking at the glaciers as we climb.  Winds are pretty calm.



Getting into the mountains now.  Snow snow snow





About halfway on our pass through the mountain heading SW.  Winds picking up a bit.





Coming out of the mountains now, can see the coast ahead. Winds picking up quite a bit now.





Turned on approach to Yakutat and ummmm where did the airport go? Yikes! Fog and clouds and totally obscured the airport and winds are quite strong right to left now. This is going to get interesting.



Just in time the runway shows itself through the clouds.  Wheww!  My new love just might get me home safe.



Touchdown at Yakutat!  That was hairy!



Safe and sound back home.



God i missed this!

Love the DC-3, great pictures! My Dad flew the R4D in the Marines in WWII (the naval version of the DC-3). There is even an R4D on flyawaysimulations website, but I haven't tried it out.



And if you've got money to burn, you can read all about the C-47 / R4D in the Pacific Theater (I didn't burn my money yet, but am thinking about it).

Thats great man.
I love the DC-3/C-47. The Gooney Bird was one of the all time great planes.

I have the the MAAM DC-3/C-47 and the Justflight DC-3/C-47 both and while they are both payware planes this one I am flying now is THE best and its totally freeware.
Made by a guy named Manfred. The guys over at Buffalo Airways use it and its been "signed off" on by a few real DC-3 pilots as being the most realistic DC-3 for FSX.

I modified the VC a little as there was a little too much green for me but its a nice modernized cockpit in terms of instruments with a couple Garmins added to it like they do in real life now.

Let me know if you want it and I will upload it to Dropbox.

I am totally in love with it.

For anyone who might want this DC-3 I have uploaded it to my dropbox.

This is the base plane with the Buffalo Airways skin and VC improvements, plus a little improvement I made just in the color of the VC.
Install is pretty easy but let me know if you have any problems.
