More Goodies from Historic Jetliners Group

Post by FlyTexas » 26 Oct 2017, 14:18

HJG have uploaded some new additions to their website. http://simviation.com//hjg/ . Included in the update is the quite handsome G-DCIO painted by Tony Madge himself. :thumbsup:

Update: It seems that G-DCIO was somewhat of a celebrity back in her day. :lol:

Thank you sooo much for all the Christmas goodies, Mark! :welldone: You and your crew have really outdone yourselves. :) The bevy of 737's are great, and Mario's (superb) Mercure was a complete surprise. Very much looking forward to the 737-100's and 737-200's. :excited:

edit: Just saw the new Delta 737-300 repaint by Jim (Mr. Delta) Campisi. Jim just made my day. :lol: :thumbsup:

Many thanks for the update, Mark! The Mercure has me salivating! The panel/VC in particular look amazing in the videos. Can't wait to d/l and give it a try....then I'm off to download some French scenery for those short-short-short haul flights...the only ones the Mercure was apparently capable of! :lol:

Unusually for them an FSX model with a VC of the Mercure! I am enjoying that at the moment. :thumbsup:

"THANKS" guys .... for the positive feedback .... always appreciated :)
You and your team
Actually .... not my team .... since I'm just "a humble worker" behind the façade of the group and really only represent and assist its internal organizing :)
those short haul flights .... the only ones the Mercure was apparently capable of!
A respectable range (up to around 800-900 miles .... still well short of that of the B737-100/200 and DC-9-10/20/30 though) can be realized .... provided one reduces payload in order to promote more fuel .... see my flying guides for this simulation as linked within the HJG website announcement :)
