Flight - DC-6B Legends of Flight
The DC-6B was the epitome of the radial piston engine passenger aircraft.
Powerful, noisy and smoky on engine start-up, the DC-6B was flown all over the
world and opened up air travel on every continent. Originally designed in 1944
as the XC-112 military transport aircraft, the DC-6B was reworked into a
civilian aircraft in order to compete with Lockheed’s Constellation. The
aircraft was a true success story, with some of the 700 aircraft that were built
still in service today, predominantly in cargo roles.
The DC-6B was also used heavily by the United States Air Force and Navy, known
as the C-118B or VC-118 in military service, even serving as Air Force One.
Developed by the classic airliner experts at Aeroplane Heaven, DC-6B Legends of
Flight was built exclusively for Flight Simulator X. Fully functional virtual
cockpits, detailed passenger cabins and numerous exterior animations make this a
true legend of flight!
