FSX Steam Edition: McDonnell Douglas DC-10™ review

About This Content

The DC-10 began its flying career in 1971 and soon proved that three engines were better than two or four! With a passenger capacity of 380 and a range of over 2,500 miles it was a revelation. Now you can fly this fantastic version of the iconic aircraft in Flight Simulator X: Steam Edition.
Just Flights DC-10 Collection HD 10-40 is part of the popular and user-friendly Just Flight F-Lite range which is designed to provide detailed, high- quality aircraft that are less demanding to fly than more complex procedural simulators. These aircraft are a significant step up from the default in terms of modelling and cockpit systems, but won't require weeks of study!
