Failure simulation. This is what in my opinion takes the DC-9 Classic, and all other addons that includes such a feature, to the next level. Usually when you simulate a system in an aircraft, you simulate ON or OFF in a normal state. With failure simulation a system can also be simulated ON or OFF in a failed state. While OFF is usually OFF regardless of state, ON and failed at the same time is where it can get really busy real fast on the flight deck.
Today I went plane spotting. I haven't done that in ages, so it was time. Plane spotting is a great pastime. It's fun and relaxing. Besides flight simulation and aviation, I also have a passion for photography. Plane spotting is a great way to combine those two interests!
Just recently came across an article on the Internet that detailed the differences between the various DC-9 models, as well as the MD-80 series, the MD-90 and B717. I thought it was a very interesting article and I wanted to share it with you.
"It is without a doubt that the Coolsky plane is one of the best aircraft addon for beginners. Its intuitive panel setup and amazingly helpful Super 80 Center with Integrated Cockpit Training System are for sure a treasure trove for those not familiar with jetliner (and MD-80!) procedures. As a result, I highly recommend this plane for beginners, or those that are simply not at all familiar with this type."
