The C47 had many names and countless functions. Known as the
Skytrain, Skytrooper, Dak, Dakota, Tabby, Spooky, Puff the magic
dragon, the Doug and the most endearing the Gooney Bird.
More pictures are available for viewing on Mike Wilsons' site. He has painted a number of liveries, including Airfast Indonesia, Aigle Azur and Duggy. He also
offers many high quality aircraft both free and low cost payware plus links to other quality sites.
This aircraft is fully 3D and does not have an option for a 2D panel. A joystick with one or more hat-switch's is highly recommended. I would recommend a
field of view set to at least 55 to 60 degrees within the Sim. To download a tutorial in PDF format on joystick setup click here
