McDonnell Douglas DC-10-30

This is a project to develop the McDonnell Douglas DC-10-30 widebody transport and its deriratives for FlightGear Flight Simulator.

It is effectively frozen in beta stage, as I have little time or motivation to devote to big projects like this. The aircraft currently features a complete model, FDM, and a highly realistic autopilot. The KC-10A also features working air-to-air refueling over multiplayer.

Contributions and pull requests, of course, are welcome.

The latest DC-10-30 is pushed out to fgdata before the next FlightGear release.

Credits

FDM and model made by myself, Ryan Miller.

Special thanks to:

  • Ampere Hardraade for the internal GE CF6C-50 jet engine model.
  • Syd Adams for the electrical system, the HSI, and for just being one of the best aircraft developers in FlightGear. :)
  • Heiko Schulz for the altimeter from the 737-300.
  • Csaba Halasz ("Jester") and Anders Gidenstam ("AndersG") for assistance and various pointers over FlightGear IRC.
  • Thomas Ito-Haigh ("Armchair Ace") for the Northwest Airlines livery, the Japan Air Systems livery, the Canadien International livery, and the engine fandisk texture.
  • The (many) authors of the KC-135E for making air-to-air refueling possible in FlightGear, and for the tanker boom model which was heavily adapted for the KC-10A.
  • The awesome folks at Global Virtual Air (formerly Atlas Virtual Airlines) for supporting me during this project!
  • Many others for several amazing liveries!

Other DC-10 projects

Isaias Prestes is also developing (or was developing) a DC-10 for FlightGear.

My model is superior in every way, shape, or form, and is also part of the official FlightGear proejct.
