Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004
Turbine Sound Studios has produced another wonderful soundpack for Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004! The soundpack is for FS2004 and represents the Boeing 757 RR in high-def.
Produced from 1981 to 2004, the Boeing 757 is a mid-sized jet airliner. It has a narrow body and twin engines and is a low-wing cantilever monoplane. It was produced in two fuselage lengths. The first was 757-200 and entered service in 1983. The second was a stretched version at 767-300, produced in 1999. Two different models were produced. A production freighter and a passenger model with a seating from a maximum of 239 in the 757-200 length and a maximum of 289 in the 767-300 length. The passenger capacity for each length depend on the cabin configuration; going from one or two classes of seating.
Loaded, the plane has a maximum range of 4,100 nautical miles (7,600 km) in the shorter length and 3,595 nautical miles (6,658 km) for the longer version. The main engine used for the 757 is the Rolls-Royce RB211. This engine made by Rolls-Royce plc and entered service in 1972. It was the first true three-spool engine, capable of generating 37,400 to 60,600 pounds-force (166 to 270 kilonewtons) thrust.
Other engines used, but not recorded for this soundpack were the Pratt & Whitney PW2037, PW2040 and PW2043. When Eastern Air Lines and British Airways put the Boeing 757 into service in 1983, it took the place of single-aisle airliners. The primary airlines that use the 757 are Delta, United, American Airlines and UPS Airlines. The airlines use the plane for short and mid-range domestic routes, shuttle services and transcontinental U.S. Flights. By October of 2004, 1,050 Boeing 757s had been produced for 54 different customers. While the 757 is still in use, most airlines have trended towards smaller jetliners.
The engine sounds for the soundpack are recorded in high definition, allowing for maximum clarity and detail for the simulation.
Turbine Sound Studios proudly presents the Boeing 757 RR soundpack for FS2004 recorded in HD High definition.
As a bonus in this product, we have included HD video footage of several Boeing 757 during takeoff.
The Boeing 757 is a mid-size, narrow-body twin-engine jet airliner manufactured by Boeing Commercial Airplanes.
Passenger versions of the twinjet have a capacity of 186 to 289 persons and a maximum range of 3,100 to 3,900 nautical miles (5,700 to 7,200 km), depending on variant and cabin configuration.
The 757 has been produced in two fuselage lengths: the original 757-200 entered service in 1983, followed by the stretched 757-300 in 1999.
A production freighter version, the 757-200PF, has been sold along with a combi model, the 757-200M.
Passenger models have also been converted to the 757-200SF cargo specification.
The Rolls-Royce RB211 is a family of high-bypass turbofan engines made by Rolls-Royce plc and capable of generating 37,400 to 60,600 pounds-force (166 to 270 kilonewtons) thrust. Originally developed for the Lockheed L-1011 (TriStar), it entered service in 1972 and was the only engine to power this aircraft type. Although the costs of development forced Rolls-Royce Limited into bankruptcy and nationalisation by the British government, the company survived and the RB211 became the first true three-spool engine, which also turned Rolls-Royce from a small player in the airline industry into a global competitor.
All enginesounds are recorded in TSS HD audioquality for maximum clarity and detail, then compiled to meet the FS2004 sound specification.
