As one of the very first wide-body airliners, its only right that aircraft enthusiasts the world over are able to witness some of the finest aerial creations in our time in a simulation environment. It’s hard to top the realism provided by the Microsoft Flight Simulator series, but when you add in the community-created content like this DC-10 Collection, you get to really experience the game through an entirely new lens. This takes every little feature and fact about the brilliant DC-10 and creates something truly remarkable, providing you with the most realistic version of this aircraft ever provided in a virtual environment.
Designed by the well-known Commercial Level Simulations, this brings the most authentic quality possible to the series to give you something truly remarkable. It’s made to be user-friendly, though, despite the immense attention to detail. There has been a lot of striving to find the highest possible quality of design and texture quality within the simulation experience, but this really takes every little piece of detail and brings it to life in a way that is hard to replicate elsewhere.
Featuring three engines and a center engine positioned within the vertical tail, this is an aircraft with an immense array and variety of power. Even today, these are used all across the globe to deliver passengers and freight transport for many different companies. Technology may have come a long way since the DC-10 was first released, but it still stands up in comparison to many of the contemporary aircraft out there.
The aircraft was first launched in August 1970, and in the 40+ years of service since it has been one of the most important in the history of aircraft. Although it had safety concerns when first on the market, these were quickly corrected and today it’s still one of the safest aircraft up there in the skies despite its age.
