The british classics in their own. I have had the trident for a while, and it became my favorite plane in FS. This night, I downloaded the VC10 and is as good as I was expecting. Best panels, best flight dinamics, best documetation about the plane, easy to install... great!!!

I agree completely. Before I got the PMDG 737 and 747, the VC-10 was my aircraft of choice. Superb virtual cockpit and I like the dual mode autopilot; realistic or "standard" FS. Performing an autoland in thick fog at night in Reykjavik was breathtaking. I'd got down the glideslope to about 100 ft and couldn't see a thing. I was coming to the conclusion that the whole thing had screwed up and was just about to go around, or even abort the flight before I ploughed into a building, when the centreline suddenly appeared in the beam of the landing lights. Touched down sweetly with the sweat pouring off me and my heart going at about 120 bpm! Yes, you can do that in a modern aircraft but doing it with the 50s/60s technology made it all the more eerie.
It was very difficult to give any other aircraft a go till I got the PMDG offerings. I've got the Trident but it'll take a lot of relearning after having become so familiar with the modern Boeing systems.
