Dear friends,

 

 

Icarus Development Team is introducing our aircraft under development: Legendary IDT DC-9!

 

"The DC-9 is one of the most legendary airliners ever built. It was designed for frequent and short flights, for millitary and civil opperations. Accommodating from 90 to 135 passengers, was the workhorse for many airlines worldwide".

 

Some of the features of the aircraft:

 

- Realistic flight model, accurate flight behaviour and systems according the original technical     manuals

- Plug-in driven systems

- HD resolution realistic textures

- Full operational 3D cockpit

- Hundreds of animations

- Many liveries  

 

The first release will be about the DC-9-30 variant, since it's the most widely used. There will be feature upgrades that will include more variations (like the -40, used mostly by SAS), plus the military version (known as C-9).

 

Here are some first views of the aircraft:

I love it! one of my favourite faithful oldies. 
 

Is it posible to change the landing gears to a bird like feet though? ;) or duck for the float variant :)

GREAT!  I've been looking for a good DC9 for a long time for XP.

I used to fly a real one many years ago.  I love the old gal...flies like a sports car.

Really looking forward to this release.  Thank you.

Out of curiosity is there any signifigance to the 4 orange paint spalshes on the bottom right corner of your first 6 photos? Also if there is why do they slowly fade away as you go down the page?

Dear mj12345 good notice! Was a test for the photos frame. Nothing significant. And because the kind of plane is retro, then we connect the ageing effect to the whole project.

YAY, a DC-9, hope this project doesn't go dead like the rest of 'em. Keep up the great work! Looking forward to this aircraft

Thanks guys a lot! We are pushing hard on that, although we know that is going to be a long project to get it really right!

 

 

In the next days a few more screenshot will be published in "clay-rendering" so you can see more of the modelling details. Another thing I would like to address is the cockpit arrangement. From all the research we've made, probably there are so many different arrangements and equipment variables as the number of aircrafts produced! I will give you some examples with the next post.

 

Stay tuned!
