    1930's German Aircraft - Heinkel HE 51

    I fired up the old flight sim (more like reinstalled, tweaked, downloaded various addons, etc) "Flight Simulator X" (released in 2006). This still has countless free and payware add-ons including this nice free Heinkel HE 51 from the 1930's). 'Steam' games also has a version which would be easier to get working then old disks for Windows XP I suppose. I was flying around the north coast of Washington state so not realistic (could have put it somewhere in Germany or Austria but liked where I was)

    First flown in 1933 and then into production for some years but basically obsolete by the mid-late 30's (being outclassed by the Messerschmitt Bf 109 ny the late 1930's).

    Anyone into flight sims (FSX?) ... this aircraft can be downloaded.

    The only flight sim I've played is the old IL-2 Sturmovik combat sim - and it's myriad of current modifications - and the player base has included so many great old birds like this. For the older biplanes I like the predecessor to the Stuka- the Henschel 123.

    I have IL-2 1946 on Steam but don't have it currently installed. I was thinking of reinstalling it and seeing what kind of add-on aircraft there are (I found a site with tons ... but I'd have to figure out how to install them.

    Since the game is now public domain, it's grown by leaps and bounds in the hands of mere mortals. If I remember correctly, the primo site I used to get all the game downloads and new aircraft and skins was mission4today.com

    I'll check it out.

    I did find this one just today.

    I'll see if I install it again. I'm not sure if I'm into the combat aspect much any more ... just flying around looking at the scenery LOL

    I used to fly this in MS Flight Simulator. I have more time in this 727 simulator than I do in the Cessna 152, 172RG, and 177RG combined.

    That's a serious setup! ... Did you assemble this yourself? It looks like it is actually the flight deck from an old B727 ... or maybe this was a clubs simulator rig.

    That's impressive!

    What do you fly now?


    ----------------

    I've been pondering altering an old throttle box and joystick into more of a floor control stick since I'm liking the older school biplanes and GA and some later prop fighters. But that's so modest compared to this lol

    I'm not allowed to fly anything. I lost my medical certificate after my heart attack and bypass surgery almost ten years ago.

    It took me seven years to build that 727 from real and fabricated parts. When I moved to my new home in 2011, I dismantled it and never rebuilt it. I miss it.

    Sorry to hear that! So you don't fly even simulators now? That setup is one of the most impressive I've seen (I've looked online at a fair number)

    What did you fly in reality?
