what do you mean by "fully working"?

Look here for the DC3 / C-47. Great model and very functional. Also payware at $30.

http://www.maam.org/php/xcart/MAAM-SIM- ... 16708.html

As for the C130, go here, also payware. But there are options as to what and how many models you want, that make up the price blocks. You can also get the C130 for FSX PRO PACK, that DOES work in FS9. But, it is expensive, for some.

note: I have Maam DC3/C47 and the FSX Extreme Pro C130. Both are excellent.

I guess you need to be more specific than that.

As in do you want all the working bells and whistles, or not. And whether you care if it is payware or freeware.

The two links I posted have all that, but are payware. For freeware, good luck.

I agree with RD
The Middle Atlantic Air Museum makes great aircraft.

I have the following
B25--Briefing Time
DC3/R4D/C47
Torpedo bomber

As stated below, I have attended their Annual WWII several years in a row and several of my pictures have appeared on their website.

I have included a picture of Bill Rambow who is one of the main programmers for their aircraft. I have had the pleasure of talking to and exchanging emails with Bill on several occasions.

A very interesting batch of repsonses to dclkl's query.I'm afraid I'm with rd on this.I too have tried the so-called freeware versions of this venerable 'war horse',i.e.the C-130 Hercules,and have yet to come across anything better than the product brought out by CaptainSim.

Their C-130 and Boeing 707,and with minor misgivings,Boeing 757 are first-rate aircraft to add to a simmer's collection.I think in the simulations industry,only PMDG,Level-D Simulations,and Flight 1 better them.I used to think one got jam for free,but there is no such thing as free jam.

The time,the efforts,and the developements put into these above-named 3-4 Flight Sim products makes the investment in a payware sim worthwhile in the long run.

I got a fantastic C-130, Coast Guard Version, right off this site and I enjoy it a lot. I had to download the cockpit, again, right off this site, and I still get a lot of satisfaction from it.

There is a another great version of the C-130 which I also got right here. It's an Argentinian military version. It has better engines and is truely a short take-off aircraft. The engines are much better than the Coast Guard version. They really do haul!!!

I use the Argentinian version with the downloaded Coast Guard cockpit. It's a smokin' combo. Check it out.

Also, at the risk of sounding like a broken record, the C-47 is the military version of the DC-3. The DC-3 is one of my favorites. There should be a few on FS04. (Didn't someone say that already?)

Rock-Head:

You are correct.

C47 is the Army version of the DC3.

R4D is the Navy version of the DC3.
