Gone were the days of wood-and-canvas contraptions, now the future awaits with Boeing’s first-of-a-kind modern airliner! Features such as a retractable landing gear, cantilevered wings, and a top speed of over *190 miles per hour, undoubtedly make the 247D a remarkable aircraft with historic significance.

The Wing42 Boeing 247D is the first aircraft in MSFS to fully implement a radio range navigation module that will have you “flying the beam.” So attune your ears and decipher the code, it’s by no means an easy feat, but it’s all geared towards giving you an experience like no other. If you are looking for immersion that simulates a wide range of behaviours and effects, then prepare to have your hat blown off with our custom-coded Prop-o-Tronic Physics Engine. It uses real-world physics to simulate a rich and interactive flight with significant consequences – so don’t be ill-prepared!

 

Full list of Features

3D Model

High fidelity 3d model with high-resolution PBR textures throughout the aircraft.

Flight Model

Super-realistic flight model, based on aerodynamic analysis and numerous sources from operating procedures to pilot reports. The flight model for the Boeing 247D was meticulously developed by aerodynamics expert Pamela Brooker, verified and tested by seasoned pilots.

System Simulation

The Boeing 247D features our first implementation of the Prop-o-Tronic physics engine in Microsoft Flight Simulator. Systems accurately simulated by Prop-o-Tronic are:

  • Oil System
    Viscosity, temperature, 4 different oil grades are all simulated for dozens of parts in the engine.
  • Electrical System
    Real-world engineering calculations to accurately simulate voltages and currents. Make sure to pack some extra fuses, because they can pop during flight.
  • Realistic Heat-exchange
    Instead of relying on MSFS lookup-tables, heat is calculated using real-world engineering formulas that define the interaction between all the different parts of the engines. Heat is exchanged via convection, conduction and radiation.
  • Much, much more
Animations

Custom animations for all moving parts and controls, from the light switch in the wash room to the vibration of the antenna wire in the wind.

Ground operations and our virtual clipboard

Our virtual clipboard is used to install various ground equipment, remove the cowling of the Pratt&Whitney S1H1-G engines, load the aircraft with passengers, cargo, mail, fuel and oil, and get the engines started. We also provide some key-reference data for your flight, in case you don’t have your checklists handy.

Realistic engine start-up procedure

The 247 had a peculiar engine starter, consisting of a flywheel with a hand-crank and clutch, both operated by the ground crew. You can either have your virtual ground crew do their job, or get your hands dirty by hand-cranking the engines yourself.

Sound

The add-on comes with a custom WWise sound pack, carefully designed by the professional audio mastermind Zak Spence. It includes amazing engine sounds, wind effects, audible controls and much more for a most immersive experience. Hear the engines roar, the equipment rumble, the radio crack and the switches click.

Fully functional Radio Range Navigation

The Wing42 Boeing 247D features an now outdated radio navigation system called “radio range”. The pilot of a historic 1930s aircraft would dial in a frequency on the radio and listen to the changing Morse code transmitted to find his way. It is an annoying and challenging, yet very rewarding way of navigating the skies. We included almost 700 historical radio stations (around 400 of them located in the U.S.A.) and outfitted the aircraft with a Bendix MR1B wireless controller.

But fear not! We also provide plenty of information in form of manuals and video tutorials to get you started!

Custom FX

Utilizing the new effects system where possible, the Boeing 247D comes with custom made effects. From engine smoke to reading lamps in the cabin, the Boeing has them all!

Documentation

We provide extensive learning material to help you familiarize yourself with the aircraft. Included are two training manuals from the 1940s to familiarize yourself with old-fashioned radio navigation.

Liveries

The Wing42 Boeing 247D comes in nine different variations:

  • Fictional Wing42 livery
  • United Air Lines NC13361 (1933 livery)
  • Precipitation Control N3977C
  • Lufthansa D-AGAR

    I'm a guy that's used to the niceties in life, whilst flying. I like my C4Js, A320s, 787s, CRJs, etc etc. I'd seen some reviews of this plane, and it's low price point made me think "Well, why not?". What an amazing thing. Took me a while to get it started, and do a quick flight to and from Ljubljana airport and around the hills. It was thoroughly enjoyable, and I'm looking forward to now doing the radio navigation tutorial - something I've been putting off in the the other airliners as they do everything for you. This plane has given me the desire to "do it the old way".



    Thanks Wings42, for converting a Jet-guy to a prop-also-guy!

    The Boeing 247D is a relay amazing aircraft. The cockpit has a lot of details like shaking gauges due to engine vibrations or fuses which may pop under to high loads. The sound of the Wasp engines is just like music for the ears, I suggest to use headphones to enjoy them to the fullest and not disturbing your neighbors.

    Flying the 247D gives relay the feel of an old heavy airliner.

    The key for flying comfortable is to careful trim the plane out and pay an eye to the engines oil pressure and temperature. I suggest to turn of the engine damage on the first flights and get used to the engines end keep them within limits without the danger of end the flight rather quickly.



    The only thing I wish for is the option to let the first officer take over for a few minutes in order to have enough time for brewing a coffee.



    To make it short, this plane is worth every cent !

    It's a fantastic plane, not perfect, but very close to be it.

    I have problems to ear the gear touching land in landing for example but I love flying it. Since starting to landing it's a really funny experience.

    I have a wish for those people, like me, that are starting in this world and need some help to learn about it, I think that is a good idea have a version with more modern instruments, not necesary GPS but ADF, VOR, COM, NAV etc options and speedmeter, fuel tanks etc, like a 10 years new version. Maybe a 6 pack and radios standard version.

    Best 17€ that I paid for a plane!!!

    Thanks for the work.

    I gave 4 stars in my original review due to problems I had with the electrical system - these have now resolved and it is well worth 5 stars to me. It's a totally different experience and I find it hugely relaxing to be low and slow in something that feels so good. The addition of 30's radio stations is great and I'm having a blast.



    What is amazing about this is the value - top quality at (imo) a bargain price. When I compare this to certain other add-ons on the marketplace in FS2020 it towers head and shoulders above.



    Would LOVE a DC-3 Otmar!

    This is very different from anything else out there and an amazing piece of work. I finally got to grips with engine management but have ongoing issues with the electrical system. The ammeter basically always shows 0 (with occasional jumps) and I cannot see any of the lights working, both internal and external. Also, the landing gear will not deploy (which I believe is also electrical related). The handle moves correctly either from the keybind or with the mouse but never travels up or down. I worked around it with the manual pump but it makes life difficult :-) I checked all the fuses and none were blown.



    My issues may be due to persistent damage but it's impossible to tell. I think it may be worth considering a "reset to original state" option on the clipboard?



    Any suggestions how to revive my electrical system? nb. I did a re-install of the plane but made no difference.



    Thanks!

    I've had the Blériot since the get-go and that sold me on Wing42's quality, so I snapped up the B247D when it came out. I am absolutely blown away by the quality of the product and totally stunned it's only $20.50 US. That's a STEAL for all you get here, not just an awesome plane in all regards but also the whole global LF Radio Range navigation system with most of its idiosyncrasies modeled as well. The B247D puts PMDG's DC-6 completely in the shade.



    Where do I start with the good? Flight model? Looks? Sounds? That's all there in spades and many have mentioned these already so I'll dig deeper. EVERYTHING works (and malfunctions) here. Famously, the soap dispenser in the lav and the passenger reading lights work. The latter ARE used in flight by random pax and increase the load on the electrical system, which is so weak to begin with that most of the instruments use radium to glow in the dark for a while to save power, but you must CAREFULLY flip on their lights every half hour or so to "recharge" them. There are no circuit breakers, only fuses, and you CAN change out blown fuses if you remembered to restock your spares before flight. And the instrument panel is so alien. The artificial horizon is all-blue except for a yellow horizon line, which is confusing. The fuel gauges only show non-zero if you pull their plungers, and you have to play with the plungers a while to get any meaningful display. There's no 6-pack--all the main flight instruments are spread around the middle of the panel mixed in with engine gauges while the pilot's side is dominated by the gear position indicator (a full-size gauge), the OAT gauge, and some strange engine gauges and controls.



    There are a some issues with this product, however. The right main wheel brake seems to come on at random, the plane taxis ahead off where the wheel stopped moving, then the wheel snaps back to the plane's position and causes the right wing to jump up. The tailwheel seems to have a brake on sometimes as well, even though it shouldn't at all, so often the tailwheel hops as you taxi. All this adds up to needing nearly full take-off power to get moving, even remembering that it takes like 20 seconds for the parking brakes to fully release. Also, wear and tear on the engines is saved from flight to flight, but there's no mechanic's report on their health, nor on any other problem you might have (and WILL have, if you have malfunctions on). It would be nice to have some feedback here as the documentation doesn't say much at all about how to do things correctly so as to avoid damage, nor gives you any real troubleshooting guides, so you really don't know what's going on under the hood. But hay, maybe back in the day that's how it was, all laissez faire. I wasn't there so don't know.



    But here's an example. The manual says that periodically you need to test the prop feathering during run-up. and gives a procedure for this. So I did that. Pushing the feather buttons had no effect at all, and the buttons stayed pushed in rather than coming back out so you can push them again to unfeather the props. So, I assumed the system had just failed and went off on the next flight. The mechanic was silent on this issue. And after about 100 miles, both engines feathered by themselves and died, and could not be unfeathered nor restarted. This necessitated a forced landing on a very sketchy dirt strip that, luckily, happened to be within gliding range (see pic). Next flight, the feather buttons were back in their out position and I was afraid to touch them again. But hey, an MSFS plane whose props actually feature. Yay!



    Anyway, I'm totally loving this product. It has a few rather minor glitches and could REALLY use some more info when you have to troubleshoot problems, which you WILL be doing regularly if you have malfunctions on. But seriously, that's why we flying these antiques :)

    I dont understand how you did it Otmar. Amazing!

    Waiting for the tutorial BobbyFuzzy promissed.

    Handstarted it ok, oil pressure allright on the ground mostly, but in the air the pressure gauges are max.

    No matter the possition of the chutters and it just flies without a problem but the pressure does not go down.

    No matter the oil type, outside temp or anything else. Wonder what i'm doing wrong.

    Had the gear not working two times but I found thats a matter of switching battery off and on again.

    Flying the beam is so incredibly good, the RRN-gauge is perfect!

    It is an amazing piece of work. absolutly wonderfull.

    Excellent addon. This is another milestone for MSFS aircraft. The amount of love which went into this product is breathtaking. Systems, flight dynamics, optics, gimmicks, overall immersion, this thing checks all boxes. For any simmer even just a little interested in vintage planes, this is a no-brainer, especially when looking at the price. Anyone else should check it out anyway, as it really is THAT good.



    Only minor complaints: rivet textures from outside can look a little washed-out in the back, but only from very near, and checklists would be nice, although not really needed, as there are already tons of tutorial videos. Nothing to write home about.

    I love this plane. The systems, textures and especially the flight handling is outstanding and immersive. The only complaint I have is with the engine sounds. The sounds just seem a bit off or missing something. They just don't quite sound like radials to me, which detracts from the experience.

    Possible improvements:

    1) Better interior/exterior radial engine sounds.

    2) Add optional VOR/GPS navigation.

    I find the start-up to be finicky and after getting the hang of it, just a waste of time. The unorthodox controls make it difficult with the Honeycomb throttle and quadrant. The sounds are also stuttering and I could not hear the engines starting or running in the cockpit so I fly from outside the cockpit. There are no checklists so the learning process is difficult. Hand flying is OK but since there is no autopilot or GPS it will be limited to short flights. I will use it once in a while but I am still waiting for a DC3. I guess it is worth the price though since a lot of work went into the modeling.

    This is an incredible aircraft, regardless of price. The details being modeled and simulated almost blow your mind (what other aircraft requires you to specify your engine oil weight?) Wonderful sense of accomplishment when you get everything to go right.



    Now that said, although I whole-heartedly give the product 5 stars, I do have a wish list but the only thing on that list that matters is this: a "Mechanics Sheet" available in the Clipboard, even if only after the end of a flight, that tell us - sim pilots, not 1930's airliner pilots - what part(s) went wrong on our temperamental radial engines, oil systems or electrical boxes. I was flying nicely at 3,000' over San Francisco today with all T's & P's looking good when suddenly lost oil pressure in both engines and they died. It would be good to know what I did wrong? I was around 2,000 rpm and 25" MAP and had only been flying for under 3-5 minutes, so hardly stressing any limits, I don't think. I had also freshly changed the oil to match the outside temperature conditions as per the manual. But even with today's odd failure, I feathered the props and made a safe deadstick landing over in Alameda. But it sure would be good to know what went wrong on the plane after a mishap. That's the only thing missing for me.

    I initially installed this plane and had a problem with the landing gear not deploying. I reinstalled the plane, flown it several miles and put it through it paces, it's awesome in every way. You'll love the steam gauges. Thank you, it's A2A all the way. To bad for them.

    Wanted to give it a 5 star rating, but the gear would not retract. It may be my joystick mapping. Love the detail and manual, a lot of work went into this plane. I'm gonna work on that landing gear some more.
    Reply from Otmar Nitsche:
    Check your fuses. And during your flight, check if you didn't drain the battery. Don't turn on all the lights together with the radio. The one 25Amp generator is simply not powerful enough to handle the load.

    I give this plane a 6 out of 5 for being, in my opinion the best plane in MSFS2020 (and I have 160+ planes including all the Reno races ones) sound is great, it feels great to fly, looks fantastic, has a good level of complication, but can be flown even if you want to keep it simple I can't say enough about this plane. If there is a place in your hangar for a quick, reasonably long range twin without autopilot or GPS, get this one! Unfortunately I have to take away a star for the manual. I don't find it comprehensive enough for such a complex model, so 5 out of 5, not 5/6.

    It is truly refreshing to see a development team that understands the need of the hardcore flight sim community and is ready to produce the highest standard products, whilst being mindful of the fact that people have more pressing financial needs than spending large amounts of money on non essential hobby items (as much as they might want to). More importantly, this type of marketing strategy is a template for all principled developers and proof that it is possible, with passion and dedication, to produce masterful flight simulation products, without punishing your customer base with over zealous pricing and poor customer support. I wish you all the best Wing42 and you may certainly consider me a devoted fan and customer if you continue in this spirit moving forward. Bravo!

    For me the long wait for a true hands on high fidelity aircraft has finally come true for MSFS.

    Your efforts on this beautiful product are truly beautiful.

    At last I own something which flies and feels real, with much room for study.

    Now MSFS suddenly works the way it should.

    I can't give enough credit and thanks to all the team who made this possible.

    The price is just.. well.. unbelievable!!

    I wish you all the very best for the future.

    I have a a wish that you may possibly find another vintage airliner give your love to one day.

    Looking forward to all you have to offer

    To be able to produce a plane of such quality is a remarkable feat.

    The amount of detail that has gone into the model, the systems and procedures, the crew, the lighting, the loading of cargo and the audio is amazing.



    To deliberately set the price low, knowing it could easily sell much higher, shows that the team at Wing42 care much more about the quality of their product than making a quick buck. It's a refreshing attitude.



    If there is any other plane available for MSFS that has this level of detail, for this value, I've yet to find it. Best of all, it's a joy to fly!



    Even if vintage aeroplanes aren't your thing I recommend giving the 247D a go, if only to support a developer that cares about quality over profit.

    I am flying her (B247) in VR…flys awesome. Trying to describe how it handles I would say like as if you took a GA two engine mid sized plane, added more radial engine power and made it the coolest vintage bus in the air you could make…she’s beautiful and soft to the touch. And I think she is a definitely a she…at least she is for me. She likes to be handled with some attention, she responds slow but sweetly. The vintage look is appealing all around. The features on this plane are many and well done. I flew it last night for hours and it was just a calming experience. At cruise speed and 4,000 feet the engines sound awesome and the scenery out the window passes by at a nice pace for sight seeing over green farmlands surrounded by hedge rows, small towns and cities. Tune in the radio and you get 1930’s music playing at just an audible level and it sneaks up on you…suddenly you get it…this was a time when people took time to live, to romance life.

    There are only two kinds of flight simmers: those who believe this product should be supported, and those who are wrong.



    This is a vintage radial, modelled with incredible attention to detail and obvious passion. There are many ground breaking innovations in this model and you can read about them all. The devs then took a conscious gamble to price low, in the hope of reversing the current trend in msfs of skyrocketing prices. They even wrote a blog about it.



    If you love vintage radials, buy it. If you dont love vintage radials, buy it anyway. It might surprise you.

    I watched a review from flightdeck2sim to avoid mistakes in flying this bird. It still took me several attempts to get the engines started. If you don't have something just right or don't follow the procedure, she aint going to go! Read the manual! Also, when I tried to taxi the plane wouldn't move. The tires seemed to be sunken into the ground. I fixed this by restarting the simulator so it probably is a good idea to restart the simulator after installing this plane. After warmup I revved her up to 36 inches and just let her take to the skies on her own. Raised landing gear, throttled down and leveled out at 5000 feet. The plane flies very well. I set the trim, monitored the oil temp and pressure and had a wonderful flight. I took off from Renton airport in Seattle and flew around Puget Sound for about an hour before landing at Boeing Field. Seems like the main trick is keeping an eye on the oil temp and pressure. If you get low oil pressure and high temp, open your oil cooler flaps a little. Conversely, if you get high oil pressure and low temp, close the oil cooler flaps a little. Follow the engine manifold pressure recommendation to the letter and you will have no problems flying this bird!

    The detail on this plane is mind boggling. From the start procedures to the working lights and ashtrays in the passenger compartment, the detail is incredible! I haven't even began to scratch the surface of exploring this incredible airplane. One question though, when I walk halfway down the isle in the passenger compartment I hear a clock ticking. I have yet to be able to find the clock and it is driving me crazy! Where is the clock?!

    I built a Boeing B17 for Flight simulator about 20 years ago but didn't even compare to your plane. My dream is to build one that matches the quality and detail of your 247!

    Again, thanks for a wonderful airplane, Otmar. Job well done and I would highly recommend this aircraft!

    Knowing the work that Wing42 did on the Vega for FSX/P3D and again as one the first developers to offer a high quality addon for MSFS with the Bleriot, there was no doubt I would purchase this plane. From the flight model and textures, to the details in the systems programming to the sounds, to the little touches that add realism to the whole experience, there is no better plane on the market right now for MSFS that captures that golden age of flight like the 247.



    Would I recommend it? Absolutely. Heck, buy it twice. Give a copy to a friend who doesn't understand the art of a lovingly crafted plane so they will become a believer as well!
