Aeroplane Heaven Announces C-47/DC-3

In recognition of the 75th anniversary of D-Day, Aeroplane Heaven has announced development of the C-47 (and DC-3) for Prepar3D V4.4+. The aircraft is slated to be the developers “…most challenging and rewarding project to date. Simply, because we are going all out to provide [the most] detailed, Hi-Definition models of this aeroplane […] ever produced.”

However, in particular, the project will put an emphasis on That’s all Brother – “the C-47 that led the armada of Skytrains across the English Channel to Normandy on that fateful day.”

Please see below for a brief summary of project features.


  • C-47 Military and DC3 Dakota civilian versions with a wide choice of liveries.
  • Hi Definition modeling in full, accurate detail, down to wire-strand locking wires on components in the cockpit and fully modelled gauges with correct assemblies and 3D needles and all dials with raised paint markings etc.
  • Hi Definition PBR textures INSIDE and OUT with highly realistic fabrics, metals and paintwork, ageing and weathering effects.
  • “On-the fly” configuration panel allows you to change liveries, colours, materials and ageing effects whilst flying.
  • Although we can’t make it for “D” Day, she’s on the front burner now and will be available this year.
  • Currently we are making for P3DV4.4+ ONLY (due to workload on PBR etc.) but depending on demand, we will look at other sims.
  • We also plan to provide “That’s all Brother” in as complete a history as possible from original as in 1944 right through to today’s restoration and all the owners in between.
