Rotate has released their MD-80 (payware addon); it's available at the Org Store. Now I guess our charter MD-80s will find more frequent use (at least by me ;) )

Rotate has just released their upgrade to version 1.3 - they really put some effort now into the systems (visuals were already stunning). Some extract from the change log:
