Greatest Airplanes: Cardinal! is a set of two Cessna Cardinal civilian aircraft, the C-177B and C-177RG, for Microsoft Flight Simulator 2002 and Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004: A Century of Flight.

The details are modeled on two specific aircraft, the fixed-gear C-177B being N1384C, belonging to the Knoxville Flyers flying club in Tennessee, U.S.A., lending this add-on its nick-name '84Charlie: The Knoxville Flyer'. This aircraft is shown in two liveries; it was initially white/brown, but was repainted in white/red during the add-on development. The C-177RG (Retractable Gear), with registry N33267, is privately owned, and the livery is white/yellow.


Greatest Airplanes: Cardinal! Windows 2D cockpit view is much sharper, and in high resolution.
The map in the left window is not seen in 3D mode, instead it's placed on the right seat. Again, this is the fixed-wheel C-177B version.
