LLH Créations Méribel V2 Preview

LLH Créations has previewed on one of their new airports being Méribel high up in the French Alps equipped with a sloped runway as many other French altiports.

This altiport is almost done and will be released soon but for now enjoy the screenshots album and for more info check out their website LLH Créations where you can also find all their other altiports high up in the French Alps like Courchevel for example. This airport is perfect for sloped runway training with small propeller aircrafts or even fighter jets while enjoying the beautiful France VFR scenery below. Similar to Courchevel and Lukla, at this altiport it’s impossible to make a go-around.

Méribel is located at roughly 5636 feet/1717.95 meters above mean sea level and closest town is Ajaccio. For more about this check out FSElite website and LLH Créations Facebook page.

Just Flight Vickers VC10 Development Preview

Just Flight has shown development screenshots of their Vickers VC10. They haven’t confirmed this yet but they are looking into the possibility in working on a Super variant of the VC10 but what is confirmed is that a BOAC livery will be included in the release.

VC10 is famous for being one of the most graceful jetliners ever created with it’s long slim slim fuselage and graceful swept back tail surfaces.

It will be available for both P3D and FSX, featuring authentic recreation of the Standard version of this aircraft. Including a highly detailed virtual cockpit with a highly detailed exterior model painted in many classic liveries.

Just Flight doesn’t mention P3D V4 so we have to wait and see if they will also make a 64bit compatible version of this aircraft.
