Aeroplane Heaven Announce Avro Lancaster Heavy Bomber!

Avro Lancaster

Aeroplane Heaven has announced their development of the Avro Lancaster Heavy Bomber.

This particular bomber was introduced by the RAF (Royal Air Force) in 1942. This aircraft was used by variety of other countries, such as Canada, Australia, Argentina, and Sweden, just to name a few.

Aeroplane Heaven had this to say:

“Heavy Metal (and a touch of fabric)

It has been over 10 years since we produced a Lancaster. Our last one became a big hit for us and is still selling. With the recent success of our B17s and in light of Prepar3d V4 and its features, we decided that it was time to take a new look at the “Lanc”, for P3DV3+ and FSX/FSXSE.

Whilst the B17s ruled the daylight hours, the Lancaster was the hero of the night, carrying out dangerous mission sorties deep into enemy territory, with little or no fighter cover.

Just like its fighter counterparts, the Hurricane and Spitfire, the Lancaster was the maker of legends like Group Captain Leonard Cheshire and of course, the Dambusters led by Guy Gibson to name but a very few.

With all the latest tech and techniques now available to us,we can now bring you what will be your chance to experience just what it was like to fly and crew this legendary machine in the skies of the latest simulators.

The exterior will have a massive amount of authentic detail to explore with many unique animations and the highly detailed VC will include the front turret and bomber’s compartment, engineer and nav station and radio operator’s positions.

We will update you with more news and features as they happen.”

No release date or price has been announced yet. However, you can expect a release for P3Dv3+ and FSX/FSXSE. More information can be found on the Aeroplane Heaven Facebook page.
