TechnoBrain is a name that I can really connect with. As a self-professed computer geek, I feel like I can’t go wrong with a product that comes from the likes of people, who by virtue of their name, are both technological and smart. When TechnoBrain quietly released their take on Tokyo International Airport (RJTT), it was bound to be a product that ticked all the boxes. After spending some time with this scenery, I can confidently say that while the product is smart, it’s not a technological marvel.

Originally available only for FSX (and only in Japan), RJTT is not a new product. Rather, it’s a port of a product that has been available for years to Japanese pilots and any other pilot resourceful enough to get their hands on a copy. Serving an arguably under-serviced simulator geography, having the ability to add Tokyo to your list of destinations in P3D v4 or FSX is an appealing prospect.

The Canaries, for most people in Europe, invoke memories of childhood holidays, year round sunshine or the repetitive advertising campaigns from tour operators. Around 12 million people every year visit the Canaries for a variety of different reasons – with the most popular reason being tourism. So it is little wonder that I, like many others, was eagerly awaiting MK-Studios latest release: Tenerife Vol.1. Over the past few years we’ve seen tremendous scenery growth in areas of Italy, Germany and mainland Spain. Yet the Canaries, despite their cult like following, have only very recently started to make waves in the community.

In my review we will be honing in on the island of Tenerife, the largest of the islands that make up the archipelago. Originally Tenerife only had one airport, Los Rodeos – known commonly as Tenerife North – situated on the north side of the island. Due to its often inclement weather, it was decided in the late 1960s that a more suitable location be sought to open a new airport to better serve the island. Then on the 27th of March 1977, disaster struck when two Boeing 747s collided causing the death of 583 people making this the worst accident in aviation history. On the 6th of November 1978 Tenerife South was opened and inaugurated as Tenerife Sur Reina Sofia Airport by Queen Sofia of Spain, and has been open to this day.

JUST FLIGHT Vc10 Review
8.5
Before the Boeing 747, there was another queen that ruled the skies - arguably the most elegant airliner to have ever been created. Of course, this is none other than the Vickers-Armstrong’s VC10. The VC10 first took flight in June of 1962, later entering service as a commercial airliner for British Overseas Airways Corporation (BOAC) in 1964. This aircraft was
