Black Box Simulation Releases L-19 Bird Dog V1.6 for MSFS

Aircraft developer Black Box Simulation has released V1.6 of its Cessna L-19 “Bird Dog” for Microsoft Flight Simulator. 

The Bird Dog was developed in 1949 by Cessna as its new Model 305, which added a tandem seat configuration to a design that was based on the its 170. The United States Government took notice and saw great utility in the aircraft, and promptly ordered 418 of them. Ultimately, over 3,000 of the aircraft were built and shipped for civilian and military use all over the world.

The announcement came via a post to Black Box Simulation’s Facebook page, which not only revealed the update, but also provided a changelog and new images for V1.6. According to the post, the new version includes additions such as a brand new interior and exterior lighting system, volumetrics and shadow casting, as well as some brand new liveries for users to enjoy.

V1.6 Changelog:

  • New lighting system interior/exterior
  • Light splashes on ground
  • Volumetrics and shadow casting
  • All lights and switches now tied to MSFS defaults and keypresses
  • Custom lighting FX
  • 2 New Liveries “Cat Killers” and “Philadelphia Glider Council”

This update comes to us four months after the Bird Dog’s initial release, which you can read about here.

You can purchase the Cessna L-19 Bird Dog  for EUR 24.99 (Excl. VAT) directly from Black Box Simulation’s website here.
