Burning Blue Design Release Wickenby Airfield for MSFS

Steeped in history, the UK’s Wickenby Airfield comes to life in Microsoft Flight Simulator in Burning Blue Design’s latest release.

The Lincolnshire airfield has been accurately recreated after on-site visits by the Burning Blue team, allowing a highly authentic and up-to-date depiction of the historically significant airfield.

Home to numerous bomber squadrons during World War II, including the iconic Lancaster Bomber, post-war the airfield has become a hive of activity for general aviation as a home for various flying clubs, hosting vintage fly-ins and airshows.

The team’s scenery features real-life static aircraft seen at Wickenby, such as a Hawker Hunter F.6 Survivor, De Havilland DH.82 Tiger Moth and even an Armstrong Whitworth SeaSlug MK1 – first-generation surface-to-air missile.

Additionally, a fully working signal square will test pilot’s theoretical knowledge of symbols used to navigate safely, full custom night lighting and over 90 custom 3D objects each with full Physical Based Rendering (PBR) textures.

And don’t forget to check out the accurately depicted café on your next visit!

You can purchase a copy of Burning Blue Design Wickenby Airfield from their website for £12.95.

Having grown up a stone's throw away from Manchester Airport, Jordan had no choice but to love aviation and all things planes. With the help of flight simulators, namely FSX and more recently Xplane 11, he eventually muddled his way to sitting behind the controls of the real thing on a daily basis.
