The longest Airbus jet, the A340-600, is being developed by ToLiss for X-Plane 11 and now has a formal release date. The short 45-second teaser trailer shared a number of elements of the aircraft such as the external modelling, animations and also the cockpit.
ToLiss has had plenty of experience in developing Airbus aircraft over the years with the A321Neo being the latest release from the developers on X-Plane 11.
The A340-600 is a four-engined aircraft developed by Airbus that first flew in 2001. It competed directly with the Boeing 747 for capacity, but due to increased fuel costs, never quite reached the same levels of success. That said, it provided a comfortable journey for pilots and passengers for up to 7,800nm. As of today, 60 of the type still fly for a handful of airlines around the world.
Finally, the trailer revealed that the A340-600 by ToLiss will release on October 25th 2021. With a month to go until the release, we’re sure there will be plenty more previews and coverage for the aircraft over the coming weeks.
