Just Flight has recently announced on their Facebook page a link to “full details” and five photo’s of their upcoming Avro Vulcan B Mk2 for P3D and FSX.

The aircraft has been modelled after extensive hands-on research with a real Vulcan B Mk2 at Wellesbourne Airfield. The aircraft will have various 4K paint schemes, realistic payloads, and ground equipment.

Here’s the entire features list:

Model

  • Accurately modelled Avro Vulcan B Mk2, built using real-world aircraft plans and comprehensive photography of the real aircraft (XM655)

  • Checklists for every stage of flight
  • Panel state system which will automatically save the panel state whenever a flight is saved and reload the panel state whenever that flight is loaded
  • Aircraft configuration system that will allow you to choose between ‘cold & dark’ or ‘ready for take-off’
  • Functioning oxygen regulator system with realistic consumption based on altitude – watch the oxygen quantity drop with usage
  • Realistic V/UHF radio unit – save and recall commonly used frequencies
