[Bel Geode] (FSX Steam) Oculus Rift: Grumman F6F Hellcat “100 Dollar Hamburger” (FYC)

Recently, iBlueYonder released a two pack of airports (Plum Island – 2B2, with Minuteman Airfield – 6B6) in Massachusetts. The payware scenery package is affectionately known as the “Hundred Dollar Burger” pack.

Named for an aviation inside joke, the “hundred dollar burger” is essentially ANY excuse a pilot can find to go airborne, not always ending in fine food. In our case however, we will be ending our trip at the diner at Minuteman Airfield.

In addition, this episode also features the outstanding payware aircraft from Vertigo Studios, decorated in a custom livery created by newcomers Virtual Aircraft Restoration Team.
