The most famous bomber of World War II is approaching its target in Flight Simulator

Just Flight’s Lancaster is now at the mastering stage and release of boxed and download versions is confirmed for this Friday, 25th August.

The Avro Lancaster is, without a doubt, most famous bomber of all time. It still sets the pulses racing when the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight Lancaster makes its commemorative sorties. The expert vintage aircraft developers at Aeroplane Heaven have followed their success with Spitfire and produced the definitive Lancaster package for Flight Simulator.

Lancaster is officially licensed by the Royal Air Force and it features eight variants of the Lancaster in 15 liveries, including a modified Dam Busters aircraft (with animated bouncing bomb), the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight Lancaster and even a French Aeronavale version.

Just Flight’s sales manager, Paul Hyslop, enthused “The level of detail in Lancaster has only previously been seen in flight simulation expansions of complex modern airliners. A huge amount of historical research has gone into this expansion and we’re really pleased with all the unique features. To give you an example, virtual Lancaster pilots can now leave their cockpits and choose to sit in other parts of the aircraft. They can crew the aircraft from the viewpoint of the bomb aimer, air gunner, navigator or wireless operator. This is a real milestone for PC flight simulation.”

About the Royal Air Force

Formed in April 1918, the Royal Air Force has defended Great Britain from Bapaume to Bosnia. The RAF and its pilots are still acknowledged as the best in the world, and their battle honours are many and glorious. During World War II the Avro Lancaster played an important role in the RAF’s bombing campaign. Bomber Command airmen flew operations on almost every day or night of the war. Their task demanded sustained and repeated acts of courage from individual aircrew in lonely and dangerous situations; 55,000 of them paid the ultimate price for our freedom. Winston Churchill famously said “The fighters are our salvation but the bombers alone provide the means of victory.”
