The mighty Vulcan is back in Flight Simulator X

RAF Vulcan has now been updated and is available now to download from Just Flight’s website. A DVD-ROM version with a new printed manual will be released on 23rd May and is available now to pre-order. As well as FSX compatibility, RAF Vulcan has been updated to make it compatible with Windows Vista and (with some minor limitations outlined below) the Flight Simulator SP2 service pack and Acceleration expansion

Existing owners of the Just Flight FS2004 version of RAF Vulcan can purchase a downloadable upgrade to FSX/Windows XP compatibility for£4.99 from www.justflight.com.

The Avro Vulcan’s beautiful lines and distinctive shape make it an icon of cold-war aviation. The Vulcan first flew in 1952, entered RAF service in 1957 and the final Vulcan flight was back in 1993. Thankfully, the last of these milestones has changed - Vulcan XH558 is airborne again, courtesy of a Heritage Lottery Fund grant and the tireless work of its dedicated fans.

Now updated for FSX compatibility, RAF Vulcan includes a faithful model from acclaimed developers PSS of XH558 as it appears currently, an additional eight all-new liveries from some of the aircraft involved in the Falklands conflict of 1982, and some of the preserved aircraft in the UK.

Fully licensed by the Royal Air Force, RAF Vulcan contains a total of eighteen examples in different Squadron liveries and with different model variations, including the 2K air-to-air refuelling tanker variant and those carrying the Blue Steel British nuclear cruise missile, the Shrike anti-radar missile as used in the Falklands, and the‘project cancelled’ Skybolt missiles. The FS2004 version also includes scenery of RAF Cottesmore.

Just Flight’s Wolfgang Schwarz, who co-ordinated the FSX update, remarked:“We have responded to the huge demand from our customers and done what we think is an excellent job of upgrading RAF Vulcan for FSX. We have added eight new aircraft and given the whole package a complete tune-up. However, a couple of minor features from FS2004 have not been carried over to FSX. These are the one-button‘quick start’ function and autopilot, which only operate in FS2004.”
