Following on from their award-winning PA-28 series, Hawk T1/A Advanced Trainer and C152, this highly detailed simulation of the Avro Vulcan B Mk2, K.2 and MRR is being developed by Just Flight’s in-house team and Thranda Design following comprehensive, hands-on research with a real-life Vulcan B Mk2, XM655, based at Wellesbourne Airfield.
The Vulcan B Mk2 is an iconic, four-engine, delta-wing strategic bomber which saw service in the UK during the Cold War. XM655, on which this product is based, was the third-from-last Vulcan to be produced for the Royal Air Force. It was delivered in 1964 and saw service as part of the UK’s nuclear deterrent force throughout the 60s and 70s. It is now being preserved by a team of volunteers at Wellesbourne Airfield.
This product also includes the K.2 Air-to-Air Refueling and Maritime Radar Reconnaissance (MRR) variants that saw service with the Royal Air Force. The aircraft features include PBR materials, ground equipment, a range of realistic payload options, detailed animations including a multi-stage brake parachute, realistic flight instruments and V/UHF radio unit, fully functioning magnetic indicators, warning lights and push-to-test buttons, checklists for every stage of flight and numerous custom-coded systems and avionics. A total of 17 paint schemes are included.
