The Lancaster package from First Class Simulations brings the wartime great, the Avro Lancaster to your flight simulation hangar. With 10 repaints included, this is one of the most complete payware Avro Lancaster packages available for Microsoft Flight Simulator X and Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004. The model is also very highly detailed with lots of eye candy enhancements. It also includes add-on missions for users of FSX.
"I believe the Lancaster was the greatest single factor in winning the war" – except from a letter from Sir Arthur Harris, Wartime commander of RAF Bomber Command to Sir Roy Dobson of Avro, the designers and manufacturers of the Lancaster bomber.
The Avro Lancaster, a four-engine heavy bomber, (affectionately known as Lanc or Lankie) first entered service in 1942 and by the end of the Second World War had been involved in over 150,000 sorties. Most famous for its precision bombing "Dam Buster" raids, codenamed Operation Chastise, on the dams of the Ruhr Valley, the Lancaster excelled at night bombing. During its operational life the Lancasterwas constantly being improved or adapted for new weapons or equipment. Here are the variants and liveries that we have recreated for you…
