The Short Sunderland has made an indelible mark in the annals of aviation history as the most iconic "flying boat" ever to take to the skies. Operating exclusively from water, the Sunderland has had a long and varied history. During World War 2 the aircraft spearheaded the U-Boat hunting patrols in the Atlantic Ocean, recording the first Allied kill in 1940. The Sunderland also excelled in maritime search and rescue operations and heavy transport duties, at times moving over 80 men and supplies in Mediterranean airlifts! Post-War the Sunderland continued to excel, notably with the British North Greenland Expedition ferrying supplies deep into the Arctic Circle.
The package includes a lavishly recreated simulation of the Sunderland MK III, widely regarded as the definitive variant to be deployed around the world. From the cockpit layout through to the crew rest area the Short Sunderland has been modeled in exquisite detail with the support of the Sunderland Trust, to ensure absolute accuracy!
Take to the skies in the most authentic Sunderland ever to fly in Flight Simulator with a wide range of liveries from the RAF, Commonwealth Forces and civilian operators. A wide range of included missions (FSX only) puts your flying skills to the test with challenging sorties around the world!
Also included are detailed pilots notes and a wealth of historical reference in this special collector's edition that is sure to delight fans of this unique aquatic aircraft
