FS2002/FS2004 Lockheed F-94C Starfire. The F-94 was the United States Air Force's first operational jet-powered all-weather interceptor aircraft. It was a development of the two seater T-33 Shooting Star trainer aircraft. The F-94C Starfire was significantly modified from the early F-94 variants; in fact, it was initially designated F-97, but it was decided to treat it as just a new version of F-94. Initially, USAF interest was lukewarm, so Lockheed funded development themselves. by Kazunori Ito.

FS2004 Rockwell X31. The X-31 was designed to break the "stall barrier", allowing it to fly at angles of attack which would typically cause an aircraft to stall resulting in loss of control. The X-31 employs thrust vectoring paddles which are placed in the jet exhaust, allowing the aircraft to maintain control at very high angles. The X-31 also utilizes computer controlled canard wings to help keep the aircraft stable at high angles of attack. The model features the usual moving parts, such as all flight controls, spinning wheels, drag-chute and so on. The livery provided with this model and the panel background have been created entirely from scratch, based on photographic material found in the net. Included with this model is a simplified virtual cockpit, with working essential gauges and animated flight controls. By Giovanni Quai and Italo D'Attomo.

FS2004 Lockheed F-80 Shooting Star. Alpha Simulations is releasing some of their classic titles as freeware. Panel and gauges are included. Features six models and six textures. The first operational jet fighter of the USAAF, the Lockheed P-80/F-80 series was essentially a P-51 Mustang with a jet engine. Utilizing the typical wing, fuselage, and empennage of the piston engine era, the F-80's dimensions and armament were nearly identical to the Mustang. However, the performance was far greater once the type came into its own. Several examples were delivered for evaluation prior to war's end, but the initial plans for 5,000 were abandoned after VJ-Day. The type saw service in Korea, and was the basis for the outstanding T-33 trainer.

FS2004 Alphasim B-57 Canberra. Alpha Simulations is releasing some of their classic titles as freeware. Panel and gauges are included. Five models and five textures. The Martin B-57B was a much-modified version of the original Canberra. The first example flew on June 18, 1954, and featured a drastically-changed crew arrangement and canopy along with a host of other updates. The pilot and navigator sat in tandem, a flat forward windscreen was fitted to make a gunsight installation possible, and speedbrakes were installed in the waist position. Forward-firing guns - machine guns or cannon - were also installed. The B-57B also featured an unusual, rotating-drum type of bomb door that also served as the mounting point for the bombs. This invention saved a great deal of time rearming and also increased the bombing accuracy of the aircraft. The B-57B was in active service with the USAF until 1968, and served on occasion alongside the Canberra B.2.

FS2002/FS2004 Alpha Dassault Mirage IV. AlphaSim is releasing some of their classic titles as freeware. Panel and gauges are included. Features three models and three textures. The Mirage IV bomber was to have delivered nuclear weapons using a free fall technique. When that method become obsolete the conversions of 19 of these to a more modern missile platform was initiated. Optimised for low-level penetration, these aircraft used a sophisticated system of radar and electronic devices to locate and destroy their targets. Several were later converted to reconnaissance aircraft, and a number remained active through 1999.
