FSX/P3Dv3/v4/v5 Spitfire Mk VbTrop The basic Mk V was a Mk I with the Merlin 45 series engine. After take off from WASP, BR 123 had to turn back to the carrier while the rest of the Spitfires got airborne. This was the first landing of a Spitfire on a carrier deck, which was quite a feat without an arrester hook. In 2005 a flight to Malta was organised in a restored Spit BM597.

Designed to Air Ministry Specification 2/44 the Brabazon was, at the time of it's construction, one of the largest aircraft ever built, being sized roughly between the much later Airbus A300 and Boeing 767 airliners. Despite its vast size, the Brabazon was designed to carry a total of only 100 passengers, each one being allocated their own spacious area about the size of the entire interior of a small car. Designed to pre-war airline standards, the 8 Centarus-powered Brabazon was probably at the practical limit for a piston prop-liner, and was deemed un-economic in the post-war climate, with no orders forthcoming. Often considered a failure, the Type 167 more than met it's design specs, was a pleasant, well mannered machine that pioneered fully powered flight controls, gust alleviation systems, electric engine controls, high-pressure hydraulics and advanced construction techniques. 60% of the program cost went into capital improvements at Filton and elsewhere that served the British industry well in the jet-age. The final verdict must be that the aircraft was a completely successful prototype showing what to do, and what not to do. FSX native update of the JBK Brabazon, which features a full interior, a very nice front office you could park a Rolls-Royce in, tight modelling, smooth flight model, a great autopilot and slippery frame rates. A few extra are skins provided. Model by Jens B. Kristensen, with a huge B-Z for allowing me to pillage his superb library.

FSX/FS2004 Messerschmitt Bf 109T Messerschmitt Me 109T was a projected carrier version of the Me 109E model. Prior to the war, the Kriegsmarine had become fascinated with the idea of the aircraft carrier. The Graf Zeppelin carrier wasn't completed and 63 of 70 T-1s were built as T-2s without carrier equipment. These fighters were assigned to I/JG.77, deployed in Norway on landing strips which were both short and subject to frequent, powerful cross-winds. At the end of 1941 the unit was ordered to return their aircraft to Germany and received E-3s as replacements. Mdl by A.F.Scrub
