In this add-on to the SFX/2004 game, you can fly one of the world's best known heavy bombers of the second world war. The Lancaster is a big bundle of might, stamina and daring. Mass formations of this remarkable machine were seen nightly, leaving their airfields in England for targets deep inside enemy territory.

The level of detail in this package has only previously been seen in flight simulation expansions of complex modern airliners. A huge amount of historical research has been undertaken, and virtual pilots can now leave their beautifully modeled cockpits and choose to sit in other parts of the aircraft. The positions available are: Bomb aimer, Air Gunner, Navigator or Wireless Operator.

Special Operations cover the famous Dambuster Lancs with their spinning bombs. You can fly the Specials equipped to drop the mighty Tallboy and Grandslam earthquake bombs, the lesser known radial-engined MkII and the French machines of the AeroNavale. No other simulator release is as comprehensive or action feature packed!
