Aeroplane Heaven's B-17 collection includes the famous 'Memphis Belle', B-17F25 'Hell's Angels', 'Miami Clipper', 'Blonde Bomber', B-17F30 'The 8 Ball', 'Black Jack', 'Birmingham Blitzkrieg' and 'Wulf Hund', and a fictional B17F-20 'Bare Metal'.
Aeroplane Heaven have updated this B-17 collection and it now includes the B17-G version in early and late versions, in seven new paint schemes.
A massive amount of detail has been included yet frame rates are high for smooth flying on all but the slowest computers. Even the diamond treads are bump-cut into the tyres! A fully functional cockpit includes authentic start procedures and engine management including the turbo-superchargers. You also have a choice of conventional flood or ultraviolet lighting at night.
From the fully detailed nose section to the animated tail-gunner, this package really does do homage to one of history’s most illustrious icons and an aviation legend.
