Product Description

Product Description

ENGLISH ELECTRIC LIGHTENING

Manufacturer's Description

The English Electric Lightning has the distinction of being the only all-British supersonic jet Fighter/Interceptor and was at the heart of the UK’s front line air defences for more than 25 years. As its name suggests, the Lightning was built for speed – pilots marvelled at its brutal power and loved its astounding performance, easy handling and phenomenal rate of climb.

The Lightning F.6 was the pinnacle of the breed, boasting higher speeds and capable of carrying more fuel than earlier variants. This F.6 collection captures perfectly the awesome presence of this astonishing aircraft, with a highly detailed virtual cockpit, accurate animations and a host of special effects. The first and last purely British-built supersonic Fighter and Interceptor, this hugely powerful aircraft was a potent symbol of the Cold War and was designed to be on high readiness to launch at a few minutes’ notice.

Now fearless FSX pilots can experience Mach 2 for themselves in the amazing Lightning!

The only all-British Mach 2 fighter!

Includes seven RAF liveries and a Royal Saudi Air Force F.53 export variant

Detailed 3D virtual cockpit features the distinctive ribbon airspeed/Mach indicator, radar scope, functional annunciator banks for all major engine systems and an accurate fuel tank gauge array which includes the unique Lightning flap tanks

Aircraft feature numerous accurately animated moving parts, deployable braking chute, over-wing fuel tanks and animated reheats and operating thrust vanes in the tail pipes

Awesome stereo sound set delivers the full force of the two Rolls-Royce Avon engines with their unique start-up sequence

Special effects include afterburners, start-up smoke, and muzzle flash from the gun pods

Authentic tracking, radar and radio equipment – the radar scope is complete with adjustable screen presentation displaying terrain, airport and traffic information

Full complement of ground equipment includes switchable ground power unit, chocks, pre-flight flags, probe sheath, cockpit ladder and even a tie-down cockpit cover

Having a number of aircraft as add-ons from Just Flight I was confident that this would be a worthwhile add on for FSX, and was not disappointed. It is worth it just to see this classic aircraft fly, and experience (as far as is possible with a game) the breathtaking performance. Surprisingly it is quite easy to fly, and it is fairly easy to land as well, the parachute deployment when reverse thrust is pressed is impressive, as is the firing of the cannons and the roar of the engines. If you read the manual the pilot can be removed so you can study the cockpit layout, which is highly detailed as are all add-ons from this company. Even though few of us can ever fly this as a real pilot did, it's a wonderful model to add to FSX just to recapture a bygone age, and in fact is a more realistic proposition to fly than (say) an A380, which few pilots could fly on their own! A worthwhile add-on even if you only fly it for a sense of nostalgia.

A superb rendition of a true British classic. The software loaded without fuss, the finished product was just breath taking. I could not find this product in the shops, and I had been looking for it some time.

I would recommend this product to anyone with an interest in flight simulation and in particular the Lightning.

quality of liveries/quality of the sound/canopy opening and closing/pilots head moveing/parachute opening, all of these in my opinion make it a worth while purchase.

I've always loved this aircraft ever since I saw it many years ago! To see it fly like a bullet was an amazing experience. This experience is recreated with this release on FSX and they have done a very good job too! It flies very well and has great handling and is well worth the money.
