X-Plane 11 RNAF Default KC-10 1.0. This is a Royal Netherlands Air Force livery for the default KC10. There are still two in use in the Netherlands (one day they will be replaced by the A330 tanker). Unzip and place into the liveries section of the default KC-10. If a liveries folder is not present, simply create one. By Henk de Bruin.
X-Plane 11.30+ Vickers Valiant 2.0. This is a re-post of Daniel Grimes original model, updated (with permission) for X-Plane 11. Daniel's original description is as follows: The Valiant was the first V bomber in service; and the first out of service! It was designed as a low-tech stop gap until the more risky Vulcan and Victor were brought into service. The Valiant didn't have the aesthetic beauty of its Vulcan and Victor stable-mates, so it's the lesser known V-bomber. It was also hastily withdrawn after 10 years operational service because of fatigue problems that became evident when the role was switched from high to low altitude (as the Vulcan and Victor took on the high altitude role) - the main wing spar failed whilst a Valiant was in flight, but it got back to base. The Valiant saw operational service against Egypt in 1956. The zip file contains 3 Valiants: Type 660 Prototype - less powerful engines and a bit lighter than the production model - finished in bare metal, Type 673 Valiant B2 Pathfinder, and lastly Type 706 Valiant B1. Details of each type are contained in the included documentation. My thanks again to Daniel for allowing this model to be updated. By Ray Hill.
X-Plane 11.30+ Valiant B1 2.0. The Valiant was the first V bomber in service, and the first out of service! It was designed as a low-tech stop gap until the more risky Vulcan and Victor were brought into service. The Valiant didn't have the aesthetic beauty of its Vulcan and Victor stable-mates, so it's the lesser known V-bomber. This is a collaborative work using the existing build posted from about a month ago: VICKERS_VALIANT.ZIP. It is released as a new plane because it has has significant added functionality. Major credits are to Daniel Grimes for his original framework, and also to DomHenry for hours of detailed graphics work and subsequent object blending (particularly on the complicated intake area). Undercarriage, airbrake, intake geometry and bomb bay improvements were my own main contributions. Please see the included documentation for further details on this model. By Ray Hill.
X-Plane 11.30+ BAC TSR-2 2.1. The British Aircraft Corporation TSR2 was a cancelled Cold War strike and reconnaissance aircraft developed by the British Aircraft Corporation for the Royal Air Force in the late 1950s and early 1960s. This is an adaption of Daniel Grimes previous work (with permission), and is an excellent example of what he achieved. The aircraft starts in an unfinished 3D cockpit, so please use the 2D version (Alt + W). Documentation included in the package. Version 2.1: Many downloaders will have found this very difficult to fly. There was a serious roll problem. I have tweaked the elevators which are now full flying elevons and fixed that issue. By Ray Hill.
X-Plane 11.30+ AVRO 707 1.0.1. Avro built four prototypes to test a variety of handling characteristics for wing shapes on the Vulcan bomber. This is simply a re-post of Daniel Grimes' original work run up to V11 (mustn't be allowed to rot on the scrapheap). Each plane has different handling characteristics (the first two are quite nasty). Please fly from the external view (shift 4) as the cockpit interiors need re-doing (not that there will be anything too exciting in these anyway). It is interesting see the visual differences through the versions and compare layouts with the MK1 Vulcan (particularly the C version). Landing a delta has challenges requiring a nose high approach which gives high ground effect at flare, so the aircraft will often just float down the runway if the speed is too high. Later on the Fairey Delta 2 was used in a similar way to evaluate the Wing for Concorde. Please see the included documentation for further details on this model. By Ray Hill.
X-Plane 11.30+ Ilyushin Il-28 Beagle 1.0.1. The Ilyushin Il-28 is a jet bomber of the immediate postwar period that was originally manufactured for the Soviet Air Forces. It was the Soviet Union's first such aircraft to enter large-scale production. It was also licence-built in China as the Harbin H-5. Full production in three factories started in September 1949, with service deliveries starting in early 1950, allowing 25 Il-28s to be displayed at the Moscow May Day parade of 1950 (as ordered by Joseph Stalin when it was ordered into production in 1949). The Il-28 was widely exported, serving in the air arms of some 20 plus nations, ranging from the Warsaw Pact to various Middle-Eastern and African air forces. Two are aircraft are presented here; one operated by the 57th Air Army based at Lviv airfield (UKLL), and another operated by the 51st AB of Egyptian (United Arab Republic) Air Force based at Azmara airfield (HEAZ). Credit goes to Beber for the use of his pilots. By Philippe Gastebois.
X-Plane 11.30+ Vickers Varsity 1.2.0. The Vickers Varsity is a British twin-engined crew trainer operated by the Royal Air Force for 25 years from 1951. The Varsity was introduced to replace the Wellington T10 trainer. The first production aircraft were delivered for operational use in 1951 to No. 201 Advanced Flying School at RAF Swinderby, where they were used to train pilots to fly multi-engined aircraft. It also equipped two Air Navigator Schools in 1952, and the Bomber Command Bombing school, with the job of training crews for RAF Bomber-Command's V-bomber crews. The last flying example (Serial WL679) was operated by the Royal Aircraft Establishment; it was retired into preservation at the RAF Museum (Cosford) in 1992. Please see the included documentation for further details on this model. By Ray Hill.
X-Plane 11.30+ Handley Page Victor B Mk2 V2. The Handley Page Victor is a British jet-powered strategic bomber, developed and produced by the Handley Page Aircraft Company, which served during the Cold War. It was the third and final V-bomber to be operated by the Royal Air Force, the other two being the Avro Vulcan and the Vickers Valiant. Please read the pilots notes files. By Ray Hill and Dom Henry.
