Is that the Virtavia B-1, Alan? Nice menacing shot.

Yup it is the Virtavia one. I think the B-1 is one of the prettiest aeroplanes there is, which is ironic given its mission.

Incidentally, it is on sale on Steam too at the moment I notice, as it pretty much every other FS add-on and FSX itself is £9.99 at the moment, so you can currently get the B-1 Lancer for £6.99. Not bad for just over a Fiver if you fancy blasting aroud at Mach 1.2 at 60,000 feet lol, although don't expect a 'study sim' aeroplane, it's got the typical Virtavia functionality, i.e. a nice VC and nice external model, but many of the buttons and dials are purely for looks, however, as far as the flight model goes, it seems pretty much bang on the numbers to me.

I had their B-1 for FS2004 from PCAViator and am aware like all Virtavia aircraft, they are a bit more than  'lite', but for the price(thanks for the Steam heads-up),can put up with it. But I'm nowadays only devoting time to 'Tubes'. However, I do agree with you, it is a lovely looking sleek lines machine given its mission profile!
