I have the X-plane version and, especially in VR, and it is the most immersive cockpit modelling I have experienced to date.  And yes...I have climbed those steps into a real one. 🙂

I asked JF that question when they released the Arrow and they confirmed they are planning on bring over their entire in house catalogue where possible. The Vulcan will look spectacular in MSFS imho.

Amazing aircraft - I spent 30 minutes inside XM655, including sitting in the pilots seat, listening to a Vulcan pilot describe the Black Buck raids during the Falklands conflict - a complete privilege!
 

Distinctive howl in the video from about the 30 second mark.

I like to fool airline passengers into thinking I have my own swimming pool by painting a large blue rectangle on my patio!

Oh, yes. I hope they can get the sounds spot on....  You could feel the runble through the ground you were standing on when she lifted off in the classic near vertical take off turning away.

Really looking forward to the Vulcan as and when, and if they intend to bring their entire back catalogue over, I'll also be very eager to have their Canberra PR9. 👍

JF reproduced  the Vulcan's 'howl' sound very nicely in the P3D version. Being from the UK, they are as steeped in the Vulcan's lore as any of us, and that's a very good thing.🙂

Oh Wow that will be awesome,

In 2019 for Father's Day my son made a donation to the Vulcan ZH558 Trust and I have a certificate and my name on a plaque under the Starboard Wing. Best gift ever !

I never got to see her fly in person when I was growing up in the UK but she still has a fond place in my heart.

As a child, I lived on V-bomber bases such as Wyton and Gaydon, and remember the practice scrambles. The noise was incredible, and thrilling too. At the Battle of Britain Day air show at Gaydon, they decided to stage a massed take-off (well, four or five anyway). It was tipping it down, and the lead aircraft aquaplaned off the taxiway, burying it's starboard undercarriage in the grass. The others couldn't get round it, so that was the end of the airshow. 😅

Saw quite a few at airshows when I was in the UK many many years ago.  The low passes with the bomb bay doors open are particularly impressive. Apart from the noise, that bomb bay is MASSIVE!

I attended a couple of air shows at  Gaydon back in the day. At one of them, definitely before Health & Safety took over, the crowd were allowed quite close when the static aircraft were taxied out at the end of the day, so one of my memories was the jet blast from a Victor as it turned and taxied away from us. I'm pretty sure there was at least one Vulcan there too. Sad to say I didn't attend any of the more recent shows while XH558 was still in action.

I was there too!  Around 1965?  It was actually a Victor that buried its u/c in the mud and yes, it was supposed to be a le mans style takeoff. But there were lots of Vulcans at the show too  🙂

No, this would have been at least 2 or 3  years earlier than that. By BoB Day 1965, we were at RAF Watton, soon to be heading for Singapore and Australia.

My gran lived a stones-throw away from RNAS Daedalus and I'll never forget the sound of the Vulcan's engines at an airshow there when I was a slip of a lad.
