New JustFlight BAe 146 Previews

Thursday, June 11, 2020

Two days after teasing the project, X-Plane developer Just Flight has published a full feature list and new screenshots of their upcoming BAe 146.

On Facebook and its website product page Just Flight posted seven different pictures showcasing the aircraft’s exterior in various stages of flight and different liveries. Additionally, Just Flight has confirmed that the BAe 146 will be developed by its own “in-house team” partnered with Thranda Design. Furthermore, Just Flight has noted that a real aircraft is being used as reference during the development process.

 The BAe 146, known as the “quiet jet”, was originally designed by Hawker Siddeley with production starting in 1981. Just Flight’s BAe 146 will feature “the iconic high T-tail, the short undercarriage, the distinctive airbrake, and all three variants of the aircraft (-100, -200, -300).”

Just Flight also released a feature list for the final product.
