[Updated 13:30 GMT: Further information and screenshots]
In the quest to bring their Prepar3D/FSX airliners to X-Plane 11, Just Flight has previewed, for the first time, the Vickers VC-10 in X-Plane 11.
The aircraft is currently on sale for ESP platform simulators, though the team have stated multiple times in the past they intend to bring their airliners over to X-Plane.
The Vickers VC-10 is one of a handful of jetliners designed and built in Britain. Its clean-wing configuration means its four engines are mounted on the empennage, specifically Rolls Royce Conway Mk 301 turbofans.
The airliner first took to the skies in 1962, before entering commercial service with British Overseas Airways Corporation (BOAC) in 1964. Although just 54 were built, the aircraft proved to be a hit with BOAC a few other airlines, and remained in active service for more than two decades.
The military variant continued to fly far longer into the twenty-first century, and was retired in 2013, more than fifty years after its first flight.
"Just Flight's VC10 will be coming to X-Plane 11 and will include accurately modelled Standard and Super civilian variants as well as the C1K, K3 and K4 military variants in a variety of liveries covering their time in airline and RAF service," reads the product page.
"The detailed virtual cockpit features 3D instruments, authentic wear and tear and all four flight crew positions (Captain, Co-Pilot, Flight Engineer and Navigator) modelled in high detail.
"The VC10 is brought to life with distinctive Rolls-Royce Conway engine sounds and accurate flight dynamics based on input from ex-VC10 crew and real-world performance and handling data."
In other news, the developer released Air Hauler 2 for X-Plane 11 last week - further details available to read here.
Additionally, the Flight Sim show, an annual event organised by Just Flight and set to take place in October later this year, was declared cancelled earlier this month, in the wake of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
