The duo of brothers from FlyingIron Simulations have announced their Republic P-47 Thunderbolt will be available tomorrow!

One of the most popular aircraft used by the United States of America and Allied nations, over 15,000 P-47s were built during the second World War. Its load capacity and design allowed it to succeed as both an escort fighter, and be effective in ground attacks. Its powerful Pratt & Witney R-2800-77 engine can output more than 2,800 horsepower, and allow the aircraft to reach altitudes up to 43,000 feet - higher than most commercial aircraft flying today.

The aircraft will be available to purchase over at store.x-plane.org.
