We start with Aeroplane Heaven, which shared plenty of new screenshots about its upcoming Avro Lancaster B Mk.I.

Alongside the aircraft and its custom ground service vehicles, we get to see a new pilot model, nicknamed “Ralph.”

Moving on to modern times, Aerosoft finally shared more screenshots of its upcoming Airbus A330, focusing on the ultra-detailed decals on the fuselage and wings.

These are work-in-progress and even more detail will be added on top of work on reflections and more.

Blue Bird Simulations released new screenshots of its Boeing 757, showcasing the flight deck and the reversers deployed.

ST Simulations had an announcement to make, and it’s Maastricht Aachen Airport (EHBK) in the Netherlands.

While its passenger operations are limited, with mostly seasonal flights, it’s the second-largest cargo hub in the country.

Proud weeb hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long-standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality), MMORPGs, and visual novels are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans on Earth of the flight simulator genre.
