Subject: Avro Lancaster
Date Posted: 25 Jul 2016 at 9:23am
In view of the recent release of the Moquito, I was wondering whether it would be possible to develope a Avro Lancaster. The First Class Version is good but I feel that it is now becoming a little dated.
Thanks
John Smith

Agree 100% on this, the Lancaster is without doubt as iconic as the Spitfire and the super talented JF in house dev team would make a superb job of it. Done to the standards that has been coming out of the in house team, it would be a great seller for JF.

Hello
I have been in touch with A"A when the only other flying Lancaster was in the UK from Canada, but the response was totally negative. I have also been in touch with Aeroplane Heaven and the reply was not in the foreseable future
Also Virtavia have a copy of the Lincoln, but my advice would be to stick with the First Class Version for now

Just Flight produced the Lancaster, but if you have Win10 and the Boxed version then you can no longer install it under Win10.

just Flight produced a Lancaster but it no longer installs boxed version under win10. So another piece of software that microsoft has made null and void.

I would have thought it would be a no-brainer for Aeroplane Heaven and Just Flight to have a crack at the Lancaster for P3D V4, especially since they did such a brilliant job with the B17F, which is without doubt one of the best add-ons they've ever made. AH knocked it right out of the park with that one, it's awesome.

I have been in touch with both Aeroplane Heaven and A2A who did not seem that interested in the Lancaster which I think is a shame especially after the interest that was generated when "VERA" from Canada was in England. Also its the reason I have not upgraded to Windows 10 from Windows 7

Now that we've got a Vulcan in the works, that only leaves the Lancaster and SR-71 on my bucket list of aircraft I'd love to create.
I'll be crossing my fingers we get to the Lanc some time with you guys!

At the risk of sounding rude which I dont mean to be, I would respectfully suggest that going forward, JF keep it all in house to maintain the most excellent standard set by the Canberra, Hawk, GR1 etc. A Lancaster done 100% by the JF in house team would be the answer to my prayers ! Also, I know there are many Spitfires out there but the only decent one is the A2A Mk 1/2b. How about the house team think outside the box and do a Mk16 with Merlin, in my humble opinion, the most beautiful Spitfire variant ever made.

Just wanted to add my support for a lanc too!
Having both fsx versions of the lanc they are dated and never entirely worked properly either with missing controls and systems being mixed up. A study lanc would do so well with the ability to manage fuel systems, engine feathering and restarts etc.
It is a constant running joke on the a2a forums but it is unlikely they will ever do one. Go for it Just Flight, the in house team is among the best.
Fingers crossed. :)

I would buy any in-house JF spit or lanc in a heartbeat :) I'm sure the BoB flight would partner up with you vis a vis access to aircraft and data? K

If a Lancaster was produced and to the level, or higher, than the Canberra PR9 then I too would buy one. 

A sim study level aeroplane, including engine and fuel management systems etc., would definately lighten my wallet.  Big smile

Yes, a good Lancaster would be very nice.
I've just finished reading "Bomber Flight Berlin" by Mike Rossiter, it's the story of one Lancaster crew's war and it gives a pretty horrific account of the number of people killed by the bomber offensive, both civilian and crew, for example one raid quotes 46 Lancasters lost.

Ian

Nice to see support for the Lancaster, its time this most iconic of aircraft was honoured by a British developer. You have a very talented team in place now to pull this off before someone else does so come on Just Flight and pay tribute to the aircraft that in my opinion, won us the war.

I dont care too much for complicating it with fuel management systems etc but I would like to see a functioning bomb aimers view and the ability to drop ordnance so we can recreate the sole purpose of what the real aircraft was designed and built to do.

Sir Winston Churchill. " The fighters are our salvation... but the bombers alone provide the means of victory"

Herman Goering. " No enemy plane will fly over Reich territory"




Here is S - Sugar, now preserved at the RAF Museum Hendon. I believe the only RAF aircraft to be awarded the Distinguished Flying Medal.

Didnt see this coming ! Thanks for the heads up Tutmeister.

This is good news indeed, been patiently waiting for a good Lancaster for years. I hope it includes droppable ordnance and bomb aimers view through a SABS precision bomb-sight so we can fly it to do what it was originally designed and built to do. I feel radio, nav station and front gunner views are unnecessary and the engineer sits next to the pilot anyway. Mid upper gunner 360 view would be nice but tail end Charlie, not so much. Respectfully, its a waste of devs time and poly's cramming in useless gimmicky views that most of us never use. Front & rear gunner views there's nothing to see ! Please don't over complicate it, just focus on overall quality, functionality as a bomber, a spot on sound set and you have a winner. Not being rude here so please take my comments in the spirit in which they are meant. Looking forward to it. Spitfire looking good too !

First Class Simulations do one which is excellent and it is of the last one to fly in the UK

First class is a shocking mess of a model with incorrect systems, fuel selectors that are the wrong way round, loads of switches not working or doing the wrong thing, prop pitch and feathering that doesn’t work properly and incomplete models depending on the version selected. I can’t wait to have a prepar3d native version that has everything working on it.
Despite all that I enjoyed flying the fcs one a lot, probably because it has been the only half decent one that worked in fsx or p3d until now.

I agree with your statements.

From my experience with P3dv3, it's a P3dv4 version that's required. The sim may be prone to out of memory, especially over Orbx Germany, which is a VAS eater!

Whilst it would be nice to have a working "complex" read, complete simulation of a Lancaster, I think a TacPack enhanced version would be and should be included, as the icing on the cake!

TacPack works well in 64 bit. The VRS Superbug works well in 64 bit, so it's my hope the developers get the Lancaster project done properly.

Just out of curiosity and academic interest, I recently completed a modern re creation of the Dambusters raid. I used the route as flown by AJ-J, Dave Maltby's aircraft.

Because the F/A 18 E has all the modern GPS weapons available and functions in P3dv4, I employed that aircraft, albeit with modern weapons and some "modern" defences to balance out the mission. Obviously it's in day time, or, if filmed at night you wouldn't see anything on You Tube! However the night mission is rather special when you fly it in your favourite aircraft....Tornado anyone??
