“This package really does represent true value for money... This airplane is thoroughly recommended for anyone and everyone... I could get drunk on the wealth of detail in the Just Flight RAF Vulcan... A useful Pilot's notes handbook... Superb sound package within the main program... A well detailed cockpit”
Overview

The Avro Vulcan’s beautiful lines and distinctive shape make it an icon of cold-war aviation. The Vulcan first flew in 1952, entered RAF service in 1957 and the final Vulcan flight was back in 1993. Thankfully, the last of these milestones has changed - Vulcan XH558 is airborne again thanks to a Heritage Lottery Fund grant and the tireless work of its dedicated fans INCLUDING "Phoenix Simulation Software" who have donated over £15,000 from the sales of this Add On.

Vulcan 558 includes a faithful model from acclaimed developers PSS as it appeared on the Airshow Circuit prior to the massive rebuild,
