• Review: Virtavia - B-36 Peacemaker

    Virtavia offers FS2004 and FSX pilots a rather unique plane with the B-36 Peacemaker, the mega-bomber from the 1950s. It's an older model and as reviewer Michael Hayward observes thus does not live up to modern standards. Most difficult is that MSFS cannot accurately model the 6 or 10 engines the plane carries. Still, it has its merits for those interested in this historic aircraft.
