    Virtavia P2V-7 Neptune for FSX

    Lockheed's P-2V Neptune was a Cold War maritime patrol aircraft that was involved in many surveillance operations during the 1950s and 1960s. The details of these exploits are still not entirely public. These missions could be extremely dangerous, the Soviet Air Force being given tacit approval to shoot down the Neptunes on sight without paying too much heed to whether or not the plane was actually in international air space.

    The most famous Neptune was a P2V-1, the "Truculent Turtle", which flew non-stop without refueling from Perth, Australia, to Columbus, Ohio, a distance of 11,235 miles. This type, P2V-7, was first flown in 1954. In 1962 it was re-designated as the SP-2H, OP-2E, or AP-2H. The Neptune served until the mid 1970's, when it was replaced by the P-3 Orion.

    This model is a 2020 remastered version of the original 2006 package.

      Good point, although I purchased it back in 2015 so it may be a bit presumptuous to expect a free upgrade. Plus I bought it from PC Aviator Australia and I think they have ceased to operate, so I'm out of luck there anyway. Oh well, I can still happily fly the old version...

      Also, I really don't like the way developers are offering their products nowadays, into two or three separate purchases for each platform, which require paying the same amount over and over again for essentially the same thing. Where are the days of all FSX and P3D versions for one price!? Didn't expect it from Virtavia, they used to be one of the "good guys"
