The Consolidated B-24 Liberator

The Liberator turned manufacturing into science with these huge machines delivered at a rate that still defies belief. At the peak, a B-24 Liberator was being finished every 100 minutes, 7 days a week! Put simply without the Liberty effort the allies must surely have lost.

One of the heaviest aircraft of the period, faster than the Fortress, similarly armed and with that raft of levers, the Liberator is a special aircraft. With a range of 3,000 miles and ceiling of 28,000ft, the B-24 can fly above the weather from Gander to Prestwick without its contemporaries' need to stop at Greenland or Iceland. Its tolerance of wartime overload confounded even its designers; a comforting fact for one vital Atlantic passenger - Winston Churchill. The B-24's greatest triumph was in extreme long range patrol over the oceans, closing the 'Mid-Atlantic Gap'. It was accredited with no less than 72 submarine kills. Small wonder it is recognized as a huge contributor to the death of the wolf-pack.

Make no mistake though. This trans-oceanic transport is no 747 or Airbus, no idiot-proof navigation system or comfy seat - the Liberator needs to be flown. Perhaps the ultimate 'heavy' of WW2 and with Alphasim's critically acclaimed simulation, this is a worthy addition to the virtual skies.

Into the Sim

Five authentic aircraft are included the B-24J, 'Satan's Gal', B-24D, 'Hellsadroppin II', B-24G, 'The Stork', B-24D, 'Strawberry Bitch', B-24J, 'Cocktail Hour'. These depicts the many liveries the B-24 bore, from bare-metal (reflective), to desert and olive drab (with nose art) . For many the B-24D with its distinctive glass nose will be of special interest.

These textures are beautifully weathered and complete with the distinctive wing stains of oil venting engines. All are beautifully rendered at 2048-pixel resolution for maximum clarity, whist the inclusion of template textures allow other liveries to be painted to suit.

Externally the aircraft is virtually unique. Not only does it feature animations for bomb bay doors, gunners and pilots, cowl flaps, prop pitch, and sliding cockpit windows but also the fascinating extendable ventral ball turret.

A great joy of this aircraft is the sheer size and warbird context. Few large modern 'streamliners' can offer such wealth of texture and model detail. This is a full FSX model with all FSX features (bump mapping, self-shadowing, bloom etc) and includes self shadowing in the virtual cockpit.

Flying the B-24

The Visual Load Editor (VLE) makes for simple loading and optional fitments such as bombs. This is not merely visual as the aircraft will be adjusted to the extra weight. Crew figures include the toggle-able animated pilots and gunners, and even a fluttering national flag to take VIPs to those historic strategy meetings!

The VLE also includes documentation for the engine settings. And what engines! There is nothing to beat the sound of a big radial - except four big radials! Starting them up in correct sequence, smoke burst from the exhausts as they fire - the extremely high quality Turbine Studios ound-set includes FSX specific sound cones for exquisite realism - this machine has a soul.

Stepping into the cockpit is to recognize the B-24 as the perfect machine to learn the craft of flying a real aircraft. What difference does it make to fly an aircraft with wartime overload or fly transatlantic with none of today's navigation luxuries? Get it right and truly show your mettle - get it wrong and maybe you should consider a future slung below in the ball turret?

For absolute realism this simulator even includes an Excel spreadsheet to calculate correct throttle and supercharger settings.

Inside, the pilot is treated to an authentic all-xml 2D, hi-res glazed effect gauges, custom pop-ups for autopilot, electrical and fuel systems, radios, and is fully 'mousable'.

Switching to the virtual cockpit is again highly authentic with many mousable controls and animations. Not least the cockpit dominating twelve-lever quadrant, comprising turbochargers, throttles and mixture levers.

A well executed flight in this amazing warbird truly rewards like few others!
