This first-generation light bomber was manufactured in large numbers during the 1950s and set a number of speed and altitude records. Its adaptability meant that the aircraft also served in tactical bombing and photographic and electronic reconnaissance roles in conflicts on several continents.
This Canberra PR9 (Photo-Reconnaissance) variant is modelled in exceptional detail and features a true 3D cockpit with fully functional custom-coded fuel, electrical, fire detection and hydraulics systems.
High Definition textures are used throughout and a flight monitoring system is included, along with stereo cockpit sounds, authentic autopilot, custom GPS, interactive checklists for every phase of flight, accurate night lighting and numerous perfectly replicated animations.
Accurately modelled using real-world aircraft plans
Numerous animations including canopy, navigator hatch, pilot ladder, ground power units, chocks and retractable landing light
Accurately animated control surfaces including ailerons, flaps, tail-plane, elevators and three-position airbrakes
2048x2048 textures are used to produce the highest possible texture clarity
Bump and specular mapping use throughout the aircraft to produce a truly 3D feel
Signature landing gear configuration with low-position nose-gear is faithfully modelled and animated using real-world extension/retraction times
A truly 3D virtual cockpit right down to the cables and piping - every instrument is fully constructed in 3D with smooth animations
Every switch, knob and gauge is functional
Cockpit textures feature wear and tear based on reference photos taken in the real aircraft to produce an authentic environment
Highly detailed ejection seat
Comprehensive and fully functioning communications and navigation fit:
GMA340 – COM/NAV audio control unit with test mode and functioning marker lights
SL30 – COM 2/NAV2 radio unit with functioning menu system and the ability to save/recall commonly used frequencies
GTN650 – touchscreen GPS unit which can also be used to set aircraft fuel levels and control COM1 / NAV1
Modern horizontal situation indicator (HSI)
2x GI-206 VOR gauges
Authentic autopilot with track, glide, altitude, pitch and bank hold modes
Functioning oxygen regulator panel – watch the oxygen quantities drop with usage!
Interactive checklists for every stage of the flight
