The Bristol Bombay was designed to serve both as a bomber and a troop transport. It first flew in 1935. It was too obsolete to use as a bomber in Western Europe when the war broke out but served admirably in the Middle East. This is a native FSX Acceleration model. It is painted for service in the Middle East desert. The Pegasus sound file is by Gary Jones. The VC has animated flight controls, working gauges and is based on photos of similar aircraft of the same era. By Paul Clawson.

description="The Bristol Bombay first flew in 1935. Despite the all-metal, monoplane construction, the Bombay retained some features which were outdated at the time, such as its fixed undercarriage. Although it was outclassed for the European theatre, it saw some service ferrying supplies to the British Expeditionary Force in France in 1940. Its main service was in the Middle East, replacing the Vickers Type 264 Valentia. The Bombay was capable of dropping 250 lb bombs held on external racks, and was also used to drop 20 lb anti-personnel mines, which were armed and thrown out of the cargo door by hand. The aircraft flew bombing sorties in Abyssinia, Italian Somaliland, Iraq, and Benghazi. Obsolete as a bomber by European standards, the Bombays were predominately used as transports, ferrying supplies and evacuating the wounded."

Bristol Bombay. This is a very nice flying sim. The engines are throaty already during run, shutdown, and re-start. It has an incredible hang time at zero throttles so bring it in nice and slow. Very nice 3D effects of the airframe. No doors, no frills, and not needed. Upgrades of those in the future would be nice. I am building my fleet up with my long lost British cousins, that I have unforgivingly neglected over the years. The is a very nice download of a very nice job. Well done!
