This huge and good-looking aircraft was planned as a transatlantic airliner for BOAC. It was powered by eight Bristol Centaurus radial engines, and flew for the first time in 1949. The Brabazon never entered production; it was unable to compete with aircraft like the Douglas DC-6/7 and the Lockheed Constellation, so only one prototype G-AGPW was built. It was broken up after three years of flight testing. By Jens B. Kristensen.

Installation in FS2004:

  • Run the included setup program. When you get to the "Destination Folder" dialog, click the 'Browse' button and locate your Microsoft Games\Flight Simulator 9\aircraft folder.
  • Continue the setup!

The gauges are to some extent standard gauges of Flight Simulator, others are by me, but with much inspiration from gauges by Microsoft.

Magneto switches, starter buttons, prop feathering buttons and some engine gauges are based on public domain gauges by Mike (MoparMike) Wagner, converted to XML by myself.

The ILS indicator is based on xml code by Saviero Maurri (Vickers Varsity panel), bitmaps by me.

The autopilot is by myself, but part of the xml code (the turn button) is inspired Saviero Maurris autopilot for the DH Dove.

A number of gauges (mostly switches) are, with permission from Tom Gibson, based on work by Tom himself, Kevin Trinkle, Ernie Kennedy and Ken 'Mitch' Mitchell. I have used complete gauges from them (cowl flap switches), or used the bitmaps from their c-style gauges and made xml-versions of them.

Hans-Joerg Naegele has kindly given me permission to use gauges from his Lockheed 049 Constellation panel (VNConnie049.cab), directly or modified. I have used a few of these directly; in other cases I have combined Hans-Joerg's xml-code with gauge bitmaps from Tom Gibsons gauges. A good example is the starter gauge.

Sounds: The sound files are by Mike Hambly, updated to FSX / FS2004 format by myself. I would have liked to have Mike Hambly's permission to include them, but the email address in his files apparently no longer works.

This plane was made with FSDS 3.0, finished with with FSDS 3.5. Textures with Paint Shop Pro and DxtBmp.
