Boeing B-52 Stratofortress Update. This is an update of the B-52H by Mike Stone. The author has updated the flight dynamics, and added smoke. No virtual cockpit. This is the whole aircraft. By Bob Chicilo.

This is an update for FSX of the B-52H by Mike Stone. I have updated the flight dynamics, and added smoke. This is the whole aircraft.

Unzip to a folder of your choice. Copy the aircraft folder to the airplanes folder and the effect to the main effects folder.

The crew door opens with shift+E. The bomb bay doors open with shift+E+2. There seems to be a problem with the bomb bay doors. It seems you have to hit the keys simultaneously and just right for the doors to open or close. This may be because I use a Windows driven Dvorak keyboard, rather than a hard-wired Dvorak keyboard; or it may be a problem for everyone.

I did not put all the wheels in for this update because FSX doesn't accept some wheel arrangements, or maybe just don't like more than 6 wheels total.

See [reference speeds] section of the aircraft.cfg file for operating speeds.

Anyone: You have my permission to use any of my updates with the following conditions: One, you don't try to make money with them. Two, you don't try to hurt, or take something from anyone by using them.

Excellent airplane but needs radios for navigation. Any fix for it? Thank you.

regarding previous comment, using Win7 64bit Sp1. I just installed this on a winXP sp3 32bit system my dad uses, it ran fine for him but is a slow computer not hooked up to our TV so that we can all play and watch together..
