The Huff-Daland company which was acquired by the Keystone Aircraft Corporation produced several bomber designs for the USAAC. The B6A model entered service in 1927. This is a native FSX Acceleration model. It has the usual animations and .dds textures. The VC is based on a real photo and has working gauges and animated flight controls. The gauges are back lighted for night ops. There is no 2D panel. By Paul Clawson.

The Huff-Daland company started designing and producing bombers for the USAAC in 1923. The company was purchased by the Keystone Aircraft Corporation in 1927 but continued to design and produce bombers that served until 1936. About 10 models were produced in various quantities. I have wanted to model a Keystone Bomber for the 12 years I've been in this business but only recently found 3 views that are acceptable for the task. Fortunately they were for the LB/B-6A which looks identical to all later versions. This model entered service in 1927. The earlier versions had the LB prefix which stood for light bomber or large bomber depending on your reference. The USAAC standardized on the prefix "B" for all bombers about the time the B-6A started service.

This is a native FSX Acceleration model. It has all the usual animations and .dds textures. The VC is based on an actual photo and has working gauges and animated flight controls. The gauges feature back lights for night duty. There is no 2D panel. Please note the pilot sat in the right hand chair in these early bombers.

INSTALLATION: Unzip KeyB6A.zip into a temporary folder. Copy the folder Keystone Bomber into the Airplanes folder of FSX. Open the gauges folder and copy the two .cab files into the Gauges folder of FSX. Be sure to copy the Beech_Baron .cab file from it's panel folder into the Gauges folder of FSX so the ignition switches will show. This model shows as the Keystone B-6A Large Bomber in the Aircraft Selection list.

Enjoy! Paul Clawson
