Now available from Icarus is their CFS2/FS2002 version of the Junkers 287 featuring two skins, working virtual cockpit, multiresolution, animations and more. For full details, click on Read More.

Designed by Hans Wocke who after extensive wind tunnel testing, elected for a forward swept wing design to improve the sub sonic performance, the V1 was made to test out this new lay out in real life. The aeroplane was constructed from various different types of aircraft, the undercarriage from a B-24 Liberator, forward and rear fuselage of an He 177, and the tail from a Ju 188, the only new parts being the wings and center fuselage and powered by four Junkers Jumo 004 engines. It made it's first flight on the 16/8/1944 and after 17 test flights proved the concept to have excellent handling at all speeds, the second prototype V2 had a new fuselage, cockpit and undercarriage.
