06/10/08: If it looks ‘Right’ it flies ‘Right’: Alphasim’s Hawker Hunter now available from Flight1: “Hawker Hunter - The E-type Jaguar of fighter aircraft!”
The Hawker Hunter is a record breaker, cold war warrior and it’s now legal for a PPL to fly one! The Hunter is perhaps the most impossibly beautiful aircraft ever assembled. No, not assembled - but sculpted as though from a single block of aircraft grade aluminium. Designed by Sir Sidney Camm, an engineer whose designs span biplane to jump jet, the Hunter is a remarkable machine. The Rolls Royce Avon will propel you at Mach 0.94 at sea level, and let you climb at no less than 10,500ft/min to ‘touch the face of God’ at 51,000ft. Hunters were the chosen mount of the famous Black Arrows, their livery one of many in this simulation. Their 22-plane formation loop, set a record which stands to this day.
