Thanks For The Visit !
Farmington, CT USA July 18th, 2005 - Shockwave Productions, the critically acclaimed developer of Wings of Power, announced today the imminent release of the latest Wings of Power aircraft, the Focke Wulf 190 “Butcher Bird” for Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004®.
“When this aircraft appeared on the scene the British were unable to put anything in the sky to effectively counter it. It was the most maneuverable WWII aircraft ever produced, and with its higher top speed and climb rate, it could decide when and where to fight. The aircraft is just so beautiful to experience. The visuals and sound just make cruising anywhere so enjoyable, but it is a true thoroughbred performer. Like all of our aircraft built with Absolute Realism technology, every variant performs exactly as it should in all flight regimes. Watch the forums (www.shockwaveproductions.com/forum) for screenshots and the latest developments,” said Tim Gallagher of Shockwave Productions.
