Shockwave Productions has released a second official update to their latest Wings of Power aircraft, the Focke Wulf 190 “Butcher Bird” for Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004®. Shockwave want to thank the community for all their support and interest in our latest Wings of Power aircraft.

Built with “Absolute realism” flight technology
- Can be flown “by the book”

- “Absolute Realism” means the entire flight envelope is modeled via the actual pilot’s training manuals
- Authentic cruise performance under various conditions with realistic fuel economy
- Absolute Realism even delivers authentic “distance-to-altitude” performance under various power settings
- High engine torque means full power cannot be applied with brakes on or aircraft will “nose over”

Gorgeously constructed aircraft, inside and out, down to the last rivet

Professionally recorded and mastered engine sounds
- Realistic, deep radial engine characteristics captured inside and out at all power levels
- Stall buffet, canopy, ground roll, flaps, gyro, and authentic cockpit wind

Both modern and veteran warbird pilots helped create the “feel” of flight

Hi Scott and the Team!

Thank you so much for Patch1.2.
I 've never realised its issue for more than a week.

How stupid and sloppy I am.............

Beside various fixes and improvements, they could release bombs and drop tanks. What a progress since their initial release!!

Thanks again. Finally, may I ask Scott?
Your team is definitely making Dora series, isn't it?
Please tell us the developments. My purse is always ready,lol.

Kind Regards,
