Aeroplane Heaven has made no compromises with the modelling of this wonderful warbird, which represents the actual aircraft 'factory fresh' as in 1945.

Real-life pilots have been involved from the start of the development to ensure accuracy inside and out. WWII-era flight manuals have been followed to ensure that everything works as it should, from start-up to shut-down.

Once in the air, the help of restorer and experienced P-51D owner/pilot Maurice Hammond has ensured this P-51 flies as well as she looks.

There are multiple high-fidelity paint schemes including: Marinell, Janie, Big Beautiful Doll, Old Crow, Jersey Jerk,Ferocious Frankie, RNZAF, Cripes 'a' Mighty, LouIV and more - all models carry bump-mapping, specular shine and light-bloom effects.


EXTERIOR

Fully selectable weapons and tank load-outs, controlled in-sim via special load-out panel in cockpit.

Functional emergency canopy release in the Virtual Cockpit, which jettisons the canopy in both interior and exterior views.

Hydraulic 'bleed-down' for undercarriage doors, controlled from cockpit pressure lever.

Removable engine cover reveals a detailed Packard Merlin engine with glycol tanks and other details.

Removable wing hatches reveal accurately detailed .50 cal machine guns, ammunition belts and loading chutes.

Fully animated pilot with choice of military or civilian 'owner-pilot' (Maurice Hammond) model. (Pilot leaves aircraft when hatches are open to enable inspection of cockpit.)

INTERIOR

Practically every switch, button and knob animates in the VC with all functioning as in the real thing (within the limitations of FSX).

Selectable wingspan and range controls on gun sight. Switchable reticule light and animated drop-down bulb holder.

Removable control stick and throttle quadrant to aid instrument reading and switch functionality.

Functioning emergency canopy release lever.

Cold, dark cockpit start possible with all instrument readings to the correct numbers.

Accurate starting procedure including correct priming, oiler and boost sequence.

War Emergency Power setting on throttle with correct 'wire-gate'.

Fully animated gauges including accurate engine management and 'tankage'.

All trimming levers and knobs animated and functional.

Specially designed camera views give a pilot's eye view 'over the nose', just as you would see if sitting in the real aircraft!


SOUNDS, EFFECTS & SPECIAL FEATURES

Full high-fidelity sound set even includes the characteristic gun-port 'whistle' on flypast.

Effects package includes start-up exhaust, recognition lights, custom animations from the pilots and more.

Fantastic documentation with original performance charts.

Exclusive 16-page full-colour feature on 'Marinell' with history and the incredible story of her restoration by Maurice Hammond.


LATEST VERSION 1.2 OF THE P51-D MUSTANG

Following feedback and requests from customers, v1.2 of the P51-D Mustang incorporates the following improvements:

Greatly improved textures across all models with significantly improved blending and reflective properties.

Inclusion of additional NEW paint scheme, with LOUIV now with 'RAF Green' paint to reflect war time paint scheme. The classic blue as on the current restored aircraft of LOUIV is still available.

Magneto now fixed so it is not possible to fly with mags switched to off, either in manual or automatic start.

The default FSX radio panel can be switched on/off using the VHF Radio unit on/off switch in the aircraft.


Like the Indian braves of the old southwest whose favourite in battle was the small speedy Mustang, young fighter pilots today, with their newly won wings, almost without exception want to the fly the namesake of that sleek and powerful warhorse. And no wonder. For the P51 is truly a pilot's airplane. It ranks with any fighter in the world."  P-51D Pilot Training Manual, 1945.
