• Review: Captain Sim - B-52 Driver

    B-52 Driver from Captain Sim features the Boeing B-52H Stratofortress heavy bomber. The model has lots of features like a crosswind crab system unique to the B-52, terrain radar, high resolution textures, drag chute, flexing wings, complete upper flight deck and lots more. Though now an older release, reviewer Wisnu Prabowo finds it still has lots to offer FSX pilots.
