OK,ok,I know it's not a Classic Brit in our usual sense of the word,but it did serve with the RAF and
many other airforces under the wartime RAF umbrella.

Not sure whether anyone knows this beautiful thing,I've been flying it for years(V1.5),but RCS
have updated her to Version 2.5.

She comes in all three flavours,FSX,FS9 and Fs2002.

Download her here:

Screenies so you can have a shufty before you jump in,and,yes,it's bloody well FREE !!!!!!!

If you like light bombers,especially the B25,known as "A Gentleman's Aeroplane",then give her a go
I'm sure you won't be dissapointed.
BTW,she can be a pig to start when cold,but if you prime 'em properly and go through the correct start up sequence
she'll rattle into life.

I believe that he was at one time involved in the MAAM project to model their B-25, but there was some falling out between the parties involved. So he went off and did one of his own.

Such things happen on t'internet, the panel on this aircraft is certainly one of the highest quality freeware ones out there. I think 1.5 is the version I have stashed away somewhere.

Could be just the bird for blasting bumbling Orsters out of the way in the circuit. :woohoo:

That's right Allan.

Roy Chaffin(THE man behind RCS Panels)did his B-25 and offered it to MAAM when they
announced a B-25.
He and Jan Visser had fallen out,so he went his own way,they went theirs and
did their version,Briefing Time.

As I've said,I've been flying Roy's original for years(been on a few Sunday night MPs with it),
it looks,sounds and flies great.

I don't know what is built into the latest version of the panel but it takes a ludicrous amount of time to load on my PC, after I get back tomorrow night I'll see if I can merge the old panel with the new model.
