Messerschmitt Bf-109Z "Zwilling"

Discover this unusual and highly challenging Messerschmitt experiment, the Bf-109Z "Zwilling". The first prototype was built, but was never flown due to bomb damage followed later by project cancellation. You will, however, be able to experience every aspect what was likely to have been the "Z"s amazing and skill-demanding performance, from highly demanding take-off and landing behaviours to it's handling qualities at combat speed. You also become the Test Pilot, and are free to make modifications to the aerodynamics in the effort to extract every possible performance increase. A high level of flying skill is needed.

History

There is not a great deal of information on this ultimately un-flown version of the Bf-109. The origins probably lie with a precedent within the Luftwaffe for the joining of existing airframes in order to create a new type, an example being Heinkel joining together two He-111 bombers in order to create the He-111Z (“Z" also for "Zwilling", the German word for "Twin"). The He-111 Zwilling was designed to be a heavy transport and glider towing aircraft, and was a successful design much liked by its pilots.

This experimental prototype, intended to be a heavy destroyer rather than a fighter, was based on two Bf 109F airframes joined together by means of a new wing center section and new stabilizer, both of constant chord, in a similar way to the later F-82 Twin Mustang. The right fuselage cockpit was faired over and the pilot flew the aircraft from the left side fuselage.

Additional modifications included moving the main undercarriage hinges further inboard, and subsequent substantial modifications to the outer wings’ forward structure in order to accommodate the repositioned undercarriage plus the Rheinmetall‑Borsig Mk 108 30mm canon and ammunition.

Four variants of this aircraft were initially proposed. One was a destroyer armed with five 30 mm (1.18 in) cannon and up to a 1,000 kg (2,200 lb) bomb load, another a fighter-bomber armed with two MK 108 cannon and up to two 2,200 lb. bombs. Both airframes were to be powered by the DB605 engine. A third and fourth were designed on paper and would be similar to the first two airframes but powered by Jumo 213 engines.

Only one Bf 109Z was built (presumably at Regensberg), and it was never flown, having been damaged in its hangar during an Allied bombing raid in 1943. Never rebuilt, the project was permanently abandoned in 1944.

AFS-DESIGN - AIRWOLF V2 FSX
David
This is purely a nostalgia purchase for me. If you were a fan of the TV show then you may understand. However as far as flying is concerned there are some problems. First you have to turn all realism sliders to easy, turn off “engine stress causes damage” and deactivate crash and collision detection settings. Then you can fly this as intended. This thing violates physics in some hilarious ways. The controls in helicopter mode are heavy. It’s often like flying a brick. Push the throttle past 50% and the blades become variable geometry wings. It can max out around Mach 2 and climb to fl650 which is laughably impossible, but you have to suspend reality and accept the fantasy in order to enjoy flying this. Overall it’s not that great of a flight model and leaves a lot to be desired in terms of controllability-
. Also for some reason you have to load other cabin views as completely new aircraft. This makes no sense to me. Every other add on I own load once and then just cycle through cameras to get other internal views like the other seats, stations or passenger areas. Not here though, nope. You must stop everything, go to select aircraft, then select the other internal cabin view aircraft options and fly from there only. Meaning if you choose “Cabin” view you cannot switch camera to the VC or vice versa. Of all my many many add ons only AFS does this. So if you can forgive the fantasy of this physics defying chopper and get a warm feeling for the Airwolf TV show, then sure….buy it. If you’re looking for anything resembling a realistic experience, then move along or you’ll be terribly disappointed.

This is the design that I first saw as a toy when I was a child. It was responsible for getting me interested in helicopters at an early age. A nice chopper that is pretty agile, and a little challenging to master flying and hovering. Not bad not great but definitely worth the price. Fun to fly around the many roof top helipads in Los Angeles Cities X add on scenery.
FLYSIMWARE LLC - CESSNA 195-X 2012 FSX P3D
David
A real nice aircraft that didn’t really catch on as much as expected due to high operating costs. Thankfully we don’t worry about such things as simmers, and can enjoy this unique aircraft. It’s way faster than your average Cessna high wing. Cruises easily around 155kias under 10k feet. The model is indeed a bit behind Carenado standards, but not at all bad. The lighting is pretty good offering a nice ambience at night in the cabin. The flight model seems to be carefully designed making for enjoyable flights. I’ll take this over my 172 any day. I recommend picking up when on sale for sure. Only dinged it minus 1 star because it could’ve had more liveries

What a beautiful and fun airport! Fedex hub, with amazing details. A must have.

Georg
I want to add to my yesterday's lines: in the original P3D, YALA (Marla) is not included. However, after installation, you find it as YALA in the flight planner in usual way.
JUSTSIM - STUTTGART AIRPORT - X-PLANE-11
Jannik
Well made, I'd say. It looks beautiful and it is acurrate(im from STR). The only thing i have to mention is the Tupolew Tu-154, parked at the Cargo Terminal. It's missing. but otherwise genious Scenery! I'd totally recommend
AEROSOFT - AIRPORT STUTTGART XP X-PLANE 11
Jannik
I bought it fom an other store a few months ago, and I really dont like ist. i am from Stuttgart. The Ground textures are really worse, and there ist no 3d grass. The textures of the buildings are 144p. The aircraft museum on the top of the terminal is non-existant. It doesn't work with sam or autogate. I'd maybe recommend this for 5$, but not 22! If you want a tip from me: Get Justsim! It is really good.
FSXCENERY - KTLH TALLAHASSE FLA MSFS
Raul
A little disappointed with this scenery. I know compare to others is cheap but it looks kind of cartoonist and it have static jetways not moving jetways, which in default sceneries are standard. The developer does not specified that the scenery does not include moving jetways in the description and that is a bigger letdown. Besides that it looks good.

A nice small aerodrome in central Australia, I'm looking forward to your GFLL.

I was a A300-600R engineer 27 years ago, this systems are more reality that I have spent a lot of time on this plane.
