A technological tour de force of epic proportions, the legend of the XB-70 Valkyrie very nearly surpasses the performance of this extraordinary aircraft. Built in the 1960s as a result of a USAF proposal for a supersonic bomber with high subsonic cruising speed and supersonic dash capabilities, the massive XB-70 was to have carried the same bombload as the B-52 Stratofortress at a higher supersonic speed than the Air Force's current strategic bomber, the B-58 Hustler. A later requirement specified that the plane be able to fly the entire mission at Mach 3.0 or greater, with a range of up to 10,500 miles and a maximum gross weight of 490,000 pounds. In the event, technology quickly relegated the Valkyrie to the role of supersonic research testbed and flagship of the USAF's public relations fleet. Ground-to-air missiles and advanced radar made the XB-70's supersonic mission impossible. The bomb bay of the aircraft was instead packed with data acquisition equipment.

I just bought this aircraft today, I'm sorry to say that it is not what I expected it to be:

First, the cockpit texture as well as other textures of the aircraft are very very poor and ¾ of the buttons and knobs are painted in, I think there are only 10 that are available and even that am not sure of. The flight dynamics of the aircraft are something left to be desired, it if flies like a WWII tank. I have been buying Flight Simulator Aircraft for a very long time. I have another professional aircraft to compare this with and it doesn't hold a candle to it.

This aircraft has been made by an amateur who is trying to sell their cheap aircraft to the public. To this person I would say stop selling your poorly made aircraft and go back to school and learn more before you sell anything else again.

Unfortunately I'm out the money I paid for and will not buy another aircraft from this person again. What is most disappointing is that I expected higher quality for my money and got this. And this aircraft is no quality at all, I do think that this person needs a lot of help in learning how to make a real Flight Simulator software that actually works and looks professional. You would say would you expect for 23 bucks, better quality than this.

If you're looking for something big and fast the fly around the virtual world, then this bird is for you. Beautiful model and terrific supporting features (ie sound, panels and effects). Primarily flying commercial and GA aircraft I don't use it nearly as much as I should. A terrific aircraft to fly at the edge of the envelope.
