Hot on the heels of the successful release of its Supermarine Spitfire Mk1A, Aeroplane Heaven has announced today the development of another vintage airplane, this time a twin-engine airliner: the Lockheed Electra 10-A.
It’s a surprising announcement, especially given that Aeroplane Heaven claims it’s coming “real soon”. While we know that they’ve also been working on the DC-3, they have now revealed that the Electra is actually coming first, although an exact that has not been disclosed.
The Electra 10-A is arguably best know as the airplane used by Amelia Earhart on her Ill-fated expedition in 1937, although she was using a highly modified version of the aircraft.
Together with the announcement, Aeroplane Heaven unveiled the first shots of the aircraft, which is looking absolutely gorgeous in MSFS. The Spitfire was already a great showcase of the developers’ artistic work, and the Electra is also looking to be another exquisite model full of grace and detail.
Interestingly, the Electra 10-A was a direct competitor to the Boeing 247, another aircraft that is also under development for Microsoft Flight Simulator. Actually, we talked about it just a few days ago, and it’s a looker too!
Together with the DC-3, Aeroplane Heaven is really touching the hearts of many fans of the classic airliners. Let’s hope the team is able to deliver them with the quality they deserve, hopefully in a timely manner!
