Microsoft Flight Simulator Airbus A300 and Panavia Tornado

Today third-party developers shared plenty of news about aircraft and airports for Microsoft Flight Simulator, including a release. 

We start with iniBuilds, which revealed new screenshots of its upcoming Airbus A300-600R. Specifically, we get to see some interesting panels and parts that appear to be interactive.

The developer mentioned on Discord that development is progressing well, and you can see the results below.

 

Next, we move on to another aircraft, and it's IndiaFoxtEcho's Panavia Tornado. Unfortunately, we learn that it won't be ready for release by Christmas. Yet, we get to see a few new screenshots.

 

More screenshots come for DC Designs' Su-27 Flanker, with a development update. The decals for the cockpit are almost complete. Work remaining to do includes animations of gauges and flight controls, the paint kit, and refinement of the flight model, but it "shouldn't be too long" to release.

 

We then got an announcement and a trailer from Cockspur, which revealed its Embraer Phenom 100 bizjet. Details are scarce for the moment, but you can watch the trailer on the developer's Facebook page.
