Third-party developers have released new screenshots of upcoming add-ons for Microsoft Flight Simulator, including aircraft and scenery. 

We start with Blue Bird Simulations, which released a development update for its Boeing 757 alongside new screenshots via Just Flight

"It's been a while so here's a quick update on how things are shaping up on the 757 200/300. Over the past few months the team at BlueBird Simulations have been putting in some serious hours on the project and although this is a huge project, great progress has been made on various areas. Here's a quick rundown on some of the main updates and enhancements with accompanying screenshots. All WIP of course at this point.

Added fully functional LNAV, VNAV, SID, STAR , holding patterns and more with regards to FMS capabilities.

Custom hydraulic system, IRS, pneumatic system has been implemented. More details will follow as other custom systems are being worked on currently.

Custom spoiler animation based on the different spoiler functions with different extension limits and times.

Work on the virtual cabin has begun.

Numerous additions to the external model including lots of detail on the wings, from all of the flap track mechanisms to the spoiler actuators and wiring harness.

Completely reworked VC textures, animations and various parts. the aim is to show preview of this work around the middle of the year.

The team have recorded dozens of sounds from the real 757 , from the external APU start up and shut down, hydraulic pumps, inside the flight deck will feature all of the aural warnings, to switches/ knobs, ambient sounds, and internal engine sounds from both the PW and RR engines.

Continuation of work on the high quality exterior textures, currently still WIP."

iniBuilds released some new screenshots of its upcoming John F. Kennedy International Airport (KJFK) in New York, United States. Interestingly, the developer also mentions that the release is "close."

Moving on to Europe, we get a few new screenshots of Copenhagen Airport, Kastrup (EKCH) in Denmark from SimNord. The developer is currently working on Terminal 2/3 and specifically the D stands.

Last, but certainly not least, we move on to... not Europe, with East Midlands Airport (EGNX) by Pyreegue, specifically a look at the terminal and one of the Skylink buses.
