Third-party developers had news to share about upcoming Microsoft Flight Simulator add-ons, including the return of a project that has been quiet for a while.

We hear from the developer of the Tupolev Tu-134, which has been in development for a long time and has gone under the radar for exactly a year. Since they hail from Ukraine, quite obviously fans of the project were worried about their safety. Today we get the screenshot above and we hear that the project is alive under a new studio, which the developers hope to reveal soon. 

Speaking of Ukrainian developers, we also hear from Pyreeague, which released new screenshots of the upcoming East Midlands Airport (EGNX) in the UK. This time around, we take a look at the Holiday Inn Express near the airport.

A new reveal comes from Skyline Simulations, which is working on a new airport, Sacramento International Airport (KSMF) in the United States. For now, we get a single work-in-progress screenshot. It's obviously quite early in development.
