The A2A Wings of Silver Stratocruiser is unlike any aircraft you have flown in Microsoft Flight Simulator.
The Boeing Stratocruiser is a double-deck, pressurized, four-engine, medium to long range, high altitude, high speed, commercial transport plane. The airplaph, a service ceiling of 34,000 feet, and a maximum range of approximately 4,000 miles. To its passengers, if flne is designed for a normal gross weight of 147,000 pounds, a high speed of approximately 350 mew them in first class comfort higher, faster, and farther than anything before.
The 377 paved Boeing’s entry into the airline business, and you can still see this technology in use today. The Stratocruiser and its massive Pratt & Whitney R4360 engines, represents the highest step in the evolution of aircraft piston-engine technology. These engines were so powerful, that this huge Stratocruiser set the transcontinental speed record from Seattle to D.C.; beating both the Lockheed Constellation and the North American P51 Mustang. Even by today's standards this aircraft has amazing performance. There is also a Pregnant Guppy variant that was custom-made to transport rocket components for the Saturn V to NASA. You have to see it fly to believe it.
A2A Simulations has crafted and pioneered many new technologies for this aircraft which has become the flagship of the Wings of Silver line for Microsoft Flight Simulator X. Never before has the team worked so diligently to produce what we feel, and you may agree, is the most accurate representation of a true "classic" airliner.
