Progress has been made on Microsoft Flight Simulator’s upcoming Boeing 757-200/300 by developers BlueBird Simulations and Just Flight.

In a development update, the team said they have spent recent weeks focussing on virtual cockpit animations, the FMS (flight management system) and flight dynamics.

90% of the virtual cockpit is said to have been completed, with a little extra work yet to be completed on the FMS.

Externally, the landing gear has been the focus of their attention, with the flight model also having been adjusted.

The iconic single-aisle twinjet was launched in the early 1980’s and its impressive range and versatility has seen it fly all around the globe.
