Microsoft Flight Simulator is gaining a new legendary aircraft, Boeing 307 Stratoliner. Microsoft recently announced the addition of this legendary aircraft through a partnership with Airplane Heaven, an aviation simulation developer.
The trailer shows various cosmetic appearances of the Boeing 307 and a detailed overview of all the various flight paths available for the players who choose to buy this aircraft in-game. This is a very interesting development for the fans of this extremely popular aviation sim as they wait for the Dune collaboration coming to the game in November 2023.
The aircraft will be added to the Microsoft Flight Simulator 2023 as a part of the game’s Local Legends series. Boeing 307 was unveiled in the golden age of aviation, surprising people in late 1930s. This is the same aircraft that American industrialist Howard Hughes bought and converted into a flying penthouse in a bid to break all the contemporary flight records.
Boeing 307 in Microsoft Flight Simulator will feature four liveries
In Microsoft Flight Simulator 2023, the Boeing 307 Stratoliner will be available to the players for four types of liveries. These include Emerald Harbor, AREA (Columbian), World Travel, and Boeing Delivery. Players can take control of this massive and luxurious aircraft to complete various types of missions in-game. Players can purchase this aircraft for $14.99.
Standing 20 feet and 9 inches tall, with a wingspan of 107 feet and 3 inches, Boeing 307 is an exceptional artefact of aviation history. Born out of the need to bypass and fly over any extreme weather conditions, the aircraft features not only top of the line luxurious comfort, but also boasts a range of 1,300 miles and a top speed of 250 MPH (which is mighty impressive, considering it was made in 1930s).
Fans are excited about this new addition in Microsoft Flight Simulator
Fans are extremely happy with Microsoft’s decision of adding vintage commercial aircrafts in the game, which are famous for their aesthetics. Many are enamored by the beauty of the precisely rendered aircraft displayed in the announcement trailer.
Nice! Thanks team!

Someone at Asobo clearly has the thing for classic aircraft, haha. But, this is quite the looker. I'll probably pick it up just because it's pretty. ✈️
