Laminar Research has released their latest flying simulator for the iPhone in the form of X-Plane Extreme [App Store]. The newest version contains "four of the most unusual, fast, maneuverable, or advanced planes ever made" according to the developer. These include:
- F-22 Raptor - by far the most maneuverable and powerful fighter in the sky
- SR-71 Blackbird - the fastest airplane in the world, exceeding Mach-3, exceeding 70,000 feet
- B-1 'Bone' Bomber - this huge ungainly bird still has terribly high stall speeds and limited roll rate due to it's high weight
- B-2 'Jet' Bomber - The B-2 has.. umm... no tail. At all. No vertical stabilizer. No horizontal stabilizer. And no flaps.
Meanwhile, the developer has just released new updates to their other flight simulator applications: X-Plane 9, X-Plane-Helicopter, and X-Plane-Airliner. These latest updates include new instrument panel types, and new flying regions.
