X-Plane 8 And 9 – Avro Anson Mk I The Avro Anson was a British twin-engine, multi-role aircraft that served with the Royal Air Force, Fleet Air Arm and numerous other air forces during the Second World War and afterwards. Named for British admiral George Anson, it was originally designed for maritime reconnaissance but was soon rendered obsolete. However it was rescued from obscurity by its suitability as a multi-engine air crew trainer, becoming the mainstay of the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan. Thanks to Dataroots for the sound files, Scooter for the pilot figures and to Ho-Hun for some of the custom instruments. By Jacques Brault.
