Colimata Concorde FXP released in Early Access

Developer Colimata has released Concorde FXP for X-Plane 11. Concorde is one of the few aircraft nearly everybody recalls. Beside the Boeing 747, Concorde is one of the most iconic airplanes of all time. Now we can hear the roaring sound of engines during takeoff in our home simulators!

With more than 1000 click regions and 4k cockpit textures, Concorde FXP is looking really good so far. But you may ask: Why is it in early access?
