MSFS – Development update June 6, 2024

Short news from the Asobo team. Off course the Developer Stream from some day’s ago on tuesday. They answered many questions from the community and also announced several future updates for Microsoft Flight Simulator including two new City Updates, a new Famous Flyer bundle (more info below) and the next Local Legend, the Boeing 707! In case you missed it live, you can watch the full video on YouTube

The new Famous Flyer bundle is available from the in-sim Marketplace now and consists of two aircraft,

  • C-47D Skytrain and the
  • Waco CG-4A glider.

Both of these aircraft played an important role in World War II’s Normandy landings (Operation Overlord) which occurred exactly 80 years ago today on June 6, 1944. In recognition of this anniversary, for every purchase of the Famous Flyer 9 pack made between June 6, 2024 and July 5, 2024, Microsoft will donate 100% of each sale to the USO ( More information about the USO is available by contacting them at
