Probably the most recognised US Navy aircraft of WWII, due to its distinctive folding cranked-wing design, this Corsair has been built over the most accurate plans available, including original factory plans and drawings. The 'Birdcage' nickname is due to the copious cockpit glazing framing which was replaced in other versions of the Corsair with a single-piece blown canopy.

This highly detailed model features a fully functioning virtual cockpit, intricate cowl flap mechanisms, oil cooler and intercooler doors, wing folding mechanics, tail hook, animated bomb and drop tank release and more. An additional external model depicts the F4U-1B clipped-wing variant of the Corsair which was flown by the Royal Navy, who clipped the wings for easier storage in its cramped hangar decks and for better stall behaviour.

  • Accurately modelled F4U-1 Corsair, designed using real-world aircraft plans
  • Additional clipped wing F4U-1B Royal Navy external model included
  • Six authentic paint schemes:
     - No. 15 ‘Daphne C’, flown by Capt. James N. Cupp of VMF-213, Munda, September 1943
     - 17-F-13 in the tri-colour scheme as it appeared aboard the USS Bunker Hill with the US Navy VF-17 units in 1943
     - No. 576 ‘Marine’s Dream’, flown by Major Gordon of the ‘Flying Aces’ VMF-222, December 1943
     - No. 18 ‘Bubbles’ of VMF-124, flown by Lt. Bill Crowe
     - 5A British Royal Navy F4U-1B with clipped wings
     - RNZAF NZ5201, recently restored and resident in New Zealand
  • Numerous animations including canopy, cowl flap mechanisms, oil cooler and intercooler doors, wing folding mechanics, tail hook, animated bomb and drop tank release
  • High definition textures are used to produce the highest possible texture clarity, and bump and specular mapping are used throughout the aircraft to produce a truly 3D feel
  • Beautifully detailed Pratt & Whitney R-2800 Double Wasp radial engine
  • Realistic radial stereo sound set
  • Authentic animated virtual cockpit
  • Accurate flight dynamics
  • Detailed and animated cockpit in exterior model
  • Cockpit sounds such as switches, knobs and levers
  • In-game options - special configuration panel allows for seat height adjustment and view angles in the VC and the removal of the pilot when on the ground
  • PDF manual including flight guide
  • PSD paint kit

In 1938 the US Navy Bureau of Aeronautics issued request for proposals for a ship-borne fighter aircraft. Vought-Sikorsky answered the call with a proposed design powered by a 2,000hp twin-row, 18-cylinder radial from Pratt & Whitney known as the ‘Twin Wasp’, one of the most powerful aero engines of the period.

In the first year of production, 1942, Vought produced 178 F4U-1s. These aircraft soon found their way to front line duty in the Pacific Theatre, immediately flying combat missions in 1943 with the US Marine Corps based in the islands. The first combat mission was carried out by VMF-124 on February 11th, 1943. The Corsair served with great distinction throughout the remainder of WWII and later in the Korean conflict. Later variants of the Corsair were employed by other international forces such as the French and Argentine navies, flying on into the 1950s and 1960s. Over 12,000 were eventually built and many airworthy examples still exist in private ownership.

BIJAN HABASHI - 4 SEASON PACK V6.04 - MSFS
David
Brings much more realism in a subtle way with more variety. I haven't noticed any performance issues to mention
FSCGAA - AUSTRALIA-MARLA AIRPORT YALA P3D4-5
Georg
In reality, the little Australian outback village of MARLA is an important place as it is located at the junction of Oodnadatta Track and Stuart Highway with some facilities as petrol station on the long way to Alice Springs. However, the village itself is not included in this scenery; the "airport" really is nothing more than an bituminized airstrip in the wilderness, thus giving some reminders for Austrlian travellers. -
My proposal for further development: I-
n future, an update of this scenery should remove some bush on the airstrip's beginning and could furthermore include the few houses at Marla itself, the petrol station and some of the typical huge Australian trucks called road trains - this would bring more life into the scenery and one more star. The price is ok but should not be increased.

Wonderful, it's very nice ! Thank you ! I love look in my plane the cactus in the desert region.

Rod
Great addition to MSFS. I have one improvement suggestion thought. Your catalogue of products, which are variations of the same genre, is confusing for potential customers, and as they are all different version numbers it is confusing to upgrade. My suggestion is to have just one product - the 4 season pack and remove the others.

SCREENCODE GMBH - BLUE DANUBE AIRPORT LINZ - AUSTRIA - LOWL MSFS
Valentin
First I was amazed of the qauality of this addon. They said that the missing part of LOWL will follow in "the coming months". That was in January 2021. Now it is August and there was zero progress. No updates. Nothing. I found a free version of LOWL which features all missing parts (yes for free). While the textrures are slightly less detailed - the free version is recieving updates monthly. This is very sad - since the quality so far is good - but I would not recommend buying it since the product is incomplete. Very sad to see this vasted...
