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.

GODZONE VF - REAL NEW ZEALAND NZCH/CHRISTCHURCH P3D
Reydon
Great Scenery! An excellent airport and a very worthy addition for New Zealand flying.
ISLAND CREATIONS - FUERTEVENTURA AERIAL IMAGERY MSFS
Paul
Excellent product! Fuerteventura is tranformed in certain areas, especially along the coast near Corralejo, where the downtown areas are crisp and are a joy to fly over. There is an overall sense of coherency with this product, with no deviation in color and hue. And the absence of green roads makes this add-on worth the price alone. With that said, there are areas where the resolution should be higher, but overall it's an excellent add-on and improves the scenery considerably. The autogen objects also populate nicely on the terrain, and the default digital elevation model just seems to conform better with this ortho. Based on my experience with this product, I'll be purchasing the Lanzarote product because I love flying over the Canary Islands. Great work, Island Creations! Please offer a new Ortho for La Palma!

I love flying in and out of this airport. Definitely one of my favorites in the entire sim. Bought it from their store when it first came out. One thing they should focus on is optimizing the airport's performance more maybe easy up on the animated terminals in a sim that is single threaded limited and surrounded with photogrammetry. The city area runs flawless and looks great at night.

Nice addition to the PMDG 777. It was worth the wait for sure.
SOUTH OAK CO - LANAI HAWAII MSFS
Chuck
I love flying between airports in the Hawaiian islands so I was thrilled to see another nicely modeled Hawaii airport for MSFS! The only knock I have on this airport is that none of the airport terminal interiors are modeled. However, there are some static people and animated passengers outside the buildings to add some life to the airport area. There's also plenty of cars in the parking areas as well as baggage carts and other items lying around which give the airport that used look and feel. The PBR textures and materials are nicely done. The attention to detail such as signs, fuel tanks, etc. adds to the immersion. All this detail and no noticeable hit to my framerates is a bonus! Well done!

The scenery is very good, I really liked it so the 5 stars are well deserved.

Nice scenery to enjoy the caribbean, thanks to the developer to bring this good quality scenery to the flight sim community.
AVIAJAM - NIZHNY NOVGOROD LANDMARKS MSFS
Evgeny
Better than nothing, but still far from good. Only one of two Bor bridges is changed. The stadium looks like a cheap plastic toy. Chkalov stairs still contain some strange buildings. I understand that it costs only 5 euros, but I'd pay 3-4 times more for a good landmarks (at least all the bridges) and UWGG scenery if it existed. Это лучше, чем ничего, но оставляет желать лучшего. Борский мост сделан лишь на половину, стадион выглядит как дешевая пластиковая игрушка, на Чкаловской лестнице всё ещё растут какие-то здания. За 5 евро пойдёт за неимением лучшего, но я бы с радостью заплатил в 3-4 раза больше за качественный продукт, если бы он был.

A nice enhancement! Would also be nice if a developer could tackle the virtual pilot/co-pilot with various accents.
