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.

DOUBLE T - EL DORADO INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT MSFS
Andres
Nice to see this airport finally getting some love in MSFS, but it lacks detail (especially outside the main terminal). Maintanance, General Aviation and military complex are seriously lacking. Textures can also improve, and a better quality and up to date ground mesh wouldnt hurt. that said, this is way better than the stock airport if you fly here often. After all, this is priced at Orbx range and does not come even close to the same quality level... I will be happy to give a better rating if the developer gets incremental improvements rolled out, as this scenery has potential to really get up there quality-wise.

Propriano is a very nice little flying club to take off and have a tour of Corsica. The buildings are well modeled and it is pleasant to walk around.

While I really want to love this, because I love warbirds, and especially unique ones, this is currently leaving me very disappointed. I've tried to fly it twice, both times result in unrecoverable engine failure shortly after take-off. I go to the manual to see what I'm doing wrong, and the manual is ONLY in French. Next main issue, is for the asking price, 2D gauges are a no-go. Shoul-
d this receive some much needed further development, I'll happily give this another try, but until then, it's going to sit in the hangar and collect dust.

Looks like a nice aircraft inside & out. Documentation is easy to understand. -
I would have given it 4 to 5 stars, except there is no paint kit or plain white textures so that I can paint the aircraft in our VA livery. For this reason, I am only giving it a 2 star rating.

Is a great scenery but textures are very repetitive.

I dont know what else to say except I am completely "GODSMACKED". Unbelievably good job. Completely impressed. Great job! I cant wait for your next scenery projects, I will certainly purchase again and again. Sincerely, Dan

JEAN PIERRE
Finally an affordable price for this Nimitz series carriers simulation. Fully P3Dv5.3 compatible. No, the P3D simulator is not dead and the MSFS game is unable to provide such a simulation (not even the ship's wake).

Would be an instant buy, if the displayed MIG29 would be a MIG21 as in real life.
