In the 1930s the Grumman Aircraft Company was looking for ways to promote its new line of fast bi-plane fighter-bombers, so in 1936 an F3F-1 was specially modified for high-stress manoeuvring and aerobatics, and equipped with a 1,000hp Wright Cyclone engine.

The standard F3F-1 of the period had a two-blade propeller but the new aircraft was fitted with a three-blade Hamilton Standard propeller of 9ft diameter. With this power plant on board the aircraft could achieve speeds of close to 300 mph and could climb at 2,000 feet per minute. Impressive performance for 1936!

Delivered to the Gulf Oil Company, the aeroplane was flown extensively by Major Al Williams, Gulf’s chief test pilot, to demonstrate the new techniques employed in tactical dive-bombing. Dubbed ‘Gulfhawk II’, the aircraft and its pilot toured the USA and Europe demonstrating high-speed aerobatics and precision flying.

In 1943, the duo was requested by General ‘Hap’ Arnold to make a three-month tour of US airfields to demonstrate airmanship and precision flying. The aircraft made its last demonstration flight in 1948 before being retired to the Smithsonian in Washington D.C. The glossy, brightly painted orange machine still hangs there as a reminder of those barnstorming days.

The F3F-1 evolved into the F3F-3 and became the Navy’s last biplane fighter. It was used to train many of the young pilots destined to become aces in the Second World War.

Works as advertised, may take a little while to get FSUIPC7 Wasm to kick in but after it does it is very impressive.

It is wonderful that every detail is carefully made. I hope you will continue to build local airports in Japan. I will definitely buy it.

MOKUI - PASI SITKA AIRPORT - MSFS
Denny
Wonderful add-on! I visited Sitka (by boat) a few years ago and this really enhances the area. The airport looks great, and the bridge and harbor models really flesh out the town. Would be cool to see a few of the local landmark buildings and park details added just to flesh out an already awesome package, but there's way more than enough here to justify the price now! Highly recommended for Alaska fliers.
SKYLINE SIMULATIONS - KROA ROANOKE MSFS

Performance is not good on my system. The terminal seems to swallow up the framerates. The ground textures look like a chess game around the terminal and taxiways. An update is sorely needed.
BIJAN HABASHI - 4 SEASON PACK V7.2 - MSFS
Mark
Was a big fan of this product when it first came out. However, has not been updated in a long time and is now causing performance problems with some of latest sim releases. Really hope they don't abandon this product.

By far my favourite GA aircraft for MSFS to date. Loving the details and performance of this plane. Sound is awesome and the different cockpit variants are cool too. Got myself both GTN750s just because of this beautiful plane!
SWISSMILSIM - DE HAVILLAND VAMPIRE DH-100 MSFS

One piece of information concerning the commentary on the texts in the cockpit of the Vampire: Switzerland being a quadrilingual country, the choice of inscriptions in the cockpit of military aircraft from the 1940-1990 period was delicate. The German-speaking majority did not want to impose itself too much! And as it was the time of the Second World War, making a distinction with the German neighbour was probably important. As a result, all military aircraft had French cockpit markings (with some exceptions on later instruments). The SwissMilSim Vampire being a faithful reproduction of the aircraft of the time, the texts are in French. As for completing with the original English versions with faithful instrumentation-
s, SwissMilSim has done so in FSX and P3D versions with little sales success!
