Post subject: FINALLY a fine BEARCAT!!!!!

Once again, fine work by the team of Michel Migaud, Jean Pierre Bourgeois, Jean Pierre Langer, Benoit Dubé, Marc Hardouin - the same folks who brought us that excellent Mig-15 a few weeks back!

Grumman F8F Bearcat in two liveries: one F8F-1B: serial 5172, personnal aircraft of CDT CAVAROZ, Indochina CAT-BI 1951, and one F8F-2 : code 98, US NAVY.

It's been a LONG TIME coming. Previous to this the only freeware FS9 Bearcat I knew of was a converted CFS2 model (not bad!) and the recently-freeware formerly-payware one from AlphaSim with a VC that has non-working gauges.....(they do have a F7F Tigercat if you're interested.... http://www.alphasim.co.uk/fwd.html

But THIS one blows 'em all away. Longtime fans of the Grumman "cat" family finally have the ultimate single piston-engine fighter aircraft available to them, the pinnacle of piston fighter technology....with a gorgeous VC and challenging flight characteristics......this is one HOT ship, as you'll find out the first few seconds that you crack the throttle open down the runway (use lots of right pedal and ease the power in gently to get her rolling while keeping the tail planted until the rudder has enough speed for authority - you DONT need full power to get her off the ground!)

Download link!

Click click click click hurry click -->http://library.avsim.net/esearch.php?CatID=fs2004ac&DLID=87890

Super, but where's the pics?

Here!

DIG%20the%20authentic%20articulatin'%20gear%20mechanism-dealybob!!! (plus%20it's%20got%20foldin'%20wings%20and%20a%20workin'%20tailhook%20for%20them%20carrier%20ops!) Indochina%20VC: US%20Navy%20VC: Handles%20good%20on%20final..... Sets%20down%20true%20like%20a%20champ!!!

Perfect plane for boring holes in the sky all day long.....a GeeBee R1 with guns!!

While waiting on PROPS registration information, got this thing downloaded and flew around Meigs. Even landed it. Getting hooked on these power jobs.

Yes indeedy!

And speaking of PROPS, although we won't see this Bearcat in the racing class....notice I specified this plane as "the finest single-engine piston fighter"....because the P-38L was quite a plane also IMHO, and smart money may be on it in the next PROPS season... Wink
