It is indeed...(on both counts).

VC and 2D cockpits, too. Roll rate is somewhat less than a Pitts Special. Wink

I really hate it when some one posts a plane picture for FS and doesn't say where they get it. WHERE?

Don't hate!


www.sim-outhouse.com/i...y=aircraft

Damn, I'm good!
(Of course, this is only at the biggest freakin' runway in the world maybe...at Edwards AFB)

Go to the gallery to see big versions of these...nice plane!

Thanks Stoopy! I got it and installed it... Wink

You're right Ascout, BIG plane feel is almost an understatement. Takes a while to get this bird off the ground and a L O N G rw to set it back down on too...lol

Nice model though and worth the time it takes to get it.

I did it on one of those short runways that we are flying to on sunday. The only drawback that I saw was no autopilot control. If it has one, I didn't see it. If you open the hatch while airborn, watch it, the pilot and back seater get ejected. No open hatches while on the ground.

On Walter Boynes' site, he notes it was one of his favorite aircraft and one adjustment from the other stuff he flew was the 6,000' per minute decents they had to do (because of atrocious fuel consumption) when making landing approaches. There's a pic of this process, gear down, light flaps, and nose over at about 40 degrees! I have to try this!

OK, so it felt like cheating to land at Edwards...thus, I give you "Phu Bai" (6,000' runway, and narrow...bets used to be taken on getting 707's airborne from there during the war).

Line up early, and greaser 'er in. I got stopped in maybe 4,500', not bad.

My takeoff was a little.....abrupt...my tail gunner said his seat cushion was getting warm....
