Oleg and crew have outdone themselves. PF is a masterpiece, awesome fun factor! Congratulations team. I spent the last hour practicing traps with the F4U-1D. I know Corsairs tried to remain in a bank as long as possible for a good view of the deck. My attempts resulted in one good trap in about 20 tries, very difficult to repeat. The AOA needed is just high enough to make deck spotting next to impossible. Thank God for great low speed capability. I think a 20 foot hook would help me alot http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif (maybe future patch). What a blast! It actually gave me a real appreciation for the guys that did this for real. They no doubt had cahones the size of bowling balls http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif

Nice screen shot but the nose is a little down. My guess is you made the trap but had a prop strike.

All pilots from all countries had to be brave IMHO.

I thought Corsairs weren't exactly used from carriers except by the British very late in the war?
Something about them not being very safe to land on a carrierdeck for different reasons.

Clean trap with two bounces.

Actually, it was a bouncing bolter. This plane will bounce off the deck pretty easy, tough to keep the hook down, a good challenge for me. You have to keep the tail down and obviously the nose up (can you say hard to see the deck?). I am working on my banking, flairing, and my ham fist! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

It's a Spanish word, and it isn't cahones. It's cojones -the 'j' is pronounced aspired, as the English phonem 'kh'. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

I'm having a hard enough time landing planes on the deck when they are not damaged..imagine what it must be like when your plane is damaged.

Also it's not a very nice thing to grab a wire with to much airspeed, i once thought i didn't catch a wire, so i went full power again and pulled up :P but got slammed down hard at the end of the deck. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

yer the story gose (karnt remember the detales ,but)

two carriers one UK, the other US. some one on the US carrier lettes the brits new that thalle neve get the corseres back on dek wen thay try to land them back on ship. the FAA (as usuel http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/icon_twisted.gif ) bet that thy can. the US pilots and G-cruw forll for it huke-line-and-sinker. later sume of the corsers T/O do some sercint of the patten (most the US carriers crew are on deck redy to see the pilot ditch) see ALL the corseres make GOOD landings

Very nice Dux! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif I did not know that. But, the word I meant to say needed an extra E for emphasis, as in "CAHONEES"...good old American slang http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
