    Oh, yeah, you can say that again! Amazing how everyone gets used to it, compensate for it, hardly realize it unless they stare at the horizon --

    Great write up.

    By the way, the carrier is turning to starboard, not "right" -- to be perfectly accurate.

    The "ladder lines" painted along the edge of the defined landing area are nearly parallel on big decks, but at night, the lights on the end of the angle are skewed in relation to the ladder line...

    Before angled decks, carrier passes were made at a very shallow glide slope angle and a very short straightaway groove distance, following LSO signals. The start was just a little above flight deck...

    Great detail!

    A few things to notice about that era. I made a supposed 9 month deployment on "SHANG" in VA-83 in 1967-68, which turned into 11 months when our relieving carrier had some problems...

    I agree with PRB - it is an excellent model.

    The VC is especially well done. The most outstanding thing to me is the accurately modeled AJB-3/AJB-7 All Attitude Indicator (AAI), which until...

    I have used the CS 727 and 707 series extensively in FS2004, and upgraded versions in FSX Steam. IMHO, they both are about the best, most accurate tubeliners made and very good on frame rates with a...

    I wouldn't be surprised if he pulled out of a strafing run too late or delayed his pullup/turn required to avoid a ricochete (sp?) round. Happens every once in awhile, especially if he "bunted over"...

    I flew a couple of these as a student pilot in the early 60's - they were so bastardized I doubt the FAA ever paid attention to how they were modded. What STCs existed then I am not sure.

    An under-represented, very important airplane. IMHO, a better plane than the J-3 (could fly from the front solo!), as docile, a little better performance in most areas.

    I haven't tested everything to a gnat's rump, but I bet there are few if any glitches in P3D4. I use windows 10. P3D4.4, NVIDIA 970 card.
