Follow the link and watch the vid! It's a black and white training video that goes over basic F4U procedure (take-off, landing, acrobatics). It's about 20+ minutes and very fascinating (to me). It also includes stall scenarios. Go check it out if you haven't already seen it! If you like it, bump this post to the top so others can check it out, too.

Excellent...

It's watching something like that that makes you glad the flight models arn't TOO accurate. And very glad you have the "E" key option !

amazingly complex flight operations... one wonders how they managed to fight while fidgeting with all those knobs and levers ;-)

A shame? Do you realize how complicated that all was? That would be too much of a burden for a sim, we aren't expected to go to flight school you know.

Thanks for the link.

I love stuff like that- to see how men at the time talked about these planes we love so well.
